The Kova+ Max Performance Gaming Mouse

On the right side of the Kova+ the right click button receives a ROCCAT name indented into the plastic just above a pair of buttons. The back edge is cut away to accept a left hand thumb and has the area under the side buttons coated with a rubber coating called Griptech. The "window" at the bottom left and the "L" shaped cutout in the right click button are both backlit with LEDs.

The palm rest has a low slope to it and leaves your hand pretty flat across the mouse. There is just a slight hint of a ridge that fits right into your hand. It is also wide enough to support your thumb, but due to the universality of right and left handed use, your pinky is left dragging on the mat.

Down the left side of the mouse you can see it is a mirror image of the right side. Since the right click had the ROCCAT name, the Kova+ name on this side just makes a lot of sense and is out of the way of your thumb, so it should be there for years to come and erode away with hours of use.

Under the mouse you can see it is supported with four very smooth plastic feet that allow the Kova+ to glide effortlessly. Along with the company name, product name and the unit's serial number, there is the sticker in the middle for the 3200 DPI Pro-optic sensor to track your movement.

Once I plugged in the mouse I couldn't help but play with the options a bit so I could show you a bit of what the LED lighting has to offer. Here it is in blue!

Red is really best for use at night, it isn't coincidence that there are red lights on a submarine. With high amounts of light on the Kova+, the red LED lighting does get lost.

And for the NVIDIA fans out there, you can make the Kova+ go green or four other choices of light blue, purple, pink and orange.
