1 out of 5 eggsNot worth the time and money

Pros: Looks great, feels right and options are good.

Cons: Thumb rest is a bit weak for all the pressure you'll be using for the three side buttons. The back adjustment lock and support seems a bit flimsy and could be a little better engineered. Honestly, never got to try this unit. Got a generic email from Tech Support and decided to send it back and buy two other mice instead, that will probably last longer and be just as fast, if not faster.

Other Thoughts: I tried to install this on three different machines, just to make sure I was not getting something wrong. Also, for the money you pay it really should come with some type of software... even a cheap jump drive would be enough. Thanks to Newegg for offering this unit, not their issue at all, total manufacturer failure in all areas, sorry... just how I feel. Sorry MadCatz... done with your products.

3 out of 5 eggs3 years later

Pros: This has been a fantastic mouse, I've loved the fact that it can quite literally feel any way I want it to given the adjustable everything.

Cons: The battery life is generally acceptable for the first year or two, but then it starts declining. No big deal, just replace the batteries... Except you can't. Availability on their website is spotty at best and as of yesterday, I couldn't order replacements to save my life. At this point, I've got the option of hoping I can find the individual cells to purchase and solder in or just replace the whole unit as one of the batteries is now entirely dead (~5 minutes charge) and the other holds for about 60 minutes. It's been 3 years, so I'm not disappointed by that fact. I'm really complaining about the lack of support they provide for a mouse that costs $150.

Other Thoughts: Newegg could/should carry the batteries/cells. Then I could toss a few other random things into my order ;)

4 out of 5 eggsGet the wired version

Pros: - It looks as good as you imagine.
- I have average hands and find its adjustments to be terrific.
- The weight and metal base is a godsend for someone like me who gets frustrated and slams the mouse down. The weight reminds me not to, and the metal base stands up if I do anyway.
- I LOVE the pinky rest. Giving my pinky something to push against adds a surprising amount of control.

Cons: Should have bought the wired version (R.A.T. 7).

- Just normal daily use (not gaming) the battery barely lasts a day (in fact the battery warning just started flashing as I write this).
- The mouse hasn't dropped connection with the base station, but the base station has dropped the USB connection to the PC.
- The mouse will intermittently stutter in response as if the resolution dropped to nothing. I have to turn the mouse off and back on.

Other Thoughts: - The battery is NOT hard to get out. I've never had an issue. Try wiping the potato chip grease off your hands first.
- I don't see much point to the sniper button. It's awkwardly placed, and I've never needed it before.

3 out of 5 eggsCould be a great mouse

Pros: Great mouse with tons of customization but has two major flaws.

Cons: It feels great except the pinky rest could be wider but thats personal choice. Rests are adjustable so most probably wont have an issue. I do have two main reasons this mouse has gone from great to I wont buy another. First is it is extremely picky as to what mat it will work on. I have 4 mats it is suppose to work on and the razor destructor is the only on it works on and its still finicky on that. Second major problem is its a pain to setup on Linux operating systems but I'm a noob to Linux so many may not have a problem.

4 out of 5 eggsTons of customization, looks cool.

Pros: I've been searching for a mouse that will fit "man hands". I've tried a lot and this guy is up to the challenge. You can literally change the mouse and customize everything on it. I've only had it for a week but I've learning to love it and changing it everyday to get the best fit.

Cons: Battery lift does drain quickly depending on the DPI and how long you use the mouse. But it takes two seconds to pull out the spare and plug it in. No big deal.

Other Thoughts: I'll follow up on this review after I've played with this mouse for a bit.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat mouse!

Pros: Kool, 2 batteries are a great idea!

Cons: I wanted to answer some of the issues i've seen from readers. The mouse has 6400 dpi capable and is very sensitive. The vibrations from your speakers or even your PC can make the cursor move on the screen. ANY WIRELESS MOUSE WILL DO THAT, but especially one as with a sensitive laser like this! It is not a defect! U need to cushion the mousepad or move your speakers, if you have a separate sub-woofer, away from your desktop. I had to put mouspads under my pc because the vibrations from it also make the mouse move. I take the mouse to work and use it with no issues!

1 out of 5 eggsTurrible

Pros: Looks cool, lots of customizations

Cons: As others have stated the mouse has a mind of it's own, it jumps around and generally lags. I also have a problem of it getting stuck in one direction (vertical or horizontal.) This mouse has been nothing short of a headache.

Other Thoughts: I originally owned a cyborg version of the mouse but had to warranty it due to some small issue, it was replaced with this mad catz version that I find far inferior, the cyborg mouse had none of these problems, what did you do mad catz??

1 out of 5 eggsSucks

Pros: Looks cool, lots of adjustments, wireless.

Cons: Do yourself a favor and don't buy this mouse, it fidgets all over the screen which is unacceptable considering the price. Trust me I've done everything I possibly could to fix it but nothing works. Try playing a game when the mouse will stop moving and stutter all over the place, it makes games completely unplayable.

Other Thoughts: I'm probably going to be voted as not helpful but at least I'm being honest.

1 out of 5 eggsGiving up on it

Pros: Feels good, looks good.

Cons: It's made by Mad Catz.

I hate to complain about an entire brand but I've never had good luck with any of their products. Had I noticed it was Mad Catz I would not have bought it.

My biggest problem is that the cursor dances all around the screen whenever there is a little bit of bass. Makes it unusable with my 5.1 surround system.

Battery life is also terrible. It's nice that you get a spare, but I have to switch them several times a day in the middle of a game.

While Maybe it's just what to expect with a high sensentivey mouse, it's very difficult to double click just using windows without the mouse moving too far and draging the icon vs. doing a double click, very annoying.

Also take note that the horzontal scroll wheel does not do horizontal scrolling! Best you can do is bind it to left and right buttons.
