Thermaltake enhances its already ridiculous palm cooling gaming mouse

first_imgHere at Geek we love gadgets that include the ability to tweak, and Thermaltake is the latest company to appear on our radar for their ability to add a ridiculous amount of features to the humble mouse.Say hello to the Thermaltake Level 10 M Advanced gaming mouse. To be clear, this is an enhanced version of the existing Level 10 M mouse, which already had an eye-watering number of options to tweak. The Advanced version just goes a step further.It’s not the prettiest mouse to look at, but that doesn’t really matter for a device spending most of its time covered by your hand. And if you’re a heavy gamer, it’s certainly worth considering spending the $69.99 required to get this mouse on to your desk. Here’s a rundown of its standout features:16,000 DPI Avago 9800 laser sensor10 buttons, including a 5-axis button2D steering axis system50 million Omron switchesARM Cortex-M0 32-bit microcontroller and 64KB of flash memoryLED DPI Indicator16.8 million color RGB illumination systemAerodynamically engineered air-through palm ventilation systemThe DPI is selectable, with on-the-fly adjustments from 400 DPI right up to the 16,000 DPI maximum using that 5-axis button. There’s also a 100 DPI fine-tuning option available. So you can dynamically adjust the DPI while playing a game to suit the situation. Combined with the Avago 9800 laser (that has 1, 2, 4, and 8ms polling rates), you can take full advantage of the accuracy on your surface of choice, and those Omron switches ensure the buttons won’t stop working over the mouse’s lifetime. Next we come on to the body of the mouse. The 2D steering axis means you can adjust the angle of the mouse to better sit in your palm making for a more comfortable experience. Then, to stop the issue of a sweaty hand, Thermaltake has embedded a palm ventilation system, which allows cool air to flow up through a honeycomb grill and over your palm while you play. There’s also a soft-touch finish to the plastic surfaces for additional holding comfort and grip.The Level 10 M Advanced ships with its own configuration software allowing you not only to play with the 16.8 million color RGB illumination system, but to also tweak and store up to 5 different profiles, including DPI settings, lighting configurations, and macro setups.An ugly mouse? Yes. A potential hardcore gamer’s dream mouse? Quite possibly. Let us know what you think of it if you pick one up. Reviews of the Level 10 M are mixed on Amazon, does the Advanced version fix all the issues? <>last_img
