The Good Custom lighting system. Excellent software. EasyShift button gives more flexibility. Ambidextrous.

The Bad No indicator on mouse to confirm your current settings.

The Bottom Line The Kova was fantastic, and the Kova[+] now adds Roccat's great software into the mix. We’d recommend this one for all.

Here we are at the Roccat Kova[+]. We already reviewed the original ambidextrous Kova , a gaming mouse that made the bold statement of not coming with software, and yet still managed to win our hearts.

The original had user-customisable lighting that was manipulated through clever button presses, a thick tyre of a scroll wheel, as well as switching the mouse to left-handed mode and adjusting DPI. It was all rather neat, only leaving us wanting for some sort of indicator of what the current settings were.

So how does the Kova[+] differ from the Kova? Well, it brings the software back, and removes all the button fiddling, making it more like an ordinary gaming mouse.
