Not very reliable

Owen M. Connors, Amazon
13 February 2014
  • Summary: Started having problems about a year after I bought it. Mouse freezes and have to unplug it and plug it in again. That would be OK for a cheap mouse, but not for one that's so expensive.

User Review

  • Summary: I had a RAT3..no problems (its my backup now). I had a RAT7 loved it until the y axis went stupid and got progressively worse until was unusable, so it lasted a month from start of problems to 3 months when I tossed it out a window. Bought a RAT5 recently...3 weeks in and I'm having same problems...Ive no interest in chasing warranties so when this one dies ...I'm done with MadCatz products.
  • Pros: Looks cool, adjustable,nice wheel action, thumb support
  • Cons: They just don't last, expensive.

This Mouse would be great.

JD, Amazon

  • Summary: This mouse is the most comfortable mouse to use. The button layout is great the adjustablity is perfect. But the sensor is garbage. the up and down tracking is perfect. The left to right tracking skips no matter what surface you try it on. I've tried to versions and both had the problem, and it's wide spread on the internet if you look around a little.

Nice design Poor quality

Donovan R. Toole, Amazon
3 February 2012
  • Summary: I bought this mouse January 17 2011. The mouse died today, February 2 2012. I can still click on things on the screen however the mouse has stopped tracking completely. There was no damage done to the mouse to cause this, I was actually watching Hulu, and when I went to close the window, no dice. I plugged in an old Microsoft Sidewinder I've had for about 5 years that was collecting dust, and it works flawlessly.

Has tracking problems with the slightest amount of dust

Jonathon E. Roberts, Amazon
14 February 2011
  • Summary: I was really excited for this mouse. After a month of use, I've switched back to my old Logitech G5 and ditching this one. It has constant tracking problems when even the slightest amount of dust gets in the sensor. Problems I've never had with my G5. Too many times playing Starcraft 2 I would hit an invisible wall or ceiling during a crucial battle. I'd have to lift the mouse up and blow the dust out.

This mouse is almost great. But alas........

P. Vlahodimos "A Gamer", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this mouse due to the much hyped customisation aspect. Let's be honest and not naive: First of all, people looking at this mouse are more likely to be gamers. Secondly, response time and DPI is very important to gamers, but 99% of the gaming mice out there (including those in a much cheaper bracket) will be more than adequate for all but the semi-pro gaming community (and upwards). So this mouse basically meets the same criteria that 99% of gaming mice meet.

The issues with this mouse series and a possible solution

Chris Jackson, Amazon
16 January 2013
  • Summary: I have a Microsoft mouse, but I wanted more buttons for certain games and this looked interesting. Windows installs the mouse, I go online for software and updates. But soon it isn't doing what it should. The cursor looks as if a drunkard was using the mouse. It was wobbly when moving the mouse cursor left, right, up, down, diagonally. It was a problem in game too. Couldn't go through menus or aim properly in games. The mouse cursor felt like it was against me.

Schlechte Verarbeitung der Daumentaste....sonst ganz ok

Manzi, Amazon
1 February 2014
  • Summary: Die Maus liegt gut in der Hand und ist für meine Zock,- und Bediengewohnheiten ausreichen (nachdem ich sie selber repariert habe). Der größte Kritikpunkt dieser Maus ist die Verarbeitung der beiden Daumentasten auf der Linken Seite. Diese sind ca. 2mm dick und jeweils ca. 1,5 cm breit (Finde ich nicht gerade angenehm.

Lebenszeit: 1 Jahr, 3 Monate

Bay, Amazon
1 August 2013
  • Summary: Ich habe sie geliebt... Das ist der einzige Grund für den 2. Stern, ansonsten gäbs nur einen. Ich war bis gestern überzeugt davon, die beste Maus meines Lebens zu besitzen, habe sie bei Umzügen etc. wie ein rohes Ei behandelt und bin auch ansonsten sehr pfleglich mit ihr umgegangen. Seit gestern bewegt sich der Cursor nicht mehr. Die Tasten funktionieren noch, ich kann also klicken und scrollen, aber der Sensor ist wohl hin.

Costumization ...

Kim, Amazon
6 May 2013
  • Summary: Was soll man dazu sagen, All das schnicke Design, kombiniert mit super Anpassfähigkeit an die Hand, trotzdem entweder zu kurz oder zu lang ( nur an meiner Hand so meine Freunde kommen wunderbar damit klar... ) bitte nicht blind kaufen sondern vorher mal ausprobieren .. Weiteres Manko ist die Software ( sieht aus und ist bedienbar wie ein Programm von Windows 98 ) Makro's sind schön einzustellen, aber keine Grundbelegungen von der Maus, oder ich bin zu doof um das zu...
