Roccat Kone Wheel Problems Fixed In V2?
There’s been a lot of talk in forums about problems with the Roccat Kone’s wheel. Apparently it can break quite easily and some owners are having to RMA their mice after just a week. My Roccat Kone is still working fine, so I don’t know if it’s just a bad batch of mice or that I’m more gentle with my mouse than some other players.
Well, Roccat are clearly keen to limit the damage to their reputation and they have been working on a fix. That fix is now available in the Roccat Kone Version 2. So, if you’re thinking of buying a Kone I would strongly advise you to make sure it’s a Kone V2, otherwise you might find yourself disappointed.
UPDATE: the Roccat Kone has been relaunched with new packaging, so it should be easier to make sure you’re getting the newer model.
