Roccat KONE[+] Gaming Mouse Review
Full Disclosure: The product sample used in this article has been provided by Roccat.
In a market segment rife with choice, any manufacturer which wants to stand out must innovate their way past the rest of the crowd or use clever marketing techniques to dupe their target market. Fortunately for us here at Benchmark Reviews, Roccat chose to innovate when they created their KONE[+] Gaming Mouse. I honestly believed that there wasn't much more that could be done in the field of pointing and clicking mouse technology but I was wrong.
Roccat has introduced three great features unique to the KONE[+] mouse and also equipped it with a 6000dpi Pro Aim laser for some extremely responsive pointing ability. The first innovation is the 4D scroll wheel, which not only scrolls up and down and acts as a button, but also tilts left and right giving you two extra functions without taking up any more space. Secondly is their tracking and distance and control unit, an on board processor that can adapt the KONE[+] to work at its best on any flat surface. Lastly is the introduction of EasyShift[+]. By assigning one of the side buttons to EasyShift[+] you can effectively double the amount of functions the KONE[+] can perform, much like using the shift button of your keyboard, a feature that is further extended by Roccat Talk.
In this review we will have a good look at the design and features of the Roccat KONE[+] mouse and deliver our verdict on how it performs and functions.
