Is RAT Series Mouse Really Good?

The RAT is a nice-looking mouse, but as for real functionality, it's lack luster.

I would recommend the following instead:

Mad Catz MOUS 9 Wireless Mouse

This is their new one. Beautiful.

Cyborg MOUS 9 wireless mouse
“Mad Catz MOUS 9 Wireless Mouse for PC, Mac, and Mobile Devices” amazon

Not very good reviews on amazon. The DPI cannot be adjusted. The Bluetooth doesn't seems to work on the Mac.
