Device looks pretty standard: classic dark matte cover and a familiar button layout. However, the opposite impression appears in comparison with the same manipulator, but made in the bright body colors (red, yellow, white or dark green). Naturally, the presence of buttons for quick setting of sensor sensitivity immediately makes clear direction of the gaming device.

At the first activation Tt eSPORTS THERON pleased with the LED backlight, which is soft and unobtrusive. Quality performance of the device is at a high level: the defects, gaps, or other design flaws were not found. It may be noted only a small gap of scroll wheel to the sides and a small deflection of the sidewall under the main buttons at medium pressure. Naturally, during the operation of these little things are not visible, so the overall body rigidity has no objections. The weight is about 121 grams including additional weights and 98 grams without them.
