Now that Steam allows "Trading" I am thinking of picking up a few games for the drawing. Not sure if I can buy in the US and transfer to another country though. I need to look into this unless someone else knows.

Well I buy games for my friend in Germany all the time and gift them to him (he hates the censored versions of games that they get over there), so it should be fine.

hello there! my name is frankietown and i joined this website just today ^_^

i am like at 80% at buying myself a rat 7 mouse and i had a few questions that hopefully some people may answer.

a) does anyone own a Steelseries Qck mousepad and how does the rat 7 work with it?

b) i have no problems with the z-axis problem that i have read about due to the fact i never pick up my mouse. however people are saying there is a drifting problem. is the drifting only happening due to the extra-mega sensitivity of the mouse and when it stands still it drifts? (from noises, speakers, etc) or does it also drift while you use it. if its the former, then that's not a big deal at all. but if it drifts as i use it then that may be a problem

c) quite a lot of people have mentioned a tracking problem that they have encountered. i understand that some people get bad luck, but after a lot of research it's starting to make me nervous that its like the xbox 360 and may have a high death ratio :\\

d) can someone explain to me dpi and the different uses for different games. some people suggest setting to max dpi then set sensitivity from the different applications, and some suggest set a dpi AND a sensitivity. what do you guys do for your games?


thank you for your time and have a good day. hopefully soon i may add myself to this list of owners!

Before we released our G.L.I.D.E.7 a fair few of our sponsored Pro gamers used the QCK with no problems.

Extreme vibrations will cause drifting. It doesn't normally drift when you use it.

Most tracking issues are caused by dust or fine hairs getting on/in the way of the lens. Give it a clean and it will then usually be fine.

It's very much personal preference to be honest!

I use a QCK Mass and other than the occasional dust or hair, it's perfect.

The bass from music in my office will cause the mouse to drift. But I don't notice it during game play.

I had minor issues with my "first batch" R.A.T. but I have had none with the one that replaced it.
