post #2761 of 3822
The left mouse (fire) button has died on my RAT 7.
Sounds like the micro switch has packed up.

Gotta start a hunt for another wireless gaming mouse.....

How long did your batteries last and is it worth it to pick up a couple new ones from mad catz?

On another note:

I just spent last night fighting with the "drifting pointer" problem again. I haven't had the issue for about 6 months, but last night, no matter how many times I cleaned the mouse (about 10 times), the pointer would continually drift. I used a q-tip with and without glass cleaner on it, I used air, and I also used a toothpick to try and get around the circumference of the sensor. Nothing I did would correct the issue. Finally I plugged in my Corsair M90 and used it for the rest of the night.

Today I plugged my Rat 9 back in again and so far it seems to be working fine. Go figure. It just kills me that a mouse with such a nice design and high cost suffers from this problem. Oh well, my batteries are not lasting as long as they used to either so I think I may be retiring this mouse soon.

I've contact Mad Cats and the told me "Unfortunately, Sir, we neither sell that part not offer it as spare. We only provide palm rests, adjustments tools, pinkie rests and batteries as spare parts."...
Know i think that i've to wait and find someone who have one breaked and sell parts of it....
Thks anyway

I thought I had it gone this time, but there it is. It's been working perfectly since turning it on again after unplugging the other mouse.
I would swear it was acting like it's dirty, but no piece of dirt could survive the cleaning I gave it. The pad is a Cyborg pad, and it's also clean. It's like it's haunted.

They used to last about 7ish hours. Now they last about 4ish under constant use. I've been using the mouse for about two years. It's been working well except for this one time. I just noticed a few weeks ago that I'm swapping the battery out more often. I'm changing it out every evening now whereas it used to be every second evening. At this rate I would think I still have a ways to go before the batteries start discharging faster than you can charge them. If it keeps working in the meantime, I might order a set of batteries and some new feet. It's a great mouse, it just seems a little glitchy once in a while.

At least it works without those parts. C'est la vie.

If you lift it up does it drift? Try it on a different surface, or perhaps on a different computer in another room. When ever I played a bassy song with my rat 7, it would drift all over the place. The low frequency seemed to vibrate it and screw with it. Even after the song stopped, it would drift exactly like you describe, down and too the right for at least a few minutes. Funky little mouse.

Two years is pretty good, what I expected and what I was looking for. My 9 is a couple weeks old, so it holds up to the 8hrs constant use, couple days of mild use. Do you have the 5600 or 6400 dpi version? I've looked lately out of curiosity and the batteries have not been available but who knows when that will change, I have yet to call to see when in the future they will be available.

I actually took it to work and used it there for a month, and it worked fine. When I brought it back home it also worked fine. I've been using it for about a year or so since then without much of an issue (just cleaning it once in a while), but last weekend it was back to the same old problem again. It's working perfectly again now.

My RAT 9 is the original. Actually, I'm pretty sure the batteries are available. I've seen them.

Here they are:

$20 for a set of batteries isn't too bad. Of course, they are out of stock. I hope that's not a lasting thing since I will have to consider replacing them soon. Next time I'm looking for a cordless mouse, I'll kick myself before even considering a mouse that uses custom batteries.

So i did some testing with the R.A.T 3 2nd Revision i had lying around for quite a while, and the tracking is very inconsistent, i noticed it while RGing in QL, while the shafting with it was excellent(probably due to weight/shape combo), i couldnt hit ***** with the rail, during testing my crosshair never landed on the same spot, even when when i move the mouse at the same speed the whole time, the change in cursor speed was also clearly visible.

Anyway would be good if someone else with a RAT3 3500 could do some testing, i just want to make sure if i have a faulty unit or saitek totally messed it up.

Well, it's been a while...

I've updated the list of owners. If you don't see your name, link to your post with pic or post a new one and let me know.

On another note...I've been R.A.T.L.E.S.S. wink.gif for a while now (been using a Logitech G300. Not thrilled with it and may switch to the Genius Gila) and I've kinda lost interest in this thread not being an owner any more. I think it has shown by the lack of updates, etc. by me. I apologize and don't want to see the thread suffer for my lack of interest. So, I'd like to hand over ownership to someone willing to take on the roll of OP. I know there are a few of you that I would consider regulars to this thread and do help out a lot. If anyone is interested in taking over, please PM me and I will look into handing over the reigns. I've never done this before. So, I'm not sure how to do it. If someone is interested I'll contact a forum MOD and see what can be done.

I think this is a great community we have started and I hope it continues. Who knows, maybe I'll rejoin one day. smile.gif

Why did you leave in the first place? Honestly, I've tried looking at other mice, but honestly none of them out there give me EVERYTHING I want, therefore I have to take the "lesser of all the evils" considering what I value most in a mouse.
