GIGABYTE FORCE M7 THOR gaming mouse review and testing

The application of the ancient heroes and gods names well known in the local or global cultures is quite popular practice among manufacturers. This allows not only to allocate a certain product from a number of others, but also to create for the buyers association with the special skills of a character. Special popularity has the Greek gods and heroes and Scandinavian gods. So Thor, Loki and Odin are even better known than Zeus, Ares and Hercules. Whatever it was, GIGABYTE company decided to use the popularity of one of the ancient gods in the new gaming mouse GIGABYTE FORCE M7 THOR.
