Introduction:

Today we'll be taking a look at the Thermaltake Theron gaming mouse.  As you know, Thermaltake is well known for their computer cases, high end CPU and GPU cooling systems and power supplies.  Also on the market, Thermaltake has expanded their brand into Tt eSPORTS which feature high end gaming keyboards, mice, mouse pads and headphones.  Let's take a look at the new Thermaltake Theron gaming mouse.

Theron Box

First Impressions:

The Thermaltake Theron gaming mouse comes in packaging you would expect from Thermaltake.  The box is flat-black and grey diamond plate graphics with red accents and the tribal dragon.  The photo realistic image of the Theron explodes off the box in a fireball.  The packaging is put together well and it opens like a book held together with Velcro.  Once opened, you can see a list of some features on the left inside cover and on the right is the mouse itself.  The packaging even has a wrist cut out so if you find the Theron in a retail store, you can get a feel for the shape and size of it before purchase.

Open Box

Out of the box, the first thing I noticed about the Theron gaming mouse was the size and weight.  The Thermaltake Theron is on the larger side of gaming mice (123.65 x 73.8 x 40.2mm) which is good for me considering the large size of my hands.  This mouse is quite heavy.  Heavier than most mice I've used even without the five included 4.5g weights.

Bundle

Included in the bundle is a soft zip up bag, a copy of the warranty, easy to read instructions, some pretty cool looking dragon logo stickers and an installation disk.

Weights

Taking a closer look at the Theron gaming mouse you'll notice the smooth flat-black finish. The finish feels slightly rubbery and highly durable.  The Theron has your standard left and right click buttons, forward and back, a clickable scroll wheel plus a macro button on the right side and DPI controls behind the scroll wheel.  Towards the bottom of the Theron you'll see three light bars; one on the left, the rear and right side. Let us not forget the dragon logo with the pause-break lighting feature on the palm rest.

Turning the mouse upside down you'll see the two ultra-smooth Teflon feet, the weight box with the five 4.5g drag weights, profile selector button, polling rate button, lock/unlock selector for the side buttons and finally the laser outlet.  The Theron mouse comes with over five feet of high quality braided cable which seems to be Thermaltake’s standard and a gold plated USB connector.

On the next page we'll cover some of the features and specifications from Thermaltake before we jump into testing.
