There are game peripheral companies, and then there's Mad Catz. The company's Cyborg line has grown stranger by the year, and has drawn the eyes of many a user.

It's not all for negative reasons, though. The new Cyborg R.A.T. Albino Gaming Mouse is definitely one of the slicker, wilder looking mice to surface this year, and it looks like a dream come true for hardcore gamers who love to tweak their input devices.


The new futuristic-looking mouse ships with a 6400DPI sensor, improved tracking capabilities and a matte Albino white finish. There's an adjustable thumb rest, adjustable height, a thumb scroll, DPI on-the-fly adjustments, a precision aim button, weighing system, and plenty of other things to tinker with. At $99.99, it's hardly inexpensive, but it's not everyday users can find a mouse that looks like it came straight out of the future. 

The new edition is compatible with both PC and Mac platforms, and can be ordered today

It looks pretty awesome but is it still comfortable in your hand? I guess it's something one could get used to.

"is it still comfortable in your hand?"

This mouse has so many different ways to customize the mouse, that it pretty much fits any one. However it takes some time to find the right fit.

Also the battery in the wireless one takes about 5 secs to change, so less chance of messing up if you are playing a game.

OK, for that price I should be able to specify color, and I want one in brass and copper.

I just got the CYBORG RAT 9 wireless mouse as a bday present recently. It is amazing. The best mouse i've ever used so far. I don't use the weights as I find it makes the mouse way too heavy.

It came with 2 batteries, one for charging while the other goes in your mouse. It also came with a dedicated wireless sender/receiver so there was no set up at all (just the drivers).

The only problem i found with this mouse is the back and forward buttons where the thumb goes. It should have been another 1/2 inch forward, and the precision button should have been slightly more down.

I would give this mouse a 9.5/10. the .5 missing for a slightly badly located back/forward button.

One more thing...I would say the constuction of this mouse is worth every dollar it costs. The skeletal frame is some kind of aluminum, with hard plastic for the outer shells - mouse buttons, thumb rests, etc.

I would say anyone looking for a great mouse - take a look at this one.

I guess for me when i see a product and stop back to look at it again it get pretty HOT to consider and notice some things a bit differently.Sure would like to get my hands on this for a good look see and feel sometime.One of things I have noticed is that on some days I sometimes feel like my thumbs is a bit 'long' Seriously even though it 's the same hand as yesterday ..Anyone that's played enough golf can understand what is meant by having a short' or long thumb with grip and wrist position. yet somehow can seem to feel a bit different on occasion..For those reasons and the flexibility of this mouse adjustments looking better.all the time.And the black ?? woo -hoo ! way cool !
