Thermaltake forays into gaming peripheral market

Cebit 2010:
A nice step indeed


Although
Thermaltake is not really a name you’d associate with gaming peripherals, the company’s latest move promises to change that. On Cebit 2010, the company decided to show off their new gaming peripheral product line called Tt Esports.

The high end keyboard will come with red caps in case you want to accent W, S, A, D and arrow keys, which is pretty nice. The keys are backlit with the color of choice.

The mouse felt great, it literally fit like a glove and was pretty comfortable but the design seems somewhat unimaginative.

We must admit that the small cooling fan is a really nice touch and, as you can see, you can place it on either side of the keyboard and remedy sweaty hands. We played with it for a while and we found it to be just enough, as you won’t actually feel it blow on your hand but rather notice just the absence of sweat.

If you're moving your gear or just don't want to lose the fan, Thermaltake has a nice little compartment reserved for it.

Thermaltake's control panel looks pretty cool.

The company is launching the two keyboards and the mouse sometime around April, and will follow up with the rest of the line promptly. The pricing will go from $49 for lower-end keyboard and $69 for the mid-range one up to $89 for the high-end keyboard. The mouse will be priced at about $39.

Not bad for a first try, eh?
