Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS Azurues Optical Gaming Mouse Review

Page : 1 2 3 4ALL

Before we get much deeper in to the review, let’s have a look at the features and specifications of the Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS Azurues Gaming Mouse.

The Azurues Mouse is advertised as being fully covered in rubber, but in actuality, just the top of the mouse has the rubber coating. Both sides of the mouse are the standard fare, hard plastic found on most mice.

The top of the mouse does have the advertised rubber coating and features an illuminated scroll wheel along with a Fade-In/Fade-Out lighted Tt logo.Both lighted areas are red in color. There is just the left/right buttons and a scroll wheel built in to the Azurues, nothing else.

The bottom of the mouse has some interesting items to look at. First the 3-way DPI switch is located at the bottom and as mentioned in the specifications, can be adjusted to either 400/800/1600. We would probably prefer to see a dpi “on-the-fly” option rather than a switch. Also at the bottom of the Azurues is a removable plastic cover over the Weight-in feature. Removing the cover allows access to the three 4.5g weights which can be removed or used in any combination needed to find your own sweet spot.

As far as testing the Azurues goes, I plugged it in and used it for a few days for my gaming sessions, office applications, video editing and working with pictures. We did notice during heated gaming that the button sensitivity was, well….. a bit too sensitive and often times resulted in unwanted clicks. This usually happened during intense fast motion periods. This may not be an issue for most people because I consider my hands to be a bit larger than average. I would imagine using the mouse for a more extended period of time would result in adapting to the over sensitive buttons during gaming sessions. To be honest, a lot of gamers do like very sensitive mouse buttons, it’s a matter of preference for the individual.

Using the mouse for just about any other task was a breeze and the mouse responded well under all DPI settings. I found the mouse to be very comfortable while using it for long periods performing mundane workstation type tasks and it could be considered a top of the line option for these tasks.

The Teflon feet provide an excellent smooth feeling as you glide the mouse about your mouse pad. The 500Hz optical engine pulling rate provides excellent tracking and precision movements.
