The Next Step in the Evolution of the
Sleek, versatile, and decidedly next-gen, Mad Catz'
R.A.T. M Wireless Mobile Gaming Mouse gives you the performance you
would expect from a R.A.T. and combines it with the portability of a
notebook mouse. Featuring the latest Bluetooth technology - as well as a
nano dongle for devices lacking Bluetooth connectivity - the R.A.T. M is
just as comfortable at home as it is in the office. With programmable
action buttons and an intuitive drag-and-drop software interface for
button customization, this is the premiere mouse for the gamer
GameSmart Multi-platform Compatible via
Bluetooth Smart Technology
Bluetooth Smart, featuring Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy (BLE),
is a new, power-efficient version of Bluetooth wireless technology,
already integrated into many modern computing devices. When paired with
a Bluetooth Smart-compatible device, setup for the R.A.T. M is
ultra-quick and very easy. Seamlessly connect to PCs, Macs, tablets,
smartphones and laptops in a matter of minutes.
USB Nano Dongle for Devices without Bluetooth
No Bluetooth in your device? No problem! Just use the
included USB nano dongle - which is conveniently stored within the
underside of the R.A.T. M - and get connected. Its minute size won't add
any bulk to your device, and it's nearly invisible once installed.
Up to 1 Year of Use from 2 AAA Batteries
Thanks to integrated Bluetooth Smart technology and a
power-efficient, 'twin-eye' sensor, the R.A.T. M is a champion of power
conservation. The included AAA batteries provide up to one year's worth
of energy, more than twice that of the previous generation of Bluetooth
Powerful GameSmart Technology
Products featuring GameSmart technology operate
seamlessly with a variety of different mobile devices. GameSmart enables
near-universal compatibility for PCs and Macs, as well as the latest
generation of tablets such as the Microsoft Surface. By utilizing
Bluetooth Smart, GameSmart wireless devices also feature simplified
setup and extended battery life.
When one product functions with a multitude of devices, you'll find
comfort in knowing that a new device won't require yet another purchase.
Whether gaming on your laptop, creating spreadsheets on your desktop, or
editing photos on your tablet, the R.A.T. M is your go-to mouse.
Perfect Your Grip
To improve comfort and provide a custom fit, the palm
rest on the R.A.T. M adapts to your hand. Easily adjust the overall
length to suit your grip style; four different settings range from
0-15mm in 5mm increments.
True 6400 DPI Laser Sensor with 2 Custom Settings
The Mad Catz R.A.T. M Wireless Mobile Gaming Mouse's
power-efficient, 'twin-eye' laser sensor reads each axis separately and
tracks up to a stunning 6 meters per second with pinpoint accuracy.
Pro-gamers who prefer low sensitivity with high movement speed will
always experience correct tracking and precision. Two user-definable DPI
settings range from 25 to 6400 and the DPI button lets you easily cycle
through custom settings.
Unique 5D Button Enables 5
Commands with a Single Control
Use the 5D Button to click up and down, left and
right, and press in. Gain the competitive advantage by always knowing
exactly where each and every mouse button resides - without the hassles
of training aids or the need to actually look at the mouse to locate a
feature. Perfect positioning under your thumb provides lightning-fast
access to your most important gaming commands.
Custom Travel Pouch Included
When the need for a great mouse finds you on the road,
the included travel pouch provides convenient storage while helping to
protect your device from the elements.

A decent bluetooth mouse with one problem, Wi-Fi interferes with the signal. Bought this to use with my HTPC which is 10 feet away. If Wi-Fi is disabled, the mouse works fine. If enabled, the mouse is laggy, jittery at anything over 2 feet away. Further than 2 feet the mouse is unsuable, loses signal. I've tried cycling through all the different channels on my access point but didn't help.
I wanted to say NCIX has been exceptional throughout this ordeal. This mouse will not work using Bluetooth 4.0 over Mac OS or Windows 7. Mad Catz has been completely useless and had attempted to deny that it was there faulty design. If you visit this hidden website from Mad Catz(http://madcatz.com/qrcodes/ratm) it shows the true compatibility. The product description from Mad Catz (on their website and here on NCIX) it says the mouse is bluetooth compatible with Mac OS and Windows 7, but it is not. Mad Catz Customer Support tried to convince me that the Bluetooth 4.0 in my Retina Macbook Pro is not compatible, saying that Bluetooth 4.0 is not Bluetooth Smart Ready even though it is the same thing. I have windows 8 installed on my Mac and bluetooth did work, therefore this is not a hardware issue as Mad Catz attempted to claim. Please steer clear of this mouse unless you have Windows 8. The mouse does come with a usb dongle which does work in Mac OS and Windows 7, but then why spend the extra money to get a Bluetooth 4.0 mouse. I returned this mouse after 2 days, NCIX has been very generous and has waved the restocking and shipping, since Mad Catz has lied about this products compatibility.
