Genius Gila GX Gaming Mouse Review

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.”
As you can see by the features and specifications listed below, the Genius Gila gaming mouse has a full complement of attributes. What we are all curious to find out is how beneficial these attributes are over the course of several days of both gaming and normal task use. I encourage you to keep reading in order to find out.
