The reason for 2 stars is because quality control issues with mice are not new for Steelseries, but more importantly, their support is probably the worst in the industry. Who cares if logitech mice seem to break often when their support will promptly send you a replacement. I've spent two weeks opening up several RMA requests with Steelseries, and the end result is I was given a coupon to the Steelseries store for $60 (yes the mouse is $80 on their store), and I have not received a reply back as to why the coupon wasn't for the replacement cost of the mouse. At this point in time I'm not certain I will end up with a replacement mouse without having to downgrade or pay out of pocket. Big mistake sending it into their support!
I recommend everyone utilize their credit card warranties for all Steelseries products so you can skip their support all together. GREAT PRODUCT, WORST SUPPORT IN THE INDUSTRY.
I'm happy to provide a copy of the correspondence to Steelseries if they're actually concerned about their customers.
No braided cable, it's rubber and it sticks. (the cable detaches and you can connect braided micro USB, I've done it.)
Side buttons took a little getting used to over the corsair glaive.
The finish feels slippery but has not proven to be a problem in game.
I came from using the Logitech G403 for over a year. I liked everything about the G403, especially the feel of the clicks and its light weight. However, over time, I noticed I kept placing my ring finger slightly on the top right edge of the right button. I was most proficient gripping the mouse in a two-finger fingertip-palm hybrid, but after extended gaming sessions, I often would give my hand relief by placing all three of my fingers on top of the mouse, using my middle finger for the scroll wheel and my ring finger for the right button. Eventually, I came to the conclusion that the front of the mouse was too wide for me
As much as I liked G403's technical performance, I decided I needed to find a more comfortable mouse. After a lot of research, I decided to try the Rival 310 specifically because of its narrower front dimensions. Overall, I was probably 95% satisfied with the Rival 310. Given its overall comfort and narrower front end, I noticed I did aim better with it than the G403. However, after a couple of weeks of use, I came to three conclusions. First, although I liked the shape, it was difficult dealing with its drastic variation in dimensions depending on just where each finger rested on the mouse; I had to be thoughtful and careful when holding the mouse in order to feel consistent. Second, I felt like its top buttons were a tad too resistant, leading my fingers to feel sore after a normal night of gaming. Third, its idiosyncratic shape, with the hump further back, felt great for claw or palm grip, but didn't feel as good for my fingertip-palm hybrid compared to mice with the hump in the more conventional center area of the mouse.
I hesitated quite a bit with the Rival 600. Its slightly heavier overall weight, RGB ridiculousness, pointless removable cable, needless weight system, and superfluous second sensor for liftoff distance (which Razer and Logitech mice have been able to tune with *gasp* just a single sensor for LITERALLY years, which decades in mouse-years) all turned me off. I probably placed an order and cancelled it 20 times before I finally pulled the trigger.
Well, I am very happy I did. Immediately noticeable is that the plastic and silicone both have a silky, premium feel. The feel of the top clicks greatly exceeded my expectations as well; they feel almost equal to that of the G403. Most importantly, the mouse shape is exactly what I was looking for. While the 600 and the 310 are both Rival mice, the 600 is a new revision of the shape. The hump is more forward compared to the 310, and the mouse buttons rest slightly higher and flatter compared to the 310's extreme downward top slope. This all came together to mean a much more comfortable shape for my grip. It really fits my hand like a glove, and I'm very happy with it. With some tuning, lift off distance is better than the 310 but not better or worse than the G403, which one could also tune. The only relative weakness of the 600 compared to the 310 is that the side buttons are smaller and slightly less user friendly.
Hope this comparison was helpful!
EDIT (3/25/2018): Having tried this out for just under a month, I've decided to exchange it for another mouse. There are three reasons for this:
1. I have large hands, and my most comfortable grip position makes my thumb rest on the non-standard furthest mouse button. Yet, I keep wanting to keep my thumb on the smooth silicone part just behind it even though bending my thumb back like that isn't as comfortable. This discomfort, though minor, is present every day, every time I use the mouse.
2. The silicone material on both sides and on the primary top mouse buttons feels super premium and smooth. However, I think they also trap more heat. My hands get SUPER SWEATY when gaming with this mouse. The silver lining here is that there appears to never be any grime build-up on this mouse. However, this heat issue is a deal breaker for me.
3. The right and left sides of the mouse, due to the silicone, is super smooth, but both sides are tapered upwards, resulting in a slippery, difficult time whenever I try to lift the mouse. I have to pinch it harder than I'd like to, and over a session of gaming, my hands get really tired. This is further is exacerbated by reason 2.
I recently had to fix some stuff on my wife's computer, to which I had hooked up my Deathadder more than a year ago. Griping that mouse again felt sublime and reminded me of my 20s gaming with that mouse and, besides the double-click button issue that plagued the first couple generations of Deathadders, I had always felt that Deathadder shape was super comfortable. This is also when I knew the Rival 600 and I weren't working out as I had hoped.
My gaming mouse journey enters the next chapter. From Deathadder 3G (button issue) -> whole bunch of mice -> G403 -> Rival 310 -> Rival 600 -> Deathadder Elite.
If Steelseries every makes a lighter, more straight forward version of the Rival 600 without the unnecessary third mouse button, removable sides, extra weight system, etc. I'd go to that in a heartbeat.

At 131 mm, this mouse is great for someone with long hands/fingers like me. I also love its 3 buttons on the side, as I configured the third button to serve as an additional Left Ctrl input. But coming from the Logitech G403, the buttons on the Rival 600 are not as good. The g403 clicks were so much better. The side buttons on the Rival 600 don't actuate as well because of the modular weight system, so there was a compromise made there, but the left click on the Rival 600 was worse than I expected and it really shows in games like "OSU!" . However, the mouse has been great in shooter games.
All in all for my taste very happy whit the buy, also got delivered in 3 work days to Germany via normal post setting, so quite happy whit the purchase so far, nkt just hope it holds up for a while :)
Two reasons I only give this a 4 star and not a 5:
Firstly the DPI button right behind the wheel I think is slightly high, I've clicked it by accident a couple of times while scrolling which can be irritating during moments of game play.
Secondly it doesn't have a feature my old mouse had, which is a free spinning mouse wheel, which was great for quickly scrolling and zooming.
Neither points are deal breakers, but they hold it back from being perfect. Overall I'm really happy with it and I'd recommend it, if you want a great mouse at a reasonable price point.
I’m no pro-gamer but the reason I got it was this was the same mouse wintergaming uses. It’s not suited for MMO use due to lack of buttons, but it is super pro looking and probably the most comfortable mouse I’ve ever owned.
Do not buy if you want the mouse to last more than just an hour....
Contacted steelseries support but they weren't really any help, seem to automatically close the ticket instead of updating software to work in a way their user base want.
I’m not a big mouse user, thus Rival 600 would be my upgrade from the old one.
Quite the difference I would say, old one had a plasticky feel to it and was robust, whilst this one fits in my hand and I can claw grip it or use it with my palm.
It’s tilted on the right side to fit the hand better, also left click is a little bit easier to press than right click, really like the level of detail there.
Wheel feels satisfying, as well as buttons.
Not too hard to press but not easy either.
I don’t really like the high profile on the DPI button, it doesn’t bother me atm but they could’ve stuck with the lower one on 500 series.
Great shape but let down by the right side as you cannot grip it.
Terrible build quality and quality control.
Because of the build quality £30 is more reasonable for the price. Not worth £70.
I'm glad i got this mouse. works great and can customise any button. create profiles and the lift off feature makes staying in control easy.
the mouse is high quality, solid and comfortable. i just want another now for work :'(
