post #2041 of 3831
Hey all, I think the rat series looks awesome and will be purchasing one tomorrow.

However first, I was hoping if one of you kind rat folk might be able to share some cheese. I can't decide between the rat 7/9 and the mmo 7. I'd prefer a rat 7/9 as it doesn't have the lock on buttons which i dont need or the 5d button (which I'm guessing is like an old sony ericsson mobile phone joystick, which I found annoying on my old phone and cant be any better on the side of a mouse) and you can adjust the thumb direction, plus it plain just looks better imho wink.gif But the mmo 7 simply has more buttons. Basically I will be using it for graphics, not games, and want to be able to have a mouse button shortcut for shift, ctrl and alt. But as you can't reconfigure the aim button and from what I can see there are only 2 other buttons but I need 3. I'll be using side scroll, mode button and also use the scroll/middle button. Is there another button I can use for the 3rd on the rat 7 or 9? Or do I just have to go for the mmo 7? I've searched the net for ages but the info is limited. 6 programmable buttons. fine I get that. but which ones are they, what ones count and what dont. Wish they'd just spell it out in plain english and list all the buttons lol. Any help much appreciated!

Hey all, hoping one of you kind rat folk can share some cheese. I'd prefer a rat 7 or 9 to an mmo 7. But aside from the mode button, aim button, scroll click and side scroll I'd like 3 more buttons to map shift, ctrl and alt to, without having to change modes. is this possible, I cant for the life of me find a list of the buttons. It says theres 6 buttons, but does this include things like the side scroll and mode button? Any feedback will recieve great karma biggrin.gif

I bought the first Mamba. I didn't like it at all and returned it.

As @Phelan mentioned, it felt too light and plasticy. I didn't like the charging cable that felt like the connector would break every time I tried to plug it in. Mice that use a cable to charge just don't get "wireless". The battery only lasted five hours, I spent just as much time corded charging the battery as I did cordless. The lights were about the only thing good about that mouse.

I picked the RAT 9 because it has a sweet design, it's heavy (and you can make it heavier with the included weights), it has two LiIon batteries that last eight hours and charge in three so you always have a fully charged battery to swap out. It's easy to swap the battery (at least I find it so), and it has the thumb wheel which I use for side scrolling. Of course the adjustability helped a lot too.

If you want a less costly alternative, then get the RAT 7. It has all the same features, but it's wired.

Both mice have four red LEDs on the side to tell you which DPI setting you're using, and they also have a small button to the left of the LMB that lights up red, blue or purple to tell you which shift level you're in.

Don't purchase an expensive mouse based on it lighting up. Note that I think there is a newer Mamba out that could be better than the first one, but if it still uses a cord for charging I would give it a pass myself.

You can reconfigure the precision aim - it was a driver update made a couple of months back both my old 5600dpi and new 6400dpi rat7's have it, you'd have the precision aim and the two thumb buttons (beneath the side scroll) to program on the 7 and 9 if I'm understanding correctly.

BTW.. on the MMO 7, you can now disable the action lock buttons so that's a non factor.


Personally, I like the 5 way button on the thumb... very useful and functional. It only has to be as annoying as you need it to be. If you don't want to use them, then just don't program them. That simple.

Hello community!

I made a new account just for this thread. I really want to purchase this mouse (Cyborg R.A.T 7) because it looks sick, but I've heard A LOT of bad things about this product and its customer service. I just want to know if these problems (sensitivity problems, cursor movement problem, buttons and LED lighting not working etc.) have been addressed and that this mouse is currently performing like a $100 product. I'll be reading up on the previous pages of this thread to see if my question has been answered.

Thanks in advance!
