When it comes to those holiday shopping lists, we find that there can be a lot to consider from the various likes to the various hobbies and interests as well. Like many who enjoy playing games both on the various consoles and on the computer, I find that they really appreciate the gifts that help make the gaming a lot easier. So when we were introduced to the products from the Roccat brand which include the Roccat Kone AIMO and the Roccat Kanga, I knew that our tech blogger would enjoy checking them out and sharing why these make a great addition to this years holiday guide!
The ROCCAT KONE AIMO RGBA Gaming Mouse is an extremely nice mouse, one that is definitely worth every penny. It performs better than it looks and honestly, it looks amazing! I like that it boasts a “remarkably accurate Owl-Eye optical sensor”, and I am amazed at how very smooth, accurate and responsive it is when in use. The multi-color illumination and a glowing mouse wheel makes it awesome to look at it, and in my house, I don’t think anyone has not noticed it.
For me personally, I like the wide buttons and the ergonomics. With the smooth feel and motion, I know that I’m able to use it for hours without issues compared to when I use a typical mouse where I can start feeling the numbness and tiredness in my wrists after a little bit of use. Another thing that really stands out for me is that this mouse also has a feature called Easy-Shift. Easy-Shift is a button duplicator technology that allows you to assign a second function to the mouse’s buttons. It is simple to program and has options for simple commands and even complex macros. To sum this up, I think you would have a hard time finding a better looking and better performing mouse for the gamer in your life, and after reading the ratings, I can concur. I highly recommend and would give this mouse a 5 star rating without even blinking, as well as recommend it to any of my gamer friends and those looking for gifts to give a gamer this holiday season!
Then when it comes to finding a gift that is a really nice compliment to the mouse, you really have to go with the ROCCAT® KANGA – CHOICE CLOTH GAMING MOUSEPAD. This pad has a nice feel to it. It’s rubber backed so it doesn’t slide around and the surface makes a great mouse, even greater, giving the user precision mouse control and I like that it’s only 2mm thick. Now you might be thinking, it’s just a mousepad. Yes, it is a mousepad but it’s not “just” a mousepad. You know those times when you are playing a game and something goes wrong, you generally yell that, the mouse didn’t move, the pad slipped, it wasn’t my fault. Well, with the Roccat Kanga, just be prepared to take responsibility for your own gaming death. With this mouse and mousepad combo, when it happens, it will be really hard to blame these guys. Which in all, I found both of these items from the Roccat line to be a must for any gamer, and makes it so if you have a gamer on your gift list, consider these two items.
Product received, thank you to Roccat as well as the PR for supplying me with a product for this review, all opinions are my own.
