Firmware Upgrade Failure

A. Javidfar, Amazon
5 April 2015
  • Summary: Was really looking forward to this mouse. Received the first one. Worked fine. Was impressed with the feel and quality of the product and the design put into it. Installed the SteelSeries Engine 3. It detected a firmware upgrade for the mouse.

It's good but not good for the long run

jesenia c., Newegg
8 February 2015
  • Summary: I bought and had this mouse since 2011. It was a great buy for me at the time. It felt great on my hand and the settings had made the mouse a steal to buy. Sure it's $90 but I personally believed that this was easily justifiable for the features.
  • Pros: -Has a ton of colors to choose from when customizing -Feels pretty good in your hand -LCD Display is extremely useful for using multiple mouse profiles (which could include different colors, LCD image, mouse properties, etc.) -Steelseries engine has a ton of customization when it comes to the mouse
  • Cons: -Lifespan is, if you're lucky enough, about 4 years of use -The cable is made of a braided fabric that, in my experience, intertwines if not kept neatly placed -The silver paint on the mouse can be easly worn off

Dead in a year

Cody T., Newegg
3 January 2015
  • Pros: Good mouse til it started to malfunction.
  • Cons: Mouse lasted about a year before it started to malfunction. Only way to make it work when it stops working is to un-plug and re-plug the usb connection or slam the mouse down...

the driver doesn't work at all.

Feng Li, Amazon
13 December 2014
  • Summary: This mice's driver is not signed correctly to run on Windows 7. It a basic software issue and blocks you use it on Windows 7, I don't how this may happen on their most expensive mouse. Poor sense of quality for SteelSeries. They simply didn't test before start to sell.

Beware of big promises

Kenn Q., Newegg
2 December 2014
  • Pros: Easy to set up. The software works On board memory if the product description is to be believed.
  • Cons: So just got my RMA back from SteelSeries after a month and the supposed brand new mouse is still having the tracking problems. I have never had such spotty behavior from a wireless device. It will be working great and then slow down stopping and stuttering. SteelSeries will give nothing but canne...

Buggy Software make this unusable.

Fred, Amazon
27 November 2014
  • Summary: Buggy Software makes this unusable; except possibly as the most expensive "basic mouse functions only" mouse out there. The software was downloaded successfully but will not load successfully; trying to update the Engine software gives an error, "Cannot open bootloader device".

Waste of time and money

K. Quist, Amazon
11 November 2014
  • Summary: Terrible. Just received my RMA mouse from Steel Series after a month of waiting and it is having the exact same tracking problems. Works fine for awhile then starts to jitter and stop. Others have said on various forums that the laser eye used is crap and now I believe it. Poor product.

You don't always get what you pay for.

dschlicks, Amazon
10 August 2014
  • Summary: I went out on a limb buying this mouse, and boy do I regret it now. The mouse weighs next to nothing, which only amplifies the shoddy build quality. The software is useless beyond the ability to set the color of the lights on the mouse, which in and of itself, is also a useless "gee whiz" feature.
