Pros and cons

According to our mouse expert
  • With 6 thumb buttons on the left hand side and 4 buttons on the left and right mouse button, you have up to 10 extra actions and skills at your disposal.
  • The slidelock on the underside of the mouse locks the lower 2 thumb buttons, which is great when you need extra support.
  • The rubber grips give you great control when making fast movements.
  • The buttons next to the main left and right mouse buttons take some getting used to before you can use them effectively.
  • To program the macros, you need the external software from the Steelseries website.

The 10 extra buttons around the left and right mouse buttons and your thumb will ensure that your skillshots, macros and ultimates will be flying around your opponent fast.

Quick reactions are made easy with help of the rubber grip that gives you the control you need to defeat your opponent. The Steelseries software lets you program your own complex macros into which you can also process keyboard attacks.

    Highly recommended if you are looking for many buttons and h

    • lots of buttons!
    • easy software to configure
    • Colors can be completely set
    • Better for big hands
    • no direct game profiles available a la logitech

    I was looking for a new mouse to replace my logitech G500 and G700s mice. Because I was looking for some extra buttons on a mouse, my choice was quite limited. Normally I would always go to Logitech for mice, but their current offering no longer gives wired mice with 5-6 buttons on the side. That's why I ended up with the Steelseries Rival 500. A great mouse, with many options, but more suitable for people with a large hand (in terms of gloves I have a medium hand and it is just too small)

    first find out which games are supported by steelserie
    • Very comfortable
    • no delay
    • does not support all mmorpg

    Fits well in the hand, no lag. Unfortunately it doesn't support wow. The largest game in its genre and for which the mouse is also partly sold (Moba/MMO).

    very nice mouse
    • High dpi
    • Fits well in the hand
    • Many options to customize the mouse

    I had a madcatz before this and had to switch to another brand because madcatz had stopped. I'm very happy that I chose this steelseries, I like it even better than the madcatz I had before.
