German gaming peripherals manufacturer, ROCCAT Studios, today announces the release of the ROCCAT Lua Tri-Button Gaming Mouse. The Lua packs advanced gaming engineering into a sleek and clean ambidextrous form that offers a comfortable fit for every gamer's hand. Its advanced Pro Optic R2 sensor features a choice of seven DPI settings – 250, 500, 1000, 1250, 1500, 1750, and 2000 – so gamers can play with accuracy at the speed that matches their style. It also has a dedicated DPI button that lets players easily change speeds in the heat of battle. Gamers can even program the button to switch only between the DPI settings they use most.

"We took the beloved three-button mouse design and injected it with our innovative gaming engineering – and created a killer tool that gives props to the past while heading boldly into the future," says René Korte, ROCCAT Founder and CEO. "The Lua delivers everything gamers need for control, comfort and style – all in a sleek and slim design that offers perfect comfort for every hand."





Thanks to its perfectly-balanced, ambidextrous V-shaped design, the Lua delivers supreme comfort to both left- and right-handed gamers. Plus, it features No-Sweat side grips that ensure a steady hold even when the action gets hot – as well as a soft touch surface that lets gamers play comfortably even during extended sessions.

The Lua's ultra-precise 2D scroll wheel also lets gamers give every wheel command with absolute precision. Plus, the Lua's advanced scroll wheel delivers solid tactile feedback, so gamers can actually feel their way to more accurate gaming.

The new mouse also features a large ROCCAT logo, illuminated in arctic blue - a stylish boost to gaming atmospherics that also complements other ROCCAT gear perfectly. The logo even has a 'breathing' effect, so gamers will always know that their Lua is alive and well, and ready for their next command.

The Lua comes standard with ROCCAT driver software, which lets users easily customize their mouse buttons. And all Lua tweaking is fun and easy thanks to the program's gorgeous and simple-to-use interface.

The ROCCAT Lua is available now for a MSRP of €29.99 / $ 29.99.

Plain and simple, cool looking mouse, shame it doesnt hit 3600 dpi though, i run my mouse at that and then turn the sensetivity down in game instead. Curious as to what sensor this has. Nice to see it's not burdened with jank extras

IMO needs more buttons without the price doubling.

Definitely for palm grippers, or people with larger hands. I am pretty sure this will be uncomfortable for my type of hands. Apart from that decent mouse.

I'd like to see some inexpensive gaming mice with weights. Don't need a huge assortment of weights or easy access in changing them out. My old MX500 came with a weight. Had to take the mouse apart to reach it but it had one. The MX518 I got later didn't but insides were the same so I just took them both apart and swapped it. My wrists stopped hurting immediately. Yeah it would be awesome if it was easy to change but if it is a good mouse overall I could care less about having to take it apart or an assortment of weights. Just give me 1-3 weights, some screws to open it up, and I'm satisfied. Gotta open it to clean it someday anyways.

Like this? The mouse from the video is a4tech F4- it costs 16 euros at home. That's cheap for a gaming mouse.

if you look at the official pictures (2nd in first post) you see a braided cable but in reality the mouse doesn`t have braided cable. marketing FAIL, they really think buyers can be tricked so easily? think again ******* !


marketing picture vs review picture

They still give it a 91%. I like that Roccat is hitting lower price points with quality products.

I have seen marketing departments first hand, and they aren't very smart. They probably didn't understand exactly what a braided cable was.
