Summary: Title says it all. This mouse would rate 5 stars, except that any dust or debris on your mouse pad will lock it up. This can be a disaster in a game. The fit and other ergonomics on this mouse are great, and it's the most comfortable mouse I've used, but it can be maddening when it suddenly only works on one axis because the smallest spec of something got under it. I have to stop, clean my mouse pad, and blow out the hole the the laser sits in to get it working again.
Summary: The mouse has a nice modern look and extensive feature set. In addition the ability to customize the fit/size is very nice. However, the build quality is a bit lacking even though at first glance it looks solid. After 18 months the left mouse button started to double click occasionally when only trying to single click (went from 25% of the time to >50% of the time). This is due to the microswitch wearing out from only a year and a half of moderate use.
Summary: OK First off, I love this mouse. I bought this mouse for the "Wow" factor Feb 2012 and have enjoyed every moment. I'm a business manager and this gives me another item to talk about other than Weather, Children, or up coming Holidays. I also came to love all the macro features and have incorporated this mouse into my business routine. Needless to say with time and dedication this mouse rocks for work (Need a conference call set? CLICK THE MOUSE BUTTON!!
Mechanical build is good, software/firmware not as much

Summary: The mouse feels solid and the numerous ways to adjust are fantastic. It really feels comfortable. The build quality is really good as well. From that perspective it is probably the best mouse I've ever used. If that were the end of it I'd give it 5 stars. There is a problem in that it will periodically stop tracking properly. Sometimes it will get jerky, other times it will stop tracking in one axis altogether. Unplugging and re-plugging will generally clear it.
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 difficult to hold a mouse and use side buttons. BUT, the reason why I'm not using this mouse anymore is for one simple fact not discussed: no onboard memory.
Summary: I've had this mouse for about a year and a half now. I love it, but it has some problems. THE GOOD: -Awesomely heavy. Certainly one of the heaviest mice available on the market today. Love the weight. -Visually impressive. Looks totally bada**. I've been told "that looks like something Batman would use!" Almost everyone who sees it for the first time exclaims, "Holy SH*T dude, what is that?" -Great customization.
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. I'm sitting here now with my stand-in going thru withdrawals waiting for their warranty service to reply. I guess if you have the money buy the mouse.... but buy two.
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. I've changed to different surfaces and materials, and have concluded that my laser (which is a weird double-combo cyborg uses) must be the cause. It works fine, just sometimes it gets stuck on the screen, annoying when playing FPS's competitively.
Summary: Die Frage, ob ich nun drei oder doch vier Sterne vergeben war nicht einfach. Auf der einen Seite haben wir eine hochwertig Gaming Mouse mit individuellen Einstellmöglichkeiten, auf der anderen Seite stecken leider unschöne Fehler im Detail. Aber erst mal die Sonnenseiten der RAT 7. Die Tasten sind absolut hochwertig und waren auch nach einem halben Jahr Zockereinsatz noch so schön wie am ersten Tag.
