Razer deathadder v2 or Steelseries rival 600?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So i've been using a steelseries rival 310 for a couple years now and started to experience a double click issue with the left mouse button and now I'm in the market for a new mouse and don't really know which one i should choose since i don't have any options to try them out before buying. I have pretty wide hands 19cm in length but about 10,5cm wide so i mostly like larger ergonomic mice and I'm a palm grip kinda guy. So now I'm wondering which one would be better to get Razer deathadder v2 or steelseries rival 600? Since all my peripherals are steelseries right now I'm drawn to a Rival 600, but is it still good in 2020? Because Deathadder v2 seems to have better specs but I have never even owned any of Razer products and by just the looks of it, it doesn't look as comfortable as Rival 600. So does anyone have any advice, maybe you had a chance to compare those two? Any help is appreciated guys :)

What are you gonna use it for? gaming i assume but what kind? i personally prefer lighter mice, currently using model o and really enjoying it, but there is the model d or something from g skoll for example if you prefer palm grip

Well I mainly play apex or csgo, i was looking into a model D but, just not sure how durable it would be in the long run,because of the hole punch desing and switches are only rated for 20m clicks and the whole design is a little off putting, since the way the holes are punched on it kinda resembles a penis to me, not sure if its just me or if it is intended that way since it's a model D :D

lmao never looked at it that way before xDDDD

20 mil clicks is fine imo, and if you don't like the design the model o is also nice, or g skoll as well. For fps games it's a lot nicer with lighter mice. You could go something like gpro wireless or razer viper ultimate

Well where I live g wolves skoll is not available and with international shipping it would get more expensive than it should be, I don't really like the model O or gpro wireless because i think it wouldn't fit my grip too well, and razor viper seems like the side buttons are kinda difficult to use while game since they are so small and not sticking out at all. otherwise razor viper would look like a great mouse to get, but i think it may not be for me

If you could it's always nice to try them a store, but i still think model d would be good if you like to palm it, i've had my model o since last june (the first version not the one with fixed cable) and it's still like new, if you just clean it now and then it's fine (you should clean ur mouse anyways xd)

You might be right there, but I just don't want a D in my hand while gaming :D that's why I'm leaning towards those two I mentioned before, since the price is not that much different and steelseries or razor just seem more durable, steelseries is on a heavier side I admit being 96g without additional weights, but deathadder is about 82g i believe and that doesn't seem like too heavy since my current mouse is 88g i believe, it's just that i don't know if deathadder going to be comfortable.

The deathadder is pretty comfortable, i had one before but that one broke after like a month xD

What happened to it that it broke so quickly? :D

The left mouse button was a bit weird and the scroll wheel stopped scrolling xd

I still think the model d would be better if you don't like the shape of model o, even tho it looks like it does lmao

if it's the best mouse you can get the looks shouldn't be the main factor, and the durability is fine if you don't death grip your mouse and eat over it xd 
20 mil clicks might not be a lot for a league player but you don't need to click that much in fps games

I've been using the Rival 600 for a while now. I also have fairly large hands, so I find its shape and extra height over other mice really great, the buttons all feel good and you can get it decently heavy with the weight system Steelseries has implemented.

Unfortunately though, I just got a replacement a couple of weeks ago, after I had to RMA my original one, because of the following: scroll wheel started bugging out after probably around 6 months, the rubber sides started to peel off and all the sticky glue underneath started pouring out and eventually the left click failed (either double clicking or not clicking at all). It's also not the first time I've had problems with Steelseries, as I've had the original Rival a few years ago and the same scroll wheel issue happened and I had a similar issue related to the rubber sides.

I can't say a whole lot about the Deathadder though, as I've only briefly used one for a couple of times. Mostly I just find the clicks too light/easy to press, the shape is not as good as the Rival's (for me personally) and Razer's software just seems too much like bloatware to me.

Yeah I heard alot about those sides pealing off and getting stick from the glue and that's one of my concerns about getting one. And I heard that razer software isn't good, but I believe you can configure it once and delete it later since it saves it all on the firmware and I believe the rubber sides are built in somehow there so they shouldn't have those problems and with optical mechanical switches shouldn't be getting the double click problems. That's what is attractive about razer mice, those switches, good sensor and that side grips shouldn't be coming off, ofcourse biggest con is the software i believe and I don't know about the rest of build quality and comfort of it.
