Cyborg R.A.T. 9 Wireless Gaming Mouse

We often say that products have a unique design but the R.A.T. takes that statement to the extreme, in its stock form it really does stand out from every other mouse and that is before we start to customise it to our tastes… more on that later, first the basics.

As well as the standard left and right buttons the R.A.T. 9 has a clickable scroll wheel, only the fly DPI rocker and mode switch button within reach of our first two fingers. To aid the user in knowing which mode is active the logo on the selector button lights up (3 Colours), as does the DPI icon.

On the left of the button we find two reasonably standard thumb buttons. Beside these is a precision aim selector which drops the mouse speed to a pre-defined level which is designed to assist us in aiming during gameplay. These are not the only items in this area though, we also have a thumb scroll wheel which sits behind the thumb buttons.

Considering how busy the left side of the mouse is it is quite a surprise to see that the right side is reasonably plain.

On the base of the mouse we find a large metal plate on which the rest of the mouse is built. Placed around this are PTFE "Slick" feet which ensure the R.A.T. 9 glides optimally. In the centre of the mouse we find a twin-eye 5600DPI sensor which has an acceleration rating of 50G with 1000MHz polling and 6m/sec tracking speed. Also located on the base of the mouse is an on/off button.

So, that’s normally where we would end the description of a mouse however the R.A.T. 9 offers so much more than this, so let’s look at some of the other features…
