Review of computer mouse Roccat Savu: medium size, medium quality
13 March 2015
Excerpt: If you are looking for a comfortable, but not too expensive gaming mouse, you should pay attention to the model Roccat Savu. Nevertheless, professional gamers and fans may be to refrain from buying.
Summary: The Savu is a good mouse, but it's not a great one, and that's not quite enough of an argument for dropping $60 on it. The Hyperion Fury, for example, is optimized for first-person shooters, but sports a similar layout, better buttons, a broader DPI range and incredible software.
Conclusion: Roccat have a really strong product here, it is packed full of so many features on a hardware level and this is expanded upon heavily by the best firmware / software in the business (in my opinion).
Pros: The build quality and finish feel great, look great and the mouse doesn’t feel like it will break after a heavy gaming session., The price is incredible given the quality of the sensor and the extensive feature set, There is plenty of grip for those who suffer from sweaty hands while gaming
Cons: There was a lot to love about the Savu, the only minor issue I had with it is that I prefer a larger mouse, maybe if Roccat are reading this they will make a full size edition?
Conclusion: In conclusion, the Savu provides an excellent overall experience, with the ideal purchaser being an FPS gamer that prefers a more portable mouse and desires the smooth mouse responsiveness that only a high quality optical mouse can provide.
Summary: Final Thoughts
You know upon first look at this mouse I honestly was not that impressed. I mean a simple design and 4 buttons plus scroll wheel, that really does not scream awesome to me. After using this mouse for a little while I am thoroughly impressed.
Pros: – Very comfortable, – Awesome software, – EasyShift[+] functionality, – Up to 5 different profiles, – Easy to program macros, – Light strip can be customized
Cons: – Finger marks happen pretty much right away
Summary: The PC gaming community is one that thrives upon innovation, customization, and comfort when it comes to hardware and accessories. Outside of keyboards, there may not be a more important device that needs to be reliable than your mouse.
Summary: The Savu is a good gaming-grade mouse. It has a firm grip and a body design that is suitable for both palm-grippers and claw-grippers, but the mouse lets the user down with its pre-configured dpi settings and by not having a button to change the resolution.
Pros: Rubber coating and rugged plastic surface provide a firm grip, Easy-Shift[+] technology increases the number of programmable function, Easy-Aim feature allows for a quick drop in resolution for precision shooting, Nice color effects, Pre-recorded macros for games and applications
Cons: Fixed resolution stages, No button below the wheel to change the resolution, No horizontal scrolling on the scroll wheel, Doesn’t have a weight adjustment system, The beautiful light effect is hidden under the user’s palm
