Cyborg Gaming - V.7 Keyboard, R.A.T. 7 Mouse and G.L.I.D.E. 7 Surface Review

 

Today will have the chance to look at the top of the range gaming keyboard from Cyborg, as well as their wired version of the R.A.T. gaming mouse we looked at before and an accompanying gaming surface. A full suite of matching peripherals could be the...

Another set of quality products from Cyborg which any gamer would be delighted to use.

Cyborg's Rat 7 adjustable gaming mouse

 

When I find something that fits just right, I tend to stick with it. With running shoes, it's New Balance's 1060, whose model number has reliably ticked up once a year since I started wearing them. After five years, I'm now onto the 1064. For jeans,...

Lasted 2 days

 

If the scroll wheel had lasted my use I would have likely kept with it until it wore out. Since it didn't, and I'd have to either send this in for repair, or order a replacement part to install myself, I've ordered a 2014 Razer Naga instead.

My boss bought my coworker and I this mouse as a gift while he was on vacation (guess he found a great deal). This was a couple of years ago. When he gave it to me, I was already using a Razer Imperator which I was quite comfortable with, so I never...

The mouse lasted two days before the plastic pin that connected to scroll wheel to the scroll sensor broke. I took it apart to verify that this was the case (a simple procedure which was nice to find). It was easy to tell that this happened because...

Great Mouse

 

I love this mouse. It's beefy like a Rat. Awesome dpi.

Consumer review by:

Not great

 

Would not recommend. There are better mice for much better prices. (Currently rocking a Razer DeathAdder 3.5g. Better than this thing in every way)

Cool design, sturdy hardware (most of it), customizable construction, still works

I've had this phone for just over a year, and here are just a few of the problems I've had with it ; Poor driver/software support. The drivers on the CD wouldn't install on Windows 7 64 bit, so I was forced to do some hacky-workarounds to get it to...

Pray it never breaks

 

Great physical feel which is highly modular and customizable. Highly sensitive and accurate sensor

ZERO customer service. My left mouse button broke about 15 months in. The product carries a two-year warranty, which would be great if only I could get some sort of response from Mad Catz. They've yet to respond to my first ticket (which I opened 22...

ZAP! - ESD FAIL

 

I loved this mouse and was heartbroken when it died. If you can get the wireless version I recommend it.

Great feel, customizable, accurate

ESD. Wired mouse with an aluminum chassis and metal parts/screws is a bad combo. Almost every time I would sit down and touch this mouse I would feel a small zap if static electricity. After about 3 months I noticed the LED wasn't working and...

Great mouse

 

Would have liked a CD with the drivers and software preloaded but not really a biggie.

Complete customization ; Great price (best buy was asking upwards of $115 for it) ; It just feels right in your hand

shipped through UPS (seriously with a box marked newegg why would they leave it on the front step and not ask anyone to sign for it. at least they got it right this time last time they left a 15lb bag of rice on my front step.)

Consumer review by:

Awkward.

 

It would be a good mouse if I had smaller hands.

Lots of things can be adjusted to make it feel how you want. Had a nice weight to it with all of the weights on. Drivers and program worked well, and the "Sniper" button was useful

This was one of the most awkward mice I have ever used. If you have bigger hands such as myself, then you'll have a difficult time finding a good way to handle it. The side buttons were never able to be pressed in quick succession. Returned after 2...

Poor

 

Awesome customizability

Their driver site has been offline for 3 days. No disc included, instructions say to download off the site. Not a peep from their customer support after 2 support tickets. Mouse is effectively a 2 button microsoft mouse without drivers. Had to switch...
