So why only 3 stars instead of 5?
The lifespan of this mouse is abysmal. I use it extremely regularly, both for work and for play. The button that will most likely break first is the left click, which has a horrible lifespan. As it starts to fail, you'll notice it click repeatedly when you only click once, which can get annoying fast because double clicking something you only want to single click creates unwanted effects. This will only get worse with time. But that's not the only part that will fail on this mouse, on one version the bottom sensor began to fail. Despite my attempts to clean both mouse and mousepad, that mouse eventually began unusable as it fails to properly register its movement, especially side to side motions.
I like this mouse so much that I kept buying it after each one would break. But now after a few years, I have a stockpile of these dead Rat 5 mice piled up in my closet, and enough is enough. I have FIVE of these dead mice (can prove with pics if requested), and I'm currently on my 6th and final reserve mouse. When this last one fails, I'm not buying more I'll be trying new brands and new mice. I'll miss this one a lot because it's so great, but it's lifespan is totally unacceptable for it's price. If I could buy them cheaper? I'd just buy a lifetime supply and just throw them out as each one inevitably fails in turn. But not at $75 a pop when they last a year or less of regular use.
Having contacted Mad Catz customer service in order to fix this (as it is under warranty for another 1.5 years), I have been met with constant delays and been all but completely ignored.
I would definitely never recommend this mouse to a friend and can certainly say, given this information now, I'm going to make sure the customer service is up to par. Hardware failures occur, but the complete negligence on part of Mad Catz has left a very bad taste in my mouth with their company.
In the other hand, I do not recommend people to buy it, as the company who makes the products (Mad Catz) is not providing support for any of their items.
Again, this is a great device, no doubts about that, but people should be informed about this problem too.
