Roccat Pyra – a few days

I have now had the Roccat Pyra for a few days, I haven’t used it that much for gaming so far but I have gotten the first feel of it. The mouse is a really nice portable little thing. It is not as nice for the hand as the Razer Oriochi, but then again – the 2.4 GHz wireless radio is surprisingly apt and responsive. I have tried the Pyra in Left 4 Dead, Crysis 2 Neverwinter Nights 2 and surfing. In all games the wireless option is great. No lag that I have been able to notice and no missing clicks or such. This is something that the Razer Oriochi seems to have some serious trouble with when on Bluetooth.

The Pyra is a bit tricky to get a feel for. The mouse have two thumb-buttons, but then one have to realise that the mouse is for both left and right handed, so one thumb button will be a pinky-finger button.. The thumb button is also set for the Shift+. This means that other buttons will have a second command attached while the shift + button is pressed. What this do for me in gaming is that instead of two thumb buttons for right thumb – I have to right thumb and press right and left click to get mouse button 4 and 5 functionality. I would have preferred two thumb buttons – but! the Pyra thumb button isn’t that nice perhaps with all things considered – this may be for the best after all.

The Pyra is a small mouse that works well with a portable setup. The Laser makes the Pyra able to track most surfaces you may counter when on the move like, black surface, cloth, tables, glass, news magazines etc.

Good:

  • Portable
  • Good wireless functions
  • Batteries that will be charged when cable is pugged in
  • Good driverswith many functions
  • Good tractions

Bad:

  • Questionable thumb button
  • Design not always to ones liking
  • Shift+ tricky to get into
  • Batteries make the weight and size un-wieldy
