You'll forget it uses batteries! - SteelSeries Rival 3 Wireless Mouse

Thanks to SteelSeries for sponsoring today's video! Check out the SteelSeries Rival 3 Wireless at
What makes a wireless gaming mouse great? Is it because it's lightweight, offers great sensor accuracy, or maybe great battery life? What happens if you found all 3 and it's comfortable to hold. Also, yes David shaved his beard. We're all sad about it.

    I recently got this mouse on sale for $40 and I know it's on Amazon right now for $45 and I gotta say it's the best mouse I've used. I don't usually spend too much on mice because I don't see it a worth it but I decided to give myself a budget of 50-70 and I ended choosing this and it's worked out really well so far. I have a little larger than average hands and it fits perfectly fine in them so people with little large hands should be fine. also, I've been using it for 2 weeks so far on 1000 polling rate and batteries haven't depleted yet (I'm on my pc an average of 6-8 hours a day for homework, classes, and gaming). id say I have easily put in 90+ hours so far into the mouse and batteries are totally fine. this is just my overall experience with the mouse. I don't know how others feel about it but I say it's worth a buy and if you don't like it then you can return it. btw sorry if my English is bad, I was born and raised in the united states but my parents are immigrants and English is my second language.

    Ok but, g305 is lighter, has an insanely good reputation, COLORS (jokingly), and has one of the largest modding communities for any mouse, not to mention you can last 250 hours with 1 AA. Also you can get a AAA to AA adapter making it way even lighter.

    you'll forget it uses batteries!----- so, 5 hrs of average everyday use , have to change after 2.5 months. you can forget that that it uses batteries because over your head the brick is falling for 2.5 months, only then it will hit hard enough for some one (the title maker) to realize that batteries run out eventually.

    BEWARE: Specs are all wrong and all none of reviewers are mentioning it that in real life, a single battery lasts only 3-4 days. All tested on a single battery, 1000hz polling rate, LED completely turned off with 8h-12h of daily use. In comparison, I get more than month on my old G305 on the same USB port. Btw. Logitech G305 has way worse specs. Realistically battery life should be compared to the old G900. Anyone gaming would be most probably use a single battery so hope this helps.

    I used to be Steelseries loyal fan, even when friend was against it and hate it, and I have their mouse over time from Icemat headset/glass mousepad to first Steelseries Sensei. Sorry but if it have the same slow/hard/crappy mouse clicks, that make you loose 1v1 aim fight around the corner like Sensei Ten. A old Zowie, or any other mice with fast response click will do the job better. Good sensor, for tracking and flicking, but everything fails. I got Sensei Ten before all review on release. But only disappointed. There is so many mice companies out there, that do a better job.

    Looks like they fixed the stupid sticky pads on the sides which is a big bonus (tip if you have a 310, just remove them!), middle mouse button is still the tiny mess from the 310 and the body actually looks a bit smaller than the 310. I wonder if this is better than the Corsair Harpoon Wireless RGB

    Nice review. You touched on all of the points that make a great mouse, but there's one thing I can't stand.... When you bounced the mouse on the pad, I could hear the button rattle and that's a big no go for me. I want my buttons to stay solidly in place when I lift and move. An accidental click can be a game ender.
