Tt eSports Black FP might look like any ordinary gaming mouse but it isn’t, the FP here is the abbreviation for “Finger Print”.
Unlike many mice in the market with soft-touch material, the Tt eSports Black FP uses tough plastic with matte surface so it’s easy to clean, not a dust magnet and does not turn sticky through time.
The Black FP however has a rather high front so while it works fine for palm users in general, it may not work that well for claw users.
As for the sensor it uses the AVAGO 9500 that allows up to 5700 DPI for increased accuracy and precision while the buttons are of high-quality OMRON switches with a 5 million click lifecycle.
Notice the rectangular piece on the left side that’s towards the front? That’s the finger print sensor.
The Fingerprint sensor is the latest biometric sensor with “Iron Veil” technology by Synaptics, it uses the state-of-the-art National Security Agency (NSA) approved 256-bit advanced encryption standard.
That aside, if you look at the image above you’ll see that the Black FP lacks the curve for grip.
As for lighting- the Black FP is not an RGB mouse but you do get profile / speed indicator and the backlit logo and scroll wheel.
Here’s what it looks like on the under side, I do wish they have bigger mouse feet towards the front.
What’s neat about the Tt eSports Black FP is that it comes with weight management system.
Lastly we have the braided cables, nothing out of the ordinary here.
Here are the specs as seen from the official product page.
The mouse works great out of the box and works even better with the software installed. I’m glad to see that Tt has improved the user interface.
The fingerprint sensor technology works great too, I had no hiccups configuring the password for my Windows login.
For those who want to use it for other logins, like say for games and websites, the Black FP requires an additional software to get it up and running.
Now this is the downside of the whole thing. First the manual asks users to download software from the website.
The problem is that the menu on the website ends at ‘SOFTWARE’ but there’s actually more, a little further down is the ‘DOWNLOAD’ area. Even so, the website doesn’t help when it does not indicate which software is for what purpose.
So basically the main software is the COMMAND CENTER while the additional software for more advanced configuration for fingerprint access is the SECURITY CENTER.
Software and drivers aside, I must point out that this is a RIGHT HANDED user mouse even though it’s ambidextrous in shape. As for the shape, I like how the mouse feels and how the button responds but what I didn’t like is that it lacks the curve for a good grip. Lastly of course would be the mouse feet – I very much prefer to have a larger piece at the front, there’s plenty of room for it.
Lastly, the Tt eSports Black FP is quite big so small handed persons like myself may find it a little difficult to use.
The Tt eSports Black FP Gaming Mouse retails at RM 350 (including GST) and it’s a great mouse. I like it that it has fingerprint sensor for convenient logins and it has overall great build, response and it has weight management. It’s not perfect but it’s one of the better mice around, especially when you consider it has high-tech security function.
