Mouse from Steelseries - Rival 100 - Page 140

post #1391 of 1498
If you can live with the high LOD and 500 DPI than it is a perfectly fine sensor. I haven't noticed any easily detectable smoothing and it doesn't have any kind of acceleration. At 500 DPI the max tracking speed I got out of it is 4.36 m/s (mostly accurate, but I have an extra set of mouse feet on mine to lower the LOD that changes the DPI somewhat). It's plenty responsive, but it might feel sluggish a bit, but there is a different reason for it, which is the shape. All my SS mice feels slower and less jumpy when compared to for example an Abyssus on the same sensitivity due to the great shape. I can up the sensitivity 10-20% and get back the same responsive feeling and get the same accuracy (ingame), but with the added benefits of higher sens (better movement, easier to look around, etc). This is not due to different sensitivities (software setting vs reality) as I measured it every time with a ruler! It's just the same feeling as when you do 160 in a great car and it feels the same as 80 in a crappy one.

Negatives:

-SS switches are heavier than Omrons.

-Tracking at higher DPI is dogcrap. I use 1500 DPI on desktop and it's at the barely tolerable level for normal use and unacceptable for any precision work. Barely better than the Kana v1.

-I haven't bothered much with trying to tapefix it to lower the LOD, but when I did it, I managed to make the sensor spin out. I used the tapefix on all my optical mice, and it's usually pretty easy to find the sweetspot between low LOD and good tracking, but with this one it's not that easy. Possibly because of the raised portion around the sensor. However I only tried for a couple of minutes as the extra set of mouse feet lowered the LOD to a reasonable level.

Hi.

So I got a refund due to my loose mouse wheel. I decided against buying another after my brief experience of the Rival 100.

I agree with some other users descriptions of the left and right buttons as being 'mushy'. This is exactly how I would describe these buttons. I did not like them at all. There is not enough tactile feedback. I guess I just love clicky buttons. I am a claw/fingertip gripper and the size doesn't suit this type of grip. And what about the weight! It was way too heavy for me during Quake sessions. I am a flick player and I could not flick this mouse around comfortably.

So I have decided to stick with my Roccat Lua. Even though the Lua doesn't have the FW and BW buttons the mouse feels more premium to me. I think Steelseries bit off more than they could chew with this mouse by trying to position it in the same price category as the Lua but offering extra features like the FW and BW buttons. I think the quality suffers as a result.

Also, sticking with Roccat makes sense because I am a Linux user and Roccat has drivers for Linux thanks to Stefan Achatz.

Cheers.

If that is the case then you should look at their latest model the Roccat Kiro, definitely a well built mouse but it has the 3320 sensor if that's your thing, not all people like that sensor but some love it's performance within certain gaming situations.

Also the Kiro can include side buttons on either side or you can remove them easily. Customization is what this little mouse is all about....

I haven't really gamed with it yet or put it much to use so i can't say for sure that it'll change in the near future, however out of the box the M1 and M2 feel better on this mouse compare the first one.

I can update this post after i've used it a bit.


Actually, the first Rival 100 I ordered had buttons that felt the same.
(Both, left click and right click required equal force to get pressed).
However, my left-click stopped working in 2 months later (NOTE: Stopped working = physically stopped working, it couldn't get pressed and NOT the other way round i.e not registering clicks) and I sent the mouse for replacement.
When I got the replaced mouse, it had the left click heavier (harder to press) than the right click.
So I thought, it may be a revised version, in order to prevent accidental clicks.
So I went on with using it, however, now again, within a month, the same problem has occurred, the left-click has started to feel mushy, and pretty sure is gonna die in 2-3 days.
WHAT. THE. ****.

I've had good luck with mine so far. I'm almost tempted to stockpile them as its been my favorite mouse to date. What color is yours by chance?

Yeah, I've thought about the white to try out the less fingerprint magnet surface tongue.gif.

I like the soft textured black material but i really liked the white versions glossy feel on this mouse.
post #1400 of 1498
Yep, I like the Sakura Purple, Proton Yellow and the White. If I order a couple extras, I'm not quite sure what colors I'd want the most biggrin.gif.
