Thermaltake Level 10 M Gaming Mouse
« on: December 20, 2012, 08:31:01 pm »

Today I will be taking the time to take a look at the Thermaltake eSPORTS Level 10 M Gaming Mouse. This is the eSPORTS divisions look into a high end gaming mouse and with an MSRP of $100 USD lets hope it can deliver, especially with a name like BMW being thrown around.

Unboxing the Beast











As you can see there is a nice stylish strain relief at the end of the aluminum frame of the mouse.





The Level 10 M comes with a Tt eSPORTS branded carrying case with room for the adjustment tool as well as the mouse and cord. Along with the install disk, warranty policy, 3 description cards for each of the different color Level 10 M's offered.

A Closer Look

After swapping my old Thermaltake eSports Theron out for the Level 10 M I was astounded by how much cooler the mouse felt under normal day to day use. So much so I decided to give it a nice long work out by running through Half Life 2 again. The 185-gram weight may be my favorite part. I despise light weight mice and this one was about perfect for me.



The open air design will definitely get peoples attention.





Don't like the symmetrical feel of the mouse? Well its adjustable up to 5 degrees left or right as well as up and down.



You can see the lit Thermaltake eSPORTS logo through the honeycomb of the upper plastic. The honeycomb is part of what keeps this mouse so cool under heavy gaming.



The gold plated USB 2.0 port is protected by an attractive dust cap also features the eSPORTS logo.

Software

Once I started looking into the software I was instantly at home. It is very similar to that available in other eSports products.





The start up page give the user the ability to activate battle mode which is a fun lanparty feature. Kick it on and as you click faster the colored LED's change. You also have access to the the 5 different profiles stored on the mouses internal 128kb memory.



When you select the light options tab you have 7 different color choices to chose from. For some reason it only changes 3 of the LED's leaving the level indicator red at all times. While not a big issue it seems out of place with other colors selected.





Under the performance tab you can change the X and Y sensitivity independently all the way up to 8200 DPI which seems a bit excessive. The option is there, but I ended up sticking to around 6000DPI with a 250Hz polling rate.



Here we have the standard macro key setup. As you can see mine is blank...turns out when you forget to save them to the mouse and reinstall Windows they go away. Seems like that would have been entirely my fault and not one of the mouse or software.



Ah here is the option to import or export the macro's onto the mouses onboard 128kb of memory.

Other Items

Some of the eagle eyed viewers may have noticed the other Thermaltake product in all of my photo's. I also received the Tt eSPORTS Ladon gaming mouse pad. What an excellent product.





As you can see the box has a feel before you buy window. If you are checking this product out in a local store this is a nice feature.



The close nit fabric is an optimal surface for any type of mouse and is specifically designed for MMORPG and RTS gamers.



It features a rubberized bottom that prevents the pad from sliding.

Final Thoughts

The Thermaltake eSPORTS Level 10 M continues the upward slope with Thermaltake's competitive gaming division. This products customizations allow you to really match your mouse to your setup. All this while being comfortable for long time usage. Thermaltake hit this one out of the ballpark. The Ladon mouse pad only makes the entire experience better.

Looks quite nice (except that it's green :P), what are the side buttons like?

One thing I would say, Saitek got it right when they built the adjustment tool of the RAT9 in to the mouse, having to go digging for it isn't fun.

I rather like the green asked for it specifically since it was different. The side buttons have aggood smooth click to them and the 4 way is fully programmable. Strangely useful even with FPS's.

As for the tool I have it in its bag next to the desk amid if I loose that one I have like 15 sets of those tools.
