Good specs and pricing, and have had good luck with APC products previously. Appears to be working OK. A few problems: (1) User manual needs improvement: refers to software available online, but APC does not provide software for Mac OS X; (2) User manual has sometimes confusing terminology, needs editing by an inexperienced user; (3) cannot plug my disk drive transformer into either backup outlet directly - one is too close to the master outlet, and the other is too close to the power cord - I had to use a cube tap to space the transformer away from the chassis.
I am very impressed with this mouse. I was a bit nervous about the cord slowing me down, but I haven't noticed it affecting my game play at all. I really enjoy the feel of the plastic. It is that kind of soft, rubbery feeling but without any elasticity. This texture combined with the the wide base and shape of the mouse, I can easily drag it across my work space without having to hold on to it at all. Not to mention how smooth it glides across the desk (i do not use a mouse pad) is like someone coated it in butter. In my evaluation of other mice (mouses?) I have found that when pushing the scroll wheel button, the scroll will continues to spin. I have never had this problem with the RAT. No matter where on the wheel I push, there no rotational movement what so ever. All five programmable buttons are great. I particularly enjoy the thumb scroll. Personal, I have a profile set up for Starcraft II and spawning Drones has never been easier. The thumb scroll is perfect for spam actions and scroll through item menus in RPGs and shooter. The software that comes along with the mouse is great, easy to use, and allows you to experiment with the precision button. I really like how you can adjust the speed the mouse moves according to which axis it is traveling (X vs Y). I have only ever messed around with that function, never actually using different speed in game play or everyday life. I imagine it could be useful for HUGE widescreens but who knows? The precision button is great in game for aiming in shooters but I have used i most for photo editing and computer generated artwork. You can slow the bpi waaay down just in case you need to draw a line exactly 7 (or any arbitrary number) pixels, the button makes that easy. The weights in the mouse are great. I like the heavy set up. The weights can be added or removed very easily but taking off the big nut in the back. The extendable palm rest is nice but if you move it out too far, you cannot put too much weight on it before it starts to lever up off the desk surface. Overall, I love this mouse.
Product arrived quickly and works great, terminal ends fit very secure into female receivers on pc and router, cable was very flexible and easy to route. Great value overall! Just wasn't quite as pictured which is a "big thing" for me because I rely heavily on photo details when considering an online purchase.(I'm referring to the terminal ends looking quite different than what was pictured although they work great and I'll never see them anyway.)
