Full Disclosure: The product sample used in this article has been provided by Genius.

It is a very difficult task for designers to develop a gaming mouse that will rise above the competition. The gaming mouse market is saturated, after all. We have established developers that have been building gaming mice for years, such as Logitech, Razor, SteelSeries, and MadCatz, and, we have developers that were later entries into the market, but have been able to make some headway. Now we have Genius, and even though it has been around for years developing PC peripherals, its decision to enter the gaming peripheral market under the GX Gaming brand didn't come to fruition until 2011. Since then, Genius has made a number of solid entries into the marketplace, and it hopes its latest entry, the Genius Gila gaming mouse, can be the one that earns it the proverbial "seat at the table."

Amazon has these mice for $67.44.
That seems reasonable if it performs as stated.
A reviewer at Newegg complained about "buggy software."
I'd buy it from Amazon since they have a very liberal return policy, which is why I buy most such items from them.
The only reason I'd buy elsewhere is because they may not happen to carry what I want at the moment.
