Mionix Saiph 3200 Laser Gaming Mouse
The overall shape of the Mionix Saiph 3200 is not very different from the OCZ Behemoth Laser Gaming Mouse, albeit the scroll wheel is opaque and all of the buttons are black. Of the seven buttons on this laser gaming mouse, five of them are programmable. These mouse buttons include two on the right hand side that can be controlled by the thumb, the standard left and right mouse buttons, the scroll wheel can be clicked, and then behind the scroll wheel are two small buttons. These smaller buttons can be used for adjusting the DPI sensor on the mouse.
The mouse DPI is reflected by the color of the scroll wheel as it is illuminated by LEDs. These colors include green, magenta, cyan, a lighter cyan, red, another green, and blue. The seven steps for the DPI adjustment are from 400 to 3200 DPI. On the palm area of the mouse is the Mionix logo. The area on the side of the mouse is surprisingly soft and rather comfortable when handling.
Flipping over the Saiph 3200 the laser sensor is obviously visible along with four large teflon pads, and then the weight tuning system. Similar to a number of other mice on the market, there are a number of weights that can be added/removed from the mouse depending upon your individual preference. Up to 27 grams can be added or removed from this mouse between nine weights.
