Tt eSports Level 10 M Gaming Mouse

You can customize Level 10 M using the original software. For the tests, we used v1.0.

All mouse controls except the left button are customizable: the A, B, C, D macro buttons, 4 stick directions as well as right and wheel buttons.

Using the menu on the right, you can record and assign macros as well as keystrokes from a small list, or applications. There are also two links to videos describing the peculiarities of Level 10 M.

Using the Performance tab, you can set scrolling and double-click speeds and even lift off. The DPI gauge to the left and cursor speed slider to the right adjust the same thing so this may be confusing. We recommend to only use the DPI gauge. The DPI range, by the way, is 50-8200, in 50-point steps.

The mouse supports 5 user profiles. For each, there are 7 illumination colors you can assign independently to 3 mouse LEDs. There is also the so-called Battle mode in which illumination brightness depends on the mouse movement speed.

The mouse has 128 KB of memory for profiles, so you can store DPI and illumination settings as well as macros to use with another computer.

Notifications can't be customized in this software, but they're not bothersome and only pop up in Windows (right in the center of the screen, though).


Speaking of how the mouse feels in hand, the smooth glossy plastic top doesn't feel as good as the popular soft-touch coating. While fine on the Dasher pad, if used on the bare table surface, the mouse cannot boast of good grip and the experience is not really comfortable. This is probably caused by the small size of the teflon feet.

In general, the layout of controls on the mouse top is convenient enough, partly because the left button is larger. The downside is that your fingers will most likely cover the DPI indicator on the right—a typical flaw Thermaltake has failed to avoid.

Side controls are not as convenient. The A and B macro buttons are situated conveniently enough, but you'll likely move the stick as well when trying to press either of them. By default, this will result in unexpected DPI switches. In turn, pressing the C and D macro buttons would require a second thumb, so these controls are not as useful.

The results of tuning the mouse with the hex key are not clearly visible but very noticeable. Thanks to this feature, you can fine-tune the device for your very hands. It's also great that the mouse hasn't shown any signs of wear even after prolonged use.

Final Thoughts

Tt eSports Level 10 M is surely an impressive product. The original and attractive design, tuning and customization capability, rich illumination, and four body colors surely cause a wow effect. At the same time, Level 10 M has certain usability flaws, especially in the side controls department. Oh, and the price starts from $93.


  • Gorgeous, attractive design.
  • Height and tilt tuning.
  • Feature-rich software.
  • No visible signs of wear after prolonged use.
  • Four body colors.


  • The glossy plastic (white and red variants only) doesn't feel as great as the soft-touch coating (green and black variants).
  • Bad grip without a mouse pad.
  • Inconvenient side controls.
  • The DPI indicator is obstructed by fingers.
