I was recently sent a Leetgion Hellion RTS gaming mouse, and I’ve enjoyed using it so much, that I decided to give it a review.
It was specifically designed for Starcraft II players by a sister company of the ultimate CPU cooling solutions co., Thermalright. They decided to get into the game of peripherals, and I’m sure glad they did.
With a price tag just shy of $80 US dollars, it’s on the pricey side, but if you’re a PC gamer looking for a super-responsive, lag-free RTS mouse, THIS is the one to get.
The Hellion is specifically designed for RTS gaming, but can also be used for everyday PC use, and has 4 pre-set profile settings (all with different-colored, corresponding LED lights), and a final fifth setting, which is completely customizable to your liking, and allows you to load any custom-made profile directly on to Hellion’s hardware. You’re also able to customize EACH profile setting through the Hellion Configuration software, if you so desire.
The pre-set profiles are as follows:
Setting 1 – Default – Glows red
Setting 2 – Terran – Glows blue
Setting 3 – Zerg – Glows Purple
Setting 4 – Protoss – Glows yellow
Setting 5 – Custom – Glows green
It also has seven adjustable DPI levels which range from 100 to 5000 DPI.
And it’s got mechanical buttons. I LOVE MECHANICAL BUTTONS. They feel absolutely flawless and deliberate.
I must say… I’ve never really had a ‘luxury’ mouse before, so this is a first for me, but this one is amazing. The feel of the mouse is sleek, soft, and smooth, and…just…all around PERFECT. I would say my hands are AVERAGE sized, and the fit and feel of my hand resting on it is pure bliss.
Seriously. I wouldn’t lie to you.
Even the packaging shouts luxury.
It arrived to me wistfully placed inside what appears to be a Pandora’s Box of eye-catching, clean, yet sophisticated infold.
Whether you’re a serious PC gamer looking to up your game and some of your hardware, or someone who spends a lot of time on your computer for work or play — THIS is a mouse everyone can appreciate and feel like a king–or queen— while using.
