Thermaltake Tricks Out Level 10 M Advanced Mouse With Palm Ventilation, 5-Axis Button, RGB

Thermaltake is out with a new gaming mouse, specifically in its Level 10 M series. In fact, the company said that its new Level 10 M Advanced mouse is an enhanced version of the first Level 10 M model.

The mouse features ten buttons (this includes a five-axis button that you can depress as well as move in four directions) and is powered by a 32-bit ARM-based microcontroller with 64 KB of flash memory. It utilizes an Avago 9800 laser sensor to deliver up to 16,000 DPI, and you can store up to four different DPI settings so you can toggle through the various DPI levels in the middle of a game. It also includes Omron switches, which promise a lifespan of up to 50 million clicks.

Keeping with tradition, the Level 10 M Advanced model sports the same ventilation system as its predecessors. Thermaltake placed a honeycomb-like pattern below the left mouse button that’s supposed to bring in air to keep your palm cool while you play. It also has a “2D-Steering Axis” system that allows you to adjust the height of the spring (by 5 mm) that connects the top part of the mouse to the base

RGB lighting is also part of the mouse, and it illuminates three specific zones: a small outline on the left mouse button, the scroll wheel, and an emblem underneath the honeycomb ventilation. You can have different colors for each zone and apply static, pulse and spectrum lighting patterns. You can change its various settings with Thermaltake’s software, the Tt eSports Command Center.

The company didn’t provide a release date for the mouse. However, when it does come out, you can buy it for $69.99.

    Very strange looking mouse.

    I guess as long as it works well who cares what it looks like.

    Does it vibrate?

    Never have I seen such an ugly mouse in my life...
    I have to say thermaltake make some good fans and cases, but their other peripherals are just sheer garbage....

    Cripes, that is some tacky junk. It looks like it belongs in a bad late 90's hacker movie. They didn't bother to break any of the edge noticeably, the SHCS could be recessed further and capped over so that the edges of it's hole doesn't dig in, put in through the other side, or switched to black and brought closer to the surface so that it isn't quite so glaringly obvious. The color combo, both of the parts and the lights, are terrible. Finger wing doesn't match, and looks like a print magnet. Just awful.

    Agreed worn posters saying this thing is ugly as hell.

    I have their Core v51 case and love it. I have multiple of their Luna LED fans and love them.

    But man they should have not attempted to build a mouse....
