Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS Talon Gaming Mouse: Testing

The Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS Talon gaming mouse was put through two weeks of use and testing while working on other reviews. During this time it was used in everyday use; surfing the Internet, Photoshopping, and gaming. A mouse is very personal to each and every individual as each person has a slightly different take on them. The major question the consumer has is how it responds in these various tasks is important in different ways to everyone. This review is completely subjective and the only way to really provide feedback rather than assigning made up numbers trying to compare one mouse to another. This is my opinion, it but should give a good indication of what I love and hate about this mouse.

Everyday Use:

The Talon is a simple plug and play mouse, which was a relief for me when I first started to use it. I've come across a many mice that had it's DPI locked and all functions run by the software. That being said, without software, Thermaltake had to think of solutions to the user so that these functions can be accessed. A few quick key combos allows you to turn on and off lights, lock colors, and change the DPI. This made use for any application an easy switch. I didn't have to go into any settings to start gaming or working Photoshop. For a laptop or desktop, this mouse is great, even just because of the price alone. While gripping the mouse, it felt a little bulky, but luckily for the consumer, Thermaltake already thought of this with a solution. Just remove the screws from one or both sides under the mouse to remove the plastic parts. This allows for a easy fit to anyone's hand.

Working:

My typical work day tends to includes a few hours of Photoshop and a lot of typing on a keyboard. Because I have two monitors at home and at work, having a mouse that can change DPI on the fly is great. One second I may be opening, closing windows, and than throwing them to a second screen. My operations vary, but mainly, I'm swapping between Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, and ten other windows. This mouse handles these tasks excellently. It's hard to not continue to state the same thing over and over. Once again, with the option to have on-the-fly DPI settings at the press of a button, you can have lower DPI for more precise movement, while maintaining the higher DPI values for fast navigation. This makes switching from browsing the web to working in Photoshop less of a hassle and more productive.

Gaming:

For playing games, I typically play a wide range from RTS to FPS within just a few hours. For the last two years I've been using a Razer Deathadder, which has the same basic layout with only two extra buttons on the side. What was surprising is that I couldn't tell the difference between the Talon and that $60 mouse. In fact, the Razer options is completely controlled in software so I am usually unable to change the DPI, since I don't have time or want to download and install software across on my computers and laptop. Having a button right on top to toggle between DPI presets made switching from playing Starcraft to using the Railgun in Unreal Tournament painless. Overall, I would use this mouse for gaming and not think twice about another one.
