SteelSeries Diablo III Gaming Mouse Review

In anticipation of Blizzard’s next installment to one of the biggest RPG to hit the gaming world, SteelSeries brings us the Diablo III gaming mouse and they also sent us one of their Dota 2 gamepads to use it with.

The mouse comes in a beautifully packaged Diablo III inspired box. There’s a concept artwork of Archangel Tyrael on the magnetic flap of the box. I like how SteelSeries has a cutout in the shape of the mouse for you to be able to test the size of the mouse. Inside the box you’ll see the unit, catalog, quick-start guide and a sticker.

The mouse is shaped like the SteelSeries Xai, but with awesome artwork and a Diablo III logo. The entire surface of the mouse is rubberized to ensure maximum grip throughout your game. It’s very comfortable to use as it fits my hand nicely (I’m a size 7), not too bulky nor too small.

The mouse has 7 buttons excluding the DPI switch which is programmable via the software which you’ll have to download from their website. The switches can guarantee 10 million clicks but from playing Diablo II, I doubt if I would reach that mark. The mouse is designed for both right and left-handed people although I find this quite troublesome as I always accidentally press the buttons near my ring finger.

The scroll button is one of the most beautiful scroll buttons ever. It’s designed to look like a demon’s spine or something. The DPI button is restricting, as you can only have two settings of sensitivity, no sensitivity up or down, just two DPI settings and the LED indicates which is working. The cable is a double-braided nylon cord which is a good thing, since when I was playing Diablo II before, mouse cords just keep on giving up on us.

Using this mouse is a charm, although the option of customizing the weight could’ve been there since I find the Diablo III mouse too light. The mouse glides the Dota 2 Gamingpad surface smoothly and the sensor seems accurate enough for FPS if you need a break from Diablo III (c’mon).

The software, which is available in their website, looks cool with its Diablo III theme. You can save different profiles for different games and it also has a macro editor. You can also set a per .exe profile, which means whenever you load a game, it automatically loads the profile you’ve set for that particular executable. You can also modify the DPI options in the settings tab, as well as the illumination of the logo. The statistics tab shows how many actuations each switch has accumulated, which is awesome.

If you’re looking for a gaming mouse to pair your newly built rig made especially for Diablo III, be sure to check this out which SteelSeries offers at Php4,999.00.
