Roccat Kone XTD Gaming Mouse Review
Published: 10th November 2012 | Source: Roccat | Price: |
The aesthetic differences between the XTD and the regular Kone are slight. The size is the same chunky 'fill your hand up' type we loved from the original. At a glance the only change is the the Roccat logo is now an outline rather than a solid design.
The XTD is a right handed mouse, with the buttons solely on the left hand side. By default the front button is defined as 'forward' and the back button is the EasyShift[+] button which modifies all the other buttons. Although the right hand side is free from buttons it still has a noticeable concave element to it.
On the underside we have the same weight modification system that proved so useful on the original Kone. With four spots you can adjust the weight of the XTD by up to 20g in 5g increments.
The front end is, rightfully, where the majority of the action is. From the top to the bottom we have DPI adjustment down, up, a four-way scrollwheel, and the Windows key. Of course they can be adjusted to perform any function you desire, as you would expect from a product labelled as "Max Customisation".
