  • Somebody teach me how to pronounce Roccat.
  • Roccat Ship Rocket Ship Based on some of their promotional videos that I have watched... Unless I am just hearing them incorrectly.
  • Only if you review this thing.
  • The ball is in their court... Here's hoping!
  • did I hear my name? you can contact me on Twitter: @_timkrause
  • Hey hey Tim, welcome to our site! :)
  • I'd also like to see a review from Paul. Posted from my Moto X Pure Edition via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Thanks for your support, guys!
  • Sucks their site says they only ship to Germany and Austria.
  • Yes, but you can buy our gear from many retailers and online shops all over the world. In the US Amazon sells ROCCAT gear, Fry's, BestBuy, Newegg and many more
  • Thanks for the reply. I checked Newegg, and they are listed as sold out right now. Ideally, Best Buy will get it and put it on display, so I can get a feel for it before a purchase. Also, just a personal suggestion. I am looking to replace my Logitech G502 right now. One thing I loved about a few of their mice, but I never see on others, is a scroll wheel lock. I love being able to have the wheel scroll freely on large web pages or doing something like fixing the camera zoom in WoW. Just a suggestion, and hopefully I can check this Kova out at BB. Looks great in black.
  • It's like it was made for me...
  • When are you gonna do a review of Steelseries mice? Rival or Sensei or Kana are pretty neat mice.
  • We have a review of the SteelSeries Rival 100 in the works - that's the mouse they sent us. We also have a SteelSeries keyboard review coming up. And Corsair mouse and mouse mat reviews a-comin'.
  • Wooo hoo!
    I use a Rival :D and Siberia V2.
    Ok, this is exciting!
