Steelseries Rival 100
The SteelSeries Rival 100 has a lot of positive points. It has been designed to be ergonomic and does cater to many features that pro-gamers are looking for.
It lives up to its promises of maximum performance, high-quality, comfort, maximum control and a high level of personalization. However, it provides little more than this. It does not go above and beyond what is expected from a standard mouse, so it may not appeal to those who are looking for special features in their gaming devices. As a result, it does not stand out much from the competition, providing those who are used to other brands with no reason to switch to the Rival.
