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'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.
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
Summary: Very useful and comfortable after conforming it to your specific hand size. Ideal for medium to larger hand sizes with variable angle settings for your thumb and palm. Scroll wheel is firm and smooth but does not have a free scroll feature. Mouse is sturdy and solid with some weight to it out of the box. (Can be customized to increase or decrease overall weight) One of the best wireless "Rats" I've come across in my professional opinion.
Summary: I ordered this back in Sept, and it finally arrived in December. It is great to use, but I don't see how anyone could use this at it's fullest settings. (5600dpi) Unless you're using 3xgiant screens worth of desktop. It's that responsive. This mouse suffers no "lift up" problems noted with the earlier RAT models. My one and only complaint is the battery life. With constant use, including gaming I have to switch the battery cartridge about 1xday.
Pros: Completely customizable, works well.
Cons: Battery life could be better. Won't work on my glass mousepad, sadly.
Summary: The mouse is the best mouse that i get it until now. The ajustable part of the mouse is simple great, custom button keys binding. Not just for gaming, but to work in digital image editing. I recomend.
