Each profile allows for nine user-definable commands via three programmable buttons over three modes.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage

Pros: None

Cons: Front side button sometimes does not work. Owned less then 2 months. Back side button position awkward to use. Left click side to side loose.

Other Thoughts: Paid 57 dollars for a mouse that is broken less then 2 months in. Disabled shut-in on limited income. Can't return to Newegg, past 30 days. Am tossing in garbage and will use old mouse that lasted me 4 years and still has some life left.

Bought this because I had heard good things about it. Bad purchase.

I rarely make a 1 egg review. This one deserves it.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Purchase

Pros: This is a fantastic product. I know that people have been dissapointed with other Mad Catz products, but this one is an exception to that rule.

The design ensures maximum comfort. I have fairly wide hands, and can't do slim mice. The buttons on the front left side are placed perfectly, and I utilize these in BF4 for quick scope adjustments. The weight is about perfect. Also there is a center button just behind the wheel that allows you to change dpi on the fly. Very useful.

Supports rapid fire, other stuff.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Grab it. Best mouse I have ever used.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Economy Gaming Mouse

Pros: -Amazing
-Great Control Panel that helps you change button functions and profiles
-A very nice and durable gaming mouse

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I previously owned the Corsair M65 gaming mouse. Was it worth it? Absolutely. I owned it for less than a year, but it didn't break and held up. I say that to demonstrate how amazing THIS mouse is. I went to a LAN party in July and one of my friends had this mouse. I played a couple games of L4D2 on it and fell in love with it. I got rid of my old mouse and got this one. It is amazing. I set my forward button to click 100 times in one second. It is a fantastic mouse. My friend was able to say that it was his favorite, and it is mine as well.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Mouse

Pros: From a week of using this mouse all day every day I can tell you that this is simply an amazing mouse. If you're willing to spend the money, I would recommend the RAT 5, 7 or 9 over this, but this being the budget mouse, it is simply fantastic. It has a great design that looks great sitting on any desk. To be honest with you, at first glance, I thought this would be pretty uncomfortable, However, I have never felt more comfort in a mouse. 10/10

Cons: absolutely none

Other Thoughts: I would like to see this be shipped with the pinkie wing that the RAT 9 comes with. But you can buy these from the mouses website. This is nothing to knock an egg off for.

5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME

Pros: very,Very well built. the plastic is strong and since it is polished it is easy to clean of body oils, etc. the 2 extra keys are good i use them for push to talk in arma series of games.

Cons: NONE NONE NONE!!!

Other Thoughts: GET IT and it has not failed me almost 400 hours so far and its a trooper. get the software to change the setting with your dpi selector its standard set but you can make a ``profile`` and adjust it to your liking its free software.

it looks cheap but it can compete with 150 dollor mouses.
