MadCatz Cyborg MMO 7

RH Numbers
RH Editor's Choice

The most expensive mouse in this review sure looks like it's worth my hard earned currency, super cool packaging and unique design are always going to catch my attention. Inside the box there's more goodies in the form of a mini spares kit, so I can customise constituent hardware parts for comfort. The Allen key, that is actually part of the mouse, allows me to add my pinkie and textured palm rest. The DPI knocker below the scroll wheel took me up to an impressive 6400 DPI. A pre-configured MMO profile pack made casting spells a breeze – I categorically owned at PVP.

Retrieving the dedicated WoW add-on left me chuffed when I saw it only had 128 other downloads. My guess is that I should have a pretty good advantage over the other 29 million WoW players then. I am not a fan of the orange used to highlight the new features on the MMO 7 but have to admit it does co-ordinate well with some of my WoW Cataclysm goodies.

MadCatz Cyborg R.A.T 7 – the Albino

RH Numbers

It is not often you see a white gaming mouse and it certainly grabs your attention. The Albino has the same unique customisable construction of the MMO7 and the same impressive 6400dpi. But unlike the MMO7, it has a precision aim button for sniping that allows you to slow down for pin point targeting. It was hard to get used to, but worth persevering with as it increased my accuracy by at least 10 per cent.

The second scroll wheel for my thumb not only looks great but was really useful for scrolling through weapons. Downloadable profiles or specific games are really useful to save time programming yourself. Where this mouse gets let down for the price is the software, which, unlike Roccat's Kone [+], doesn't come close to being as customisable as the mouse itself.
