SteelSeries Rival 650 Wireless: Wireless Gaming Mouse with Dual Sensor Reviewed

With the “Rival 650 Wireless”, gaming specialist SteelSeries introduced the first wireless mouse with a quick-loading mechanism. Not only this announcement makes the common user curious about what the new mouse has to offer in practice. We also wanted to know what we could expect – after all, SteelSeries is raising hopes for an extremely interesting peripheral device with the announcements for the Rival 650 Wireless. We have tested the mouse consistently.

Design and Processing

Optically the mouse does not knock over connoisseurs of SteelSeries. It can only be distinguished externally from the “Rival 600” already presented some time ago by the missing cable and therefore has the typical SteelSeries gaming look.

The appearance is simple, but not boring. So the mouse knows how to draw attention to itself through its corners and edges. The RGB lighting, divided into eight zones, also provides a noticeable loosening of the otherwise rather simple appearance.

Altogether SteelSeries manages the balancing act between eye-catching exterior and discreet elegance well. Our assessment of the design of the Rival 650 Wireless is particularly positive when compared with products from other manufacturers. SteelSeries doesn’t keep the body of the mouse too simple and unobtrusive, so the new mouse differs pleasantly from the countless other gaming devices that are increasingly focusing on everyday usability in terms of design.

The mouse is processed as well as usual and we have no criticism to express.
