The product


Here it is, the new Roccat Kone [+]. It does look a lot like the old Kone, even though there are both big and small differences, which I will talk about under here. 

Kone[+] has the same number of buttons as the old one has, and they all have the same function, except from the "back-button". The "back-button", or button 5, is the one that now activates EasyShift[+]. This opens for a lot of possibilities when it comes to the function of the buttons. All you have to do, is to press button 5 and another random button to activate EasyShift[+]. This also means, that you can no longer use the "back-button" to go back. This is done by pressing button 5 + 1, that is the left mouse button. If you want to go forward, you will have to press 5 + 2, the right mouse button, or just button 4 (the normal forward-button). This can be confusing to begin with, but it is all about habits - I can confirm that. 

You can still use button 5 to "go back", but it requires some changing in options in the driver. 



Up near button 1, which is the left mouse button, is of course the most common buttons, the left- and right-click buttons. In between is the scroll-wheel and three other buttons. The scroll-wheel is what Roccat call 4D, meaning that it can scroll up, down, left and right. You can also use it as a button by pressing it. Additionally we have button 12, which is the one with the three stripes. As standard, it opens the Start menu in Windows 7, and if you have the included software installed, you can open it by pressing this button and the EasyShift-button. 

The two other buttons, the ones with a - and a + sign, are controlling the dpi. You can chose from five different options, and as standard they are 400, 800, 1600, 3200 and 6000 dpi. Yea, you got it right - 6000 dpi. This is a lot, and it makes it super precise for gaming. In comparison, the old Kone had a max dpi of 3200. When you use the EasyShift[+] function, you use the buttons to change between the five profiles you have configures. These profiles are stored on the mouse itself, so you can plug it into another computer, and still have the same profiles. 



The surface on the mouse is also one of the things where Kone[+] differs from the old one. The old one was more rough, where the new one is smooth as silk. It is not easy to see on the picture, but it feels incredibly nice to the touch. 



Here you can see the big Roccat logo, and one of the modification options the Kone[+] offers; their LED-system. In all its simplicity, it is four LED diodes, where each of them sits in one end of the light-stripe. Every single one of those LEDs  can light up with their own individual color. This makes it possible to make it light exactly the color one would want. The colors are changed in the included software. The light-stripe can also blink with different effects, just like the old one could. 



One the bottom of the mouse, we can see the sensor that registers movement. This is a laser-sensor which can read up to 6000 dpi. There is also the integrated TDCU - Tracking and Distance Control Unit. On the old Kone, there is only TCU. This means that it does not just read the surface-type, but also the distance to it. 

The Teflon-feet have also gotten an upgrade. The mouse has become more noiseless, and drives more smooth and problem-free. Even though I never had a problem with the old Kone, I can feel that there is a big difference. 

Under here, we also find the weight-system. The system has been upgraded from the old one, where you used the lid as weight. On Kone[+] the lid is now really a lid that you can open, and insert the number of weights you want. 



The weights come in a little box, where you can store them.

Even the USB-cable has been modified, and in comparison to the old Kone's cable, this one has got the name of the mouse on it.
