Genius Gila Gaming Mouse Detailed Features

You will find a compartment located on the bottom of the Genius Gila gaming mouse, which contains the adjustable weighting system. The piece that holds the weights is removable, making the addition or subtraction of weights much easier. Each of the six weights is 4.5 grams.

The weights come in a hard-plastic case with a foam insert. The Genius Gila gaming mouse felt as if it was the correct weight for me right out of the box, so I (obviously) didn't add any additional weight. You may find this mouse to be heavier than average for a mouse that maintains an adjustable weighting system.

One of the most obvious features in the image below is the "headlights." The color of these lights is adjustable, and we'll discuss the lighting in further detail a bit later. The scroll wheel, which is also visible in this image, maintains the garden variety click-to-click scrolling. The feature missing from the middle mouse button is the tilt click. Many of us have come to rely upon the tilt click, yet it was not included on the Genius Gila gaming mouse.

On the bottom of the mouse, there are three separate Teflon pads. I tested the Genius Gila gaming mouse on some basic mouse pads, as well as the full-scale Razer Goliathus Speed Edition. Initially, it did not seem to glide that well over any surface. However, after about two days of use, it was gliding just fine. Apparently, there was a bit of a break-in period. And then, there is the off-centered laser. For some gamers out there, this is a deal-breaker. I personally never had a problem no matter where the laser is located. I guess I just don't pivot at the wrist like some of you do.

Becoming pretty standard in terms of signifying the quality and attention to detail when it comes to gaming mice is the braided cord and the gold-plated USB connector. Does the Genius Gila have these features? Check.

Now that we know what the mouse looks like and are familiar with the features and specifications of the Genius Gila gaming mouse, it's time to move on and discuss the drivers....

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.
