Since my white and black Rival feels different as well it might just be me getting lycky. Scroll wheel on my black is great and switches feels a bit hollow. But they are light so still okay. My white have much harder clicks but more crisp and scroll wheel is worse as well, love the glossy coating however.

The steelseries rivals are one of the crappiest build quailities
I'd say he was more or less lucky than the fade actually being any different
Fade isnt going back in stock because it was limited edition
You could probably find some used fade being sold at a ridculous price

There's always some random guy for which everything works fine and who "doesn't notice any flaws".

If the fault is present in select units then it is there - either you have play a lottery or you have to be completely unpretentious to be happy with the product.

Not everything was perfect. The first rival I had the right click stopped working after 6 months. I just like the size and feel f the rival. I tried the deathadder and it was comfortable but couldn't get use to the slightly smaller size

anyone of you know why my rival is listed in keyboard? (windows is also forcing me to update the "SteelSeries ApS - Keyboard - SteelSeries Rival"). I´m running ss engine version 3.2.1 and 1.4 Firmware. I tried to install the latest version but then the mouse move to HDI device... In windows 7 the mouse was ok frown.gif.

Due to the option of using any mouse button for Macro binds, I believe. My Deathadder 2013 has the same thing.
