Gaming mice may be a rather new addition to PC peripherals (always compared to others) but that hasn't really stopped manufacturers from developing and releasing a huge number of models up until today from basic ones aimed at casual users and up to blazing fast and extremely accurate ones designed primarily for serious gamers and professionals. As mentioned in previous reviews however there aren't that many feature-rich models currently in the market that also combine blazing fast speeds with wireless connectivity and although i have to admit that i was never into using wireless keyboards and mice (mainly due to signal issues in the past) most people i know do. Tt eSPORTS is also rather new in this industry but in the short period they've been around they have released more gaming mice models than any other manufacturer to date and so they naturally possess a great deal of knowledge involving the development of such peripherals (they also know what sells). Today on our test bench we have a gaming peripheral that we never really thought they'd develop and we are talking about no other than their latest achievement the Level 10 M Hybrid Gaming Mouse.
“Challenge is the game” highlights the philosophy to bring out gamers’ addiction in gaming and the ambition of reaching to the extreme. Tt eSPORTS, a gaming obsessed division from Thermaltake, is uniting gamers from all over the world in a unique & fascinating eSPORTS culture, inherited the spirits of Thermaltake, is an energetic, powerful, bold and intelligent challenger who never says “no” to the extreme competition. We do not only provide gamers the ultimate gaming gears but also fulfills the passion to achieve the ultimate success. Thermaltake has been a well-known brand in the gaming & DIY market for PC Chassis, Coolers and Power Supplies PSU for many years. The brand personality of unique, aggressive, vivid and stylish makes Thermaltake an expert in creating exciting things and fascinating environment for gamers and enthusiasts. Tt eSPORTS inherited the brand personality with unique and creative design by observing users’ behaviors and requirements. The fan cooling design on Tt eSPORTS Challenger keyboard demonstrate the brand spirit. It is the worldwide first keyboard with fan cooling function that could dry your hand sweats and blow tension away during cut-throat competition.
As you will all see later on the Level 10 M Hybrid Gaming Mouse may almost be identical to its wired brother but it also shares many of its features including the same 8200 DPI laser sensor by Avago (ADNS-9800), 5 available profiles, aluminum base, industrial grade rubber coating, ergonomic 3D-steering axis (height and angle adjustable) and their patented air-through ventilation system. Of course Tt eSPORTS seems to have made certain sacrifices in order to implement 5.8GHz wireless connectivity so this time over the Level 10M Wireless has a total of 5 programmable buttons (by Omron) compared to the 7 of the wired version which in turn translated to a total of 9 macro keys instead of 11. However that's really a small price to pay if the device works as advertised (especially since the right side buttons of the wired version where way too soft for my taste) so let's see what the brand new Level 10 M Hybrid Gaming Mouse brings to the table.
