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

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.

This mouse is fantastic. It is extremely comfortable, it looks fantastic, it performs beautifully and it's DPI adjustment is is spot on. The option to set your own specific DPI range for 3 modes gives you a lot of freedom in games. The 4 levels of DPI allows for less extreme gaps too. The braided fibre cable and gold plated USB are very good value for a mouse of this price. Setting up the mouse and it's settings is quick and simple.
The postage takes a while if, like me, you live on the south tip of the emerald isle and not in the UK. That said, it only took 6 days. The mouse was well packaged and no damage to the box could be discerned.
Against its rival, the logitech G500, I believe it pulls ahead. Having 4 DPI settings instead of 3, as well as being user defined gaps, makes it more usable. It lacks a weight system, but gains more customisable options with no fiddly buttons underneath the mouse. It also gains the more durable and responsive fibre cable and gold plated USB, and looks like a piece of modern art. (The good kind).
Overall a perfect choice for a gaming mouse. I recommend this mouse to gamers of all skill levels.

Phenomenal mouse. Fast Delivery and so accurate. For the last few years I have been using a Trust RedBull Xtreme gaming mouse. Which is also of very high quality. But the RAT3 is far superior in usability and comfort.

I was very sceptical about buying the RAT3 simply because of it's ergonomics. I was worried it would be uncomfortable, and or irritating over long periods of time. Looks however can be deceiving and were so very rightly in this case!

It is very comfortable, and adjustable too.

The buttons to change DPI settings and Mode button, are a little stiff, but I'm sure over time they will wear in properly.

The mouse is silky smooth and due to the recommendation from a friend, I will recommend this even further. It's simply great. Precise, fast, and functional.

I love it.

This is my personal opinion, coming from a mild gamer, but most internet browser and professional video editor.

Take care

I was walking around a shop and saw this on display and was wowed by the styling and then discovered it was on sale there (so I didnt buy it from here). I read the reviews here and it seemed to get a good write up, so I went for it.

Really glad I did. Everything about it says "quality". Even the box has a magnet lock for the lid which made opening and closing it to look once more at my purchase more enjoyable... in a childish sort of way... but I am the geek that I am! Once I got it home (via a bemused bunch of regulars at my local pub who I just had to show it to), I plugged it in and followed the scant instructions. It was here that I had a momentary difficulty as programming the 2 keys in their 3 modes was not explained 100%, but was easy enough to figure out. What wasn't so obvious was that you need to load up the mouse profile software each time you use the mouse or it forgets your settings (having no onboard memory). I resolved this by placing the "Profile" software in "startup".

In use, the mouse feels really, really comfortable with an almost rubberised feel to it. I suffer from RSI (being a computer programmer) and it was comfy to hold and I could rest my hand on it (it didnt feel like I was holding it in a claw for instance). Accuracy is really good, with higher DPI meaning faster movement on screen. Being a gamer, I programmed the mouse keys for "auto run" and "view centre" under one of the modes (as a for instance) and was quickly using it more readily than the keyboard. Changing modes is a little tricky as its hard to see what mode you are in. So, I doubt I will change modes unless I need a different set up (such as press to talk).

Cable it really nice, being a sort of fabric and it and the gold connector both speak of its quality build.

It also made my fiancee's 14 year old son jealous as hell, so that was a result. At the price I got it, I cant recommend it highly enough (maybe 4 stars for £40+)
