Also, I typically use this mouse oftentimes over 10h a day gaming.
Owned two separate RAT 3's over the past 4-5 years. First one was replaced by Madcatz under warranty when the spring became loose and stopped functioning well, and just recently started having troubles again with my right clicks releasing and re-registering in extremely short intervals (causes issues when aiming in Gears 4, PUBG, and Destiny, or when moving in League).
Being a relatively cheap mouse, I felt I had received more than my money's worth, and would heavily recommend the RAT 3 to anyone looking for a new mouse that doesn't have much to spend, but is looking for something that'll perform well.
I may move on to a different brand from this point, just so I don't get too attached to the product line, but my time spent using these mice was always a pleasure.
I owned one for about 10 months and it worked terrific, but after about 8 months the mouse would occasionally freeze up and had to be unplugged and plugged back in to get it to work. This was a very intermittent problem that became more and more frequent until it completely froze up and would not work at all at about 10 months after purchase. The mouse saw a ton of use, but was never abused and looked to be in as good of physical condition as when it was brand new because I had taken very good care of it. I was able to send it in to the manufacturer to get it repaired (had to pay for the shipping but still much cheaper than buying a new mouse) and got it back in about 3 weeks. I received a note with the new/repaired mouse stating that the new mouse only has a warranty of one month which I was a little suspicious of, but didn't want to cause much of an issue about. The new mouse that had been returned and supposedly repaired only lasted about 4 month this time. It had the exact same problem as before only this time the problem degenerated to completely unusable after only 2 weeks.
Overall this is a terrific performer, but you are really taking a chance on how long it will last before it breaks down.
I do wish more of the buttons were mappable through the software, and I also wish there were more buttons on the side overall.
The front side button is a little hard to press. Always has been on this model. When gaming the press doesnt always register which is a problem.
Unfortunately the DPI settings do not save once you power off your computer, therefore you have to manually adjust the sensitivity everytime. The positive is that the button to do so is conveniently placed on the mouse.
At max DPI there is minimal mouse movement to get the cursor where you want it. I'm using 1080p on a 27 inch monitor, and never needed anything higher. If I had a 4k setup, however, I would probably go with something higher.
My last gripe is that the finish is glossy as opposed to matte.
