It feels noticeably larger to me, though side by side it's only slightly bigger. Obviously it's not an ergo shape if you care about that. Liftoff distance is a little higher than the KPM with DCU on very low, but still low enough for me. The buttons are a bit harder to click than the hair triggers on the KPM, but not unreasonably stiff. The extra front buttons feel a little mushy after you get past their click point. One kind of cool thing about the extra buttons is that the shape and position makes it pretty easy to learn to hold down LMB while still being able to click the far-left button with the same finger. I find it harder on the right side (I'm right-handed).

I prefer the KPM scroll wheel for scrolling as it's a bit notchier and the travel seems shorter, but I like the Kova's more for use as a button. The Kova one feels a little cheaper, wiggles slightly, and is noisier.

I don't really notice any difference in sensor performance after updating to the latest Kova firmware, but I haven't done any detailed measurements. With my grip (slightly small hands, claw) the sensor placement is a little further forward with the Kova than with the KPM.

I find the extra front buttons really useful and I like the Kova for that reason. If it didn't have them I'd prefer the KPM as it's a little more comfortable for me. But they are both good enough mice in my opinion.

Anyone using the kova? How do you like the shape?

Got the Kova. Wish I could adjust LOD since it's a bit higher than I'm used to. KPM was perfect for my hybrid grip and Kova feels really nice as well except it's ambi, though I agree it does feel slightly larger.

That doesn't sound right. Even the much older Kone can adjust LOD once you calibrate it to your surface.

Yea sadly there doesn't seem to be a surface calibration in the Roccat Swarm for this mouse.

Does 3320 offer surface calibration? I might be wrong, but I don't think so.

the sensor doesn't but the mcu can kind of do the same thing by reading squal values and then setting a corresponding threshold in the sensor

The "Kiro" is on sale on german Amazon tomorrow. Thinking about buying one because of the ambi shape.

Anyone got a review on that thing?

It's pretty good overall, but too heavy. You may find it usable, though.
