1 out of 5 eggsPainful to use, difficult, awkward, gone in a month

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

Pros: While the mouse is adjustable, i could never get it to fit in my hand quite right. It looks great, and has a good balance to it, but it was still incredibly awkward and often would shock me. Adjustable only to fitting a certain hand type which wasn't mine. Cord length is long and appropriate.

Cons: Constant weird mouse drift. The mouse seemed to have a mind of its own a lot and where it was going to go and how it was going to behave. The top and bottom side back and forward buttons were in almost impossible to use place for my hand. Couldn't find the right balance with the DPS settings, seemed to be way too fast or way to slow. I often was shocked with static electricity with this mouse, first mouse I've ever had do that. After a shock the mouse would reset and I would have to reboot my computer to get it going again. One of those mice I just regret buying, my hands aren't large, the medium to smallish for a dude, and this was a poor fit overall.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mouse

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

Pros: Very responsive.
Quality like feel.
Wire feels "thick", ensuring durability.
Fits hand very well, very adjustable.
Looks like something Batman would have.

Cons: The only thing I can think of that I do not like about this mouse is that in certain games I play is like it has mouse smoothing and I do not like that. But I'm sure this can be fixed within the software for this mouse.

4 out of 5 eggsWhat's wrong with New Egg

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

Pros: Nothing yet will update as I use, but it's my second RAT, which I really like.

Cons: Took an Egg of for New Egg's shipping. Use to like this company, but I don't know what is the matter with their shipping. Their competitors get things to me in one or two days.

This item was ordered on 5 Dec. It started out in Dulles VA, 5 miles from my home. Took a trip to Philadelphia, and then Maryland. 11 days to make a 5 mile trek. In comparison, with the same order I got a monitor from Korea. It shipped out of Inchon South Korea and made the 8,000 mile trip in 3 days. Wake up New Egg your gonna go out of business if you don't compete.

5 out of 5 eggsvery fast mouse

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

Pros: 5600 dpi
4 dpi modes by the push of a button behind scroll wheel with led light indicato so you know what dpi mode you are on
forward and back buttton for i net browser
weight system ( definitely makes a difference)
extendable palm area for longer handed/fingered people
nice rest for your thumb by the pecision aim button so your not draging it across your mouse surface.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: havebt figured out what to use the thumb wheel for yet?
