Product Description

Product Description

Armed with the latest and proven ROCCAT technological innovations, the successor to the ROCCAT Kova is equipped to the teeth. The Kova[+] now unites powerful technology with intelligent software and an advanced V-shaped design for left or right-handed use.

The 3200dpi Pro-Optic R2 Gaming Sensor plays in the champions' league of optical sensors, offering lag-free precision. Maximum speed has been increased to 130 inches per second, with maximum acceleration also being raised to 30G. And just like the current generation of all other ROCCAT gaming mice, the polling rate is an unprecedented 1000Hz.

The Kova[+] now also comes with a feature-rich driver package, allowing precise adjustment of the sensitivity and DPI settings. All seven buttons plus the mouse wheel can be assigned a multitude of functions and custom macros as well as predefined ROCCAT Presets. Creating Game Profiles makes things easier when starting a game as the Game Profiles automatically load settings that are specific to the particular game when the game starts.

The EasyShift[+] button doesn't just give you access to seven mouse buttons plus the mouse wheel – you get direct access to 16 functions at the touch of a button. In terms of the way it works, the EasyShift[+] button is very similar to the Shift key on a keyboard. If you hold down the EasyShift[+] button and press one of the other standard mouse buttons at the same time, you execute a second function (=dual-assignment).

The Kova[+] also features Sound Feedback – a new feature first introduced on the ROCCAT Kone[+]. The mouse informs you of any changes to the dpi, profile or sensitivity settings by reading them out aloud. The advantage of this is that there are no additional displays to distract you from the gameplay so your full attention remains on the screen.

A multicolor LED system allows the mouse to light up in seven different colors – plus the mouse can be further personalized with color rotation and other light effects using the driver. You can even assign colors to profiles, so when you switch profiles, the color changes too.

The Kova[+] sits just as nicely in the left or right hand. Thanks to the incorporation of a slightly raised ridge on the upper casing, the Kova[+] can be controlled with maximum precision. The Griptech side areas which extend all the way to the top of the Kova[+] allow the mouse to be held securely when lifting it. In addition, the new Soft-Touch Coating offers amazing grip, complementing the non-slip performance of the familiar solid rubber Griptech side areas.

As part of the ROCCAT Smart Desktop Management System (SDMS), the Kova[+] Max Performance Gaming Mouse slots seamlessly into the series of products which are characterized by their angular stealth-look. SDMS is a byword for performance-focused gaming with its series of perfectly coordinated products that offer optimum handling and improved ergonomics.

Technical Specification:
- 3200dpi optical gaming sensor
- 130 inches per second maximum speed
- 30Gs of acceleration
- 1000Hz polling rate

    I've had this mouse just a few days, so long-term reliability is an unknown. It may seem harsh giving only 3 stars to a device that hasn't really done anything wrong yet, but if you're spending £40 on a mouse I think you have every right to be demanding, and the Kova+ is a bit of mixed bag.

    To reiterate the points that others have made-

    * This mouse is quite small, in particular being very slim left-to-right and extremely light. If you have average size hands, for a man, you are definitely going to need to use a fingertip control "claw grip", this is not a big mouse to slide your whole hand+arm around on.

    * Yes it's very pretty. With the matt black finish and angular lines it looks very sexy (to the extent a mouse can look "sexy"). With the correct dark blue illumination selected to match my new keyboard in the half-dark it looks great.

    Having said that, I suspect most users over about 12 years old will find the more OTT visual effects like "pulsing" or colour-changing lights to be just a little silly and turn them off in the driver after 5 minutes of experimenting.

    * The side buttons are pretty stiff (hard to click). Unless the two smallest fingers on your hand are as strong and mobile as a monkey's arm you should really consider this an "ambidextrous 5 button" mouse not a "7 button" mouse.

    Also the "button shift" feature can only be assigned to either of the the rearmost side buttons, so if you want to use that it costs you another one of your 5 usable buttons.

    * Having said that I use the mouse in my left hand so i'm really keen to see manufacturers continue to support us "lefties".

    This mouse lasted around two years before the side panels started leaking glue and falling apart. The same thing happened to friend who owned the same mouse!

    This is very disappointing as it is a very good mouse with lots of features, however I won't be buying another Roccat mouse again.
    Avoid.

    I've had my trusty Logitech G5 for about 4 years now and I felt it was time for a change. After hours of research I finally ended up choosing the Kova[+] despite it being £10 above my budget.

    For me it was the combination of two factors that made me overcome my budget. Firstly, it's the most beautiful mouse I've seen! Secondly, I really liked the idea of the EasyShift feature (the thumb button acts as a shift for the other mouse buttons) which is very customisable. However, at least to my knowledge, EasyShift cannot be used in conjunction with a keyboard, which is a shame considering the massive amount of potential new keybindings.

    When my Kova came in the post and I unpacked it, the first thing I noticed was how it was smaller than I expected. Maybe I'm just used to the tall and somewhat bulky G5 or my hands are quite large, but I still felt it was a bit dainty. Although I'm now used to its size, my thumb and pinky are touching my table most of the time, especially the latter which feels like it doesn't have enough space to rest on the actual mouse. Again, I won't criticise the mouse too much for this as I do have relatively big hands.

    The driver for the mouse (which is also on a disc included with the product) was quick and easy to install. I was positively surprised by the software which displays very clearly what options there are. Creating profiles is effortless and you can make a profile switch on when an .exe file of your choice is booted. So now I don't have to manually choose profiles when I want to play, say, Battlefield 3.

    The software is not perfect, though. Getting your mouse sensivity just right can be a bit tough, as the sliders are from 1-10 and you can only choose 10 options, so no 3.433 etc to get your sensivity just right.

    Best mouse ever? Whatever. That's probably what you're thinking, and you'd be right to. But please, let me explain. I'm a left handed gamer and this mouse works for lefties and right-handed people too. Not only that, but it's by far the most comfortable mouse I've ever used. It moves along any surface with such a gentle glide, it's like comparing an expensive shaver to shave rather to a cheap plastic razer. (no pun intended razer-mouse fans!)

    The fact you can change lighting (breathing) sequences and DPI and even configure custom buttons just makes this mouse so much more appealing. Mine has just gone faulty after 3 years of heavy usage. As soon as I get some spare cash I'll be buying another. I hope my next one lasts more than 3 years because this really is a great mouse for everyone.

    Absolutely, the worst mouse I ever had. The first one I had failed in 2 months and the replacement is leaking oil in sides since a month ago.

    I neve EVER will buy another Roccat Mouse

    This mouse has good features but for £20 pound it is horrible the feel of the mouse is not good. when i am playing Counter Strike Global offensive and my mouse lags across the screen. if you have large hands as me and you're a claw gamer like me it is really uncomfortable so i recommend getting a razer deathadder i have one and it is more amazing but if you're left handed make sure you get the left handed model. but if you only have a certain amount of money get a different mouse. not good for fps gaming.
