Thermalright Leetgion Hellion RTS Mouse Detailed

Over the month, Thermalright's gaming peripherals brand, Leetgion, released its first gaming mouse, Hellion, which it also claims to be the world's first "mechanical" gaming mouse. Perhaps they didn't find ball mice "mechanical" enough. The mechanical part Leetgion is referring to, is its switches. The Hellion uses a combination of Cherry MX Blue and OMRON Japan micro-switches. The main buttons apart from center are backed by OMRON switches, while a side "attack" macro button is backed by Cherry MX Blue.

Under the hood is an AVAGO 9500 laser sensor with a tracking resolution as high as 5,000 DPI. The non-primary buttons can be assigned macro functions, and macro profiles can be switched on the fly. Leetgion comes with three macro profiles optimized for Starcraft player classes. Measuring 123 x 73 x 42 mm (LxWxH), the Hellion has a fixed weight of 105 g. It uses a wired USB connection to the host, the cable is sleeved. The mouse also features a true-color LED illumination, a color can be chosen form a pallet of 16.7 million colors in the software.

If that said Thermalright on the front, i would be interested and check out a bit more about it.

It dosent, it says LEETGION, a stupid pun name if i ever heard one, i would not buy this if it was cheaper and better than every other mouse on the market.

i play starcraft every day, and i hit random for my team selection.


this would be lame as hell to flip over and change profiles manually every round, wasting 10 seconds i could be playing.

Most people would do the opposite and not touch it with a barge pole if it said TT on the front, lets be realistic, they're not exactly known for good quality...

probably why there's a "custom" setting.

still wouldnt help, as you couldnt make all three profiles accessible without turning over the mouse.

On the subject of TT though, I was given one of their "gaming" mice, after two months the side button fell off and dropped inside the mouse... Considering I barely used the side button, this shows how good TT's gaming mice are...
Thank god for Logitech...

Why do all these companies insist on making their gaming peripherals look hideous and sound ridiculous? I'm pretty sure I had a Power Rangers communicator that looked like this once.

Whoa, since when did Thermalright start making things that don't cool your hardware? Interesting. Hopefully they come out with something a little less Starcraft 2 themed for those who don't play the game religiously.
