ROCCAT Kain 100 AIMO – Review

For PC players, having the best equipment is like having the best weapons at your disposal and as such, if your keyboard is your shield, then the gaming mouse would be equivalent to your sword. With so many so many different types in the market now, it can be hard to choose, especially if you are looking for something specific. It doesn’t matter if you are a casual player or an aspiring esports professional. Having the best is non-negotiable and here is why the ROCCAT Kain 100 AIMO should be your next option.

The Kain 100 AIMO has a sleek, ergonomic design and is easy on the eyes. This mouse features rubberized textured side grips that make it easier to handle even on the long gaming sessions or intense competitions. Not only that but the Kain 100 AIMO also features an anti-wear coating, which makes it more dirt resistant and only adds to your grip the longer you play. The Kain 100 AIMO also utilizes an RGB feature which adds to the appeal and is relatively straight to the point in its design.

Though the design aspect is important, it doesn’t even come close to performance. Whether you are someone who keeps your pacing slow or you like it fast, the Kain 100 AIMO has features that encompass both aspects. One feature that the Kain 100 AIMO boasts would be its “Titan Click” Feature. The Titan Click feature along with its split button design enhances both motion and precision, pushing the boundaries of what a normal mouse can normally do. This feature also enhances each button click to react faster, giving you more of an edge against the competition. The Kain 100 AIMO features up to 8500dpi and has six different dpi settings, so whether you are a player who plays fast and needs the reaction speed or more casual with a slower experience. The Kain 100 AIMO has the speed and dexterity for all player types.

There was only one aspect that the Kain 100 AIMO lacked and it is not that big of a deal and that would be it’s customization. As stated, the Kain 100 AIMO features a split button design and only has 2 programmable buttons. With that in mind, this mouse is perfect for players who play games that do not require extensive key mapping such as MMORPG’s or some MOBA games. With its fast speeds and button dexterity, this mouse is perfect for games of the FPS genre or even some MMO’s that utilize the mouse for movement and precision during in-game combat.

With all these key features being top notch, you would think this product would cost you an arm and a leg, but that could not be further from the truth. With an original retail value at $49.99, this mouse is not only affordable but, also what I believe to be the best bang for your buck.

Summary
All in all, I really had a blast testing out the ROCCAT Kain 100 AIMO. It had everything I would ask for in a cool sleek design with performance to boot. I really liked the grip featured on the sides, especially since my hands tend to sweat during crucial moments but the pads on the bottom allowed for almost zero resistance and a smoother experience. If you are looking for your next weapon of choice and need something that will not break the bank. Then look no further than the ROCCAT Kain 100 AIMO. Just take my word for it, you will not be disappointed.
