In my short time reviewing peripherals, one company that has kept me fairly busy is Thermaltake and their eSports lineup. I have seen everything from the basic designs with high-end components, on up to the engineer's wet dream of a mouse in the Level 10M. What I have seen tells me that Thermaltake and the eSports crew are good at two things. One of the most important is that they use top-tier components inside of these mice to give the customers ease of use and great longevity. The other thing I noticed is that they aren't afraid to try new things, and have no barriers to restrict them like other manufacturers who do very minor things to an old design and reintroduce it as something spectacular and new.
Breaking the barriers between mice and console gaming controllers is what brings us here today, as we look at the latest mouse that has been delivered for us to have a look at. Think of it like this. In simple terms, you are given a wide, heavy, and well contoured design of the mouse, there are also seven buttons designed for normal uses, but on top of those there are four other special buttons.
These buttons are designed to replicate the feel and look of console controller buttons found on both the Xbox 360 and the PS3. By that, I mean that the four buttons have the PS3 iconography, but the colors of each switch mimic those of the Xbox controller. Any way you look at this slick addition, you now have 11 buttons at your command to decimate the competition in your favorite games that require Macros or spamming of commands.
There is plenty more than just the basic idea we covered here. Top tier components, slick and stylish aesthetic additions I have never seen prior to this, and a feel that not many other mice can offer users. For those of you that are still interested, continue on with us as we cover the rest of the Thermaltake eSports Volos laser gaming mouse. There is a ton still yet to cover, so strap in and enjoy the show as we take you inside and around the outside of this mouse to see just what is going on with the Volos.
