I’m here to give you guys a product review of the right 7 gaming mouse pad mad cats in this review I’ll be going over the design hardware performance taking a quick look at the actual program. And I’ll be giving you guys my final verdict so let’s go ahead and start with the design aspect as you can tell the rat 7 gaming mouse has a unique design to it. Which is quite different than any ordinary Mouse that I’ve seen thus far which is pretty cool because it’s unique in its own separate ways that kind of looks like someone took a bunch of pieces of plastic a little bit of work in metal shop?
And then kind of combine the two to make its own creation and this you have a rat 7 mouse which is a pretty cool-looking design overall because it’s different from any other mouse that I’ve seen out in the market. I mean to kind of do a little comparison steel series mouse as you can see these are two different looks two different designs but I like the look and appeal of the rat 7 because it’s unique it’s different and it catches my attention now. Next I want to go over is the hardware in terms of the programming features and what you’re able to do because this is a fully customizable mouse.
Now for programming features this features up to 18 programmable buttons which I’ll go over those right now you have to right and left click. You also have the mouse will up down and click you also have a mode setting you have mode 1 which is red loaded to which is blue and mode 3 which is pink so you can program each of those buttons and each of those different modes. You also have what’s called a precision shot down here which will lower the DPI setting or you could program that for a different button for example when a play battlefield 4. I like to have this one to go to my pistol as quickly as possible right now runs out of ammunition for my main weapon you also have the two clickable buttons.
On the side and of course you have the side and glass will your left and your right you also have a setting right which is the DPI settings so every time you press the DPI setting up it will increase the DPI or pressing down or decrease the DPI. Which you have a light indication with up to four bars indicating of the DPI is high or low and as I stated this is a fully customized book mouse which you can customize it any few different ways. For example right now here’s what I have it set to as you can see I have this sled for my pinky rest, I have this extended out here instead of in and I’ll show you guys how to do that but first let’s take a quick look at the accessories this includes you do have three different changeable palm rests and three different changeable pinky rests.
Which I’ll bring out right now so here is a pinky rest which features a grip here’s another one which is exactly like that but without the grip then from the palm rest you kind of have a flat which is kind of like the grip one except without the grip. So if you just prefer you know having less intact on your palm you can use something like that or if you want something that has more added to your palm.
You have one that’s more two more raised up for bigger hands so whether or not you if you have small hands medium hands are a large hands this mouse is easy able to customize to fit your proper needs. I have small hands so if it’s me quite well down here you have a the palm rest which you can extend out so whatever fits your personal needs which is really nice because like I said you can customize it to where you feel comfortable with or you can completely remove it and change it out for something different.
So maybe I want to use the one that has a higher palm rest to it, I just used the wrong one this is the one with a higher palm rest so maybe I want one with a higher palm rest so you do have many options for that also to right here for the arrest. You get have it out like I have right now or you could push this back in by using a unique tool which is attached, you take this tool you place it right there in that one screw now you can change it so maybe I want this to be more in tighten it back up boom you’re ready to go now. It kind of looks like more of a standard Mouse in this case which is great of course another nice feature is that if you take the tool and place it in this slot right here. You could extend this to go forward or back for me, I have it to where I needed to be, So I’m not going to demonstrate that as you can see when I have my hand on the mouse I could easily reached the precision shot and the buttons off to the side. You’re also able to change the pinky rest which you take your tool you just unscrew this just note that the tools a little bit hard to grip. Because there’s not much to it which kind of take your time just does turn after turn.
Choose which one you want to use, so maybe I’m now using a bigger palm maybe I want the grip pinky rest place that in the slot takes the screw, place it back in and then tighten. Now it looks like a normal Mouse rather than different so all kinds of unique features which is great for the product not only that this also features a weight system on the back. Where you have five different weights so you can easily unscrew this right here and you can change out the weights to whether you want all the weights in or just a certain amount. So whatever fits your personal needs you can do that so pretty easy overall it’s like I said highly customizable not only programmable but so you can have it to your own personal liking which is a three featured with this product now the next thing I want to go ahead and quickly go over with you guys is the overall program. All right now we’re going to go ahead and take a look at the actual software and how to program the different keys on the mouse but first if you haven’t done so already you do need to visit the mascots official website to download both the driver and the software next in order to customize your mouse and to activate game mode.
