Tweakable / adjustable mouse M.M.O. 7:



(a R.A.T. 7 was also posted here; it's the same mouse, just with 10 buttons less)

Did they ever address the sensor on these?  I recall when the RAT was released there was some major flaws with its sensor (tracking, accel).  Really cool design, but it failed the functional test.

I never had any tracking issue with my two M.M.O. 7 (on my first one the scroll wheel went dead though). I think I remember some who complained about the 6400 DPI twin-eye sensor being prone to erratic behavior in presence of cat hair or dirt.

 

 

The R.A.T. was released a while ago, I think soon after the Razer Deathadder in 2006. The newest RAT has the 8200 DPI Phillips® Doppler-laser sensor.

 

 

By the time the M.M.O. 7 got released the R.A.T. was still the only mice on the market to address so many individual hand shape and size difference and grip preferences.

 

Its thumb panel button layout is ergonomic; all 10 buttons can be reached with barely any thumb movement. It has a horizontal scroll wheel.

 

Design > “Function” for me. I replaced mine, and I would buy another. I have come to rely on it (macro-wise) to web browse, navigate the OS, use software and play games.

I have a Steelseries Sensei RAW Heat Orange. Sorry I can't post pics as I need 40 posts or something :frown:

Man, if guys from ESReality.com came here, they'd eat this whole thread alive. No offense, guys, but audiophiles are best-suited to judging audio gear and gamers are best-suited to judging gaming gear. I had just a glimpse of some of the things said here and cringed. For the record, Razer generally isn't durable with just a few exceptions (and neither is Steelseries); lightweight mice are generally the best choices for FPS games because they're easier to physically control, especially if you're a low-sens gamer; and most importantly, all laser mice have tracking issues. Go infrared optical, folks. Lower CPI ratings on average (Although not always, as the G502 proves.), but most of them have flawless 1:1 tracking and are thus more precise than laser-based alternatives.

 

I can see other mice working if you're just using them for their ergonomics or productivity features, or you happen to play MMOs and require a ton of macro buttons instead of absolute tracking precision, but if you're using these things for RTS or FPS gaming, or anything else that requires minute precision, opticals are really the only way. This is the general consensus of the gaming community. Laser mice have acceleration issues, some have Z-axis tracking, and they're pretty picky about what surfaces they work on. Yeah, true, they can track on glass, but often jitter to insane degrees on surfaces which aren't mostly flat, including a lot of cloth mousepads.

 

I tend to use this site to learn about audio gear, and I'm glad such a resource is available for the masses, but its specialization is audio. For mice, I recommend instead that you visit ESReality.com or Overclock.net. One of the best articles I've seen was on Geekhack, though. (http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=56240.0) Geekhack, Overclock.net, and Deskthority are great places to learn about keyboards, especially mechanicals.

Using a Razor Death Adder 2013 ed. atm as I got it cheap of Amazon earlier this year. It performs quite well in all the games I play and the build quality+ led lighting (could have been better if you could change the colors) are great.

I'm an ESR guy and I facepalm when I read this thread :deadhorse:

If you guys are still interested in the Ninox Aurora mouse, you can pre-order it here : http://ninox.org/shop.html

Mouse made by the community. I was part of the beta test team and it's a killer mouse.

I am a big Razer Naga fan. I dislike their keyboards and headphones (they feel gaudy to me) but the Naga is my go-to mouse. It highly increases productivity, as well as performance in all game-genres. I've owned the Molten, Epic, and 2014 versions.

 

The 2014 has mechanical thumb buttons which I greatly enjoy, and the Synapse 2.0 software is much better than the competition from Logitech imho. It offers full program-ability for buttons and can match different preset profiles to different programs. It is seamless for me.

I have been very patiently waiting for the Roccat XTD optical to actually hit retail. But said patience is running out - they announced it in January, it's been on sale in selected European locations for three months and still is completely MIA in N. America as far as I know. My Corsair M65's middle button retired itself last winter and I've been holding out till now. But I'm a few days away from giving up on them altogether.

Anyone has a good mouse and mousepad to recommend?

 

I've tried Artisan mousepads when I was at Tokyo Game Show last month and feel that they are really good.

For mouse I think the current one that catches my eye is the Mionix Naos 7000.

 

I need a good one for mainly 3D modelling and the occasional game. :D

I'm using a Logitech G400s (hyperglides mousefeet) and a Artisan Hien and couldn't be more happy to be honest. This combo is going to last a very long time. And just to say, I'm very picky with my mouse/mousepad combo since I've played at a high level on some competitive games.

If you want a more silky feel with your mousepad (the Hien has a much more rough feeling to the hand/wrist like a pair of jeans) you can look at the Artisan Zero.
