Software & Testing
For our testing, we paired the Level 20 RGB Extended Mouse Pad with a Level 20 RGB Mechanical Gaming keyboard and a Level 20 RGB Gaming mouse. We had a 3-hour gaming session playing one of my favorite FPS games, CS: Go and during my testing the mouse pad performed exceptionally well. Throughout my entire gaming session, I had zero tracking issues and the mouse glided effortlessly across the surface. Even though I went with the larger keyboard, I still had more than enough room to navigate the mouse and not once did I run off the mat. I was equally impressed with how comfortable the cloth surface was on my hand/wrist and could easily have played another 3 hours with no discomfort.
Now that we have tested the Level 20 RGB mouse pad, let’s see how we can configure its RGB lighting with Thermaltake iTake software. If you don’t already have iTake installed, you can download the TT iTake Engine from www.thermaltake.com.
Once you run Thermaltake iTake, it will automatically detect the Level 20 RGB Extended Mouse pad and bring you to the lighting configuration tab. On the lighting tab you can select any one of the following presets:
- Static – Set all keys to a single selected color
- Pulse – Fades a single color in and out
- Blink – Blinks all the keys a random or single color
- RGB Spectrum – Cycles through various colors
- Raindrops – Key randomly light up to a configured a single color or a random color
- Music Mode – Have the boarder react to music/sounds
- Temp. – The LEDs changes based on the temperature of your PC
Once you have selected your RGB preset, you can further configure it by changing its color, speed, and/or brightness.
