- This is
review of Roccat Kone mouse.
Kone home page is http://www.roccat.org/Products/Gaming-Mice/ROCCAT-Kone/
- The best looking mouse ever.
parts of side lines aren't visible when looking at the mouse from the sides
because they have sharp slope
which gets them hidden behind non trasparent plastic part.
- If you
insert any of the included weights mouse becomes wobbly probably because
weights touch the desk.
claims this to be an utlra light mouse but this is far from truth since 118g
makes for one heavy mouse.
G1 80g are ultra light.
buttons are incredably hard to press.
is also incredebly hard to press.
you buy a mouse you have to decide either to have tilt wheel which is hard to
press or not to have tilt wheel
is easy to press.
are a lot of reports of wheel braking down after few weeks.
admits mistake, repalces faulty units and has issued a new version which
supposedly solves this problem.
- I find
the shape highly uncomfortable making my hand, especially fingers, heart a lot
after few minutes of use.
all those curves and depressions I just don't know how to hold the mouse.
side of the mouse has sharp edge which is very uncomfortable for ring finger.
is not enough space to put it on top of the mouse.
of the sharp shape it is uncomfartable to have it lean on it like you could
nicely do on Intelli Mouse.
it to the right side isn't comfortable either.
suspect the reason for this is that it was designed not to be comfortable but
to allow easy in game pickup which is
possible if the mouse is ergonomic like Ergo 525 or Ikari Steel Series.
are very problematic.
using them for few week I lost the ability to map customized macro to wheel
answer was that this is such a minor inconvience in a 100$ mouse packet with
lots of other features that they
intend to replace it.
guess the idea is if half of the button are working you should be fine playing
your favorite FPS.
you change custom macro you have to first assign different macro to the button
and then reassign this
macro again to that button eitherwise changes are not visible.
do not allow you to assign double or multiple clicks on the buttons.
- It is
also not possible to assign more then one action for each button.
is why I am trying to create my own drivers which would allow you following.
button is pressed once activae Copy, and if it was pressed twice activate Cut.
that button goes into Paste mode.
you press it once Paste is activated and if you press it twice Unformated Paste
way you can get a lot more functionality from the mouse then what is allowed by
feets have plastic frame and this solution collects a lot of dust unlike Razers
solution without plastic frame.
doesn't glide easily at all, nothing like Razer's gliding on ice feeling.
comes in sealed package so forget about returning it once it gets opened.
