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

People say the native resolution of the sensor is 1600 but anywhere from 50-5000 are all native steps according to the official documentation, and it feels that way. Above 5000 is complete BS steps with pixel skipping, don't use anything over 5000 on the Rival.

at 1000 hz and the markc mouse movement recorder, I get anything from 5 to 1000 hz |: it drops to 5 and such not only in the end of the movement but also when moving fast. didn't feel any stutter though when I played bf4.
It goes like 1000 900 1020 500 900 20 8 500 40 1000 800 990 1010 hz in that software...
on 500hz the same and some spikes to 1000hz !
should I try 3.1.5 with the latest firmware ? my DA black had consistent 990-1000hz , both plugged into usb2 port

With 3.1.5 , If I set 1 sens to 1800dpi and the other to 50dpi, I will imeddiately feel if there's a problem, or it can do like 1750-1800dpi changes even?

Thanks for the replies, put on the engine for the Apex and it all works now. I was hoping both devices would work with Engine 3. I did have issues at first with the firmware update within the Engine. It froze the mouse up at first, plugged in a different mouse and changed some settings within Windows that is recommended on the Steelseries site, redid the update and works perfectly now.

Anyone know details on how to get one of those 3d printed plate/tag things?? is it possible if its been purchased through a local retailer?

I just got rival to replace my fried deathadder 3.5, im loving it so far. One slight issue so far is not having a good spot to place my pinky and ring finger while palm gripping this thing.... its so narrow (and i have long skinny hands) my fingers just drag on my desk.

OH, while im at it, i got another one...im using this on a wood desk, its some sorta laminate wood but i love having the limitless surface. Seems to track fine, will i notice a difference with a mousepad? and how long do those things last ?? Havent used one since the 90s lol

My first post, hello and nice to meet you all
doing it all backwards, elthore

dnt knw about 3d name tag thing.but i think u should get a mouse mat something like QCK + itsa XXL mat so you will have good space to work with.
and yeah i think you will notice a different with more tracking and more smooth glide and i think its the decisions for your mice too

I'm also wondering this. They have the template online so if you have a 3D printer you can just print it. I do not own one so I'm not sure how to create a custom tag or anything. I did find some online sites that will generate the 3D tag by uploading the template, such as http://i.materialise.com/ , but I am not sure how much it will cost.
