I purchased the Cyborg RAT 9 about 3 weeks ago, and must say, its pretty damn good. I've no complaints. For a wireless mouse, its response is terrific, no lag, and I play a lot of FPS. The ability to customise its shape/dimensions is great, really lets you find the most comfortable size to suit. Battery life is fine, and as it comes with a spare battery, when it starts flashing, it is less than 5 seconds to pull out the battery, plug it in to charge and replace with the fresh battery. Some reviews said it was difficult removing the battery - not so, it clicks in, and pulls out very easily. It came with a number of weights which you can add into an internal chamber, I gave that a go but didn't see the point, so removed them all. As a result, the mouse is nice and light and very responsive. Some of the other reviews said that the base of the mouse was metal, which made me a little apprehensive. It is; however the pads the mouse makes contact with your mouse pad elevate it, so its not like you're dragging a metal base all over your desk. The ability to change the sensitivity cannot be underestimated - a quick click - located just below the scroll wheel - and you can up/down the sensitivity very easily. Similarly the 'headshot' button, which on depression temporarily slows the mouse, is great. Located by your thumb, its very accessible and a great feature. Build quality is very good, it feels well made and very robust.

Highly recommended.

After recently building a PC, I decided that I needed a High-end gaming mouse to go with it.

I needed a wireless mouse, with good battery life, great responsiveness, and a few customisable buttons.

The packaging for start, is very nice. Expensive feeling packaging, makes the experience a lot better, and would create a great gift, as it definitely looks £85 packaged.

As you open the box, you're faced with the Mouse itself, a tin containing spare panels and weights, and the wired unit for receiving the mouse functions.

Again, you can see and feel the quality on the mouse, as far as looks and quality goes, this mouse would receive 10/10 in all area's.

However, The functionality lets this mouse down a little, sometimes the mouse itself is unstable and can rock when the palm rest is fully extended.

Also, I find the scroll wheel only works on 50% of my games, meaning I have lost some functionality, and having to lean over to the keyboard to press the key, when really, the mouse is just under performing.

I also have some issue's with battery life; if my PC isn't turned on for 3 or more days, I find that the battery is down to the final 10%.

Also, I find the programming software bad, you have to load your own custom profiles every time the PC is turned on, as the mouse doesn't store them (which for the price, I would expect a tiny on board memory unit to remember the 3 customisable profiles that have been created)

All in all, the Mouse has let itself down every since it was turned on,
It looks good, and feels nice, and does everything it says on the tin, I was just expecting a little bit of a wow factor, considering it is one of the most expensive gaming mouses on the market.

10/10 Looks
6/10 Functionality.

I've searched high and low for a gaming mouse that I'm 100% happy with, and I've finally found it. I've gone through a Razer Imperator, a Razer Abyssus, a Roccat Kone Plus, and a couple of budget numbers all in the last 4 months. The two Razers were fantastic, admittedly, but a good portion of the surface is covered in shiny plastic that I find too slippery for extended gaming sessions. The Roccat mouse suffered greatly from reliability issues and the mouse wheel ceased working after a couple of weeks. And the budget mice, well, the age-old adage of "You get what you pay for" rings true.

So I decided to give the RAT 9 a go. My friend had the RAT 7 (essentially the wired version of the RAT 9), and he gave it a glowing recommendation. Furthermore, I had heard many good things about it... and it looks so damn cool.

I went with 9 (the wireless version) over 7 (the wired version) for a couple of reasons. Namely, 9 features a few minor adjustments that help with stability and protecting the laser from dust particles. Secondly, the back of my computer is a mess of cables, and I'm sick of constantly adjusting my mouse so it doesn't catch on anything or restrict my movement. I'm pleased to report that the fact that this mouse is wireless (often seen as a big no-no amongst the gaming community) will have no adverse affect on your performance. To paraphrase someone else - you could glue a fake wire onto it, tell someone it was wired, and they'd be none the wiser. It's lightning fast.

The ability to heavily customise the shape of the mouse is another big draw for it. My set-up is to have the raised palm rest all the way back, the thumb rest all the way back and out as wide as it can go, and I have the big little finger rest. I've never known such comfort from a mouse.
