Mouse from Steelseries - Rival 100 - Page 127

post #1261 of 1493
I had the chance to try it on the intended PC, with Steelseries drivers.

1st I have to say is CPI 1000 setting is pure garbage. Worse than expected even having read all the thread, while 500 is actually pretty good. But mouse is pretty comfortable and cheap, so I will keep it since it is more than enough for my secondary PC. I wouldn't use it as everyday mouse, though.

With some setting between 500 and 1000 -working as good as 500- it would be a good mouse and an awesome deal, but it feels like Steelseries artificially locked many features after the segment wall while hardware could give a bit more.

I've bought this mouse (White version) and it's build quality is really good for a 40€ mouse, it really looks beautiful to be honest, R&L clicks are also good and tracking compared to my old IMO 1.1 is night and day (obviously). Well if I'm gonna nitpick I would say that it feels just a little, well not THAT precise, I really don't know how to describe it. I'm running it CPI = 1000 and Polling rate = 1000 but it's good I guess.

Now for that HUGE con : This mouse is THIN! This mouse is designed for some 5 yo baby hands obviously, I have 20cm hands and I mostly use claw/fingertip grip, sometimes palm but all this is so damn hard with this mouse. I figured that this mouse would be perfect for me if it was just a little bit wider, just a little bit and everything would be fine. Now with mouse this thin I can feel the strain in my palm, maybe it will feel better after some time (muscle memory and stuff lol) but I don't know...

It's such a shame because I really like this shape and overall looks of the mouse, RGB lights are simple and beautiful too.

I will use this another week or so and see if it will get better...

All in all - A great mice for the price but it's too damn thin!

The IMO''s tracking is infinitely better. Other than that the only good DPI step is 500. All in all the sensor in this mouse is not to great.

Well, what is an alternative with a bit wider body, rgb lights and optical sensor?

I just picked this mouse up at my local computer store. It was on sale for $29 I think its pretty good for the price...
post #1266 of 1493
Also from what I have read it looks like the best settings for this mouse are

Polling Rate: 500
CPI: 500

Is that correct?

That is correct. 1000Hz polling also seems to be okay from what I've read.
post #1268 of 1493
Does polling rate have any effect on how fast the mouse pointer actually moves? At 500 CPI on my 1440P monitor it moves pretty slow. If I could set like 600 or 800 CPI that would have been great. Also if I increase the speed of the mouse pointer threw the windows control panel does that turn on mouse acceleration or anything like that?

no, polling and sensitivity (as in dpi) are independent

of course you can create some contrived firmware where that isn't true, but that will never happen in an actual product

OK thanks. I have it currently set to CPI=500 Polling Rate=500 I also went into my mouse setting in windows control panel and uncheck that "enhanced pointer procession" thing....
