When I got my hands on this mouse, I was thrilled to be doing the review. The German company ROCCAT is one of the top of the line gaming peripherals companies around today, very well known in Europe. Their USA launch started in 2012 and has been making a big impact with gamers. They started out with the Kone, then came the Kone[+], and now the Kone XTD, their flagship mouse. This mouse is powered by an 8200 DPI Pro Aim R3 laser sensor, a commanding 32-bit Turbo Core V2 72MHz ARM MCU processor, and the most advanced Tracking & Distance Control Unit around – all working in clockwork unison to deliver world-beating battle ability.

Roccat is very well known for great packaging, and making sure you get what you pay for. The box alone has a sleek design, detailed features that also come in multiple languages, and you can also get a sense of how big the mouse will be for your hand. When you see this mouse on the shelf, you can easily spot it, pick it up, and honestly tell if the mouse was for you or not.
Inside the box, you’ll find the installation guide, the Kone XTD, and a small weight case which holds 4x5g weights.
