Thermaltake’s taking great advantage of CES to roll-out a lot of product, and it’s of no surprise that its eSPORT lineup has seen a lot of love. On the mouse side, the company announced four models; three of which are variants of pre-existing models, the other being brand-new. Let’s start with that one, shall we?
The most noticeable feature of Tt’s VENTUS is its large honeycomb-inspired cutout on the palmrest. While part of this is to help move air and keep the area cool, Tt doesn’t discredit its role for “enhanced styling”. This mouse includes a 5700 DPI sensor and an ambidextrous design – lefties don’t get screwed with this one.
For something a little different, Tt also announced a wireless – err… hybrid – version of its aggressive-looking Level 10 M. That’s right – wireless or wired, it’s possible with this mouse (although neither stock image we were given had a noticeable port for the cable). Tt doesn’t give battery-life estimates, but those will no doubt come once the product page launches. Like the original version, this one includes an 8200 DPI sensor and 9 macro keys.
While glossy peripherals are not usually heavily sought-after, there’s no doubt that some people would prefer them due to their enhanced aesthetics. Well, on the mouse front Tt is offering two new editions of its BLACK; “Snow Edition” (white with blue accents), and “Onyx” ( pitch black with red accents). Both of these mice will retail for $49.99.
No release dates have been announced, but we’d definitely expect to see all of these in stores this quarter.
