Mad Catz R.A.T. 7 Gaming Mouse - Perfect Your Grip

Perfect Your Grip

How do you hunt? Whether you 'palm' the mouse or 'claw' it, the Mad Catz R.A.T. 7 can quickly and easily adapt by adjusting in length to suit your hand size and grip style. 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.

Lightweight Aluminum Chassis

Strong yet nimble, the solid metal frame forms the core of the Mad Catz R.A.T. 7 for enhanced rigidity.

Mad Catz R.A.T. 7 Gaming Mouse - True 6400 DPI Laser Sensor

True 6400 DPI Laser Sensor

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 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 eggsNot worth it

Pros: Its adjustable in many different ways, including length, width, and grip. Other than that...

Cons: Owned this for 5 months. Bought it from a better bye store thats local. Mouse laser just failed flat out for no reason whatsoever a few days ago. No, its not the mouse, its the laser. The buttons work perfectly. Yes...the buttons work PERFECTLY.

Other Thoughts: Madcatz customer support is...not a viable method of customer support. I bet I can support customer support quite well by the neck with the braided cord of this mouse. That is about the only use this mouse is good for now...seems like Saitek's quality has dwindled severely with the takeover of Madcatz. Will never buy another one of their products again.

2 out of 5 eggsDeluxe aspirations, but fails in the basics.

Pros: Incredibly customizable for length, weight, angle of the buttons and texture! The tool to make the adjustments resides on the mouse so you never lose it. Resolution changes can reliably be made on-the-fly with a lit indicator.

Cons: The buttons fail RAPIDLY. I have owned this mouse for about 4 months and mouse button 1 already requires a hard press to make it register and mouse button 5 barely works at all. Mine actually feels broken. The adjustable palm rest is very loose and is really unstable out at the largest position. This mouse has one of the best dedicated side scroll wheels ever put on a mouse. Unfortunately, the side scroll wheel does not work in Windows at all, and the included software doesn't make it work either.

Other Thoughts: I bought this mouse to replace my second Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 4.0 (both of which gave YEARS of hard service). I have big hands and need a big mouse. I saw this in the store (not Newegg, sorry guys) and loved that it could be adjusted for big hands. I loved that you could change the gripping texture so you could have the mouse tacky where you wanted and smooth where you wanted. I loved the INCREDIBLE metal side scroll thumb wheel. Then I got it home to find out the thumb wheel is basically a decoration for 90% of my computer use. I already have one button that doesn't function 80% of the time (button 5) and THE MOST IMPORTANT button on the way out as well (button 1). I really hoped I got a bad one, but judging from the reviews here, this thing is junk. Avoid it like the plague! I came to Newegg to find a quality replacement. I should have found me another Intellimouse and taken this thing back to the store while it was in the return period.

2 out of 5 eggsNice Concept

Pros: Very comfortable, a lot of cool features.Gave this two eggs just because the design, concept, and the feel of the mouse.

Cons: Since there are so many moving objects its bound to fail much earlier than a typical mouse would. I have had it for a week and have been on a gaming marathon for my days off and the thumb piece is about ready to fall off now. The palm rest is very shaky and it will wobble as well. I'm not hard on my mice nor do i do anything beyond what a mouse is supposed to be used for. Maybe it was just the one mouse that I received. No big deal I just will not be purchasing Mad Catz's products in the future.

Other Thoughts: I enjoy the fact that the "underbelly" of the mouse is nice. I would really like to see a full metal mouse like this one in the future with some gripping added to the top. Very heavy but you will not break if even if you wanted to.

I'm not telling anyone not to buy this product. I have heard a lot of amazing reviews about this mouse and very many people love it, guess i got the defect.

Have a great day everyone!

2 out of 5 eggslooks cool. low quality

Pros: looks cool. lots of buttons.

Cons: does not work!

Other Thoughts: Bought this a little over a year ago because it just looked so cool. About a month ago it started acting weird like freezing momentarily and such. Today it just quit all together. plugged in my 8 year old l****tech and worked fine so not my pc! do not buy!

1 out of 5 eggsHome/office A+ -- Gaming F

Pros: Home/office <3. Also have rat5 for daily use on another pc. Especially like the weights, the double scroll and the over all Ergonomics. 4800 dpi is ideal for me. (though not so much on this model due to it's constant failures.)

