Savu vs Kanav2

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
As far as I know the differences between these 2 mice are that one is using IR Led (savu) and the other a RED Led (kanav2), obviously they might have a differente circuit design but which one is performing better ?
I've read that the savu has skipping problems in some mousepads, does the kanav2 suffer from that ? (They might fixed that and at the same time added that ridicusly high lift off everybody is talking).

So my questions are....
1) which one tracks movement with more presicion ?
2) which one suffers from less lag (smoothing process)?
3) does the kanav2 skips on some mousepads as the savu ?

The red led will be better for a wider variety of mousepads the ir led will have better performance if you pick the right pad.

To compensate both models sacrifice LoD. Its just technical tradeoff not much you can do with that sensor.

To be honest i still would go with what fits you ergonomically best. The Savu has quite special coating on the sides, some hate it - some love it.
Shape/touch feeling be a deal breaker for you.

doesnt matter if you like or dislike the savu coating, it will rub off within a month.thumb.gif

Savu also have pretty high LoD.

Personal opinion, but I consider the Savu more shape restrictive than the close in design Kone Pure Optical that was released over summer. Back end flares out slightly more, thumb area is less recessive.

Performance is also more stabilized imho. Less of a skipping issue than Savu had when compared linearly across multiple mice. Situation where individual HW tolerances play a big part.

PS: If manufacturer relies on standard and recommend parameters, you'll be dealing with high lift off on both IR and Red LED's when benchmarked vs typical black surfacing. Limitation of 3090 and previous revisions.

From what I've read, the pure opt. performs better at some surfaces but a good surface with the savu and you can easily reach 5m/s without skipping and a good tracking quality.
So everything gets reduced to shape xD.
