Designed by BMW’s prestigious DesignWorks USA studio (which is also known for airplane interiors, table flatwear and espresso machines), Thermaltake’s new Level 10 M gaming mouse is supposed to be the crowning achievement of their TT eSPORTS peripheral lineup. Indeed, it has a lot to prove since despite a stunning design, a price of $100 puts it well into the premium category and may turn off many prospective buyers.

While the cost of bringing a Level 10 home may be a bit extreme, Thermaltake and their friends over at BMW have incorporated several interesting features into this mouse. Not only does it look absolutely stunning but there’s also complete height and tilt adjustment and handy ventilation holes to ensure sweat buildup remains minimal. The all metal chassis has a soft-touch rubberized finish which is also a great addition and provides additional grip in fast-paced gaming marathons.

The TT eSPORTS Level 10 comes equipped with a 8200 DPI laser sensor but it is also quite large so anyone with smaller hands should beware. A weight customization is conspicuous by its absence. With that being said, at 185 grams, this is one of the heavier mice around so it may initially take some getting used to.

Thermaltake has included four levels of sensitivity which can be changed on the fly by using one of the many macro buttons or via the included software. As with all high end gaming mice, this one provides a full light show via the infinitely programmable LED lighting array.

With a unique profile, the Level 10 M is sure to stand out among its competitors but this attention to form over function has resulted in a lack of thumb support. Luckily, the mouse’s sides house plenty of macro keys. The left side has a small joystick for on the fly profile switching and two customizable macro buttons labeled as “A” and “B” which pull double duty and forward and back buttons within Windows. Meanwhile, the right edg has a pair of programmable macro buttons.

This is one great looking mouse but can it justify a price of $100 in a market that’s rife with competition? Make sure to watch our full review in the video above to find out.