Cons: False Advertisement. This isn't a gaming mouse. It isn't reliable. I've had standard ball mice handle preform better for gaming. Regardless of the surface there isn't a standard fluid movement. Jump and erratic.

Other Thoughts: I would like to give this 5 star, but it is not suited for gaming and it's 1 star for False Advertisement.

Perfect comfort, i've had 100's of mice. Now using the razer ouroboros for gaming... due to it's responsiveness.
But still prefer the R.A.T5 and 7 i have for daily/office use.

1 out of 5 eggsNice Grip

Pros: Has a nice grip and slides very well on the mouse pad. Supports the fingers and thumb for long game time without getting tired. Quality construction.

Cons: After several hours of trying to get the software to even see the mouse and talking to tech support I just gave up. I use the mouse for BF3 without any software support. I have to adjust all setting in the BF3 game. Players with macros just wipe the floor with me. If you want a gaming mouse look else ware.. I wasted over $100.00. Mouse is well built the software is a FAIL.

Other Thoughts: If the owners would get the software dept. better leadership and create the same quality of product for this mouse (full macro support that works)! This would be a show stopper.

3 out of 5 eggsRAT7 Gaming Mouse

Pros: Adjustable weight - Adjustable palm swell - configurable ledges for fingers - high resolution - decent software for configuring/programming buttons - worked very well when new and for the first 7 or 8 months of ownership

Cons: It all went downhill after about 8 months of gaming for several hours per day - scroll wheel button reacts according to the test software but doesn't react while in game any more. The scroll wheel (rotating forward or reverse functions properly) . The side "scroll" wheel is now worthless since it only works occasionally in game but the test software shows it to be good..
For some reason it's own test software shows it to function correctly but no game will consistently sense all the buttons properly any more.
The rear add on weights are nice, but, it badly needs front weights to balance the mouse out so it doesn't constantly lift the front of the mouse off the mouse pad when moved quickly in a game (flying choppers or jets is difficult when the front of the mouse lifts off the pad and looses control.
Something strange is going on with it's ability to track on any surface. Remember the Nintendo blow on the contacts thing many years ago. It's like that. I need to smack it around to get back to tracking properly. I believe it's due to bad connections internally.

Other Thoughts: Great for about 7 months and then a P.I.T.A.
I think it's a very expensive "throw away" component as designed.
Can't recommend it unless I could keep a half dozen set aside for replacements...

1 out of 5 eggsWort mouse I've ever purchased

Pros: Very good looking mouse. Looks like all budget went to make it look good instead of making it work good. The weights make it feel like a "quality" mouse, but it's just an illusion, see cons.

Cons: 2 words: Horrible tracking.

You will hear tales about "oh, it's because you are not using the right surface noob". That's a lie. The mouse will randomly fail to track. I've tried an icemat, fabric pads, a piece of wood, and all kinds of surfaces, colors, etc. The mouse randomly does it. Don;t be fooled by "dual tracking sensors" lie. I've honestly had $10 mice that are still working and outperfom this mouse in every way.

Other Thoughts: Stay away from this mouse and any R.A.T. model. This company offers no support, very vague answers in their faq, and have done NOTHING to solve the poor tracking issues. Please do yourself a favor and order from another brand. Google "rat 7 poor tracking" and you will see there are plenty of people out there witht he same problem, and the company doesn't care as long as people buy this mouse because it looks realyl good.

2 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: Very adjustable (see cons)
Functions much like a mouse
Looks neat

Cons: No adjustment made it fit my hand well... I can't see how anybody would find it remotely comfortable. It's like holding a transformer - and I mean the literal 1980s toys...It was most certainly not designed for humans.

Way over priced... I'd have been slightly less insulted if they only charged $50 for it new (that's all I was willing to pay in the first place, hence why I bought used). $25 would have been a fair price.

What the heck am I supposed to do with the side scroll wheel? It's in the most useless place I can possibly imagine. They could have put it underneath and it would have been easier to manage.

Other Thoughts: I cannot overstate how uncomfortable it is. Sadly, you really have to try it to understand. The only reason people would give it a good review is if they have abnormally small hands without feeling, or are in "buyer's remorse" denial.
