Lasted 2 years... but some inhibiting problems

William Z., Newegg
10 December 2014
  • Summary: I do a lot of 3d modeling and gaming, so I do use the mouse wheel heavily, so that could be why it broke. However, being unable to open the mouse nor clean the gunk out of it was an extreme downside. About an hour ago, after some time of acting up, my mouse began freezing and disconnecting (not physically), then I unplugged it and felt the USB end of the cord was extremely hot (burnt my finger a little bit), and the cord's end that goes into the mouse burnt my hand as...
  • Pros: Great DPI control, very nice and raw input Lasted 2 years before giving out Nice illumination features, high amounts of customization 7 buttons (not including EASY-SHIFT features)
  • Cons: Mouse wheel axle broke about 3 months in Impossible to open mouse without destroying protective padding Gunk is extremely hard to clean because of this Mouse wheel became very difficult to scroll without using a special technique after the axle broke Driver sometimes interfering with windows recognition of the mouse when plugged in

Decent price, but a little awkward.

  • Summary: I bought this mouse last week and is the first gaming mouse I have ever bought. I mainly play FPS games and wanted a mouse with more buttons because I found it annoying having to cycle through weapons using the wheel or number keys. It has two extra buttons on each side and I find 3 out of the 4 very awkward to press when trying to be accurate. The one button I don't find awkward is a "shift" button, which is used to press with another key.

Favorite mouse but lasted a year and a half

Ratspootin, Amazon

  • Summary: Yes, the lights are gimmicky but it's a beautiful claw-grip mouse that fits my hand very well (female). You don't have to have your fingers reach the very end of the mouse like you do with the Razer Naga--for the first year or so. The left button is so worn that it's double or triple clicking now, and trying to drag and drop items, or even to highlight text, is getting impossible.

Good, but better out there.

  • Summary: First if you are thinking of getting this mouse, get this one instead: http://www.amazon.com/Razer-Abyssus-Optical-Gaming-Mouse/dp/B002XLR0JI/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1392488918&sr=8-2&keywords=razer+abyssus The Roccat mouse is pretty good and felt great! But it is seriously prone to static electricity. I'll touch it and it will screw itself up and i have to do a hard reset on my computer.

Average at best - Better alternatives

Webtrance, Amazon

  • Summary: Short and simple - The Kova + is average at best. I have medium sized hands and find the mouse too small. It's put together nicely and has decent lighting effects, though it still feels light and sort of cheap in my opinion. The most critical fail is the fact you cannot remap the left and right click. Big mistake!

Could be better...

  • Summary: The mouse has a nice weight, but its shape is not so perfect, the buttons are very sensitive so you end up clicking them without knowing just with the weight of yout fingers. But the material is good. Anyway, almos a perfect mouse.

  • Pros: Nice look with the customizable leds, nice feel to it.
  • Cons: Accuracy is garbage. On horizontal and vertical lines it was decent but on diagonals it was extremely unaccurate. Mouse wheel click takes an insane amount of force. this is a HUGE nono for me. I use mousewheel click all the time.

Great mouse but...

Sandra, Amazon
23 March 2013
  • Summary: Really good mouse for claw grip type of gamers. Nice variety of led colors and 7 buttons. (really there are only 4 but one of them is a shift button) Comfortable for small and big hands alike. Nice dpi speed. The only flaw (and it is a major one), is that there is glue leaking out of the thumb rest pad. And this not only happened to me but a lot of people too. I wipe it out, but it keeps leaking. I have had other "mice" and this is the first one that have done that.

Kova + more like Bull $

  • Summary: Always check the top gaming mouse from 2012 and 2013 and you would find them listed here in newegg. Do your research first and get your good prices here.
  • Pros: The design of the mouse gives the user a choice which explains why I purchased this mouse in another store. I would put my newegg community on point with this device. To have a choice for coloring and its configuration is a plus, the feel is sturdy and its a great mouse for web surfers and media artist. Read my cons and I will save you a headache and cash. $$
  • Cons: OK here comes the boom, if your running Windows 7 64 Bit your in for a surprise. It seems they did not make this mouse 64 Bit friendly, It has compatibility issues. The drivers install successfully but the software goes into idle, then it will hang until you end task it. You get 7 buttons but you can only assign in a gaming 4 buttons. That's ridiculous, LMC (Left Mouse Click)+RMC+Wheel+1st Thumb buttons. So the last three remaining buttons are just there for brag righ...
