Savu, DeathAdder, and G400

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi --

Just wanted to make a quick post to get some opinions on the three mice I'm currently deciding between: Savu, DeathAdder, and G400. I play mostly lowish sensitivity around 800 CPI, and I'm having a bit of an internal debate on the three.

I'm quite impressed with the Savu and I believe it defaults to 900 CPI. Just trying to get an idea of performance at that level vs running the DA at 1800 and stepping down the sensitivity in the driver software or Windows slider.

The G400 I listed as I believe it's native default is 800 CPI as well. I am probably leaning the most towards the Savu as it appears to have the best build quality and setup out of the three.

Thanks for the insight in advance.

My g400 just died after about a year, which is why I got on to look into a new mouse. It was a good mouse, but less than a year? Mx518 it ain't.

Savu is natived and defaulted on 800DPI, its the best A3090 based mouse to date.
Feels good, weights low, nice teflons, best wheel mechanic, subjective comfortable sides (very roughy and sand-paprish), gloss side-buttons, very good and balanced force-to-click and reachment, between small to mid size.

I've been playing at 400-450 DPI recently and running some tests noticed that on my surface (white Puretrak Talent) I am getting a higher tracking speed using a DA @ 450 DPI and 500Hz vs running the Savu at 400 DPI at any Hz. Makes me wonder if it's a) better to run each mouse at native (1800 and 800) and adjust via Windows slider or b) default the mouse to 400-450.

It almost seems more convenient to me to run the DA at 450 then use a button to adjust back up for desktop use vs playing with the Windows slider to get lower rates from 1800 or 800 with the Savu.

Thoughts?

Do you tend to reach the both mice max speed limits? or they both works for you flawlessly most of the time?

My point is that - just use whatever works better for you, do not go over the hype and look for 9999m/s max speed, just use whatever works for you (shape wise) and sensor (works flawlessly ingame)

What's the best mousepad for Savu?
post #7 of 7
I love the snd-kai from artisan (low lod) and also liked ss 9hd (plastic pad) or qck/taito.

Savu works well with several pads and you can almost just follow your personal preference.
