Installation, Testing and More

Installation:

Installation was a snap for the Genius Gila. All I had to do was plug it in and install the driver. Once installed it was a matter of configuring everything to my preference. 

 

Testing:

I definitely tested the performance aspect of the Genius. I used this for close to three months rigorously putting it through its paces. I play a few different games, graphic editing, and 3D modeling and I found the Gila performed well. I definitely made use of the macro functions for a new space SIM I've been playing. There were some complicated flight procedures I was able to program in that made routine functions a snap.

Three months of mercilessly pounding this mouse with ARMA 3 has definitely put the Gila to the test. It relies heavily on multiple mouse functions with keyboard modifiers and the Gila doesn’t even bat an eye.

Genius Gila Profile

 

Conclusion:

All being said, the Genius Gila performed well. It really shines when it comes to functionality. The Gila looks good and performed flawlessly regardless of how rigorously I used it.

It is a great mouse and I would recommend it to anyone enjoys having a lot of functionality right at their fingertips. At ~82$ (from TigerDirect) this would be a decent buy. Solid gaming mice like the Gila, rarely sells for much less. 

 

Pros:

  • Profiles allow up to 72 custom key assignments
  • Nice looks
  • Solid ergonomic design
  • Many sensitivity options

 

Cons:

  • None

 

I'd like to thank Genius for sending this mouse our way to review. Although they don't have the brand recognition of other companies, the truth is that this is a very solid mouse that is capable of long hours and months of gaming. Take a look and see why we gave it our Gold award.
