Cheap, but expensive

Edward E., Newegg
22 April 2015
  • Summary: Where are the nice micro switches?
  • Pros: Lots of buttons. Good when it works...
  • Cons: The mouse double clicks often when user single clicks. This happened less than a year... this happens to my Logitec mice in 1-2 years but it happened to this in about 3 months of use.

awesome while it worked...

SEAN G., Newegg
7 February 2015
  • Summary: I've owned two gaming mice and it seems that a big trade off to purchasing a gaming mouse is that the delicate buttons break easily.
  • Pros: all of the programmable buttons and their locations are great. UI is also pretty good.
  • Cons: pretty soon after buying this the left index finger button had issues with double clicking and soon after this the scroll wheel when nuts and jitters when trying to scroll down.

Lack of Support

Nicholas M., Newegg
17 January 2015
  • Summary: I should have done my research on the company beforehand. You should never trust a company that doesn't have any kind of support page or portal.
  • Pros: The mouse is comfortable to use and seems to have a pretty high build quality. I really like the locations of all the additional buttons, which is why I purchased this mouse in the first place.
  • Cons: After a few months I started experiencing an issue where occasionally moving the mouse would cause the cursor to move in unexpected ways. For example, moving the mouse left and right would cause the cursor to lag slowly up and down. There is no damage to the cable that I am aware of, so since the...

User Review

Samuel L., Newegg
23 November 2014
  • Summary: My main concern was that this mouse would over-promise then turn out to be cheap junk, but it turned out to be quite impressive.
  • Pros: It looks great with its sharp angles and tri zone lighting. The ability to change the lighting color and pulsation effects is what sets this mouse apart from others. Six included weights allow for plenty of customization. The software allows for even more tweaking, with a large amount of options ...
  • Cons: I found that this mouse takes some time to get used to. With so many buttons, it's possibly to accidentally push one, especially the side button, though this not a major problem. The software is great in that it provides many options, though I wish these options were better explained in the help ...

Garbage

Jesse N., Newegg
12 November 2014
  • Summary: dont waste the money. find a better mouse or look into spending a little more money.
  • Pros: fit well and was nice to have programmable buttons to move what i wanted on the mouse and have it at my finger tips.
  • Cons: first one died after two weeks and would not work right or even light up. i got the second one and like 2 days after warranty it would not work properly and then like others the double left click started acting up like others. I tried taking it apart and fixing it that way but no luck. Just pure ...

Junk in a Pretty Box

Weldon N., Newegg
1 November 2014
  • Pros: Relatively comfortable for left handed use. Very accurate. Programmable buttons are a plus.
  • Cons: I am a lefty mouse user. The Gila seemed like a great idea at the time, even though I could have purchased a cordless mouse for less (even on sale), but I wanted the extra buttons. The first few months it worked adequately, but had I paid full price I would not have been the least bit impressed. ...

It had a good run

Gabriel R., Newegg
4 October 2014
  • Pros: This mouse is great; highly customizable and looks awesome.
  • Cons: Unfortunately, the double-click issue is all too true. After using it for over a year, it has begun to double-click on single clicks. It doesn't always happen but I have a feeling that with time, it will only get worse. It had a good run.

Ehhh...

Thomas R., Newegg
24 July 2014
  • Summary: I originally got this mouse for its button count. I really didn't need any of the other features. The mouse is capable of 8000 DPI, but 1200 is comfortable.
  • Pros: Lots of buttons. Can configure the extra buttons to keyboard keys.
  • Cons: Independent DPI for X and Y axes? Very poor design choice. Extra buttons are awkward to reach with long fingers. Cannot configure mouse with Windows 8.1 at the time of writing. Had to configure with a spare machine running Windows 7. Driver software is horrendous.

Christopher N., Newegg
5 July 2014
  • Pros: plenty of durable buttons without clutter I like the design, it fits my hand well responsive to input 1yr+ ownership, still working like new
  • Cons: the provided software is clunky, but it gets the job done nothing negative to say about the mouse itself

Good mouse but has a double click problem *FIX HERE*

Jonah M., Newegg
9 June 2014
  • Summary: You can find this by finding the Genius GX Gaming Mouse on the Genius website and go to the downloads tab and you will find it under applications. MAKE SURE YOU READ THE PROVIDED INSTRUCTIONS OR YOU COULD MESS UP YOUR MOUSE BADLY. Good luck and hope this helps
  • Pros: The accuracy of this mouse is absolutely impeccable. It is wonderfully designed and the software for it is amazing. Programmable macros for each button, weight adjustments, amazing DPI and sensitivity flexibility to meet the user. Over all very satisfied purchase
  • Cons: There is a really annoying double click bug that this mouse is infamous for. This easily brought the mouse down to a 3 or 2 egg mouse but there is a firmware update for the lights that also fixes this bug.
