On the outside of the Savu you find a rubberized center section with side sections that are textured and ROCCAT calls this their No-Sweat Side Grips. The rubberized section contains the right and left click buttons with a scroll wheel with a very tactile feel to the moves made with it. On the left side there is the Savu name at the front edge of the mouse with a well defined indent for your thumb. Between this side and the top and the page forward and EasyShift[+] buttons left in shiny black lactic. In fact the entire Savu mouse is black, except for the lit area at the heel of the mouse that give you 16.8 million choices of what color this area can be.
Inside the mouse uses a 4000 DPI Pro-Optic R3 sensor to handle the 60 IPS of travel at up to 20Gs of force. This is the fastest optical sensor currently in any mice and if you are an optical sensor purist, this is the best of the best that money can buy at the time of writing. The DPI can be selected in four levels; with the software you will have the choice of 400, 800, 1600 or 4000 DPI. You also have control of angle snapping which also relies on the optical sensor. For a longer life and more clicks to be had, the buttons in this mouse are backed with Omron switches to not only offer something high-end, but to deliver the customer a long time of use.
Currently in the US I am only finding two listings for the ROCCAT Savu, but I think with a bit more time they should fill more e-tailers shelves. One listing has the Savu priced at $79.99, while the Amazon listing is set to $99.99. Any smart shopper knows to find the best deal and if I can have this mouse $20 cheaper, it doesn't take long to know where my money is going. Either way you look at it, $79.99 is a bit pricey, but seems to be the going rate for most mice of this caliber.
Remember you aren't just buying a mouse here; you are buying the combination of some well established software that makes the mouse more complex and thus more enjoyable to use. Given this mouse can handle all of this with just four buttons and a scroll wheel just makes things that much easier to use versus some of the monsters out there with over a dozen additional buttons to do the same job that the Savu can offer.
