Top processing, but unfortunately a crucial error

Roccat Kone Pure Optical Core Performance Gaming Mouse (4000 dpi, USB, 1,8m) anthracite (Personal Computers)

Customer Review

I have this mouse rather than ordered, because I would be a hardcore gamer, but because I was looking for a high-quality processed mouse that can withstand the normal stresses and strains of everyday life long. My old Logitech MX310 is namely after 10 years faithful service and the loss of all Gleitfüßchen finally the well-deserved retirement. A mouse this quality I wanted to again. On the brand Roccat I became aware, because I have the Kone Pure randomly found in local electrical discounter. The processing and the form have approached me immediately, which is why I have also taken the same mouse. However, it has acted in this case the laser version of Kone Pure. Presumably it was pure imagination, but somehow I got the mouse even after nearly a week still somehow "hakelig" before, so I had to unfortunately give back. In the meantime I had discovered on the network that there are the Kone Pure in an optical variant. This brings me now to the next review of the Kone Pure Optical:

Processing: The mouse makes at first sight a top solid state. Nothing creaks or rattles and the keys have a pleasant pressure point low. This is now even with other well known brands not always the case, as I found out quickly. Therefore my not actually planned rebranding to Roccat ...

Software: The software leaves nothing to be desired. From the DPI number, via the scrolling speed down to the color of the illuminated logo on the "tail" of the mouse, everything can be set so ziehmlich. Even statistics about which button was pressed as often, provides the software. Useless, but quite funny to watch. A driver CD is not in. The software needs to be loaded directly from the network and includes almost 18 MB. This should pose less of a problem these days but well. On The Contrary. The homepage Roccat is clear and clearly structured so that you can find everything immediately. Probably you will find the driver in this way even quicker than you after 1-2 years if necessary first have to dig out a driver CD from a drawer somewhere.

The big BUT: Then why do I give the mouse in spite of good workmanship and comprehensive software only 3 stars may now certain of one or other issues. Very easily. The mouse has a decisive unfortunately (for me) disadvantage. The "lift-off distance" mouse is just under 4 - 5 mm unfortunately insanely high even for an optical mouse. In practice, it was unfortunately hardly possible for me to put the mouse, without the cursor while on the screen 1 - 2 centimeters is wobbled back and forth. Certainly, one could also get used to it here, by raising the mouse just higher, but even my above-mentioned 10 year old Logitech mouse was 1 - 2 mm lift-off distance from. For a mouse this price range therefore unfortunately an absolute "No Go".

Actually, I would now say at this point make a recommendation to the company Roccat to eliminate these errors quickly, but this is not necessary, because Roccat has the problem apparently already recognized himself and the Kone Pure in the "Military Edition" with another optical sensor fitted (R4 instead of R3). This has a corresponding control function in the driver menu. In addition, it can scan a maximum of 5000 instead of 4000 dpi. Does one not necessarily have, but it can not hurt either. Otherwise, the two mice - except for the color scheme - absolutely identical. I now have the Kone Pure Military Edition and am very pleased so far. No annoying "Gehopse" of the cursor more when lifting.

Conclusion: If you want to use the Kone Pure in the optical version, should rather bite "the bullet" and resort to Kone Pure militaryedition. Although this is currently (as of 30.12.2014) with just under 69.90 15.00 more expensive than the Kone Pure Optical, in my opinion, the charge in direct comparison but definitely worth it.

My long-term experience for life I'll gladly subsequently add to this review.
