Genius DeathTaker MMO/RTS Gaming Laser Mouse

The left side of the DeathTaker is a mix of the rubberized coating on the curved area for your thumb, the piano black at the front and the matte silver section holding the page forward and back buttons.

The heel of the DeathTaker has an awkward looking pointed edge that runs along the removable weight cover, but it doesn't seem to affect the feel of this mouse. Other than that it has a high center and an almost egg shape to this end of the mouse.

The right side is a mix again of the piano black plastic above the rubberized coating at the bottom to allow your pinky to grip as you lift this mouse during use. In a slightly odd place is the Macro up/down selector switches. Of course you need the software installed first, but we will get to that later.

At the front, the right click button sticks out past the left, both with that rubberized coating to give the best feel en even the sweatiest of gaming sessions. The scroll wheel between them has a very solid feel to each "œclick" of the wheel as not to overshoot the selections in games. The shiny center strip is where this will light up when it gets powered on.

The right side of the heel of the mouse, with the grey scorpion painted on it, is actually the cover for the removable weight system I will show in a bit, but does have the tag line "œPro Gaming STYLE" printed there as well.

Moving in closer for a better look at the front top section of the mouse, you can now see there is an X and a Y button on the left. Behind the scroll wheel is the DPI selector button with an LED bar to indicate which of the five settings it is currently on. Lastly there is the GX Gaming on the silver section that will also light up with whatever custom color you choose.

Under the DeathTaker, Genius uses only two PTFE feet to glide this mouse on. There is a smaller foot at the front that comes back into the mouse just a bit on each side and the much larger J-shaped foot at the back to give both an easy glide, but keep the mouse stable and level at the same time.

To connect the DeathTaker to you computer, you use the gold plated, high speed, two meter, braided cable and plug it into the rear I/O panel. This cable does offer a fair bit of length and it doesn't seem to snag on the edge of my cloth mat.
