In addition, the Thumb Panel moves forwards, backwards, and even pivots outwards to provide a comfortable platform from which all thumb buttons are easily accessible.

The Mad Catz R.A.T. 7 Gaming Mouse's new-generation 'twin-eye' laser sensor reads each axis separately and tracks up to a stunning six meters per second with pinpoint accuracy. Pro gamers who prefer low sensitivity with high movement speed will always experience correct tracking and precision.

Custom Weight System

Like it light or heavy? Maybe you want to change the weight to suit your game? It doesn't matter, the Mad Catz R.A.T. 7 has you covered. Add or subtract up to five 6-gram weights in an instant to obtain the perfect weight for a perfect feel. And when not in use, the weights can be safely stored in the supplied weight storage container.

Mad Catz R.A.T. 7 Gaming Mouse - Precision Aim Mode Mad Catz R.A.T. 7 Gaming Mouse - Precision Aim Mode

Precision Aim Mode

Hit your target the first time every time. Use the included Mad Catz software to set your desired Precision Aim speed (mouse sensitivity), then hold down the Precision Aim button to slow down mouse movement to a level that works best for you. You can even use the software to assign programmable features to the Precision Aim button, and then use it to execute keyboard commands like macros and key bindings--a deadly weapon that will hit your enemy exactly where it hurts the most.

Take Control of Your Games

With the included programming software, you can create an unlimited number of profiles. For example, create a unique profile for each game or character, or for different builds (sniper, tank, healer, and more). Within each profile, you can customize your DPI settings, set Precision Aim sensitivity, create powerful macros and set key bindings. Each profile allows for 18 user-definable commands via six programmable buttons over three modes.

18 User-definable Commands via 3 Mad Catz Modes

Toggle between three individual Mad Catz R.A.T. modes at the touch of a button. Change sensitivity or programmable button actions in an instant and gain immediate access to a mind-boggling 18 commands!

6 Programmable Buttons

Combine the programmable buttons with standard left and right mouse buttons and it all adds up to eight buttons with which you can punish your competition. Assign your choice of key gaming actions to programmable buttons to create your own custom profiles.

Customize Your DPI Settings

Four user-definable DPI settings range from 25 to 6400 and the DPI button lets you easily cycle through your custom settings.

1 out of 5 eggsNice looks

Pros: Nice looks, interchangeable parts. When it worked it was great. Now it collects dust in a closet inside a nice box.

Cons: The clicking mechanism died after half hour of playing D3.
As usually warranty expired 3 weeks before it went bad.
I used it for minimal to moderate gaming.

Other Thoughts: The engineer who designed that clicking mechanism ... what the hell were you thinking

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY

Pros: - Cool design
- Accessible buttons

Cons: - AWFUL quality
- Unreliable
- Laser tracker sucks
- Scroll wheel sucks
- mouse, in general, is very frustrating and disappointing

Other Thoughts: I have owned two of these mice over the last 4 years. The first one I bought before they were owned by Mad Catz, the second after.

Both times, the mouse was excellent for the first month or two. Looks cool, feels good. But - after a month, you start running into tracking issues. This has happened on a multitude of surfaces, mousepads, paper, desks, books. You name it, I've tried to use this mouse on it. I've updated drivers, removed the device, reinstalled.. still sucked. The cursor would become unresponsive or jump around all over the place. This is really a bummer in normal computing - and completely unacceptable for gaming.

The scroll wheel also comes off it's mount and refuses to be fixed - even when disassembling and remounting. There must be some small bit of plastic that breaks very easily. I can no longer scroll down or click in with the scroll wheel. I work in IT, so I use a mouse all day every day - this is the only mouse I have ever used that has had this problem.

I STRONGLY DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS MOUSE. I have spent almost $300 dollars on these things, and every cent I regret. Don't waste your money here - no matter how cool it looks or what people tell you. Mad Catz lives up to it's reputation of being the controller you give to guests or your sibling when you want to game.

Very disappointed, very frustrated, very convinced I will never buy another Mad Catz peripheral again - and certainly not a mouse.

1 out of 5 eggslooks can be deceiving

Pros: - Comfortable adjustment points and thumb/pinkie rests allow for the best possible fit a mouse can provide.
- Removable weights are great for someone like me who enjoys a slightly more weighted mouse.

Cons: - Bottom of the mouse tears up any surface its used on over time. It builds up material on the under side of the mouse at the rubber contact points, making it inconsistent and imprecise to move.
- Metal screws and exposed adjusting points corrode away over 6+ months of use, to the point where you cant adjust the parts anymore.
- Plastic that makes up the mouse body peels away a clear top layer and constantly requires cleaning.
- Software to change DPI and other settings is a NIGHTMARE. Their website is full of nothing but broken links. It's to the point where members of the community are designing 3rd party software to meet the needs of people with this mouse.

