The software

Much of the new software is just like the old one. Therefore we have chosen to focus mostly on the new functions. 

The first thing you meet, is a page called "Main Control". From here you can control things like the sensitivity, the scroll speed and choose dpi-profile. It is done the same way as with the old Kone. The big difference here is, that you can choose how many dpi each profile has to read. This means that you make five different profiles, with five different settings depending on how you want them to be. On the old Kone, you could only chose between 800, 1200, 1600, 2000, 2400 and 3200 dpi. On the new, the settings are, as default, set to 400, 800, 1600, 3200 and 6000 dpi; this is more evenly distributed, and if you do not agree with the default settings, you now have the possibility to change them.

The next page is "Button Assignment". This is a new page, as it does not exist at the old Kone's software. It is here you set the options of the buttons, both under normal use, and when you are using the EasyShift[+]. All buttons, except for left- and right-click can be configured to exactly what one would want, you can even make macros for each button. In EasyShift[+] every button can be configured, but it does not give much sense to give the EasyShift[+] button a function, as it is already used to activate EasyShift[+].

The last page we will take a look at, is "Advanced Control". From here you can control some very interesting things. For example the new TDCU - Tracking and Distance Control Unit. You can turn it on and off as you want. It is also possible to control the TDU and the DCU. The TDU can be calibrated as with the old Kone.

As a new and exciting feature, Roccat have made sound effects for their mouse. This means, when you for example goes to another dpi-profile, a speaker can give a message that says "DPI up". This was with driver version 1.26. We have also tried a newer driver, version 1.29, and here the speaker says "3200 dpi"; a voice that tells you how many dpi the profile you have chosen has. It may sound strange, but it is actually very practical, so you always know how many dpi you are using, without removing your eyes from whatever you are doing. The function also works when changing the volume: "Volume up/down", when changing profile: "Profile 1/2/3/4/5/" and when changing the sensitivity: "Sense up/down".

The page "Color Control" is where you can choose the colors of the LEDs on the sides of the mouse. It is very like the old Kone's, but has been updated in a form of optimizing. This optimization is a fusion of some of the options. This means that you have not lost any options, it is just more simple to adjust. 

 

 

Daily use

A mouse-review would not give much sense, if it did not contain a test of the daily use, which is why I have used the mouse for three weeks. It has been used to everything from Windows, Internet, Photoshop and for gaming. I also used different drivers.

 

In Windows you will not notice a big difference, just until you open your favorite media player. For now, only Windows Media Player, iTunes, VLC Media Player and Winamp are supported. Personally I always use Winamp. In Winamp the mouse is helping me change tracks, pause/play, stop and it can even open the program.

 

While using the Internet, you will not notice any big differences either, but you can make macros to make it more functional, and this is not just when gaming. The macros can also be used in Photoshop or Word, and personally I have used them a lot in Photoshop.

 

Because this is a gaming mouse, it has also been tested in games. Here, the mouse is really in its real element with the new EasyShift[+]. Suddenly you have a lot of functions in your right hand, where you had to move your left hand to the keyboard to use the same function before. It is also super precise, and really comfortable to use for hours at a time.
