Known for its coolers and heatsinks, Thermalright branched into the gaming market with the Leetgion brand (“elite legion” written in a fancy way). They first released an FPS mouse, the Hellion, and now the company enters the MMORPG territory with the El’Druin (the name definitely has an elvish flavor). It features 12 programmable buttons, 5,000 dpi of resolution, and two side disks that act like a second scrollwheel, and an analog stick from a console controller. We’ll first describe this unusual design and then proceed to testing its performance.
The El’Druin mouse has a body made of dark gray plastic, with exchangeable dorsal plates. It comes with four options: two plastic plates (one bigger, one smaller), and two rubberized plates (again, in two sizes).
The most distinctive features are the two side disks that replace the traditional side buttons. The left disk functions like the analog directional stick from a PS3 or X-Box 360 controller (up, down, left, right and middle click). The right disk acts like a secondary scrollwheel and can also be clicked on the middle. We will discuss these details on the Main Features section.
