I upgraded to this mouse from a Khone XTD as it was getting old and wearing away, I had it for 5years+ without any issues. I trust ROCCAT® products. This mouse feels superior to that mouse in every aspect. The size of the mouse is perfect for me as I have quite big hands and it's a pretty large mouse. The weight of the mouse really helps when I'm tracking targets in FPS games, such as apex, or warzone etc. The scroll wheel has a really nice feel to it, it's really smooth when you roll it. LMB and RMB are both pretty sensitive, but that's how I like it. The mouse RBG looks great, its really nice and bright, but not too bright where it becomes distracting. The software is nice and easy to use, it's really easy to make macros with this mouse, for what ever you need them for. I love how the mouse feels, so silky smooth... it's a pleasure to hold it. Overall a top quality feeling mouse that works absolutely perfectly. I also bought the ROCCAT® Horde AIMO keyboard, so I could sync the RBG between them and they share the same software. Overall I am super pleased with this mouse and think it was definitely worth the money.
I bought this mouse as it was recomended for large hands and it performed brillianty for the first couple of weeks. Unfortunately, the scroll wheel then started to malfunction jumping in the opposite direction to which I was scrolling. This is a definite dealbreaker as scrolling is quite a major function for a mouse and after doing some research this appears to be a common issue with the mouse. This is a real shame given how much I like it otherwise.
I have unfortunately returned this mouse for a refund, but that doesn't mean I wasn't impressed by it.
The clicks were satisfying and the sensor was incredibly accurate, the mouse glided wonderfully on the mousepad and was generally fantastic.
But I am a claw grip user with small hands, and this meant my fingers only reached half way down the left and right click landing them directly on top of the switch housing, meaning I could feel the switch rebounding every time I clicked.
So if you are like me and you have tiny hands, I'm not sure I can recommend this mouse to you, however, if you have 'normal' sized hands or are a palm grip style user, this mouse could very well be the mouse for you! I would rate it above my Logitech G502.
The Kone Aimo is comfortably broad, and while still too small to allow for a palm grip comfortably (the tips of my fingers end up off the front of the mouse if it's in my palm), but I can at least rest my finger along with the mouse in full which has been a great help.
Software seems good and isn't wasting resources. Build quality feels good. Not sure I like the shift key, it's a little too light on the switch and easy to press, but that's really minor and I'm sure I'll get used to it.
Upgraded from a Logitech G502 after it felt like it was exacerbating RSI issues due to its small size and tall resting height.
This mouse feels great, looks great and works great. I love the layout and pretty much everything about it.
My issue is a MASSIVE one in that I paid around £50 for this mouse only for the mouse to start double-clicking every time I press the mouse button. I expected something like this to happen eventually, but this happened within only 3 months and I can't even get a refund because I didn't pay the extortionate extra £15 for accidental damage insurance.
I'm not in a position to buy a new mouse and my mouse is defective after 3 months despite my paying £50 for it. After reading online, ROCCAT apparently knowingly use cheap switches under the mouse buttons leaving around 50,000 clicks before they start breaking down (for use as a gaming mouse, 50,000 clicks is nothing). My best guess is that they do this in hopes that people will keep buying replacements, or pay extra for damage insurance as a way to make an extra buck.
Otherwise this mouse is great, it's comfortable, usable and has really great features on it that make it great, but I can NOT in good conscience recommend anyone to buy this mouse or it's non-"remastered" predecessor. A shame seeing as one of the selling points for this mouse is 'Enhanced Durability' and yet it lasted less time than the last one.
Do not be tempted by the features of this mouse. Stay away or you'll be in the same position I am in right now with a very defective mouse and having lost a not insignificant amount of money to a corporation who doesn't make their products to last.
If you have big hands you will be limited to the front side button and the bottom side button, the rear side button will altar your aim if you try to press it. But if you have normal or small hands then everything should work as usual. I personally tried several different hand positions to try to be able to use all the side buttons but could not get comfortable. I wish I could refund it to get a better suited mouse to my hand size, but I can not so take this review as a warning if your hands are big.
I have used the same mouse for 5 years, The corsair m65, Until it broke and I came across this mouse. I have given 4/5 for comfort as i have yet to get used to the different size/grip type to my old mouse and my pinky tends to hang off the side. Other than that this mouse is AMAZING, I rate it so much highly than my previous mouse, The sensor is absolutely brilliant, The macros are awesome and the lighting is just wow. I play all game types and this mouse fits every type. Only draw back is what I said previously, But I'm sure a few weeks with the mouse I will get use to it. I definitely would recommend this mouse to anyone.
Great features, great feel in the hand, customization options will suit everyone. But the scroll wheel stopped working after a few weeks, so replaced the mouse with a new one, which is solid, so far...
almost a perfect mouse in every way. Utterly striking, beautifully refined,looks badass without being glaring (its a BMW m5, not a souped up hot hatchback), the software is intuitive and incredibly easy.
