When it comes down to getting a new Mouse and Gaming Surface, the market is just flooded with them. Trying to make an educated decision on which one to get can be confusing and one would wonder if there's any difference between them anyway. Over the past 5 years or so there have been great improvements in the mouse peripheral devices wherein these have evolved into something more advanced and complex with others offering more than just the typical functions. Better tracking lasers, cameras, higher DPI levels that would seem too high to keep up with along with stronger longer lasting switches, customizable weight and lighting. Well, one thing we can tell is that Roccat makes some of the higher end mice and mousepads today and we will be taking a look at some of their products namely the Roccat Kone XTD Gaming Mouse and Siru Gaming surface.
