  • Summary: I have an all new build that i spent over 9 grand on in total, and i may have gotten lucky or unlucky by having problems with only 2 things; my raid card and this mouse. My problems with this mouse include the battery dying in the middle of games of league of legends or really any online game. As well as the battery not making proper connection (thats my guess because removing and putting the battery back in fixes it.) and not powering the laser to actually work.
  • Pros: great feel, great customizability, nice buttons
  • Cons: no spot to see battery life other than in driver, random issues.

  • Summary: The RAT 9 is definitely on the costly side for a mice. However I feel that the investement is worth it as it will be a long time from this one to the next one and I will probably purchase this model again. The thumbwheel makes volume adjustment very quickly so I don't even have to use the keyboard shortcuts during gameplay. The customization on the RAT 9 is amazing and fits well to my big hands and the wireless functionality is great.
  • Pros: Very adjustable especially for my big hands, Really glidy and good weight customization, thumb will very conveniant for volume control, easily set different dpi settings for different purposes and fast switching in between with the middle button, wireless is very clean, makes my desk look a lot tidier, 2 batteries for continuous play
  • Cons: Sometimes the vertical or horizontal axis fail for short times probably some kind of lag between the mouse and the wireless reciever

  • Summary: I have had some trouble with the batteries falling asleep or something so I have to take it out and put it back in. this only happens when i leave it without use for a couple hours. though it only takes a 10 second in and out to get it back to work. all in all if you want a mouse that feels great in your hand and will last forever get this!
  • Pros: Extreme combustibility, really comfortable to use, long battery life (and has 2 batteries so you always have power), really durable, everything works as advertised
  • Cons: fiddly battery (I explain in the description)

  • Summary: I've had this mouse for quite some time now and I have had no complaints. Every now and then it seems that a spec of dust or a small crumb will prevent it from functioning, but nothing a quick wipe won't fix. This mouse can also hold 3 profiles which seems like it can come in handy if you need macros. This mouse allows for weights to be added or removed as well which, surprisingly, can change the whole experience of the mouse.
  • Pros: Fits any hand, Excellent programming software, Looks awesome, Hot-swap batteries
  • Cons: Could have more programmable buttons

  • Summary: Very good wireless gaming mouse. I never notice any lag during Battlefield 3 game play. Battery will last a good gaming day 6-7 hours and but you can rapidly swap the lithium battery with the one charged in the base station. The battery take 3 hours to charge and you get up to 7 hours of continuous game play. The customization of the mouse make it confortable, and make it fit your hand perfectly. It won't fit you if you have small hands. Recommanded... Have fun !
  • Pros: -Fully customizable, -No lag, -5600 DPI, -Precision aim button let you temporary adjust DPI on the fly (ex.For sniper)
  • Cons: Battery autonomy, Kind of too sensible ( Dust or cat hair interfear with the mouse precision, once clean, everything is back to normal), Price

  • Summary: What sets this mouse apart from other gaming mouses is this mouses ability to be customized by the user. I found this to be very difficult and frustrating, but worth it as it is only a one time thing. Other than that, I loved the build quality. The mouse is built with high quality materials from top to bottom. The metal is nice and thick and the plastic pieces are sturdy and have a great textile feeling to them.
  • Pros: High quality build, DPI switching capability, Savable profiles, Highly customization, Wireless but with fast response times
  • Cons: No dock?

  • Summary: Great mouse, the customizable grips are extremely comfortable for any of the various "grip styles". It's visually striking and I have not noticed any input lag due to the wireless connection. My only major gripe is the battery life. This is remedied with the second battery but it does lead to very frequent battery swaps: about once a day depending on use.
  • Pros: Feels great in your hand, Awesome design, Second battery for continuous use
  • Cons: Short battery life

  • Summary: Love the customizability of almost everything on the mouse itself. Bigger hands or smaller hands or whatever you need for your style of grip. Weights are great to add or reduce the amount of weight you normally like for gaming. The head shot button is great for cutting the dpi in half so you can get those kils quickly. My concerns are the huge price for the item and the short time the battery lasts.
  • Pros: Love the changable grips and positions for the thumb, palm rest and pinky. Changeable weights are also nice, if you want a different feel.
  • Cons: Expensive and batteries don't last as long as you might like.

  • Summary: Coolest looking mouse ever. Functions very well, and the "headshot" button is awesome for FPS games. Despite the customizable features, I find this mouse terribly uncomfortable for a palm grip. Finger/claw grip is fine. Also, There is no horizontal scroll in the middle wheel. You have to make a macro for the thumbwheel to scroll sideways :( If you want it for the looks, get it. If you want a comfortable mouse, get a Sidewinder X8, RAZER etc.
  • Pros: Looks awesome., "headshot" button, very smooth
  • Cons: Battery life is brutal, Thumb buttons are somewhat uncomfortable, Non replaceable feet, Software is terrible
