Hey guys, time for our second Diablo 3 themed product review!
This time we are looking at the Diablo 3 mouse pad, another awesome product from SteelSeries that goes well with the prevision product we reviewed (see Diablo 3 mouse review). Before going into the benefits of using this mouse pad, let us first look at the several variations available:
This is the "standard" mouse pad available that comes with the Diablo 3 logo on it.
Note: There is a small version available of this edition. See the review below for more details.
This is the one I own. Comes with a high quality print of a Demon Hunter wielding dual-crossbows.
Nothing says hardcore like a guy wearing a bear cape right? Well you can't have an actual bear cape, but you can have a guy wearing one staring at you from under your mouse.
For all you Monk players out there!
Shows the spellcasting Wizard; casting spells!
Show off your love for the Witch Doctor class with this edition.
Note: Mouse pad does not come with hexes or plagues.
Besides one for every class SteelSeries also made one feature Tyrael. After all, he is one of the most prominent characters of the game!
Note: This version is a little bigger than the others. See the review below for more details.
On to the actual Diablo 3 mouse pad review!
As I already mentioned before I only own the Demon Hunter edition so this review is based on that, but it applies to all editions since the only difference is the print.
The first eye-catcher when looking at these mouse pads is their sheer size! Don't you just hate it when you run out of room on your mouse pad? Don't worry, it won't happen with these.
Here are the exact dimensions for these mouse pads:
- Width - 12.6 inches or 320 mm
- Length - 10.8 inches or 270 mm
- Thickness - 0.09 inches or 2 mm
Note: There is also a smaller version available of the logo edition that is 8.3 inches (210 mm) by 9.8 inches (250 mm). The thickness remains the same.
Don't worry if your desk is too small for these mouse pads as you can always put your keyboard on the "extra" space. This is what I did and there are no marks whatsoever on the mouse pad thanks to its durable surface. Speaking of the surface, you should be glad to know that it is made of a very high quality type of cloth that is both durable and very smooth. The mouse pad also comes with rubber at the bottom to stop it from moving; perfect for all you aggressive players out there! The rubber at the bottom is also great for long gaming sessions as it provides a nice cushion for your wrist.
Here is how it looks coupled with my SteelSeries Diablo 3 mouse:
Note: The mouse pad has been tested for smoothness and accuracy with both optical and laser mouse types by SteelSeries.
Finally, the prints on each of the editions are also very clear while sporting vibrant colors. This part won't actually effect your performance, but it sure looks pretty!
Important: The Tyrael edition is very similar to the other editions but varies a bit in size. It is bigger and thicker, making it more suitable for playing on uneven surfaces such as LAN parties. Here are its measurements:
- Width - 17.7 inches or 450 mm
- Length - 15.7 inches or 400 mm
- Thickness - 0.16 inches or 4 mm
Overall this is a very good buy for all gamers out there, and guess what? It only costs around around $15 (varies a bit by edition)!
