Summary: So how well does the Mionix Saiph 3200 work with Linux? After
using it with Ubuntu 9.04 we were pleasantly pleased to find it working more so
than some of the other name-brand mice. All buttons when clicked could be mapped
through the X Event Viewer. Even the two buttons that are used for adjusting the
DPI of the mouse / the scroll wheel color were mapped out to buttons ten and eleven,
according to the event viewer.
Conclusion: Mionix is a a new company, at least in the United States, but they’ve proven they know how to make a quality product. The Saiph 3200 is a very nice mouse that I’m happy with overall, and I think most others who pick it up will be happy as well. The Saiph 3200 offers quite a few great features that I think gamers will appreciate, and even just the average user will like as well. DragonSteelMods gives the Saiph 3200 a 4.5 out of 5 score and our Recommended Award as well.
Excerpt: When it comes to FPS (first person shooter) games, you are only as good as your last frag. Keeping your skills in top playing condition require high precision hardware, which includes a high resolution mouse that can pinpoint a pixel at 1920 x 1200 resolution in a millisecond flat. The only thing you should have to worry about is your own speed and skill.
Conclusion: This mouse is very comfortable to use both for games and normal daily usage. The rubber pad gives me a very good grip of the mouse and the buttons are well positioned on it. The ergonimic design of the mouse has really been give alot of thought so the hand lays perfect on it.
Summary: The Saiph 3200 and Alioth 400 certainly make for a remarkable product line, which is especially impressive considering that the manufacturer is still really just starting out within the marketplace.
Conclusion: In a complete reversal for my expectations to what I was expecting with the Mionix mouse mat, the Saiph had a lot to live up to. Fortunately for Mionix, on the most part it did so admirably; though it’s not a perfect product. It is a bit expensive, has a loud click, and it’s software needs a bit of work. However, it’s got great sensitivity, it’s incredibly comfortable, and it’s a good looking piece of kit.
Pros: Good DPI sensitivity, Very comfortable, Looks good
Cons: Loud click, Buttons can’t be custom mapped, be nice to adjust polling rate, Quite e pensive
Summary: Meine treue MX 518 von Logitech wurde schließlich von der Mionix Saiph 3200 abgelöst - zumindest in Sachen Spiele. Dank den 3200 dpi und beiliegenden Gewichten ist mit dem individuellen Spielraum die nötige Portion Präzision gegeben, die Größe der Maus ermöglicht es auch korpulenteren Spielern Halt auf dem Buckel der Maus zu finden. Durch die zwei LED-Leuchten schindet ihr auch auf LAN-Parties im Dunkeln ordentlich Eindruck.
Pros: Zusatzgewichte, auch für größere Hände geeignet, Farbwechsel sorgt für schicke Gesamtoptik, Software funtkioniert einwandfrei (noch offen), gute Druckpunkte
Cons: Seitentaste stört Daumen beim Ablegen, nur USB-Anschluss
Summary: "Die "Mionix Saiph 3200 Gaming Mouse" ist das perfekte Werkzeug fÃ¼r alle ambitionierten Gamer, die ein HÃ¶chstmass an Ergonomie zu schÃ¤tzen wissen. Mit bis zu 3200 DPI einstellbarer Abtastrate gehÃ¶rt die Maus zu den Highlights unserer bisherigen Tests. Das "schwarze StÃ¼ck" hat seinem Namen alle Ehre gemacht...
