ROCCAT are a gaming brand with a lot of style, innovation and maturity. For a company that has been established for only 5 years they have had tremendous success with just a handful of products. I'm not lying when I say that I admire the ROCCAT brand, especially its philosophy.
Today I have something quite exciting to take a look at. Back in the summer of 2007 ROCCAT announced the arrival of their first gaming mouse, the Kone. Since it's appearance it has caught the attention of many, winning multiple-awards and being an overwhelming success. ROCCAT have carefully gone away and devised plans on how they can improve on such a successful product. Let's face it, that can't be an easy thing to do. But today we have the out workings of those audacious plans in the all new Kone[+].
| With a 6000dpi Pro-Aim Laser Sensor and its integrated Tracking & Distance Control Unit (TDCU), the further development of the prize-winning ROCCAT Kone Gaming Mouse has unbelievably more power under the hood. Its maximum precision and ultimate tracking are beyond comparison.|
The massive upgrade made to the driver and the introduction of the EasyShift[+] button has also turned the Kone[+] into a real customizable marvel at the same time. No other mouse offers as many configuration options as the ROCCAT Kone[+].
