The Roccat Kone [+] certainly looks the part without having the tacky visage of some gaming mice. The glossy black trim and extensive LED lighting are major plus points and excite the appearance without detracting from the functionality of the rubberized paint finish.
In terms of performance, the Kone is up there with the best. It’s 6,000 DPI sensor has a higher resolution than all the major competition from the likes of Razer and SteelSeries. The extensive configuration options sweeten the deal even more and should satisfy the most serious gamers out there.
The one area we haven’t covered yet is the price. At around £68 at Ebuyer, it’s over £10 more expensive than the SteelSeries Xai which we regard to be one of the best gaming mice out there. Even though the Kone[+] can match the Xai in terms of performance we feel it is a little overpriced.
KitGuru Says: Sleek looks, top-notch performance and a premium price to match.
