A little over 3 years later and I can tell you the love affair was torrid and bitter
on March 27, 2015
This mouse enticed me with it's futuristic look and the myriad of ways to configure it and customize it to MY needs.
A little over 3 years later and I can tell you the love affair was torrid and bitter.
-It's neat-o looking. Most of the kids on your block will not have one.
-You can adjust the weight.
-You can adjust the dpi.
-It does glide across a gaming mouse pad very well.
-You can adjust the dpi. You'll never get it perfect on the up/down dpi on the mouse. I never saw a way to set the clicks to my preferred settings anyways. I had to always manually do it through the program editor.
-A non-perfect surface for a gaming mouse will cause it to forget to read that it's moving.
-You won't use many of the buttons. The slow speed aiming? Yeah, it works, but it's a gimmick. In the heat of gaming you'll forget you have it so it's not a useful feature.
-The rest for your thumb will end up just giving you pain in your thumb from the way your thumb will rub against it depending on how much pressure you use to grip the mouse.
-It's fairly sturdy until it drops from 18 inches onto carpet. And then it will mess the bed like an infant that doesn't know any better. It will mis-click, triple click, and not click. From an 18 inch drop onto carpet.Carpet. Not a 5 foot drop onto concrete.
The amount of money I spent on this mouse is what kept me using it for so long. I'm cheap and I felt I needed my money's worth. I replaced this mouse with an $11 Sharkk mouse that works brilliantly and fits my hand quite nice. The Sharkk mouse also has adjustable dpi and weights. For a fraction of the cost.
I'll brb.. I'm taking the RAT 7 outside so I can wind up and smash it against the concrete to show it how a drop should really affect it. I'm really going to enjoy watching all that plastic fly everywhere knowing that it's successor was almost 90% less than this gimmick. There's really no reason to bother with this mouse when Reddragon and Sharkk make alternatives at a tenth of the price.
