ROCCAT Nyth Gaming Mouse Overview
If you would look quickly the Nyth has a pretty normal design to it, but then you have the massive thumb section on the left side of the mouse. Most of the mouse has a very cool gunmental color, which is made of a sort of soft-feel plastic. This should make for a very comfortable grip on the mouse. On the palm rest of the mouse you’ll find a rather large ROCCAT Nyth logo.
Of course when looking at the mouse your attention goes right to the thumb section on the side of the mouse. Here you will find 12 high quality, tactile mechanical buttons. Having this many buttons on the thumb section of a mouse is not new, but making these buttons modular is! You can fully remove all of the buttons and swap them out for any of the other included buttons. Looking at the mouse from the side we can see just how it is angled.
Moving back to the top of the mouse you have your normal right and light mouse buttons as well as a scroll wheel. There is also a sort of “paddle” button that can be flicked back and forth, ROCCAT calls this a mid-finger switch. Pretty interesting, we will have to see how useful it is. Finally there is a small button right above the scroll wheel, which by default enables ROCCAT’s Easy-Shift[+] function.
On the far side of the mouse there are no buttons or anything like that. The pre-intalled sidegrip favors a more of a claw grip, where as the extra sidegrip favors a palm grip. The extra sidegrip has a rubber section to give you an even better grip. Both grips are magnetic and easily come right off the mouse.
Flipping over to the bottom of the mouse we can see three large mouse feet that are on the mouse itself and one that is on the sidegrip. The second sidegrip actually has a longer one on it. At the center of the mouse you’ll find the 12,000 DPI laser sensor. Finally there is a lock release which releases the twelve side buttons of the mouse for you to swap them out.
