Features

ROCCAT Gaming Mouse

Lag-Free Precision
The 3200dpi Pro-Optic R2 Gaming Sensor plays in the Champions' League of optical sensors, offering lag-free precision. We increased maximum speed to 130 inches per second and raised maximum acceleration to 30G. And like the current generation of ROCCAT gaming mice, the polling rate clocks in at an unprecedented 1000Hz.

ROCCAT Driver
The Kova+ now also comes with a feature-rich driver package, allowing precise adjustment of the sensitivity and dpi settings. All seven buttons plus the mouse wheel can be assigned a multitude of functions and custom macros, as well as predefined ROCCAT Presets. The Creating Game Profiles option makes things easier when starting a game, as the Game Profiles function automatically loads settings specific to the particular game during start-up.

Easy-Shift+ Button
The Easy-Shift+ button doesn't just give you access to seven mouse buttons plus the mouse wheel – you also get access to 16 additional functions at the touch of a button. The Easy-Shift+ button is similar to the shift key on a keyboard. If you hold down the Easy-Shift+ button while pressing one of the other standard mouse buttons, you can program a second function (dual-assignment).

Sound Feedback
The Kova+ also features Sound Feedback – a new feature first introduced on the ROCCAT Kone+. The mouse informs you of any changes to the dpi, profile or sensitivity settings by reading them aloud. This means there are no additional displays to distract you from gameplay, so your full attention can remain on screen.

Multicolor Light System
A multicolor LED system allows the mouse to light up in seven different colors – plus the mouse can be further personalized with color rotation and other lighting effects using the driver. You can even assign colors to profiles, so when you switch profiles the color changes, too.

V-Shape for Left or Right-Handed Use
The Kova+ sits nicely in both the left and right hand. Thanks to a slightly raised ridge on the upper casing, you can control the Kova+ with maximum precision. The Griptech side areas extend all the way to the top of the Kova+, letting you hold the mouse securely when lifting it. In addition, the new Soft-Touch Coating offers amazing grip, complementing the non-slip performance of the familiar solid rubber Griptech side areas.

Part of the ROCCAT SDMS Series
As part of the ROCCAT Smart Desktop Management System (SDMS), the Kova+ Max Performance Gaming Mouse fits seamlessly into the angular, stealth-look of the series. SDMS has become a byword for performance-focused gaming with its series of perfectly-coordinated products that offer optimum handling and improved ergonomics.


ROCCAT Gaming Mouse

3200dpi Gaming Sensor
The maximum precision optical sensor effectively reduces pick-up flight. The resolution can be configured at 400, 800, 1600 or 3200dpi at the press of a button.

ROCCAT Gaming Mouse

Easy-Shift+ Button
Thanks to Easy-Shift+, the mouse buttons as well as the mouse wheel can be duplicated and assigned macros & functions – giving a total of 16 functions available at any one time instead of the usual 9.

ROCCAT Gaming Mouse

Multicolor Light System
The driver offers you a palette of seven colors to choose from – cast an atmospheric aura over your desktop if you activate the rotating or breathing effect too.

3 out of 5 eggsLasted 2 years... but some inhibiting problems

Pros: Great DPI control, very nice and raw input

Lasted 2 years before giving out

Nice illumination features, high amounts of customization

7 buttons (not including EASY-SHIFT features)

Cons: Mouse wheel axle broke about 3 months in

Impossible to open mouse without destroying protective padding

Gunk is extremely hard to clean because of this

Mouse wheel became very difficult to scroll without using a special technique after the axle broke

Driver sometimes interfering with windows recognition of the mouse when plugged in

Other Thoughts: I do a lot of 3d modeling and gaming, so I do use the mouse wheel heavily, so that could be why it broke. However, being unable to open the mouse nor clean the gunk out of it was an extreme downside. About an hour ago, after some time of acting up, my mouse began freezing and disconnecting (not physically), then I unplugged it and felt the USB end of the cord was extremely hot (burnt my finger a little bit), and the cord's end that goes into the mouse burnt my hand as well to the touch.

