SteelSeries Diablo III Mouse and Headset Review
Published: 23rd December 2011 | Source: SteelSeries | Price: |
The Diablo Mouse uses the same SteelSeries Engine software as the headset. A small touch but when so many companies provide different applications it's nice to have it all under one roof. The interface is drag and drop so it's very easy to bind the buttons to whatever action you design, and the software has a macro editor built in for those complex strings.
As well as per exe profiles one cool feature is the button count, which not only can count your button presses per session, but keeps a log of all your clicks throughout its lifespan. We imagine after a month or two this can give some startling numbers if, like us, you spend your lives in front of your rig.
Where would we be without lighting. Both the Diablo Mouse and Headset glow a demonic red that's obviously difficult to photograph. The image at the top of these pages is the lighting on the mouse and in real-life it's a more uniform and deeper red than even that shows.
On the mouse the lighting is around the scroll-wheel and where your palm sits. Just enough to look great without being distracting. For those of you wondering, blood red is the only colour available. But with Diablo III why would you want any other?
The headset is identically lit with a 'circle of hell' effect around the earpieces and the III logo on the hinges lights up beautifully too. This is very bright indeed on it's highest setting. You'll certainly stand out.
