Cyborg R.A.T. 9 Gaming Mouse


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

Expensive. Battery can be awkward to remove. Plastic mounting arm under thumb rest broke

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

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...

The Cyborg R.A.T. offers wireless functionality with no noticeable impact to gaming or general use when compared to a wired model, it performs exceptionally well. Additionally a high level of build quality is backed up by a hugely flexible design and...

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...

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...

Cyborg R.A.T. 9 review


Looking like something from a Terminator film with its exposed wiring and metal screws, the R.A.T. 9 is a wireless version of the Cyborg R.A.T. 7. It uses the same 5600 DPI tracking laser and is just as customisable, with the added bonus of not needing...

Expensive but excellent wireless gaming mouse

This is the Cyborg R.A.T. 9 gaming mouse by Cyborg, a sub-brand of Mad Catz. The R.A.T. mouse has been around a while now...

If I had to use one word to the describe the Cyborg R.A.T 9 mouse it wouldn’t be awesome, excellent or amazing; it would be Special. It’s a little like owning a supercar, you know it’s expensive, drinks fuel and capable of far more than you, but it’s...

Not as good as it looks...


This is the second R.A.T. 9 mouse that I had the displeasure of using over the last month and a half. The first one was sent back for replacement as the thumb wheel didn't function. Both mice displayed tracking issues and the other issues that I...

High DPI ; Plenty of buttons and a easy to use utility to change the function of each ; Thumb scroll wheel is handy ; Two batteries so you never have to stop playing ; Precision aim button is an interesting idea

High DPI... in theory. Sure, it has up to 5600 DPI, but good luck trying to get it to actually track that well. Sometimes when you click, the cursor will move, even if you don't move the mouse. If you DO use this mouse, be sure to set all DPI settings...

Great mouse...while it works


I assume I just received a faulty model, it happens, and will be contacting their customer support tomorrow for RMA under warranty. I hope I'll receive the same level of customer service I've come to expect from newegg vendors.

Great Feel, I like the multiple scroll wheels and the on the fly sensitivity changes ; Easy to set up multiple profiles and easy to swap between them

About 4 months after I purchased the product the forward thumb button (not the precision aim button) would not function outside of pressing straight down on it. A very awkward position if you're using the thumb rest
