Mad Catz M.O.U.S. 9 Review


Three years ago, gaming peripheral do-it-all Mad Catz surprised everyone by coming out with an extremely unusual mouse, the R.A.T, which stood out because of its incredible adjustability. Want to change the grip? No problem. Want to make the mouse...

Includes zoom wheel and precision control button ; Adjustable palmrest

Plastics look cheap ; Poor ergonomics ; No hardware DPI adjustment ; Extremely overpriced

Though packed with features, the overpriced M.O.U.S.9 tosses the adjustability that made its predecessor, the R.A.T, unique. Its cheap plastics and lack of ergonomic design are unworthy of a mouse sold for half as much.

Mad Catz M.O.U.S. 9


The Mad Catz M.O.U.S. 9 looks and feels like a flexible, albeit pricey, wireless gaming mouse, even if Mad Catz tries to promote it as a mouse for non-gamers.

Flexible design. Comfortable

Expensive. Sensor isn't quite as gaming-oriented as other Mad Catz mice

Mad Catz made a very strange choice when it made the M.O.U.S. 9 wireless mouse. It pitched the mouse as a powerful, everyday, non-gaming mouse. Despite its name being M.O.U.S. 9, its design coming from Mad Catz' R.A.T. gaming mice series, and its...

Mad Catz R.A.T. 9 Professional Wireless Gaming Mouse


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.

Mad Catz M.O.U.S.9 Gaming Mouse


Enthusiasts know Mad Catz and their gaming-oriented peripherals. In fact, the company motto is All About the Game. Under their Tritton, Saitek, and Cyborg sub-brands, they've offered keyboards, headsets, game controllers, mice, flight sticks and other...

Battery lasts for a year ; Unique shape ; 10 programmable buttons ; Intuitive software makes programming the mouse easy ; Mac and Windows support ; Configuration-free Bluetooth 4.0

Very expensive ; Small glitches in Mac software ; Unique shape may not work for everyone

The performance of the M.O.U.S.9 mouse was excellent when considered as a non-gaming mouse. The slower polling rate introduces a slight but noticeable lag in fast-paced action games. The one-year battery life (if achieved) is also excellent.

MadCatz M.O.U.S. 9 GameSmart Mouse Review


Yesterday we caught a R.A.T. and immediately affixed sensors and probes to monitor its performance on the GR rat wheel. Upon completing out grueling series of cheese retrieval maze challenges, we played some games. The R.A.T.m [...]

Great performance for mobile gamers ; Solid battery life ; Great versatility ; Easy and expansive software suite ; Larger and more comfortable than R.A.T.m

Pricey ; Brief moments of lag from reception interference

Mad Catz RAT 9 Review


When I reviewed the RAT 7, I was impressed. It's a great mouse, but I always knew that Mad Catz was holding back. The company did so, of course, to make the RAT 9. But the RAT 7 was so good! What else could be done to make an already excellent gaming...

"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.

"awesome mouse, a must have"


its a very nice mouse, i'd definitely recommend it to others who want to have a wireless mouse but still want to continue gaming and dont want to wait until their battery is recharged.

its very strong and very customizable, for the real gamer its a must-have

the weights are hard to adjust

"Great with small flaws"


This mouse is pretty much a logitech g5 that you can shift all the parts on, it feels about the same in quality, but yeah, it's nice to be able to customize. I slapped on the larger pinky rest and thumb rest and my hand never touches the mouse pad...I...

-super customizable

-doesn't track well on all surfaces

"Laser stopped working right"


Not much to say beyond the pros/cons. This is a well built, solid mouse. It looks great and feels better. You can adjust just about everything to get the exact feel that you want.

Can be adjusted to fit perfectly, well made, quality construction

Laser stopped registering on most surfaces after ~2 months of use.
