A good product that falls short of greatness.

How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The smaller sibling of the Roccat Kone[+}, the Savu has a lot in common with its larger counterpart, including extensive customization and on-the-fly macro access via the Easy-Shift[+] button. However, it has fewer available buttons, and its ergonomics aren't quite up to that of the Kone[+], which sells for just $10 more. And we really have to wonder whether the ROCCAT Achievements Display — which lets you unlock acheivements based on your mousing activity — is really something anyone needs.
