Closer Look: Gigabyte Force M7 Thor Laser Gaming Mouse

At first glance you can’t help but notice the subtle yet beautiful graphics on the palm of the Force M7 Thor.  The bold font face and the outstretching lightning bolts are in a beautiful black gloss that contrasts well with the matte black finish.

The DPI switch is the other very dominant feature on the top of the mouse.  It is a gloss black, and the blue LED indicator lights are vibrant yet not too overpowering.  The lights look really great in a dark environment, and are bright enough to be seen well in daylight hours as well.

On the left side of the mouse you will see two programmable thumb buttons.  Once again they are made of the shiny black plastic.  The contrast between the plastic buttons and rubberized grip sides lets your hand settle nicely on the buttons and reduces the chances of missing a click.  The rubber sides offer superior grip, but there is one downfall.  The sides attract fingerprints very easily and are very noticeable.

The right side of the mouse is empty.  There are no pinky button or thumb buttons for left handed gamers.  If you are left handed, the mouse will work for you, but the thumb buttons will be inaccessible.  The black rubber side grip is present on the right as well, and attracts just as many fingerprints as the other side.

Lastly, we have the bottom of the mouse.  It sports a very nice 6,000 dpi laser that should suit even the most hardcore enthusiast.  In addition to this you have three large gaming grade feet pads.  The pads offer an extremely smooth experience, free from any hitches or hiccups in both daily use and gaming sessions.

    Comparing the scores given with the reviewers comments of praise seems to be quite different from what I expected. I think the scores might be more accurate assessment, but don’t correspond to verbal praise.
    In my experience a number rating system is usually not as accurate as personal descriptive rating. For example: the Air Force performance rating was from 1 to 9 each year. No one got less than an 8, (unless they were getting ready to boot you), most got a nine or it was next to impossible to get promoted otherwise. So the descriptive narratives is where the reporting officials would make you shine above others who did the same job as you.
    How did the rating system becomes so bad I do not know. A “5” was suppose to be your normal Joe. 6 being better, 7 even better, 8 excellent, 9 outstanding. As I said most got 9 and so all became outstanding. To give an 8 the person must have did something that couldn’t be whitewashed or hidden from public(military review). If given a 7 you were not even doing your job so you were not wanted and was a way to keep you from getting promoted or able to re-enlist. 1 through 6 never existed unless you really pissed off your reporting supervisor or his supervisor.
    My hardest job was being forced to write a performance review on someone I never met and have only the people who have work with them and their views of his/her work. And any other paper trails available to read.
    What am I saying? That verbal reviews are more descriptive than numbers and I find more useful. Number ratings can be more accurate if used properly. Both if use, should coincide. Don’t give high praise then give a low number rating. It looks stupid.

    Thanks for your input Jamie! I understand your thoughts, however I personally do not see an 8.3 overall score being a “low number rating.” I think anything over an 8 is very, very good! The mouse IS very good, and I have used it a lot. Is it better than more expensive, high quality built gaming mice? Absolutely not. However given its price point, it is an excellent value for a very capable gaming mouse. Thanks again, and your input is noted on the number scale :)
