I bought this mouse while trying to look for a replacement for my World of Warcraft Cataclysm Steelseries mouse(the round palm area made it tolling to grip after hours of usage). So naturally I looked for the most rigid looking mouse I could find: The R.A.T. series by Mad-Catz.
The mouse itself was VERY sturdy and felt durable. The finish on the mouse made it very hard to scratch and would not absorb sweat easily. The cable of the is also very durable.
Fell in love with the mouse as soon as I saw it in maximum PC. Very stylish, it worked well for the first 18 months, then the sensor starting to lose track occasionally while gaming, VERY frustrating. Eventually the frame also started to bend from repeated lifting and lowering the mouse on the pad. This caused it to wobble when mouse clicking, making your cursor jump. Very innovative mouse but unfortunately, had quite a few problems.
I had this mouse for a bit now and it is a really good one. Came super fast and in a perfect condition. The only small issue I had is when you (for the first time)have your hand on it for a bit you would put a little weight on the bottom and the front of the mouse would lift for like a millimeter and the cursor lag a bit because the sensor is not 100% touching the pad. But, just another hand position would fix the problem perfectly.
Initially I thought this mouse was great, but quickly learned the truth about the supposedly amazing gaming mouse. If it wasnt for the 2 product breaking bugs bellow, this would be the mouse for almost every gamer.
wasn't a fan of my friends cyborg mouse but after using multiple $20 cheap-o's I decided to give this another go. And I am glad i did, lots of options and tweaks you can do to it. Only downside is that it can take awhile to get adjusted to your likings.
This would be a good mouse if it lasted. May have had a defective unit, and I had it replaced with a diff. mouse as they were out of stock. Love how you can change the extension on the mouse to suit your grip style. It also has a great clicking feel and what else can I say. Great product. Minus one star for busting.
