ROCCAT Gaming Mouse with Linux Support

, , …,

If you want a fancy/gaming mouse with Linux driver (so you don't need to setup in Microsoft Windows first), a well known one is by the company ROCCAT.

Here's ROCCAT linux driver sites.

Major features:

The mouse got a “32-bit Turbo Core V2 72MHz ARM MCU processor”.

This mouse actually got 2 versions. One with laser sensor, one with optical sensor. The laser one has max 8200 DPI. 〔➤ What's Mouse DPI? Does Mouse DPI Matter in Gaming?

This mouse, got the highest built quality, of all gaming mouses, period. The software is also top-of-the-notch.

Though, i'm not too impressed with this one, in comparison to top gaming mouses.

For example, it doesn't have Logitech's hyperwheel, which is extremely useful. 〔➤ Logitech Mouse with Spin Wheel〕.

Also, it only has practically 2 useful extra buttons, for the thumb. Other fancy mouses got 4 or more.

The fancy LED, i couldn't care less. The high-tech sensor tech, which allows you to control stuff like lift-off distance, i couldn't care less neither. They are not something of practical concern.

I would recommend instead the ROCCAT Tyon Mouse.

A lesser version of the KONE XTD is the Knoe Pure, which has the same housing, but 1 less button, no color LED.

The Kova is a symmetric shaped mouse. Rather plain, but got all the important features.

If you don't mind taking a trip to Microsoft Windows to setup the mouse, then, tons of choices.
