Conclusion: German peripheral manufacturer ROCCAT recently upgraded its gaming mouse line-up with the release of the Kone XTD. Based entirely on Kone [+] from an ergonomic viewpoint, but now touting an upgraded sensor, beefed-up processor and better-built buttons, the £75 XTD is designed to appeal to the well-heeled gamer. The Kone XTD is a reasonably plain-looking mouse whose soft-touch, rubberised shell provides more tactile response than ordinary plastic.
Conclusion: By adding a few incremental changes to the Roccat Kone[+], the Roccat Kone XTD makes for a well-designed, highly customizable gaming mouse that's a great choice for gamers, provided they don't already have the Kone[+].
Pros: Fits comfortably in the hand. Very precise. EasyShift[+] doubles functionality without adding clutter. Killer design.
Cons: Pricey. No wireless connectivity option. For right-handed users only.

Roccat Kone Pure Gaming Mouse Review (w/ Hiro Gaming Surface)
6 December 2012
Excerpt: 24 Flares 24 Flares × As the second mouse from Roccat’s updated Kone series to hit our labs, the Kone Pure looks to offer the same excellent gaming performance as its sibling – the Kone XTD – while reducing the physical dimensions and retail price. Does the Kone Pure have what it takes to impress as much as the ‘Must Have’ Kone XTD did?
Conclusion: The Roccat Kone[+] is Roccats high-end mouse and it’s easy to see why. With the ability to have 24 different controls right at your fingers (literally), extreme accuracy, tracking, and performance, the Kone should be any gamers ideal choice. The included software, with it’s wide range of options, is definitely the best I’ve seen on any gaming mouse.
Excerpt: 1 Flares 1 Flares × We were recently impressed by the Roccat Pyra gaming mouse which was designed specifically for gamers on the move. This only appeals to a small section of the market however as most gamers will prefer a full-size mouse with a better specification.
Excerpt: Tempo fa vi abbiamo proposto la recensione del Roccat Kone Pure, una nuova versione, se vogliamo lite, del vecchio Kone+ disponibile a questo indirizzo. Il modello Optical è praticamente identico al modello laser, ma trova impiegato un sensore ottico Avago 3090 già visto su altri mouse ottici di fascia media, caratterizzato da una risoluzione massima di 4000dpi.
Pros: Implementazione ottimale del Avago 3090, Ergonomia, Scroll
Cons: Implementazione ottimale del Avago 3090, Ergonomia, Scroll
Conclusion: ROCCAT's Kone XTD er efter min mening en af de bedste, hvis ikke den bedste mus på markedet pt.! Jeg har personligt valgt at udskifte min lettere slidte CM Storm Sentinel Advance II ud med ROCCAT's Kone XTD. Derudover kan man også tilkøbe sig ROCCAT's Isku FX og "koble" disse to produkter sammen, så er man i hvert fald sikret en masse gode timer med gaming og meget mere. Ydelsen er fortrinlig og virkelig i en klasse for sig selv.
