Summary: I would never recommend. This mouse absolutely does freeze. Maybe not at first, or even often for a while, but eventually it will become unusable and begin freezing constantly every couple seconds. Picture of aftermath for dramatic effect.
Summary: I purchased 2 of these interesting looking mice. 1. Not only was the software very limiting (cannot change polling rate, random resets on dpi, profiles dont save properly) 2. Both mice broke within 5 months with the same problem, a faulty left click resulting in double/triple/quadruple clicks when clicked only once. I decided to contact customer support to get a replacement for one of them and left a ticket/email with MadCatz/cyborg.
The laser stopped working after a month. I would not recommend it.

Summary: The laser stopped working after a month. I would not recommend it. I had another rat 3 mouse who's cord stopped working after half a year. This model is no good. However, their RAT5 model has held up for me through 1.5 years at work.
Summary: Didn't buy this from Amazon, bought it at a local store from Finland. This product is just so bad i cannot recommed it to anybody. I'm not a player but I need a well performing mouse for graphic designing. Sure at first this was a great product and everything worked liked a charm but after few months a lot of problems with the mouse started occur. The cursor does whatever or then just complete freezes. Buttons work but not the laser.
Summary: I've had this mouse for over 10 months. I like using the macro and changing the DPI with a click of a button. However, the mouse 'freezes' about 5 times per week. The cursor stops responding, clicks don't trigger anything. The DPI button doesn't work either. If I unplug/plug it then it seems to work normal again. I play Battlefield 3 online and luckily the mouse hasn't frozen on me during gameplay. I'm not sure if I would buy another cyborg product again.
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: 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!
Summary: I purchased this mouse NEW and i went online to watch a video to see how it is set up because there was not anything with it. I realized that i did not receive the software CD. I thought it was weird that the seals were already open especially since i ordered the item new.....VERY UNSATISFIED.
