5 out of 5 eggsFavorite Gaming Mouse

Pros: I have been using this Mouse for 26 Months now without a glitch. I purchased on 11/6/2013. I game Heavily. I felt I should update this review, because I still can't believe how much I like this mouse. The rest of the review is over a year old. It is 01/20/2016 today.

Button Placement, Weight, Feel. I have tried 4 different gaming mice recently and this one works the best for me. I think how I handle a mouse is called a Claw grip. Because my Index finger and my middle finger can work 9 buttons and the scroll effectively and my thumb only needs to work 2 buttons. Its perfect for how I grip a mouse. The rest of its features seems pretty standard across all gaming mice these days. It does have the ability to change its weight, but I just put all the weight into it.

Cons: I would probably add more weight to it if I could. But I have big hands.

Other Thoughts: Favorite Mouse so far - what else can I say.

5 out of 5 eggsOne of my favourite gaming mice

Pros: - Weight options, it has multiple weights and the mouse is quite light without them, and with them is decently heavy for the mouse size. I favour towards medium-heavy and liked this mouse.

- Button layout, probably my favourite button layout across almost all mice I've seen or used. Allows a lot of easy to access buttons with a lot of customization potential.

- The Software, there are a lot of customization options making it quick and easy to set up profiles that fit your exact needs. I have 3 for different game types, 1 for general functions like volume+/-, play/stop, and such. One programmed to copy/paste/enter/open tab.
- Colour customization, fits almost any rig colours and personally, I use it to know which profile I'm on
- Grip, rubber coated sides with a friction coating over the main body, it's easy to get a good grip
- Click response, the buttons all have a good click feel to them that is light, but distinct. They don't take a lot of force, but you know when you've clicked them and it would be hard to click them by accident.
- Pretty durable, I've spilled a drink on it, dropped it a few times, and have transported it a fair bit. After a year of heavy usage, gaming, and mild abuse, it's only now having double click issues. The mouse is also easy to open up for the tech-savvy type who can do general fixes.

Cons: - Ergonomics, although I've been using this mouse for a year, I never fully adjusted to the physical design. It was definitely designed for a specific grip type, favouring claw, and small to medium hands.
- Button layout, even though it is a pro, to me the buttons feel a bit too far back, furthering the fact that it's innately a claw design.

- LEDs, while they do look good, they aren't the strongest and most non-major colours have a slight off-tint. If you're very picky about that, you may want to look elsewhere, but otherwise it's not a big deal.

Other Thoughts: I find it to be a good general-use mouse from browsing, to music, to gaming. I liked it for RTS, MOBA, and MMO for having a lot of programmable buttons in easy to reach places. It might not be the best for FPS unless you favour claw-grip.
I honestly bought it for button placement and was all around impressed by this mouse. I think it's underrated and goes ignored due to Razer's popularity.

1 out of 5 eggsCheap, but expensive

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.

Other Thoughts: Where are the nice micro switches?

2 out of 5 eggsawesome while it worked...

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.

Other Thoughts: 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.

1 out of 5 eggsLack of Support

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 mouse is less than a year old I decided to try to contact Genius support to see if they knew what might be causing the issue and whether or not a fix or replacement would be covered in the standard manufacturer's warranty. Genius does not have a support site like every other manufacturer of electronics; instead all they have is an email address. For all of North America. And considering that I emailed them a full week ago, I'm starting to wonder if anyone even checks it. This will be the last product I buy from Genius.

Other Thoughts: 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.

5 out of 5 eggs

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 as well. My favorite, aside from the colors, is the ability to set your own dpi levels, making it easier to find the right level.

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 section. I still find some options confusing, like the fact that there are about five different ways to alter the sensitivity.

Other Thoughts: 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.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage

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 garbage.

Other Thoughts: dont waste the money. find a better mouse or look into spending a little more money.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk in a Pretty Box

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. After about six months the left mouse button started double clicking. And the scroll would occasionally move farther than rolled. At first wrote it off as user error, but as time passed the problems got worse. Now the mouse is well out of manufacturer warranty (which by the way is completely nonexistent as they do not accept defect returns) and may as well be used as a fishing weight or small game dead-fall counter. It saddens me that the USA allows more and more companies to import sub-standard items at inflated prices in fancy boxes who have no intention of standing behind their product. Should you choose to purchase this product get the extended warranty, you're gonna need it.

3 out of 5 eggsIt had a good run

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.

3 out of 5 eggsEhhh...

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.

Other Thoughts: 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.
