Summary: Got mine on TigerDirect just over two years ago, maybe longer I don't remember. I got the white version with my first gaming PC. When I first got it I loved it to death, It looks cool, works, and you can change DPI on the fly. Over the years now it's taken a bit of a beating(daily use) and you can tell by looking at it. However, it still functions like it did out of the box. Would recommend this mouse to anyone.
Summary: Got this mouse for my younger brother who loves gaming. He absolutely loves it he says its super good for gaming. (Minecraft) This mouse is so cool and has a super smooth texture and my hand shapes around it. So worth the money I paid definitely! I say you should get it!
Summary: I have had my R.A.T.3 Gaming Mouse for a few weeks now, but prior to this one I have had the Matte Black (bought from in-store) for over a year now. I adore this mouse and the 3 programmable buttons (5 all together including the 2 left and right buttons), 4 dpi settings and 3 modes. My Matte Black was however my first gaming mouse ever, so one could say I was easily impressed. I decided to get the [glossy] White to use with my MacBook Pro.
Summary: this is the first gaming mouse I bought and after a year still working like new the cat started clawing at the wire and the braided rope is starting to fray in places but it still has a rubber coating on the wire under that. If I ever buy a new one I will more than likely get a rat 5 just for more buttons to play with while using 3D software like autocad.
Summary: I'm a gamer with various preferences. This mouse is great for Call of Duty, Left 4 Dead, Minecraft, emulation, and even just browsing the web. It allows you to create multiple profiles in which you can change the settings of the extra mouse buttons(3 of them) and can easily and quickly be switched between various profiles. High quality product, delivered before expected date and is adjustable so you can find the right fit for your hand.
