Excerpt: Mouse bungees has been around since 1998, back when Quake was quite a phenomenon in the gaming scene. Gamers used mouse bungees to keep the mouse cord managed for better gaming experience; without the mouse cord getting in the way, it's as if they're using a wireless mouse. Huge thanks to Play Interactive for sending us a ROCCAT Apuri review unit as the star of today's unboxing and review.
Pros: Eye pleasing design and LED illumination, Stable tripod design with rubber feet to further enhance the grip to your desk, Detachable mouse bungee for the ease of travel, Has a built in USB hub that supports up to 4 USB device, Comes with a power adapter to supply extra power for the USB hub, Illuminated USB ports for easier USB plug in when you're in a dark or low light environment, Easy to install and zero worries of damaging mouse cord
Cons: Comes in only one design, Rubberized surface is a dust magnet
Summary: At first glance, the entry fee of $39.99 is rather steep. However, factoring in the build quality, ease of use and fantastic bungee, the asking price is money well spent. The ROCCAT Apuri is a fine piece of PC hardware which should find a home on any desk or workstation.
Summary: Final Thoughts
ROCCAT knows what they are doing when it comes to gaming. They offer great gaming keyboards, mice and headsets. After you have all of those things covered what else can you add to the picture to make things better? The Apuri is something I really never considered getting, but after using it I would recommend it to anyone. Since connecting my mouse it has not left my desk. It makes moving my wired mouse around much smoother and easier.
Pros: Mouse bungee makes using a wired mouse much smoother, 4 port powered USB hub, Good build quality, Blue LED illumination
Conclusion: The best thing about the Apuri is that it does its job with such brilliance and subtlety that you’ll never notice its there, letting you concentrate on your game. It will always sit there on your table like a silent sentinel, or butler in this case, as it assists you in the most efficient way possible without coming in your way. Of course, the Apuri is primarily catered towards those with desktop computers, but I believe heavier notebooks (i.e.
Conclusion: The Apuri is a nice product, it looks good and does its job very well indeed; in fact I was surprised at how much I did enjoy having it as part of my desktop setup. However, the pricing for it is simply ludicrous. This product is more expensive than some gaming mice and this just makes it more likely that someone will upgrade something else instead of purchasing this quirky accessory, as without trying it you can’t really judge what it improves.
Pros: Looks good on your desk, Controls your mouse cable nicely, Acts as a USB hub
Summary: Le Roccat Apuri est un Mouse Bungee plus élaboré, mais aussi plus cher. S’il se révèle très efficace et que ses ports USB supplémentaires sont très pratiques, il n’en reste pas moins plus coûteux que ses concurrents. Car les 30€ demandés seront mieux investis dans une souris plus performante. En bref, un gadget bien geek, utile mais pas indispensable, surtout que des modèles moins poussés se trouvent aux alentours des 20€ chez Razer et CM Storm.
