ROCCAT LEADR Wireless RGB Gaming Mouse Review

ROCCAT LEADR Wireless Multi-Button RGB Gaming Mouse




Looking at the left side of the LEADR, ROCCAT shows us a new way to think about multi-button mice. Along with the left side being made of textured plastic, the name painted on it, and the large indentation for the thumb, we can also see seven of the buttons. The two near the front, on the top, are used for DPI selection, the paddle at the top will scroll a page up and down, while the buttons just below it will change the page back and forth. The button nearest the bottom is the Easy-Shift+ button, which essentially doubles the number of buttons the LEADR offers.





We notice that the exposed metal trim at the bottom wraps around the back of the LEADR, and is also where we find the offset ROCCAT logo. The center section is also rubberized for extra grip, while the bottom part is made of textured plastic.




On the right side of the LEADR, we see that the side is nearly flat, but it is still slightly concave for added grip if you need to lift this mouse. We also find a pair of buttons at the top, similar to what we saw on the other side, but this time the buttons are used for profile switching.




The front of the mouse is angled heavily for ergonomic reasons, and the front edge is blunted. The metal trim starts and ends here, as it points you to the connection for the cable, should you want to use the LEADR in wired mode.




Between the main buttons, at the top of the LEADR, we see a backlit scroll wheel which scrolls forward and back, and also can be used to click inward as an additional button. The shark fin behind it can tile to the left and right, which will adjust a web page right and left, or can be set to anything you want like all the rest.




Under the LEADR we located four PTFE feet, two at the front, one on the right side, and a large one at the back. The eye of the sensor is shifted forward in this design to leave room for the charging pins, and to the left of them, we see the power switch and the pairing button. Near the connectivity point at the front, to the right of it is a small button, which needs to be pressed to release the USB cable after it has been connected to the LEADR.
