I'll give you my honest opinion about these mice, ok? And keep in mind that my hand is 17,5~18cm
Rival: Basically flawless. Good tracking, build quality is good, scrollwheel and buttons are alright
. The feet are kinda bad for most people, but I liked it. The only problem was the lateral rubber, it's annoying for me and I put an electrical tape on it.
I just don't use it because there's other mice with a better shape for me (Zowie AM, G100s, Newmen GX1 Pro. And yes, I prefer ambidextrous mice, but I like some 'ergo' mice as well)
EC2-A: It's kinda small for me, idk why, because I do like small mice. But that shape just didn't feel right with that size. The EC1-A would've been better for me, I guess. Build quality is slightly better than the Rival, the scrollwheel is a bit worse but whatever, the clicks are nice (but a bit stiff for me), and the tracking is basically the same as the Rival.
DA2013: The build quality is just alright, the shape isn't for me and it feels kinda unconfortable, especially because of this
. The Synapse is really bad IMO, probably one of the worst softwares I've tested, besides the random CM ones and the M60 one.
But the tracking isn't bad, and a lot of people like it's shape. Compared to the other 2, this is the last option for me.
I haven't tested the Finalmouse yet, but it's a good mouse. Overpriced, I know, but 74g is 74g.
The Rival, ECx-A and the Finalmouse share the same sensor (PMW3310), but each company implements it the way they want to. That's why some 3310 mice feel more 'raw' than others, or more 'precise' than others.
