Thermaltake brings BMW to the 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.

Thermaltake General Manager Peter Pan had the following to say,
"At Thermaltake Group we have always been proud of being a pioneer in design, performance and innovation, we are very excited to launch the Level 10 M Gaming Mouse which is our latest collaboration with DesignworksUSA since the legendary Level 10 Chassis."
The specifications above don't even begin to cover the actual features available on this fully adjustable mouse, with almost every dimension of this mouse can be adjusted for the perfect fit to your hand.
Anyone that already owns a keyboard with LED lighting on it will be delighted to see the way that multicoloured LEDs shine through the grating visible on the top of the mouse and that is not all that grating can do. Take a look below for reassurance that no matter how long you are gaming or working for, your hand is not going to break out in a sweat.
Show off your style at work, LAN parties or just to match the theme of the machine you have at home; this BMW inspired mouse will definitely get you some attention.
