ROCCAT Kone XP Air Review

Aug 18, 2022

The ROCCAT Kone XP Air is expensive, and the price tag will be enough to dissuade even the most devoted to stick with what they have or avoid entirely. That said, it’s one of ROCCAT’s best pieces of hardware that’s extremely versatile and retains that ultra-lightweight frame that it’s well known for. It’s a wireless mouse that lives up to its battery life claims, and works as wired mouse in the most dire of circumstances. It’s been five months since I got my hands on the Kone XP, and the Kone XP Air just elevates the mouse game to new heights. ROCCAT’s Kone XP Air is a premium mouse with premium quality for a premium price, and worth every penny.

Making any piece of hardware that matches or even exceeds its predecessor is no easy feat, but that’s ROCCAT’s strength. Their latest is the ROCCAT Kone XP, an excellent mouse for the gamer who plays everything from shooters to RTS’, and everything in-between to keep you competitive at every angle. The Kone XP is a direct follow-up to the Kone AIMO Remastered that released three years ago. I can say definitively that it has been worth the wait for a gaming mouse this good at what it offers. The ROCCAT Kone XP surpasses, just about everything to be one of the finest mice I’ve ever used.

Corsair DARK CORE RGB PRO Review

Apr 30, 2020

Corsair’s DARK CORE RGB PRO Wireless Gaming Mouse is the closest thing to being actual magic. It’s wireless, it’s got more RGB zones than I can count, it’s virtually lag-free, and it has amazing battery life. You usually get one or two things from that kind of list, but not all of them. So there must be some kind of sorcery going on for Corsair to have it in one device. The DARK CORE RGB PRO is an absolute delight that is the best of what Corsair has to offer today.
