If I hadn't tossed out the box the new one came in it would be on its way back to Amazon for exchange.
I can absolutely say that I love this mouse, the amount of engineering that went in to it is great. Let me just list what I love about it:
1. Metal bottom, but slick feet make the mouse slide over most surfaces wonderfully.
2. Custom weight system for those of us that love a heavy mouse (it's good to feel the weight when you have it on high DPI).
3. As I just mentioned the DPI tops out at what most people would need, and the ability to switch and set your DPI settings is grand.
4. Customization in regards to the amount of buttons, and the feel of the buttons and scroll wheel. Just the perfect amount of mechanical precision for each click and turn.
So why is this mouse getting 1 Star from me? Just one reason, and one reason no one should ever buy this product or most any product from Mad Catz.
The laser eye proven to be utter garbage. I bought my RAT 9 to start when they first came out and loved it, but after a year I started to have problems with tracking. So I bought a RAT 7 while I attempted to get the RAT 9 working again. RAT 9 worked on and off and I had the RAT 7 in the off times. This went on for 7 months until the RAT 7 went through the same problems. I contacted Mad Catz support and they stated that I shouldn't be using a black mouse pad with the devices and advised me to buy a white pad because of the laser eye worked better with white (yea wtf). I did so and got another month out of both mice before the problems became to much.
I then filed for warranty on both devices, which was fulfilled after a week of emailing Mad Catz that I had tried everything. They sent me two new mice after they received the old ones and I continued gaming. Should be happily ever after... but here I am again with two mice that don't track and not even a year after receiving them. I can assure you that Mad Catz will only honor the original warranty from my first devices. So in other words I'm stuck with two RAT mice that don't track that are less than a year old.
Also I am not a dirty person... my pad is clean, cleaned at least once a week, I've taken compressed air and alcohol to the laser eyes, reinstalled software and tried everything. I game A LOT and I game hard, and I wanted this mouse to work so bad because of how it felt, but in the long run a weak laser eye ruined a perfectly good product.
TLDR: This is a wonderful paper weight, if you want a mouse with a laser eye that stops tracking very early into its life, and poor customer service who believe the problem is always the customer, then buy this mouse. If you want a mouse that works buy a Razer Diamondback, the one I've had since 2005 still works which is 5 times as long as either RAT mice I have owned.
In May 2013 (the mouse was about 1.5 years old) it quit tracking. From other posts here I assume the laser failed. Mad Catz was gracious and replaced/refurbished the mouse at no charge. My primary issue was the premium price paid and life of the mouse compared to a number of "cheap" mice I have used through the years that seem to last forever.
Now it is January 2016. The R.A.T. has once again quit tracking. Since the last repair/replace it has been about 2.5 years. I guess I have gotten my moneys worth but I still feel disappointed in the product. I like the weight, the feel, the look. Its built like a tank. The body of this mouse will probably last generations but it appears the electronics are good for about 2 years.
Right now I am trying to decide if I want to try and repair this one again or move on. If it had cost 10 bucks I would not feel bad at all about it failing after a year or so. I could buy a lot of $10 mice for what this one cost.
Overall I think I am being generous at 3 stars.
