Mouse from Steelseries - Rival 100 - Page 132

post #1311 of 1493
Probably not. Can't test it properly at the moment because the mouse is sitting on my desk without the top cover but even without it I have to shake the mouse quite vigorously before the scroll wheel starts to rattle just a tiny bit. The top cover has plastic bits that are meant to keep the scroll wheel more firmly in-place.

Thanks, I'll ask for return.. there was even some scratches on the corner which highly suggest this was used before. I'll give them an earful and get some replacement, probably ask for a Rival 300 instead since I'm not so happy about the LOD of this one, although the shape is nice.

Try the "tape trick" if you like the R100.R300 is quite a different mouse size and sensor(feel) wise.

Also Kana v2 is a familiar to R100 and has a nice sensor too.

I come from a IE 3.0 background, so I'm confident I will be able to get along with the Rival size and shape. I liked the build quality and design, but the buttons were stiff, the scroll wheel was rattling, there was a bunch of scratches in the corner and the high LOD gives me the sense of inaccuracy, I want to avoid playing with a budget mouse.

Returned it and got the Rival 300 instead, I'll see how I like this one.

So I bought this mouse and experienced it's dragging / scratching on the mousepad. However I am not sure what exactly causes it. Some people mentioned it is the protrusion at the sensor, but when I put it on a flat plane it seems like it doesn't reach the bottom (even when puttin the hand on it).

Can it be that it's caused by the shape of the glidepads? The shape of the glidepads have sharp edges and corners. Most other glidepads on mice are rounded or oval. These glidepad shapes however have pointed angles.

But I'm still not sure because the exact place of the scraping sound is hard to determine.

It's the middle part around the sensor. Was dragging for me too.

Are you sure? Also it seems more obtrusive when moving the mouse in left-right direction, but much less when moving up-down. Of course this behavior could also be explained by the thinner touch area when moving up-down.

Also the scratching noise is kinda irregular. Like it "feels" inhomogenity on the mousepad (using a Fireglider fabric mat; doesn't change anything on a flat mat though). I got some mice with rubbed off feet and they scratch permanently and consistently. Not so with this mouse. It's sometimes stronger and less strong - which is actually what makes it more annoying than the others.

On a sidenote I found out that the Fireglider mouse has a small plastic ring circumventing the glidepads. Maybe this is why it glides like a charm? Almost noiseless. The steelseries has not. And my other scratching mice don't have it either.

Btw. the sidebuttons are awfully loud. Othere than these 2 issues seems like a good mouse.
