Mouse from Steelseries - Rival 100 - Page 87

post #861 of 1498
-LOD is high. Biggest worry before adding this to my collection of potential mice to be used in fps games from time to time.
- no 800 dpi, no 1600 dpi x(

Arrived 30 minutes ago, I wasn't at home, running to UPS courier point to pick it up today soon, can't wait to test. Also found read another thread about improved entry level sensor 3320 having CMS Xornet 2 with 3m/s has more features, even adjustable without software LOD, and then again, no 800 dpi and 1600 dpi. Stupid 500 / 750 / 1000 / 1500 dpi festival AGAIN, soon to be released, damn i love xornet too, would love to compare to Rival, has a lot of good points, and some cons too compared to Rival 100.

Applied 4 x 0.8mm h-glide skates ie 3.0 too, kills high LOD drastically, feels like vanilla Rival LOD with default skates, max speed @ 500 dpi 500 mhz ~ 3.85 m/s, @ 1500 dpi 500 mhz ~ 2.15m/s , 1000 dpi and 2000 dpi do not give similar speeds as with 500 dpi.. oh gosh..

No rattle in any part of mouse.

Shape is just like polished FK / FK2, love it.

Rubber cable is like zowie's / aby2014, love it

Feet are ok, don't know, why others raise the fuss about it.

Clicks feel good, better than zowie fk.

Snake skin side grips are better than I thought, like aby2014, a tad slippery, but not a tragedy. Somehow makes me think i am holding a AbyFK 2015, lol.

Back ass doesn't fill my palm fully, i predict repositioning the way of grip in hot game moments ocassionaly, or maybe just overthinking :V worried.

Side buttons do a very good job.

Wheel responsive and good like Rival's maybe.

Have yet to test how it does in FPSs, i guess 500 dpi will be the only possible to use nicely with 3.85 m/s cover :<<br />

Yeah the spaces are just right for them as well. Its funny how much different it feels with just a small raise. I have to say the mouse is really growing on me. Its a shame its not a 3310 or better mouse but the quality and feel of the mouse overall destroys anything in its price range. There isn't even any rebound rattle on M1 and M2. They are both tight as f! Sold the QCK on ebay so overall the mouse cost me like 17 quid.....that's just silly!

After reading your opinions it seems like it's a solid budget mouse, but I'm wondering whether I should buy EVGA Torq X5 for 15€ more (it's a bit more expensive than usual for some reason). I like the shape of the Rival 100 more, but the sensor on the Evga (S3988) is so much better. If I decide to go with the Rival 100, I'll wait for the white glossy version.

500 dpi 500mhz , sens 2.2, 40cm/360, railing is so much awesome with this one, cursor dead stable, double feet helps adjust high LOD to very good level, got tired in 3rd map.

If i can rail high with this mouse, *** wrong with Rival vanilla and it's way better sensor then? maybe shape of vanilla?

Mouse feels very raw compared to MX518 in terms of movement and feel. But i just cant get used to it so fast. We will see in the next few days smile.gif

Ok i got the mouse today, first impression after 2 hours

pros:
- amazing shape, spray control in csgo is amazing because i like the shape so much
- it's a solid mouse, the build quality is excellent for the price and no rattle at all
- the side grips are ok, i can lift the mouse without any problem (i have dry hands and, for example, my ec2-a slips everytime i want to lift it)
- the clicks are ok, a little bit softer than the huanos on the fk/za, harder than omrons
- scroll wheel is good
- the cable is good, an huge step up from the rival 300, it's like a cheaper version of the zowie cable

cons:
- feets are bad
- LOD is too high it's more than 2.5mm on my g-sr (more than 2 cd)

the sensor is pretty good, it doesn't have smoothing and it doesn't skip, maybe i can feel a little bit of angle snapping? Anyway it's snappier than any 3310. I still think the AM010 is rawer than this 3059, but overall it's a good sensor.

The LOD is an huge deal breaker for me (i lift my mouse more than flusha frown.gif ), i'll probably go back to my za12 after some more testing.

Nice. I love high lod. Thanks for that. smile.gif

Does the height feel enough compared to, say, za12? It's the only thing I'm worried about.

For the high lod can't you just use the tape trick? Does it work for all mice?
