The design is excellent the concept is excellent, the feeling in hand is excellent.
Could be a five star item if Mad Catz care to make the switches extra long life. I have broken two of them in less than two years both left click switch worn out. RMAed both and it went out of warranty. This is the third one I own, still love the feeling in hand, love the dpi switch is so easy to use. But I will not use this mouse for MMO games or RTS games since too many clicks would went through, this mouse simply can't last to coupe with the amount clicks, and MMO, RTS don't really need a high dpi mouse anyway.

One additional problem I notice using this mouse in FPS. The sensor occasionally go hyper like a glitch during game causing my aiming view rotate multiple circles in a blink of an eye. To physically rotate that fast it requires a very long linear movement so I know it's glitching. you can also find similar complains on RAT7 if you search the internet for forum comments. Note this is a RAT7 only issue. does not apply to RAT 9, which is the ones I previous own. I got tired changing battery every day every day so got this wired version instead. Unfortunately, the sensor glitch only appears in RAT7 not in RAT9. So if you are buying one of these, be aware of this issue. A lot forum and review says the glitch is only version 1 issue. Mad Catz has since fixed it, but it is not true. This one I got is a very late version as they moved the brand from cyborg to mad catz now. Glitch is still there. It is very occasionally. I only notice this once or twice per week. Only in game as well, never had this problem on desktop.

Overall I would say an excellent mouse for casual gamers. Other than the glitch, it is very precise and sensitive. And it is such a cool looking mouse!

As said, if you don't do a million click per month, it's probably going to be ok for you.

exceptional mouse! bought this to replace the roccat kova+ because the scroll wheel began to loosen and wobble, thus the scroll wheel became more difficult to carry out the action of scrolling up and down whilst browsing internet pages. the mad catz RAT7 looks, feels and responds amazingly and would go as far as to say its the best mouse i have ever owned.

extra weight components can replace parts of the mouse to make it heavier and therefore tailored more to your liking. the components can have grips, logos or smooth aesthetics and even has an extra pinkie rest on the right hand side if desired! mouse wheel feels very sturdy and robust, extra button next to the main left hand side finger button also.

there is a handy little pin in the back of the mouse which can be detached or left in place which is used to screw/unscrew the other components and help customise the mouse to suit your needs.

everything about the mouse feels extremely sturdy and solid build quality. the dpi sensor is (for me personally) very strategically placed and all in all i cannot fault this mouse one iota and would definitely recommend buying this mouse hands down!

excellent product!

Fantastic mouse (or should I say rat). It's button layout is perfect along with it's adjust-ability. I've had no issues with durability unlike in may reviews, sometimes the sensor gets a little glitchy and the curser doesn't want to move properly, but all I need to do is blow in to it and it works fine. My friend has the M.M.O.7 and I found it had too many buttons unlike this one. The gloss black version, after using it for a few hours it starts to feel dirty and you'll always want to clean it.

Pros
era-gnomic adjust-ability (more so than the M.M.O.7)
Just the right amount of buttons
stylish
Wired (so it doesn't run out of power unlike the R.A.T.9)

Cons
Has durability issues for some people
The gloss version feels dirty quickly
No LEDs on the front (unlike the M.M.O.7)

Had this mouse for around a year. Dpi switch on the mouse only works down now. Even when i turn it down by few seconds turn itself up. Not as comfortable as i thought. I would not buy it again. Aslo random mouse freezer when pointer only moves left or right.
If you want a proper mouse got with razer. I think i will dust up my old Lachesis and use it instead.

This is a review for the RAT5 and then my replacement RAT7.

Update as of Nov 14th 2014
I give up. Replacements so far:
5 x Rat5
1 x Rat7!

This has been over 1yr and 2 months span of time.
Each and every single one has had the same problem. The laser stops working. Just now it was working fine but then stops, however the mouse wheel and buttons all still work.
I only built my new computer a few months ago. I do fresh OS installs every 4 months. So each and every time the drivers are reinstalled via their site. I have used this mouse of a laptop and two other desktop computers. Hell I gave it to someone else for a week to see how they used it. Same issues.

What gets me is I bought a mouse in college over 7-8 years ago and it still works LOL.
I love their design, I really really do. I use the wheel on the side of volume and it is amazing. However the quality of the product is inferior.
I put a post on my FB page, I have many gamer friends and every single one who bought the RAT range has found them faulty. How amazing is that!
One guy has the rat 7 and it double clicks when he wants a single click. Did you know that someone wrote a dedicated script just to stop that because it was such a prevalent issue.

Please trust me when I say DO NOT GET IT.

---------------

Update as of 8th March. I cannot get the mouse to go right unless I smack the mouse. I put up a poll in my clan for those with the mouse. 14 people and every single one has had the exact same issue with the mouse first off not going the way you want it and then just giving up. UNACCEPTABLE.

---------------

As a woman I find it very hard to find a mouse which is for gaming but is small enough my hands.
