You can argue all day about the importance of a quality keyboard for gaming, but no one argues about the importance of a quality gaming mouse. Every PC gamer may not agree on a single mouse, but they all agree a quality gaming mouse is a must. SteelSeries' new Rival was designed in partner with some of the best Pro-gamers to create a great mouse, not just a good one.
The SteelSeries Rival was built for speed, consistency, and durability. It has a 30 million click lifespan, 6200 CPI (Counts per Inch), and can keep up with a speed of 200 inches per second. The design of the mouse is modeled after SteelSeries' best-selling Ikari, and comes packing an anti-sweat coating, rubber side grips, and is ergonomically modeled for right-handed users. It's not all about the mouse as you need solid software to back it up to back it up too.
The Rival works with the SteelSeries Engine 3 software that includes technology just for gamers. The Engine 3 software will also allow full customization of the 6 programmable buttons, illumination colors (16.8 million colors), and macros. SteelSeries ExactAim allows the user to slow down, focus and aim. SteelSeries ExactSens controls the levels of sensitivity. SteelSeries ExactAccel controls how quickly the mouse accelerates from one point to another.
The best part of this mouse is the amazing price tag of only $59.99 US MSRP. Quality of this level usually pushes the price of a mouse much higher. The SteelSeries Rival is available now for pre-order. Once released, I am sure you can expect to see this mouse at all the usual suspects.
