ROCCAT TYON Review

Software & Performance
As stated previously, the visual qualities of the TYON share resemblance to a tank, as of such, the shape and curvature of the TYON feels both functional and pleasing to use. Every button that the TYON features as well as their location on its body, delivers a truly remarkable feeling steering an actual vehicle. And while that sounds quite absurd and understandably so, it's not until you're actually using the mouse the way it's intended, do you actually grasp the concept for the TYON's use-case.

Games such as Battlefield 4 for example, remapping the game's vehicle keybindings from the keyboard to the mouse, is where the TYON is clearly at it's best. As of such, the software application is highly recommended. Named the TYON Driver, there's a strong sense of irony going on between the mouse bearing similarity to that of a tank and the user being the driver, as well as the required software drivers that the TYON is reliant upon. If the military theme wasn't strong enough, switching between the DPI settings results in the TYON responding vocally. Intimidating? Hardcore? Let's just say we're thankful there's no Camo-skinned UI.

Hardware features consisting of the TYON include 14 programmable buttons, an 8200 DPI laser sensor, a 32-BIT processor with 576KB of memory, and a dedicated shift button which allows on-the-fly change for macro profiles. Serving as it's most prominent feature, the dedicated shift button holds its primary feature within the types of games the mouse is designed for.
