Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking

Pro Aluminum housing
The M60 features a solid aluminum body at its core for a superior build quality.
Pro 8 programmable buttons
There are 8 fully programmable buttons on the mouse. This includes a 'sniper button' next to the thumb, which by default toggles a shifted DPI to allow for more accurate sniping while gaming.
Pro Adjustable weight and center of gravity
There are 3 removable weights in a triangle formation, allowing you to change not only the weight, but also the center of gravity.
Pro Great for those with large hands and using claw grip
Pro Comfortable to handle
This mouse is very well balanced in weight, size and ergonomics making for a mouse that is easy and comfortable to handle.
Pro Great value for money
At $39 the Rival gaming mouse has a great balance between build quality and value for money.
Pro Highly accurate
The Steelseries Rival gaming mouse has a built in Pixart PMW3310 optical sensor that offers great tracking control. There's no angle-snapping, hardware acceleration, or jitter.
Pro Great accompanying software suite
Steelseries uses a software suite called Engine 3 that is low resource and used to customize their gaming mouse options.
Con Braided cable
The braided cable is stiff and may catch on the mouse pad on a regular basis.
Con Too light
The 3 weights and aluminum frame are just not heavy enough. If they were to add a weighted sled for more weight instead of 3 plugs, they could make it comfortable for a wider range of people. Satisfying both users who like light or heavy mice.
Con Finnish rubs off
The rubberized texture comes off the thumb rest and ring finger side around 2 months in. The slick plastic underneath is not a sure grip when moving around in game. Considering this is a gaming class mouse you would think they would use a textured finished material not a coating.
Con Laser sensor
The included Avago ADNS-9500 laser sensor is going to have trouble with acceleration.
Con Poor middle mouse button fail
Middle mouse button click stopped working reliably after about 2 months of negligible gaming.
Con Not extremely ergonomic
Not entirely fit for claw grips with small hands, and gets uncomfortable after a while.
Con Rubber grips get worn out very quickly
Con Rubber grips get slippery with sweaty hands
When using the mouse for long duration's the sweat from the users hands can make the rubber side grips slippery.
