Capsule Review: ROCCAT's Kone XTD and Kone Pure Gaming Mice


The "dirty" secret of PC peripherals is that the word "gaming" can often mean any combination of two things: robust quality and gaudy design. Most mechanical keyboards tend to be geared towards gamers, and likewise, most high quality mice tend to be...

ROCCAT's Kone mice were incredibly pleasant surprises. Usually doing these peripheral reviews is just interesting for me because I get to see what other vendors are producing before going back to my Logitech G500, but having had time to play with the...

Roccat Kone XTD


Although the Roccat Kone XTD ($89.99) is an update of the Roccat Kone[+] Gaming Mouse, the differences between the two are so few and incremental that they can be fraternal twins. With the exception of its more precise 8,200dpi laser sensor and a...

Fits comfortably in the hand. Very precise. EasyShift[+] doubles functionality without adding clutter. Killer design

Pricey. No wireless connectivity option. For right-handed users only

By adding a few incremental changes to the Roccat Kone[+], the Roccat Kone XTD makes for a well-designed, highly customizable gaming mouse that's a great choice for gamers, provided they don't already have the Kone[+].

Roccat Kone Pure and XTD Gaming Mice Review


Lets start in the order that I received the mice in: Roccat Kone Pure first. The design of the mouse mimics the very successful Kone [+], and aesthetically it is very pleasing. The one thing that surprised me out of the box is just how small it is. My...

Terrifying, isn't it? It's made me jump out of my seat many a night. Before we conclude, I have one last caveat emptor. The mice come with a very interesting feature that you need to watch out for. The mouse 5 button is a macro key for the Easy Shift...

The Kone from ROCCAT makes another appearance. Let's see what has changed in just over a year that gives this Kone mouse the XTD moniker.

Roccat Kone XTD Gaming mouse


There are so many gaming mice on the market these days so how should a normal gamer or consumer know how to choose which one is the right one? Today we are going to try to show you at least one mouse option; Roccat, who sent us their latest gaming...

Comfortable ; Nice looking ; A lot of buttons ; Sleeved cable ; Weights

Wont work with USB hub or front USB ports usually in the front of the case

I like this mouse! It feels perfect in the hand, and it is obvious to me that they have put a lot of effort and thought into shaping it well for the hand. It also has more than enough buttons and with the “Easy-shift” feature you can have even “more”...

ROCCAT Kone XTD Gaming Mouse Review

Expert review by: Steven Iglesias-Hearst (



This time last year ROCCAT released the KONE[+] to replace the original KONE Gaming Mouse, this year there are two upgrades for the KONE gaming mouse line - the KONE XTD and the KONE Pure. In this article Benchmark Reviews will be looking at the ROCCAT...

8200dpi Pro-Aim R3 Laser Sensor ; EasyShift[+] and EasyAim are game changers ; Roccat Talk compatible ; Loads of color customisation and effect options ; 22 functions thanks to EasyShift ; 8 programmable buttons + solid 4D scroll wheel ; Tracking and...

Takes 28 seconds to apply settings ; Weights are a pain to swap out ; Drivers not included - Must be downloaded from Roccat website ; Macro creation is over complicated

In this section I am going to write a brief five point summary on the following categories; Performance, Appearance, Construction, Functionality and Value. These views are my own and help me to give the Roccat KONE XTD Max Customization gaming mouse a...

Roccat refines its range-topping mouse, but the high price holds it back

The feel of the mouse in the hand is very comfortable, with extended periods of gaming offering no issues with comfort. All the main buttons were easy to reach (apart from that button in front of the mouse wheel) and I never felt the mouse was at risk...

Roccat Kone XTD 8200 DPI Gaming Mouse Review


Roccat's gaming mouse portfolio sees the newest leader to its flagship series. Can the 8200 DPI-capable Kone XTD prove that it deserves to sit at the summit of Roccat's critically acclaimed mouse catalogue?

Impressive ergonomics – very comfortable ; Good range of DPI configurations ; 12 individual mouse buttons ; Up to 22 button functions using the Easy-Shift[+] feature ; 4-dimensional scroll wheel ; 4x 5g additional weights ; Roccat Talk compatible...

Limited left hand potential ; Sluggish software unless you make use of a work-around (as detailed above) ; Expensive

KitGuru says: An excellent mouse for hardcore gamers of any genre, Roccat’s Kone XTD is more than worthy of the company’s flagship gaming mouse status and its £75 price tag.
