Roccat Kiro Mouse Testing and Conclusion
I tested the Kiro for a couple of weeks to get used to the feel as it is much smaller than I am used to. I was able to log a solid 4 hour BF4 marathon in and some of Dying Light: The following as well as some normal daily use. During more twitchy play I felt the Kiro had great balance but it feels a bit heavier than I like and yearned for some adjustability. I did quickly get used to the feel and found to my surprise I settled in at the 2400 DPI setting for gaming. This is much lower than I usually play at but the 4000 DPI felt less controlled. Maybe something in-between will rise to the top?
I also settled into a higher palm grip with some occasional wrist drag. I believe some are starting to call this a fingertip grip and it makes sense. This would not be a mouse I would recommend to those with larger hands.
Overall the ROCCAT Kiro Modular Ambidextrous Gaming Mouse is a confident mouse at an amazing price point that should suit both left and right handed gamers without breaking the bank. That’s a pretty bold statement and it speaks to how successful the design of the Kiro really is. As always the design is backed by some of the best quality in the field and ROCCATS top notch customer service.
I look forward to seeing what improvements 3D printing might bring to the world of mouse design and it is exciting to see that support in a lower cost mouse. I know my lefty friends are going to be lining up to try this one out!
