Cyborg R.A.T 9 Mouse Review

 

Gaming mice designs often make people's jaws drop, but there's no mouse, which does that job better than the Cyborg R.A.T. 9 gaming mouse. The R.A.T.9 looks like it came out of a Transformers movie and there's no better way to get people's attention at...

The Cyborg R.A.T.9 is one of the most unique and most sophisticated mice around. It’s also the costliest at a price of Rs. 9,999 - and with good reason. It’s got tons of features - replaceable batteries, plenty of buttons, a solid, almost...

The Cyborg R.A.T. 9 Gaming Mouse is one of the most customizable wireless gaming mice available, but it's also one of the most expensive.

Great, modular design. Tons of customization options. Good wireless performance

Cyborg R.A.T. 9 Gaming Mouse for PC

 

Easily one of the most distinctive-looking mice we've reviewed, the Mad Catz Cyborg R.A.T. 9 is aimed at dedicated PC gamers. This wireless device boasts the highest degree of customizability we've seen in a gaming mouse, along with the highest price...

The Mad Catz Cyborg R.A.T. 9 is the most customizable gaming mouse available. Its two battery packs and included recharging station mean no downtime. Its unique looks make a statement, it boasts strong build quality, and it features useful button...

This mouse is expensive at $149. The lateral scroll wheel is positioned awkwardly.

The Mad Catz Cyborg R.A.T. 9 is the most expensive gaming mouse we know of, but its vast customizability, unique features, and strong performance make it a worthwhile expense for demanding PC gamers.

Exclusive: Mad Catz Cyborg Rat 9 review

 

In a world full of the shapely blobs we call computer mice, the Cyborg Rat stands out. It's skeletal, metallic, and almost completely asymmetrical. Though most mice are one-size-fit-few, the Rat lets you transform the hardware itself to fit the shape...

Low-latency wireless connectivity ; Great battery life with hot-swappable packs ; It's a transforming mouse

No easy way to grab battery packs ; Slight fit and finish issues ; Not quite one-size-fits-all

PERFORMANCE AWARD!

Cyborg R.A.T. 9 Wireless Gaming Mouse Review

 

In Cyborg's mouse range the top end model is the R.A.T. 9 which is a product which takes their unique mouse design and turns it wireless. Today we have the ultra-customisable R.A.T. 9 connected to our test system to find out if this product is style...

Cyborg R.A.T 9 Gaming Mouse Review

 

Thee best mouse that money can buy.

completely customizable physically, superb performance, weights system, Precision Aim Mode helps, two battery cartridges for 24/7 wireless gaming, additional scroll wheel is awesome

side buttons aren’t really accessible, Precision Mode button is hard to press and hold, adjusted palm rest rattles a bit

The R.A.T 9’s wireless station is another great design choice. No, not for its actual form and factor, though it does look a bit cute. The wireless station can dock your weights and charge the device’s battery cartridges. Yes, cartridges. There are two...

Saitek Cyborg V.7 Keyboard Review

 

There is nothing more enjoyable than the feeling of smooth metal along one's fingertips to keep focused. We build computers with care, picking each part using careful attention after long thought and consideration. Yet many of us still can't bring...

Useful and easy to press macro keys ; Plethora of lighting effects and combinations ; Specific metal plated keys ; Responsive ; Many options to adjust height of keyboard and palmrest ; Pass through full powered USB and audio ; Looks great on any desk

Lack of blue lighting, if that's your thing ; Lighting can be a bit distracting depending on the angle you look at it ; Certain aspects of programming it could be clearer ; Volume adjustment not very precise

Searching for a new keyboard, I look for style as well as quick performance. The Saitek Cyborg keyboard delivers strongly on both. In all of my time with it, I noticed quick reaction and no sign of lag. It felt amazingly comfortable under my fingers...

"Great IF you modify your gaming surface."

 

The optics of this particular mouse are so sensitive that it registers the smallest movement at the highest DPI setting however it also registers and is confused by even minor reflections at ALL DPI settings. What this means is that the device DOES NOT...

Multiple DPI setting

Very difficult change modes, button too stiff.

"Sub-par Laser"

 

Nice design, great customization options. solid feeling

Laser stopped working properly. I read another review on this site and it said that it still worked on a white piece of paper, so that's what I'm doing now.

Consumer review by:

"cool design, lots of customizing, but poor sensor"

 

the mouse is a good idea, and the adjustable parts are cool. But the 1 issue EVERYONE i have ever seen with these mice (rat9, rat7, ect) is the sensor fails and is a very poor quality for a gaming mouse. and when you are playing a fps and you are...

adjustable sides.

the sensor is **** poor.
