Steelseries Rival 710 Review – This Is What a Feature-Rich Gaming Mouse Looks Like

With the “Rival 710” SteelSeries wants to combine the advantages of the “Rival 700” with the “TrueMove3” sensor and thus provide completely new gaming experiences. Find out what the mouse has to offer and whether a purchase is worth it in our test.

Design and Workmanship

The Rival 710 presents itself in a design dominated by ergonomic features. It is curved and crooked due to the additional thumb rest. Otherwise it looks quite simple. Only the OLED display, on which own pictures and GIFs can be faded in, and the illuminated SteelSeries logo set accents.

Compared to other gaming mice, the model looks quite large, but not clunky or immobile. If we lift it up, we also notice the enormous weight. Like its direct predecessor, it is a real heavyweight, which could be a disadvantage in practical use – but definitely not necessary.

In our test the mouse lies very well in the hand. The ergonomic properties, which will be examined in more detail later, are immediately noticeable. The feel is pleasant, we never have the feeling that the mouse lies badly in the hand. Even slipping of the hands is never to be feared – the Rival 710 has exactly the right grip.
