Anyone ever tried the R.A.T. M ?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Just found it yesterday and it seems small and capable if pricey. Did anyone ever try this thing? I've had my fair share of bad luck with the R.A.T. 9 because of sensor problems (that also plagued the Mambas I've owned)

UPS dropped the little critter off this morning.
Build quality is pretty good considering it weighs about 112g (with 2x AAA batteries inserted). Response time seems also OK and the feet work rather well with my PureTrak Talent pad. Also the size is pretty good, about the same of the pyra, so pretty tiny. The right side is a little too smooth for my fingers to grip so i've had to put some sticky rubber there to solve that issue.

The thing that's putting me off though is some subtle stuttering. It wasn't too obvious is World of Tanks but when I fired up minecraft I noticed that this was what was feeling odd. Whenever I turn smoothly there is some more or less sutble amount of stuttering going on. When I use my Pyra (also wireless) to do the same the motion, it's way smoother.
I've experimented with it for a while and couldn't get any solution so I'll pack it up again tomorrow and return it. sadsmiley.gif

what do you expect from a wireless mouse with some shady lasor sensor?
post #5 of 5
Thread Starter 
put simply, that it works as well, if not better, than a wireless mouse with a shady optical sensor that only comes at 1/4 the price. No clue if this can be attributed to the FailEye™ sensor or rather the BT connection this one uses. If you want a hunch, I'd blame the BT connection.

Seriously though, the Pyra is working perfectly fine in that department, it's just getting a little unstable lately. Sometimes it has randomly switched the buttons from left to right and one time it dropped out completely on me in the middle of a fight.
