Hi Guys

Sadly I have some bad news this morning, SteelSeries have contacted me to highlight a potential issue with the stock of Rival 700 units.

They have highlighted a problem on a small number of units where the one of the detachable cables is not at the correct angle to be inserted into the mouse.

The mouse will still work but this falls below their quality standards for their products and as such they are removing them from sale.

What to do:

If you haven't purchased a Rival 700 yet then you can do via pre order still. we are expecting a delivery on April 19th that will be units unaffected by this recall.

If you have already purchased a Rival 700 from Overclockers UK then you have the following options:
  1. RMA the mouse for a full refund.
  2. contact us and highlight that you would like a new mouse cable which we will ship to you as soon as we receive them.

I must highlight that the Rival 700 will still work with this USB connector, it may just have a tight fit or feel difficult to remove if your unit is one of the few that is affected. This recall is purely precautionary from SteelSeries.

I would suggest that any customers impacted by this, post here if you are unsure and I will try to offer guidance on how to proceed.

Could I get new cables even though I won mine?

Got mine yesterday (happy to report no issues with the wire).

It is a lovely mouse, liking the tactile stuff in Dota. I can understand some concern over the weight as it is quite heavy, but it slides well and to be honest i have quickly gotten used to is.

Received the mouse on Tuesday, No issues with the cable at all. Very happy with the mouse, feels nice and I think the weight is perfect.

This makes sense now why they looked sold out all of a sudden, wish I would have ordered now before they were removed from sale as I wouldn't have minded waiting for a replacement cable and it's going to take 3 weeks before Overclockers gets them back it stock again, looking at the pics above though it does look good so it will be worth the wait...

Quality service. Something for other companies to look to as an example

Heroic service there, I'll pop the order details into the customer services part then :)

As a side note, mine seems alright I think? It's a bit tough to remove the cable but other than that it's generally fine!

*bump*

Is there any word as to when the custom backs are going to be released?

Looks like their idea of custom backs was to release a 3D printer file where you design and print your own.......just add 3D printer :rolleyes:
