So my G400 is a good mouse but my problem with it is that the ergonomic shape of it doesn't agree with my hand. They are too extreme and well-defined for my slightly large hands which just end up ignoring them and resting uncomfortably. Basically, the groves don't line up with my hand.
So I guess I need a slightly larger mouse. Palm grip, but not too intense of one. I don't hold the mouse tight to the point where my hand starts sweating like crazy. It's just a casual grip.
I was looking at the Roccat Kone XTD Optical. Saw a post elsewhere that said the XTD was good for large hands, so I figured the XTD Optical will be good once it starts popping up in stores. From what I see so far: +supposedly big +lighter than my G400 +German +subtle ergonomic shape +optical +cool design of wolf-thing -expensive -not widely available yet
Anyone here have experience with Roccat? Anyone have recommendations for other mice and why? Thanks.
The Savu has a palm grip shape, but is a bit different. The Kone Optical should be larger.
The Savu has a flawless sensor, as should the Kone Optical. Roccat's driver software is the best I've ever used, and their cables are a lot higher quality than Logitech's.
Unfortunately, the Roccat mice don't have DPI sliders; they have fixed DPI intervals. I believe the reason they do this is because none of the DPI levels are interpolated, whereas on other mice like the G400/G400S for instance, there is a native DPI level (800 in the case of those two mice) and it will be interpolated if you change from that.
The Savu offers 400, 800, 1600, and 4000 DPI. I wasn't aware of the Kone XTD Optical, the last I looked at their lines they had released the Kone Pure Optical, and I know that had more DPI levels.
EDIT: Upon a little research: The Savu and Kone Pure Optical both use the Avago ADNS-3090 sensor, which is flawless.
The Kone XTD Optical uses a difference sensor, the Avago SDNS-3988. I'll have to research this particular sensor, but it may be the same sensor used by the DeathAdder 2013, which would mean it's also flawless, though I heard Razer f***** up the firmware.
In short, this is a different beast than the two mice I mentioned, the Savu and the Kone Pure Optical and the facts aren't all in yet as far as I can tell.
