Much like other Mad Catz mice, the R.A.T. Pro X3 Supreme is big on customization. Not just the shape, even the scroll wheel and mouse feet can be adjusted to one's liking. Furthermore, PixArt's PMW3389 and a polling rate of 3000 Hz promise very low latency.

"Mad Catz is a gaming peripherals company located in Hong Kong and has been around since 1989."

The company has gone bankrupt and restructured. I don't even know if it is the "same" company. Their stock is like usd $.0028.

I think it's like Hostess where another company has purchased all the IP but none of their stuff is as good as it was.

Same here, my first wireless was a Logitech MX1000 in 2004.

The mice are ok and surprisingly sturdy, but they defintely need to do something about the weight. I suppose they have to go to with heavier materials because of that structures, but for 230 I expect carbon fiber or something like that.

Benchmark Scores I once clocked a Celeron-300A to 564MHz on an Abit BE6 and it scored over 9000.
Sigh, another potentially good mouse ruined by utterly inexcusable schoolboy errors.

I'm using this cheap wireless mobile mouse today, a Microsoft WMO 3500. It's just a simple 3-button mouse with an AA battery for power and nothing fancy like bluetooth, just your old 2.4G RF transceiver.

However, looking at both the description and video on page four, I can see that one of the most critical buttons a gaming mouse can have (mouse 3) is a total disaster. This Microsoft mouse isn't a gaming mouse, but the scroll wheel clicks as you'd expect it to: No noticeable pre-travel and the actuation force required to click it isn't too different to mouse 1 and mouse 2. It really isn't hard to make a decent scroll wheel that is both a good wheel and a good button. Plenty of cheap, unexciting office mice have perfected this simple feat to the point that I don't even notice the scrollwheel on them. They just work.

Since scrolling and clicking are on the same button and the click action is often for an option in the scrollable menu (whether it's a menu or weapon/item select, the expectation is the same) having a scrollwheel that can click without accidentally scrolling or scroll without accidentally clicking is right up there near the top of the priorities list for a gaming mouse. In fact, I think it's joint second with latency after a decent, linear sensor.

Mad Catz: Made For Gamers by Gamers incompetent buffoons who have no idea what gamers need and just make things that look different for the sake of a USP.
