Roccat Tyon Mouse and Siru Surface Review
Roccat mice have regularly found themselves at, or at least very close to, the top of our must buy gaming rodents. A combination of outstanding design, a product range that isn't spread too thinly, and some excellent features and customisation have brought many awards to Roccat, not least of which from our good selves here at OC3D.
Today it's time to check out their latest range-topping model, the Tyon. A mouse that bridges the gap between the plethora of options one could expect to find on a MMO mouse, and the ease of use and ergonomics that gamers demand.
With a seriously beefy sensor and, as you can see from the above picture, an almost bewildering array of switches and levers, let's see what the Tyon brings to the party.
Any mouse, no matter how much customisation is available, lives and dies on the quality of the underlying parts. Unsurprisingly the Tyon adopts the Avago 9800 sensor. At least if we compare specifications then it most closely resembles a 9800 and we'd guess that if Roccat had designed their own then they'd be shouting from the rooftops. A lot of people prefer an Optical over a Laser, but we like both.
