New Roccat Savu optical mouse. - Page 11

post #101 of 705
I tried the Savu for a couple of days and had a very good impression. Top notch build quality, design and performance. I hate braided cables, but this one was good. Absolutely loved the mouse buttons and the wheel.

Though I hated that sand paper feel of the sides and the shape, while not bad, was just not for me.

I need a shape similar to Zowie AM, Steel Series mice and the new Taipan, and I just had a much better feeling using my AM and couldn't adjust to the Savu. But I can recomend it.

Hello all wink.gif
I'm in vacations right now and I'm going home soon. I've seen and I've researched and i think I'll go for roccat savu, but i have some questions, how is the scrollwheel? I don't use it for gaming i mean i don't press it. Is it good? Also my biggest concern is the side buttons, are they well placed? How about the side buttons? Am i obliged to have 1 for macros? Asking this because i use on DABE mouse 4 for back on web browsing and in games...i can't reach mouse 5 in games lol waiting for your help.
Thanks in advance;)

Scrollwheel has a very nice feeling, it requires just enough force to make it scroll, but it always remains under control. Also, it doesn't wobble or feel loosened, it just works the way it should.
However, I don't know about how long will it last that way since I've had the mouse for less than a month, and Roccat is well known to have had mousewheel problems.

For me, considering I hold the mouse without touching much of the butt, the side buttons are well placed and well designed (they bump out a little so they're easy to find with your fingers), specially the rear one, which is easy to press by rolling the thumb. By default it is programmed to be the Easy-Shift[+] button, which makes the other buttons of the mouse double up with another function, but it can be changed to another button without a problem. The other button is not hard at all to press, but it requires for me to move the thumb a bit, however it's also easy to press. They're both very tactile and give good feedback. They are in no way loose or mushy.

As far as I know (can't test it now), the software allows for any kind of button assignations, so you can have no EasyShift button at all.

Lo DeMs smile.gif

Thanks for your reply.
I think that force to make it scroll will be smooth among time...Yes it's one of my problems is the scrollwheel issues... I asked you about the easy shift button because usually i use it in gaming. I don't know which mouse i should get if this or the zowie ec1 evo (i think evo 2 it's too little for my hands...), right now i'm using the DABE and i love it, but size does matter thumb.gif especially because i have small\medium hands and it turns to be a bit uncomfortable regarding to the buttons and also the side button 5 (i almost can't reach it, i can only reach it with the tip of my thumb tongue.gif)

Lo all =)

So i went on and bought this mouse. First impressions:
- it's shape it's very good, and the size even better smile.gif the mouse buttons are very nice (almost like my deathadder) and the side buttons are soft enough to press. It's a very light mouse.
-The scroll wheel it's a little stiff at first but i think with usage it would get better smile.gif i just hope roccat didn't mess with this (as everyone knows the problems with it).
For a person with small\medium hands size as me i can recommend it, because so far so good thumb.gif
His sides are a liitle awkward since there's sandpaper thing, especially on the right thumb, (couldn't notice so well on my ring finger and i think it's not so "agressive" sandpaper). I think even if with usage the sand paper goes away, i think there will be no problem and it will be like DABE sides.
As to mouse skates i think they're a liitle thin but since i use a cloth mat, i don't think i'll have to be worried. But if you use a hard mat, well i think those skates won't last too long....
At first i just plug and had a few rounds with it, but for some reason there was something weird with it, talking about tracking\response (also on paint i think i saw a little jitter\stutter), so i installed the software and changed the polling rate to 500mhz, since me or my pc can't handle 1000Mhz redface.gif

Thansk for end0rphine and DerMS for helping me choosing this mouse:)

If anyone needs some pics or opinions feel free to ask smile.gif
(I think i've found the mouse of my dreams...if not back to DABE smile.gif )

Avago 3090* sensor mice always seem to fair well in reviews. Companies don't try to charge ridiculous prices with them like they do with the dumb 5700 dpi Avago 9500 sensor mice. Too bad Roccat's rollout in NA has been so weak. Distribution has been hit or miss (I wanted a Kova earlier this year but it was out of stock everywhere). Invest in sponsoring like a big starcraft or LOL tournament and pair up with a major distributor like Amazon with good prices (ROCCAT stuff is still too expensive here) and you can make a serious dent in the market.

@Diogenes: Roccat only started in US beginning of this year. So i hope the situation will improve.

Kova has been replaced with Kova+ so it will be very difficult to get one.

I didn't spot a test for jitter and acceleration.

I'm interested in this mouse, it's sounding right now like it could be a deathadder replacement for me.
