- The thumb shelf changes the game. I had no idea how much drag my thumb would provide and how it interfered with the smooth control of my games. The thumb shelf on the R.A.T. 7 is the perfect size to hold my fat thumb and keep it out of the way.
Continuing on - this will be the first mouse to replace my almost-perfect Logitech from 1999. The Logitech was heavy, had a nice, tactile wheel, moved very smoothly and had a responsive, easy-to-clean mouseball. Yeah, no optics for me.
The R.A.T. 7 starts light and is adjustable up to HEAVY. The solid chunk of stamped aluminum that acts as the frame peeks out from all the adjustable nooks and crannies and holds all the assemblies tightly. The feet glide smoother than any other mouse I've used. The adjustable palm rest is perfect, even if you like a shorter grip. The pinkie shelf was a nice addition, too, until I found that it interfered with play. No problem - I can use the stock pinkie assembly, but I took the whole thing off for an even better configuration taht fits my grip.
The DPI is suffficient for noticeably smoother control, and the on-the-fly DPI adjustment button at the thumb is an innovation I never thought I'd use. Until I started rockin' fools with it in MW2.
The best way to think about this mouse is this way: what else do you have for your PC that will last ten years? And grow or shrink to fit your gaming style over that whole decade? Not even your monitor is this adjustable...
Oh, and there's the fabric-wrapped cord and the removable adjustment tool and the horizontal scroll wheel and the tin that comes with the extra thumb and pinkie plates and the container for the weights and the configuration software and... phew!
I wish I would've listened to others who had the same issue...

THE GOOD POITNS FIRST:
- horizontal thumb scroll wheel. All mice should have this. This should be as ubiquitous as the vertical scroll wheel has become. This is the simplest and best way to do horizontal scrolling. I've always found the tilt wheel to lack precision when scrolling. This is, by far, the best feature of the mouse and almost got me to keep it despite its problems.
- adjustable thumb rest. I have small hands, but I can adjust to almost any size mouse, large or small, but just gripping further forward or back on the mouse. The one thing I can't adjust, though, is where my thumb goes. That's why I love the adjustable length thumb rest. I can grip the mouse where I like and the thumb buttons are always there.
- dedicated precision booster button. This frees up the other two buttons to use as forward and back. On other mice, you have to sacrifice one in order to program it with this function.
- While not unique to this mouse, the three on-the-fly programmable settings are great. My previous mouse was a Microsoft, and they have the ability to automatically set profiles associated with each program, but to me, that's not as good a solution. Sometimes, I like having multiple profiles even within the same program because there just aren't enough buttons on the mouse (and I feel that adding too many more buttons would wind up having its own set of problems).
NOT GREAT, BUT NOT TERRIBLE:
- As mentioned above, there is no way to automatically set profiles so that they initiate when you open a certain program (like when you open a particular game).Read more ›
I went with the wired model because I didn't like the R.A.T. 9's proprietary battery, and its claim of "only" needing a swap every couple of days under normal use. (They don't list replacement batteries as being available as accessories, so what does one do after the provided batteries don't hold their charge?) Besides, the wire isn't that big a hassle to me anyway.
A mostly nice out-of-box experience, although I had some trouble separating the RAT from its plastic packaging. The installation went smoothly, with the usual "install drivers/software, plug in device when prompted" sequence.
The real joy though was fiddling with the customization options, and over the last week, I must've tried every single alternate part, weight variation, and position alternative. Eventually, I settled onto having the pinkie shelf installed, 2 of the 5 weights, the original palm rest left as is, and the thumb shelf shifted both forward and pivoted out about 2/3 of the way. (On edit a few weeks later: I swapped the original palm rest for the knobby one. Makes it easier to keep my hand in position, I've found.Read more ›

Not the best mouse I've ever owned, but it's a good cheap start into gaming mouses. I think my biggest issues with it was the weight, it just doesn't feel like it was well made. Read morePublished 1 month ago by MaximumSmoove
