To date the only mouse that has sat on my primary desk for longer than 1 full year has been the SENSEI MLG again by SteelSeries so when they announced the RIVAL roughly 6 months ago i couldn't wait to see if this was the mouse to replace it. The answer...

The SteelSeries Rival gaming mouse is comfortable to use and comes with attractive software, but the device doesn't really stand out. The SteelSeries Rival optical gaming mouse ($59.99) is a perfectly good product, but it should have been...

As it turns out, the SteelSeries Rival's biggest rival may all boil down to the firmware it runs on, and the software it runs with. Now don't get me wrong -- the SteelSeries Rival is undoubtedly excellent hardware -- there is not a whole lot of question...

Today we will take a look at the new Steelseries Rival gaming mouse. A mouse is one of the 2 main computer peripherals besides a keyboard and now you need a mouse for almost everything, from browsing the web to playing games to even the BIOS what was...

The Rival may not have as many “bling blings” as the Sensei (which has an LCD display and a 32-bit ARM processor), but it gets back to the core of a great gaming mouse: design, performance, and comfort. Designed specifically for right handed gamers, the...

Our experience with the SteelSeries Rival mouse was very positive, but there are some minor concerns. Our first criticism is that the mouse nameplate is an unneeded gimmick. This usefulness of this feature is overstated for a multitude of reasons, most...

Steelseries has a reputation for no-nonsense, solid gaming performance. Recent keyboard efforts may not have lived up to our expectations, but we've always had a strong respect for its mice, especially the Sensei, which is one of the most precise,...

When you put it all together, the Rival is a great mouse. SteelSeries did a nice job of creating a mouse design that takes in some of what has made the Siberia great while departing enough to make a unique design that will go well next to the Siberia in...

Today we take a look at a new mouse in the SteelSeries range, the Rival. This mouse features a new body shape, taking us away from the design used on the likes of Sensei and Kana. Is it for the better...

SteelSeries have long been established as one of the major players for enthusiast gaming peripherals. When we reviewed their Sensei mouse a while back we found it to be one of the best gaming mice around and they had huge success with their World of...

The Rival looks stunning, feels really good in the hand, is a bit heavier than most other SteelSeries mice, and offers a level of performance that I have not seen in any other mouse. This to me is a two pronged attack. Incorporating this new Pixart...

International Review By Les Numériques on 80

Classique mais efficace, la Steelseries Rival profite d'un capteur optique au niveau de l'exigence des joueurs et d'une bonne prise en main, notamment grâce à un revêtement particulièrement réussi et agréable. On regrette surtout son orientation purement...

International Review By Fragbite on 90

Först och främst är produkterna väldigt olika sett till formen. Avior är neutral och Rival strikt för högerhänta. En bättre jämförelse hade varit med Naos 7000, men den har vi inte testat än (Kommer snart). Storleksmässigt upplever jag Rival som en...

International Review By itc.ua on

SteelSeries очень серьезно подошла как к эргономике, так и к подбору комплектующих для новинки, придерживаясь при этом традиционного минимализма. SteelSeries Rival полностью оправдывает свое название, на рынке действительно появился достойный игрок в...

Die Edelcomputerperipherieschmiede Steelseries wagt sich endlich wieder in ein lang vernachlässigtes Terrain. Seit kurzem findet man nun eine sehr vielversprechende Rechtshänder-Gaming-Mouse im Handel. Die RIVAL soll mit ihrer ausgefeilten Ergonomie, dem...

Die SteelSeries Rival stellt mit maximalen 6500 CPI eine Gaming-Maus fur eine breite Masse von Gamern dar. Die zahlreichen Individualisierungsmoglichkeiten ermoglichen es zudem, verschiedene Profile fur die optimale Nutzung in unterschiedlichen...

International Review By gagadget.com on

Как только SteelSeries Rival была анонсирована, она сразу же привлекла мое внимание. Еще бы – недорогая по меркам качественных игровых мышек (около 600 гривен), вроде бы эргономичная (сугубо для правши, внезапно!), да еще и с такими громкими словами...
