post #1851 of 3823
Had a rat 7 since about christmas, amazing mouse so heavy. probably my favourite mouse I have ever owned. Was a nice change from my razer naga tho I still use that when Im on mmos =p
But all of a sudden I am having terrible tracking issues the mouse will move on its own etc. Looking around I think its a common problem with the twin eye lazer thingy, and apparntly I would be better off with a hard mouse mat instead of the cloth one I have.
Can anyone reccomend me a good hard mouse mat?

Well after being undecided whether to get a Cyborg or Razer Abyssus, i finally decided to take the plunge and reserve a RAT 3 from my local PC World store for £30 (cheapest around). When I got to the counter they gave me a battered and opened box and said it was the ex-display (and last stock they had of this model).

After a bit of debate whether to still buy it or not, considering it was still £10 cheaper then other local stores, I looked at the mouse and noticed it had R.A.T 7 written on it and not 3 (which i remember them selling for £80 in store)...so i decided to quickly buy it and leave.....

So it looked like one of their 'knowledgeable' staff took a display model of a RAT 7 and placed it in a RAT 3 box, yes it was missing the little tool from the back of the mouse (although I can buy for £2) and some of the extra swapable stuff but still worth it for £30.

It has taken me a couple of hours to get used to the feel of the mouse but I love it!

I use blue painters tape, its seriously the best "free" mousepad you can do, just put strips of tape on your desk and line up the sides.

The wax covering that keeps paint from seeping through the tape allows any mouse to easily glide over it, and is still textured enough to allow fine precision tracking. i've owned several gaming mats, and cheap-o's, and this is the best thing i've used. Don't have to worry about it sliding around your desk, and you can make it whatever size you want.

Lol, why spend so much money on a decent mouse and chince trying to get "free" mousepads?

@Projector

Try cleaning out the laser with a Q-Tip. I use one with Windex on it, clean the laser and then dry it with the other end. You can also use compressed air. I was using a cloth pad for a while and it seemed to work fine until other issues started showing up.

Another thing I found sometimes worked is just turning the mouse on and off a few times. Supposedly it looks for a channel with the least traffic on it, so it may pick out a frequency that has less interference.
