Roccat Tyon Mouse and Raivo Mousepad review

Overall, the Rocatt Tyon is a great choice for gaming and the Raivo mouse mat makes a good companion for it. I found the ergonomic shape more comfortable to use compared to ambidextrous mice and I encountered no re-adjustment period, it was as if this mouse was molded to fit my hand.

The Tyon is primarily made of plastic but it doesn’t feel cheap by any means. I didn’t experience any creaking when gripping the mouse even after a few weeks of daily use.

As far as the software goes, its pretty standard. Saving and editing macros as well as re-programming buttons was an easy task. While I found the lighting suite to be impressive, applying new colors was a chore as it would lock up the software for almost two minutes. Some performance tweaks for this wouldn’t go amiss.

For competitive gamers, the Tyon offers plenty of buttons and options, although this mouse is very light and doesn’t come with any weight adjustments- so if you like a heavier mouse then there will be better options available elsewhere.

The Tyon is a premium gaming mouse but that comes at a price – you can purchase the Roccat Tyon from Overclockers UK for £89.99. Additionally, eBuyer also has some in stock for £84.99. It’s certainly priced at the higher end of the spectrum for a wired mouse and will face stiff competition from the likes of SteelSeries and Razer, which both offer similarly priced solutions.

You can also pick up the Raivo mouse mat from Amazon for £18.95.

Pros:

  • Lightweight.
  • Fantastic lighting.
  • Easy to reach buttons.
  • High resolution sensor.

Cons:

  • Fairly expensive.
  • Software performance could be improved.

KitGuru Says: If you are looking for a high performance ergonomic gaming mouse then you can’t go wrong with the Roccat Tyon. Additionally, if you are looking for a granular mouse mat, then the Raivo is certainly worth a look. Both are expensive but to many, will be worth the cost.
