Mouse from Steelseries - Rival 100 - Page 80

post #791 of 1493
I just finished soldering Omron switches and its so much better now. I also replaced the mouse feet with Puretrak IME3.0 skates and it lowered my LOD to about 2cds.

My Rivals clicks are much better now after a few days of use. The 'shallow' sound is gone; I really prefer these over KPMs OMRONs. Easier to time semi-autos and stay in pace. Would have never thought I would like this mouse as much as I do.

Got mine in and I have to agree with recent sentiment about the clicks. They're...gross. It feels like they took some huanos and dropped them in molasses. Still assessing shape but it seems to be the standard Steelseries shape. Would prefer a more pronounced rear, not that I was expecting it.

Here are initial impressions of the mouse, comparing it with the FK1 that I've been using for the past couple weeks. When I mention the Sensei I'm referring to the vanilla version, the RAW is a pos.

Shape: More comfortable than the FK1, fills my hand better. Hump is at back of the mouse instead of the middle, and it isn't as long as the FK1. I claw/palm and this offers better grip for where I pinch my ring finger against the side (I lift often). I actually really like the shape, but I prefer the larger Sensei (though I sold mine off and can't directly compare the two).

Coating: There's three different textures. Top side soft rubber, hard plastic sides (a la DA13+), and glossy plastic with hard plastic stipling for grips on either side. I would prefer it if they would forgo the stippling and just have it all hard plastic, but it's not that bad. The rubber is nice.

Buttons: Same switches on the Rival. They are mushy, but not as bad as when used with the Rival 300 because you have more leverage (I guess is what I'd call it) when pressing M1/M2 because of the shape. M4/M5 action is crisp but hollow sounding, and I don't really care for protruding buttons; not a big deal. M1/2 rattle a bit when bringing the mouse down on the desk if your fingers aren't resting on them. I lift my mouse often so it's kind of annoying, but the mouse feels solid. I probably favor the Huano switches because they're more crisp, but they both lose out to Omrons anyway. The SS aren't unusable though, I can get used to them.

Scrollwheel: Very nice, suits my purposes well. It's like the Sensei's but rubbery (softer) and not as stiff. Best scrollwheel I've used in terms of scroll action is probably the G402.

LOD: Not good, but not terrible.
Cable: They're copying the Zowie cable and it's a great decision. Slightly thinner than the Zowie cable but just as pliable. A+
Feet: The glide is rough compared to the FK1, mouse makes a lot of noise running over a QcK. Good if you like control.
Weight: Don't have a scale but it's pretty close to the FK1, maybe a little heavier. Fine for me.

Off to play.

There could be QC issues but I have used two Rival 100s and both have good clicks. Definitely less stiff than the Huanos on FK orig. Mine were wonky initially as I mentioned but the hollowness disappeared completely. Granted, I am probably a weirdo when it comes to clicks as I really hate the clicks on g30x biggrin.gif No opposing force so I am constantly clicking them by accident.

Sacrificed the shoulder for this one. Just trying to push/test the sensor. Analyze as you may.

The LOD seems better on 500 as well, though that may just be perceived because of less movement.

weird... one would imagine they would use the 12bit motion report mode and not run into this issue.
can you plot xcounts? or upload logs
