$106.99? Nice! I'll buy one as soon as I see one in my area.

nah best gaming mouse is one that fits my big hands, and I can use it very well and slides across my desk.

This mouse look like a saitek cyborg mouse with a different design.

Is this true? I don't know much on sensors

lack the interchangeable palm and pinky surfaces.
Also, lack of adjustable thumb surface if this is to be believed.

Split on the 5 and 7 right now. If I go 5, I can probably sell me MX revolution for most of the cost of a 5.

Also, where is the Rat 5 shipping? I can't find it online anywhere.

The mouse looks sick, but $100 sick? Not sure, I'll look for the reviews coming from OCN when it hits the market.

Best gaming mouse ever is the cheapest mouse you can find that:

1. Doesn't skip on whatever surface you plan to use it on
2. Glides smoothly/with little resistance on whatever surface you plan to use it on
3. Has DPI / sensitivity that goes as high as you plan to set it
4. Has DPI / sensitivity adjustments on the mouse that are easily used on-the-fly (if needed for whatever you're playing... like if you pick up a scout in CSS you might want to switch really quickly for a shot)
5. Doesn't cost a lot
6. Is a weight that allows you to move it and maintain the best control (this is where adjustable weight mice help... you can experiment with the different weight and see what gives you the best results)
7. Doesn't continue tracking at all / very much if you lift to move it often or if you lift to move in situations that could be game changing or result in death
8. Fits your hands with the most comfort
9. Has two - three side buttons accessible with thumb
10. Has a wheel with good resistance for switching weapons/items/whatever you have it set to 11. Tilt/click wheel if you use either, both are pretty awkward for gaming IMO

One thing you might notice is that, basically, every one of these is subjective or optional, other than #1 and #7 (these things could be measured). If you're spending $100 on a mouse to try to get something you're going to notice a difference in over a $40-$50 mouse, you might be interested in these high quality 6' HDMI cables I have...

No, the R.A.T. 9 will have a proper setup of two batteries. While you are gaming and draining one battery the other one is charging on the dock ready to be swapped in. This means it is actually a 100% wireless mouse. The mamba is a flawed design because eventually you will need to plug it in and have a very expensive wired mouse or leave your PC on all night to charge it while limiting your PC time.

Also, what makes you think the R.A.T. 5 will have the best sensor?

Well, it's adjustable in all dimensions so it should fit you how you like.

that's where you're wrong.

HDMI cables have no differences.
Mice on the other hand always will.
You can argue about the DPI stuff that no one will end up using, but different things like extra buttons and mice grip customizations will always be worth the extra money for people. I know I might get this mouse. To be able to make all these changes is very well worth the money.

The adjustable weight stuff for example, I cannot live without anymore. I need those weights. I love having my mouse being hefty but not enough to hinder my movement. It gives the mouse depth. Sometimes you can't get that in a $40 mouse, and that's a difference I will ALWAYS notice. And I'm sure there are other people like me as well, including most of this thread who is preordering this mouse.
