Product Overview

SteelSeries Aerox 3 Wireless is a mid-range wireless gaming mouse with Quantum 2.0 Wireless dual 2.4GHz and Bluetooth 5.0 wireless connectivity and three-zone RGB lighting.
The Aerox 3 Wireless is exceptionally lightweight, tipping the scale at a mere 66g. This is aided by the mouse's unique outer case that is hollowed out as well as a high-density battery and miniaturized electronics components. Still, SteelSeries promises IP54-rated AquaBarrier Protection, ensuring water and dust resistance in a segment-first feat.
Despite its lightness in weight, the Aerox 3 Wireless is certainly not light in features. It comes with a 200-hour battery life via Bluetooth, which is reduced to 80 hours with 2.4GHz RF. Last but not least, the TrueMove Air sensor is accurate and fast.
Unsurprisingly, the Aerox 3 Wireless can be used both wirelessly or wired via USB-C.
It is essentially the wireless version of the SteelSeries Aerox 3.

Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
The SteelSeries Aerox 3 Wireless is a good mouse for office use. You can connect it to your computer wirelessly via the USB dongle or through Bluetooth to keep your setup clean. Its Engine 3 software lets you reprogram any of the inputs, and it's fully compatible with Windows and macOS. Unfortunately, the scroll wheel doesn't have L/R tilt inputs and can't be unlocked for infinite scrolling.

Pros
  • Light and wireless
  • Low click latency and high polling rate
  • High-quality feet
  • Feels smooth and responsive
Cons
  • No L/R tilt inputs

  • Not enough buttons for some MMO players

The SteelSeries Aerox 3 Wireless' most striking feature is its honeycomb design. It also has other bells and whistles that you'd expect in a high-end wireless mouse. Like most other SteelSeries mice, it works extremely well with just about any game genre.

Pros
  • Lightweight and comfortable
  • Honeycomb design
  • Easy-to-use software
Cons
  • Doesn’t work with the SteelSeries Engine 3 software

Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following***:
The Aerox 3 Wireless uses the same TrueMove Air sensor found in the more expensive Prime Wireless. Bluetooth support is also included, which is useful if you ever forget your dongle. The main buttons are perfectly tactile and far quieter than the Prime line. The side buttons suffer from being both incredibly slim and rather cheap-feeling.

Pros
  • Sleek design
  • Easy to set up
  • Good battery life
Cons
  • Side buttons feel cheap
  • No wireless charging
