Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS Theron Infrared Gaming Mouse Testing:
The Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS Theron Gaming Mouse was defiantly put through over a week of use and testing. During this time it was used it in everyday use, surfing the Internet, Photoshopping, and of course some gaming. As a mouse is personal to each and every individual so how it responds in these various tasks is important in different ways to everyone. This rather subjective review is best to provide you the feedback from use rather than assigning made up numbers trying to compare one mouse to another. It's pretty easy to distinguish the likes and dislikes of a mouse through words rather than leaving it to you to decide what a 7 or 8 really means. No guessing game – here's what I liked, and here's what I hated.

Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS Theron Infrared Gaming Mouse Results:
For everyday use I've found this category to become redundant. It almost is here just to state the mouse even works. Yes, the Theron IR works as an everyday mouse. I can see how this category can be more of point when an MMO mouse becomes so convoluted with button options that it just simply cannot work for everyday simple tasks. However, this mouse isn't of that nature and I leave you with the simplistic answer of YES, it can help you navigate, it lets you scroll through email, and indeed allows you to play your Facebook games. Moving on…
Working with a mouse usually involves Photoshop work (for these reviews) or some kind of precision clicking. Unfortunately most of my REAL work involves more the keyboard side of things, but nonetheless leaves the mouse to be important at times (sorry mice friends). The mouse has the ability to cycle DPI options and control enough features to get the mouse under your control – whatever that may be. Getting things right, of course, always takes a little effort to perfect, but is ultimately worth it. I found no troubles in getting this mouse where I needed it other than in the discomfort of it being beneath my hand (just an odd mouse fit for me). So putting it simply, getting the right precision just takes some setting manipulation.
Gaming is why most of you even bother reading these reviews – you want to know how this "gaming" mouse is going to improve your game. If you're just a lousy shot, well it probably won't help. If you are a lousy shot because you have a real POS for a mouse, well then it might. Just try to remember no matter how much you throw at components it won't make you a perfect sniper; practice is still required for that. However a mouse that responds well and can easily change settings is a step in the right direction. Being able to manipulate anything to work for you is always a plus. Thus being able to set your DPI to YOUR preferred setting versus what it thinks it should be makes it a lot easier for you to get good at something.
The Theron is just that. It is great at changing settings in-game, outta game, you name it. Having profiles really lets you fine tune your game and the Theron gives you five. The only thing the Theron can't help you with is what I'll call posture; if it doesn't fit your hand, or the form you like to hold, well it's just going to have to be another mouse. All in all, if you can deal with the body, the Theron has enough there to modify to get the best in-game control you need.
