Overall, the SteelSeries Rival 3 receives mixed reviews. Some users find it comfortable and well-built, while others find it lacking in ergonomics and quality. The wireless version is praised for its build quality, but criticized for its battery life. The Rival 3 is generally recommended as a good budget option, but some users prefer its predecessor, the Rival 600, for its premium feel and detachable cord.
