Starting with the outer packaging we’re greeted with the Thermaltake red and black theme. Although the Theron product page was lacking in the marketing department you can see from the bottom of the packing that the Theron has various features such as ‘battlemode’ and on-board memory for you profiles and macros.

The rear of the packaging is a relatively dull affair spruced up by Thermaltake’s own eSports player ‘Softball’ endorsing the mouse.

The Thernon’s packaging sports a ‘door’ which is typical of most gaming mice packaging around these days.

Inside we’re shown some of the aspects the Theron has to offer up. I’m surprised to see the illustration tucked away on the inside as the Tt eSports Black had a similar diagram on the rear of its packaging, not only that, perhaps Softball’s message being switched to the inside would be more personal than on the back.

Plastic casing and packaging removed, here is the Theron itself.

First impressions of the Theron is that it suits more of a palm grip than a claw one as it allows you to stretch your fingers right out whilst maintaining good coverage of the mouse.

Here is the solitary right sided key which is assigned as the macro key by default.

Both the bottom light and the dragon design light up.

Left side buttons are configurable but are assigned as backwards and forwards like most.

Last shot of the mouse and you can see the default sensitivity buttons as well as the elongated design I eluded to above.



Thermaltake ship the Theron with a carry case, driver disc and two stickers.

 The themed connector is a nice touch.

The braiding on the cable feels of a good standard and I couldn’t spot any frays.

Last but not least are the weights.

At 2.5g per weight, they’re not massively heavy and if someone told you there was weights inside the mouse you’d likely be surprised as the mouse glides perfectly fine with them in. There are also two buttons that are for the polling rate and profile selection as well as a button-lock slider.

Much like the Thermaltake Black, the Theron comes with a solid package included. The weights are almost certainly an in-direct feature but they’re not weighty enough, really, to have any bearing on performance to be of note.

That’s the hardware of the Theron covered, let’s take a look at the software.
