I have an Albino and its great. Only issue I have is the paint job. It stains easy. I had to finally put clear tape on mine to avoid the issue altogether. But they did release a new one and I heard it's the same but with a new paint job which I think corrects the staining issue. I would get that mouse if you dont mind the white color.

Alright, I picked up one of these mice (the R.A.T 9) at Fry's the other day. I'd always wanted to try it out so I bought it as soon as I could talk myself into it. I brought it home and got it all set up. All in all it was a nifty mouse but every time I had to lift the mouse it would take a second or so to respond again. While I didn't think much of it, as soon as I tried to play some games it was horrible. I returned it a few days later.

Was it the R.A.T. 9 being wireless or is this a problem with the R.A.T. 7 as well?

I also didn't like that I couldn't remap a few of the buttons (DPI and Mode switches) so I'm back with my G500 for a bit longer.

Got a RAT 7, love the precision aim button (makes sniping ridiculously easy in FPS games).

However, I do have one slight problem, the side scrolling thumb wheel (near the back/forward buttons) doesn't work for web browsing or anything.. did I get a lemon? Or do I have to configure it somehow?

I want to say I've heard of people having this issue with the R.A.T 7 also, but I have the R.A.T 7 and don't experience it. I think only some of the mice have the problem or they updated the mouse and you got an old version some how.

You have to configure the thumb wheel.

My 7 doesn't do this nor has it ever.

Remapping all the buttons would be a godsend.

P.S. For all those looking for an ideal mouse pad for the Rat:
I tried like 6 gaming pads so far, including func f10, razer goliathus, a few steelseries ones, and by far the best one was:
Razer sphex. Also the cheapest.
So... there you go
If Defiler pays for my plane ticket, I'd be happy to hand deliver any prize you may win.

Thanks for info on pads. I'm using the one that was included with my Albino pre-order and I REALLY like it.

So far, knock on wood, I haven't had any issues with my RAT 7 Albino so far. Very happy on how smooth it works.

I would like to be able to re-map all keys though.

I´ve got 4 different mice drivers installed, it seems the engineering has been properly done as the software recognizes and only affects its own mouse. These drivers benig Logitech, Razer, Ttesports and A4tech X7 Oscar. I wouldn´t recommend autostarting with windows all of them as it will slow down your pc.

Is that true, do second generation R.A.T. owners experience reduced or none Z-axis tracking at all ? If that filter works I´m sure some will start modding their own mice to eliminate this issue.

I've had next to zero issues with my RMA'd R.A.T. Take it for what it's worth.
