Roccat Kone Pure Military - Page 128

How about looking for the Kone Pure Optical Black? The special edition Black version of the Optical has the same sensor as the KPM and receives firmware updates at the same times. Just make sure it advertises 5000dpi exactly.

Anyone know how to fix the software? Nothing saves. I tried adding exclusion to Defender, but still slow and nothing saves.

Edit: Running it as admin fixes it.

Really nice mouse for the price, here are some thoughts:

+ Scroll wheel is extremely sturdy and the scrolls have a crisp feeling.
+ Sensor is as good as my FK1
+ Super low LOD settings, feels lower than my FK1 on the lowest setting (may be due to hyperglides on FK1)
+ Clicks feel crisp, rapdid spam no problems
+ Easy-Shift button assignment is really nice
+ I read this had rubber coatings on the sides, but mine feels like the same material as the top surface
+ Great coating, feels better than the G303!
+ Great software once you get it working
+ Good total weight
+ Click latency feels more responsive than the FK1

- Shape isn't the greatest, but it's more than adequate, a lot better than the G303
- Wish it had a little less height (use to fk1)
- Lacks good weight distribution, way too heavy towards the butt
- Side buttons feel good, but I don't like their placement above the carved ridge
- Cat logo is ugly, reminds me of thundercats cartoon logo

Only works if you live in or around Germany and no where else.

Are the feet on the KPM supposed to be faster or smoother than most mice? I only bought this one because most reviewers praised this, and I was curious about the shape, but the feet feel really bad, scratchy and loud, almost as bad as the fake material steelseries uses on their mice. But when I opened the box and checked the bottom under light I saw the feet had some unusual stains, maybe its manufacturing defect together with the scratchy annoying braided cable.
Also the mouse has some slight sensor/lens rattle, not sure if these 2 reasons are enough for an RMA. (I bought the Desert Strike edition)

the skates are just very bad, buy some teflon mouse tape. (you might've gotten a refurb packaged as new, though, lots of shady merchants have been doing that for hardware these years)

the sensor lense thing is a defect that shows up in almost every single KPM, just ignore it if you use a low sens and no accel or try to shim it if you have a high sens or use accel

I went back to my FK1, lol. It's a great mouse, but I can't get use to the shape.

Just got the Desert Strike in from Amazon this past Tue for 34.99, but the price as of now is 47.99. I have 19 cm hands and use fingertip grip for gaming. The build quality and the buttons all feel above avg and the mouse is a nice weight for my playstyle. I am also a victim of the sensor rattle issue that seems common with these mice, but mine is not very noticeable and I can't hear it rattle during gaming. Comparing the 3310 in this mouse to the 3988 in my Corsair Sabre I have to say that I prefer the tracking of the 3310.

Quite a lot shorter, not quite as tall and the buttons have a steeper slope from M1 to M2 with them also sitting higher than the Rival. Note that the right side of the Kone is very oddly shaped compared to the Rival.

Thanks a lot +rep. How is the thumb rest compared to rival 300? And just overall grip.

Again, the perfect mouse for me is a smaller version of rival 300. G400 and ec2-a. Is it any close to fit that description or does it just feel different?
