This cat’s got massive claws.
Roccat is a high-end PC accessories manufacturer from Germany, so I can understand if you haven’t heard of them before. Particularly because they have only been distributing their products in Europe until now. Thankfully Uber PC is bringing over some of their highly competitive range over to the UAE, and today I’ll look at one of their highest-end mice, the Roccat Kone [+] (Kone Plus).
To start things off, the Kone Plus has a 6000dpi laser sensor, which, coupled with the Tracking & Distance Control Unit (TDCU), makes the Kone Plus one of the best gaming mouse to be used on most surfaces. The Kone + was equally precise on my wooden IKEA table as well as my Razer Destructor mouse pad. Keep in mind that the TDCU needs to be calibrated in the drivers to be successful. The Kone Plus also boasts a 1000MHz polling rate with 30Gs of acceleration.
On the outside, the Roccat Kone Plus may not look entirely different from other high-end mice, but its suave design with sharp edges up front harkens back to its distinctly German design. The entire top surface and right and left sides are covered in a smooth rubberized material. The left and right sides are also lined with a transparent strip of plastic that houses the 4 multicolor LEDs. Under the Kone Plus is the tracking laser, the low friction mouse feet as well as the housing of the weights. The Kone Plus comes with 4x 5g weights. I found the Kone Plus to be more comfortable with all 20g of weight inside; your mileage may vary. Without the weights, I must say that I found the Kone Plus to be too light.
