This is starting to become more common, and it's honestly really annoying. I updated my drivers as well. Does anyone know why this happens?
Blow into the laser lens and make sure you're keeping your mat clean - see if that prevents it.

I've been blowing out the lens fairly frequently since this happened. I'm just using my desktop, but it has been working perfectly fine until recently. Hopefully this will stop happening.

Honestly ... Is the RAT all it's cracked up to be? for First Person Shooters?

I,ve been thinking about the RAT7

So far, I'm loving my Rat (despite the occasional errors, which have ceased, by the way).
By the way, for the prize-winners, it will probably take a little while to arrive. Mine took from around August 10th to Sep 10th or so? I honestly can't quire recall.
Regardless, it's well worth the wait--particularly if it's a prize!

I just order a R.A.T 9 to try out. Right now I have a Razer Mamba, And it's been fine other then being alittle to small for my hand. But now the left click button is giving out after a year and a half. So I will send it in, But I really want to find something that fits my hand better. So im hoping this will work out better

So is there anything I should look out for when I get it?

I disabled the acceleration in Windows using the registry fix but it didn't help at all. All it did is show me how much I like having acceleration on.

@Zalgroth

I had the same problem with my RAT9 (loss of an axis intermittently). I had to RMA it.
The Razer Sphex is the fastest-smoothest mousepad I've tried. It tracks perfectly and it's very comfortable to me cause of it thinness (i hate those elevated edges). I'd try it if I were you.

Your prize is up to Mad Catz Rich to ship to you. I gave him all the info a couple of weeks ago. I'm sure he's busy like all of us and will get it out as soon as he is able to.

As for the rest of the people that have not gotten their prizes (the ones I needed to mail out) I just got back from the post office. So, you should get them this week. I'm not sure on the ones being mailed to Canada (I never knew we had so many members from way up north ). I sent your prizes first class today. So, I'm not sure when they will arrive but they have been sent.

All the other prizes that were sent via email, have been claimed and received by those who won them.

This give away was a little more than what I bargained for. I'll have to rethink how to handle the next one, if I even consider it.

When I have a good mouse with a button wearing out, I purchase a $10 mouse and use one of the switches to repair my good mouse. I just did this with a MX Revolution I use at my work, and I've done it on several other mice. It's a lot less expensive than sending it off to get repaired. There is a small chance the switches will not be the same, but even if you purchase 4 different $10 mice, one is bound to have the right switches and $40 is still less expensive than sending it off for repair. (note, you'll need a soldering iron).

I don't know if it would be worth it. How much does that pad cost? I've already purchased a $25 pad that didn't work out. Other people doing reviews on the RAT mice have stated that their expensive $50 Razer pads caused problems for this mouse (These pads just kill me, $40 or $50 for 75 cents worth of plastic. They're making a killing on these things). On top of this, other people with RAT mice say they have no problem with the Saitek Cyborg pad I bought, but it's caused problems on two RAT 9 mice I've had. There is some variable we're not seeing here that is affecting some people and not others. I'm not willing to keep purchasing expensive mouse pads in the hops of finding one that works better. In the mean time, the $1.50 pad I bought is tracking perfectly. I've been using it for three or four days without a single glitch. I don't understand why this mouse hates the Cyborg pad so much considering they're both made by the same company.

It's still under warranty so why mess with it, And shipping won't cost more then $8-10. If my warranty was gone I would open it up, But like I said I need to find a mouse that fits my hand alittle better. After playing BF3 for an 1/2 hour it starts to hurt my hand, I guess that's a good reason to get up and stop playing for a bit

The price of a new mouse is not going to kill my bank account, So why not try something new
