Only thing OOTB i can say i don't like is its pretty light compared to the rat ( which i use all the weights ) an the LED's are green ( non changeable ) which does not match some of my other razer products ( nostromo gamepad ) which is blue LED's.
I'm going to try it out for a few days, and If i really like it, i'll buy the wireless version, as the battery will add weight, and that version you can pick the led colors, and wireless capability for only $20 more. ( and I can get a discount on it from my room mate )
( also might try out the logictech g600, basically the same as the naga, but being logitech, i'm sure the build quality is better, but no pinky rest almost a deal breaker. )

So true. One of the reasons I am buying a new one.

Who wants to buy my used R.A.T. 7?
post #2313 of 3822
yeah, I at least plan to keep it for 2 weeks ( 30 day return policy ) to fully try it out ( mix of gaming, work, media use, etc ) but with 12 buttons to program, i don't see how it won't work out.

Hopefully, its as easy to program as some other razer products, i found the rat software a bit clunky and basic compared to some razer software.

and the rat can take a beating, as everyday, it gets thrown into a backpack to take to and from work on my motorcycle, the naga does not feel like its as sturdy due to i'm sure a plastic chassis compared to the allum. rat frame

but turns out, I can basically make a sniper button with the naga, so thats a good thing.

I think the R.A.T 9 seems sturdy too. I have it. But I'm just having lots of problems with it, and I've even tried writing to them about my problems. I got answered once out of the 3 different problems I've had with this mouse. The recent one is that the battery is kinda wobbly inside the mouse, so whenever I lift the mouse off the mousepad and put it on the pad again (mostly in FPS games), the mouse just shuts off and turns on again immideately. This leaves me with two seconds of not being able to do anything at all, which is a lot of time in a game like Battlefield 3 or Starcraft 2. Because they didn't bother answering me, I just bought a Razer Imperator 4G today, waiting for it to arrive, because MadCatz apparently have a hard time helping me with my issues. I've been loving the feel of it, and even though it feels like a study mouse, it just hasn't actually been very sturdy for the time I've had it.

Man the S.T.R.I.K.E.7 looks so nice! I would love to have that go with my M.M.O.7! Anyone here got one yet? I just wish I had that kind of money to throw down. =[ Also are they getting rid of the Cyborg logo? I've noticed the S.T.R.I.K.E.7 has the Mad Catz logo and the new white M.M.O.7 has the Mad Catz logo.

Last time I tried a wireless Razer mouse (two years ago) was the Mamba, and the battery sucked. It didn't last as long as the RAT 9 battery, it didn't come with a spare, so you had to use it wired until it charged. That's OK if you don't mind a wired mouse, but I was paying premium for wireless, so I didn't want to use a wire half the time. Also, on that particular mouse, the cable attachment really sucked bad, and every time I used it I was afraid I would break it. I returned it after a couple of days.

Have you tried a Logitech G9x? It's pretty nice and comes with weights, and a couple of different covers. Also, the Corsair M90 is pretty good. They had a few software problems when it first came out, but they have all that sorted now. It has an aluminum chassis, and is about the same weight as the RAT is without any weights in it.

If you go back just two or three pages someone left a link to a review a buddy of his did.

yeah, i know not to expect a great battery life, but reasons i'm wanting the naga epic is that since it has the color change function, and different profiles, I can set each profile to a different color, that way i'm not guessing what pofile im in. and yes, I will probably end up using them all, I've aready maxed out a Razer nostromo with autocad commands, scripts, macros, etc. for work. I basically never have to touch the keyboard unless i'm writing an email. ( its great never having to take your hand off the mouse )

and the wireless version is not much more than the wired, so if i decide to keep it, i'll return the wired one and get the wireless.

( the main reason I want a wireless is for when i'm laying in bed watching netflix on my 2560x1600 monitor, and don't want to have to get up to turn the volume down/up or change a show.

Not to toot my own horn, but here's a review I did of the M90 a couple of weeks after it came out:

http://www.overclock.net/t/1220011/corsair-m90-mouse-review#post_16546500

I show it compared to a G9x. I let them have it over the software problems too (which are corrected now). I was an early adopter. Now it's one of my spare mice as I really like the design of my RAT 9.

i ended up swapping the naga for the g600, i'm now trying to decide if i like it better than the naga or not, its not as comfortable, but the software is great, but i can make the naga epic work like i want, so i'll probably end up wiht that.
