Roccat Tyon Gaming Mouse Review

By Tom Jaskulka

Manufacturer: Roccat GmbH
Product Name: Tyon Multi-Button Gaming Mouse
Model Number: ROC-11-850
EAN: 4250288174146

Full Disclosure: The product sample used in this article has been provided by Roccat.

First announced at Computex in June, Roccat’s newest gaming mouse has finally hit the market.  Packing an 8200 DPI laser sensor, Roccat’s EasyShift[+] function, configurable LED lighting in two zones and 12 programmable buttons (16 programmable “actions” if scroll up/down, etc. is included) the Tyon appears to check all of the same boxes as many high-end gaming peripherals.  Look a little closer though, and you’ll see that the Tyon adds a few boxes other mice can’t check: a “dorsal fin” switch and an analog paddle.  Powered by Roccat’s Talk FX software suite, will these innovations change your game?  Benchmark Reviews has received the black version of the Tyon (model ROC-11-850, also available in white) and we’re ready to run it through the gauntlet.

    Roccat are in my estimation without peer when it comes to computer peripherals and although I’d never buy this particular model, I wouldn’t dream of buying any other brand of gaming peripheral. I’ve had nothing but complete satisfaction in every way with all my Roccat devices even down to the mouse pad.

    I have to agree with Wayne!

    I have a roccat mechanical keyboard, Kave headset and Tyon mouse. All three items are the best I have ever owned. Love Roccat, the build quality is fantastic, Razer are piss poor in comparison!!
