Thermaltake brings BMW to the mouse
Thermaltake’s eSPORTS brand has brought the BMW design team in to build the Level 10 M gaming mouse.
Our friends at Thermaltake recently sent us a fun new toy, the Tt eSPORTS Level 10 M adjustable gaming mouse. Yes, that's a lot of letters to describe a mouse, but I can assure you this mouse is unlike any you might have seen before.
Here are the key selling points:
- Air-through Ventilation
- 3D Steering
- Macro / Lighting software
- RGB LEDs in several places for customization
- Laser sensor up to 8300 DPI
The idea of the ventilation is to keep your sweaty hands a bit drier and cooler while the 3D steering allows the user to adjust the mouse surface in two different directions (one for height, one for horizontal angle) to find their preferred placement. The LEDs do allow for some interesting color combinations as long as you are okay with the preset colors that Tt eSPORTS has available in software.
Speaking of software, the application for customization is a little over exaggerated on the "extreme" design cues but enables the feature set you are looking for. Custom macros can be created and assigned to one of four buttons (A-D) with adjustments for timing, delay, etc. In addition, you can combine macros, lighting and DPI settings into one of five profiles that you can switch between easily with the thumb stick on the left side of the mouse.
Even better – all of this information (macros, profiles) is saved in the mouse after you disconnect it and take it to a different PC – no need to install the software to get the presets you configured before.
After a couple of us have used the mouse for a few days in the office, we put together the video below for you to see our thoughts and opinions as well as how the Level 10 M looks and feels. Even though it was designed in partnership with BMW, a current selling price of $95 on Newegg makes it hard to recommend the mouse to anyone but those of you that know for sure this is the mouse you want to use going forward.
if i can get for >$50, may be
if i can get for >$50, may be I’ll get it.
You should probably send this
You should probably send this to Jeremy after that L4D problem he was having 🙂
I have one of these mice.
I have one of these mice. And the button arraignment on left side leaves very little room for one’s thumb to grasp the mouse. Curiously this is about the only place where this mouse deviates from the original BMW design. Just goes to show what happens when people think they have to muck around with a perfectly good design.
