Hello, today I want to post my feedback on the saphira mouse.

 

I have bought 2 of this mice, one for my brother and one for a friend, I tested them both, and this is what I think:

 

The hardware part is brilliant, the avago 3090 sensor is just a masterpiece and the switches, wheel and shape of the mouse are just spot on, the problem is the software. I dont know why thermaltake decided to make a different software for each peripheral, i have tried the black mouse too, and the software is just very weak and buggy, in the saphira software when i try to adjust the dpi it has to be done in a special manner because if you try to type in the dpi number it just doesnt save, the double click speed and the scroll speed slider just dont work, and if i save a polling rate value to the mouse it resets when i plug it in a different pc, I set it to 1000hz on my pc and when i plug it in my laptop it works at 125 or 500. The software gave me a windows error after instalation and the graphical design of it is just wrong.

 

The other problem with this mouse is the sensor, I dont get why it malfunctions so fast, this same sensor (3090) works flawlessly on other mice (spawn, g400, deathadder 3.5g) I can reach high speeds with those mice, but in the saphira it locks when I move it too fast, Ive tested this with a qck+ mousepad and with a wooden desk and it gives me the same result, it has to be a firmware error because this sensor is just perfect, the saphira is very accurate and works good, but it doesnt reach the same speeds as other mice with this sensor.

 

I have tested this mouse with different computers and versions of windows and it is always the same errors.

 

It has a minor bug too, the lock switch is bugged, when you flip the switch to lock the side buttons they still work.

Hey col.phantom,  that sounds a bit off.  May I ask what firmware you are using?

Any news on that one? If so, was it FW or just problems with specific surfaces, or maybe problems with the LED used?


Yes, it´s me from OCN.

And German Support will write a new Firmware? :P

 

Well, i dont have my Saphira anymore but problems with the malfunction speed are also present in the Azurues(i still have one) which malfunctions at ~2.5m/s, while nearly everything else with A3080 achieves well over 3m/s. The problem is that Tt´s entire Lineup atm is a compromise, Azurues/Azurues Mini and Saphira have low malfunction speed, Black V2, Ventus/Ventus X have high Speed related Variance(Acceleration). Please dont see it as any kind of bashing, the shapes you have are really good, but ultimately one thing is wrong everytime.

Just checked with the team, and the issue has already been sent to the vendor, but there's no news regarding on the issue yet.

I highly doubt there will be any news. Especially because this issue has existed since the day this mouse was released.

 

It's been 3 years, you can only stall for time so much.
