Third, it provides good comfort, handling and response. Unlike other mice, the ROCCAT Kain 122's side buttons are almost not fluffy. The side buttons are well positioned and will not get in the way of using this mouse for daily tasks. However, when they are placed in the scene of a game, they feel very suitable to promote their use. The

scroll wheel feels great and durable, and the drag between each notch is good. Using the wheel in-game feels very accurate, especially when switching weapons, and the wheel button itself feels good for grenades. The scroll wheel has its own RGB area, which can also be changed in the Swarm software package.

Below the scroll wheel, the user can find a DPI switch that can switch between various DPI presets. Like the other buttons on this mouse, it feels good in the hand and feels good to the touch. Overall, the buttons on the Kain 122 AIMO are very well designed and have been significantly improved compared to some older models of this series of mice.

Next, we get the cable and manufacturing quality from the review. We will study the latter first. The quality of workmanship of

Kain 122 really feels great. One of the major improvements I see in the new mouse must be build quality. They just feel much better than the old model. The new cladding has obviously been carefully designed, and the case itself has excellent strength and robustness. When you shake the mouse vigorously, you can hear the slight vibration of the scroll wheel and main buttons, but not too crazy. Below

, Kain 122 offers two very slim skates that provide smooth movement on most surfaces. The cable is a newly designed braided cable that provides more than 30% flexibility to facilitate mouse movement and reduce resistance. Personally, I am not a big fan of braided cables, but they can certainly play a role in modern mice because they provide more sturdiness. When compared to other stranded cables this one seems to be doing a good job so the competition is fair.

So, we finally get to the long-awaited evaluation part: the sensor and performance part. Here, we will carefully study the internal details of the mouse and its performance in the game scene.

So, let's jump.

First, let's take a closer look at the sensor ROCCAT has decided to use in this mouse. As expected, they opted to use the new OwlEye sensor, which is a variant of the PMW 3389. It is used in many of the best

gaming mice (such as the ROCCAT Kone series) and provides excellent precision and responsiveness, such as you might expect. It is worth mentioning that most of today's modern mice are equipped with high-performance sensors. In today's market, you will rarely see gaming mice with imperfect performance. In any case, the OwlEye 16k sensor brings a maximum DPI of 16,000 and a polling rate of 1000Hz to the desktop, all of which can be changed in the software package.

So, as always, I first open CS: GO, which is my go-to game for testing high-performance gaming mice. After several rounds of deathmatch, it is safe to say that this is not a joke. I have medium hands, so it is absolutely fine to use it in most cases. I have been using Legendary MX518 recently, so transferring it to ROCCAT Kain 122 is not a problem. Aiming with this mouse seems easy to me, mainly due to the feel of the mouse in my hand. Because you have such a good grip on this mouse, your reliance on AWP's long-range jets and fast movement will increase significantly, or for me anyway. The weight of the

mouse feels well distributed in the center, which means that once I get used to the mouse, I can throw it very aggressively, and it actually feels very flexible. The skates provided enough softness and the new coating provided all the grip I needed. To briefly talk about the weight again, the weight of Kain 122 is 89 grams, in most cases, it is characterized as "medium" in terms of weight. Although the mouse seems to be getting lighter for competitive esports reasons, I think 89 grams is the perfect combination of weight distribution and build quality.

After playing CS: GO and Call of Duty for a while, I came to the conclusion that Kain 122 AIMO is a good mouse for FPS games. But how does this mouse work in different scenarios? Well, I tried to play a few MMO games shortly after this, and the missing buttons quickly became obvious and problematic.

It is always good to have extra buttons when playing these specific styles of games, but ROCCAT Kain 122 AIMO only provides a few extra buttons for bindable commands, so it is not the best. That being said, this mouse is not designed for MMO games, so we will leave it alone.

What we have not touched correctly is RGB. Like many gaming mice on the market today, ROCCAT Kain 122 AIMO is equipped with various RGB lighting areas to enhance aesthetics. Pop music, I mean pop music. The RGB of this mouse is very dynamic and outperforms most of the mice on the market today. You can customize the two lighting areas by going into the SWARM software package and most of the other areas. You will have a host of different preset options and color modes to choose from to give this mouse the look you want.

In the final analysis, as far as FPS games go, this thing doesn't

A better mouse, but considering it is designed for FPS gamers, it's not a big deal.

ROCCAT, like almost all mouse manufacturers, provides consumers with a convenient software package (SWARM) to help them customize this mouse according to their specific requirements. In this package, you will be able to customize RGB, DPI, polling rate, LOD, and almost everything else you can think of. RGB has a large number of preset options and 16.8 million colors to choose from. The DPI and polling rate can be modified in steps of 50, and the configuration file can be saved to the mouse for immediate use.

However, one thing I want to say about SWARM software is that if you are not used to using this type of application, you will be very confused. It is not the easiest to use kit that I have been lucky enough to use, it is true.

Fortunately, this mouse is almost plug-and-play, which means it works well out of the box.

At this point, we have finally reached the end of the evaluation of the ROCCAT Kain 122 AIMO mouse. Here, we summarize our final thoughts on this mouse and see how it compares to similarly priced alternatives currently on the market.

So what do I think of this mouse? Well to be honest I was very impressed with some of the rats that came out of the ROCCAT camp recently. His Kone Pure Ultra worked and felt great, and Kain 122 felt very similar. Performance wise, this is perfect for FPS games. It takes care of almost everything I throw at it and makes aiming a real treat, especially when spraying people when precision is the most important.

However, on the other hand, this mouse is not suitable for other purposes. It doesn't really provide too many features in the MMO gaming scene, because it lacks the necessary buttons to really compete in this market.

So where is this mouse in terms of FPS mouse? Well, its current retail price is about $ 65, which, to be honest, greatly reduces the value of this mouse. This allows you to enter and surpass the leading gaming mouse field, such as the Razer Deathadder and MX518 Legendary. Compared with those two mice, it has a similar level of performance, but the design is slightly different, but the price is higher. Deathadder is one of the most respected mice on the market today. However, ROCCAT undoubtedly brings better build quality. However, when you compare it with Logitech, you can't say the same. In general, I think its position is good, but it definitely has some fierce competition.

So the most important thing is that if you have large hands and need a responsive and sensitive ultra-precision gaming mouse, I think this mouse should be the focus of your consideration.

ROCCAT Kain 122 AIMO is a powerful wired gaming mouse that can bring many benefits to the desktop. In other words, it is clearly geared towards FPS shooting games, but it has failed in other areas.
