Thermaltake Level 10M Gaming Mouse
Full Disclosure: Thermaltake provided the product sample used in this article.
Gamers drive the desktop computer industry. It's true, just like luxury and performance cars drive the rest of the automotive market. Performance and feature innovations that appear first on the likes of Ferrari and Lexus trickle down to lower end cars after their development has been subsidized by the purchasers of the higher end cars. A similar phenomenon exists in the computer industry. It's most noticeable with video cards, but it affects other items as well-- look at how computer cases have advanced in the past few years.
Microsoft introduced the first mouse that was described as "high resolution" or "high DPI", with an amazing for the time 400 dot-per-inch sensor. With the standard VGA monitor of the day boasting only 640x480 pixels, an inch and a half of movement would send your pointing sweeping the width of your desktop. The Level 10M mouse has a minimum resolution of 800DPI and goes all the way up to 8,200DPI, useful if you have the reflexes of a cat on crack or a multi-monitor gaming setup. And there are the other features expected in a "gaming mouse", like programmable macros and lighting effects and some degree of physical adjustability.
I'll test this mouse by using it in both daily tasks and a variety of games to see how it compares with my current pointing devices...
