Tt eSPORTS Level 10 M Hybrid Mouse - Perfecting an already perfect Mouse
The award winning Level 10 M Mouse, done in collaboration with BMW DesignworksUSA, comes back with a new refresh in the Level 10 M Hybrid Mouse. The M Hybrid Mouse is a hybrid wired and wireless mouse. It inherits the special characteristics of peripherals found in the Level 10 M series and of course it’s close sibling the M Mouse. The same use of the aluminum base to give the mouse a solid feel yet maintain good weight, innovative legacy 3D-steering axis movement which lets users adjust the height and angle at which the back cover comes into contact with their hand, and air-through ventilation system to keep hands cool are preserved. The M Hybrid Mouse’s most obvious new update is that it is a hybrid wired & wireless mouse which functions both wired and wirelessly via 5.8G technology. 5.8G was chosen as 2.4G has become quite common in consumer products, and is thereby more prone to interference on those signal bands. With 5.8G, the spectrum of signals available is much broader and able to avoid interference. The M Hybrid Mouse takes what was an otherwise perfect mouse and makes it even better!
