Product Overview

SteelSeries Rival 710 is a premium wired gaming mouse with an OLED side display powered by SteelSeries' TrueMove3 optical sensor with true 1-to-1 tracking.
SteelSeries boasts that the Rival 710 is the only mouse in the industry to feature an OLED screen. It is used for visual notifications and in-game statistics. Along the OLED display is the inclusion of customizable tactile feedback for notifications.
Other than these added features, however, the Rival 710 is virtually indistinguishable from the Rival 310 introduced a year earlier. It uses the same TrueMove3 optical sensor, SteelSeries' mechanical switches rated for 60 million clicks, and 2-zone RGB lighting.
A more advanced alternative by SteelSeries without the "buzz" of OLED display and tactile feedback is the Rival 600.

Reviewers from pcmag have found the following***:
The SteelSeries Rival 710 can be a lot of fun, especially if you're a gadget person. Having fewer lights lets the OLED display and other customizations shine. With 10 vibrations and the ability to customize their length and power, this kind of haptic feedback could be great.

Pros
  • Sleek design
  • Haptic feedback
  • High-quality OLED display
Cons
  • No support for a wider range of apps
  • Limited customization options

Reviewers from techradar have found the following***:
The SteelSeries Rival 710 has a soft touch material covering almost the entire unit. This makes it one of the most comfortable mice we've used in a long time, especially for those long gaming sessions. There aren't many buttons here, though. Just eight – with three programmable buttons on the side and a CPI switch behind the mouse wheel. The sensor is limited to 12,000 counts per inch, which is lower than the 16,000 we've seen in many other high-end mice.

Pros
  • Extremely accurate sensor
  • Haptic engine is great
Cons
  • No color support
  • No wireless charging
