Hello, I dont know which category tghis goes in but whihc is the best for FPS games?

RAT 7 or the MMO 7 by cyborg?

I know the RAT is better for FPS but I thought that the MMO would just have more buttons and I like the colours..

what Do you guys think? the MMO is about 20 pounds more expensive ...

in my opinion the rat7 is a piece of junk. unless you baby the thing or are generally very easy on mice you risk breaking it.

see all of those adjustable knobs and interfaces? that takes away from the structural integrity of the mouse. meaning if you drop it off the desk, are a little rough with it when you get frustrated in game, or something else happens you might break it much sooner then a typical mouse.

the best mouse for gaming is probably a logitech g series. i personally use a razer deathadder and it works fine but the rubber coating is not for everyone.

i wouldnt use a rat7 even if i was given one for free. i would hock it on ebay and buy something better.

just my opinion. of course "extreme pro gamers" who think they know better might try to state otherwise. the same people who think a $40 mousemat is going to make them play better.

As an owner of a RAT 7 my advice is to stay as far away from the brand as possible; 3 months in and it's already bricked. They're fantastic mice for a very short period of time but it will break, and the customer service is awful.

I've been looking for a new mouse for a week now and read hundreds of horror stories about the RAT 7, RAT 9 and RAT MMO7. They seem to have a flaw with the laser and only work for less then 6 months, people are also having huge problems with customer service and turn around time for a new mouse... which breaks quickly as well. Just google 'RAT 7 problem' to see pages and pages of unhappy customers.

Its a shame as I really wanted one. My old microsoft sidewinder is nearly dead and I cant get this model anymore :o (...

you kind sir are a complete retard the fact that felixthemaster asked this on a forum is asking what we think in other words he asks for our opinion.

@felixthemaster i wouldnt buy any of the mice i had both and they broke because they fell of my desk, i would recommend the Qpad 5k

RAT mouses are generally crap, i would go for a razer mouse over a RAT because my razer naga's been working amazingly over the past year or so :sol:

anonymous is a fan boy~~~
lalalalalalalala

both suck, trust me, best mouse from that price range is razer mamba,
but i would still not buy it only if someone give it free to me

i use logitech g series mouse and when it broken i started using razer deathrader
that razer IMO is the best value mouse(but not many features)

BUT if u still want an answer for ur question,
for money the best is RAT 7
if money not a problem, it MMO7(even though most people wont use it features)

Well I´m a proud owner of a RAT 7, I used to have a razer, but I saw this one and I liked it so I bought it. That was more than 2 years ago and it stills works perfectly. No problems for me, great precision and just the necessary buttons to play many games. The mmo 7 is rather more for mmo games, like world of warcraft or similar, because of its macro functions.

I may be lucky, but this mouse is awsome for me and I´m not thinking of changing it for the moment.

Alright, 3 things to say.

a) I've read about 250 comments already today that scream "CYBORG IS BAD BUY RAZER". No offence to any of you, but the lot of ya sound like a bunch of Razer fanboys. Razer is good, as is Cyborg/Mad Catz. It comes down to preference, style, etc. I recommend trying both out at a local store.

b) I've read a few threads about bad quality, etc. I've used a R.A.T 3 for about 2, maybe 2 and a half years now. Has never let me down. Again, I'd recommend checking in-store.

c) It really does come down to personal preference. I'm considering upgrading to a R.A.T 7 as I love the feel of a R.A.T, and the weight and adjustment system is brilliant. If I was to give an actual piece of advice, it would be this:
Razer - For some performance depending on the model. Somewhat lack of features, and build quality is rumoured to be bad.
R.A.T - Feature heavy, weight adjustment, length, etc. Build quality is 50/50 between excellent and terrible. Sensors have bad history for some.

So yeah. Just remember not to limit your options to only these few. I enjoy other mice too.

i have had a rat7 for some time now my cat almost killed it with a glass of soda but beside having to dry it out with rice it has served me well i dont know about the mmo7 but my rat has been uber reliable i know 10 others with the same mouse and out of those 10 3 people sent there rats back keep in mind they have problems with chucking the mouse or slamming it when they lose

I have had my MMO 7 for about 6 months, and was happy for the first 3. I am not a fan of the razer stuff, and am VERY likly to just get rid of this MMO 7. the software for programming is crap, now my mouse goes to sleep in the middle of playing a game and im boned. Worst part is I have to crawl behind my computer to unplug and replug it to wake it up... I would say that the design of the MMO 7 was great, in theory only... I want my proformance MX back....

I own a rat MMO7 and was terrified at the expense. But I play MMOs and it was a great investment.. i have it over a year. No problems
Nice and sturdy... adjustable and comfy. It is heavy and you just slide it.... now I have it I program everything.
The software is easy to use. Comes with a decent set of premade profiles and very simple to customise them. I have a profile for skyrim....i use all the keys...
Really only have 10 programmable keys.. the shift button is too awkward to use. Then switching between the 3 sets of 10 keys is not great either. unless you have different class specs.. but again that is back to MMOs. The MMO is ideal if you need more keys... if not go for the basic rat.
I only saw this cos I am looking to buy one for a new rig. to have the same mouse upstairs and down. Good luck.

I've owned the RAT 7 since 2011 (I think, got it with my custom rig and it was about that time) and it's worked ever since. I've banged the crap out of it when losing in pvp, even got the dent marks on my desk to prove it. It still works as intended. I've keybound the important stuff to the buttons on the mouse and found I need more, so am now waiting for the RAT MMO7 to arrive. Personally, I like the feel and handling of the RAT, with the right amount of weight and resistance for my hand and excellent button layout. I did find with the RAT 7 that the profile editor was a bit funky, but it could be that I didn't follow the directions correctly. Anyway I since have and now am enjoying game play on WoW even more.

oh, by the way, to me it's worth the price. It all comes down to what you can spend that will stay in your budget. I saved money to get this and it was a terrific investment.

It is now September.... I have 2 * cyborg rat7 mmo versions.
I bought another as i play mostly upstairs on the decent graphics card machine at night- and then when kids are up im on the laptop. Same set up on both.
I love the 7 MMO. It is insanely good. I am playing ESO and only need about 9 keys - but the MMO gives lots of programmable options. It feels good to use and has given me very few problems. Very rarely it glitches and will not move to the left or a point on the screen. Rare means once every month or two. A wiggle and lift of the mat and back down and it seems to correct itself so it might be a piece of dust of something.
I still totally recommend these beasts. Worth every penny and has encouraged me to look at high end product in other parts of accessory market such as head phones etc. I always though a mouse was just a mouse. Not true.

Quoting myself....buy what you can afford and too expensive i think is rediculous too. But this product made me realise that cheap is not just as good - it is not the same just with no brand name on.
