Roccat Kone AIMO Gaming Mouse with Roccat Kanga & Taito XXL

Rating: 8.5.

In 2007 the original Roccat Kone mouse was released as Roccats's first ever product. 10 years later we take a look at the Roccat Kone AIMO which features the AIMO intelligent lighting system, 12000dpi owl-eye optical sensor and tri-button thumb zone. The Roccat Kone is available in 3 different colours – black, grey and white – but is it worth the £69.99 asking price?

Kitguru says: The Roccat Kanga & Taito XXL mousemats both performed well but the Roccat Kone AIMO is the star of the show. We think it is a beautiful mouse with excellent performance. The large size and weight won't be for everyone but we think it is well worth the investment.
