    That software looks great. very stylish looking. logitech need to improve theirs.

  • Tim

    The price is certainly good, ill say that. has stiff competition on the market right now however.

  • Jerry

    I like their mice, I used one in an event over here recently and was surprised how good the ‘feel’ was. These guys deserve to do well. hopefully we see more reviews over here of their products.

  • Frank

    Henry, could you let me know what you think of the build quality overall, compared to say a logitech mouse? is it comparible or weaker?

  • Stefan

    left handers might like that, looks like a mirror design, or close.

  • Colin McConnigle

    I am really tempted with this, the price is much lower than say a steelseries, if the quality is as good as you say.

  • Roger

    I have one of their older products and its still in good shape, I would say these are built just as good as logitech. I will never forget my G7 falling apart. even the cord frayed. Never again. ill stick to steelseries and these guys.

  • Brooke

    Never heard of them before, but I found their website,. cant believe id never heard of them.

  • Jordan

    I haven’t heard of Roccat until few months ago (maybe already an year?) when I read a review about their 5.1 headset (Kave)…

    I was so interested so I bought the Kave and … damn, what a nice headset! so now I’m waiting for my keyboard/mouse to die so I can check theirs… 😀
