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

That explains it, yeah their original implementation was better. They may have changed factories considering all of their QCKs are different now too.. or they just decided to revise everything for whatever reason

Money talks i guess

i too think that the vanilla rival feels a bit more smooth (0.40.0.0 FW).
But when it comes to things beside the electronics i think the 300 is an improvement, the side grips are way(!) better then before.
(right now my Vanilla which is out of service since half a year has really sticky/glue like side grips which might be common with materials loosing their plasticizer, a problem which is shared with my old XAIs which also have a light stickiness although they are cleaned)
Beside the grips i think that the side buttons/switches are also way better then on the original.

A interesting question would be if there are people who have tried to fit the Vanilla PCB into a 300 Shell?

They are 100% compatible, you can swap the internals easily.

New Rival 300 firmware out. 3.8.2 engine

http://techblog.steelseries.com/2016/07/01/new-in-3.8.2.html

New Firmware

Rival 300 - Fixed tracking issue some users were experiencing when turning on colorshift and moving at high speeds with low CPI.
Bug Fixes

Fixed a bug that would prevent devices from starting update properly. Namely, Rival 300.
Fixed a random crash on MacOS starting up with a lot of devices connected.
Fixed an issue that could cause crashing during initialization if app switching a lot.
Choosing the effect for Rival 700’s ‘vibrate on click’ will now preview that effect again.
Config and Macro names default to the next, lowest, incremental value.
Friendlier headshot icon.
App switching now works on Windows for apps launched as administrator.

Yeah I'm waiting before trying that, people on forum reported the software is crashing with a 'fatal error' after updating.. so I'll wait until that's sorted
post #2697 of 2805
Life is a fatal error, get in there soldier!
post #2698 of 2805
Hmm, i had no problems but.....
post #2699 of 2805
no problems here either (Windows 10 Pro x64, no previous engine Installed)

instant placebo or does it feel smoother aka more Vanilla like discussed a few post earlier?

Haven't tried it, but if it does feel that way all it means is they went back to their older firmware; which isn't really a bad thing. I'll still wait until they sort out any possible issues and then update.. I've learned my lessons from samsung and nvidia more than once.. haha
