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


The Roccat Kone XTD is a well-designed, highly customizable gaming mouse that's a great choice for gamers.

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.

Roccat Kone XTD Review — A Mouse for All Seasons


The Kone XTD is a good mouse all around, and at one time, it was arguably the best all-purpose mouse on the market. Now, with the arrival of contenders like the Proteus Core and Razer's DeathAdder Chroma, the Kone XTD is beginning to show its age. Its...

Comfortable design ; Great software ; Useful Easy-Shift [+] functionality ; Tunable weights

Small flaws in both design and software ; Inconsistent lighting

The Roccat Kone XTD is still close to the top of the all-purpose gaming mouse hierarchy, held back by only a few forgivable foibles.

ROCCAT Kone XTD Gaming Mouse [Review]


I've mentioned this before, but if you plan on doing any PC gaming, you're going to want to get yourself a good gaming mouse and keyboard combo, preferably a combo that can talk to each other seamless control. For instance, if you go with ROCCAT gaming...

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...

Roccat Kone XTD Review and Ratings


Learning all of its features will take time, but the level of customization the Kone XTD delivers will fit nearly any gamer's needs in genres from leisurely MMO games to twitch shooters.

Highly customizable ; Profiles can auto-launch with applications ; Luxurious design

For right-handed users only ; Annoying voice feedback

The Roccat Kone XTD has more going on in both the software and the hardware than most gaming

ROCCAT Kone XTD Gaming Mouse Review


The ROCCAT Kone XTD Gaming mouse is powered by an 8200 DPI Pro Aim R3 laser sensor, a commanding 32-bit Turbo Core V2 72MHz ARM MCU processor, and the most

– Durable construction, doesn’t feel cheap ; – Comfortable ; – Solid driver interface for pure customization

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”...
