SteelSeries Rival 600 Mouse Review

Rating: 7.0.

While SteelSeries has a good reputation for its gaming mice, there's one thing its mice have always been missing: lift-off distance adjustment. Until now, that is, as the Rival 600 boasts a secondary sensory dedicated to lift-off distance (LOD) which can be tweaked to adjust the LOD between 0.5mm to 2mm. With a new weights system as well, is the Rival 600 worth the £80 asking price? Let's find out.

Based on the TrueMove 3 sensor that debuted with the Rival 310 and Sensei 310, the new Rival 600 incorporates the TrueMove 3+ sensor which includes a dedicated secondary sensor for depth-sensing. That gives users fine control over the LOD of the mouse, one thing SteelSeries' mice have always been missing. The Rival 600 also has a slightly different shape to its predecessors, and there's a removable cable as well. Just how good is it?
