Thermaltake, BMW Designworks Make the Level 10 M Mouse

When one mentions Level 10 and Thermaltake, the first thing that comes to mind is the uniquely designed Level 10 GT tower case.

Now for CES 2012, Thermaltake subdivision Tt eSports has exclusively shared with Tom's Hardware a new product designed in collaboration with BMW's Designworks USA: the Level 10 M mouse.

The immediate standout feature of the Level 10 M mouse is that it features a hollowed-out design that allows for height and angle adjustment of the mouse body. By turning a screw on the top side of the mouse, users can adjust the size and shape of the mouse, changing how it fits under the palm.

The Level 10 M mouse also features a perforated palm surface to help alleviate some of those sweaty gaming sessions with passive airflow.

Release date and price have yet to be revealed, but we will to find out more this week when we go hands-on. Stay tuned.

    That thing looks a bit ugly. Besides, a $10 mouse will work just as well (as long as it's 1000dpi or so, 400dpi doesn't cut it when you turn the pointer speed up).

    i hat a 10$ one about a year ish ago, that i was using for over 3 years, it was the only mouse i liked after the intelli mouse 3 died... than i came across the razor naga, and got it for 50$ refurbished.

    the back button works like crap, you have to blow on it to make it work, but i don't use them at all (if it worked i might) but the 12 side buttons are so necessary for me that its not even funny.

    a cheap mouse is great, and expensive ones... at least with the naga, can be worth it too.

    Hmmm. Interested to find out what sensor this is going to use.

    I used a logitech G9 and I paid a pretty high price for it back when it was released. Saying that I find that you can get a good mouse if you are willing to pay for it. After having the features such as weights and On the fly senesitivty, I wont go back to an el'cheapo because I must be spoilt.

    I will look into this mouse becuase it kinda looks like a star trek ship or something. Maybe its more comfortable that in looks.

    Currently using an MX518 mouse, I wonder if this will be a good replacement..
    After all, the naming scheme would go with my Level 10 GT Snow Edition.

    I like the RAT line of mice. I have big hands, so an adjustable mouse would be nice. But I fear this will have the same dilemma as the Saitek RAT line; low durability, prone to breakage. For now, I'll stick to my Logitech G5. It seems they don't even sell the G5 anymore though, and I dislike the G500.

    i never got sweaty palms in my gaming sessions. but this mouse! wow impressive design. similar to the cyborg mouses. 10 years ago, i wouldn't even dream seeing such a mouse. I remember when i retired my ball tracking mouse in 209 for G5. I think my next mouse might be this one.
