Great mouse while it lasted

Summary: A bit of a weird design, but surprisingly comfortable. The buttons are well placed, and the weight is fine. The optical sensor is accurate enough for gaming. After a year of use, however, the optical sensor stopped working altogether, so it became useless. Rather disappointed as I still have mice from the 90s and 00s that still work perfectly fine. This is the cheapest R.A.T. 3 though, so I guess I can't be too mad.
Summary: This was my first real gaming mouse. I did eventually upgrade to the rat 7, but only because I loved this mouse so much. I wore it out one of the thumb buttons because I smashed it in using it for push to talk. I still use this one for another computer. The overall feel of this mouse is great. The texture is perfect, a little soft and really keeps it from feeling sweaty and gross even after long gaming sessions.
Summary: This mouse was literally the laughing stock of my gaming friends, it was big and bulky and a little ugly. Though it is like that, it still was a really good mouse. I bought this mouse because I needed a gaming mouse and at the same time I looked at it and said to myself, I wonder what my friends would say if they saw this. It lasted for about 8 months before I had to replace it because while at a friends house soda was spilled on it and it stopped working.
Summary: I have had this mouse for over two years and its still working great Pros 1. Great feel, this mouse may look like a transformer with its jagged edges but it does not feel like it looks, it fits very well in my hand, even before I found out that its palm rest is variable, now after I have adjusted it, its even better. The mat finish gives it a good grippy feel as well. 2. Durable, other reviewers may have had issues but I have not.
A mouse forged from the technological break throughs of the cold war.

Summary: I have had this mouse for a year now and I love it. it is comfortable and sturdy as well as stylish. It has lasted a hole lot longer than the cheap PC mice that I have bought. The braided cable makes it harder for my cat to chew it in two. And I can wipe a lemon across it to keep the cat away from it. Cats tend to hate citric acids and the fibers hold the scent of the lemon acting as cat repellant but enough so my cat still curls up in my lap.
Summary: The concept is good but this thing is such a pain to program. I give up fiddeling around with it. It was a total waste of time fiddeling around with it. I will be returning this RAT C$%P! tomorrow!
Summary: I bought this for a song on Woot a few years ago. My MX Revolution was dying and I needed a replacement. I got lucky and this mouse has lasted me at least two years. It's the most comfortable mouse I've ever used (I have small hands) despite its appearance. The buttons are all placed very ergonomically and feel good. The scroll wheel works but is a definite step down from my MX Revolution. The software is pretty s***ty looking but works.
Summary: Got this mouse thinking it was going to be good. The feeling of the mouse feels good but has a bunch of software problems. This mouse drivers don't work correctly on windows 7 64 bit home premium. Games get a tone of mouse lag and had to keep reinstalling the drivers and rebooting to get the drivers to work. Though when you shut it down and start up again the mouse is broken again!
