5.0 out of 5 stars The New R.A.T. 7
Reviewed in Canada on 12 September 2019
My last two mice were both R.A.T. 7 variants, the original and later Contagion.
Both served me well through their years of use, with the Contagion holding up for at least 7 years and now showing a fair bit of wear.
I liked them so much, it was only natural for me to want another after my Contagion's clicker finally started failing.

At first glance, the 8-Plus just a 7 with RGB, cause it basically is. It also has 2.5x the dpi of the Contagion.
Quality wise, it looks to be similar quality but feels only marginally cheaper.
It also comes with only 3 weights instead of 5 and doesn't even include the weight cartridge or accessory case.

In actual use though, it feels very similar to my old Contagion.
On board profiles are definitely a nice change over having to run the app and manually activate my profile every boot, now you only have to launch the profile manager when you want to change something.
But that 16000dpi... I found it completely unusable to the point it was hilarious. I'll stick with 5000 for desktop use with reduced in-game settings.

If you like the old R.A.T. 7, this is as close as you'll get without finding old stock.
We'll see how it holds up, but for now it's certainly a competitor for my favourite mouse.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap design
Reviewed in Canada on 29 May 2020
Horrible design flaw here. Light weight, but it doesn't come with the ring weights like the old mice did to add that extra heaviness to the feel. It's really not ergonomic on the hand. I get crapped up after half hour use while gaming. Speaking of gaming. It's ok, but it can be better. Precision can use a bit of work even after upping the setting. It's made of really cheap plastic and I feel I'm going to break this after a months worth and might have to get a new one. My old Rat MMO 7 lasted me 4 yrs. This is not even the same mouse. Buy it if you're looking for a cheaper version of a so called gaming mouse with limited programmable buttons.
