The SteelSeries Rival Optical Mouse reigns over the competition thanks to a cutting edge optical sensor, newly developed switches engineered by SteelSeries, and a suite of tweaks to give you the edge over your rivals.
Rival’s shape was molded from some of the most iconic gaming mice of the past. The right-handed orientation, a raised back end, and sleek contours ensure a comfortable fit. Soft-touch paint offers a matte finish while still feeling incredibly smooth. The anti-sweat coating helps to maintain great contact even during intense gaming sessions. The rubber grips are not a sticker, but direct injected molded rubber for better control and grip. We also engineered Rival with ergonomic button position and size so clicks and movements feel natural, quick, and don’t take away from gameplay.
Rival is incredibly customizable with 16.8 million color, 2-zone illumination, a 3D printable nameplate for individuality, and SteelSeries Engine 3 for finely-tuned performance adjustments.
Advanced Optical Sensor
At the heart of Rival is the Avago ADNS 3310 optical sensor. The 3310 promises zero hardware acceleration, offering true 1:1 tracking and precise movements no matter how fast things get during the heat of battle. The CPI is best-in-class with adjustments from 50 to 6500.
SteelSeries engineered switches have a life span of over 30 million clicks and are the high-speed conduit between the sensor and mouse clicks. The audible mouse click is subtle, while delivering quick, tactile responsiveness.
When it’s time to get competitive you can really dial-in your settings thanks to SteelSeries Engine 3. Adjustable CPI, programmable buttons, polling rate, angle snapping, acceleration, and deceleration are among the customizations that will make the mouse perform as you see fit.
SteelSeries Engine 3
Our new software suite is where you take control of the mouse and its many features. This new version of SteelSeries Engine gives users a unified application to control all of their SteelSeries products, offers cross platform support, and will feature a cloud syncing system to make sure you always have your Rival settings.
Rival features two independent lighting zones that are capable of 16.8 million colors. Colors can be adjusted in each zone, per specific profile, game, or application. Four brightness levels and three lighting effects to choose from—Steady, ColorShift, and Breathe—will help make Rival your own.
3D Printable Nameplate
Rival comes with 2 interchangeable nameplates. To switch them out, simply pry the existing one off at either end (a fingernail or the tip of a pen can do the trick) and pop the other one in. If you are handy with a 3D printer, you could even make your own nameplate.

I love the mouse as it performs very well. My cursor glides over my screen flawlessly. I purchased this mouse along with the SteelSeries QcK Gaming Mouse Pad (Black). These two products seem to work perfectly with each other and I could not be more happy with my purchases. They were a big step up from the old dell mouse I had been using for over 6 years.
This mouse is not only is fast but has convenient functions. My favorite is the two buttons on the side of the mouse that can take you backwards and forwards to pages while internet browsing. It is nearly silent when scrolling and the clicking noises are not bothersome. Not only is it convenient, but it is stylish. Being able to change the color of the logo on the mouse is pretty cool, although I leave mine the original red color.
The fit for my hand is perfectly fine and I have unusually small hands. At first I believed the mouse would be way too big for my tiny hands, but it is very comfortable.
I love the fact that is is wired as I hate dealing with replacing batteries.
This mouse shipped to me in two business days and I ordered it with standard shipping so obviously I was ecstatic about that.
Overall, this mouse is awesome and I could not of picked a better mouse for my specific needs.
I also got to point out this strange bug I didn't yet solve that was referenced in another review:
"Mouse can't tell the difference between single left click and middle click. 9 out of 10 times when single left clicking chrome tabs, it thinks im hitting the middle click to close the tab. Will be getting a replacement, or refund for different."
So, I am disappointed I didn't buy brand new and haven't seen a review touch on any of these refurbished product issues. Also, Steelseries is releasing a Rival 300S to replace the Rival 300, but I guess I still hold nostalgia for the bumpy grip on the Rival Vanilla and round-from-the-center feet.
