I currently have R.A.T 9

I've had it for 2 years now and the first year it was a great mouse, but now it's unbearable piece of sh*t.
It keeps locking on X-axis, keeps getting disconnected, mouse wheel doesn't work properly and battery lasts like 12 hours

Anyways I'm looking for a new mouse (wireless) between 90-130$, any suggestions?

I found a mouse called Logitech G700s, does any one of you have it? If yes, is it worth it?

Thanks!

I don't have the Logitech G700s, but I do have the Logitech G700.

Been using it for about a year or so and so far it works great. When it was new, battery at full charge USB set at 500r/s (reports per second) and profile set at Productivity mode, average use 5-6 hours, it battery last about 5 days.

At full charge, USB at 1,000r/s, still at Productivity mode, it just last about 1 day.

Right now I have it plugged in at all times, even at 500r/s since it can't even last a full day. I'm assuming the supplied Sanyo Eneloop battery can't hold its charge anymore. Still haven't got new rechargable battery for it. From what I've heard it can only use rechargable batteries. The mouse use a standard 1x rechargable AA battery.

 

Picking a mouse is based on personal preference, I personally like my G700 because it has 13 programmable buttons and supports up to 5 built in profiles. The 13 programmable buttons can be assigned to do a specific task, where it can also be link to each individual profiles that has been set.

Example: Profile #1 : Gaming-all 13 programmable buttons are set for gaming use. Profle #2: Entertainment- the 13 programmable buttons are set for entertainment use, and so forth.

The Logitech G700 uses Avago 9500 laser sensor capable of up to 5,700CPI (lots of them will say DPI). The X and Y axis can be adjusted indepently from each other, which give users a greater level of control. It's placed at the front center, which some say is better for gaming, compared to mice that has their sensors place towards 1 side. It also has dual mode scroll wheel- the standard click and hyper scroll, that can be useful when viewing long documents or webpages.

The mouse can be used wireless and when the battery is being charged, it can also be used as a wired mouse.

The Logitech G700s is basically the same as the G700 only with a new look and a updated sensor, up to 8,200DPI.

It's a disspointment none of their gamging mice uses their DarkField Technology, if they did, that would be the best mouse.

DarkField lets users use their mouse almost on any surface like carpet, wood, granite, glass (4mm thick), etc. It's similar to Microsoft's BlueTrack which can also do the same thing except for use on glass.

Microsoft has a gaming mouse that uses BlueTrack.

If you could get a decent price go for that one.  Logitech make good wireless mice. I've got a fairly old one from about 2005 and it works just fine, like new.

Thanks for the response! I was about to buy a Razer Mamba or G700s, but my friends and some other people have complained about Razer quality, so I'm going with the Logitech :)
I had Logitech MX before the R.A.T and it was a great mouse while it lasted, but the R.A.T.... it just sucks

G700s it is, mod can now lock this thread

Before the conversation ends - I just want to mention that I reckon bluetooth is the way to go if you've got a receiver. Half the reason I use wireless is to avoid plugging something in, FFS.

I already got the G700s and don't regret it at all, battery life is just enough and no input lag at all.
Best mouse ever :D
