^ For me, it definitely feels a lot better than the G9x which was also designed with claw-grip users in mind (I used to own a G9x also) so yes.

How to test Accelration:
Go ingame.
shot a hole to use as a starting point and swiped the exact length of each mouse pad slow and then fast.
If the mouse does not have any accel - The total movement need to be close to a perfect 180.
Here for example: *The credit goes to derp
xaipositiveaccel.png[/QUOTE]
You can clearly see the positive acceleration from the screen shot. If the sensor had no positive or negative acceleration then the slow and fast swipe would land in the same cluster.


Jitter can be easily testing by attempting to drawing a straight line on mspaint, if you see kinda "zig-zag" movement - thats mean that the sensor peresent jitter.
(if you use win7 so just use a Pencil-tool for seeing the result better and noticeable, if any..)

Z-axis:
Just lift the mouse up and put it back..if the cursor/crosshair are move down and right by something like 1inch so the sensor present the Z-axis issue.

thanks, I am actually in the middle of acquiring a g9x because I am going to give claw grip a try (wrist and elbow problems). I had considered the RAT, but they seemed to have overwhelming reliability issues, and it is hard to beat Logitech Customer Service... despite the fact their products rarely fail. (in my experience)

You're welcome and my experience with MadCatz support has been quite positive. They reponded to my email quickly and was going to RMA the first R.A.T. for me but I cleaned the sensor and the problem went away.

I just had so many bad experiences with MadCatz back in the day with original Xbox controllers and the trigger buttons dropping like flies. glad to hear things are on the upswing.

happen to know what the warrantee is for the RAT 7? I dont see it on their site. how is the build quality?

It feels pretty solid perhaps due to its weight (on the heavy side) and here's the info on their warranty:

Limited warranty 3 months for parts and 3 months for labor.
