Product Overview Raw performance in a sleek design built for pure power and speed? That's the all new Kova, forged using the legacy of its fan favourite Kova[+] predecessor as its blueprint. It's got double the button functions on a streamlined frame with fine lines and angles reminiscent of a high-end sports car. Double-powered DPI for precision gaming, finished off with a world-class illumination suite integrated into an ambidextrous-use, expertly engineered package. The new Kova is double the ROCCAT power in the palm of your hand. Features Streamlined Shape
The Kova was forged using the legacy of its predecessor as its blueprint. A strong emphasis on performance above all else has resulted in a raw design that is stripped-back yet sleek. Ambidextrous, the Kova suits left-and-right-handers alike with its high-octane build. Its reflexive button layout provides a mighty arsenal of command power for hard-core gamers who take a serious approach to gaming – for truly unstoppable results.

Smart Cast/Easy-Shift[+]
Smart Cast is the intuitive button layout that doubles up on your standard mouse 1 and mouse 2 functions. Optimally placed within finger-tip reach, it adds a new level of reflexive control for fast-paced games. Coupled with Easy-Shift[+], you've got some powerful combos and button assignments at your disposal. Easy-Shift[+] doubles the Kova's total button functions from eleven to an impressive 22, ensuring you won't be left wanting.

Behind The Scenes
Overdrive mode is what you get when you double up on an already eye-wateringly accurate mouse sensor. The Kova's pioneering overdrive mode smashes gaming standards by offering a stable dpi double-up of the remarkably precise 3500 native dpi Pro-Optic R6 sensor. This results in an effective dpi of 7000, with maximum stability provided by the Kova's advanced and powerful Turbo Core V2 32-bit ARM-based MCU.

Light Up Your Kova
The Kova's vivid RGB lighting illumination system lets you fully customize the look of your mouse. Create your own unique style by configuring the colour of your scroll wheel and mouse rim independently of each other. An arsenal of advanced lighting effects to choose from and your choice of 16.8 million colours means you can tailor the look of your Kova in a way that's totally exclusive to you.

It's the next-gen system that keeps on top all games, apps and ROCCAT products in one place.

What’s the most important part of your PC system? Its processor? The mainboard? Maybe the power supply? You’d only have a case if you thought it’s the PSU. That cornerstone of a PC system is the most important part of the PC system as concerns what’s in the chassis, which might surprise you, but it’s definitely the devices you use to interact with a PC which are absolutely top dog.

ROCCAT Kova Pure Performance, RGB (16.8M Colours), 3500/7000dpi, Wired, 12 Buttons Programmable, 1000Hz, 1ms, Black is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good mouse but a bit uncomfortable It's a good looking mouse with a good sensor. Easy-Shift, the hallmark of ROCCAT is still as useful as before. The 2 extra buttons next to button 1 and 2 which they call the "smart cast" are very useful though I don't play competitive games at all. You can use them to scroll the page, toggle DPI or jump to the previous/next track. Now on to the bads. This mouse is quite big and is very flatly-shaped so it's made for claw or fingertip grips users with big hands. Yet I think the shape is a bit weird since I can't find the optimal grip on it. I tried palm, claw or fingertip grip but nothing feels comfortable probably because this is an ambidextrous mouse and I am a palm grip user with small hands. Also I don't like the texture of the finish since it made me sweat a lot, and it's quite a fingerprint magnet compared with other gaming mice I've used. There are lots of complaints about ROCCAT Swarm driver being buggy but ROCCAT probably ironed them out before I bought the mouse. I have been using it for 3 months but I haven't encountered any driver issues yet.
