ThunderX3 TM50 By Aerocool Mouse Review (w/ TMP40 Mousemat)

Rating: 9.0.

In an increasingly saturated peripheral market, it can be hard for a new manufacturer to stand out and get some attention. ThunderX3, a subsidiary of Aerocool, are hoping that their TM50 mouse – complete with an Avago 3310 optical sensor, RGB lighting and an aluminium base – will be able to compete with established brands like Corsair and Razer. The TM50 may sound like a fairly typical mouse on paper, but ThunderX3 do have a trick up their sleeve – the mouse costs just £29.90.

For the features on offer, £29.90 looks like a great price for the ThunderX3 TM50. Most flagship mice cost at least £50 – just look at the TT eSports Level 10M Advanced, the Corsair M65 Pro and the Razer Diamondback Chroma. In most cases we would actually consider a mouse priced at £30 to be a ‘budget offering’, but considering the on-paper specifications of the TM50 we find it hard to call it a ‘budget’ mouse. In this review we will be looking to see if any compromises have been made to achieve this low price-point, or if the TM50 is really as good as it looks.
