Roccat Kiro question or alternatives

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm looking at the Roccat Kiro because I use the mouse with my left hand. I've been dying for ergonomic left handed mice with thumb buttons (without matching buttons on the left side to accidentally hit with my 4th and 5th fingers!).

 

But what really brings me here is the wheel. Can anyone describe how the wheel 'feels'? I hate freescroll, I need some tactile feedback/resistance. I do generally like the wheel on the G500s.

Got a Roccat Kiro myself. I don't think I've used a mouse wheel that gives so much resistance like the Kiro. It's far from a freescroll wheel.

Is it just resistance or are there tactile bumps (detents)?

Would advise against it anyway considering the pricepoint, which is just ridiculous.

 

What's ridiculous is that noone makes a somewhat normal multibutton erogonomic left handed mouse. Supply and demand says they can charge a good deal higher than an equivalent right handed mouse.

I doubt that, imo most consumers would then just say "f**k it" and go for a cheaper ambidextrous option, the Kiro itself is a good example, 60€ for an A3050 is just insanely high, and unless there is some sort of commitment beforehand, as a brand i wouldnt even start a lefthand only mouse, a good example is the Deathadder which obv. changed its PCB Design from 3.5g to 4g to one without dedicated sidebutton PCB, so a brand new pcb would have been needed to accomodate sidebuttons on the right which apparently wasnt deemed as a feasible option.

Hmm, I'm in the US, it's only $40 USD for a Kiro. To me this isn't a huge leap in price. Hell I bought a MS Comfort Mouse 4500 for $25, which is what I mean to replace because its wheel is terrible. If it were $60 USD I'd be running from this too.

I'm not actually intending to use it for gaming. Office work actually. I like heavy mice, if it's like a wireless with 2 AA batteries then it's perfect. Dunno about the balance tho, will have to try it to see if it works out.
