As a PC gamer, your mouse is your key instrument in defeated the hordes of undead, outmatching your opponent in a duel or mastering the mystic arts.
So does the R.A.T. PRO S3 help you to do all of these extremely important tasks well?
My simple answer is yes, but there are some caveats to think about.
The mouse itself has customisable buttons, feels light in the hand, has a good DPI, which means it’s extremely accurate and also some fancy RGB lighting!
The software enables many changes, such as macros, adjustable resolution, lift-off height, as well as profiles for easy mass changes to the overall function of the mouse for different genres of games.
One thing you do have to get used to, or atleast I did, is the shape of the mouse, it’s a little unconventional for your typical mouse, having a scarab-esque cutout style with minimal body but enough for a satisfying grip.
It also has a palm rest that is adjustable in length for preferred grip and hand size.
I’ve used this for a solid week and I have to say, I really like it, it’s most definitely a contender in it’s price range and will be a large step above your basic mouse for gaming or any macro intensive applications.
So if you are after a gaming powerhouse with RGB lighting, great build quality and a stylish physique, the R.A.T. PRO S3 is for you.
