I'm using the Cyborg V.5, which is also something of a dust magnet. Most of the dust doesn't actually affect tracking. Tracking is super-accurate, and it makes for almost effortless movement, but the surface contact between the two is so close that I can feel even the slightest speck of grit. Can make it feel like I'm mousing on sandpaper. More an annoyance than anything else.

That's not quite true, at least as far as power off is concerned (he was talking about charging when the PC is off).

When I shut off my PC, I can still charge my cellphone on my USB ports. However, I can't charge my RAT9 batteries. Also, as you may have noticed, an optical mouse can still have the red light on the bottom of the mouse even though the PC is shut off. Same thing goes for USB keyboards. If they have backlighting, the lighting may change if the PC is unplugged or the main power switch shut off, but if you just shut it off normally the keyboard will still remember it's settings the next time the PC is turned on. (Note, this may not be true of laptops).

So as to why the RAT9 batteries will not charge while the PC is off, he'll have to ask Saitek.

That's worth a try. If anyone tries it, let us know how it turns out. I know my previous ASUS mobo did not support power-off charging on either the internal or rear ports as I tried both on that board. However, on my newer Gigabyte board my keyboard remembers its settings when the PC is off and it's plugged into the rear USB ports. So, it must be getting power from those ports when the computer is off.

That's the pad I was using and I had to give it up. Both the RAT9 mice I've had would go wonky on that pad, no matter which side I used. I loved the tracking and smooth effortless movement on it. It's now being used on the Logitech G9 on my spare computer. What a waste.

Can anyone recommend me a small, hard mousepad? All the small mousepads are cloth made or surface stickers, and all the hard ones are too large. The clothed ones "jiggle" the RAT's cursor too much and surface stickers is a no because I'll be using it right over 2 sections of my desk. Used a Qck mini, and had mouse drift problems, and temporarily using an Xactmat, but its too large.

Yeah don't know why but I never took a desktop into consideration. As this is not the case with most laptops.

List updated.

Get a RAT 7 if you can afford the extra money. More customization than the RAT. Both are good choices though.

Picked up a R.A.T 5 at the weekend unexpectantly for £40 was going to give it to the Mrs as a replacement for the standard DELL one she uses but thought I would use it yesterday instead of my ROCCAT KONE to see what the fuss was about and I have to say it's a cracking mouse! It glides smoothly the buttons are easy to reach and it fits in the hand perfectly. So looks like I may be using it mself A few pictures for comparisons sake.
