Roccat Pyra Review

Introduction

As a general rule of thumb wireless gaming mice are far inferior to their wired rodent cousins; simply due to sod’s law which makes it run out batteries just as you’re going for that important kill. Roccat are well versed in the wired sector of the market with designs such as the Kone and Kova warranting significant praise from reviewers and consumers alike.
