Tt eSPORTS Talon V2 RGB Optical Gaming Mouse
With some wired gaming mice costing north of £70, PC Gaming
has become an expensive hobby for many. However, it doesn’t always have to be,
and the Talon V2 is an excellent example of high quality and performance and
Costing just £21.44 on Amazon this is one of the most
affordable gaming mice I have reviewed.
Equipped with a highly precise and accurate PIXART PMW-3050
optical sensor up to 3200 DPI, it offers superior tracking and responsiveness
during intense battle sessions. The TALON V2 comes with stunning 256 RGB colour
illumination amongst 7 preset LED colours that features 3 unique lighting
effect modes: pulse, spectrum running, and static, couple with an ergonomic,
ambidextrous design, to suit all playing styles for both left and right-handed
To ensure its affordable nature, this is not controlled by
software on your PC but the buttons set the DPI and colour options on your
mouse. The DPI button above the mouse wheel gives you choices of 500, 750,
1500, 2500, 3200.
Then pressing the mouse thumb button and the DPI button will
shift through the colour schemes.
As always with Thermaltake, there is lots of RGB, and this
has the Ttesports logo, mouse wheel and side vents all glow up in colours. The
RBG illumination is quite bright too.
The PIXART PMW-3050 sensor has an acceleration of 20G and a polling rate of 500HZ (2MS). There is no listed weight but using my scales the mouse itself weighs 92g making it around 7g heavier than the Dream Machine DM1.
Overall for the price, there is nothing to complain about here. If you are happy to live without software control and stick to pre-defined DPI levels, then this is just as good as mice twice its price.
M700 Extended Gaming Mouse Pad
To make the most of your mouse, a good mouse mat is
essential. These oversized cloth options have become particularly popular in
recent years, they have a cleaner overall aesthetic compared to your matt
sitting awkwardly to the right of your keyboard.
The M700 Extended delivers superior gaming performance for
both laser and optical mouse types; and provides low friction, high consistent
accuracy, and responsive tracking, whatever the game.
Measurements of this massive matt are 900mm x 400mm x 4mm
(35.43” x 15.75” x 0.16”) which makes the matt extend significant past the left
and right of my keyboard while leaving a large padded area in front of it. You
will never have to worry about your mouse not being on the matt!
This is quite a thick matt at 4mm and uses a rubberised base
to avoid slipping. The edges are sewn so it won’t start to fray over a period
of time, and it is also splash-proof allowing you to wipe it down in the event
of an accident
Unlike the Talon V2, this is more of a premium product. I
can’t find official pricing, but the cheapest I can find it online is £30,
which makes it a similar price to other big brand names.
Overall it is a superb mouse matt, and the quality is fantastic.
