Mabay you should mention some con's.

*sidegrips wear out fast, wich isnt a con I think I like it better smoother, but it will only wear out where youre thumb and fingers are resting.
So mouse will look used quickly.


*shape is nice for mid sized hands but rather large or rather small hands should try it first.

I haven't owned it long enough for the side grips to wear out. Glad you chimed in and pointed that out. smile.gif As for the mid-size, I thought I did make that clear the mouse size must work or no matter how good the sensor is, which it is really good, it won't matter if handling the mouse is difficult.

Updated software section to include an example Roccat Talk.

Thank you for the pic. That makes me sad to see and looks like it may feel annoying being in between the grip and smooth.

There wouldn't be a rough transition as the wear is gradual and spreads over the places where you usually grip...

Nice review, I love this mouse and agree with your observations of different aspects of the mouse thumb.gif

OP thanks for bringing this mouse to more peoples attention. IMHO, its one of a kind.

I used this mouse over the weekend and its now officially my holy grail. So good that the next time they go on sale for $40 I'm stocking up on a few. biggrin.gif

I have smallish hands and switch up between a claw/finger tip grip. The hunt for a mouse that fit my hand size, grip style and had good tracking in FPS has been extensive and also expensive.

The only negative I have for this mouse is no dedicated dpi buttons. For $60ish (average price I found) in the U.S. I expect dedicated dpi buttons. However the Easy Shift+ is a decent enough alternative.

Thats it, no other complaints at this point. thumb.gif

just a quick correction (so as not to confuse users)

The sound feedback isnt Roccat Talk. Roccat Talk is a feature that lets you use the mouse and one of their keyboards with the talk feature (like the iksu) in combination. Instead of easy shift and easy aim being assigned to the mouse, you press a button on the keyboard instead of the mouse to get the same features. So for instance, if I want easy aim (essentially a sniper button), but dont want to take up a mouse button, I can hit, say, shift on the keyboard while playing a game, and itll cut the DPI of the mouse.
Really cool feature and the main reason I want to buy a roccat board to use with my Kone XTD.

I was just clarifying so people dont misunderstand the talk feature

Thank you for that clarification and explanation. thumb.gif

Since the mouse was part of the combination that makes the 'Roccat Talk' feature, which is quite interesting btw, I used that rather than describe it as just ' sound feedback ' which is all it really is. smile.gif Now they know the full feature combined with Kone XTD..

How do these compare to the G9X? Someone mentioned this mouse on my thread and it's looks great but the G9X has quite a few people backing it up.

g9x is a laser mouse, so if you find acceleration annoying (and I personally do not), then it will bother you. The savu is optical, and from what I gather, optical mice have no acceleration...
