Yes, it pains me to review this mouse, because what Mad Catz got right, they REALLY got right.
C. Owen
There are less buttons but it make up for that with the adjustable size and thumb rest; which is very comfortable for hours of use.
Mickey Valentine
If they made the battery last 3 days on a single full charge, I would have kept this product and given it 5 stars.

Color Name: Matte Black Verified Purchase
While a being a geek at 50 with big and busted up hand, I needed a mouse that was comfortable, adjustable as well as programmable. In these areas, this mouse meets my expectations.

You can buy any part for the mouse, However... The bad new is, You cant purchase the damn batteries!
This mouse loves batteries and is the only small drawback of the actual product.

The big downfall is the companies shortsightedness of allowing consumers who paid a large amount of money for their product the option to purchase extra batteries!

If the batteries go bad and they will over time, They are forcing you spend all that hard earned cash to buy the complete mouse, Just to get the damn batteries!!

To the people who decided not to make the batteries available for purchase, I hope you are reading this and all the others people's reviews who are complaining about the same problem and make the batteries available for purchase.

Would I recommend this mouse to anyone.... SADLY NO! Not until extra batteries are made available.

This is a 5 star product but I'm only giving it 2 stars due to the inability to purchase spare batteries.

===========================================================================================
UPDATE!!!! 4/26/13

After submitting a support ticket at the manufactures website MADCATZ, I quickly received a reply assuring me that they DO SELL SPARE BATTERIES!

They asked me to post the manufactures website where they are sold.
[...]

If Amazon removes the link for any reason, GOOGLE, GAMESHARK R.A.T.9 Batterie SKU: RAT9BATTS/1120/1

Make sure that the URL is STORE.GAMESHARK DOT COM. There are unrelated websites that are selling these for $45.

The Good

- Works with both Mac OSX (Mountain Lion) and Windows 8 so no worries about it being compatible with the latest Operating systems.
- This is the updated version of this mouse (late 2012) It now has 6400 DPI Sensor.
- Build Quality is Excellent, this is clearly a top of the line mouse you will not be disappointed.
- Includes 2 lithium Ion rechargeable batteries. They are easy to swap out, and your spare will always be charged by the time your current battery gets low.
- As many Profiles as you want, each profile has 3 Modes, so 18 programmable buttons per profile.
- You may want to create different profiles for different users, different kinds of tasks or even for a specific game.
- Program any button on your keyboard to any mouse button. I find it's really handy to use the side scroll wheel for volume up and down.
- The mode button changes color to let you know what mode your in. Red-Blue-Purple.
- Adjust Sensitivity (DPI) right on the mouse. There's a red light bar so you can tell what your set at.
- Scroll wheel feels great and has scroll wheel click that feels firm and high quality.
- Totally customizable. enough said. I'll include a picture of how I like mine set up.
- Great for gaming I've used it for Far Cry 3 so far and I've filled up all 3 modes.
- You can create as many profiles as you want so don't worry about running out of options.
- You can set any profile as the start up profile in both OS X and Windows. It will auto load your profile so you don't have to do anything.

My Criticisms

- Wireless receiver/ charge station needs to be plugged in for mouse to work, so keep in mind this isn't the best travel mouse.

Color Name: Matte Black Verified Purchase
Copied from my review at [...] -> I stand by everything I said there but thought I should post it here because I don't see a RAT 9 review.

Overview

For those of you unaware, the R.A.T. 9 is a 5600dpi wireless laser gaming mouse. It features an aluminum chassis and an impressive set of customizable features, including a movable palm rest, thumb rest, and a replaceable pinkie rest. It has 5 programmable buttons, a programmable thumb scroll and a precision aim button which can increase mouse sensitivity on the fly. Tack on the 4 dpi settings and 3 custom modes, as well as the weight kit and you have one impressive gaming mouse - on paper. But what's it really like?
Look and Feel
The R.A.T. 9 looks simply amazing. It's quite clear a lot of effort went into creating a true gamer's mouse. The body is coated in soft touch black paint (a feature which even finds its way into every unnoticeable crevice) which seems to contrast it's robotic design aesthetic. The build consisting of an aluminum chassis and quality plastic makes it feel incredibly solid while the PTFE feet help it glide smoothly over my SteelSeries 9HD pad. It's not a light mouse by any means, but if you like some weight beneath your hand, this is the mouse for you.

With all of the slideable and moveable parts, a common concern is how the mouse feels when they are all extended. If the palm rest is all the way back and the thumb rest is pushed all the way out, it seems like it would start to wobble and creak. However, even in this position, everything feels snug and secure. Despite the precision aim button being in a prime place to push the thumb rest back in with every use, my setting has stayed in place.
