ok so the mouse showed up today...........its pretty awesome........... figured since nobody here seems to have this mouse id talk about it and take some pics.

below are some pics of the box, contents, and a comparison with my wife's Logitech Anywhere MX mouse.

the next few pics are of the comparison between the Pyra and the Logitech Anywhere MX mouse. they are very close to the same size, the Pyra feels slightly heavier when the batteries are in.

here is a pic of the settings screen

ive seen a place where people actually post reviews here, but ive never done a review, so this is my first attempt, and im sure a poor one at that, but its all i got LOL

overall its pretty sweet mouse. can be used right or left handed. scroll wheel is nice and tight, the sensitivity is exactly what i was looking for.....dpi = 400 800 1600. you can adjust every setting you want. and it has a easy shift function meaning you can make 1 of the side buttons the easy **** and by pressing it, you can actually make each of the other buttons have a second function, so you have doubled your buttons in total. the disk came with a folder with several wallpapers all in lots of sizes, as well as mobile wallpapers and icons.

someone asked if you can move the cursor when the mouse is slightly lifted. the answer is yes.....probably about a 16th of an inch up and it will still move the cursor.......i normally don't lift my mouse (at least i don't notice if i do) but he was wondering.

so there you have it, the Roccat Pyra. from what i can tell its not available in any US stores. its from Germany, and i ordered mine from performance-pcs.com

Use CDs to measure lift distance.

get a scale and find the weight w/ and w/o battery inside. exclude cable.

do this in MS paint w/ pencil:

Mine weighs 100g with some AAA batteries and 76g empty. Weight is slightly on the right side, because the battery compartment is over there.

Guess I could give you some initial impressions after the first few days.

Size: Omg, tiny! It's really short and more narrow than full-sized mice so if you like to palm grip your mouse you probably won't be too happy with this one. I'm using claw grip all the time so it fits pretty damn well. The angled sides offer good grip for lift off's.
As stated earlier it's rather light, weighing roughly 100g with batteries.

Buttons:
The main mouse buttons require very little force to press. I'm still getting adjusted to this so sometimes I accidentally hit mouse2 in the middle of a shootout. It's getting better though so I won't complain here.
The wheel feels solid and offers enough grip, pressing it requires too much force for my taste though.
The shoulder buttons are not really good. They need to be pushed pretty far in, to trigger action and are placed too high. Especially the one on the right side requires some finger-yoga for me to press ingame so it's basically unusable. Time will tell if I get used to that.

Surfaces:
Currently I'm using a Puretrak Talent and the combination just feels like a winner. Overall I'd say silky smooth is the best description here. I've also tried a hard surface such as my Vespula but it feels rough with this mouse. It's probably because the mouse feet are rather tiny too. So far this one has had zero tracking issues which feels kinda like my very personal nirvana after all the hassle with my Mamba.

wireless:
As stated everywhere it has no noticable lag. It's constantly on wireless mode so you need to have the little receiver plugged in all the time. Even if you charge it via USB you need the receiver if you want to use the mouse.
Signal strength is okay for Notebook use. With distances >2m I've had some dropout issues so if you have a whole living room to cross you might run into problems.

Power:
Well it uses standard AAA Ni-mh batteries which you could charge while gaming if you plug the included mini USB cable. From my impressions using the included cable nets you massive drag at the front of the mouse, probably because the cable sits too low. The plug has an additional glide pad at it's bottom but that doesn't really solve the problem. I'd rather use a set of spare batteries and an external charger.
When power runs low, you might get response problems or short dropouts. I haven't paid much attention to the glowing light between the buttons but I think it flashes faster, when the batteries deplete.
After a few minutes of idling it shuts down to save batteries. When that happens you need to hit some button to wake it up again. This might be an issue if you do massive camping tongue.gif

Driver:
Well it does what I need it to do. Haven't tried the EasyShift function yet so I can't comment much on that one. Funny enough the default settings for me were for left-handed people so I was confused at first. smile.gif
You can set the mouse to left and right handed mode so mouse1 and 2 are swapped but you cannot bind any other buttons to those two unless you use EasyShift.

Overall this thingy feels really good and so far every game of quake has been a good one.

I'll save you money and let you know I will never buy from them again. I had a roccat kone (their first product) and it broke within a month, to RMA the thing would have cost $40 since they would not simply send me a new unit so I just bought a g500 since I am not wasting $40 on a mouse that may just break again.

If your not in europe do not bother getting one of these since you are basically getting no warranty with one.

What's the perfect control speed like? On the mouse I used with this sensor it was laughable, hope this one turned out better.
