Well R700 is over the top while not being over the top, its "pimped out" but doesnt have a killer feature at the same time, its also 109.99€ here and not even in German Amazons Top 100(R300 is placed 25 and R100 29th).

 

Like you know, they should go real bonkers when its that expensive, like, a palm plate with hinges and when you pop it up there is a colour LCD with buttons next to it to set the mouse up including macros, illumination and maybe some mousing stats and idk what else, without flipping it or software, which is another problem, the setup feature with the Display isnt there with the R700, so it doesnt have much practical purpose.

Altough that idea probably would have worked better in 2003.

Looks like it's now the only mouse in the market that has at least 5 thumb button AND a central thumb position with no button on it. (i need the buttons but can't stand the 12-button grid.) Promising mouse to replace my beloved discontinued corsair M95. Anyone have an idea when we can expect non-sponsored test/review to comes in ?

Side question: I read that it has a 3360 sensor. Is it as good as the 3366 sensor everyone talks about ?

What have you heard about ergonomic placement of buttons? I currently own Logitech G502 for like 18 months now. It definitely was the only best mouse on the market(PWM3366 sensor, number of buttons, ergonomic placement of buttons) before they started to release mices with PWM3360:



And now it looks like Rival 500 is even better: PWM3360, even more buttons than on Logitech G502 and better placement of the buttons:



But it isn't perfect. My perfect mouse will have more buttons than G502 or SS R500(like on the image):


Why is it better to have more buttons? Because on default layout on mouse with 3 buttons and WASD keyboard layout there are only about ~29 buttons available and average player can press about ~6 buttons(or perform 6 actions) at the same time with both left and right hands.

And while using ergonomic IJKL keyboard layout algogether with ergonomic mice like Logitech G502 or SS Rival 500 there are at least 49 buttons buttons available and player can press at least 7 buttons at the same time simultaneously with both left and right hands. The thing is that with more buttons you can bind your in-game actions in much more ergonomic way. For example, try to go forward, strafe to the right, sprint, crouch, prone, lean to the right, zoom in, reload, press voice button and press map button, and do it at the very same time simultaneously. There are no way you will be able to do that on default WASD layout and mice with 3-5 buttons on the board. But I can do that on my IJKL layout+Logitech G502.

Yeah, it doesn't matter if you play matchmaking in dota2 on 1600 mmr or CSGO on some gn2 or mge level but when you play in legues(pretty much in any game), you can take my word for it, it does actually matter how ergonomic your binds are if you want to win.

And looks like that SS Rival 500 is one of the best(if not the best one, as explained above) mice on the market at the moment.

What I really don't like it that everyone put LEDs on every single thing they can nowadays. When I turn off light in the room, my table looks like a freaking fir tree on Christmas.

For you it may be one of the best. For an very vast majority it will not be. I don't need 12 buttons on my mouse by any means. I'm solid with my keyboard for any binds outside if my mouse.

This mouse will get less than a thought. Pretty much doesn't exist to me. Lol
