Solid mouse, chews through batteries too fast.
The mouse is solid, both the mouse's dongle and bluetooth work fine and it feels good to use. It chews through batteries at a crazy rate. I'm replacing them every week or so with normal Duracells. I'm not getting anywhere near the claimed 400 hours. I've gone through 20 AAAs in less than two months....

The Best Claw Grip Mouse - Spring 2022
For a budget pick, the best mouse for claw grip that we've tested is the SteelSeries Rival 3. This wired-only model has a high hump on the back and a symmetrical shape well-suited for all hand sizes using a claw grip.

Upcoming Steelseries' Lightweight Mice
I picked up a Rival 100 once at Walmart on clearance for like, 5 bucks. I was surprised at how well the shaped for me for fingertip grip, but you could certainly see that it only cost like, 20 bucks at retail. Then Rival 3 came out not long after and for $25, I figured what the hell. They def stepped their game up on that one, for sure.

Wired and Wireless Rival 3 feel different
I have both the wired and wireless version and there are some noticeable differences. - The left and right buttons on the wireless have a bassier sound and a nicer feel. - The side buttons on the wireless are lighter and this caused me to accidentally press them on a few occasions. - The scroll whee...

What is a good budget mouse for gaming ?
Steelseries rival 3 is a good mouse, really durable and comfortable too
SteelSeries Rival 3
The SteelSeries Rival 3 is a great wired gaming mouse. It feels very comfortable to hold, and any hand size should be able to easily reach all the buttons when using claw grip, while only small hands will have a difficult time with fingertip grip. While the max CPI isn't as high as many other gaming mice, it's still likely more than high enough for most people, and the sensor is mostly consistent whether you move the mouse fast or slow

SteelSeries Rival 3 and Apex 3 - The Perfect Combo For Under $100!
The switches are heavier versus my cherry Browns by ducky, so that was one major difference, as I couldn't be as fast with the apex 3, as I can with my floor mellow or ducky keyboards. But the sound profile was nice and quiet as advertised and so the mouse. I can easily recommend it's a complete bare-bones package that is very competitive at $ 29, while the keyboard is a bit more tricky because g
