Gaming mice come in various price tiers and we are often too caught up in the bells and whistle featured on flagship models.

However, designing an affordable gaming mouse brings with it an unique set of challenges as tradeoffs occur and manufacturers have to strike a balance between cost and performance.

Since it uses the tried and true optical technology, in theory, it should have very little to no acceleration. The sensor isn’t the Rival’s only highlight; It also [...]
