Roccat Kone Pure Review
As always the Roccat packaging is a blend of features and the product itself, all in easy to read sections. The front of the box is starting to get a little busier than we like, but a magnetic flap reveals the mouse itself to curious shoppers.
The full-size Kone versions are nicely proportioned, but the reduction in size of the Roccat Pure makes it even prettier. It borders on squat. The red top is much more vibrant than it seems in pictures, and yet it isn't retina burningly bright at the same time. Behind the scroll wheel are the DPI change buttons, which, like everything else on the Kone Pure, can be customised to your own preference.
As a right handed rodent the Pure has a sizeable groove for your thumb on the left hand side. It's not the extreme banana shape we've seen from some, but rather it's just enough to be comfortable. The whole mouse is covered in the soft-touch plastic that we adore so much. It makes a nice change when compared to some mice that have multiple textures.
The heart of the Kone Pure is that Pro Aim R3 sensor, positioned centrally and surrounded by low-friction feet. As always with Roccat products the cable is coated with a soft, tightly-woven braid and the USB plug itself has the product printed upon it. It might seem a small thing, but anyone who has had to change their installed USBs and has found themselves confronted with 8 identical black USB plugs will appreciate knowing which is which.
