Pros
great feel
great customizability
nice buttons
Cons
no spot to see battery life other than in driver
random issues.
Summary
I have an all new build that i spent over 9 grand on in total, and i may have gotten lucky or unlucky by having problems with only 2 things; my raid card and this mouse. My problems with this mouse include the battery dying in the middle of games of league of legends or really any online game. As well as the battery not making proper connection (thats my guess because removing and putting the battery back in fixes it.) and not powering the laser to actually work. Sometimes it also doesn't like moving up or down on my screen, it actually refuses to but it will move left and right fine. I realize this may be only my certain mouse since i do not see many other reviews with negatives but when people look at things they want to know what can go wrong with it. This can all probably be fixed by buying the wired model because my rat5 didn't encounter any of these problems. Another thing is that the scroll wheel seems to stick every now and again when rolling, it could be that something spilled in it and i didn't notice but once again listing all problems i have encountered. Now if it wasn't for the fact of the mouse not moving up and down on my screen during a game , i would give this a 5/5 because even with all the other issues i love the mouse, my buddy used this mouse for about 20 minutes and bought my old one off of me even. But that is a big issue for me and once again i could have gotten a faulty one but it only just started doing it a few weeks ago. So overall i would still give this product a 3/5-4/5 still not completely decided because im pretty butt hurt over all the times i die from it shutting off or not working. I would overall recommend the wired version of this mouse to anyone looking at this product tho for those reasons above.

Pros
Very adjustable especially for my big hands
Really glidy and good weight customization
thumb will very conveniant for volume control
easily set different dpi settings for different purposes and fast switching in between with the middle button
wireless is very clean, makes my desk look a lot tidier
2 batteries for continuous play
Cons
Sometimes the vertical or horizontal axis fail for short times probably some kind of lag between the mouse and the wireless reciever
Summary
The RAT 9 is definitely on the costly side for a mice. However I feel that the investement is worth it as it will be a long time from this one to the next one and I will probably purchase this model again. The thumbwheel makes volume adjustment very quickly so I don't even have to use the keyboard shortcuts during gameplay. The customization on the RAT 9 is amazing and fits well to my big hands and the wireless functionality is great. Highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good gaming mouse with high functionality and comfort.

Pros
Extreme combustibility, really comfortable to use, long battery life (and has 2 batteries so you always have power), really durable, everything works as advertised
Cons
fiddly battery (I explain in the description)
Summary
I have had some trouble with the batteries falling asleep or something so I have to take it out and put it back in. this only happens when i leave it without use for a couple hours. though it only takes a 10 second in and out to get it back to work.

all in all if you want a mouse that feels great in your hand and will last forever get this!

Pros
Fits any hand
Excellent programming software
Looks awesome
Hot-swap batteries
Cons
Could have more programmable buttons
Summary
I've had this mouse for quite some time now and I have had no complaints. Every now and then it seems that a spec of dust or a small crumb will prevent it from functioning, but nothing a quick wipe won't fix. This mouse can also hold 3 profiles which seems like it can come in handy if you need macros. This mouse allows for weights to be added or removed as well which, surprisingly, can change the whole experience of the mouse. The best feature of this mouse is that every little bit of it can me modified.
This beast was definitely worth every penny, although it could have a few more programmable buttons on it.

Pros
-Fully customizable
-No lag
-5600 DPI
-Precision aim button let you temporary adjust DPI on the fly (ex.For sniper)
Cons
Battery autonomy
Kind of too sensible ( Dust or cat hair interfear with the mouse precision, once clean, everything is back to normal)
Price
Summary
Very good wireless gaming mouse. I never notice any lag during Battlefield 3 game play.
Battery will last a good gaming day 6-7 hours and but you can rapidly swap the lithium battery with the one charged in the base station. The battery take 3 hours to charge and you get up to 7 hours of continuous game play.
The customization of the mouse make it confortable, and make it fit your hand perfectly. It won't fit you if you have small hands.

Recommanded...
Have fun !

Pros
High quality build
DPI switching capability
Savable profiles
Highly customization
Wireless but with fast response times
Cons
No dock?
Summary
What sets this mouse apart from other gaming mouses is this mouses ability to be customized by the user. I found this to be very difficult and frustrating, but worth it as it is only a one time thing. Other than that, I loved the build quality. The mouse is built with high quality materials from top to bottom. The metal is nice and thick and the plastic pieces are sturdy and have a great textile feeling to them.

Pros
Feels great in your hand
Awesome design
Second battery for continuous use
Cons
Short battery life
Summary
Great mouse, the customizable grips are extremely comfortable for any of the various "grip styles". It's visually striking and I have not noticed any input lag due to the wireless connection.

My only major gripe is the battery life. This is remedied with the second battery but it does lead to very frequent battery swaps: about once a day depending on use.

Pros
Love the changable grips and positions for the thumb, palm rest and pinky. Changeable weights are also nice, if you want a different feel.
Cons
Expensive and batteries don't last as long as you might like.
Summary
Love the customizability of almost everything on the mouse itself. Bigger hands or smaller hands or whatever you need for your style of grip. Weights are great to add or reduce the amount of weight you normally like for gaming. The head shot button is great for cutting the dpi in half so you can get those kils quickly.

My concerns are the huge price for the item and the short time the battery lasts.

It does come with a secondary battery which can be hot swapped out and charging while you use the fresh one. The transmitter doubles as a charging unit and the receiver for the mouse itself.

You just have to decide for yourself if the cost justifies having one of these bad boys.

Pros
fully customizable
wireless
comfortable
Cons
material
Summary
once i saw this mouse, i had to get it. although 160 dollars for a mouse is a bit surprising, its functions and ability to customized anything is too awesome to resist. the material feels like its made from cheapy plastics though

Pros
Looks awesome.
"headshot" button
very smooth
Cons
Battery life is brutal
Thumb buttons are somewhat uncomfortable
Non replaceable feet
Software is terrible
Summary
Coolest looking mouse ever. Functions very well, and the "headshot" button is awesome for FPS games.

Despite the customizable features, I find this mouse terribly uncomfortable for a palm grip. Finger/claw grip is fine. Also, There is no horizontal scroll in the middle wheel. You have to make a macro for the thumbwheel to scroll sideways :(

If you want it for the looks, get it. If you want a comfortable mouse, get a Sidewinder X8, RAZER etc.

Comment: The Cyborg R.A.T. 9 Gaming Mouse is one of the most customizable wireless gaming mice available, but it's also one of the most expensive.
