The Mad Catz M.M.O.TE (Tournament Edition) Gaming mouse is Mad Catz latest 2017 gaming mouse and replaces the M.M.O.7 gaming mouse which whilst i have never used, know many gamers that love their Mad Catz gaming mouses to the point where they don't use anything else even if they're not gaming and simply messing around the internet.
We love the fact that its so customizable, however it does take some time to set up and get used to all the different buttons and programmable options especially when you combine your gaming mouse with your gaming keyboard. Our only complaint is that its a bit expensive.
The Mad Catz M.M.O.7 Gaming Mouse is probably they most flexible gaming mouse on the planet right now and comes allowing you to fully customize both the external feel on the mouse and how it performs to include amazing macros and the ability to fully program the buttons to suit any MMO programmability to support any MMO.
Build Quality is fantastic given the gaming mouse comes with a metal superstructure which is then surrounded by hard plastic. The design of the Mad Catz mouse is that of flexibility which allows you to change its shape to suit your gaming style. Every part of the gaming mouse can me adjusted to suit your needs, whether it be from the thumb and palm to the pinkie finger rest to button positions.
Palm or Claw
No matter whether you want a “palm shaped mouse” or a “Claw”shape, the Mad Catz has got them both covered and in addition to the Thumb Panel which can move both forwards and backwards to provide a comfortable platform for every user no matter how big or small you hands are meaning that all buttons and switches are easily accessible. The gaming mouse comes with 15 programmable buttons, a 3-position mode switch and a 2-position mode button which allows for the gamer to assign 90 programmable commands to suit any game on the market and any type of play that you choose.
With regard to the buttons, M1 and M2 have excellent response and feel and are therefore very easy to use, M3 is the scroll wheel click and provides great feed-back and momentum to the user, whilst M4 and M5 are the two edge thumb buttons which need some getting used to, however are perfectly place and very easy to use. The rest of the buttons need to be configured through the software that comes with the mouse, however this process is very easy to set up. The 5-way button is awesome and best of all, all 5 presses are completely customizable. Below this button is a DPI button which allows you to toggle between low and high DPI with four settings that can be adjust during game-play.
Weight is always the gamer choice and often decides between a good review and a bad review however the Mad Catz coming fully customization by adding or subtracting one of the five 6-gram weights the gamer can easily change the weight to suit their personal style.
Performance is truly amazing thanks you a 6400 DPI ‘Twin-Eye’ Laser Sensor with 4 Custom Settings that reads each axis separately and tracks up to a stunning six meters per second. Sensitivity is also completely controllable both in-game and through the set up software meaning that gamer who prefer a low sensitivity but with a high movement speed can achieve this easily.
Problem's, none are deal killers, but I would like to see a few of these implemented with the latest ranges. First up, there is no wireless option which doesn't matter for true gamers, it would be a nice addition for those who want to use this mouse for gaming and non-gaming.
The bigger problem, the software is really difficult to use simply because you have so many options to choose from. Personally we found the only way to get the settings correct and not make a mess of the whole process was to check out the forums for other gamers settings and then adjust from there. The good news, once you've played around with the settings for a few days, you soon get used to it.
Personally I hate the lights, there are only 4 on the whole unit and I really have no idea what they do as they do not seem to tell me anything. I wish the lights changed color with different DPI settings for example.
Finally, I don't much like any of the three palm rests that you get with the mouse. Personally I think the grippy palm rest is the best, however all three are pretty terrible.
Overall, its a decent mouse. It has a few problem and personal I can think of other mice I would be buying, but if you want a fully customizable mouse, there is no better than the Mad Cutz.
