Usage & Final Thoughts
I have been using the Nyth for a couple weeks now and I do really like it. If you are coming from a normal mouse it will take some time to get used to the thumb buttons, that feel and design is a big departure from normal designs. Once you are acclimated to the feel of the mouse it is very comfortable to use and the coating on the top part of the mouse feels great.
Having the 12 buttons on the side of the mouse is just insane! Most mice don’t even have have that! I like that the thumb buttons are modular though, this way you can configure them how you like. This is something I felt was missing from Corsair’s Scimitar Pro. ROCCAT even includes a set of six large buttons (that take up two spots each) and covers for the buttons you don’t plan on using. I actually ended up really liking the six large buttons (12 was just too many for me). Remember you can also 3D print your own buttons! This mouse also has ROCCAT’s Easy-Shift[+], which effectively doubles the number of buttons you have on the mouse!
On top of the modular thumb buttons you also have two different sidegrips to choose from. The smaller one favors a more of a claw grip, whereas the larger one is for more of a palm grip. I think that ROCCAT really has most gaming styles covered with this mouse. I mean even if you disable all of the thumb buttons the mouse would be great for FPS games.
Now this mouse is one of the most expensive available, currently it is selling for $103.93 at our favorite online retailer. But if you need to have two different mice for your different playing styles / games you would spend just about as much. Overall ThinkComputers gives the ROCCAT Nyth Gaming Mouse a 9 out of 10 score.
