Tt eSPORTS Level 10 M Advanced Gaming Mouse Review

Final Thoughts

 

The Level 10 M Advanced has shed some of its weight because this design does do away with the thick metal base of the predecessors, but the stability was significantly increased at the same time. Using a relaxed grip most of the time, the heel of the mouse was set to its lowest setting, allowing fingers to reach the buttons better. Our medium sized hands needed every advantage we could get, as this is a large mouse which would suit larger-handed users much better. When it came to switching out grip style, we did end up raising the back end and found it helped quite a bit with orienting your hand in the right location to take the best advantage of what the Level 10 M Advanced has to offer.

 

We also like that the 5-axis button was reduced in size, as we did not find ourselves accidentally swapping profiles or DPI levels when using the other two buttons on the left side. We also enjoyed the feel of the right side finger rest that has been added in, this time, that along with the new texture offered on the surfaces, gripping, lifting, and all movements felt great in our hands. We also like the aesthetics offered this time, with a more traditional color theme of charcoal gray and black, and with the multi-zone RGB LED lighting; it does spruce up an old idea to a new level.

 

 

The sensor and its 16,000 DPI are things you have to work into. We typically use a few different pads with each mouse we test, and using smooth pads did leave us with some difficulty at higher DPI levels. We found our lines to be smoothed out, rather than reading the fine movements, but once we put the Dasher 2016 down, we did find a sweet spot. When creeping up to that maximum DPI, the Dasher was easier for this sensor to read, and our movements felt more accurate and precise. While we do not doubt that many users out there can use this range of DPI and be successful while gaming, but our comfort zone left us moving between 5600 and 7000 DPI most of the time.

 

Everything about the design is solid, and confirming what we could, we saw nothing but top tier components and workmanship in this design. Once you add in the software, the sky is the limit. Not only are the LED options and modes worth playing around with and admiring, with ten buttons, five profiles, fifty potential commands under one hand, but the accompanying software also offers the utmost in adjustments and control.

 

Where most will see this design and want it just because of the RGB LED aspect, Thermaltake has done a great job in redesigning what we knew as the Level 10 M mouse. With their latest Level 10 M Advanced, they removed unneeded heft, added stabilization, and better hand support all around. The adjustable heel in conjunction with a slight tilt, delivering a very ergonomic feel, and all of this while still keeping their air pass-through design, left us gaming for ours with no discomfort to speak of. While the Level 10M Advanced is the most feature rich of the bunch, with just minor tweaks to material choices, Tt eSPORTS is also able to offer these at a very affordable price point. At just $69.99, Thermaltake has a great product to offer and is a mouse that we want to find a permanent home for, to replace one of our aging favorites from days gone by.
