I installed new RAM (Dominator Platinum), but that's all I've done recently. My HDD is on its way out so I'll see if the mouse concern disappears after I swap drives and reinstall Win7.

Quick question to albino RAT 7 owners, I'm thinking about getting an Albino to replace my broken, outdated black RAT 7 and I'm wondering if it turns yellowish after a while. White seems like a dangerous color to go for with something I'll be touching every day.

Wish I'd found this before I placed my order.

I just ordered a Rat7 Albino, I'd heard a lot of mixed reviews and was unsure. I'm currently using a TT Esports Black (not the element) and I found it uses a PTE sensor, same as the rat, but an older model. I've had zero issues with it on my current mouse pad, does anyone know if I can expect similar results with the newer model, or is it going to be significantly different?

A quick search reveals the TTE with a Twin-Eye PLN 2301 and the RAT with Phillips Twin-Eye PLN 230x

In fact I have nothing but good things to say about this mouse's tracking, its ergos however are terrible which is why I'm looking at the RAT. The 'drag to the lower right' when lifting is there, but barely at all, I have to MAKE it happen.

I found the new one to track better than the old one on the pads I have. It still doesn't track on everything though.

Good to know. I've only tried it on two mousepads, when I ordered these mouse my old one was peeling, so I dropped an order on a custom-printed one from one of those sites that will do personalized designs and it works. Due to the fact it's personalized I would hate to have to replace it, but if i have to, it's fine. I also have some cheap-o pad that's a big advertisement for some product or website that it tracks fine on as a backup.

Hopefully I'll get the same results with my RAT

Received my Albino yesterday. I really like the ergos on it. Had no issues with it for about first 12 hours, just had a spasm. Tracking went caput and had serious jumping on lift. Unplugged it so I could look in the optics, didn't see anything, blew it out with air, replugged it an it worked fine, so I'm not sure if it was the unplugging or the air that fixed it.

I'm not a big fan of the optics well, it has a little flap which I'm assuming is a blind intended to help with lift-off tracking, but it makes an area for small hair and dust to accumulate and makes it harder to see inside to see if somethings there.

Only other issue is the cursor moving from vibrations when I type.

I have a few weeks to return it if it ends up being a frequent issue and I'll get a refund and pick up the G9x. It would be a shame though I really like it when it works.

Agree 100%. This is the same type of aperture they use on all the newish RATs, and I also agree that the RATs (at least the RAT 9 for me) are particularly susceptible to dirty sensors and dust issues, more so than other mice are. I keep a q-tip on my desk all the time now, and stick it in and give it a twirl whenever there seems to be a problem. As for the movement while typing, try a different mouse pad. Some people in this thread corrected that fault by replacing it.

My RMA MMO7 is on its return trip home WOOT biggrin.gif:D:D:D . I never thought about my old mouse as being that bad but having had to use it the last little while I cant stand how poorly it does gaming...or everything else. How the heck did I put up with that for so long IDK lol. I will take some better snaps this time, too excited the first time around and mucked it up with greasy fingerprints and dust.



Wow, that was quick. I called them and they said up to two weeks but a few days later here it is. Thanks MadCatz, great stuff thumb.gif

SO a few things to note, packaging is different this time around. The last MMO7 was packaged in the box were are all used to seeing but this one has completely new packaging. Its much smaller in size. Like opening a watch or ring box.. kind of. The mouse can be touched without having to remove any plastic and there is no lid for the box containing the extra parts. Ive not gone further than just flipping the lid open and lifting the mouse away to see under it. The lid may be there but I don't want to dig that far down with filthy fingers and a photo shoot to do yet so ill report back with some more info and PICS

** looking farther into the box I now notice that there is indeed no lid.... or box for the extra parts and they also have decided to remove the tube used for storing the extra weights. I know its not a big thing but I like that accessory box on my desk but now without a lid and just some Styrofoam to press the parts into its open to dust collecting and looks like crap and incomplete. The removal of the weights holder seems very odd. Without any lid for the box and no place to put the extra weights what are we to do, have them rolling around and getting lost on the desktop.

I am happy to have my mouse back biggrin.gif , albeit not the mouse package I had purchased the first time around but a stripped down version mad.gif . The packaging is indeed nice its just a shame that they removed parts and overall it seems a lesser product to the one id purchased. Its not the end of the world I know, im just a bit shocked right now.

That's unfortunate. Not only do you get a MMO7 that has to be RMAd, but the one you get back isn't quite as nice in a peripheral sort of way. I don't mind losing a bit of packaging, but the box really does need a lid. That's something nice about the RAT 9. It has a little cylindrical weight holder that stores in the receiver. Of course, it still needs a box for the rest of the parts.
