The Ventus Z is an ergonomic design mouse sporting a relatively smaller footprint than the larger Level 10M and is easily one of my Tt eSports sleekest mice to date. The top shell has the signature beehive mesh pattern with the Tt eSports logo underneath. Bold line split the Ventus Z segments apart with the buttons clearly defined with sharp angles.

User Experience & Conclusion

The Ventus design started out with a focus in comfort but has slowly matured in a style-focused product but still retains its roots in the ventilation aspect of the vents. Performance-wise, the Tt eSports Ventus Z is again a big leap compared to the previous Ventus offerings and its sleeker design does translate to a better gaming experience overall. Its shape contributes much to the overall performance and comfort improvement and we’d like to give a big shoutout to Tt eSports for improving on their gaming peripherals by so much lately.

Talking about the features of the Tt eSports Ventus Z, there’s not much in terms of advancements but for the entire Tt eSports line this is by and far the most advanced gaming mice they have to date in terms of performance, design and features. The decision to go for a more traditional, streamline look makes it more ideal for majority of gamers compared to its more eccentric predecessors. Button layout is well thought-out and makes it a great tool for competitive gaming with programmable buttons. Tt eSports still isn’t as polished as we’d like but we can say that in terms of customization and layout, its pretty mature.

Overall, the Tt eSports Ventus Z gaming mouse is effectively Tt eSports’ most advanced gaming mouse to date and it nails all the right check-boxes for gamers who prefer a highly customizable, high-performance gaming mouse for highly competitive use. Tracking is excellent, ergonomics is great and there’s just not a lot of bad things you can say about the Ventus Z unless you’re trypophobic.
