My 9hd seems to work well with it. The LOD is low and it glide well.

I must say that I am able to make the mouse malfunction on this pad if I move it really fast, but that's not the kind of speed that one would achieve during normal usage.

For me, the best glide/control combination are Hien and Hayate, but as I don't play FPS, I don't really tax these pads on malfunction speeds and can say nothing about this.

It seems to track well enough for me (low jitter level, no obvious negative acceleration at any speed that I can reach, but without testing for malfunction speed) on Hayate, QcK, 4HD, Goliathus Speed, Taito and P-TF Speed, out of around 18 pads that I have tried it on.

Definitely a hard-surface-mousepad like the "Razer Destructor". Works best with this optical sensor thumb.gif

BTW: if you're a low-senser you should NOT use a cloth-pad like SteelSeries QCK etc because of the malfunction wink.gif

Would this mouse be better at 500Hz or 100Hz? specifically for fps games (cs:go) and on a cloth mousepad. I use the mouse on 400DPI. smile.gif

I prefer 1000Hz - but it is a matter of personal preference.

My Roccat Savu arrived today.

The drivers and firmware are installed and it's doing everything a mouse should do.

The software is easy to understand and quite useful. This is the first high quality mouse I've ever owned, and I'm over the moon with it!

The only thing I have a question about is what the included credit card does?? thumb.gif

Savu's side is "sandier" than G500's side but IMO it feels better. Not sure about G9x precision shell. However, the "sand" wears down after use and becomes smooth (I'd rather like the sand grip...).

The included "credit card" was for registration on Roccat page, but the customer support told me that they are no longer using that code and newer batches won't have the card any more rolleyes.gif

Here is what Roccat told me:
Quote:
The ID is not connected with the product. The ID has been used for registering in the ROCCAT World but some weeks ago we changed the registering process and now the serial number is used. In products that are packed lately there is no ID Card included anymore.

Edit: An update to my initial LED problem, where the green was much weaker than red and blue and I had to use a setting like "R80, G255, B24" to get close to pure white.

Now, the blue has died and white for me is like "R40, G70, B255"...

I just wrote up this amazon review and wanted to share my experience thus far. I still can't decide what to do about it.

AFTER THREE DAYS HEAVY USE

Disclaimer: Regardless of my issues, I am not changing my four star review. The more time I spend using it, the more I find to like about it. If I give more focus to it's flaws, it's only because they stood out in such high contrast to the intuitive flow and natural ergonomics. Honestly, this mouse deserves a Savu Reboot or SavuV2 because it is just so close to amazing. I don't think Claw and Palm grip are mutually exclusive design parameters and I believe that a few small changes and a well run marketing campaign could jump-start Roccat in America. I'll be first in line if this happens.

Three days after delivery the scroll wheel is making a very loud, annoying squeak. It took my MX518 over two years to display a similar issue. I have a broken arm, so I'm probably pushing the limits on what might be considered heavy usage; but three days? I even paid for the next-day shipping.. I've heard that their support is great, hopefully I can resolve this quickly. Unfortunately, I won't be going with the same model. It's obvious that Roccat has a talented and ambitious design team, but there are a number of flaws that I assume will be worked out in newer mice. As far as I know, this hasn't been a larger Roccat quality control issue but an uncommon problem specific to this model.

However, I must make a few more points that I missed on my first impression.

PRO -- The scroll wheel seems solid, and comes with great options. Easy-Shift is completely ridiculous. Countless uses and with a manual profile swap you can have tons of linked macro setups for gaming and a separate browser profile. It weighs almost nothing. Seriously. This may be a personal choice, but I suspect that low sens FPS players will fall in love. Rather than giving me less control as I expected, accuracy and control were enhanced. Excellent design for Claw and or 'Paw' grip, just a pleasure. The left/right click are smoothly textured and placed perfectly; even more impressive are the well defined edges of these buttons. Angled sharply downward, they give a strong sense of position and relative space. There is a smooth section to rest your ring finger on, but the front/top edge is what pulls it all together. Look at the pictures to get a clear idea. The same downward angle is used on the / \ shaped mouse outline. Not only does it look great, it is incredibly effective in every grip. I've never seen anything like it on any other mouse, but it was the very first thing I noticed after the jarring sandpaper side grips. Words don't do it justice. Form meets function defined.

CON -- The size reminds me of that awkward stage between childhood and adolescence. Although the technical specifications show similar dimensions to the MX518, it's not quite big enough to classify as a medium mouse. Palm grip might not be possible at all for most people. I am 6'2 200 lbs with quite small hands, and I couldn't manage it. One of the side buttons becomes virtually unusable and my fingertips drag while the rest of my hand contorts in various ways to compensate. It weighs almost nothing. Seriously. I'm fine with it because I play with an 18in/360 @ 400 dpi, but much higher and I'd be concerned about adrenaline jitters affecting my aim. The DPI is not incremental and has only four settings, which was a surprise. Although the sandpaper textured grip is comfortable and unique, I doubt it's effectiveness. It's definitely more of a texture than any sort of grip. The fact that I can already see and feel it rubbing off doesn't help. The thumb rest is already streaked with smooth plastic. I'd imagine that once worn completely smooth, sweat could become a hindrance. It's alright to sacrifice in the name of aesthetics, but not at the cost of overall function! The driver software boasts a 16.9 million color range for the LED. It's too bad that there are maybe 16, and all of them impossible to see if you're actually using it. But honestly, even 16 is impressive, and I must admit that it does look nice on my desk.


FIRST IMPRESSION

I was slightly apprehensive about purchasing this mouse. Roccat isn't exactly a household name in America. However, I'm very pleased with it.

PRO -- The driver software is awesome, tons of options. The sandpaper grip is disconcerting at first, but I quickly got used to it. It also has a great ergonomic design, I would compare it to a Logitech MX518, but SLIGHTLY smaller. It's very light and the omicron switches are very responsive. It may be too small for a true palm grip, so if you loved your Deathadder I'd compare physical sizes, but I just slide my hand a bit further back.

CON -- My only real issues are that it wouldn't track on my shiny black plastic mat. Luckily I have a new cloth pad on the way. It desperately needs a third side button. The easy-shift macro toggling can only be bound to one of the two side buttons. I've been using them as front/back for web browsing for 20 years, there is no way I'm rebinding them.

Is anyone else getting a bit of stutter when they switch in and out of an application with a profile assigned to them? i.e. mouse stuttering during profile switch.
