Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Amazing shape
This mouse is great for every grip style. The right side lets you palm or fingertip grip the mouse regardless of your hand size.
Pro Full Linux support
Roccat releases official drivers for Linux for most (if not all) of their products and the Kone Pure Optical is not an exception.
Pro No angle snapping or pointer prediction
With the Avago ADNS-3090 optical sensor being used there is no angle snapping or pointer prediction to be found.
Pro All the buttons are very well-built
The buttons are very well-built and feel great when pressed. There is almost no travel to any of them and they are quite light.
Pro Good build quality
The Kone Pure Optical has great build quality. The materials with which this mouse is built feel very nice, there's no squeakyness when pressing the buttons and the cable is pretty good as well.
Con Not an ideal mouse for large hands
The Kone Pure Optical is quite a rather small mouse, suitable for people with small and medium-sized hands. Someone with larger-than-average hands will most likely be very uncomfortable using this mouse.
Con High lift off distance
The Roccat Kone Pure Optical has a higher than average lift off distance of 3mm, though it can be lowered in software (Advanced Settings tab) or with the tape trick.
