As many of you know, I am the winner of the Steel Series 12 Days of Christmas giveaway. Well, today the stuff I won came in.
"Jones, what did you win?" You ask, well here are some pictures

Siberia V2 Headeset

XAI Gaming Mouse, mine is gold. (Picture of Gold XAI will be up tomorrow)

4HD Gaming Surface (mouse pad)

Now that you know what I won, let us move on to the actual reviews.

The Siberia V2 Headset
The Steel Series Siberia V2 headset is without a doubt in my mind, the best headset I've ever used, or even seen for that matter.
The V2's are extremely lightweight, and even more extremely comfortable. Now, if you looked closely at the picture you'll be able to see the microphone. Why is it so hard to see? Because it's retractable, and in that picture, it's in what I call "The I don't want to talk right now" mode. If you are a 360 gamer, don't fret. You can have this headset also. You just have to pay an extra twenty dollars for the 360 connector (or fifteen if you use the vVv discount code ;) ) Alright, when I say these are comfortable. I'm not joking. I've been wearing mine since 8pm and it's 2:31am right now. I've took them off maybe three times, and that was for the bathroom. If you think these don't look comfortable, you don't know what comfortable looks like.

Update: I just watched a 4 hour movie on my laptop, wearing this headset the entire time. And they still feel damn comfortable. Just sayin'.

Pros
Lightweight
Comfortable
Excellent sound quality
Easy to use/setup

Cons
Retractable mic can be a little bit difficult to pull in and out, but this seems to be because it's new and needs to be broken in. So this will likely move up to the "Pros" list very soon.
360 adaptability.

Overall
Buy it, you won't regret it at all.

XAI Gaming Mouse
Alright, I'm not a PC gamer and I probably won't be one until SW:TOR comes out. But even I knew after I plugged this beast in, even I could slap kids in PC CoD. This mouse is extremely comfortable to the hand, it fits perfectly to the arch your hands makes when you are using a computer mouse. Also, if you are left handed. Don't worry, it optimized for you also., with the same buttons on each side. There is a button, just above the wheel in the middle-front of the mouse. and if you click, your cursor moves at what seems to be that if it were on crack, it would move this fast. Yes, it's that fast and I'm guessing this would be wonderful in FPS game or shooter games in general. EDIT - Just figured this out, the buttons on the side double as forward and backwards buttons when your not gaming.

Pros
Comfortable
Easy to use/setup
Speed option
Easy to move on any mouse pad.

Cons
None that I can think of.

Overall
If you are a PC gamer, don't buy any other mouse. This mouse is wonderful.

4HD Gaming Surface
This mouse pad surface is the best I've ever used. Combined with the XAI, it's an absolute wonder. There is no "Apply these to the bottom and your mouse pad won't move" things. Just plop it down and your good to go.

Pros
Absolutely no setup.
Will optimize any mouse for gaming with it's "smooth as a baby's bottom" surface.
Durable.

Cons
A tad on the big side

Overall
If you are a PC gamer, buy it. Bottom line, you won't find a better mouse pad surface out there, unless it's from Steel Series.

Overall for the package
Another buy. People, if you buy these products I'm telling you, you will be satisfied with your choice.
I used all of these products while I was writing this.


Alright, as promised.
Here are better quality pictures.

Great review!

I actually might pick up a pair myself next week ;)

I'm not in competition with anybody but myself. My goal is to beat my last performance.

The past can hurt, but the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it.

Great review, I'll definitely be investing some money into buying these, as you said, the 360 compatibility part does suck but at least it's a problem that can be solved. I just need to break my current headsets :P

Should have gone into more of a comparison with other top-of-the-line products of similar sorts, factor in price into your review, usually the biggest "selling or not" point, and maybe some technical specs on the headsets and mouse. Other than that, good job, solid writeup and congrats!
