SteelSeries Rival 700 review

 

The SteelSeries Rival 700 gaming mouse raises the bar with great design and a slick OLED display.

Tactile feedback in your palm ; Modular design ; Deep customization capabilities ; Built-in OLED screen

No left-handed model

The Rival 700 is one of the best PC gaming mice we’ve seen in a long time. Even forgetting the fact that it provides tactile feedback and swappable components, it just feels solid and precise when we’re getting our frag on in Doom and Unreal Tournament...

SteelSeries Rival 700 Mouse Review

 

When the average user goes to buy a mouse, they usually don't care much about it, aside from the fact that it works, and is comfortable. However, when a PC gamer is in the market for a new mouse, there are a plethora of options that need to be...

The Steelseries Rival 700 is a great mouse that’s crippled by its software. The single biggest selling point for the mouse is the tactile feedback, and until they allow this feature to be used with a lot more games, it’s one that most won’t use. The...

SteelSeries Rival 700 review: A great gaming mouse with missed potential

 

The SteelSeries Rival 700 is a fantastic gaming mouse, however lack of game support makes the tactile functionality a pipe dream for most games.

Comfortable, many customization options

Only three games with Gamesense support

If you play one of the three supported games, the SteelSeries Rival 700 will definitely add to your gaming experience. If you don't however, the Rival 700 is still a comfortable, excellent, and customizable gaming mouse — you'll just have to do without...

SteelSeries Rival 700 Review (Page 1 of 4)

 

A few weeks ago, I was hanging out with some of my friends, when suddenly someone I did not know jumped into a conversation with me. About ten minutes later, I realize the guy just would not stop talking, even though I was clearly not interested in...

There are certainly a lot of reasons why you should be excited about the SteelSeries Rival 700. It is not just because of its OLED screen and Tactile Alerts, although both of them definitely add to the list. The ultra-wide sensitivity range PixArt...

SteelSeries Rival 700 Review and Ratings

 

The Rival 700, equipped with an OLED display on one edge, has a solid, attractive physical design. Our quibbles? Aging configuration software, and some key features that work in just a handful of games.

Solid ergonomic design ; Angle-snapping support ; Unlimited configurations per application ; Swappable USB cords

OLED display is mostly a gimmick ; "tactile alerts" work on only three games ; Just two storable DPI settings ; No separate X- and Y-axis adjustment ; Just three buttons likely programmable

So, these are the issues the Rival 700 faces. With an MSRP of $99.99 and selling for $80 from various resellers, it's not an inexpensive mouse. Physically it's attractive and ergonomically designed, and the left-side sculpting makes it easy to...

SteelSeries Rival 700 Gaming Mouse Review - FunkyKit

 

Today we will be covering the SteelSeries Rival 700 OLED Gaming mouse. Now the biggest, well there are actually two things, are the small monochrome display and the vibration feedback. As far as I know this is the very first mouse to have both of these...

Vibrating feedback ; OLED display ; Steelseries promoted images for OLED ; SteelSeries Engine ; Swappable Laser ; Swappable USB cord

Well there we have it! The new ground breaking Rival 700 from SteelSeries. I found a few uses for the OLED display including but not limited to funny pictures and Gifs. I could see where the display could be an asset in the heat of the battle. I hope...

STEELSERIES Rival 700 Optical Gaming Mouse

 

Fast and really love the design , placement of buttons and the little screen on the side

It is quite heavy but I suppose it is because of these amazing features, it 'feels' expensive
