ROCCAT Leadr Review

👤by Matthew Hodgson Comments 📅03-07-17
The ROCCAT Leadr is a large mouse, suitable for the bigger hand, but with that size comes a whole host of incredibly well-positioned buttons. The X-celerator paddle, along with the Easy-Shift[+] are both exactly where they need to be. The RGB lighting is a lot more subtle than offerings from other manufacturers but still more than bright enough to show off that ROCCAT logo; unfortunately the lighting effects do need some tweaking to score full marks.

Functionality is excellent, the Owl-Eye sensor works flawlessly in any scenario, the 20-hour battery life is more than enough for any gaming session, however, if you do find yourself in a gaming session of mammoth proportions, there is also the ability to connect the mouse via the included Micro-USB. The ROCCAT Swarm software is excellent and suits the Leadr to the T.

The price, at 130 / $140, might be a little eye-watering to some, but for a no-compromise wireless gaming mouse, this seems reasonable and is along similar lines with offerings from Razer and Logitech.

The ROCCAT Leadr, with the Owl-Eye sensor and whole host of buttons genuinely does offer wired performance without the hindrance of the wire.
