Roccat Savu Gaming Mouse Review

Rating: 9.0.

Roccat have made name for themselves in the gaming peripheral market over the past few years, going head to head with the likes of SteelSeries, Razer and Logitech.  They now offer a comprehensive range of gaming peripherals which includes various gaming mice, surfaces, keyboards and headsets.

Today we are going to look at Roccat’s latest gaming mouse, the Savu, which offers an adjustable 4000 DPI optical sensor and is the first mouse to offer Roccat’s Achievements Display, which is an application that tracks gaming feats and provides a statistics for analysis.

Roccat have kindly supplied us with one of their Taito gaming surfaces which we will use for testing.  We will also look at this briefly during the review.

    I bought one of these a while ago and I love it. i never use the software though, I never do with mice.

    That is a really nice design. the scrollwheel issue you mention, is it just stiff or does it click weirdly?
