The Easy-Shift[+] Advantage
ROCCAT's Easy-Shift[+] technology lets you set two functions for each mouse button and the scroll wheel – so you can pack a massive amount of quickly-accessible control into an uncluttered space. Who needs the mess of too many buttons? Plus, Easy-Shift[+] lets you take advantage of exclusive Easy-Aim technology, which automatically reduces your dpi setting at the touch of a button – giving you pinpoint accuracy when you need a sniper shot.
Enhance Your Experience with Color
Because you can illuminate its rear light bar in your choice of 16.8 million colors, the Savu is more than just a run-of-the-mill gaming mouse: Its a fully-customizable atmosphere booster that greatly enhances the mood of every gaming session. You can even program your Savu to “breathe” or change colors in your choice of shades.
Customize Your Settings
The ROCCAT Driver lets you easily fine tune a multitude of settings and gives you sound feedback with every change so you can game exactly how you like. Plus, it lets you easily create and store up to five game profiles that can load automatically with your favorite games. The ROCCAT Macro Manager lets you record and edit your macros with precision. It even comes with presets for top games and office apps so you can enjoy your favorites with no wait.
"No Sweat" Side Grips
The Savu features a special perspiration-resistant coating on its side grips called “No Sweat” that provides steady, slip-free play no matter how sweaty your fingers get.
Optimally-Weighted for Comfort
The Savu's mid-size design is optimally weighted, allowing for smooth, comfortable and steady gliding. Crafted for right-handers, the Savu also features a soft-touch, ultra-comfort surface that lets you game long into the night without irritation.
Precision Scroll Wheel
The Savu's 2D scroll wheel lets you give every wheel command with absolute precision. Every incremental step locks securely into place, so you won't have to worry above over-scrolling. When you want weapon two, you won't accidentally scroll too far and end up with weapon three or four, which can mean the difference between life and death in your favourite lightning-paced game. Plus, the Savus advanced scroll wheel delivers tactile feedback so you can actually feel your way to more accurate gaming.
Top customer reviews
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.
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.
• Super great sensor, tracks absolutely amazingly with just-right-for-me sensitivity settings
• The software is fantastic. I have several profiles set up for different games, but also for several pieces productivity software. Able to tie the LED color to different profiles so I'm never guessing what profile I'm in.
• I love the vertical scroll wheel's feel.
• The Easy Shift functionality. Some of my profiles use it to expand button assignment options, some don't need it. It's great for making this thing do more than a lesser mouse without cluttering tons of buttons all over it.
• I usually prefer heavier mice, often with adjustable weights, but I've found myself really liking how little effort it takes to move this around. The extra-wide gliding pads seem to give it just the right amount of starting friction while still keeping it smooth.
• Cord seems super durable.
• I really miss, coming from a long line of Logitech mice, the sideways-tilting scroll wheel. I usually reassigned that to alternate functions and not having it here has frustrated me at times. Being able to use Easy Shift has partially made up for it.
• As long as the buttons hold up to the test of time, I'm going to be very satisfied with this mouse for years.
The software is straight forward and easy to use. The only negative about the software is the "achievement" system for clicks pressed, pages scrolled, etc. Totally unnecessary, but on the other hand it does offer great comedy value when you unlock new "mouse power levels". I'm a "scroll enthusiast". The custom light system works as advertised.
Sensor is the Avago 3090, which is the best sensor on the market. This was my #1 requirement in finding a new mouse. May be picky about mousepads, but from what I can see this only affects a few % of users... and of course can be fixed by changing to another mousepad. (My Artisan Shiden Kai in red works fine with it).
Side grips are a bit rough but wear down to a smoother surface after a week of use. I really like this side grip (and find it comfortable), it's grippier than most rubberized grips and far far better than any smooth plastic siding.
Click force required is mid/heavy. Resting fingers have no chance of triggering a key press. Scroll wheel is fairly heavily notched as well.
Thumb buttons are out of the way and well placed, and are again fairly heavy buttons as well (very important for side buttons).
Comfort is mixed, but this is mostly because it's a smaller mouse that's suitable to both palming and claw gripping. I'm 6'3 and have fairly long fingers, and there's a bit of strain on my pinky finger due to the smaller mouse size. Overall I'm more precise with a smaller mouse and fully expected it to be slightly less ergonomic than the Deathadder I came from (which is slightly on the bigger size of midsized). Regardless, I use this mouse 8 hours a day without issue.
Back to build quality, there are a few little things that are done really well on this mouse. As you can see from the thumbnail, the left click button overhangs the side of the mouse. This means there is no crack between the outer mouse shell and the button to run your finger across or collect grime, and it also eliminates any chance of misclicks due to missing the click surface. IMO, all mice should adopt this design, it's very well thought out. Equally as helpful is a little no click ledge to the side of the right click button. People hold mice in different ways, but personally I use this ledge to rest my ring finger on the mouse without it actually coming onto contact with the right click button. Again, very well thought out and every mouse should include this design feature. I attached a video to show what I'm talking about.
