SteelSeries Diablo III Mouse and Headset Review

Headset Continued

The ear-pieces look about as demonic as possible without moving beyond stylish and into tacky territory. Around the edge is a ring of red that lights up, which we'll see in a bit, and the III part of the Diablo logo also lights up. It's nice to see that it looks good 'unplugged' as well. There is no doubt it has got evil covered.

Connectivity is a fairly long double-braided USB cable with the normal in-line remote we're used to from the V2 design. Should this prove too short for your needs SteelSeries provide a lengthy extension cable.

One touch that we like is how the SteelSeries Engine software has a Diablo III skin, and the ability to link profiles to exe's. It's also nice that you can control the lighting and even, if the mood takes you, have the red glow pulsating at various speeds to instil fear into your competitors.

Two elements of quality, but copyright Blizzard fills the bill. I find it strange that accesories are available before the game. This happens often?Quote

Yes it's a regular occurrence. Don't forget that adding branding to a product is a lot easier than creating and bug-testing a game. Additionally, Blizzard are known for releasing their products late. Diablo III isn't late yet, but StarCraft II took its time.Quote

I have been tempted to buy a second mouse to switch over too, something simple like this for Diablo 3, rather than using my RAT7 which i do a lot of FPS on.

I have been tossing up between the Diablo 3 mouse and the Sensei, i remember Toms review of the Sensei was fantastic so i might go with that...Quote
