Cyborg MMO7 Pro Gaming Mouse [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

The MMO7 comes from a long-ling of professional gaming mice (the R.A.T. series) and feels every bit as good as its predacessors. The only problem with the mouse, for the general gaming public, is the ridiculous amount of buttons and commands on the thing. 30 is the most I've ever heard anyone 'need' and this is more than double that.

The Pros: 

+Fully customizable, allowing gamers to get exactly the feel they want.

+Included software and accessories mean getting a ton of options out of the box.

+Downloadable (or custom) software means getting to maximize your mouse's potential without a whole lot of heavy-lifting. 

+The new 'lock' feature is something I wouldn't have thought I needed, but now have a hard time living without.

The Cons: 

-78 programmable commands seems a little overkill.

-The locations for the mouse's 13 buttons are a little odd, and take, at minimum, some getting used to.

I have always been someone that has been pretty picky about my computer accessories. Mice need to have the right shape, appropriate clicking sound, smooth action and correct weight to them. So, traditionally it’s been a bit of a challenge to get a mouse that has everything… There have been options along the way that hit two or three of the sweet-spots and were deemed “good enough,” that’s why the concept of the Cyborg R.A.T.

Mad Catz Pro Circuit Controller (Xbox 360)

Overall Feeling: 

The customizability of the controller is simply unprecedented. No controller has been able to offer as much customization as this one, providing the opportunity for gamers to have a truly personalized gaming experience. While the controller itself comes with multiple options out of the box, there's sure to be plenty of more options down the road for additional stick designs, d-pads and especially aesthetic changes with the magnetic faceplates, available to consumers online (and in store) as the controller evolves.

The Pros: 

+Unparalleled options for customization.

+Tournament ready wired controller design for zero latency.

+Multiple options for customizing the controller within the box. 

+Snazzy little travel-case that makes storing/carrying the controller simple.

The Cons: 

-Corded controllers might be an issue for the casual gamer (though the name itself implies this isn't really for them anyways).

-The locking mechanism for the cord at the top of the controller is long enough that it feels awkward and causes some issues with the overall balance of the controller.

Ever since the release of the Fightstick Pro, three years ago, Mad Catz has built up their company from one that produced bargain controllers for consoles, to one that represents top-tier gear for modern consoles and professional level gaming. The Fightsticks has become all but standardized in the realm of professional-level fighting games/tournaments, and to expand on that success Mad Catz has now partnered up with the MLG (Major League Gaming) to produce a series of fully customizable controllers for both the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3.
