Product Overview

SteelSeries Rival 650 Wireless is a high-performance wireless gaming mouse with a unique dual sensor setup, customizable weights, and 8-zone RGB lighting.
The sensor setup in the Rival 650 Wireless includes not only a primary TrueMove3+ optical sensor but also a Depth Sensing optical sensor. Together, they allow the Rival 650 Wireless to track better particularly on lift off. This ultra-fast mouse combines 1ms latency with TrueMove3's 12000 max CPI for high speed tracking.
The mouse's customizable weights comprise eight 4g weights and eight slots, making it possible to configure not only the weight but also the center of gravity.
As a wireless mouse, the Rival 650 Wireless also comes with a decent 24h battery life as well as fast charging that tops up 10+ hours of use in just 15 minutes.
It is essentially the wireless version of the SteelSeries Rival 600.

  • Fast response time and programmable buttons
  • Built-in support for a wide range of games
Cons
  • No removable weights
  • No wireless charging

Reviewers from rtings have found:
The SteelSeries Rival 650 is a great office mouse, but it's too big for people with small hands to use with any grip type. It has a lot of buttons you can reprogram, which helps with your workflow. It's wireless, keeping your setup clean, but you can only use it with its proprietary receiver. The mouse is disappointing for ultra-light gaming.
Pros
  • Extremely comfortable
  • Outstanding sensor with wide CPI range and low lift-off distance
  • Superb click latency
  • Extremely comfy
  • Incredible sensor
  • High polling rate
Cons
  • Limited to only three side buttons
  • No Bluetooth support

Reviewers from techradar have found:
At 121 grams, the Rival 650 offers a nice heft in the hand, and it can be customized by popping off each side. RGB lighting is split into four areas, with eight total zones, as two strips on each side can be configured with three separate colors. The primary mouse buttons are split from the body and offer consistent tactile feel using SteelSeries Switches rated for 60 million clicks.
Pros
  • Accurate tracking
  • Solid build quality
  • Easy to set up
Cons
  • Nothing in particular
