I've not had the other mouse to compare but if FPS is your main staple then this is as solid as the A3090 optical sensors without prediction, acceleration, or angle snapping. At the 400 / 800 / 1600 DPI settings it's flawless IMO and find at 4000 DPI it jitters a bit.

I've had some time with this mouse and after an 8 hour day at work, about an hour into gaming later that night, my hand feels a bit cramped and I feel my hand size is a tad too big for this mouse. Woke up fresh on a Saturday and after a long four hour log of BF3 I didn't feel my hand cramping at all. I've come to the conclusion that I'm good with the mouse but not for very long extended periods of time.

Come to love FPS gaming with the Savu but comfort is a tad more important than a slightly better sensor. My current A9800 laser sensor excels just as well in every area but FPS and the shell feels more comfortable for MMO's, however I prefer the Savu as my primary FPS only mouse and just in time for Crysis 3. smile.gif

The Savu might be for you if you can handle the down side of the mouse non-slip grip coming off in time which I've not experienced yet. If your hand is a good fit for this mouse, you'll like the thumb ergo and the different types of grip you can manage out of this mouse. If the 400 / 800 / 1600 DPI settings work for gaming then this mouse is great performance wise.

Thank you for answering my question, I play at a very low DPI at the moment being 400 so I guess that's okay. The non slip sides coming off is kind of a deal breaker for me, I'd honestly like to buy a mouse that would look the same after a year or 2 of use. I'm curious if anyone has had experience with Roccat RMA? How is it?

I can recommend the Savu too, stellar build quality IMO. And it offers a great sensor with great performance at 400 and 800 CPI, zero jitter and high accuracy. I'd definitely take this over the G9x simply because of the sensor. I also never liked the wheel and the clicks
Fast enough

I just bought a Savu and I couldn't agree more. I used the G9x/G9 for years and it was my 'go-to' mouse for a long time. For me personally the Savu beats it handily. It's a similar "midsize" form factor but much more comfortable. The only thing the savu lacks that I would appreciate would be a tilt wheel.

For me the positives on the savu:
- midsize but more comfortable
- lighter
- better tracking
- MUCH better scroll wheel despite not being side-scrolling
- better cord
- just as capable software (easy shift is surprisingly intuitive)

Does the savu support the Mac? I may pick one up if they're not too expensive for use at school

Drivers won't work, but settings saved to mouse should. Easy shift features are functional.

Kone pure also works.

Drop polling to 125hz. More delay, less ripple smile.gif

As an owner of Roccat mice including the Roccat Kone+ I can say that they wear out VERY quickly! Within 3 months the areas around the mouse were actually quite worn out.

As a Starcraft player I use the mouse quite extensively and it failed within 8 months, also the bottom weight fell out- I've never changed it...

I would not recommend their mice if you're looking for Solid Quality.

or maybe just use the newer mice that were fixed in most areas...

I just got my Savu, and my hands sweat a lot, am I doomed to get weared out sides?
