For a gaming mouse at the entry-level price range, it operates quite well. If you want to slow the mouse down, the SteelSeries Rival 110 can go down to a CPI of 200. Note that SteelSeries is one of the companies that actually use the term CPI or Counts Per Inch, as opposed to other companies that may state the mouse sensitivity in DPI or Dots Per Inch (which is technically a print/display term).

Either way, 200 at the low end is great for attempting headshots where you don’t want a jerky movement to throw you off your game, but when you need to, you can push the CPI up to 7,200.

The larger TPFE feet are great for gliding across surfaces, but I find that it is best to make use of a mouse pad or mouse mat. Eventually, the TPFE feet will wear out, but not for a while, and you will probably end up buying a new mouse at that point anyway.

The general use of the mouse has been good. It has been good for daily tasks and it has been good when diving into a game of Fortnight here and there. The mouse button clicks are properly registered, the scroll wheel is a nice width and has good movement. The two side buttons are easily accessible and can be programmed away from their defaults of page navigation.

Final Thoughts

The SteelSeries Rival 110 Gaming Mouse is targeted towards budget-conscious gamers. If you are on a budget but don’t want to sacrifice mouse performance, the SteelSeries Rival 110 fits that bill. It can also be customized to fit your lighting preferences too.

The SteelSeries Engine allows you to easily configure the 6 available buttons as well as change the mouse’s RGB lighting scheme. Profile selection may be a little lack-luster but you can toggle between two CPI settings easily enough when you need to.

If you are looking for a entry-level gaming mouse or you are on a fairly tight budget, I would recommend looking into the SteelSeries Rival 110. It’s available now for about $30.
