   The release of strong and popular game titles in the market almost always marks the release of several gaming related peripherals by many manufacturers, some of which are even designed after a specific game to maximize exposure. Just over month ago Bioware released the final chapter of their popular Mass Effect trilogy and although it was indeed a great game and offered many things not found in the past 2 titles still the ending was far from what anyone expected (honestly i never want that game to end so i hope we see an ME4 soon). In 3 weeks we also expect Diablo III yet another popular game title to get released. Unfortunately Diablo III has been in the works for far too many years (Blizzard used to be a lot faster) and so all of its excited fans are certain to devour pretty much every gaming peripheral launched under its name. Thermaltake and more specifically TteSports have yet to release a product based on a game title (which i agree is not what really matters with any product) and instead they just launched the Saphira gaming mouse we have here with us today.

 

   “Challenge is the game” highlights the philosophy to bring out gamers’ addiction in gaming and the ambition of reaching to the extreme. Tt eSPORTS, a gaming obsessed division from Thermaltake, is uniting gamers from all over the world in a unique & fascinating eSPORTS culture, inherited the spirits of Thermaltake, is an energetic, powerful, bold and intelligent challenger who never says “no” to the extreme competition. We do not only provide gamers the ultimate gaming gears but also fulfills the passion to achieve the ultimate success. Thermaltake has been a well-known brand in the gaming & DIY market for PC Chassis, Coolers and Power Supplies PSU for many years. The brand personality of unique, aggressive, vivid and stylish makes Thermaltake an expert in creating exciting things and fascinating environment for gamers and enthusiasts. Tt eSPORTS inherited the brand personality with unique and creative design by observing users’ behaviors and requirements. The fan cooling design on Tt eSPORTS Challenger keyboard demonstrate the brand spirit. It is the worldwide first keyboard with fan cooling function that could dry your hand sweats and blow tension away during cut-throat competition.

 

   Now because the Saphira gaming mouse was co-designed and co-developed with the help of White-Ra a professional StarCraft 2 gamer from Ukraine the main focus was not on raw speed like the more high end units found in the TteSports line but rather on an excellent grip/weight ratio for increased accuracy something that's really needed in RTS games (speed not so much). So instead of equipping the Saphira gaming mouse with an blazing fast 5000DPI+ laser sensor they used an slower 3500DPI one while at the same time they also implemented a weight adjustment system and a very good rubber coated body. Some hardcore gamers may consider the Saphira to be quite slow compared to other gaming mice (since I’ve been using 5000DPI+ units for over a year now that was my initial thought so i can't really blame anyone for thinking the same) but you'll be surprised at how well it handles, i was.

Well it may carry an 3500DPI sensor but it works great in most games. True i wouldn't use it with Battlefield 3, Tribes Ascend or Crysis 3 (when it gets released) but FPS game titles are not that many nowadays.

sold me on it with "Personally I’d use it without a second thought with 90% of the games i play"
