A couple of things.....
1. From anyone who has used the Nyth and also one of the Logitech G mice with a side-rocking scroll wheel (I assume this is patented by Logitech) is the experience similar with the Nyth's discrete side-rocking button? Or is it more cumbersome? One of the few reservations I have about purchasing the other mice versus the Logi G900 Chaos Spectrum is the lack of a left/right rocking scroll wheel "button", but the Nyth is one of the few mice that offers something in theory comparable, a button placed before the scroll wheel that can be rocked left and right. Its hard to approximate on a mouse without such a feature if you could nudge that button easily without forcing you to abandon your finger's duties on the scroll wheel.
2. I would like to echo some of the other comments that it would be nice to see a lower price. I know it saves money compared to the MSRP, but most vendors today - even some large ones, don't sell for the MSRP and if they do, they start lowering the price a month or two into its lifespan. There are some great deals on Massdrop and sometimes it is the place to get things hard to find elsewhere, but there are also deals like this where even the lowest price is comparable to a standard or frequent sale price on major retailers; which can be frustrating especially with the delay given the time for the drop to complete and to ship etc.. If we're buying in bulk it would be nice to see this at say, $70 or so - I think it would encourage many to wait and purchase here. Would it be possible to add more "stretch goals" with lower prices?
i have the tyon i bought it to test out the mouse and brand
i am in love with it, comfortable and feels like quality. i bought it refurbished ( half price ! ) as i really wanted the nyth due to mainly the dorsal fin and frankly i am a cheap person ! the dorsal is hard to deal with at first but now it is easy, and yes you can scroll side to side- although i have not been scrolling to the sides that much. the mouse ( even using the dorsal ) is well thought out and comfortable i have a very very large hand and it fits mine perfectly ~ the mouse itself feels like it will last and feels quality, but only time will tell !
the software while functional i wish was a little more polished for win 10. it works fine, but lags a bit :/ razer also has a "side scroller" but i would steer clear of them imo they have no quality left :/
we can all wish :/
hope it answers your questions
Roccat Tyon is magnitudes beyond any gaming mouse available today. It is phenomenal and well worth the premium.
Roccat programmability is just so freaking cool. Not only is it great at gaming I have it programmed for general computing usage. All my most common navigation keys as well as various Windows settings are all programmed into the buttons. And I can plug it into any PC without any special drivers and all of my programmed functions and macros are ready to use.
Here are my most used functions: most chrome browser hotkeys (page & tab navigation, bookmarking, close/restore pages, zoom in/out/reset), sound volume and device driver settings (I frequently switch between sound output sources), logins and password entries, common app launches (notepad/calc/roccat kb/mouse setting, and mouse sensitivity and DPI cycling and a few custom Reddit macros)
It truly is the best most full featured mouse. And it feels wonderful.
It also looks good to me a handicapped gamer. Finding a right handed mouse with function buttons on the left side is a struggle.
Handicapped gamer? Never would have thought I would run into another handicapped person who hadn't just given up on gaming. I have a left radial nerve injury that makes it impossible for me to use the keyboard with my left hand, so I got a Razer Naga Epic 5 or so years ago. It is starting to really show its age, so I thought I'd try something different.
In addition to the huge number of buttons on the mouse, I built a custom game controller for my left hand from arcade game components (like a Sanwa JLF 8-direction joystick and 6 Sanwa 30mm arcade buttons) and an Arduino Leonardo microcontroller dev board. It shows up as a standard USB keyboard to my computer, and the joystick responds with the WASD keys, while the buttons cover the other commonly used functions (jump, crouch, melee attack, flashlight, etc... depending on game). I tend to use the mouse for voice chat, quick switches to primary/secondary/melee weapon, reload, sprint, and any inventory management functions).
It would be neat to compare notes sometime. Happy gaming!
Awesome I will add you as a friend look forward to talking about this in great detail.