I've had a variety of roccat products, (Roccat KAVE, ISKU, and Kova[+]) however I do not think I will be buying from them again. I'll probably just try Logitech stuff, like the wireless mouse from my laptop that I am using now.

The Roccat KAVE 5.1 surround analouge headset was a gift from a norwegian friend of mine, and lasted me an impressive 4.5 years or so, truly a great headset. It just began to fall apart, and that may have been the result of my cats chewing the cord and me needing to tape things to make the sound work properly. The quality before that was truly amazing however. My Isku got soda spilled on it rather early in its life (about 4 months in) when I had a friend over and he spilled it accidentally. The keyboard still works, but the 1-4 keys do not, escape does not, and the comma and some other punctuation keys were broken as well. However, I was able to take that one apart even though I could ultimately not fix it all the way.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Pleased

Pros: As accurate as you'd like it
Plenty of button options without feeling cluttered
Very attractive design

Cons: Not all of the LED colors work correctly (Orange), this is a known issue

Other Thoughts: I've never been more satisfied with a mouse. It's excellent for gaming and everyday use.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good

Pros: - The lights are pretty
- Good movement, accurate, very fluid
- Love the amount of customizability, the "Shift" feature is grand and really allows for versatility
- Subtle-looking mouse, good for left-handers who share with righties

Cons: - The lights can be a tad annoying at night. Just turn them off or switch to red at night, maybe dark blue. Also the orange is basically just a green.
- A bit of a lie in the advertising, as you can't really customize the "Shift" button on the mouse (But really, why would you want to?)
- The scroll wheel is nice and gives good tactile and auditory feedback, but it's unusually hard to depress compared to a normal mouse. It takes some getting used to, but it's still rather hard.

Other Thoughts: I got this on sale, so it was an absolute steal for its actual value, but even not on sale, I'd still buy it, and recommend it, knowing what I do now.

5 out of 5 eggsNever looked back

Pros: Very comfortable with tons of customisation. As someone who never quite accepted macro keys on keyboards or mouses, the easyshift feature became a godsend, as it felt natural and was very easy to adapt. Fairly decent crowdsourced linux tools for customisation needs.

Cons: Tad expensive, and probably not for someone on a budget. The geometry was a bit rough at first, but I got used to it fairly quickly, and the mouse feels very comfortable now.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat product

Pros: Good shape. Fits comfortably in your hand. The light system is a cool touch. Nice interface to customize the mouse settings and macros. I was a bit concerned i wouldn't like the mouse wheel but pleased to say it is the best i have ever used. Great weight to it, not to light but not to heavy.

Cons: The software was a bit slow. Not a big deal and i hope it will be improved in future updates.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this to anybody. great price for what you get.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: The mouse works great as expected. As a Razer product users switching over to Roccat, I feel they have a different, but still in touch idea of what a gamer needs in their mouse. A mouse is not just for clicking, but an extension of the controls, and the mouse shows this in form and function. Razer is for the ergonomic gamer, and Roccat is for the technical gamer. And I like technical.

Other Pros:
- 7 preset colors to choose from for the illumination. My previous mouse, the Razer Deathadder, only glowed blue, which was nice in conjunction with my keyboard also glowing blue, but Im not a huge blue fan.
- Very customizable with 7 buttons. Ive been wanting side buttons on both sides ever since I got the Razer Orochi for my laptop, but as that mouse is small, I cant use it for long periods of time on my desktop.
- Comfortable to use for extended periods of time. Its long enough to allow me to rest my hand on it without it feeling like a giant trying to balance on a stick.
- Smooth surface on the top improve the comfort over my Deathadder. It feels rather breathable so instances of hand sweat have decreased.

Cons: The reason for only giving 4 eggs is I have a couple of complaints and issues when setting up the mouse.

