I bought the first Roccat Kone.
That was before I had heard rumors of breaking mouse wheel constructions.

After a year the mousewheel indeed broke.
I loved that mouse. It handled superbly and the customization options with LEDS were unique. The software was very good too. Never saw anything like it.
Because of the weak mousewheel construction of the first Roccat Kone I will not take the risk to buy this one. It is too expensive to have give up on me after a year.

Now I own a Logitech G700 gaming mouse. Less fancy, customization wise, but very sturdy because of the superior build quality. Gaming mice need to be strong and to be able to take punishment. Logitech never has disappointed me. I have never had to throw away a logitech (or a microsoft mouse) because it fell apart.

But I would buy this mouse if it had a more reliable construction than the first Kone.

Would be nice if you guys had some standardized testing for the sensor itself rather than simply listing its software features.

A lot of these laser sensors are still worse than the optical ones found in mice like the deathadder. doesn't make as much sense to buy a complicated mouse if it's fundamentally worse.

Thanks for the feedback. What do you suggest we do in terms of standardized testing?

I read someone making a quantitative test using a spinning disk, which tested true DPI, acceleration and accuracy.
