    Well I was talking to Easy Rhino the other day about this and he said that it was "fail". Honestly I didn't know one way or another if he was right but it was already shipped. Anyway if it did suck I could just sell it. Yesterday I got my new R.A.T. 7 mouse in and to my surprise East Rhino was wrong. Dead wrong.....Thank G-d!

    Anyway this mouse is awesome. The build quality is great and is hands down the most comfortable mouse I have ever owned. I was nervous as hell honestly. It looked to cheesy to be any good but man is it great! Check out some of these pics! If you have any questions ask away!

    WHat the hell did the shipper do to it? It looks like it's been sledgehammered.

    Nice! I have a question. When you are at desktop, if you pick up the mouse up, then back down, does the pointer on the screen move towards the bottom right?

    I never pick it up. But I tried what you said and yeah it did. Maybe 1/4". Why?

    I know its wild looking. But man its the best feeling mouse I have ever had.

    Just wondering. I tend to pick up my mouse from time to time and it just bothers me when playing FPS's and stuff like that. That's just me though. That is one badass looking mouse! :rockout:

    Now I know what you are talking about.
    Well when I pick it up it moves down. However when I put it down it doesn't move again. If you have some spare cash I recommend this thing.

    Hmmmmmm maybe I spoke to soon.

    Just gave BC2 a go and for some reason it sometimes "sticks" when I push her to the right. The mouse itself doesnt stick. The sensitivty. Its like the mouse hit a wall or something.

    Anyway I just updated the driver and Ill post back with results. Its weird because it works fine everywhere else. Just in BC2

    picked this up a few weeks ago. love it. It does move a bit when you pick it up, but not enough to mess you up ingame (or me anyway, I pick it up all the time) it also likes to jitter when I have my bass turned up (and music running) which is a pain if I'm ingame (any game) luckily I usually wear a headset.

    haven't had that bfbc issue though, so it's not universal (I'm running stock drivers)

    Nice one I've been looking at these, I was waiting for someone to say something positive about it.


    EDIT:
    £90? Hmmm..

    I have been looking at one of these for myself. I currently use a G5 and find it is a bit big for my hand. I assume the RAT 7 can be set short? Also, have you tried the pinky rest? Does this work ok or not?

    Looks like a Decepticon. I would bet on a similarly styled keyboard coming out pretty soon from the company.


    That's what she said.

    DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT BUY THIS MOUSE!!!

    I've had one, and it is the worst piece of shit ever made. I have no idea how anybody can stand to use it.

    I put a fairly large post over at [H] slamming it (for good reason) and don't want anybody else to get screwed over it.

    I'm glad somebody has had a positive experience with it. I want to love that mouse, I really do.

    I just didn't want a bunch of people on TPU to go out and buy this when it has numerous widespread issues.

    It doesn't have "numerous widespread issues" don't be making things up because you don't like it personally. As a matter of fact it has a TON of positive reviews. Even the other users on this site love it. You my friend are in the minority.

    Yeah and I read a lot of people who love it on there along with people who dislike it. Only issue I will agree with is the "cursors" jump of which I would not have noticed unless someone pointed it out. Would you like me to start post reviews?

    Go right ahead. All I know is the mouse that I got had some pretty obvious design flaws, and I would like people to look into them before purchasing to make sure that they won't be affected by them.

    One of the worst ones being if you pick up and put down your mouse ever to re-position it, this mouse won't be for you because of the Twin-Eye sensor. Mine also had extremely erratic tracking overall on any sensitivity/dpi.
