Conclusion: After almost two weeks of testing the new Savu (mostly with Sleeping Dogs and the Planetside 2 Beta) we have good and bad things to say about it so here we go. First of all the pro optical sensor is quite fast and accurate while the glide pads produce very good results so when paired with a good...
Pros: - Build Quality (Housing/OMRON Switches), - Good Accuracy, - Quite Fast (4000DPI), - Rear LED Bar (16.8m Colors), - Control Software, - Rubber/No-Sweat Coating, - Easy-Shift[+] Feature
Cons: - Price (For Some), - Design (Not The Best Grip), - No DPI Selection Button
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 Roccat Savu Gaming Mouse comes with a 4000dpi optical sensor, 60 inches per second maximum speed, 20G acceleration, 1.8m braided USB cable, comfortable, affordable and well built. For the money, it's hard to go wrong.
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.
Summary: At first glance the Savu gaming mouse might look a bit more "basic" than some other fancy gaming mice, but don't let it's looks deceive you, this mouse is a performer and has features coming out of its ears.
Pros: High Performance, Nice Feel and Finish, Extremely Customizable, Very Comfortable, Lightweight, but still very Sturdy
