Summary: I bought this mouse while trying to look for a replacement for my World of Warcraft Cataclysm Steelseries mouse(the round palm area made it tolling to grip after hours of usage). So naturally I looked for the most rigid looking mouse I could find: The R.A.T. series by Mad-Catz. The mouse itself was VERY sturdy and felt durable. The finish on the mouse made it very hard to scratch and would not absorb sweat easily. The cable of the is also very durable.
Pros: Sleek Design and Finish, Durable Cable, Reliable Mouse Clicks, Adjustable Palm Rest, 3 Different Profiles, 4 DPI settings, Sturdy Metal Frame, Adjustable Weights
Summary: Fell in love with the mouse as soon as I saw it in maximum PC. Very stylish, it worked well for the first 18 months, then the sensor starting to lose track occasionally while gaming, VERY frustrating. Eventually the frame also started to bend from repeated lifting and lowering the mouse on the pad. This caused it to wobble when mouse clicking, making your cursor jump. Very innovative mouse but unfortunately, had quite a few problems.
Pros: -Very customizable, comes with different attachments, -Looks cool
Cons: Aluminum frame bends over time, making your mouse clicks jump, Not made with big hands in mind.
Summary: I had this mouse for a bit now and it is a really good one. Came super fast and in a perfect condition. The only small issue I had is when you (for the first time)have your hand on it for a bit you would put a little weight on the bottom and the front of the mouse would lift for like a millimeter and the cursor lag a bit because the sensor is not 100% touching the pad. But, just another hand position would fix the problem perfectly.
Pros: -Feels very sturdy., -Kind of a ruberized coating - Which is feeling super good., -Very good looking., -Nice features.
Summary: Initially I thought this mouse was great, but quickly learned the truth about the supposedly amazing gaming mouse. If it wasnt for the 2 product breaking bugs bellow, this would be the mouse for almost every gamer. Sometimes while using the mouse my pointer (or crosshair in game.) would hit an invisible wall vertically on the screen, basically the mouse would stop tracking the entire axis. This was rage inducing on many games.
Pros: High customization, good for small hands, smooth glide.
Cons: ELECTRIC SHOCK, extremely bad glitches with the laser.
Summary: This is my first gaming mouse wasn't a fan of my friends cyborg mouse but after using multiple $20 cheap-o's I decided to give this another go. And I am glad i did, lots of options and tweaks you can do to it. Only downside is that it can take awhile to get adjusted to your likings.
Pros: very adjustable, profiles available for games
Cons: takes time to get adjusted correctly for your needs
Summary: First the good: I really enjoy this mouse. Once I moved my tower off my desk, it was steady as could be. It's quite sensitive to vibrations but that's about it for flaws in functionality. The weight of it is great. It's got an metal structure inside and it's very bottom heavy. I didn't feel the need to add all the weights as the weight of the mouse itself weighed it down enough for my tastes. The clicking is really solid and all the buttons are easily accessible.
Pros: Nice weight, customizable grip, customizable weights, Very precise, Doesn't wander too much when clicking (though not as good as others), Great customer support
Cons: First one was DOA, Second one only lasted 11 months, Tends to wander a bit without a solid surface/desk, Only offer 3 months of warranty, electrically vulnerable, The driver software sucks.. REALLY bad. I Just use the windows 7 default ones.
Summary: This would be a good mouse if it lasted. May have had a defective unit, and I had it replaced with a diff. mouse as they were out of stock. Love how you can change the extension on the mouse to suit your grip style. It also has a great clicking feel and what else can I say. Great product. Minus one star for busting.
Summary: This mouse is great, I'm glad I got it over the 7 or 9 as I have a smaller hand and this mouse fits perfectly. Yes it can tip but only if you're a retard :D would you pay an extra $20-30 for a few more dpi and adjustable width?... only if you got a giant hand I guess, otherwise this is great. The software could have been developed better.
