Back in the day, long before modern GUIs and help-assist programs, I used to write code. Hundreds of thousands of lines of code. The old fashioned way. It was an arduous process, and it was most definitely repetitive. That's ancient history, but I...

Not one person who looked at the Cyborg R.A.T. 7 gaming mouse while it was in my possession did so without making some kind of exclamation or comparison. There were expletives, comparisons to the Batmobile, and those who called it a Transformer. All...

To many computer users the mouse is just a necessary little tool for operating their computer. As long as it has two buttons and a wheel and the cursor goes where it's supposed to, most people are satisfied. Gamers are more demanding, however, in terms...

The Mad Catz Cyborg M.M.O. 7 gaming mouse has tons of buttons and programmable features, but they tend to get in the way of each other....

I've said it earlier, but I'll say it again here - this is the most unique mouse in both style and customization available on the market to date. There's a good chance you've already made up your mind as to whether or not you want one - probably just...

Cyborg's R.A.T. 7 is craziness embodied, and we love it. Customisable to the teeth, it's only let down by a slightly unpolished software suite. It is an otherwise fantastic mouse; its unique features ensuring that it earns our...

An eye-catching mouse with plenty of customisation options, but it’s expensive and we found its design a little gimmicky...

The R.A.T. 7 is certainly a superior product, but the extra price has to be factored into the buying decision. Many people will never (or can’t) spend close to £80 on a mouse so for less than half the price you can get the entry level model with the same Gigeresque eye catching design and class leading...

The R.A.T. series of mice has raised a few eyebrows with its odd shape, but it wasn’t until we saw the R.A.T. 7 – the most extravagant of the range – that we understood why it looks so odd. The surface is split into four areas, with three of...

When I find something that fits just right, I tend to stick with it. With running shoes, it's New Balance's 1060, whose model number has reliably ticked up once a year since I started wearing them. After five years, I'm now onto the 1064. For jeans, I...

When testing the markets best mouse units it is very hard to come to a conclusion about which one is the best one of the bunch especially since the best for me and the other guys might as well be the worst for you. That was mainly the...

The first Cyborg mouse we looked at, over two years ago, was quite well received despite the irrelevance of the motorised adjustable length. Despite this pointless gimmick it was a functional, multi-buttoned rodent, though not in the same class as the...

Nothing completes a badass system more than the Cyborg R.A.T. 7 gaming mouse. This piece of hardware is not a gimick even in the slightest sense. Some gamers may not like the looks of this futuristic mouse, but its versatility and high quality...

Using the Cyborg R.A.T. 7 was an interesting experience. The innovation that was conjured to produce this device is tremendously impressive. However, like any product brought to our attention, the final recommendation lies with the overall impression...

The peripheral marketplace isn’t something that has seen much innovation over the years but Cyborg Gaming is looking to change that with their R.A.T series of gaming mice. They are adjustable beyond our wildest dreams but does this feature alone make...

The R.A.T. series of mice isn't designed to be subtle. The surface of each model is broken, split, and in many cases adjustable. While it looks like a hot mess in pictures, all it takes is putting your hands on one to understand the method to the...

Mad Catz really has created a monster with their R.A.T. 7 gaming mouse! Its combination of custom fit coupled with a bevy of software and hardware features really does make extended gaming sessions even more enjoyable. Even better was the fact that it...

It can be sort of hard to review gaming mice. Problem is, all the major brands pretty much have it down—they make mice with excellent sensors, responsive hardware, and a set of feature that’s rapidly becoming an industry standard. They might have a...

The setup process for the M.M.O. 7 is very straight forward and installing the drivers and smart technology configuration software only took a few minutes. The configuration software is very well laid out and makes changing settings on the M.M.O. 7 a...
