Summary: While this is the most comfortable mouse I have ever used (and rightly so with all the adjustments) in less than a year it is failing. First the sensor started to only work on certian mousepads, then on a manilla evelope.
Summary: Mouse design and customization is really nice but after 2-4 weeks forward button dying so i replaced this mice for new one but same problem after 2 weeks :( im not sure if i want this mouse anymore sice my old mice survived my hardcore gaming for 7 YEARS !!!!
Summary: I was really excited to get this mouse to use for gaming. The customization is awesome. I ordered mine in September 2011 and was fine for a few months. Then the pointer started jumping around on the screen randomly. I tried cleaning it but it didn't help.
Decent mouse but with tracking problems and poor support

Summary: I am writing this review for those of you that are on the fence. I have a few views on this mouse: 1. It is the most comfortable mouse I have ever owned. I have owned Razers (both a Boomslang and a Copperhead), Logitech, all of them, but I still kept a 1995 or so Microsoft PS/2 Intellimouse Explorer...
Summary: The R.A.T. 5 mouse was generally quite nice at first. I didn't use it for anything fancy, and it never left by desk. But after three months of light use, the tracking completely crapped out. The pointer doesn't respond to mouse movements at all. I tested on multiple surfaces, and multiple computers.
Summary: I have never used a mouse that felt this good in hand, problem is I have never had a mouse last only a bit more than a year. turned on my rig and mouse only moves in the vertical, restart! Mouse wont move at all, no light just dead!
Summary: I got this for my husband over the summer. After 6 months it is no longer working. He doesn't even play much, so he hardly got the six months out of it. He worked on trying to find the problem, but eventually gave up.
