SteelSeries Rival 650 Review

👤by Dave Worth Comments 📅19-03-19
We found our time with the SteelSeries Rival 650 to be quite a pleasant one, with the price tag being 119.99 we had our expectations high, and this mouse has lived up to them.

As with the Rival 710 this mouse is extremely comfortable to use over long periods, and is suitable for most grip styles, the only negative around the design is that the front mouse button on the left is extremely difficult to reach as it is situated too far forward on the mouse, so if your hands are on the smaller side you may want to try this before buying.

One thing that confounded us slightly is the inclusion of the additional weights, the Rival 650 is on the heavy side and it's hard to imagine a situation where a user would want additional weight added as we would imagine it would make the mouse too heavy to be used comfortably.

If you're a user of the SteelSeries Rival 600 & are looking for a wireless adaptation this is the choice for you as it is practically a twin of that model, minus the wired connectivity.

One thing that we're missing from the Rival 710 is the tactile feedback, however this is an understandable omission as it would negatively affect the Rival 650's battery life.

Overall it seems the Rival 650 is designed well enough, barring the location of the front mouse button, The black plastic that the shell is made out of is smooth, yet grippy however it does attract finger prints like nobodies business.

If you're looking for a wireless mouse and this is in your price range, we'd recommend trying before you buy due to the weight of the mouse
