To the MMO7 owners out there what mouse pad do you guys use and do you still have tracking issues with them?

I've noticed some random tracking problems with my current cloth pad and I'm wondering if there is some surface out there that could possibly cure the issue.

My DPI up button stopped working.... Then worked again while I was typing this post. wth.gif


EDIT: Now it works at random. Sometimes it would work fine, other times it wouldn't respond, or jumps up 2 steps with one click headscratch.gif

hi,

' had my rat 7 for a few months now. ' was my first non budget mouse, so i was basically blown away. people are always amazed when i show it to them (they're mostly hardware illiterate folk).

' applied friction material to the sides and to the DPI switch. two finger (thumb-finger) lift and DPI change much more positive now.

problems have been loss of axis (usually dirt/lint near eye), loss of connection (usually after long idle, unplug-replug usb connector solves).

it's not perfect by any means, but close enough for now. i've never been satisfied with my mouse surface (zero friction is my ideal) though. So i picked up a teflon cookie sheet at wally world (having read of good results elsewhere, and the price was right). house brand, ~ $5. it was good but not great. i polished it with a ceramic knife sharpening stone, and now it's great. smooth very low friction surface on the cheap. it will be cold come winter, but i need some padding/friction reduction for my carpal bone anyway, so gaming gloves are in my future.

mousing really is a joy now. not just gaming either. it's really amazing to me how much easier it is to point/click/drag in windows with a good mouse and near ideal surface.

Unhappy camper here...

The thumb "button 1" just broke on my relatively new MMO 7... First it was sticking and not clicking freely and then last night it popped off and I can't get the orange button back on to the mouse.

Oh geez... this sucks. I hope this is covered by the warranty. Sending in a ticket to wait and see.



I hope this is not gonna make me wish I had not bothered with this mouse... build quality on the buttons truly seem to be somewhat flimsy and not as solid as I was used to on my old Logitech G9 mouse. ( If logitech had ever made a G9 with more side buttons, I probably would have never switched mice....)

New proud owner here of the MMO 7.

So what are the benefits of joining this club?

Also, I couldn't locate any official product registration page. Does it even exist?

And do you guys know if the twin-eye laser problems have been fixed? I recall with the Rat 7 and 9 models, lifting the mouse created issues, but was only partially solved by using a white mouse pad. Later on, they added some kind of lid or cover over the twin-eye, which covered half of it, it seems, which would help with the issues. Not sure if this is implemented in the MMO 7 or not. I'll be doing a ton of lifting since I got this for FPS gaming mostly.

Question or RAT OSX users.

The DPI settings on OSX don't seem do do anything, the DPI button works as it should, ( changes DPI ) but the precision aim button does nothing.
( hackintosh )

Also, my palm rest thing slides around on its own, Basically it seems that the peg is slightly smaller than the hole, allowing it to wiggle a little bit. Thinking of putting some hot glue in the hole to keep it still.

Had the mouse for 6 months now, and aside from the palm rest, it seems to work fine ( XP has problems though ) and thats after using it at least 8 hours a day at work. Looking at the new Razer modular mouse, seems like a rat, but if its better built, i'm going to be all over it.

Hi. I'm glad there's a group for these mice, because I'm about to grab one.

I am looking at picking up either a Rat 7 or MMO 7 (not really interested in a Rat 9, wireless does nothing for me)

BACK STORY, feel free to ignore: I recently got my girlfriend a Rat 5 after her old mouse broke, and she and I both love the feel, I decided it's time to upgrade myself as well.

The actual question: I love the shape and feel of the standard rat, I wanted to know if any MMO 7 users ever found that the thumb buttons got in the way of holding the mouse comfortably.

Aside from that, what seems to be the general consensus on the better of the two?

Thanks so much for any and all responses! Even insults directed to my mother!

Hi all,

Just want to let you know that my replacement RAT9 arrived yesterday. I must admit that, with all the bad review of them customer support I've read before, I was sceptical. They are flawless !

They took two days to reply to my RMA request. My mouse took two days to get to their facility. They shipped it the same day and it arrived at my home on next day.

They didn't send me the same mouse, this one is like new!

Thank you Mad Catz smile.gif

@ServerIndread: The MMO 7 still has horrible tracking issues. I lose an axis pretty regularly and have to pick up the mouse and set it back down again to get it to keep tracking. I also occasionally lose both axis and the mouse will just jiggle a little on screen when moving the mouse around. Honestly I would advise you to look for a different mouse until they actually get this under control because what's the point of having a mouse that randomly stops being a mouse?

@Talfrey: The thumb button placement on the MMO 7 is pretty great. I didn't really have any issues using the mouse as I normally would. You will have to get used to only putting your thumb in one spot when you pick the mouse up but I got used to it in a matter of hours.
