STEELSERIES Releases the Rival 700, First Modular Mouse
Remember when a mouse was just a mouse? Pepperidge Farm remembers! To be far, Pepperidge farm still thinks a mouse is a furry rodent in a barn. STEELSERIES has been known for their high-end peripherals so being the first to introduce a modular mouse is no surprise. What is a surprising is how far the mouse has come from it’s humble beginnings of track and ball. With an OLED display to notify you of in-game events and a modular design that puts a new spin on customization, the Rival 700 certainly takes gaming mice to a new level. I can’t say that I would ever look at my mouse enough to see the notifications, but if I can put a fun design on that screen, that would make me pretty happy. Customization always seems like a good thing though and the RGB lighting is always welcome in my book. Take a look at the details below and check out our forums to tell us what you think of the features in the Rival 700!
