Today we look at newer mouse by ROCCAT called the Lua. It’s a smaller three button gaming mouse with some neat features to go with it. This sleek looking mouse with its ambidextrous V-shape could prove to be a mouse for all gamers. ROCCAT has a whole host of mice, keyboards and more, and the Lua is on the entry-level side of things in terms of price, but not in features and performance. ROCCAT doesn’t skimp on features when it comes to any of their products.



The following information has been pulled from the ROCCAT product page and posted here for your convenience. For all the latest details, updated specs and downloads, make sure to head on over to ROCCAT's site here.

Our ROCCAT™ Scientists took the beloved three-button mouse model and injected it with some advanced gaming engineering – and called it the ROCCAT™ Lua. Packing a fully-adjustable Pro-Optic sensor in a rugged, ambidextrous V-shape – featuring No-Sweat side grips, soft touch surface, and an eye-catching illuminated ROCCAT™ logo – the Lua gives props to the past while heading boldly into the future. It also fits every hand and is all you need for control, comfort and style.

The Lua’s advanced R2 Pro Optic sensor delivers your choice of seven DPI settings – 250, 500, 1000, 1250, 1500, 1750 and 2000 – so you can game with accuracy at the speed that matches your style.
The Lua’s dedicated DPI button makes it simple to change speeds in the heat of battle. A single button press lets you quickly choose between tracking tempos – for the easiest way to customized acceleration. You can even program the button to switch only between the DPI settings you use most.
Thanks to its perfectly-balanced, ambidextrous V-shaped design, the Lua delivers comfort to both left- and right-handers. Its sleek form also ensures a top fit for any hand size. Plus, the Lua 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 you play comfortably during extended sessions. 
The Lua’s ultra-precise 2D scroll wheel lets you give every wheel command with absolute precision. Every incremental step locks securely into place, so you won’t have to worry above over-scrolling. When you want weapon 2, you won’t accidentally scroll too far and end up with weapon 3 or 4 – which can mean the difference between life and death in your favorite lightning-paced FPS. Plus, the Lua’s advanced scroll wheel delivers solid tactile feedback, so you can actually feel your way to more accurate gaming.
Mood matters and the Lua delivers.  It features a large ROCCAT™ logo lit up in arctic blue – which looks awesome on your desktop while perfectly complementing your other ROCCAT™ gear. The illuminated logo even has a “breathing” effect, so you’ll know your Lua is alive and well and awaiting your next command.
We built the Lua mega-tough and state-of-the-art using only the highest-quality materials and most advanced technology. From its premium electronics – featuring Omron switches and cutting-edge encoder – to its PTFE feet that deliver low-friction gliding, everything on the Lua is built to last and designed to give you an edge on your opponents. Game hard and long as much as you want, knowing your Lua is always up for the fight.
The Lua comes with the ROCCAT™ Driver software, which lets you easily customize your mouse buttons. And thanks to the program’s gorgeous and simple-to-use interface, all your Lua tweaking is fun and easy.
