RAT9 mouse for a programmer - anyone use one?

First I'm not a gamer. Second there are definitely more sensibly priced mice out there. Third I just love the look of this ridiculous device

So, I'm considering one on the premise that I can probably program the buttons for common Visual studio shortcuts. Does anyone here use one? Or a predecessor?

Again, I know it's a rather indulgent sort of a purchase and a bit hard for me to justify :P

I have one, but I don't do any programming, so I'm not sure man.

You check the Saitek forums?

Not yet.

Are the buttons simply programmable for standard shirt cut keys like ctrl+w, p and things?

Do you like it, would you buy it again?

I do like it - the dual removable batteries are a big plus in my book. One charges while you use the other.

However, this is probably more mouse than I really need as I don't even use the programmable functions. lol I do love the way it feels and it's responsiveness.

I would buy again.

The comfort that the R.A.T.7 and 9 offer are a main selling point. The fact that I can tailor my mouse specifically to my hand has made a huge difference for me.

As for program-ability of the buttons, I'm not positive, but the extra buttons you can customize using the software for the mouse. Not sure how in depth you can make the macros, I haven't messed with it too much.
