We reviewed the Mad Catz Cyborg R.A.T 7 only a few months ago, at at the time there was only a product description of the RAT 9 to go on; it boasted the same impressive adaptable functionality of the R.A.T 7, but also included a surprising aspect for a gaming mouse; it is wireless.
Cyborg announced today that months after the original product announcement, they will finally be shipping the Cyborg R.A.T 9 mouse, and become the new – actually obtainable – premiere mouse of the series. The mouse uses a high performance 2.4GHz wireless signal that delivers and estimated latency of less than 1ms. The mouse includes two swappable lithium-ion battery packs, each to provide up to 9 hours of continuous gaming per charge, and are charged separately from the mouse so you never have any down time.
Its other features are the same as the R.A.T 7 including interchangeable palm rest, adjustable pinkie grips, and adjustable length, width and height, and 42g of removable weights. It also hosts a ‘twin eye’ 5600DPI gaming grade laser sensor and has the ability to store 4 individual DPI settings which can be instantly recalled via an integrated toggle switch.
The MSRP for the R.A.T. 9 is $149.99 and is currently shipping to retailer across North America.
