Good review. But I'm going to give it a huge no-no for the fingerprint plastic rear end. To me it always looks tacky, feels slippery and after use also looks disgusting.

Attractive, but not to the extent of http://www.cyborggaming.com/prod/rat9.htm

My MX510 still rocks. So does the MX518 at work.
No need for fancy 11-button mice.

I still just prefer a Deathadder, personally.

Looks a bit too much button overkill for me - i've used a Logitech G9 for a while now and i love the size/shape and weight of it.

I'll probably pick this up after the numerous issues with my Deathadder, thanks.

Sounds like a nice alternative to some of the macro-heavy gaming mice that have come out over the last couple of years, especially considering its price. Not sure if I'm in the market for a new mouse yet (my G5 is going strong even after a few years now), but this would definitely go on my "to investigate" list.

Good to see someone else still using a G5, mines getting a little tired now though but I still love it.

G5 is the only wireless mouse worth considering IMHO. Used my last one to destruction.

Ooh, Bit-Tech working on a Sunday? Hadn't noticed that before...

The G5 isn't a wireless mouse. The G7 is the wireless version of the G5

Why not review the RAT 7, RAT 5, etc... nobody has done a solid review on those and they are looking pretty good

rat looks good but this is probably better

I'm not sure why we've not looked at the RAT 5 or 7 yet.

I saw one in the flesh for the first time at i40 on Friday and spoke to the chap using it about what he thought of it.

I've got it admit its piqued my interest, I'll give Clive a poke on Tuesday and see if we can bag a review sample.

I've always wanted a RAT, but by the looks of it I'd be stuck with my Death Adder 1st Gen...

I was very interested in the RAT series of mice there are a lot of suspiciously similar reviews (same phrases used and the likes) giving blanket praise of them, but the user comments after the reviews paint a different picture of tracking issues when you pick up the mouse to move it on the mouse matt you get fraction of seconds delay. Ars gave it a good review but I ended up playing safe and getting the X8 sidewinder for £40 from Amazon

Both of the below sites I don’t normally visit so cant vouch for their integrity when reviewing unlike Bit-tech and Ars

I bought the RAT and have to say that I am very disappointed. I play FPS games and lift and drop quite alot. Everytime I put the mouse back down it right clicks... without me touching any keys Major bummer :( and design flaw. I might give this mouse a try and see if it lives up to the reviews.

For 45 bucks, I think you can't go wrong. I bought one of them this morning, and I'm not desapointed at all.....In fact I'm suprised. You can disable the fingerprint and the front LED (Hopefully). Its not slippery, itsnt feel sheap, and the more important for me It HUNT the frag like a Jag

I don't use more than 3 buttons on my mouse anyway so this is kinda pointless for me.
Not as pointless as the Razer Naga though:

Oh, and SwordsMan... there is an edit button. Please use it. :p
