SteelSeries Rival & Sensei 310 Discussion - Page 117

post #1161 of 1345
Yes og rival shape is better. Only thing I'd change is maybe reduced length

The new ones hump height makes your grip way less aggressive. I am use to it however but mice where you can grip the front end properly allow for better aiming styles

However new rival sensor and clicks are much better. Cable is better. Skates glide good. I just prefer the 2x2 skates more then the one skate in the front

I mean guess it doesn't make a big difference. Good mouse but I'd prefer no sharp ridges and a more gradual rounded shell like zowie does where it just goes smoothly from top shell to side

Any news on feet for the Sensei 310? HotlineGames' Competition feet are 2 slow 4 me, and they should have kept producing the Performance ones. :/

Also, did Hyperglide just disappear from the face of the Earth or something? They were doing giveaways at one point, but now they won't respond to my emails.

I got my Rival 310 4 days ago, and it has the loose left click button. It is pretty damn annoying, because a squeaky loose left mouseclick kinda gives me OCD when I play CS.

So the question is, should I return it and try to get a new one, an EC1-A, or just live with it...? Do perfect 310 units even exist?

I've had a perfect Rival 310.
Just luck with any mice.

The Sensei is the one with more common QC problems from what I've read here.

I thought i had a near perfect rival 310 when i first got it, but the buttons got loose after playing a little bit, you can fix them by using layers of tape under the button and also fill in the side gap if the buttons are moving left/right. Not a perfect solution and it makes the buttons stiffer but it works for me, no pre-travel and sturdy.

This reminds me of the Logitech G403 issues where the first batch was atrocious with scrollwheel or sensor rattle. After the initial couple of months passed, the latest batches have had fewer problems and the G403 has been my main ever since.

I bought a Rival 310 last week from Best Buy to give it a shot. I figured something new to replace my G403 would be great. My only gripe with the wired G403 despite it's less than 90g goodness w/o the weight lid is that friggin' braided cable. I'm not big on taking apart mice to mod it so I just use my trusty $10 mouse bungee. But back to my experience with the Rival 310. It's not as big as the box makes it out to be but boy did the clicks for the M1 and M2 buttons feel rather 'cheap'. The RMB for my copy of the Rival 310 was loose that whenever I clicked on it to aim down sights in-game, I felt the RMB button slide. It's definitely loose. QC problems noticed within 3 minutes of using the thing, not good. Returned it and got my $60 back. Guess the G403 will remain as my main tongue.gif

I mean, I had no issues with my Rival 310 or Sensei 310.
And I bought them both on launchday.

Couple of questions :

1. How do u sand down the edge of a mouse? Use a 2000 grid paper , or something else first? Please explain smile.gif
Both the sensei and the rival are HUGE! And the ledge towards the bottom right side is too huge,..

2. How can I find the post that belongs to the picture from: "RECENT IMAGES IN THIS THREAD" I had to look through 69 pages before i found the one that models the mouse with tape from tennis/ice hockey stick.


If the mouse had just been a tad smaller in the back and a tad smaller in the front, it would be AWSM! And this part is so anoing considering they made two mice.. Rival could be big, but the sensei should be smaller

Best cabel, feet and feel of a mouse new out of the box i ever had. smile.gif

Yeah, it's the same with the left-click on mine. Just might return it for an EC1-A instead. I love the EC-shape but i friggin hate the bad build quality and scrollbug of Zowie mice...

The Rival 310 is too small for my hands lol, my ring-finger rests on the front part with plastic of the mouse instead of the silicone. OG Rival was the best, sad it had the sensor-spinout issue.
