Tt eSPORTS Saphira Gaming Mouse

Mice, Peripherals


The Saphira is an excellent mouse for RTS players and is one of the most comfortable high-grade gaming mice that I’ve ever used. While durability, the software and a relatively low 3500 DPI optical sensor may be an issue for some, I’d suggest that they’re relatively minor issues that do little to detract from this top quality mouse – a worthy recipient, then, of White-Ra’s endorsement.


Nice, simple top design
Sensitive and accurate, well suited for RTS
Comfortable and sits well in larger hands


FPS games would benefit from a higher DPI
Not the most durable design

    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.
