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: 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: I cant say that I'm a mouse snob, I bought this to upgrade from the standard 2 button scroll wheel laser that came with my old Dell. So in terms up improvements, this was a light year jump! But from what I can tell so far from owning it roughly a week now, this is perhaps the best mouse I have even held. When ever I use the basic mice on the college computers or a friends other gaming mouse I find myself thinking 'I cant wait to get home to use my rat!
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: I've only owned 3 "high-end" mice, this being the third, but I know what I like--a controller that becomes invisible as you use it. That is to say, you don't notice the controller because it works smoothly. The other 2 mice were the World of Warcraft mouse from Steelseries, and the Kinzu from Steelseries. The WOW mouse has tons of buttons and is absolutely HUGE and unwieldy. The R.A.T.
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. But most of all the drivers are terrible, at first i had no problems but for some reason i have to disable and enable the driver about 10 times for it to work.
Summary: this isn't a long term review but I purchased this earlier today and played few games on it and tried few other things here and there. First of all, It is a great mouse, took me some time getting used to the mouse. I like the braided cord and the scroll wheel. Over all texture of the mouse is pretty smooth. I'm not a hardcore gamer but I am a sucker for cool gadgets and such. It does what laser mouse should do but one thing I'm not too fond of is the comfort.
Excerpt: Ничего подобного раньше не видел, это просто мышь киборг, точнее крыса(если перевести название). Я в нее сразу же влюбился, так как обожаю подобные вещи. Купил, принёс домой, тут же распаковал и начал ее разглядывать. Что сразу понравилось, так это то что она регулируется под размер вашей ладони и регулируется ее вес, при помощи специальных грузилков. Правда в комплекте не шло диска с драйверами и я кое как нашел их в интернете.
Pros: Оригинальный дизайн, регулировка размера и веса, дополнительные кнопки
