I'm thinking about picking up the SteelSeries Rival 100 Gaming Mouse can someone share their experience with it?
Alternatively, if there are any better/cheap gaming mouses that are around that price range, I'd be more than happy to hear about them.
I personall don't like this one because of the shape but my friends love it and its very good sensor also.
Swap out the Redragon mouse for the steelseries Rival 100 if you can sacrifice some buttons: [link]
Thank you. Which material does it consist of ? Looks like simple rubber to me. Also I plan to order directly from Amazon([link]). Do they only sell the fixed models or are there any flawed under them ?
Steelseries Rival 100
Right around the $30 price point give or take a few bucks depending on your choice of color.
I have only heard good things about the steelseries rival 100. I almost got it, but then the G502 went on sale for $40. It seems a little small though, so keep that in mind. Best part is, its only $25 depending on what color you get it in.
~~Steelseries Rival 100, it's on sale right now for $23.90, and it's probably the best you're gonna get with that budget. But even then, it's a pretty solid mouse for the price it's at right now.~~
Refurbished SteelSeries Rival 300 for $20, ergo right hand mouse. After looking a bit more I found this, which I have myself. It's pretty good given the price, although it's refurbished. Solid sensor, the buttons are not bad, and the shape is pretty safe. The one that I suggested before (and crossed out) has a pretty outdated sensor, which is my main gripe with it.
This one [link] :) thanks
Not sure what your budget is but you can get a Rival 100 for $28, and they also have one in amazon warehouse for $20...
SteelSeries Rival 100
I've got the Red Dragon as a backup mouse, and it massively sucks. Get a Steelseries Rival 100 [link]
This is the one I use, and it is great:
This one seems decent: Steelseries Rival

Okay, so since you are playing "competitive games": this matters, if you arent than all that matters is the luxury standards you will accept, in your case you want a mouse with the best sensor available for your price. which looks like 36$ (I dont know how much shipping will cost) Keyboard however does not exactly matter as much as long as it suits your needs and modern day keyboards do not have as bad ghosting anymore that it wouldnt hold you back, (unless you are playing starcraft with a million keybinds and apm) so any usb keyboard you want is fine, Mouses are usually a little more expensive for the added advantage they will give you in competitive gaming, but generally nowadays top mouses are ones with a 3310/3360/3366 sensors in them but there are a few which are still good for cheaper options such as the 3059SS, common unknown brandcheap amazon/ebay mouses will not feature any of these sensors and present a noticable disadvantage in game when compared to one of these and lack quality, Sorry for the rant.
Smaller mouse, popular loved, decent sensor, good price!
Bit bigger mouse, 2nd best sensor on the market, top 40 rated mouse, Newer, on sale!
1$ over budget [link]
If you can spare a couple more dollars I highly suggest you take the G402 fast. as I doubt this sale will last too long, but if your budget is really tight the SSR100 is not a bad choice! :)
Gaming equipment doesn't have to be expensive thankfully
Currently using this mainly because there's so many sensitivity options
Depends on your price range. If you're willing to spend a bit but not $80 then there's the Logitect G402 which is $35 and is like a simpler version of the G502. There's also the SteelSeries Rival 100 It's $30, and is a very basic but reliable mouse but kinda pricy for what it is though. While I have no personal experience with these next two mice they're both very cheap and have good reviews and have good specs. The HAVIT HV-MS672 which is $12 and looks kinda ugly in my opinion but the reviews for the newer version seem to praise it quite a bit but there's no way to set it to a solid color. Also the Redragon M601 which is $14 and has a bit better specs than the HAVIT and also has adjustable weights for it if you prefer a heavier or lighter mouse. Though no way to turn off the lights on it, which some have said is annoying.
It depends. If you want to use it for FPS games, forget it. Get a Rival 100 with a nice mouse pad for $55.

EDIT: If you want it for MMOs or MOBAs, I can't help you, I don't have experience with that.
Is 35euro also okay?
steelseries rival 100
Logitech G300S - $40
SteelSeries Rival 100 - $44
Corsair Sabre RGB - $50
SteelSeries Rival 300 - $60
the corsair saber is only $50 on newegg
the final mouse is a driverless mouse with one of the highest quality sensors you can buy. they save money by using an OEM housing. they are some of the lightest mice you can buy. every member of the finalmouse team is legendary eagle level or higher. its made by esports players for esports players.
the havit and red dragon look like ok entry level mouse. the build quality is suspect and they use unknown sensors. from a purely bang/buck they might be your best option as they are so cheap they only have to work.
if you want something a little nicer without breaking the bank, the corsair m65($45) or logitech g502($60) are great large mice.
the steelseries rival 100($34) is as budget as i can recommend. great build quality, and a great sensor for the money
SteelSeries Rival 100 is supposed to be really good for £29.99
CM Storm Quickfire is good keyboard. I would also recommend the steelseries rival 100 for the mouse. I have the Rival 300, and it works great. And basically the Rival 100 is a bit downgraded 300. It has up to 4000 DPI instead of up to 6500 DPI and the side button is not good as the 300 one, and the shape maybe bit different but that's about it. It has RGB lights, customizable buttons and DPI settings. When you play CS:GO it has a lighting profile where if you are running out of money, ammo, or your health is low, the light changes from Green to Red. think you would enjoy it.
better than the Rival 100?
> i was trying to buy a steelseries rival 100 for 2 months now and i cant find someone who has it
in the US?
You can find the EVGA Torq x5 around 30$ Amazing mouse for the price tbh.
The Steelseries Rival 100 is around that and i just looked and this is 25$ right now
Color is ugly as sin but meh.
The Roccat kone pure military Great mouse and can me found for 30-40$
it seems the Steelseries Rival 100 would be a better deal
What kind of games do you plan on playing? If you're looking to get into competitive gaming I'd recommend grabbing a Steel series rival 100 it fits your budget. Though if you can stretch the extra $30 you should really get the 300 model.
if you're looking to get a good keyboard I'd highly recommend this one as well for competitive gaming. $10 more than your budget. But this keyboard is amazing for competitive gaming.
Also I agree with /u/Shouvanik, if you're planning on doing casual gaming get the G502. Though stay away from it if you're planning on doing competitive gaming.
I'm an LEM on csgo and I dropped a few ranks because of the G502 RGB and I'm switching back to the SS Rival. Though I still use my G502 for games like call of duty and other casual titles.
edit : fixed broken link
Those two are good mice that are at the top of your budget. Pro players use both.
If you want a cheaper mouse I know a guy with this one and he likes it.
I recently purchased a Deathadder Chroma and I love it. If you wanna drop another 15 dollars I recommend it.
You can get the steel series rival on amazon for $39.99, and it is prime if you have it. [link]
I have this mouse and love it, it is rgb.
