Tracking problems


I wold recommend this mouse highly if it wasn't for the fact that the laser goes out in little to no time.

Very comfortable and customizable

First 6 months of owning the mouse it stopped tracking, I returned it and was given a newer model and after another year that one stopped tracking as well. I don't think it is too much to ask for a mouse to last more than a year

End of life review


I found the mouse to be plenty heavy without the included weight system. I did own this mouse for about 4 1/2 years which would have been 1 year if I hadn't been able to replace the switches. I have owned a logitech mx518 since 2006 and it still works...

Comfortable ; Customizable ; Nice button layout ; Accurate sensor for a laser ; Good external build quality ; Thumb rest ; Decent software ; The overall user experience I had with this mouse is actually fairly good. I have big hands and use palm grip,...

My right mouse button did fail prematurely with this mouse after about a year. I replaced both switches with new omron switches then. ( this is why I really can't give this mouse a high rating.) ; The braided cable got stiff and looks horrible. I can't...

After using this mouse for 1 year it now sits in my mouse drawer. It works it looks good and I know I spent a fortune on it. However I get better gaming performance form cheaper mice that are less than half the price. When buying a mouse for gaming and...

Nice Feel and construction ; Nice adjustable features ; Looks Kewl

sometimes it will not track correctly and requires tapping it on the mouse pad to work. I blew it out with compressed air can and would still do it ; High price tag for a mouse ; Not as accurate as a cheap Logitech Mouse I have in shooter games ;...

Looks like a Transformer


Upon showcasing it to my friends, one of them commented "It looked like a Transformer" After initially getting my hands on a Glossy White model with the mechanism for the Palm Slide Tray not unlocking I switched it out for this Model.

Works perfectly for my stupidly big hands. It has a great feel and works great for gaming ; I would definitely like to note that this is my first gaming mouse so its great to have multiple posibilities for Mouse weight, Palm rest size , and DPI...

The X and Y axis "lock up" in a sense that you can move it up and down or left to right which gets albeit it doesn't happen very often, It does get annoying especially while gaming ; The slide tray is starting to feel a little wobbly ; As someone else...

Not much longevity.


If you want to buy a new mouse every 9 months then feel free to buy it. Otherwise I would get something that's more consistent.

Love the feel and weight customization of the mouse. I also really love the ability to map the buttons to whatever key I want. As far as when it's working its a really good mouse

This is my second Rat mouse and both of the mice around the 9 month mark would periodically stop tracking vertically. For about 6 seconds at a time the mouse will only let you move right to left then all of a sudden it will snap out of it and start...

Terrible Sensor


Would be a good mouse if it hadn't stopped working.

Adjustable in several ways, and so I could make it comfortable

Sensor stopped working on anything but white paper after about 5 months. Used it for several months on paper and then finally replaced it

Good Overall Mouse


As far as mice go, this one's pretty good, especially for the cost, it's just not ''perfect''. My only complaints are all minor: It takes quite awhile to set it up for optimal performance, the horizontal scroll wheel isn't internally processed as such,...

Great mouse that works


I got this in exchange for a competitors mouse that bricked. I wish I would have saved time and just got this mouse in the first place. Worked great first time I plugged it in. More DPI than you will ever need on the highest resoltions. Aimer button is...
