This is the Cyborg R.A.T.7 from MadCatz. We’d seen early pictures of the mouse, and we had our doubts—to say it looked “gimmicky†is a bit of an understatement. Well, we’re very pleased to have been proven wrong.
Ya, I read the article. It's from madkatz and I generally don't give a damn what they think of the mouse. I've seen/used crap from madkatz since N64 up till x360 and all they do is just that...make crap.

This is pretty much made by Saitek. Who are now owned by Mad Catz.

So far Saitek has been able to keep up their standards and even release new products since the purchase by Madcatz, this is actually the first obviously Saitek product to be released with the madcatz name (cyborg is a Saitek thing, maybe all Saitek stuff will be called cyborg under the Madcatz name). I don't have any worries about the quality (build wise) of this mouse.

They've stepped up their game since the release of products like this.





Madcatz actually makes some pretty high end stuff now.

Hey you guys actually will probably want the R.A.T. 5 since it will have the best sensor of the three.

The R.A.T.7 is part of a new line of gaming mice from MadCatz’ Cyborg brand. There will be 4 models total, the R.A.T.3, R.A.T.5, R.A.T.7, and R.A.T.9. At $50, the R.A.T.3 has a lesser 3200 DPI laser sensor, and lacks most of the features and customization that we like about the 7. The R.A.T.5 has a better sensor than the three, as well as the sniper button and thumbwheel, but lack the interchangeable palm and pinky surfaces. The R.A.T.9 will essentially be the same as the R.A.T.7, but will be wireless. Currently, only the R.A.T.5 and the R.A.T.7 are shipping, with the R.A.T.3 and the R.A.T.9 planned for later this summer.

The RAT9 should have the same idea as the razer Mamba where it is wireless but can also be wired for longer gaming sessions. I just bought the Mamba and this just came out
