What customers say about "Key Specs"
ROCCAT Kone AIMO Gaming Mouse
  • The sensor is amazing for gaming (similar to any Pixart 3360).
  • As the specs show, this is a top optical sensor and thus far, there are no issues and I do not expect any.
  • However, because this is not a laser sensor like the Nyth was, I do not expect any performance issues in the short or long-term.
  • The Owl Eye sensor is one of the best - if not the best - gaming sensor that you can experience.
  • The sensor is top of the line optical and I have had no issues with stuttering, spinning out, or any other defects.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
ROCCAT Kone AIMO Gaming Mouse
  • Even with its large size and heavier weight it is a very comfortable shape and the mouse feet are the best from Roccat yet.
  • I have medium to large hands. The size is perfect.
  • Feels great for my larger hands. I like this size.
  • I have medium sized hands (male) with a claw grip style. The mouse is just slightly on the large side for me.
  • However, this is the first mouse that I gave up to use due to the weight and the size.
ROCCAT Kone EMP Max Performance RGB Gaming Mouse
  • Its a good size for filling my hand.
  • I grip it between thumb at little finger (on either side in the grooves) and rest my hand on it. Good size.
  • Previously owned a Roccat Kone XTD. This is exactly the same size and a perfect replacement.
  • It is of a moderate size and comfortable in the hand.
