SteelSeries Rival Mouse Review

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 Warcraft devices, the first edition selling so well that manufacturing couldn’t keep up. Recently they have been expanding into other areas such as controllers for tablets however their PC (and Mac) peripherals have also seen some new additions. 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 though?

Packaging and Bundle

SteelSeries use familiar packaging for the Rival, sticking with their orange branding and showing a nice clear image of the mouse. The front cover of the box opens to reveal the device encased in plastic and there is plenty of product info around the box. Inside we find a short instruction leaflet and a small rubber bumper which can be placed in the palm area of the mouse, replacing the one which is installed at the factory. (SteelSeries also note that we could use a 3D printer to make our own too).
