Sleek design, cutting-edge form factor and a host of programmable action buttons help you keep ahead of the competition no matter what the game.

You can even use the software to assign programmable features to the Precision Aim button, and then use it to execute keyboard commands like macros and keybindings - - a deadly weapon that will hit your enemy exactly where it hurts the most.

Take control of your games

With the included programming software, you can create an unlimited number of profiles. For example, create a unique profile for each game or character, or for different builds (sniper, tank, healer, and more). Within each profile, you can customize you DPI settings, set Precision Aim sensitivity, create powerful macros and set keybindings. Each profile allows for nine user-definable commands via three programmable buttons over three modes.

Customise your DPI settings

Four user-definable DPI settings range from 450 to 3500 and the DPI button lets you easily cycle through your custom settings.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice bit of kit but a bit wide. 28 Nov 2012
I have been musing over buying one of these for a while now but the price seemed a bit excessive for a mouse. Anyway, I got a good deal on one so I gave it a go.

This mouse has lots of good things and one bad thing. I'll start with the bad thing and get it out the way - it's a bit on the wide side. If it was about 1cm narrower it would be ideal for me. This is not a mouse for people with small hands. The way my hand sits on the mouse makes me a little prone to accidentally clicking the right mouse button. I have only had the R.A.T for a day so this could just be muscle memory from using my previous mouse. I am playing Skyrim on PC at the moment and I find that drawing the bow by holding down the right mouse button, aiming, and releasing, can require an extra bit of concentration to prevent the mouse from moving while releasing the right mouse button.

On the upside the mouse looks amazing - a bit like a futuristic tank - and has lots of nice features. The mouse is 3500DPI which is more than enough precision for most things. The mouse allows you to change the sensitivity on the fly through the use of a small rocker switch just behind the scroll wheel. Rocking it forward speeds the mouse up so you can look around quickly while rocking it backwards slows it down for precision aiming. This has 4 sensitivities indicated by small lights on the left hand side of the mouse cover.

There is a mode button to the left of the left mouse button which changes the colour of the button's backlight, but other than that I have no idea what it does. I imagine that it allows you program the other buttons to do different things but I haven't felt the need to use it yet.

This mouse, despite looking like it will fold out into a tiny transformer and try to enslave all humanity, is astonishingly comfortable to hold and use.

I have average adult-male sized hands, and have in the past found a lot of mice a little undersized and uncomfortable. This mouse is still fairly compact, but it has quite a low profile and is very wide, meaning that your hand rests very comfortably on the mouse itself. The various 'plates' support your palm well, and the thumb rest is a nice touch.

As mentioned in Cpt. Tangerine's review, if you have small hands, the width of the mouse may be a bit of a strain, but for those with medium to large hands, it's very comfortable!

The buttons feel very sturdy and, unlike a number of mice I have had in the past, does not rattle at all in its socket. It depresses very nicely and the overall feel of the materials is great too.

The mouse is very stylish in its unique way. It is a very peculiar look, and I can't imagine it appeals to everyone, but if you like the look of it in the photos, it looks just as brilliant first-hand, and not at all tacky.

The high-quality materials used to surface the top give it a fairly premium looking build quality, but you can see from the underside that it is just a plastic frame - nothing special. You can commend them here, however, for applying good materials where you see them, and saving money where you don't. Not sure how this will affect the lifespan of the mouse, but as mentioned, the parts seem well made and well fitted, so I expect the mouse to be pretty damn durable and last a fair while.

The tracking of the mouse seems great, and I never get any skips or ghost movements, unlike most over mouses I have used, and the R.A.T.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great mouse, even for small hands! 2 Jan 2014
I love this mouse! I chose the matte option as I prefer the grippy feel. It glides effortlessly across my Corsair MM200 mouse mat, while it seems sturdy and is a good weight - others have commented that it is too light, but for me the weight is perfect.

I'm 15 years old with tiny hands, yet it is still really comfortable to hold. The adjustable DPI settings are convenient too, as I can have the mouse extremely sensitive for gaming and then easily switch to a more sensible setting for other tasks. The forward/back buttons on the left hand side are useful and well positioned.

While it is a bit more pricey than a typical computer mouse, I think that it is worth the extra for the great build quality and higher sensitivity! I would recommend this to anyone who wants a great gaming mouse without spending a fortune.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feels like a £50 mouse 13 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
After reading many reviews on these R.A.T mice and putting it off for a long long time I decided to give it a go and purchase the base model, and I wasn't disappointed. To start with the mouse is a very solid build, all of the buttons as well as the whole mouse feel sturdy and the buttons click very sharply and don't travel very long before they respond, this was a downside of my last mouse, the sharkoon fireglider, another brilliant value mouse, but it soon began to show with constant use. This mouse feels like it'll last much longer, it also looks the part for any gamer to say the least, I love the mechanical look of this mouse and it suits my PC well. Its very comfortable to hold as its nice and wide and the thumb rest is a nice added bonus.

I've read many reviews of all of these mice from the R.A.T 3 to 9. All of them have great reviews but they all also have a few that explain severe unreliability, and any of the mice breaking after a very short period of use. I wouldn't disregard these reviews as there must surely be some quality control issues with madcatz, however mine works and works very well. I'm glad I bought the base model for £35 because for the way this mouse feels and works, I feel I should've paid almost double that.

The maximum DPI setting for this mouse is 3500, which is 100 less than my old mouse. However this has proven to be a good thing I think as I found my last mouse to be a little twitchy when moving it around during gameplay, especially on games such as the Arkham series. This problem is now totally gone thanks to this mouse, when I want the camera to stay still, it does.
