    The TrueMove3 sensor is based on the a Pixart 3360 and promises "true 1-to-1 tracking" up to 3500 CPI. The Rival 310 is slightly smaller than the Rival 300 and has the same new textured g...

    Great sensor, shape looks fine, but above all - low weight! Could be the best gaming mouse yet!

    I don't get how they can claim it's the first mouse with true 1 to 1 tracking. As far as I know this is just the same as the Delta Zero technology of Logitech, for example the Logitech G303 uses Delta Zero with Pixart 3366 sensor and they state:
    "For maximum responsiveness, the PMW3366 sensor has zero smoothing or filtering across the entire DPI range."
    So that seems like 1 to 1 tracking to me, can't see how Steelseries can claim they were the first to do it?!

    There is no true 1:1 mouse out of the box. Because translating distance moved by mouse to cursor varies in dependence of screen size.

    If they mean that 1cm upwards movement moves cursor up same amount like 1cm movement to side does move it sideways, then it is again false statement as there are hundreds mouses with variable movement ratios which user can set as they like.

    And if they meant no acceleration, than they are quite many years too late to show.
    So either way I say: "it is false advertisement".

    Just marketing.

    In the end it's just a rehash of the Sensei / Rival with a far superior sensor. It's an upgrade for current users, just not when coming from a newer Logitech mouse.

    Though I'm getting one mostly because I vastly prefer the Sensei shape over the G Pro shape.

    Yeah, the things companies say to try & sell products hey, they'd be lucky to have just one toe over the line on the good side of truth or lie!

    So, for someone who's using the Logitech 502 that's starting to act up, would this be an upgrade or should I just get another 502?

    I'd recommend to try other mouse, even different brand. See how it goes.
    Just make sure to get one that being more or less recommended by most reviewers.

    If it does things with cursor, just clean it.
    If buttons getting bad, just replace them. Those are much cheaper alternatives to buying new mouse.

    I do fix my mouses till they can't be fixed anymore. I fixed broken wheel 4 times, exchanged cable once on 1st Roccat Kone. And I did replace MB3 switch (MMB-wheel) on Kone XTD Optical + removed aging original painting and did my own.

    I don't think it would be an upgrade, the G502 has the same Delta Zero technology & same sensor as the G303 that I talked about in a previous post in this thread - it already has perfect tracking with zero acceleration and zero smoothing. If you really like the shape of the G502 I'd just get another one (or clean/repair it if you can). On a seperate thought don't Logitech products have really long warranties & I think I've heard stories of them repairing/replacing products even outside of warranty!

    It's more of a side-grade performance wise. It's using pretty much the same sensor. If you prefer the G502 shape, just get another G502.

    (just received mine, the Sensei 310)

    nah, its always better to experience with other mouses.
    I loved heavy big mouses, but G403 changed that aspect.

    I love how they never lose even a single word in their advertising about click delay. Which probably means it's horrible.

    In my opinion it's the ugliest mouse I've ever seen...

    I have the original Steelseries Rival, which is basically a Rival 300 with slightly different padding style. Same sensor etc. I think it's great! The Rival 310 replaces the 300, and the Sensei 310 looks identical performance wise to the Rival 310, but as a different grip style. Steelseries states the Rival 300 as Palm/Claw grip, and the Sensei as Claw/Finger-Tip. If you like having you hand arched on the mouse the Sensei 310 looks like the ideal mouse, if you have your hand flat on the mouse then the Rival 310 would probably be more ideal. I'm just assuming that of course, without actually seeing the two in person. Considering the Rival 310 is the same style as the Rival and Rival 300, I can at least agree that it is great for the flat style hand use :).

    It's actually pretty much on par with Logitech this time around.
