SteelSeries Diablo III Mouse and Headset Review

Mouse Up Close

The Diablo Mouse beautifully apes the headset with the Diablo 3 logo writ large on the packaging. We're so used to the slate and white packaging on SteelSeries products that this really grabs your attention.

Flipping over the magnetic front flap we find the Tyrael concept artwork alongside the ever-handy cutout that allows you to test the mouse prior to purchase. With mice being plug-and-play hardware the accessories are limited to the standard quick-start guide and SteelSeries sticker.

The mouse itself has the same bodyshell as the ultra-comfortable Kai and Sensei designs. The whole thing is coated with a soft, grippy rubberised affair that ensures you maintain full control under even the most demanding circumstances. As well as the coating the mouse has the same artwork that we saw on the headband of the Diablo headset. It looks great even when it's off.

As an ambidextrous mouse we have buttons on both sides, all customisable in the software. The scroll-wheel falls onto the notchy side of scroll-wheels, making sure you can switch between weapons, or whatever else you desire, with accuracy. Behind the scroll-wheel is a button to toggle between two DPI profiles and the LED indicates if it's on or off.

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
