5 out of 5 eggsQuality Gaming Mouse

This review is from: Mad Catz R.A.T.5 Gaming Mouse for PC and Mac - White

Pros: Mouse is adjustable! You can have claw, palm, finger style because the back slides in and out with a push of a button. The sniper button DPI is easily adjustable once you down the software. This mouse made BF4 enjoyable, a great deal enjoyable. Everything is solid, the mouse feels solid, quality built.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Firstly I'd like to say once purchasing this mouse it arrived at my house the next day! WOW talk about fast shipping?!

I have had several gaming mice over many years of gaming. In past year maybe two I have purchased a Logitech G300, Razer Abyssus, and Razer Naga. I enjoyed Razer but felt their was something always missing... Mad Catz made this mouse pretty adjustable is I feel I have found my match. I play BF4 among other games and haven't had any issues testing this mouse out over past couple days.

2 out of 5 eggsA little lacking.

This review is from: Mad Catz R.A.T.5 Gaming Mouse for PC and Mac - White

Pros: It is a nice sensative mouse, but a bit on the expensive side.

Cons: For the price I expected it to last longer than 15 months. Sensor failure.
Besides the price, I'm a linux user and I had a few issues with it out of the box.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mouse, Great Price

This review is from: Mad Catz R.A.T.5 Gaming Mouse for PC and Mac - White

Pros: Adjustable features work well, but I haven't used them. Fit my hand well out of the box. Tracking is good and I like the braided cord. Track wheel works really nicely...I play a lot of games with this mouse but I love it to browse the web as well. It is also nice to adjust the sensitivity on the fly with the button under the scroll wheel.

Cons: Can't think of any other than the fact that is a $75 mouse. But you get what you pay for.

1 out of 5 eggsWill never buy one again.

This review is from: Mad Catz R.A.T.5 Gaming Mouse for PC and Mac - White

Pros: The mouse has some nice customization options. Looks pretty awesome.

Cons: Although this mouse has the ability to be adjusted length wise to fit your hand, the mouse still could not be adjusted to fit mine properly. The scroll wheel broke first(about 4 weeks in). I almost never used it, but it now sticks down even if I don't hit it. Just recently the mouse began losing tracking capability on the X axis. I could move the pointer up and down, but not left to right. This just randomly occurs, and then corrects itself only after I reconnect it. This mouse also cannot seem to track on ANY mouse pad I have bought. I have tried high end cloth surfaces and synthetic surfaces, but this mouse only tracks on a piece of wood, or paper (So I have newspaper for a mouse pad now...). It's also quite expensive.

Other Thoughts: Disappointing for what is supposed to be a high end mouse.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!!

This review is from: Mad Catz R.A.T.5 Gaming Mouse for PC and Mac - White

Pros: Smooth tracking on a Corsair Gaming Mat XL.
Really really comfortable on the hand.. and adjustable. I love the weighted feel but smooth gliding across the mat.
Very responsive and easy to snap (think high-FPS games)
The included precision button is awesome for lowered DPI-tracking making it a multi-use mouse for professional and entertainment purposes.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsIts okay so far...

This review is from: Mad Catz R.A.T.5 Gaming Mouse for PC and Mac - White

Pros: I'm recently bought this after my G500 broke. Works pretty well so far as you would expect from a $50+ worth of equipment. The laser is solid, very precise and the traction is smooth as well.

Cons: The grip took some getting used to because as you extend the adjustable palm rest, it kind of rises up against your palm and it gets uncomfortable.

The side scroll controller does not work. I've read other MadCatz mouse reviews that complain about this particular part but didn't expect to not work from the get-go... Which is quite a bummer.


The overall quality of the mouse isn't what I expected either; the glossy plastic is flimsy, especially the side panels.

The light that indicates DPI level is not "clean". It seems like the LED's inside aren't small enough :/

Other Thoughts: All in all I'm never going to buy another MadCatz mouse, not because of they make bad products but because there are other companies out there that have better quality products for the same price. I would suggest Logitech and Corsair mice.

5 out of 5 eggsvery impressive

This review is from: Mad Catz R.A.T.5 Gaming Mouse for PC and Mac - White

Pros: incredibly responsive and each click feels very tight as well as tactile. I would recomend this mouse to anyone looking for a gaming mouse that wont break the bank.

Cons: the retention cap that holds the customizeable weights in place can loosen on its own and if you dont catch it soon enough you might have weigts shoot all over your room. I would also like to see a different finish on the primary buttons because sometimes the greas from your hands build up making it look kinda nasty

Other Thoughts: great overall mouse. ive had no real issues with it. love the on the fly adjustable dpi switch even though the side of the mouse where your thumb goes would be a much better spot for it.
