Here is the review of the new gaming mouse from ROCCAT called Tyon, this mouse offers 16 assignable buttons, 31 distinct possible functions, and a nearly limitless levels of customization thanks to ROCCAT’s dedicated Easy-Shift[+] Button.  While optimized for FPS gaming, the Tyon is an efficient, combat-ready and aesthetically fascinating masterpiece for all genres, including MMO, RPG, and more.

The Mouse

The Roccat Tyon mouse looks like an evolution of the Kone XTD mouse. The mouse body is 13.5×7.8x4cm, and weighs about 126g and on top the Tyon has rubber coated with ROCCAT branding applied. The edges of the left and right buttons we have two extra buttons which are configurable as is the clickable scroll wheel.

On sides of the Tyon they are a textured plastic, the right hand side is blank. The position for the Easy-Shift[+] button is on the bottom edge. With the Easy-Shift allows us to double up the functions of the mouse as pressing it activates an alternate command for each button. Above the Easy-Shift and thumb grove we find two thumb buttons and then there is a new X-Celerator Analog paddle.

Software

The R use a standard installer for their driver/software and when we then attempt to launch the control panel for the first time a window appears informing us that the Firmware will be updated (if need).

This process happens quickly and easily with only a couple of button clicks required by the user. At the end of the update we simply unplug the mouse and plug it in again to complete the process. With the driver installed and firmware updated we gain access to the mouse settings.

After you installed the program you get new configuration options into tabs with the first being Main Control.

Main Control allows us to change the key functions of the mouse and organise profiles. There are sliders for sensitivity, vertical scroll speed and horizontal tilt speed. The right hand column allows us to tweak the DPI settings, we have 5 settings available. Double click speed can also be configured and along the bottom of the screen are profile options. We can assign one profile to Windows use and point each at .exe files so that they automatically activate when a game or application is launched.

Without going into detail of every option this Tyon you can chance Color Control tab which lets us configure the LED sections on the mouse. One on the scroll wheel and then another trail which runs round the base of the mouse. The latest version of the ROCCAT software for Tyon can be downloaded here.
