Mad Catz Cyborg R.A.T. 7 Gaming Mouse


For the gamer looking to find a great mouse, the choices are limitless. But how often does one "feel" perfect? To cater to gamers who don't mind taking time to customize a mouse to a huge degree, Mad Catz delivers its R.A.T. series. With full ability...

I've said it earlier, but I'll say it again here - this is the most unique mouse in both style and customization available on the market to date. There's a good chance you've already made up your mind as to whether or not you want one - probably just...

Mad Catz RAT 7 Stealth Edition Review


Huge franchises depend on merchandising. It doesn't matter what the franchise is, and Activision would be remiss if it didn't take advantage of the latest Call of Duty, Black Ops. Working with Mad Catz, who has recently released a number of high-end...

Mad Catz Cyborg R.A.T. 7 Gaming Mouse Review


It's a fact of life that no two persons hands are exactly the same; hell the variance between people can be down right HUGE. For this reason, manufacturers of peripheral components like the ubiquitous mouse, have to design for the mythical "average"...

Great sensitivity ; Independent X & Y axis tracking ; Extremely customizable ; Sturdy metal body ; Multiple weight system ; Good software ; Great precision aim button ; Metal accessory case

Weight system needs smaller weight options ; No large, high grip, palm / pinkie attachment ; Feet are on the small side ; No low friction feet for pinkie attachments ; Right handed only

When I think about the Cyborg R.A.T. 7, an old phrase from an old commercial for computers from the 90's comes to mind: "look at this, that ain't a mouse... That's a RAT!" It is not fair to call this piece of equipment a mouse or even put it into the...

Mad Catz Cyborg R.A.T. 7 review


A gaming mouse designed for all the fun of the frag

Precise ; Adjustable ; Reassuringly solid

An acquired taste aesthetically

The R.A.T. has got me doubting my G9 love, and that shows what a quality rodent this is

Mad Catz Cyborg RAT 7 Albino review


An ordinary, pack-in Dell or HP mouse is probably good enough to get you through the workday. But if you spend your nights and weekends gaming on your PC, you probably want more than two buttons and a scrollwheel. A good gaming mouse is practically an...

The MadCatz Cyborg RAT 7 Albino is a full-featured, physically tweakable gaming mouse that you can alter to your exact preference.

Unimpressive product in a very impressive package


Honestly, with all of the major pluses of this product, its poor performance can barely keep it afloat and for that reason alone I give it 2/5 stars. If this mouse had better hardware and a slightly neater software UI, it could easily be a 5/5 at this...

Ergonomics / Customizability - infinitely customizable and great for large hands, heavy arms, and different grip types. Precision Aim Button - A must-have. Now that I've used this feature I fear going back to a mouse that doesn't have it. Excellent aim...

Performance. (and really, does anything else matter?) This mouse had tracking issues within the six months to a year. Problems would be intermittent, but the number one issue was loss of tracking. It could be x-y, or it could be only one axis, but the...

stylish and very uncomfortable


Looks Cool

This mouse is ergonomically uncomfortable. Look at the side view and notice it doesn't look hemispherical like every other mouse. As well, the spacing between your thumb and pinkie is too wide when you hold this item. The included software has no...

Freezes - Must be hard reset often.


I swore by this mouse and actually convinced multiple people to buy this mouse and now I FELL REGRET!!! I even emailed them and they said that they had ISSUES WITH THE DRIVERS!!!! I refuse to pay for something that doesnt even work. Oh Saiteck dont...

Years ago my first one of this same kind worked amazingly well ; (2-3 years ago that is)

just junk the old one from years ago felt nice and firm on real good plastic, but this new one felt trashy and made of extremely cheap plastic ; RESEARCH THIS CAUSE THE DRIVERS NOT WORKING IS SUPER COMMMON LIKE EXTREMELY TO COMMON

Mad Catz MCB4370800C2/04/1


I bought this mouse because it was on Maximum PC's Best of the Best for years, and I've agreed with their peripheral ratings in the past. To pay nearly $100 for a mouse of this quality and have it be anything less than completely reliable is unacceptable.

Very customizable. Feels sturdy. Looks great. Lots of features

Within a month of owning the mouse, the laser became unreliable. Sometimes, the cursor would just shake when the mouse is moved. Other times, the cursor would move along only a single axis. At first, simply reconnecting the mouse would fix the problem,...

Piece of junk


Definitely not worth the money. Won't by a Mad Catz product ever again.

Was great at first like others have stated, mainly for it's customization to fit your hand

Red precision button never worked with any of my games. 2 side buttons (I used for TS, Vent) are bad and will die on you eventually. First button died after a couple of months, second lasted for a while before it is began failing. Gets dirty easy due...
