Mad Catz R.A.T. M


The Mad Catz R.A.T. M is a flexible wireless gaming mouse you can take anywhere, but its small size and big price tag hold it back.

Convenient design. Powerful gaming mouse

Uncomfortable for large hands. Palm rest tends to push back into the mouse body when extended

Gaming mice are usually complicated affairs, and wireless gaming mice tend to be even more involved. Besides a cable, high-end gaming mice usually have a charging cradle and are designed to sit quietly on a desk when not in use. This is great if you...

MAD CATZ R.A.T. M Wireless Mobile Gaming Mouse


Mad Catz arguably changed the gaming mouse market when they released their R.A.T. into the wild. With an unusual appearance and a previously unapproachable level of customization, the subsequent R.A.T. series of mice went on to win multiple awards and...

Solid construction ; 5D button is a great innovation ; Positive, tactile button feedback on every button ; Surprisingly comfortable ; Great tracking on multiple surfaces ; Long battery life ; Included Bluetooth 4.0 USB adapter, stores in mouse

Too expensive ; Precision aim feature not an option ; 120Hz polling rate ; Wing" button a little hard to press ; 5D button needs a little refinement ; Unfortunate marketing direction ; New Bluetooth technology - no backwards compatibility ; Extended...

Great performance for mobile gamers ; Solid battery life ; Great versatility ; Easy and expansive software suite

Pricey ; A bit too small for some and/or prolonged use ; Brief moment of lag from reception interference

Mad Catz MCB437100002/04/1


I owned the R.A.T. 7 for a while but was looking for a more mobile version. I thought this one would be perfect for me. Same features as the full size R.A.T. versions

The adjustable palm rest does not lock into place like the full size versions was constantly moving on me. What prompted this review is that the Bluetooth dongle quit working and now I can't use the mouse for now. I will have to find another dongle to use
