SteelSeries World of Warcraft MMO Gaming Mouse – Comfortable and Lightweight
Today we have a very exciting product on the box. It is a blizzard license product made by the steel series, and it comes with a world of Warcraft cataclysm branding on it.
It is finally the updated Wow Mouse. Now the original Wow Mouse was a fairly similar-looking product, but the improvements that have been made are all really good.
Developed for World of Warcraft players by blizzard and SteelSeries cooperatively, the cataclysm MMO gaming mouse invokes the iconic imagery of death wing, the black dragon plate’s destroyer leader.
SteelSeries World of Warcraft Cataclysm MMO Gaming Mouse - Performance
We have multi-platform compatibility mac and PC, just like blizzard’s games, game library
official in-game supports. You combined all 14 buttons within the game, so it’s built right into supporting this Mouse. Advance macros with 14 fully programmable buttons onboard memory to store your custom settings, advanced elimination with 16 million colors, and four intensity settings very cool. The original Wow Mouse had the same deal where you can change its color and ten unique profiles to the armory.
Frames per second that is the FPS. that the most 11.75 self-adjusting can record. Inches per second are 150 counts and per inch is 90 to 5040, so the CPI seems to be quite a bit higher than the original Wow Mouse.
Acceleration true 16 bit these are all very highly technical specifications, you got to understand SteelSeries has been building mice for a long time this is not a cheesy like Wow branded product that is just designed to taking a cheap mouse to throw a label on it and sell a bunch of mice they’ve been building gaming peripherals for as long as we’ve had great professional level peripheral.
SteelSeries MMO Gaming Mouse - Software
The software for the original Wow Mouse was pretty good, and as far as I know, we’re using a very similar software layout.
So, focusing on the physical aspects of it:
- We have the latest drivers to download.
- A Quick Start Guide that you might find some more info in here.
- The gaming mouse software via the start menu just speeding sensitivity can program the buttons you can adjust the color intensity and pulsation effects, so it does have the pulsation that the original Wow Mouse had.
You can use up to 10 profiles with 14 different buttons. Buttons and default settings so, here they’d map all the buttons.
The first thing is it’s an MMO Mouse, so it’s all about buttons. We have five buttons on the left side, eight buttons on the top. And finally, on the right side, we have an additional one, so that is a total of 14 buttons on this Mouse.
I did not find the ergonomics of the original amount while Mouse to be quite to my liking. It was more of an ambidextrous shape, so it wasn’t fitted for a right hand, whereas the new Wow Mouse, the cataclysm mouse, borrows a little of the shape.
The same shape on the right side to rest your two fingers on and then over on the other side, the thumb buttons are actually in a much better position for someone to reach them the original Wow Mouse had. Some of the buttons were a little bit weird like these. You can accidentally hit one when you mean to hit the other because they were all in kind of a single button. It was more like a rocker switch, but this is a much better layout, so these will be your back and forward buttons and windows, and the other ones are mostly intended for games use.
Downside the Mouse, we find the SteelSeries gaming great engine as well as nice large slippy pads on the bottom of the Mouse, so it’s going to take you a long time.
SteelSeries has a very nice braided cable here. So, these are great quality cable sleeving. You can’t see through that to the court at all. It’s a long cord, and then we’ve got a gold plated USB connector at the end to make sure that you’re always making a good connection between the Mouse and the US port.
So the overall finish of it is quite a production sample Mouse, but this should be pretty close to what we’re expecting, so it’s kind of a worn armor look finish to the top of the Mouse. This is final, so this is pretty much a steel series safe stable this kind of rubberized a grippy feeling thing.
