Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS Volos MMO Gaming Mouse Conclusion:
The Tt eSPORTS Volos gaming mouse is a mess of a gaming mouse if I've ever had one. It is literally a kluged piece of work that smashes an Xbox controller with one from PlayStation and births a reject even to Darwin's standards. You can't hold it like a controller, though the buttons are placed like you should just pick it up off your desk and attempt to do so. It's like it wants you to not only have two thumbs, but an extra small or ring finger as well. Finding the buttons while still trying to click and shoot, or even just look around, is like trying to actually do your homework while playing Warframe; it's just not going to happen.
The mouse isn't a complete fail, however. If you can pick a set of buttons to play with that don't require you to move your hand, it can be possible, but then why am I paying for the others? When I used the claw style grip at the front of the mouse, it gave me access to the Xbox-like buttons while mandating somewhat stable control over the mouse with full access to the left/right click buttons and scroll wheel. It wasn't really comfortable, but at least I could use the extra set of buttons. Getting to the others wasn't even an option from there.
I really don't know how to wrap up this mouse. It looks really neat and has a great concept of bringing the console gamer to the PC world, but I think most of them will scoff and wonder even more why we want them to play on PC. Ultimately, as wonderful as it looks and sounds, save your pennies for the next pony ride.
- Great simple software – very straight forward
- Lots of color options to play with
- Good build quality
- The extra buttons are awkward and hard to reach
- Can't utilize all of the buttons at once
- Fails on the point of having so many extra buttons
- It's a gimmick that is ultimately harder to use than a normal mouse
