Now we’ll have a look at the mouse itself. The Saphira is of moderate size, bigger than a Razer Krait but smaller than a Corsair Vengeance K90.
The surface of the mouse is smooth, with oversized buttons that flow into the rest of the chassis rather than being distinct entities. The buttons are divided by a 1 mm gap, and widen to accomodate the scroll wheel. The scroll wheel has a unique textured grip, with the more common straight lines replaced with curvy lines. The lowest part of the top frame includes a white Tt eSPORTS dragon that will no doubt be illuminated later.
The left hand side of the mouse includes the forward and back buttons. Both are integrated above the left-side grippy material, following the curve of the mouse. The back button is small and nearer the front, while the forward button is larger and towards the back. The other point of interest on the left side is the LED panel, which contains four diamond-shaped LEDs that reflect the current DPI settings.
The right hand side of the mouse is unadorned, with a matching piece of grippy material as on the left hand side.
Turning the mouse over, we see a two wide and long feet that travel around the periphery of the device. Inset from this we have the 3500 DPI optical sensor and four buttons that control the profile, DPI setting, polling rate and function lock, respectively. It’s these buttons that allow the Saphira to enjoy a relatively clear appearance on the top, although obviously these buttons are harder to hit in-game.
There’s a compartment near the bottom of the mouse which can hold the removable weights. There are five weights here, each measuring 4.5g for 22.5g in total. They are ensconced in a rubber trapezoidal configuration which should hold them securely without allowing them to rattle around too much.
Finally, we’ll have a look at the USB cable. It’s braided for increased durability and reduced tangles, and also includes a velcro strap for tidying up the cable when travelling. It concludes in a gold-plated USB cable.
