RIVAL 100

The Rival 100 optical gaming mouse brings unmatched performance to PC and Mac gaming, armed with illumination, a best in class sensor, and six programmable buttons at the best price.

 
FORGED IN ESPORTS, DESIGNED FOR ALL

Whether this is your first gaming mouse, or you're already topping the leaderboards, the Rival 100 is the gaming mouse for you. Equipped with Prism RGB illumination, six buttons, an ergonomic design, and unmatched performance – we sacrificed nothing. The Rival 100 is the only fully-equipped gaming mouse in its class.

RIVAL 100
 
REFINED BY THE PROS

Professional gamers depend on their gear's tracking accuracy to perform those amazing super-human, reflex plays. To ensure the Rival 100 met their rigorous standards, we ask the pros themselves. Working hand-in-hand with our sponsored teams, the Rival 100 has been designed and refined for eSports.

TOURNAMENT-
READY


For the past year, SteelSeries has been working with the sensor manufacturer PixArt to create an optimized sensor solution that would allow our mouse to do everything that our community of professional gamers and streamers want and need.

RIVAL 100

S3059-SS CUSTOM SENSOR

At the heart of the Rival 100 lies the custom-engineered 3059-SS optical gaming sensor with 8 CPI steps up to 4000, 143 IPS, and 20g acceleration. The enhancements made to create this new sensor provide gamers with the most accurate, 1:1 optical tracking experience for any mouse under $50.

RIVAL 100

OPTIMIZED LIFT OFF DISTANCE

Unlike gaming mice that have to reduce tracking performance to achieve a lower lift off distance, Rival 100 sacrifices nothing by offering the best tracking accuracy paired with an optimal low lift off distance.

RIVAL 100

ZERO HARDWARE ACCELERATION

On-board zero hardware acceleration means there is no acceleration in the properties of the sensor of the Rival 100. Regardless of how fast you move the mouse it will always reach the same point – it's registering the physical distance the same - not the pace at which the mouse was moved.

RIVAL 100

PERFORMANCE CUSTOMIZATION

With SteelSeries Engine, gamers can take full control over the Rival 100's performance. Customize and remap all 6 buttons, adjust the optical sensor's CPI, customize the illumination with over 16 million options, and create personalized configurations for your favorite games that auto-deploy when the game is launched.

GameSense is a part of the new generation of peripherals, delivering real-time, in-game actions. Users can create illumination settings that directly reflect in-game actions as they happen.

UNIVERSAL DESIGN

While other mice have forced ergonomics, the Rival 100 was designed with all players in mind. Regardless of what game you play or your grip style, the universal design of the Rival 100 makes it the most comfortable gaming mouse in its class.

RIVAL 100

SCULPTED SIDE GRIPS

The durable textured side grips on both sides of the mouse provide maximum comfort so you never lose control in the heat of battle.

RIVAL 100

ERGONOMIC FOR ALL

The ergonomic, right-handed shape and 6-button layout were designed to work comfortably with any and all grip styles.

RIVAL 100

PRISM RGB ILLUIMINATION

SteelSeries Prism RGB illumination delivers millions of vibrant color options. Illumination motions and GameSense real-time game actions can be easily controlled through the SteelSeries Engine software.

RIVAL 100

PREMIUM BUILD

Featuring our iconic Soft-Touch texture on the mouse face, gamers get the same look and feel from the original Rival 300.

Awesome mouse!

Pros: Very responsive, feels good in your hand. Light but not to light.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this mouse to any gamer who is looking for a cheaper option but still wants great performance!

Great Value

Pros: - One of the best minimalist mouse. (Logitech G302 is pretty good too.)

Cons: - I wish it had no RGB and was even cheaper. (Nearly every single gaming mouse online was RGB, expensive, and had 5+ buttons. I just want a mouse with no RGB and was accurate.)

Other Thoughts: I always hated mouse with "RGB EVERYWHERE! 15 PROGRAMABLE BUTTONS! etc etc" I literally only use like 4 buttons at most. I just wanted an accurate wired mouse with left and right click. This was it.

Mediocre at best

Pros: - Shape is comfortable
- Sensor tracks pretty well. It is accurate and I have yet to foil it with any fast movements
- Left and right mouse buttons are good given the price. Clicky with even-resistance throughout the length of the button

Cons: Where do I even start?

- The rubbery finish at the top of mouse attracts skin oils like crazy and it's impossible to clean off. After a week of use, I had shiny spots all over the mouse where my skin touched it. I contacted Steel Series customers service to see if this was a known issue and they said "clean it with soap." Really? Every few days, I'm supposed to clean it with soap? I've never had this issue with ANY mouse in my life.
- The back and forward buttons are sharp. There's a sharp edge on them that makes them unpleasant to depress. They are also very loud, as other reviewers mentioned, especially the forward button which makes an nasty, hollow, click.
- No lift-off distance control in the mouse software. This may or may not affect you. This is annoying for me personally. SteelSeries reserves this feature for their higher priced mice but all it would take is a software addition. C'mon man.
- The wheel. Where do I begin? It hangs in-between clicks in games and then suddenly activates without any tactile feedback so i'll be in the middle of a Quake match and my weapon will switch all of a sudden. This is very aggravating. Also, it requires WAY too much to depress the wheel (mouse button 3).

Other Thoughts: In conclusion, stay away. Far, far away.

Insert Typical Review Title

Pros: Nice Shape
Nice Grips
Very Good Looking
Good Software
Two Mouse Profiles, Easy To Switch
Nice Scroll Wheel
Good Build Quality
Low Liftoff Distance
Good Scroll Wheel for Browsing
Fine Sensor
Small Mouse, Good for Small Hands
Good LED Options

Cons: Small Mouse, Not for Large Hands
The DPI/CPI button beneath the scroll wheel is too easy to switch, had to change both profiles to 500 DPI to avoid accidents in game.
Scroll Wheel is good for browsing, fine for gaming but not the best.
The mouse is very light, I do not have much experience with gaming mice so I haven't a clue if this is regular but I don't like the lightness of the mouse.
Sometime it feels like the bottom scuffs a bit on the mouse pad but this may just be my desk.

Other Thoughts: In order to change the DPI Options and LED Options, download the Steelseries Engine 3 Software.

4 months use, still satisfied.

Pros: Smooth tracking with no noticeable acceleration/deceleration.
Easy to understand software, allows you to setup multiple configurations with very useful button assigning options that can be set to specific applications.
Stylish RGB lighting with fade options that can be set for all individual configurations.
Fairly quiet clicking.
Average weight, not too heavy, not too light.

Cons: Not any fine tuning options in terms of dpi/cpi, only a few defaults between 250 and 4000cpi.
Scrolling is a bit stiff, but consistent with the amount of pressure needed to scroll.

Other Thoughts: Would highly recommend if looking for a cheap but decent gaming mouse.
Not a fault of SteelSeries but, it took over a month to arrive, will be avoiding ordering from china again.
May upgrade to higher model in the rival series in the future, really like it's design.

5/ 5

Pros: Managed to get one of these cheap when my local electronics store was closing. This was actually the first time I've ever bought a true gaming mouse and I'm extremely happy. Now I just need a better computer to make use of it's capabilities. Once I do I may adjust this but I doubt it.
All and all good buy if you're starting out like I am.

Cons: None other than I think this mouse might actually have more computing power than the computer it's plugged into.
