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


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.

The M.O.U.S.9 could have brought the R.A.T’s signature adjustability to the masses. Instead, it strips out most of that unique functionality and replaces it with a heaping dose of nothing. Sure, the mouse offers Bluetooth 4.0 and a laser that works on...

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.

While both of Mad Catz's wireless mobile gaming mice offerings are a tad on the expensive side, the M.O.U.S. 9 stands as the superior model, with a larger, more functional design and a palm rest that locks into place. $130 is a lot to pay for a...

Mad Catz R.A.T. M and M.O.U.S. 9 Gaming Mice Review


The original R.A.T.s are still the more serious gaming mice, but the R.A.T. M and the M.O.U.S. 9 bring interesting mobility features to diversify Mad Catz offerings.

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 device, not sure if worth the headache


If you are dead set on a R.A.T get the 7 it is the same as this but with a wire so you dont have to worry about the mouse turning off while in a game. ----- Overall the R.A.T 9 is NOT by any means a bad device, it simply has some quirks that are not...

Programmable buttons (5) I dont count the 3 modes as it is not easy to change them while playing a game ; Wireless ; Has weights ; Can be configured to fit any (Right) hand ; SEE CONS

Wireless, the batteries begin losing their charge VERY FAST after about 3 months, I have to swap them after 2 League matches (30-45 minute matches) ; The software DOES NOT SUPPORT AUTOMATIC PROFILE SWITCHING. you cannot link a profile to an EXE. THE...

Good mouse while it lasted


i absolutely loved the mouse while it worked i had no complaints until the problems started. i looked into the issue and i was not the only one to have this issue with this particular mouse. so i want to recommend this mouse thinking i just ended up...

Great aesthetic design fits very nice in my hand. very responsive and loads of extras. rechargeable batteries

price and after 11/2 yrs it started acting up. the dpi settings would automatically change on its own. the tracking would go haywire and barely work. and it would start doing this at random and then it would run fine and then it would start doing it...

Comfortable but has issues


worthy upgrade if you have the $ I don't have a complaint with the battery life many people talk bad on. It really not all that bad since it comes w/ an extra battery.

The adjustments you can make (physically) are really nice ; Never thought the delay of my old wireless Logitech mx mouse was bad, but after using this thing, there is a huge improvement in the responsiveness when playing FPS

Same issue that a lot of people have with connectivity ; A) you have to remember to flip the switch on the mouse to OFF when you change the battery or the connection is done untill u unplug from tower ; B) When the computer goes into sleep mode,...

Rat 9 Dies After 2 Months of Light Use


No refund or replacement was offered, but to be fair, the return policy doesn't cover anything that has been in use for 2 months.

Beautifully designed, and fits any hand perfectly

Died after 2 months of light use. I used this mouse no more and 1 hour a day and it crapped out on me after two months
