SteelSeries Apex requires the SteelSeries Engine 2.0.

So I just bought this mouse and is it just me or are the buttons kind of stiff?

A little bit. I have it in front of me to compare with Huanos and it is just a bit less stiff than those.

I think however (if anything should bother you), the worst part is the fact the sensor isn't as aligned as it should be, and this will make you have to adjust to it more than you SHOULD*. It is crooked a few degrees counter clockwise. Unlike the Deathadder, Zowie EC series, Logitech G400 shapes, or MS IE 3.0 where they are aligned with the thumb rest, the Rival failed to have an optimal shape and an orthodox swipe causes a positive-slope slant, unless of course you adjust to it (but in reality that effort spent adjusting could be used aim with a more natural feel).

I don't think it's crooked at all. It's perfectly straight aligned according to the vector of your pointing and middle finger. That's all that should matter. The position of the thumb grip is irrelevant since hand lengths often dictate how the thumb is oriented on the mouse, or even how one chooses to hold the mouse (claw/palm).

Got mine right now.
Shape is really awsome. Feels like my Deathadder straight away. Much wow. So gud.

Cons so far:
Rattling noise. >:

I think everyone who used a Deathadder 24/7 should like this shape smile.gif

So you did update the firmware ? And you have any issues right ?

And i think the apex needs the old engine i mean 2.0
post #969 of 2803
what driver should I install if I buy the Rival ? Also wouldn't it update to the latest firmware from the web anyway, even with an older driver ?
Also can I just set it to 1800DPI 1000HZ without ever installing the driver? If so, do I lose something with an older firmware?
post #970 of 2803
got the rival in the end, firmware version 152.0.0.0 (driver 1.3.4 , didn't want to take the risk with 1.3.5) ? never saw you mentioning 152

btw is there some accepted optimal dpi value for this mouse, like 1800 for DA ?
