It's extremely rare for me to review the same product twice but when a manufacturer improves on a product via several firmware/software updates and component revisions then i think that it's quite reasonable and even expected to give it another spin. This of course applies for pretty much everything but it is even more valid when we are talking about peripheral devices such as speakers, keyboards and mice mainly because we can't really record their performance numbers in a chart (unlike for example drive performance). So today we will be taking a closer look at the latest revision of the already excellent Theron battle ready gaming mouse by our friends over at Tt eSPORTS.
“Challenge is the game” highlights the philosophy to bring out gamers’ addiction in gaming and the ambition of reaching to the extreme. Tt eSPORTS, a gaming obsessed division from Thermaltake, is uniting gamers from all over the world in a unique & fascinating eSPORTS culture, inherited the spirits of Thermaltake, is an energetic, powerful, bold and intelligent challenger who never says “no” to the extreme competition. We do not only provide gamers the ultimate gaming gears but also fulfills the passion to achieve the ultimate success. Thermaltake has been a well-known brand in the gaming & DIY market for PC Chassis, Coolers and Power Supplies PSU for many years. The brand personality of unique, aggressive, vivid and stylish makes Thermaltake an expert in creating exciting things and fascinating environment for gamers and enthusiasts. Tt eSPORTS inherited the brand personality with unique and creative design by observing users’ behaviors and requirements. The fan cooling design on Tt eSPORTS Challenger keyboard demonstrate the brand spirit. It is the worldwide first keyboard with fan cooling function that could dry your hand sweats and blow tension away during cut-throat competition.
The very first time i used the Theron was actually almost 16 months ago (on its launch date while at a previous publication) and the very first thing i noticed was its quite impressive design thanks to the several corners and an all-black cover featuring the usual rubber coating for superior handling. However back then unlike the 6500DPI gaming laser sensor Tt eSPORTS used in the Black Element the Theron was equipped with a rather slower 5600DPI laser sensor something which at first had me a bit puzzled. However after using it for almost two weeks it turned out to be a lot more accurate (even felt faster) compared to the Black Element largely thanks to its design and size. So when i learned that a new sample of the latest revision was about to hit our doorstep i was naturally curious as to what had changed since its launch.
