Really unfortunate that you would build a premium mouse, for such a high price, then cheap out on the material used in order to save 5 cents. If you can get your hands on the original R.A.T. 8 model for the same price, do it.
Subjectively, the grip on the old mouse is about 4x higher. Tested by pressing down and rubbing finger back/forth repeatedly.
Both served me well through their years of use, with the Contagion holding up for at least 7 years and now showing a fair bit of wear.
I liked them so much, it was only natural for me to want another after my Contagion's clicker finally started failing.
At first glance, the 8-Plus just a 7 with RGB, cause it basically is. It also has 2.5x the dpi of the Contagion.
Quality wise, it looks to be similar quality but feels only marginally cheaper.
It also comes with only 3 weights instead of 5 and doesn't even include the weight cartridge or accessory case.
In actual use though, it feels very similar to my old Contagion.
On board profiles are definitely a nice change over having to run the app and manually activate my profile every boot, now you only have to launch the profile manager when you want to change something.
But that 16000dpi... I found it completely unusable to the point it was hilarious. I'll stick with 5000 for desktop use with reduced in-game settings.
If you like the old R.A.T. 7, this is as close as you'll get without finding old stock.
We'll see how it holds up, but for now it's certainly a competitor for my favourite mouse.
PROS: El diseño ergonómico, personalizable, fácil de instalar, software x64 y x86,
CONTRAS: Algunas piezas que antes eran de metal ahora son de plástico, incluye solo 3 (antes eran 5) compensadores de peso adicionales,
I've always found that I can't reach the the forward thumb button on almost every mouse, so I hoped that would be different for this mouse. Thanks to its customization, I can reach it very comfortably. I'm about 5'7" and it's safe to say that smaller people would even be able to reach the button.
I love the palm support with the tallest option (there are 3 palm rests included). I also was surprised how nice the left and right clicks feel. The button doesn't "float" over the switch; there isn't a noticeable press before hitting the switch and clicking down. That said, the click isn't lose nor tight.
Overall, I'm incredibly impressed. I wish I had tried Mad Catz sooner.
I tried to use the main thumb button as ctrl (for ctrl+q, ctrl+alt, ...ect) and it doesn’t work at all
Tried to use a different thumb button as “M” to open an in-game menu, and I have to press it anywhere from 1 to 5 times before it works.
Super nice otherwise, but the buttons not working is annoying.
Also, the button changing interface is a little wack, but manageable.
I don’t know the longevity in the long run but it seems fairly sturdy and should last...
Can't contact the company - keep getting a Send Failure. Kinda sketch, I have to say. Might want to stay away from this if you need for anything more than simple browsing.