- The configuration software was difficult to find. The driver installation seemed like a typical install of a driver only, and there was no indication that the software was installed along with it. Not even a desktop icon. I had to dig into the install location to find it after emailing their support. Its not a huge issue, nor a technical one on the mouse itself, but more of a failure on Roccat's part to inform users that the software is even there.
- Further, their website is fairly confusing. The product information page doesn't even link to the drivers download page, which is in a whole other section of the site. There seemed to be a large disconnect between sales and support when they designed their web page.

Other Thoughts: - The side buttons do seem a little stiff making them a little difficult to press some times. This may just be from not being broken in and/or im not completely used to it yet, but I thought I would mention it. Its completely functional otherwise.

2 out of 5 eggsWaste of money

Pros: Nice lights

Cons: I purchased this on 10/30/2012 so I have used it for little over a year. The wheel is suppose to be middle button but in the last few weeks it started screwing up. It just doesnt register when you click. Its a big thing for me to have middle mouse button that is able to click because I use Blender 3D a lot and middle button is used for navigation. Poor quality for something that is only more then a year old to be broken.

2 out of 5 eggsStay AWAY from this mouse

Pros: Nice sexy sleek design, like the cool LED and overall design, looks like it would last ...... the "7 programmable" buttons?

Cons: Where can I start?
First off they LIE this is not a 7 button mouse you can only assign 5.
The mouse wheel button at first was almost impossible to use had to really press down until 1 day it just stoped working completely, I do need these features to work as i'm handicapped and need all the extra programmable buttons to be able to enjoy some gaming but feel like i was taken advantage of by Roccat because of mi condition and False advertising this type of mouse is a niche group that buys them because we NEED them, and mind you I don't play much and guess when it stopped working ....2 weeks after warranty was over.

I pride myself in looking for info, reviews and researching before I buy my stuff and at the time read great reviews and what not but I feel robed and lied to, why advertise lies this is not a "all 7 usable/programmable buttons" mouse!!
I'm not going to blame newegg for this but trust me is the first and last time I give Roccat a chance!!!
Thank you Roccat you have made my past few months a frustrating experience trying to learn new tricks of how to do things on the pc with only 1 hand!!!
should had stayed with my old mouse.

ps. Did all the usual trouble shooting, updated drivers, reinstalled the roccat software and all the other good stuff.

Other Thoughts: Well time to get another one, seems like there is a Storm coming and i need to do some RECON!!

Stay away from this mouse if you check reviews now you will find almost all the negatives conclude this is a cheaply made mouse!

Time to take it apart I guess and see if i can at least make it usable.

4 out of 5 eggsKova +

Pros: Love the sleek design, multi LED color changer, it's of course amazing when you look at just the aesthetics of the mouse itself. Light weight, glides easily. Wheel is sturdy, mod type buttons. I have smaller hands since Im a female and this is perfect for my hand, not so sure about males it might be a little small for them.

Cons: I believe the construction of the mouse itself could be better. I noticed after a few months things were getting stuck in places. I think it's possibly the glue or adhesive they use which is (Ill be honest) disgusting. It attracts all kinds of dirt and debris. One day I was spending a few hours online gaming and I noticed something sticky on my fingers. I turned the mouse on it's side and literally had to dig out the adhesive. Also under the mouse it collects so much debris. First started coming apart on the right side then the adhesive on the left. Sticky pads underneath started coming off and it's like this big ball of nasty! LOL! I have two cats and if you have pets this thing is like a fur magnet.

Other Thoughts: All in all I would have been stoked to have this mouse last a little longer. I love the aesthetics but eventually it breaks down. The "breathing" capability for the multi LED color changer is plain to put it freakin' awesome! I will give it to Roccat for some amazing sleek designs but I think I might try Razer next. Might be double the price but if it keeps my hand out of the "glue" container that's just fine for me :)
