Hopefully we don't have to pay for shipping from EU to NA - some roccat products don't seem so readily available to U.S from what I'm searching - and I don't think I've ever seen a roccat product in retail here

I'm more than interested to try it because dimensions appear similar to rival 300, it weighs less than it, and it's got the 336x - The KP17 looks solid but the dimensions would leave my fingers literally hanging I assume and be extremely uncomfortable for claw. Leadr looks like an interesting shape but too many features not intended for me

The United States are one of our main countries so yes it should be available at the 15th or a few days later. Amazon or Newegg is your best bet!
Also we are working on a ROCCAT shop that ships to the US.

The reason for Kone not getting as much comments as the Kone Pure is that the Kone was never widely available with a good optical sensor. This is the first time.

He is our PR Manager. So take his word for granted biggrin.gif

Logitech had the G500 in 2008 and G9X in 2009, but aside from Razer mice (which one of the founders went on to found Roccat) and maybe a couple others, most mice didn't come with onboard memory till later on...

Again, just what I recall.

Our founder was the VP of Razer Europe. Not a founder of a Razer directly smile.gif

By the time the Kone came out multiple ODM's already had offerings like that.

Okay thanks for the info. I stand corrected.

Not sure if this has been mentioned but have the dimensions been released for these mice? Not sure what the difference in size is between xtd, emp and kone 2017. Thanks in advance

They updated the product pages with dimensions.

Kone Pure 2017 seems to have slightly different dimensions than the Kone Pure, so I guess the shell isn't exactly the same. Although that might be just a difference in how they were measured?

The difference is due to the measurement method. It's exactly the same shell.

Again, just what I recall.

That is because 32 bit Arm ICs were uncommon and expansive before ~2009.
Before it was more common to have 8 bit MCUs and EEPROM instead of 32bit arm MCU and Flash...
