What customers say about "Size & Weight"
SteelSeries Rival 310 Optical Gaming Mouse
  • It's a nice best-of-both-worlds mouse with similar weight to my RAT4 wich were the best.
  • Pretty nice ergonomic mice. Feels very comfortable in hand.
  • Light and fits better for my fingertip / claw style grip.
  • Being Shorter than the 300 now means my hand gets cramp pains after only 20mins use.
  • It's quite light, which I didn't prefer in mice, as I come from huge mouses.
SteelSeries Sensei 310 Optical Gaming Mouse
  • The mouse fits perfectly in your hand and is pretty much a replication of the Sensei mouse/ the closest thing to the old gen Sensei.
  • Comfortable dimensions for either palm or claw grip.
  • Great build quality. Perfect for medium size hand and great weight.
  • A little lightweight for my preference, and no option to customise with weights.
  • I prefer a slightly heavier mouse as I use high DPI so I want accuracy of movement and no twitching.

What customers say about "Connection"
SteelSeries Rival 310 Optical Gaming Mouse
  • This mouse has a great cable which is pretty long and sturdy.
  • The cable made of soft rubber and it is nice to move around.
  • As this is wired mice, I'm sure I will happy with it, cus no any latency appear.
  • My only complaint is that the cable is not braided - it is weak and cheap, meaning that it bends easily and it can't be detached should it break.
  • I would like for this money also a braid of a cable as this one looks pretty flimsy.
SteelSeries Sensei 310 Optical Gaming Mouse
  • Кабель не сплетен, но это хорошо, так как он не будет цепляться за все.
  • Cable is as good as G203 it does not drag or effect your movement is any way.
  • Non-braided cables, just a normal fixed wire which cannot be changed without soldering.
  • The mouse wire where it attaches to the USB and where it attaches to the mouse has split at both ends.
  • The wire is a cruel joke. It's crazy thin, no braiding at all.

What customers say about "Features"
SteelSeries Rival 310 Optical Gaming Mouse
  • The rubber sides are extremely grippy. Best in the business in my opinion.
  • The RGB on the mouse is bright but you can turn these down in the settings through the Steelseries Engine 3.
  • The sensitivity of the CPI (DPI) across the 2 options on the DPI selector on the mouse can also be edited in software engine.
  • The silicone side grips are amazing, make amazing feel of the mouse.
  • I can see side grips getting crisp or chip oil on them after a while and becoming greasy.
SteelSeries Sensei 310 Optical Gaming Mouse
  • Reliable and good customisation options with steelseries software.
  • The LED features are a cool touch and even better that they are programmable.
  • High-quality RGB lighting. In general, I am very pleased and do not regret the purchase.
  • The coating is pleasant, does not collect prints.
  • Steelseries is still using rubber grips which can deteriorate somewhat easily so that is one part of the mouse that needs to be used with care.
