SteelSeries Diablo III Mouse Review

I usually stay away from branded products. They seem gimmicky and they're always a bit over-the-top for my taste. This mouse is different.

The Diablo III Mouse from SteelSeries has exceeded my expectations. I'll get into that in a second. First, let's look at the specs:

  • Omron switches with a guaranteed lifespan of 10,000,000 clicks
  • Eight buttons in total, plus the scroll
  • 5700 CPI
  • “Demon Red” LED’s
  • 1mm lift
  • Rubberized surface

I ran around comparing it to several different mouses in the office. I have been going back and forth between this and the Razer Death Adder and at this point I am leaning toward the Diablo III mouse for functionality.

I like the two extra buttons on the right side of the mouse. I also like the ambidextrous design. However, I am truly not sure which one I prefer from a comfort standpoint. The Diablo III Mouse is about as good as it gets for an ambidextrous mouse but the Death Adder is really comfy for right handed folk.The Diablo III feels smoother in games and in my desktop environment. I’ll keep going back and forth and report which one I stay with. As for the rest, check out the video.

construction 10/10
performance 9/10
comfort 9/10
9.5 Overall Score

Totally solid... Ambidextrous design, excellent laser, rubberized texture.

I accidentally hit the side buttons from time to time. They can be turned off.
