Mionix Saiph 3200
The mouse itself follows on from the colour scheme of the box, with a matt black colouring and a nice central logo; printed in white without the usual green styling. Size wise it’s a little smaller than the whopping Roccat Kone but it’s still a pretty sizeable peripheral. The whole thing is covered in a nice soft rubber material, which is often found on these high end mice nowadays, but it’s still good to see.
The right hand side is ergonomically designed to allow your little finger, and ring finger to sit comfortable along it’s edge.
On the left hand side is a strange thumb pad with ridges for grip, I suppose. Above this is a programmable, dual see-saw type button.
At the front end we have the usual 3 buttons – left, right and scroll wheel – along with 2 DPI switch buttons sitting just behind the central wheel. They’re all made of soft rubber, apart from the DPI switchers, which are made of a tough plastic.
Flipping the Saiph over, you have the laser sensor itself, sitting in the middle of the mouse.
Around the edge are the teflon mouse feet, which is the industry standard for gaming mice as it provides a very smooth glide across your mat.
The circular area of the underside twists open, to reveal the adjustable weights. Taking out, or putting extra ones of these in allows you to customise the weight of your mouse, allowing you to fine tune it’s impact on your wrist.
The cable for the Saiph is a simple rubber affair, with a gold tipped USB connector on the end. Gold doesn’t have much affect on anything when it comes to USB connectors, but it does increase the durability of it slightly over the nickel standard.
