Hello all. I have owned a RAT 9 since just before last Christmas. I love it myself. I'm using a black aluminum Cyborg mouse pad. The funny thing is, it has a red pattern on it. The mouse works great on the black areas, but sometimes stutters on the red. Strange.
I love this mouse to pieces. People who whine about wireless not being good for gaming...pshaw. I have nothing nice to say about them. I've been using wireless mice for about 6 years now, and never had a single issue. Previously I was using an MX Revolution, and it was awesome. I wore the buttons out and, oddly enough, just replaced them today and am using it at work now. Great mouse.
I LOVE the battery setup for this mouse. I tried the Logitech G700 and the Mamba, and they are a joke. The batteries last less time than the RAT9 which requires them to be plugged in to charge. What's the point of purchasing a wireless mouse if you have to use a recharging cord 50% of the time you use it? I payed extra for wireless, not 50% wireless. The plug on the Mamba is a real joke. Every time I tried it it felt like it might break. Junk. At least the Logitech used a standard NiMh battery so you could have spares. The Mamba used a custom battery and it is not a simple swap even if you had a spare kicking around. The RAT 9 battery not only lasts longer, but is a quick swap and you're back in action. I'm at work right now, so I will post a pic when I get home.
Hey, if anyone is interested, I programmed the side scroll wheel to be the arrow keys. It seems to work pretty good for web pages and such. You can change the sensitivity by programming additional arrow key presses.
