Inside the Ventus Z

After removing four screws, we were able to tear down the Ventus Z into three of the four major components. The top section has a large white insert for the backlit dragon, the middle still has a fourth piece attached to it, and it is much like the third component we see on the right.

To remove the left side panel of the mouse, we first had to remove this PCB. On top of it are the white TTC switches for the profile buttons, with red iB switches used on the page forward and page back buttons. The TTC switches are light in actuation but do offer a crisp click once pressed. As for the iB switches, they require more force to actuate, and the click is not as audible, but still present.

Now that we can remove the left side panel of the Ventus Z we can see what is behind it. First, we see more white TTC switches used for the copy and paste buttons. The red iB switch backs the high precision button, and the left main switch is hidden behind them.

Changing the angle to view closer to the center of the mouse, we find two more switches. Under the left click button is an Omron D2FC-F-7N(20M), taking the punishment of the most used switch. Sensing the motion of the scroll wheel, we find a heavily segmented ALPS assembly.

Found nearly on center is the Avago ADNS9500 laser sensor. Typically the DPI is capped at 6200 or 8200 DPI, but this time you have the ability to reach 11,000 DPI.

The MCU is found right in front of the large surface mount RGB LED. In the Ventus Z, Tt eSPORTS has opted to use the ST Microelectronics STM32F processor. This is a 32-bit ARM Cortex-M. Without a particular model, we cannot lock down the frequency if it is past 48MHz, but we do know there is 256K worth of onboard storage here.

Under the right click button is a matching twenty million click Omron switch. They both are medium force switches, but they do seem to report the loudest of the three. Backing the click function of the scroll wheel is a common black pad style switch.

Of course, this is just one of the 16.8 million color choices we can pick from, but the red looked good as it pulsed on and off by default. The battle dragon logo is easily viewable, and there is no issue seeing the red glow from the clear plastic scroll wheel.
