Genius Gila GX Review


Genius hasn't defeated Razer, Logitech, and other enthusiast favorites, but it can stand beside them.

8200 DPI sensor ; Solid build quality ; Useful driver software ; Good value

Difficult button placement ; Ergonomics could be better

A mouse is an item that may be used for hours at a time, so it should be smooth, comfortable, and easy to handle. The Gila proved a bit too harsh and heavy to win over our palms.

Genius Gila GX Gaming Mouse


Sleek design, 12-buttons easy to access, 1000Hz polling rate, 200-8200 DPI range, 72 macros / 6 profiles, 32KB of on-board storage for macros

Priced as high-end wired gaming mouse, may make your hand sweat, little separation between adjacent buttons

The best description I can give regarding the Genius Gila gaming mouse is that it resembles a sports car, and not just because it has what appears to be headlights and taillights. The shape in conjunction with red-on-black paint job make it look like...

Genius Gila GX Series Gaming Mouse Review


Strikingly slick, feature-packed, and pricy, Genius's Gila can do more than RTS and MMO games. It's a comfortable gaming mouse that isn't held back by its design.

Cheap, but expensive


Where are the nice micro switches?

Lots of buttons. Good when it works

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...


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.

all of the programmable buttons and their locations are great. UI is also pretty good

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


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.

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

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...

Junk in a Pretty Box


Relatively comfortable for left handed use. Very accurate. Programmable buttons are a plus

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...

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.

Lots of buttons ; Can configure the extra buttons to keyboard keys

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...

worth the price and reliable


plenty of durable buttons without clutter ; I like the design, it fits my hand well ; responsive to input ; 1yr+ ownership, still working like new

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*


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...

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...

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
