RAT 7 Discoloration after 1 day
I just got a RAT 7 mouse and after 1 day of maybe 3 hours of use I see discoloration on the left/right mouse

buttons and the DPI button. Has anyone else had this? I don't have greasy hands and they are pretty dry all

the time. I don't see what could damage it so fast.

Is already damaged???? if that RAT 7 is already damaged, it doesn't worth 80$, for sure, unless you let the mouse exposed to the sun

I would talk to the Manufacturer right away , might just be a bad finish on one.
I don't think any mouse should discolour that fast.

Xbas - Even UV wouldn't do that in 1day.

Been using a Rat 7 for the better part of 6 months now and I don't have a single issue. And I have VERY greasy palms.

Around here, one of the game cafes uses exclusively Rat 7 mice and they still look pretty good even after 24 / 7 use by multiple individuals.

I got mine about a week ago and I think it's pretty good. I gamed with it for only 2 nights though. As opposed to what someone else said, tracking was very precise and consistent. The lack of tilt scroll wheel got the best of me and I went back to my G500 as well. I know there is a thumb wheel, but that's not what I need for gaming. I need my tilt scroll wheel, that's just the way it is.

The RAT7 is now my work mouse.
Anyhow... did anyone get the thumb wheel to scroll sideways in IE or any other apps?

Well I returned the RAT 7 after my hand starting hurting. The comfort was horrible. The tracking on two

different surface soft/hard was questionable also. I ended up getting the G9X and WOW!!! I've never seen

a mouse with such great precision and comfort.
