razer ouroboros or RAT 9

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi! I am wondering what is the better mouse out of the razer ouroboros and the RAT 9 in comfort, surface, customisation, reliability and looks.
Thanks! thumb.gif

I would stay away from the rat I've got one and its rubbish. Sometimes the sensor doesn't track properly, I'm lucky if I get 6 hours of light use from a charge ( lucky its hotswappable ), sometimes it just stops responding and the worst part its made by Madcatz.

my friend has a rat7 and assuming that the rat9 is akin to a wireless rat7, i think it's a pretty solid and reliable mouse, and comfortable if you take the time to adjust it to fit your hand. it's a little heavy even in wired form. can't imagine how heavy ti is in wireless form. now if you are picky about prediction and stuff, i have no clue about the rat on that front besides that it's laser and thus has a little hardware accel. tracks well on a SS Qck.


from what i've heard about the ouroboros, it's adjustable, though apparently, once adjusted might jab into/poke your ring/pinky finger and be rather uncomfortable if you use a palm-ish grip. no knowledge of tracking or performance besides what's advertised. probably has accel as it's a laser sensor though. fairly good build quality for a razer product.

You should beware of the Razer one as I was considering that as my top choice but after reading of issues with dpi switching and wireless consistency I have removed it altogether as a choice. Just can't take a chance same issues will happen. People who had issues exchanged thinking it was a bad mouse but 2nd and 3rd exchanges had same thing happen.

Update: I ended up going with G700s as thats all they had so I will let you know how that one works...50% of the time I used the couch cushion next to me as a mouse pad because I alternate between my ROG laptop and my TV that I play on so I use a variety of surfaces as a mouse pad.
