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

I feel like it is smoother but can't prove it etc.

You don't need to prove it, you used it before this firmware and know it felt different. They probably reverted back to an old firmware where they had less issues with malfunction and decided the new firmwares weren't worth using

Well I tried 3.8.2 and the 104 firmware, my issue still persists (disconnects) AND it made the cursor feel weird; almost as if the DPI was a higher value than stated

I uninstalled 3.8.2, reinstalled 3.8.1 and re-flashed the firmware to 103.0.0 since I'd rather have the tracking I had before but with the disconnect issue.. idk what it is tbh. I also find it weird that they require a software update to install a new firmware lol

Would you recommend buying the "old" rival over the rival 300?

Depends on the price. I'm using the Rival 300 Black with SSE3 3.8.2 with latest firmware on Windows 10 Pro with no issues. But it seems very PC specific if you have problems or not with the mouse.

price doesn`t matter, only performance does smile.gif Some wrote here is thread that old one was "much better" so Im not sure...
post #2707 of 2805
I'm using 3.8.1 engine with 103.00 firmware, I prefer it over the 104

I no longer have issues, my problem was a dead USB port on my computer. Plugged it into the usb 3.0 port and it's performing fine
Also returned my zowie ZA for no reason cause I thought it was dead but it was my usb port. derp. Go with the rival 300 if you're looking at it.. performance seems to be what I recall it.. it's fine; my posts before was just me going crazy cause a bad port was ruining my life

when it comes to quality I would definitely choose the 300, the improvement on the sidegrips and side buttons is huge + you can choose from three different coatings.
For some people (including me to a degree) the old Rival feels a bit smoother (I can only refer to 0.40.0.0 FW) but I think those claims are very subjective and I don't think it will affect the performance inGame.

Better Quality / Materials > subjective feeling that the old one might feel better with a certain FW

3 different coatings of the Rival300:

- Glossy White
- the same as the OG Rival - Soft Touch Black ?
- Matte Grey - that ones different from the OG Rival coating, right ?

I dont want glossy, so should I choose Soft Touch Black (same as OG Rival) or go for Matte Grey ?

Is Matte Grey harder/more resistant to scratching ?


also Im seeing that Rival 300 Silver exists, but I dont see that color on the SS official Rival 300 page

what coating does Rival 300 Silver have ?

Or is Silver and Grey the same thing here ?
