The SteelSeries Rival 310 is a good-looking computer mouse, matte black with medium-gray grasps and scroll wheel. Its size is extremely similar to that of the Rival 700: 5 inches long, by just under 2.8 inches vast, by 1.6 inches high. This places it squarely in the medium-size to big hand group, yet the mouse’s vertical arch goes down reduced at the front end than some other versions we have actually attempted. This makes it a stretch to reach the scroll wheel with an average-sized hand. Of course, that’s assuming you make use of a handhold, which is a great deal a lot more ergonomic than the fingertip-grip “claw” alternative that some gamers favor. For ergonomic factors, then, this is really a mouse for huge hands.
Though the grip, SteelSeries claims, is the initial made of “real silicone,” it’s as well level to supply particularly great grip. Nonetheless, the side switches feature a ridge that you can construct right here, provided the angle. One was a third side switch that looked like a pyramid with the top trimmed, directly under the front side button’s leading pointer. A 2nd was tactile informs that made use of vibration to pass along vital info (such as reduced hit factors) to the player. The 3rd was an OLED display in front of the side buttons, intended to furnish beneficial visual feedback in games. We miss that 3rd switch and can’t understand why it had not been rollovers to this model. On the other hand, we never thought a lot of responsive informs and hardly ever looked at the readout– for the very same factor, we deprecate computer mouse illumination.
The Rival 310’s technical expertise matches its appealing layout. The new SteelSeries TrueMove 3 Sensor, which is particularly crafted for esports pc gaming, offers 1-to-1 monitoring between 100 and 3,500 DPI and guarantees reduced jittering between 3,500 and 12,000 DPI. Thanks to this brand-new sensor and its wired link, I didn’t experience any input lag, and also movements throughout all applications felt smooth and all-natural. The SteelSeries Engine software combined promptly with the Competing 310 after a tiny firmware upgrade, and I could access a wide array of personalization choices without issue.
