Hell, even one had where the wire enters the mouse twisted so it rubbed on the mouse mat.


Mine also came with some sort of dead zone between the button and the switch, and I fixed it by myself by opening the mouse and making a few modifications on screw placement.

You see, if you open your mouse you'll notice that steelseries does not use screws on some places, even the PCB with the sensor if fixed on place with only one screw and the screw used on mouse wheel.

This fixed mine:

What's the difference between the "Rival 300" and the "old Rival Optical"? Apart from the fact that the rival is 70€ on amazon whilst the other is 47€...?

one difference is, that you apparently can't install the older firmwares on the 300 anymore.

Doesn't the new Rival 300 have a different MCU, therefore can't use the same firmware?

but you can still install the new firmwares on the old rivals - it's weird.

With some firmware the mouse feels butter smooth, but with some oher firmware it feels delayed.
No idea.


Waiting on the rival 700 anyways.

Is it possible to switch out side grips with the rival? I want a fully white one, so I was thinking of buying a white rival and an invictus gaming rival (If I can even get one) and mix match the grips and buttons and whatever.

You can...

So the Rival 300's have been out for some time with the 'updated side grips', people have had them in hand for a while now. A video was uploaded of a user with the Fade, side grips wearing out quite well, so much for them 'not wearing out anymore' lol
