Don't expect it to last too long
24 November 2014
Summary: I bought this mouse just over a year ago, and it has served me pretty well. I'm not a gamer, but I use all the programmable buttons for architecture programs (ha). It's comfortable to use, and I love the thumb rest so that it doesn't drag on the table. I think the mouse tracks well on just about any surface and I've never had any problems with that aspect of it despite never actually owning a mousepad. However, recently the scroll wheel started acting up.
Summary: Pros:Cool design, very comfortable, pretty decent DPI Cons:The mouse is too small for my hand, Mad Catz program that is compatible for this mouse isn't the best and still feels like it is in beta, the braided cable is already starting to wear out, the mouse itself is already wearing out after a year of almost daily use. I also want to add in that the mouse sensor is already starting to die off and becoming less and less accurate.
Summary: I don't know about most mouses, but this one isn't very well made it appears. The middle mouse button broke a year in- a known issue with this model. Otherwise the mouse 'works'. One note: I don't like how, if you use the preset configurations in the driver software, you have to launch it and activate it every time you open windows. An OK mouse for the price, but maybe I was expecting too much?
Summary: The options for this mouse are great, but I am dealing with a major concern. After my last mouse started going out, I decided it was time for an upgrade. I do a lot of Photoshop work, and photo editing, in general. Having a mouse that does what I need it to is a must for someone like myself. When it does what you want it to, it's great and I couldn't ask for much better. The issues that I'm having is with the software and the hardware, both.
Summary: This mouse is a gaming type of mouse and I didn't like it very much.Even though I am an avid gamer and I had bought it for gaming use. I gave it to my Grandson who also games and he really liked it and played well with it.My age may have had something to do with my not liking this mouse.I is different and it feels so in your hand.
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 mouse is very comfortable, customizable, and responsive. It has to be one of the best mice I've ever had, but it broke after 2-3 months of usage. I sent it in for warranty, but it happened all over again. I do not recommend buying this mouse.
Pros: Very responsive Customizable Comfortable
Cons: Cable connecting to the USB male adapter loosened free after 2-3 months of regular usage.
Summary: It's definitely a good mouse. If you can get past the strange aesthetic and minor quirks it'll get the job done and more.
Pros: -Sensor picks up what it should -5 button mouse. If you've tried to go back to a three button mouse after having a five button it's incredibly painful. -Adjustable DPI -Solid build quality. It feels like a well engineered piece of machinery. -Surprisingly comfortable. It may look jagged and unfriendly but it's actually pretty well molded to the human hand. -Braided cable. After having a great many devices of all types kick it due to a poor cable this is definitely a p...
Cons: -This is the big one. I personally think it's very, very ugly. I'm more of a minimalist though, so you can imagine why this wouldn't be to my taste. -The thumb buttons are in a strange position. They're perfectly usable in the position they're in but it takes getting used to. -I don't really like the software that comes with it. It works, but it feels strange to work with. -A minor one, but the mouse doesn't "remember" the DPI setting you had it set to after you shut ...
Summary: I gave it 3 stars. This was a tough one because it is a great mouse, but I feel like I am paying for style and quality over features. That's not a bad thing, but add two more buttons and make it an adjustable fit and you go from 3 to 5 instantly.
Pros: Real cool looking mouse. I got this because I thought it went great with my setup, which is a white Fractal R4 case. And it does look cool. It also feels great to use. So smooth, easily adjustable DPI that goes ridiculously high. Feels very quality in the hand, does not feel cheap. Have I mentioned it looks cool?
Cons: A little pricing for what you get. It looks as though you would be able to adjust it for a custom fit, but the design is just for looks. For the price, I would have also been more satisfied with 2 more side buttons. The software is okay, and you can save different profiles, but there isn't too much to adjust outside of dpi settings; I don't really see myself using it much. Happy with the quality, but it was a little steep for what it is.
