ROCCAT Savu Overview
The Savu is a mid-size gaming mouse, so it sits between the very thin mice and the larger claw mice. It is ergonomically designed for use with your right hand, sorry lefties. It has a black rubberized finish on most of the body with a very cool embossed ROCCAT logo on the right button.
As I said the top has a rubber coating on it, this make it very comfortable and smooth. You have two main buttons, which use Omron switches. Between those two buttons is a scroll wheel, which also has a rubber finish on it that makes using it much easier and more comfortable.
On the left side of the Savu you have two smaller buttons, mainly to be used a back and forward. Each side of the mouse features the “no sweat” grips which are rough plastic pieces. They actually feel really good. There is a small Savu logo towards the front of the mouse. On the opposite side there looks what would be a button, but it’s not. I think its just a place to rest your finger that does not have the “no sweat” grip on it.
Towards the back of the mouse is a light strip. This strip can be configured via ROCCAT’s software to be pretty much any color you like and you can even rotate between colors. If we flip the mouse over there are two large PFTE feet that will help the mouse glide over your mousepad with ease. In the center is the 4000 dpi optical sensor. ROCCAT is touting that the Savu is “the world’s only optical mouse to feature a 4000 dpi sensor”, which is pretty impressive.
The USB cable that connects from the front of the mouse uses a cloth brading and is pretty heavy duty.
