PRODUCT COMPOSITION



The packaging has a cutout to display the mouse in all its glory. SteelSeries packaging is always classy and this is no different.



Inside the box is SteelSeries standard package containing a driver CD, the manual, a case badge and a product leaflet.



Last out of the box is the mouse itself, don't be fooled by the picture this thing is huge but more about that later. The finish on the mouse is very shiny. You can see my office window reflected on the mouse. You can also clearly see the sleeved cable, a very useful addition to any peripheral you will be connecting and disconnecting frequently. SteelSeries really are on top of things in the quality department.


The 5 buttons on the mouse are well placed so as not to get in the way whilst still being accessible easily.
