ROCCAT Pyra Wireless mouse review
The USB cable carries ROCCAT's branding and it's one of the features I really like about the Pyra Wireless. One of the problems of wireless mice is that your battery eventually runs out of power, an issue that can be very annoying when you're in the middle of a gaming session. Fortunately, ROCCAT thought about this problem and included a 1.5m long USB charging cable. Just plug the cable into your computer and you can continue your gaming session, even if your batteries are fully drained.
The rear of the mouse includes a sync button to establish a wireless connection and an on/off switch for saving battery power when the device is not in use. In the second picture you can see the battery compartment, two AAA batteries go in here.
The Pyra features a 1600dpi motion blue-optic sensor, it uses a 1000Hz polling rate and can register a maximum speed of 130ips and up to 30Gs of acceleration. You can also see the storage compartment for the 2.4GHz receiver in the picture below, when not plugged into your laptop you can plug it into the mouse.
Both sides of the mouse have rubberized areas to increase grip. The left side of the mouse has one button.
And the right side has another button, making a total of four buttons plus a clickable scroll wheel. Using the bundled software, you can assign a second function to the mouse buttons using the Easy-Shift[+] feature. It works by pressing the Easy-Shift[+] button (the left side button) on the Pyra and pressing one of the other mouse buttons at the same time.
