TT Esports Saphira Gaming Mouse


This mouse is marked out from its bretheren on the Tt eSPORTS website through its designer – the StarCraft player White-Ra. White-Ra is a well known figure in the StarCraft II gaming community – the Ukranian Protoss is overwhelming well mannered towards friends, opponents and fans alike and his gramatically deviant sayings set him apart. The two most famous are ‘We make expand then defense it’ and ‘special tactics!’ This mouse takes inspiration from the latter phrase, but will it be able to become as well loved as its designer? Let’s find out.

On the rear, we find a suspiciously gramatically correct quote from White-Ra about the mouse as well as the product features listed in over a dozen languages.

Looking inside, we’ll see the full bundle. As well the as the mouse itself, there’s a carrying case, a couple of booklets, and three stickers featuring the Tt eSPORTS logo.

The case is made of a comfortable cloth material and has a Tt eSPORTS logo stuck to one side. The case is opened via a zipper, and the inside reveals mesh side netting and basically nothing else; what you’d expect given that it isn’t much bigger than the mouse itself.

    Dear Sirs:

    I am in the Greater Montreal QC, Canada area, and bought one of these today from a local Canada Computers store.

    My purpose, though was not that of a gamer. I am more an unusual retired techie of some 50 years standing.

    I was looking for a mouse that was capable of hardware travel speed control down to about 200 D.P.I.

    I have an incurable problem with small motor coordination (one of the many reasons why I use computers.

    Also I wanted a mouse that would run much slower when installing operating systems and in Linux (I use Fedora,, an RPM distribution).

    On my main machine I plugged it in through the KVM switch running XP, and It does just fine, and I like the large size as mu\y hands are large.

    However it’s not so easy in Linux. I had to replug my old mouse (a non-optical PS-2 for now, via an adapter, as the KVM is USB).

    So far I have not had the chance to research added software in Linux, which may well have been developped as a “mouse backend”.

    I hope I will not have to return it because what it does so well in WIN does not end up working in Linux.

    Can you offer any suggestions. If this works as I need it, I will be back to Canada Computers for another of your mice.
