Well, for somebody that really hates wires, and is willing to the additional $65 dollars (almost double the price) over the R.A.T. 7, it might not be that bad. However, it has no advantages other than being wireless.

If the other wireless mice I've owned are any indication, these LiIon batteries will last years. Would you not purchase a tablet (or anything else) because the batteries are eventually going to die? How about a cellphone? So I take it you'd rather have a wired phone because eventually your cellphone battery is going to die completely? You have to charge them every day too.
The advantage is the wireless. Obviously people interested in the RAT 9 want a wireless mouse. They (like me) are tired of the mouse moving if something hits the cord. The cord getting caught on things. The mouse falling off the desk if you pull your PC out. I LOVE wireless mice. The last one I had (Logitech MX Revolution) lasted about five years before I wore out the buttons. I replaced those buttons and took it to work. It's still running fine, and the battery which is also a LiIon is still working.
That's the funny thing about stuff in general, eventually just about all of it will stop working. What do you feel about the MMO? Because it's about the same price as the RAT 9.

I run corded and almost never have problems with the cord. And as for the batteries: I expect this mouse to last ten years. After 4 the batteries are worthless. I don't expect a tablet/laptop/ect to last 10 years.

So I caved in a bought a MMO mouse. Been playing with it all day and I love the macros I can assign to it. I was wondering though is there a way to add a pause between multiple commands assigned to one button?

I also had a slight concern, and I was wondering if this was part of the mouse or if mine might be defective. The vertical scroll wheel doesn't have a uniform amount of force to actually scroll through, it scrolls through easily through most of the wheel then it takes a lot more effort to rotate the wheel about a quarter. Is it made like this, or is it a defect?

Actually, the difference at my local computer store is $50. ($109 vs $159)

Yeah, you be sure to let us know when you're still using this mouse 10 years from now. You expect the buttons to last 10 years? Good luck with that. In the meantime, if my batteries do wear out, I'll purchase some more. Besides, as I mentioned, the battery on my five year old MX Revolution is still working. That's five years and counting on that battery, while the buttons already wore out once so I had to replace them. Looking around my desk, I basically have nothing that's 10 years old. I highly doubt you'll be using that RAT 10 years from now.

Wow, that really sucks. Hope they don't cause you any hassles. If I was you I would be on their case to pay shipping.

Yeah, that's a defect. My first RAT 9 had a thumb wheel that did the same thing. RMA time....

Yes, you can add a pause - the macro editor is really powerful stuff. When you're editing your macro just right click the key you want to set the delay on, click Set Delay and then enter the time you want to delay before it 'happens'. If you're using the Advanced Command option then you'll see the times for each key in the macro underneath them.

Oh thanks, thats good to know. I'm new to macros in general, since my keyboard doesn't really have them at all (ducky shine). I'll have to wait until amazon sends me a replacement though, since I have to send this one back because of the scroll wheel. mad.gif

Ive got a 15 year old Gateway mouse that still works. Just clean the wheels the ball rolls on every now and then. I doubt you'll have to worry about the buttons ever breaking. Unless you're a ............BUTTON MASHER!!!!!!devil.gif
