Mad Catz R.A.T.TE review: Tournament ready

 

Mad Catz is renowned for its excellent gaming peripherals, ranging from precision accessories for flight simulation buffs to racing wheels to keyboards, but

The R.A.T.TE can be bought off the distributors Origin's website as well as other online retailers and retails for Rs 6,990, which is a tad expensive. However, the R.A.T.TE is meant to be that weapon of choice for gamers who need the perfect device to...

Mad Catz R.A.T.TE review: Tournament ready - The Times of India

 

Does Mad Catz's R.A.T.TE professional mouse live up to be worthy of the R.A.T. cape and cowl, or does it become the black S.H.E.E.P of the family? Here's our review...

1. 8200 dpi Phillips Doppler Sensor ; 2. Accurate and lightweight ; 3. Superb ergonomics with adjustable palm rest & Precision Aim button

Bottom line, the R.A.T.TE is a fantastic mouse that brings the performance, at a price.

Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. TE and Mad Catz R.A.T. TE Review: Better Than They Look

 

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Terrible mouse overall in terms of performance

 

don't believe the myth that laser sensors are much better. There are lots of flaws and the optical sensor was the way to go. The liftoff will be a problem for many and there won't be any solution until much later. Stick to your optical sensors! This is...

The comfort and buttons were spot on. The thumb rest was a plus and the modes were pretty good. The software is simple to use and customizing the buttons and macros were very easy. The accuracy of the sensor was a tad bit off, you wouldn't be able to...

the dreaded z-axis laser sensor issue. With all of this madness, my aim in fps games was terrible and if I slightly lifted the mouse towards me, the cursor would move to the bottom right diagonally. Lifting this mouse just a tad bit will incur the...

Its growing on me... a lot!

 

I didnt like this mouse at first because the cord was getting caught up in a cable mess causing my mouse to move on its own(from the cable moving the mouse since the mouse is really really light) After I organized the mess, it's workin like a charm....

Super lightweight Easy Hotkey interface Looks beautiful next to my CM Storm Quickfire TK keyboard Laser sensor works flawlessly Thick durable cord that stems from the left side which is nice. Quiet scroll wheel

Could use more buttons but I knew what I was getting before I bought it, so not taking an egg. I've heard people say this is a "cheap" plastic mouse, but the materials used on this product are very nice and you can tell there was a lot of though behind...

Good while it worked

 

Waste of money, should have purchased a reputable brand. I think a decent mouse should last a couple years, at least.

It used to work, that was nice!

Stopped working after 6 months.

Bad Quality, Should Have Gone With Corsair or EVGA

 

So like i said, apparently the button connectors (or however you call it) are bad, in a few months the front thumb button started getting damaged, sometimes when i pressed it it didint activate or work. And now, just moments ago, only after 9 months of...

-Feels very comfortable -Customizable buttons -Features like sniper button, DPI switch, modes

- RMB and LMB are glossy so a lot of residue builds up -Sniper button is too far in the front, making me stretch my hand into an uncomfortable position, a position that doesnt work for gaming -Apparently its bad quality(other)
