Usage & Final Thoughts
I have been using the Level 10M Advanced as my main mouse for a couple of weeks now and I have to say I really like it. Before switching over I was actually using the Level 10M Hybrid, which I am a huge fan of. Since both mice are very similar it was not hard to get used to the Level 10M Advanced at all. The nice new addition to the Level 10M Advanced is the extended baseplate, it gives a much more comfortable feel to the mouse. I also feel that this mouse glides across my gaming surface much better.
The Avago 9800 16000 DPI sensor is great and you can see why Tt eSPORTS as well as many other manufactures use it. With DPI a DPI level that goes up to 16000 and fine-tuning in increments of 100 you can really pick the best DPI level for the game that you are playing. With that through the software you can configure 4 preset DPI levels that can easily be cycled through, even when you are in game. The laser sensor seemed to track well on many different surfaces, not just my gaming surface.
There are more than enough buttons on this mouse for most gamers, and with the 5-axis button you have even more programmable options. The software allows you to completely reprogram the mouse, setup macros, and much more. There are 5 different profiles that you can set up that are saved to the mouse itself. While I like the button layout on the Level 10M Advanced I do feel like the “A” button on the left side of the mouse is really hard to reach (at least for me). It would have been cool to see the A and B buttons stacked.
Another thing that Tt eSPORTS has done is add RGB lighting to the mouse. So now you have 3 different lighting zones with RGB lighting. All of the zones can be controlled independently and you can set up some effects like pulsing and a color switch mode which Tt eSPORTS calls spectrum running.
Besides the distance of the “A” button the only other thing I did not like about the Level 10M Advanced was that they did not use metal on the baseplate like the previous Level 10 and Level 10M Hybrid. Metal of course makes the mouse more durable and added some nice weight to the mouse, which I was a big fan of.
Right now you can pick up the Level 10M Advanced at our favorite online retailer for $69.99. That price seems fair considering the features you are getting with this mouse. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Tt eSPORTS Level 10M Advanced Gaming Mouse a 9 out of 10 score.
