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.
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.
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: This is a piece of Art of a mouse, literally. It's weight, it's customization for different sized hands is incredible. Thumb and pinkie rests are unlike nothing else I've used on a mouse before -- the pinkie rest in itself was what drew me to this mouse, as I have very small hands making it...
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.
Pros: High customization, good for small hands, smooth glide.
Cons: ELECTRIC SHOCK, extremely bad glitches with the laser.
Summary: OK, as for a mouse, this thing rocks!!! I love the customizations and the pinky rest is sweet. Being able to switch DPI, select games to auto configure mouse, and thumb back on pages is so nice. But I have now had four die on me in six months. All laser related.
Summary: The mouse was great initially. I have big hands, so it was nice to be able to customize it. However, I noticed sometimes (about 6 months after I bought it) that I couldn't move the cursor on my screen up anymore.
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.
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 mouse looks great on my desk but other than that i have come to hate it. With its very slippery surface and the way the pinky rest is positioned i find my pinky dragging in my desk constantly.
