RAT 3 or Logitech Mx518?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Assume I like both grips equally. Which is more accurate and durable? Which one has better features/drivers? Thanks in advanced.

I would go with the MX518. cheers.gif

If you have a higher budget, Newegg has the G500 for 35 after rebate -> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826104318&cm_re=g500-_-26-104-318-_-Product

I would vote the MX518. I know the RAT 7/9 have serious issues with their lasers, so it's possbile that the RAT 3 does too. I'd look into that if I were you.

Hmm, the G500 does look nice and cheap after rebate. So sometimes the RATs have issues with their laser? Any use for that many buttons if I dont MMO or RTS?

G500 or mx518, I personally bought the G500 and it's been good since

RAT 3 does not have the "problems" as a owner I may be getting defensive but it's only sensitive lasers, simply means you need to keep it clean, blow in it ever 2 or 3 days.

Never touched the RAT 3 but I'm a former owner of the MX518 and I have nothing but good things to say about it.
