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.

The Roccat Savu is a well-built mouse with a surprisingly long list of features, like a grip that won't let go, a 4000 DPI sensor, and an array of programmable functions.

The ROCCAT Savu is one of the best mice as far as control and software features I have ever seen, specifically at this price point.

We are left with very positive impressions of the Roccat Savu gaming mouse. It offers the same impressive build quality that we’ve experienced from Roccat in the past and we have no doubt that this mouse will survive a tough gaming environment for many years.

Though we wouldn't recommend it as a pure gaming mouse, we were very pleasantly surprised with how good the Roccat Savu felt.

With the Savu, ROCCAT have continued their streak of producing excellent products. The Savu is a mid-range gaming mouse, built to a very high quality and offering some of the features we see on the higher end products such as the Easy-Shift[+] system.

Unless you’ve always wanted to know how many times you’ve clicked your mouse, we don’t think that achievements alone aren’t enough to convince us that the Savu is worth £45. We like the design but if you can find another £10 the Kone+ is a better choice.

Would I recommend the Savu? Nope. Skip this mouse. Too many compromises, underused driver software, and lousy ergonomics.
