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 mention it because the months after months of coding had an effect on me, one of which was a physical one in the form of carpal tunnel syndrome.

I still love using computers, but the discomfort makes things difficult at times, and using a mouse is a hit-and-miss thing, depending on the shape and comfort. Gaming mice are geared towards, well, gamers, not people with physical issues. But that’s not to say that a gaming mouse can’t be a benefit in those circumstances, so today’s review of the MadCatz Cyborg R.A.T. 7 and M.M.O gaming mice are presented with that in mind. So we’ll look at the usual aspect of gaming rodents, but we’ll also address the particular perspective that I bring to this review, looking for something just a bit more out of the ordinary.

And out of the ordinary is certainly what these mice look to bring. The R.A.T. 7 and M.M.O look unlike any other mouse on the market, and Cyborg is certainly an appropriate name. While they look very unique and unusual, they do have some great features, not the least of which is adjustability, which can be a huge benefit to anyone, particularly those with physical issues in their hands or wrists.

So let’s take a look at these gaming mice today and see what can set them apart.

Mad Catz develops and markets accessories for videogame systems and PCs under its Mad Catz (casual gaming), Saitek (simulation), Cyborg (pro gaming), Eclipse (home and office) and TRITTON (gaming audio) brands. Mad Catz distributes its products through most of the leading retailers offering interactive entertainment products and has offices in North America, Europe and Asia.




    Just so you all know, it’s not Jake having the discomforts, It was written with a OLD mans hands on these. I’m still using the M.M.O. 7 and other than bumping a button when I go to grab it I’m still comfortable using it.


    A nice post, thank you from a huge games addict!!.
