Roccat Kona Pure Review

Roccat Kone Pure Owl-Eye Review – May. 2019


The Roccat Kone Pure is the stripped back little brother of the ever popular Kone EMP which Roccat says has been designed for gamer’s who want the design of the EMP but in a slimmer package. Roccat has simplified the design slightly but haven’t skimped on build quality or tech giving the KPOE a tasty new sensor which caters to more competitive gamer’s. The new Owl-eye sensor is a modified 3360 (a 3361 optical) which is widely known as a fantastic optical sensor with 12,000 DPI capabilities. The design is simple yet striking and has been finished with semi-polished, high-quality plastic which looks great and boasts better grip. As you would expect with most modern gaming mice the KPOE has 1000hz polling rate and 1ms response time. Roccat is using Omron switches that have been given a life expectancy of 50million clicks.

The Kone Pure Owl-eye is one of those mice that you’re either going to love or hate, above all the design will be the deciding factor in whether or not this mouse is for you. Fantastic build quality and an internal brain that is right up there make the KPOE a fantastic addition to the gaming peripheral universe. We sit down and see if it really is that much better than its predecessor.
