    Review: SteelSeries World of Warcraft MMO Gaming Mouse

    The thing about reviewing mice is that you're actually looking at two separate entities. Yes, you're looking at the mouse itself, the hardware, but you're also simultaneously taking into account the software that powers it, the drivers. A mouse without adequate drivers might as well not exist. Read More

  • Video: SteelSeries World of Warcraft MMO Gaming Mouse & its changing LEDs

    An update to the ongoing Steelseries Word of Warcraft saga. As you know, there’s no Mac drivers for the mouse thus far, but one of our readers, Jim Krenz, pointed me in the direction of ControllerMate, a $15 application/driver/thing that lets you use the mouse as intended. I bought it late last night, and after about an hour of trying to figure out how to use it, got the mouse up and… Read More

  • Gotta wait till January for SteelSeries World of Warcraft mouse Mac drivers

    Gotta wait till January for SteelSeries World of Warcraft mouse Mac drivers

    Attention, Mac World of Warcraft players. You may want to consider holding off on buying that SteelSeries MMO mouse till January, since that’s when the company plans to the release Mac drivers, as I just learned. Without those drivers, those 15 buttons are useless. Well, like three of them work when using SteerMouse, a fancy third-party Mac mouse driver, but that’s not exactly ideal. I… Read More

  • That SteelSeries Warcraft MMO mouse doesn't have Mac drivers yet (but they're coming soon)

    That SteelSeries Warcraft MMO mouse doesn't have Mac drivers yet (but they're coming soon)

    Just a heads up to my fellow World of Warcraft players, especially those of you who use a Mac. You know that SteelSeries MMO Gaming Mouse that came out a few days ago? It doesn’t ship with Mac drivers, meaning that you’re not able to use all 15 buttons as intended. (That’s even when using fancy, multi-button mouse drivers like SteerMouse.) In other words, the mouse isn’t… Read More

  • SteelSeries drops WoW-oriented 15-button mouse, yes 15 buttons

    SteelSeries drops WoW-oriented 15-button mouse, yes 15 buttons

    When I was talking to SteelSeries about this beast, they insisted that this wasn’t part of an “arms race.” No, because in a battle of ergonomics, doubling the buttons isn’t always a good idea. But they assured me that they have been working really carefully on this thing to make it usable in the first place, and actually useful in the second. I’m thinking that the… Read More

  • SteelSeries Zboard released, plus WoW:WotLK special edition

    SteelSeries Zboard released, plus WoW:WotLK special edition

    Remember the Zboard? Remember how Ideazon got swallowed by SteelSeries? Well, they’ve regurgitated the Zboard and it looks pretty nice. I like the typeface they’ve used, although this keyboard in particular appears to be permanently marked up with WoW-related commands. Doubtless the non-special-editions will be a little less WoW-y, but in the meantime it’s BlizzCon out there and… Read More

  • SteelSeries reddens its headphone lineup

    SteelSeries reddens its headphone lineup

    Although one of the things that attracts me about SteelSeries is its understated design aesthetic, this new cherry-red version of their Siberia headset is actually quite fetching. Anything but black, please. If you’re looking for a new pair of cans, look for some in the upcoming flurry of reviews (including some SteelSeries stuff), but I can tell you right now that the Siberias are a solid… Read More

  • SteelSeries making a custom Warhammer MMO keyset for the zBoard

    SteelSeries making a custom Warhammer MMO keyset for the zBoard

    I’ve always been slightly skeptical about custom key setups. But, of course, I don’t usually play the types of games where a truly custom keyboard might be really handy. Maybe in Guild Wars. But I can certainly see, for games like WoW, EVE Online, and now Warhammer: Age of Reckoning, that a custom keyboard might actually be a real plus. As much as I’m used to it, it does feel a… Read More

We’ve already handled mice for the large-handed and small-handed — will this be the one for the rest of us? Let’s find… Read More
