Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS Volos MMO Gaming Mouse Closer Look:
The software for the Tt eSPORTS Volos is one of the simpler setups I have seen in a while. It isn't overly glamorous and you don’t have tons of fancy tabs to figure out what you are changing. It has ten profiles to select and change individually nearly all from one view point. The upper right lists the profiles in two sets of five. Click on one and you can change most of the settings for it right there. The normal selection allows you to set up the mouse for "normal" use while the battle option just adds some effects with the lighting when you are gaming based on how fast you click. Basically it changes colors while you are under rapid fire. You can change every button on the mouse to about anything you want like launching applications, keyboard strokes, and even mouse functions!
When you go to assign a key you will have a small window pop-up. Don't worry, it's not confusing. You can select whether you want it to be a single key press, a macro (T key), sensitivity adjuster, program launcher, or you can disable it completely. If you select to have a mouse function over a keyboard function you will get another list of things to choose from. All which are what you would normally associate with a mouse: click, right button, scroll button, double click, backward, forward, scroll up, and scroll down. It's pretty simple. You can also setup more macros in the extra macro setting tab on the main page, this is pretty standard.
Closing the little window gets you back to the main page where you started. If you click on Performance on the right hand side, you can set the different levels of DPI settings on the mouse. For example, you can tell it you only want a single DPI setting to scroll through in a profile or as many as five as shown below. You can then set them individually to allow you to pick the right one for your current application. Here you can also set lift-off and polling rate controls.
Last but not least are the color controls. There are full RGB settings for the color ring, profile selector button, scroll wheel, and of course the Tt eSPORTS dragon. Unfortunately, all you have to work with is a color splotch and a good eye. You will be able to see if you are lighter or darker than your last setting as it gives you a before and after comparison. You will, however, not be able to set the 0-255 color settings you may be used to. It isn't the end of the world, but it is a little harder to get that exact color you want.