You just highlight over towards located over in the corner right click it and go to profile editor then you’re going to get the madcatz logo bringing you to the actual program. Itself it is very easy to use and it’s not too complicated so on the very first page you have the product which gives you some basic information over on the setting is where you get set your DPI setting. Will as you can see when I press up the DPI settings will increase and I could easily manually change where I want it to be so we’re at it whatever it is I will come to what I can change.
Whatever it is that you prefer go up again it’s going to go to the max which is 6400 I go to the lowest for the lowest is 25 as you can see my mouse wheel is going pretty slow go upsetting I’m going a bit faster. Go up one another one mouse is going pretty quickly again but once I get max just the slight movement of my mouse goes crazy all over the spring. Where you have what’s called the precision aim if you choose to use this now the maximum you go and when you click the DPI shows how quick the mouse is going to move in terms of DPI sayings so now that I’m pressing the DPI as you can see my mouse is going pretty slow. Why do you have this issue it’s not doing it now but every so often it happened to move my mouse to the left sometimes my own. Like it will kind of jump but that’s like random of course the lower you have it the best of the DPI is going to be when you press that so obviously precision name. You want to lower the pied that precise sniper shot so pretty easy to do once you have the settings you want you push apply. Next is the programming here you guys set up different programming keys and of course you can easily turn the mouse wheel to get an idea of how to the mouse looks so pretty cool. And here you get set up all the different programming features like I said you have a few different modes you have mode 1 which is read mode 2 which is blue and mode 3 which is pink now you can easily set up any video cam profile or you could download other users profiles as well for example I have different settings.
So I’m going to go ahead and open up 1 I’ll say I’m in the mood for a battlefield 4 I’m going to go ahead and open that up. What kind of things do I have here while the precision shot will access my pistol the first button below what access my defibrillator since I like to place the assault class next mowed down after that will either give ammo or help depending on which class complain. As here I tend not to use these kids I just find that I just didn’t find any use for these at all and once you have your different settings you want to program it you can easily test the speed so as you can see pressing to win this case getting to my pistol is very quick and the different buttons. As well very simple to do you need to do is go over and then go ahead and open up another one just hover over and you can easily set it to whatever it is you want pretty simple to do. Once you have it to your proper settings you click Save then you also click the activation profile in this case activate profile which you could easily double check down here. Now you can use this program or features if you don’t have the activation on you will not be able to use the programming features on the mouse you must make sure you press activate profile of course. Last but not least is the support work we need help and support you could easily go to these different settings it’s basically simple as that now let’s go ahead and get back to the performance now that we’ve gotten the chance to check out some of the programming features and the software. How does it perform overall and I got to say the performance of this message is fantastic I mean the fact that you could easily change the DPI settings whether if you want more or less on the fly is a nice feature especially during the intensive battles during your game. If you need the extra boost or less depending on what your situation is the fact that you have all kinds of unique features on the mouse such as the precision name to lower the DPI during your snack. Your knees or easily able to program it to something else easily able to access the buttons off to the side just overall the performance of this message was fantastic.
I did however find a increased performance based on the mouse I used previously which was the still serious Diablo 3 edition now this mouse is something that’s meant for someone who has big hands so you know me and I tended to get uncomfortable with this one but ever since I switched to one that was a bit more smaller kind of that fit my needs and I was able to adjust to my hand specifically I found an increased performance by eighty five percent. Which is great you know because now I’m able to enjoy my games comfortably and enjoy the different features overall now what do I like and what do I math like about the product so far based on my use. There’s not one thing I can think of that I could dislike about it to be honest I mean if there were to add something maybe it’d be cool to kind of had some type of palm rest or you may be customized one get like a custom print like maybe your logo or maybe you’re in a client you want your clan logo printed on it I think that would be a cool feature to add like me something onto their website. It’s just an idea it’s not like a downside just you know upbeat your idea what do I like I like all the programming features the mouse in terms of build quality doesn’t feel cheaply made at all there’s some really nice weight to it.
And I don’t see this mouse breaking down anytime soon the programming features the customization I’m interested a ton of things I like about this product there’s not one thing I dislike about this at all but overall in the end I’m going to give the rat 7 a full five out of five now just do keep in mind the smells does retail for the price of one hundred dollars. My recommendation is that this something that does interest you but you don’t see yourself spending the one hundred dollars try to look online and try to find themselves going for some places are selling it for about seventy five dollars or less if you get it for that price for less than I say go for it but overall Indian.
