There must be a pairing software or procedure. I know that all of the Logitech wireless mice that I have owned have one in some shape or form.

Is anyone using the RAT 9 charge indicator program with SLI? Mine apparently messes up my cards and causes this problem

If it's the same problem on both sides; it may not be the pad. It may be the problem noted earlier with tracking errors that occur due to an off-centered glide pad around the laser aperture.

Finally got tired of my modded XTRAC Hammer killing my wrist. So, I ordered a steelseries Qck Mass mousepad. Hope it works well with the RAT's sensor.

Neither the G700 I tested nor my MX Revolution used any pairing procedure.

Hmmm. I checked the glide pad and it looks like all the pictures I've seen. It has that half opening I think they added for the RAT9 (filter?), and it's lined up with the "0" marking on the bottom. Is there any way to tell?

I did read a lot of the other posts in the thread, but I admit I didn't read all of them.

Edit: I just completed reading the entire thread. I feel I just have to say something in defense of the RAT 9. Everyone seems to have a hate-on for it.

1. There is zero lag associated with the wireless version RAT. I've used wired and wireless and I am seeing no lag issues at all. Considering how fast the polling is on mice like this I don't see where any lag would come from. However, to alleviate any concern I have tried it side by side with a Naga and there is NO LAG.

2: Battery issues. I was using an MX Revolution for about 4 or so years and it would go almost a week without needing to be recharged under moderate use. It still gets two days of heavy use and needs to be recharged sometime on the third day. With the RAT 9 I get about 7-8 hours of non stop gaming out of a battery before I have to swap it. The G700 gave me between 4 and 5, and the Mamba I returned gave just over 5. Both use a NmH battery, which is inferior to lithium. I wanted to try the MS Sidewinder X8 cordless, but I tried the RAT 9 after I returned the Mamba and was so happy with it I kept it. MS claims that the Sidewinder X8 gets 30 hours and some reviewers have said they had to charge "every other day" making it a fairly good choice. The RAT 9 is a much shorter use/recharge cycle but it also polls at up to 1000Hz (which is one of the reasons it has no lag) which uses a lot more battery power, however the X8 polls at a high rate as well so I don't know why they get a better battery life. Perhaps they are using a larger capacity battery. The RAT 9 battery is about half the weight or less of a regular NmH AA battery. As for swapping it literally takes me less than five seconds to change the battery. Again, literally, it's no effort or problem. It certainly takes less effort and concentration than plugging the charging wire into either the Mamba or the G700 (I hear the Sidewinder X8 is nice in this respect).

For 90% of "gamers" the RAT mice are a great choice. I disagree with those who complain about the ergonomics but I guess that is partially subjective. So much about mouse preference is subjective it's hard to recommend what you like to others. Not everyone agrees on what's best in a mouse.

Having said that, I like my RAT 9 because it's wireless, so perhaps I have a completely different perspective than many others have. I was specifically looking for a good wireless mouse, and this is what I picked (still with regrets over not trying an X8). Wired mice are great but I just got tired of the wire, and since competitive wireless were available....

it just may not be necessary when you first get your mouse.

Well there you go. I never replaced the receiver so I never had any pairing issues. This would seem to confirm the fellow with the new receiver should contact Cyborg and find out if he can match his RAT 9 with the new receiver.

Hey bud, + REP for bothering to look it up.

@Mergatroid nice long rant there lol. rat 9 is probably one of the best wireless mice that i have used along with mx revolution. my only gripe really is the battery that drains out within the day. but then again, a lot of wireless gaming mice are like that.

for their next rat, i hope they do include a cord option similar to razer mamba and sidewinder so people can choose to go wired or wireless. also, they need to design that battery placement a little better, darn hard to swap batteries without removing the palm rest. finally, they need to make it cheaper!

I've readjusted my grip with the RAT, but I'm still unhappy with blowing into the sensor so often, not sure if its the RAT or my megasome to blame, but I'll find out once I get my new mouse.
