Introduction

I have no way to describe just how many mouse and keyboard options there are in the world today. I’m not talking about all of them either. I’m just talking about “gaming” mice and keyboards. The options have gone through the roof and all you have to do is try a quick Amazon search and you’ll have enough mice to send the black death sweeping through Europe again! Needless to say, the eSports phenomenon has had a huge part in bringing many a design from many a company. Today, we’re going to look at a new company for PureOC by reviewing a mouse and keyboard from SteelSeries. Do they have what it takes to stand out? We’ll dive into that further, but I can say that their social media presence and website appearance are already off to a good start. Let’s look at a quick word from their site so we can get a feel for what motivates their product designs.

WE ARE GAMING

SteelSeries has fueled the gaming industry by creating innovative new products, designed specifically for eSports and passionate gamers everywhere.

RELENTLESS INNOVATION

Here at SteelSeries, we are obsessed with “firsts”. Dating back to 2001, our company was formed to meet the surface needs of hardcore gamers by introducing the first glass mousepad, the Icemat. Since that original innovation, we created the first mechanical gaming keyboard, the first suspended headband for gaming headsets, the first World of Warcraft mouse and endless other innovations. SteelSeries is dedicated to building products that push professional gaming further than anyone dreamed. Those innovations make gaming more competitive and more fun for gamers everywhere.

INSPIRING DESIGN

Our fans, customers and professional eSports teams demand the ultimate performance from SteelSeries. We combine the necessity of professional-grade quality and durability with our unyielding pursuit of simple, modern design. Every surface, button, dial, key and wheel is designed with the gamer’s every move in mind. It’s our goal to deliver gaming peripherals that feel like an extension of you. Our designers hand-pick every material to make sure you have a beautiful product and our engineers test every feature, ensuring tournament-ready quality.

WE ARE eSPORTS

Since the new millennium, SteelSeries has been a driving force of eSports and professional gaming. From sponsoring the first pro players, to creating products specifically for pro teams, to turning exceptional gamers into global superstars, SteelSeries has been focused on growing the industry and helping gamers everywhere. Our pro team relationships are more than sponsorships, they are partnerships. We work closely with the world’s best gamers to fine-tune our products and to ensure everything we create meets the needs of gamers at every level. Whether it’s Evil Geniuses winning $6.6 million at The International 5 using all SteelSeries gear, or giving you the tools to step up your own game, eSports is at the heart of everything we do.
