Tt eSPORTS Black Element Overview
The Tt eSPORTS Black Element Gaming Mouse is specifically designed for RTS and MMORPG gamers in mind. It comes equipped with a 6500 DPI Laser Engine, making it one of the fastest mice available. The entire mouse has a rubber coating making the perfect feel for a mouse, not to slipper, not to sticky. In total, the mouse has 9 customizable buttons, which can easily be modified using the included software. While it’s more dominated for a right-handed audience, it would still be possible for a left-handed person to use this mouse comfortably with its symmetrical design.
The left side of the mouse has an angled channel, which seems to make a perfect fit for your thumb. On this side you have your forward/backward mouse buttons as well as a macro button centered in between the two. The right side of the mouse has a very similar curvature to that of the left side, but only includes a single button. Both sides of the mouse have a white plastic rail edging down from about halfway up the mouse all the way to the back bottom. These “rails” are used for illuminating the mouse, which you can see later on in the review.
Another spot of the plastic is used for the Tt logo, found near the bottom of the mouse. It also is used for illumination of the mouse. Moving up the mouse are your standard left/right mouse buttons, which are identical. In between the buttons are two more buttons, set by default to change the DPI on the fly. The mouse wheel, also composed of the same white material as that of other parts of the mouse, is a nice contrast between soft and hard materials. It also has large grooves in it, presumably for better gripping abilities.
On the bottom of the mouse are four large mouse feet, which almost surround the entire edge of the mouse. Aside from product information and regulatory information you’ll also find a profile change button, and a plate near the back of the mouse. Lifting up this plate reveals the weighted system installed in this mouse.
In total there are five, 4.5g weights, making a total of 22.5g of weights that can be added or removed individually or as a whole unit.
Like other Tt eSPORTS products, the cable is braided and the connector is gold plated.
