ROCCAT Savu hybrid gaming mouse
The release of Diablo 3 just a few days ago would definitely have seen an uptick in sales of gaming peripherals, including gaming mice and keyboards, as geeks everywhere unit to click their way to victory, killing off a far more feminine looking Diablo (although he does seem to be more powerful – you know what they say about hell having no fury like that of a woman scorned). I am not quite sure just how many other mice actually bit the dust during the recent Diablo 3 release, but if you are in the market to pick up a new gaming mouse just for the occasion, then you might want to consider the mid-sized ROCCAT Savu hybrid gaming mouse.
ROCCAT describes this as “a competition device that fusion welds an ideal blend of performance and customizable features into a robust, perfectly-balanced, medium-size design.” If you want to know just how well it works, I would say give it a go yourself – after all, there is no better benchmark other than your very own palm taking it out for a test drive, but we shall take a closer look at the specifications in the extended post for the more theory-minded gamers out there.
The ROCCAT Savu is said to deliver a combination of unprecedented true 4000 DPI optical sensor horsepower, including their famous Easy-Shift[+] technology that paves the way for advanced button configuration, in addition to a customizable lighting system which is capable of delivering 16.8 million colors. Not only that, it is also touted to be the first mouse in the world that comes with a stats and trophy system, with ROCCAT shamelessly calling it the ROCCAT Achievements Display, or R.A.D. for short, an idea that has been transported over from online gaming to the hardware world.
Specially designed for those who love mid-size gaming mice, the ROCCAT Savu will also please right handers as it comes with an ergonomic right-hand thumb rest and soft-touch surface, making me wonder just how southpaws like me will react to this. Hopefully they will be able to come up with a left-handed version of this puppy in due time.
Depending on which continent you reside on, the ROCCAT Savu hybrid gaming mouse will retail for 59.99 Euros or $59.99.
