Customer Review

After nearly 8 years Roccat (Kone, Kone XTD), I needed a mouse with more buttons because I now primarily been playing MMORPG. Optically most appealing was there for me the Lioncast LM30.

In direct comparison with Roccat Lioncast has at least visually, but no chance. The top dog when it comes to product presentation just nobody does something before. Even the packaging of the LM30 is very sober compared to Kone XTD. The driver software is at Lioncast kept functional while working at Roccat with much pomp and circumstance. The housing of Lioncast LM30 is not unique but a universal housing which then printed the respective manufacturer only with its own logo. The UtechSmart Venus 50 and uRage MMORPG look optically exactly the same as the Lioncast LM30. Unlike a Roccat the Lioncast is not made of one piece but consists of several plastic parts. In terms of appearance, the switch from Roccat to Lioncast is a step backwards.

But the look alone makes a good mouse is not made. And just when more buttons are required, the Easy-Shift function of Kone is far from done and a Roccat Tyon costs shameless 100 euros, the fun to stop just. Roccat would offer an MMO mouse, I would not have changed. Logitech is not an option because the appearance of the G600 is just awful. And Razer also ruled out because a driver offering works exclusively through the cloud and therefore requires a permanent Internet connection, is as bold as unnecessary.

Since then no longer many well-known mouse manufacturers remain. Lioncast me was previously even no concept, due to the many positive reviews and not least because of the low price, I wanted to give the mouse a chance.

40 euros is a reasonable price, which is the face value of 70 euros but compared to branded products too high and I would not have paid. The Lioncast LM30 receives from me 4 stars because as already mentioned the price is reasonable and the look is quite appealing. The driver works quite well, although the programming of a key combo is a bit tricky. I wanted to program Shift + 1 and the driver has always checked only 1. Only after a few attempts, I'm draufgekommen that Shift + 1 must still hold pressed while you confirm with OK, the key combo. Only then, the mouse really remembers the key combination. The driver is otherwise clear and functional with no frills. The macro programming I've have not watched.

The side thumb buttons are a really great thing and function properly. You are not lightweight but not too stiff. I have no too big thumbs me yet verklicke sometimes. But this may not the mouse. The many buttons on the thumb you just have to practice for a while. Sometime it works but excellent.

I am so far completely satisfied ... and at some point certainly about Roccat away ... :-)
