I have owned my R.A.T. 3 for about half a year now. This is my first quality mouse and I must say that I am pretty happy with it. Everything about it screams high quality - the cable, the mouse wheel, the mouse buttons. It's a claw-grip mouse, so be aware of that, you won't be able to just rest your hand on the mouse. The left button is "rapid-fire" and indeed, it lives up to its name.

Of course, like every product, it isn't perfect. What Cyborg have gone for with this mouse is an entirely software solution to programming the buttons. What this means is that the settings you have made to the programmable buttons are stored on your hard drive, rather than the mouse. If you own a Windows or a Mac, that is ok, since the software supports those operating systems. On Linux though, you are stuck with the default forward and back. Another thing about linux usage is that you will have to tell X11 to stop detecting some of the mouse buttons, as it can get stuck waiting for a button to get "released", while in reality the mouse won't send that signal (for example the mode switching button).

EDIT:
After about 6 months of use, the mouse has remained in excellent condition. I only had a problem with the back side button getting a bit stuck, I opened the mouse, cleaned it up and it's as good as new ! I have not used the mode button as I think that having to cycle through 3 modes to get what I want takes too long in a game like Starcraft 2, though that's just personal preference. As a mouse, its every click and every movement still give off a great response and I have never felt that it is limiting me in any way.

I have now tried Logitech G9x and if it's a comfort comparison, RAT3 wins !

I use the mouse mainly for photo work (don't get on with the pen / tablet) it's a lot more comfortable to use and you can program the side buttons etc for different uses depending on what your working on. Highly recommend it for graphics work

Strong build on this mouse unfortunately it falls flat on hotkeys that constantly fight with me and I believe this is down to a lack of testing with players to see if the buttons interfere with their experience. It certainly did with me especially the thumb rest

The R.A.T does certainly gives you control of the DPI and also allows you to ensure that you have massive control on the different ways you can play your games. Profiles are on the fly and depending on the way you play will definitely make you versatile for three types of game genres.

League of Legends players will certainly benefit from this, but I feel that you are better off with the R.A.T 5 or even 7 depending on your needs as the R.A.T 3 does not come with weights and is not supported because of the way it is built and the fact of the price tag so you're basically getting what you paid for.

The design is comfortable for the most part with the exception of the hotkeys resting on the thumb rest which made my experience quite annoying to say the least. After a good while I did get used to it but i feel if they made the buttons on the thumb rest more subtle, it will be a much better mouse. I did particularly like the way the buttons are integrated within the top of the mouse so that I can access a hotkey without having to shift the entire hand to press it.

/// Note ///
As of the 16th February, I have replaced my mouse for the "Anker® 8200 DPI High Precision Mouse" as the springs were failing and needed replacing since it was out of warranty. Granted it did last me for three years with moderate to heavy use so it all comes to what you want to use it for.

Ok, i play various video games including cod and mass effect, and my old logitech wireless mouse was not cutting the response i needed....so i did a bit of research and came up with the RAT series, my budget was 40 so i decided to go with the RAT 3. As it looked very very cool and had the 3200 dpi that i needed.

A few days later it arrived...opened it up from an incredible box to find the mouse. Plugged it into my computer and installed the software and it was ready to go, I was able to use the programming software to use the extra buttons for added features in the games and it has three modes you can program and there is a simple button on the mouse that will change colour when you press it to represent different modes. It has a very good cable is extremely lightweight and too be honest AWESOME

Recieved this mouse a little a while ago, it's comfortable, nice smoothness to it's movement, DPI change on the fly is nice too. Unortunately I will be looking at replacing it. A month after delivery, the scroll wheel snapped around the detector and just span freely and uselessly within its housing. Amazon were very good replacing that one for me. The replacement, after several months of excellent service has simply packed in. I turned my computer on and it was not recieving power. Tried it in every other USB port on the PC, nothing, other devices worked fine in those fine ports. I don't know whether its more expensive cousins are more robust, but this appears to be a touch unreliable. A real shame, ahd the makings of a nice mouse.
