Introduction and Technical Specifications

Gigabyte Auros Thunder M7 Review

Introduction

Our recent forays into the Gigabyte gaming peripherals have largely been focussed upon their wireless offerings, and very good they have been too. Aorus are their main gaming arm, separate from the Aivia mice we know and love, and with the Aorus Thunder M7 there could be a new king on the block.

We know that the majority of users still prefer the freedom that comes from having a gaming mouse that doesn't require charging or have that small doubt in your head that it will go flat just at the crucial moment. Equally the explosion of online strategy games has meant that even the four or five buttons that we get on high-end rodents has proven to be too few to ensure the competitive edge.

Enter the Thunder M7 mouse, a high-end gaming mouse that has enough buttons to cover the most demanding of users requirements, and comes with some of the best software that we've seen.

Technical Specifications

To say the Thunder M7 is stuffed full of the best hardware is somewhat of an understatement. The Avago 9800 Laser sensor that dominates the market nearly as much as it enables you to dominate the competition finds a home, as well as the Omron switches that have proven to be nearly indestructible.

When you place that into a chassis that has 11 side buttons, custom lighting and feature-rich software it's a tempting package.

Why don't you just learn to use the mouse with your right hand? My brother is a lefty but he uses a right handed mouse all the time and has zero issues. You don't have to go total right. It's like a firearm.Quote

You can use the Mionix Avior 7000 or the Zowie FK1
Both are ambidextrous mice with the Pixart PMW3310DH http://www.pixart.com.tw/product_dat...classify2_id=3
Which is arguably one of the best sensors out there.

Thats just wrong. Why would you purposefully hurt his abilities to use a keyboard and mouse properly?Quote
