Mad Catz R.A.T TE Gaming Mouse Review


[section_title title=”Conclusion”]Conclusion

So, does the TE live up to the claims of being the perfect tournament weapon? Time for my thoughts after playing a good 10 hours of CSGO with it.


Starting with aesthetics and the R.A.T TE is, I’m sure, no less polarizing in this form then it ever has been before. With that said as a previous R.A.T skeptic I really like the looks of the TE, the matte finish is most welcome compared to its glossy siblings and the black and blue contrast just works in my opinion. The futuristic shape is appealing to me, the angular design means it looks interesting from any angle and it certainly stands out in a crowd of traditional designs.

Moving on to performance and the TE does not disappoint. The tracking is simply flawless and the┬áplentiful customization options allowed me to tweak the mouse ‘just so’. The mouse one and two buttons should be commended on their own too, the feedback from them is fantastic and the weighting is ideal.

Finally, is the TE good value? I would say so yes, compared to the rest of the R.A.T range the stripped out TE seems to be the clear favourite in terms of bang for buck. In the scheme of things also for high end mice I would say the price is very reasonable given the performance, and whilst you can get good mice for less I feel the price is well justified here considering all the performance and features on offer.

This mouse is truly not one to be missed by FPS players, it walks away comfortably with an Editor’s Choice award.
