Steelseries Rival - Page 269

post #2681 of 2805
For people who used both the original rival and rival 300

Do any of you feel like the original rival just 'felt better' in terms of tracking? Or is that in my mind. I recall the original rival feeling really 'smoothed' and the newest one doesn't feel that way. I mean my rival 300 already broke (or had firmware issues) but I'm thinking of getting another now that they say they fixed the firmware problems

Original rival is much better, the 300 I got has a faulty scroll wheel, and I stupidly threw away the receipt so I can't return it. Pretty much useless, plus I think the original rival is built much better. The rubber on the sides of my original rival has never wort out like other people's and I got mine practically first day of release.

Idk I want to say it's in my head but I don't think it is, original tracked differently.. wonder if the ones on Amazon are legit... rubber sides will probably burn through again.. thinking of ordering one

I think the newer firmware 3310 is what introduced all these spin out issues

I got rid of my Rival 300 and kept my original white rival. The 300 sensor felt different for me.

I'm pretty sure it is implemented differently, I don't know any other way to explain it but the original felt "smooth" but 100% consistent

I regret RMA it just thought I was getting new rubber sides. I do love the gunmetal finish though

I haven't used the original Rival so I can't say, but do you guys have it close-by to try it out? I'm using the Rival 300 Black and I think it's fine. I'm really digging the shape so don't know what mouse I would switch to, what are you guys currently using?
post #2688 of 2805
There's no reason for you to switch, I just want an original rival with the firmware I use to use but I don't think it's possible anymore. I'd have to wait until a 3360 rival probably
post #2689 of 2805
The "Rival 300" uses a other PCB so they have written a new firmware for it, for me the Original Rival has the better firmware atm but they are working on a new firmware for the "Rival 300" from what i have heard on the Steelseries Reddit.
I dont really get it why they did that OG rival felt 9/10 for me so idk why they switched it up its a 9/10 for me cus 3360 is the better sensor ofc

Not so muich the sensor feeling for me but the materials and build were better on the original. Never had any problems with the old rubber grips wearing. The silver 300 I have feels lighter.
