Next we can move to button assignment, including the option to set secondary features on each button and then it is on to more detailed DPI/Performance options. The final screen, Advanced Settings, deals with options such as sound feedback (e.g. the software has recorded vocals which tell us the new DPI when we switch) and we can also move between left and right handed modes. It is also worth noting that if you have an Alienware system, the lighting for the mouse and system is compatible so both can be matched.

New Roccat Kova Review (Kova 2016) – User Experience and Conclusion


Starting with the build quality and design of the new Kova we have a mouse which continues the trend of very cool looking mice from Roccat. This time being quite space age in appearance. The surface used on the mouse body feels great, just the right amount of grip, while remaining smooth to the touch. The surface is applied flawlessly and each of the buttons has a good, chunky click to it. If we had one minor niggle with the overall build it would be that the side buttons do a have a bit of a cheap look to them but that is being really picky. Otherwise everything shapes up well, braided cable, decent quality low friction feet, etc.

As far as the software goes, all is well. Swarm is responsive and intuitive with all the key options we would want from a mouse control panel. We like that it controls multiple devices and that it has integration with Alienware, all nice touches. It does tend to get flagged by our anti-virus on occasion though, not as a virus just as an unknown program which is blocked. So if you have trouble opening the panel, add it to your exclusions list.

On the performance front, no issues there either. The mouse was responsive and tracked accurately. At 3500dpi it was a tad slow for our liking but the overdrive feature sorts that right out. With this doubled DPI enabled the mouse retained its good performance and we noted no issues with lag or erroneous movements.

Summary:  A well built mouse which looks cool and is backed by decent software. The native DPI may not be for everyone but the enhanced mode adds more than enough performance to make this a competitive mouse in its target market.
