SteelSeries Rival & Sensei 310 Discussion - Page 118

post #1171 of 1345
Just bought a second R310. Buttons feel better (defined and louder oO) and i have no more pretravel. Don't know if this is a new charge.

Steelseries sent me a new Sensei 310, my first one had terribly loose buttons with pretravel as well. The new one has no sounds or rattle in the button even when shaking, and the clicks feel great. Gonna keep this on my desk now and see how the test of time holds up.

This is one of the reasons to wait till the SteelSeries sell out of their first run models with those problems.

I shall wait another three months before buying a Sensei 310, just to be sure it isn't gimped from the factory.

I shall never buy a Rival/Sensei (yes, even the Rival 110), I'll sit with what I'm happy with until mouse manufacturers stop being complete imbeciles. thumb.gif

Even though there's pre-travel and button rattle, the shape works for me. I'm more than content with the mouse, and probably will buy another copy when they fix QC.

I know, you're waiting for that Kinzu update using a 3360 sensor of theirs whistle.gif .

Who knows what will happen, just keep the faith that SS will release what you've been longing for all these years poke.gif .

Took mine to the store in exchange for a new one. The LMB definitely feels more solid and doesn't move around as much as on the first one. It still has a bit of pre-travel (1-2mm max), but I can live with it since I love the shape and the sensor.

I'll just keep this one and see if it stands the test of time. Got 2 years of warranty to back me up... smile.gif

I'm about the same way with most new mice out there that come out. For example, the first batches of Logitech G403s had QC issues mainly with the scrollwheel and some sensor rattle. Shortly after, the recent batches haven't had as many problems (I had to go through 4 G403s before I got the perfect one via Best Buy).

I bought the Rival 310 last week and the RMB was so loose (it slid from side to side whenever I clicked on it in-game to aim down sights) that I gave up. Took me only 6 days to just say fxxx it and returned it for my $60+ back. rolleyes.gif

Actually really enjoying the Sensei 310. Shape is comfortable, sensor is good enough for Osu and the plastic parts and rubber side grips stick to my hands like sweaty boxers to your balls on a hot summer day, so I'm happy with that. Have some rattle and some loose buttons but what mouse nowadays doesn't have that lol.

I ended up ordering another Sensei 310 from Amazon so I have one for my PC at work. I now understand the rattle issues that everyone keeps bring up. It's pretty bad. My first one that I ordered directly from SS did not have any issues. Guess it's a gamble with the first batch, regardless of where you order from. Shape and overall feel while playing are way too good though. Just going to replace the 2nd one until I get a unit with no rattle.
