Roccat Kova[+] Optical USB Gaming Mouse

 

Roccat is a European manufacturer of gaming products that's becoming increasingly popular in North America. Their sporty design and bright lighting makes it an ideal eye-candy for gaming setups. The Kova[+] is one of two gaming mice that Roccat has...

3200DPI optical sensor more than enough for most gamers ; EasyShift[+] allows up to 16 macro keys and customization ; Almost every aspect is customizable, from lighting to scroll speed, all done in one place ; Slick modern design ; Integration with...

Configurations takes over 40 seconds to apply ; Unable to customize weight ; Hard to clean dust off and keeps finger smudges ; Auxiliary buttons are not shaped ideally and offers too much resistance for critical macros

The Roccat Kova[+] is a great light-weight mouse packed full of functionality. In terms of comfort and tactile feedback, it may not be the best in the price range, but it certainly holds up its end of the bargain in terms of performance. While optical...

Roccat Kova+ Mouse

 

Quite some time ago we reviewed the Roccat Kova mouse that was a combination of a mobile mouse and a gaming mouse, it performed well and we were impressed with the performance. Today we got the new upgraded version named Kova+, we are going to take a...

Good performance ; Good software ; Fits both right and left handed ; Good size

No weights

This is a new and improved Roccat Kova+ Gaming mouse, I think they have managed to improve the mouse with the few bits that it might have been lacking in the past. The mouse works very well in both gaming and in normal daily usage, I find it to be...

Roccat Kova Plus Gaming Mouse Review

 

ROCCAT have released an updated version of the KOVA, the KOVA[+]. We first looked at the original KOVA in late 2009 and liked its overall performance so were keen to see if they could improve on it as they did with the previous [+] model.

With the KOVA[+] ROCCAT have managed to enhance the original and essentially it improves on the previous version without changing any of the features we liked. The software suite really opens up the power of the KOVA[+], and with the EasyShift[+]...

Roccat Kova [+] review

 

Roccat's Kova [+] mouse is a jack-of-all-trades that caters to almost every type of gamer. Its ambidextrous design will suit both left- and right-handers, twitch-style players can raise the sensitivity up to a hefty 3,200dpi and the LED mood lights are...

A high-spec gaming mouse at a reasonable price

Roccat Kova[+] review

 

It's easy to tell that the Roccat Kova[+] mouse is targeted at gamers. It has the angular, gothic appearance of Christian Bale's Batmobile, colours light up periodically for no good reason and, most importantly, there's masses of customisable...

The Roccat Kova[+] looks good and feels pretty nice, and we were impressed by its comprehensive range of software customisability. But a price tag of £44 is hefty for a mouse, even by the standards of dedicated gamers, and we’re not sure the Roccat...

Roccat Kova[+]

 

Custom lighting system ; Excellent software ; EasyShift button gives more flexibility ; Ambidextrous

No indicator on mouse to confirm your current settings

The Kova was fantastic, and the Kova[+] now adds Roccat's great software into the mix. We'd recommend this one for all.

ROCCAT Kova+ Review

 

ROCCAT have upgraded their popular gaming mouse the Kova with some great new features and customisation. The all new Kova[+] Gaming Mouse!

Accurate, precise ; Powerful software ; Highly customisable ; Great touch & feel

Light, no weight system

Just like the original Kova, the Kova[+] is an overwhelming success. If you liked the Kova, then you are going to love the Kova[+]. In similar fashion as they did with the Kone, ROCCAT have gone away and devised ways in which they can improve an...

Good while it worked

 

Overall I enjoyed using this mouse while it worked, but unfortunately the build quality seems a little lacking.

Comfortable ; Good sensor ; Lighting looks nice ; Nice array of software features

Middle mouse button stopped working within a year ; Something inside broke off and has been rattling around for a while ; Right click broke as of today
