ROCCAT Burst Pro and Sense AIMO XXL Gaming Surface Impressions

Following up on our review of the ROCCAT Vulkan TKL Pro comes the other piece of recent gaming hardware, the Burst Pro gaming mouse. The weight of a gaming mouse has always been one of the most controversial features, while in the past gamers tended towards heavier more stable mice, the new trend is as light as possible. To that end we've seen some cheese grater style plastic mice that just look downright uncomfortable. ROCCAT's Burst Pro though has a unique solution, providing a thick comfortable covering on top of the honeycomb pattern underneath.But it's not just the weighting of the Burst Pro that is different. The same optical switches found in the Vulkan Pro lineup of keyboards are utilized for the mouse buttons yielding one of the most satisfying clicks I've felt in a long while in a mouse. The optical sensor on the mouse itself is rated up to 16000 DPI with polling rates up to 1000Hz. Utilizing ROCAT's Swarm software you can configure distance control and calibration, angle snapping, and even add various types of feedback to actions. Finally you can configure all 8 of the buttons to your liking.

Thanks to Co-Optimus, I've been fortunate enough to get fingers on a lot of keyboards over the years. It's clear that in the 12 years this website has been around keyboard technology has progressed quite a bit. The latest keyboard from ROCCAT Gaming is the shining example of this when looking in retrospect. I've been using the the ROCCAT Vulkan TKL Pro for the past week and I've come away incredibly impressed with modern keyboard keyboard technology.A TKL (ten-key-less) keyboard is a smaller version of a traditional keyboard without the number pad. If you are someone who doesn't necessarily need the number pad function, are looking for something more portable, or perhaps are just more familiar with a laptop style keyboard - a TKL may be for you. I personally am not, but wanted to give this mini size a go given the growing popularity. Right off the bat I was impressed with just how solid and hefty it felt despite it's small size. I was worried that I'd easily push the keyboard around on my desk while typing, but that simply wasn't the case.
