Hands-on Preview: BMW and Thermaltake's Level 10 M Mouse

Our international team in Germany has secured an exclusive test for the Level 10 M gaming mouse. As a joint project between BMW subsidiary Designworks USA and Tt eSPORTS (Thermaltake), the Level 10 M gaming mouse shares the same family heritage as the Level 10 PC case.

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. We've gone hands-on, literally, and we have even put to test the claim that the mouse's design will keep you hand cooler through the use of temperature measurement throughout 30+ minute gaming sessions.

Stay tuned for our review coming soon!

  • Oh wow! It'll keep my hands dry through epic 30+ minute gaming marathons! Shut up and take my money!

    "man I gamed like crazy this weekend; probably played for 30, maybe even 45 minutes"

    As someone who will play for 12-36 hours in a sitting, i have never known that sweaty hands was an issue; are people resting their entire hand, with arm weight, on the mouse?

    Read up on ergonomics gaming brothers, lest your wrists pay the price.

    As an aside, i'm still interested in the review, as no mouse to date has matched my aging g5.

    Are those red things from behind heatpipes? . This looks fucking ridiculous and I've never had y hands sweat from using a mouse. There will be a ridiculous price to match aswell I'm sure.

    oh yey BMW ... guess its a big deal for the Americas .... its full of em here ... boring gas guzzlers...

    This goes against Thermaltakes gaudy design principles. This mouse is like a RAT only that its slighty more mouse looking then transformer looking.
    Where is the red and black look with see through plate and fan sitting infront of the mouse?