Other Thoughts: This mouse has a huge price tag and does not deliver anywhere near what you're paying. It sells because it's different and looks cool, but avoid buying this poor quality product from a bad manufacturer.

1 out of 5 eggsoverpriced junk

Pros: the pinky rest was kinda neat

Cons: poor (or no) tracking, no more comfortable than many if not most comparable gaming mice I've tried, bad software, no customer support, thumb support jiggles, HOLDS A LOT OF SWEAT! (idk y but this mouse had me thinking about hanging a desk fan over my mouse pad)

Other Thoughts: i read a lot of bad reviews for this product and decided it was just to cool to pass up, serves me right for choosing flash over substance. thank vishnu for best buys no lemon policy or id be stuck with this piece of madcatz garbage

1 out of 5 eggsAwful, awful, awful..........

Pros: When it worked, it worked pretty good--for three months.......

Cons: Considering the price, a longer life expectancy isn't too much to ask for. Sadly, it just decided to stop tracking. Looking at other complaints, it is very common. What makes it worse is the customer support is the worst I have ever, ever dealt with. Having worked IT for quite a few years and dealing with lots of tech support, this is easily the worst I have ever had to endure. Will take at least a week for them to acknowledge your complaint. Even then, they ignore what you explain. You get the usual tech rep response about the obvious driver reinstall, etc..... when telling them in the original complaint, all that had been done already. I would be able to handle that and have no issue if it didn't take over a week each time to get a response from them. So, it will take over a month to even get anywhere to even get close to a replacement.

Other Thoughts: Despite being a pretty expensive mouse and having higher expectations of it's performance, the customer support is what ruins this brand.

1 out of 5 eggsDown Hill Very Fast

Pros: Best mouse i have held! It was spectacular and fit my large hands perfect! Mode switching when ever I needed it and 6400dpi.

Cons: It died in 3 months! I bought for around $80 dollars at the time and have tried multiple times to try and contact Mad Catz but I can't get any response.

3 out of 5 eggsLong term user

Pros: Worked great once I got it configured. The software is sufficient but not exactly user friendly. Adjustable weights are a big plus. I like a heavy mouse.

Cons: Rusted out on me (sweat not spillage). Mouse wheel failed, became erratic and mostly unusable. Side buttons are weak and stop working after some use. Never touched the sniper button, so it was useless.

Other Thoughts: Ok mouse if you aren't a gamer, cause it simply won't stand up to use.

1 out of 5 eggsWould be great if it worked

Pros: Great dpi, on the fly sensitivity adjustment and adjust-ability is unmatched.

Cons: Poor choice of wires, shorts out frequently, has difficulty reading most mouse pads the list goes on. Cursor will lock on an axis randomly. (Yes this is after having one swapped out at a local store) I've owned my share of mice and I have to say that a $5 Microsoft mouse is on my desk now because the RAT7 is just a $100 flashy paperweight.

Other Thoughts: I've never purchased Mad Catz products recently because of the horrible controllers they used to make for the nintendo 64 and other consoles. But for whatever reason someone talked me into throwing 100 bucks away on this thing. It was great to begin with, but the wiring in the cord is terrible. It kinks and shorts out without warning. The mouse will sometimes even skip and stutter across the screen or even LOCK into a single axis of movement. Save your money and get something else. Because anything works better than a mouse that doesn't.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid.

Pros: Amazing design that can literally be made to perfectly fit any hand. Not too many buttons for reasonable use like some of the other mad catz designs.

Cons: Absolutely the cheapest crappiest manufacturing I have ever seen on such an expensive version of a device. You would expect these mice to be tough, considering what they cost. I did not get mine at new egg, and thats good for them, because Im on my third mouse with 100% failure rate in two months. The first two merely stopped being recognized by the computer. On the third mouse, I have lost ability to adjust sensitivity. They really are, in practice, very poorly constructed. Dont waste your money, I regret the money I spent on this mouse.

Other Thoughts: If you absolutely must find out for yourself how awful this product is, please buy it from somewhere you can drive to locally to return it, because trust me- you will be going back again, and again, and again. Dont make new egg pay to ship you ten replacements of this abomination.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Took about an hour or so to get it setup to what i liked and dont see myself going to another mouse after this, absolutely insane.

Cons: I'm used to logitech mouses as i've had one since as far back as i remember, and these mouse buttons are super sensitive compared to logitech. After about 2 weeks i'm still randomly pressing the right mouse button but i'm getting over it.
