Thermaltake released the Tt eSports Black mouse way back in 2010 and we were big fans of it even then, but times change and the world of peripherals has certainly moved on since. So what has Thermtaltake done to make this new version, the Tt eSports Black FP different from its predecessor?
While the shell and name may look familiar, what is under the hood is not. The laser sensor has been upgraded to an AVAGO 9500, the buttons are now built with long-life OMRON switches, but the big change is the new security measure built in to the left hand panel: a finger print scanner.
The idea behind the scanner is that you can use this mouse to unlock your PC and login to websites, instead of inputting a password. All fingerprint data is encrypted to 256bit, so should be near impossible to crack and the scanner is FIDO UAF certified so you know it is accurate.
