Totally focused and oblivious to his surroundings, the young man speaks urgently but quietly into his headset. One hand hovers above the keyboard, the other on the computer mouse. On the monitor screen in front of him a virtual figure is chasing through a labyrinth of alleys and dead-ends, veering off, flattening itself against walls, reacting to opponents – all this happening at split-second commands. The speed with which these cyber scenes unfold is breathtaking. It’s like being taking along for a spin with a Formula One pilot. This is Kai “Kaii” Schäfer, one of the best German professional gamers, at work.
Together with Thermaltake, renowned provider for electronic gaming accessories and based in Taiwan, BMW Group’s think tank of creative specialists, DesignworksUSA, has developed a high-end computer mouse specifically for tech pros like Schäfer and all those dedicated amateurs hoping to match their wits against the lightning-fast best. You need a speedy mouse for this.
ROCCAT (PRONOUNCED ROCK-ET) made a name for itself at Thinkcomputers when they allowed us to review the ISKU Illuminated Gaming Keyboard. The ISKU featured solid hardware accompanied by the most dynamic customization software I’ve ever seen. Today I’m taking a look at the ROCCAT Kone[+] – Max Customization Gaming Mouse. Let me start off by saying that MAX CUSTOMIZATION seems like an achievement I’d get in my favorite MMO. If MAX CUSTOMIZATION (I’ll stop with the CAP’s now) is anything similar to what the ISKU had, well, you can paint me blue and call me Babe (Pizza Pizza).
Today we get the chance to check out our second product from ROCCAT, the Kone[+] (Kone Plus). This gaming mouse is of course an updated version of ROCCAT’s original Kone, or as they call it “reloaded”. New features added to this mouse are the 6000dpi Pro-Aim Laser Sensor, the Easy-Shift[+] button and a massive upgrade to the driver. All of these features will be covered in the actual review of the mouse, but we have the unboxing for you today. Read on to check out the video and learn more about the ROCCAT Kone[+] Gaming Mouse!
If you’ve ever seen any of Cyborg’s mice you know they look nothing like anything else out there. The only way to really describe them is to say they look like something a cyborg would use or a transformer. I was always skeptical about the Cyborg mice, I mean yeah they look awesome, but are they actually comfortable? Well I can say after using the Cyborg M.M.O. 7 Gaming Mouse for quite a while now it is the most comfortable mouse I have used and I couldn’t imagine using another mouse ever again. Besides being comfortable it features 13 programmable buttons, a true 6400 DPI ‘Twin-Eye’ laser sensor, dual ActionLock buttons, a custom weight system and much more. Read on as we check out this truly unique gaming mouse!
As a hardcore gamer, I take my gaming tools seriously, and the mouse is no exception to a great PC gaming tool. I thought my Razer deathadder an I would be till death do us part, but when I received the Cooler Master Storm Sentinel Advance II, what’s a deathadder? This mouse with its bunch of awesome features totally was like slipping into new sheets. This mouse an I have a new relationship now, and I can say we bonded instantly.
When I first took a look at this mouse I thought to myself, how can this thing be comfortable? With such a radical design and unlike any other mice out there I was a little skeptical. The Cyborg M.M.O. 7 from Mad Catz is of course geared towards MMO gamers with its 13 programmable buttons, a dedicated DPI switch button, weight system, and a 6400 DPI laser sensor. Did I also mention you can take off different parts of the mouse and exchange them with ones that are provided to you. Read on to check out our unboxing and overview video.

Hamburg, February 28, 2012 – ROCCAT Studios today announced the upcoming availability of the Savu Mid-Size Hybrid Gaming Mouse – a competition device that “fusion welds” an ideal blend of performance and customizable features into a robust, perfectly-balanced, medium-size design.
The Savu offers a combination of unprecedented, true 4000 dpi optical sensor power, world famous Easy-Shift[+] technology allowing for advanced button configuration, and a lighting system delivering 16.8 million colors. What’s more, it’s the world’s first mouse to feature a stats and trophy system – called the ROCCAT Achievements Display, or R.A.D. — something previously known in similar form only in online gaming. Designed specifically for fans of mid-size gaming mice, the Savu also pampers the hands with an ergonomic right-hand thumb rest and soft-touch surface.
So ROCCAT’s booth was quite interesting, I mean “Ze German’s are coming, and this time we’ll play nice” is a tough slogan, so I wanted to see what they had to impress me. Put it this way, the 6000 DPI adjustable, East-Shift Button, Tracking & Distance Control Unit, Driver + Macro Manager, On-board Memory (yes you read that right), Weight system (yes you read that right again) did NOT let me down. This mouse is priced at $79.99 which is a highly competitive price to top name mouses on the market today. Check out the awesome interview Kathrine & Marcus provided and it will blow your mind on gaming peripherals!
