The eSPORTS Black doesn't glide quite as effortlessly as some mice like the SteelSeries Xai but when we consider the price difference, this is quite understandable. The rough surface of the Dominator gaming surface doesn't help matters; a finely woven cloth surface would probably be more appropriate for this mouse. We did try out the Dominator with the Xai which we regard to be one of the smoothest gliding mice on the market and it was noticeably better.
Thermaltake have used a 4000 DPI Phillips centre for the eSPORTS Black mouse which is sure to whet the appetities of high-sensitivity gamers. This performed well throughout our tests, tracking accurately without any lapses. Unfortunately ThermalTake don't provide a configuration utility with the mouse which is something that we would expect to be included with any decent gaming mice these days. Instead we are only able to adjust sensitivity to one of four predefined levels – 400, 800, 2000 or 4000 DPI. For such a high-resolution mouse, we would usually expect at least eight predefined levels if not more.
