SteelSeries Rival 700 review

 

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

 

With tactile alerts, a modular design, and an OLED screen, the SteelSeries Rival 700 gaming mouse is functional and fun, but adding modular components can get pricey.

Modular design, RGB lighting, OLED screen, and tactile alerts are novel approaches to gaming personalization. Adjustable sensitivity.

Additional modular components are expensive. For right-handed use only.

Conclusion All in all, the Rival 700 is a gaming mouse that takes a novel approach to personalization. While it may be argued that the tactile alerts, OLED screen, and RGB lighting are mostly gimmicks, they can serve a functional purpose and add a bit...

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

 

Our SteelSeries Rival 700 review takes a look at a gaming mouse with tactile feedback and an OLED display — read on to find out what we thought!

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 (w/ OLED display) Mouse Review

 

SteelSeries has earned itself a very good reputation for its peripherals, and what better way to put A mouse with an in-built OLED display? Useful or just a gimmick?

Very comfortable.

OLED display is a gimmick.

The Rival 700 is certainly a good mouse, with the tactile alerts from the vibrating motor being an innovative and genuinely useful feature. However, the OLED display is a gimmick and reduces the overall value of the mouse.

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...
