Deciding on a mouse can be an overwhelming process with literally hundreds to choose from as far as gaming mice alone. Seeing as how the mouse and keyboard are the only two things you interact with while on the computer, having the right mouse is very important. Selecting the right mouse for you can be a daunting task, but knowing where to start is even harder. There are still quite a few entry level mice on the market, and Gigabyte has kindly send over their version, the Force M7 Thor. Let’s take a look at this affordable piece of hardware and see how it holds up.

The packaging for this mouse is surprisingly simple compared to what I am used to. It is a simple cardboard display with a window on the front showing off the product. Inside we can see the mouse and most of its features without even taking it out of the box.
On one side of the box there is a QR code along with some detailed product specifications. On the other side of the box you can find a shorter, simpler list of specifications in quite a few different languages. There is no doubt whose product this is, as the name Gigabyte only appears on every surface. On the bottom you can find your important product information like model number, serial number, and UPC code. There is also a small message about being compatible with only Windows XP, Vista, and 7. Sorry Mac users, this mouse has two buttons.
Once opened, we can find the mouse nestled safely in a smaller plastic container for transport with the wire tucked safely behind and out of sight.
