Illumination and Software
If you choose the SteelSeries Qck Prism, you won’t just need a good mouse pad, you’ll also want a little highlight on your desk. The lighting is located in the edge of the base and can display 16.8 million colors. The lighting is divided into 12 zones and each zone can be individually assigned different effects. Of course you can create your own effects or choose from the available templates and edit them afterwards. In addition, the brightness of the individual zones can be freely adjusted.
A very special aspect in connection with the SteelSeries Engine 3 software is “Prism Sync” and “Gamesense”. With Prism Sync, all supported products can be color-synchronized. For example, the wave effect is not only played on the mouse pad, but synchronously on all SteelSeries devices. Gamesense can be used to display certain events on the mouse pad. Not many games are supported, in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, for example, can show a specific color on the mouse pad in ammunition shortages or low health.
With the SteelSeries Engine 3 everything can be adjusted. Whether Prism Sync or GameSense should be used or which of the 12 zones should shine in which color. The only really negative aspect of the software is the necessary registration, so that created profiles are also saved.
