This isn't really an issue with the sensors that are out today unless you're in the small category of people that play with ridiculously high sensitivities.

A common way to solve tracking issues with the RAT 7 was to remove the pad around the sensor on the bottom. A lot of people did that and it worked for some of them. As far as I can see from the Screenshots - http://cyborggaming.com/prod/rat7albino.htm Middle one second line - they seem to have replaced it with plastic, which will either be an improvement, or a near impossible nuisance to get rid of, short of melting it of course. No confirmation of this however, its just what I'm guessing it is from what I can see there.

Edit: In review of this - I don't mean to say the Philips TwinEye Sensor they used in the original RAT 7 is not without it's issues (Cloth Mouse Pads = Murder, etc.). So now its down to finding out if they used the same one again or not. They added a second Sensor, so they would have technically needed to re-size the first one, no?

2nd Edit: Apparently the very first batch was the one with the most issues, here, an April 2011 RAT 7 has a lot less issues, so we can only assume that hopefully the Albino version has taken care of all (almost all?) the issues the original RAT 7 had?

6.4K DPI. Damn. With 5.6K you could simply flick it and the cursor would scream across. With this, you could probably just poke it. Lol. Far as I know only 3 Mice so far with the Dual-Sensor design, 2 are from Razer and now this one. Nice.

I suppose the mouse will still be too heavy, too large and will scratch your surface unless you put 2 layers of fetes.
Far as being too heavy, you did take the weights out right? That lightens it up 6 Grams. And you can modify it's size, although yes it will remain slightly bulky even so.

Quote:
I am ecstatic that everything seems to be turning to a white color scheme. It's a nice change up from the usual black, red, blue, or green color scheme.
Lol. It's made some people call this "Apple Mouse" unfortunately. /Sigh. Only problem with the coloring IMO is it doesn't quite match the Keyboard if you went for a dark one. Or the Monitors most likely.

P.S. Now if Mad Catz could improve their Customer Support.......

The Albino version looks really nice by itself but like Implied said, it kind of clashes with the overal theme of my desktop. When this version was announced however, it brought to light just how much I like the design so I bought one on Newegg. Hopefully I won't be experience any of the tracking issues.. my sensitivity isn't very high

The problem with something like that is matching the whole color scheme and I'm not about to jump on the Mac. Any idea if the old one got updated too?

Looks pretty good to me - I think I'll give it a try. I'm using a DeathAdder at the moment so will be interesting to see the difference.

If it tracks the same, weighs just as much, has the same crappy feeling side buttons, and still has the same tiny/thin mouse feet that allows the mouse to scrape against your mouse pad like the original, then its a piece of garbage.

So back on the Philips Twin-Eye Sensor that caused a lot of issues with the original RAT 7:

quote from the Albino RAT 7 Page:
Quote:
(Source) 6400 DPI - Featuring a new generation 'twin eye' laser sensor that reads each axis separately for pinpoint accuracy, the R.A.T. 7 tracks up to a stunning 6 meters per second. Pro gamers who favor low sensitivity with high movement speed preferences will always experience correct tracking and precision.
And from the original RAT 7 page:

(Source) 5600 DPI - Featuring a new generation 'twin eye' laser sensor that reads each axis separately for pinpoint accuracy, the R.A.T. 7 tracks up to a stunning 6 meters per second. Pro gamers who favor low sensitivity with high movement speed preferences will always experience correct tracking and precision.
I'm thinking they probably just copy/pasted and didn't bother to edit in the upgrades that they don't want to reveal yet, or maybe it uses the same Sensor with just a simple DPi cap raise. Starting to wonder if they even did add a second sensor like Razer did with their 6.4K DPi 4G Mice or not.

- Old one isn't getting the same upgrades, least not that they've announced. Original will keep it's 5.6K DPI, black theme etc.
- The side buttons look the same, I'd say the only real upgrade is the DPi thing, rest is probably the same with a new coat of paint. Probably why they're selling it for the same price as the original RAT 7.
- Judging by gallery, mouse feet look the same as well, although might not be final product.
