Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The specifications chart for the Gila is a bit on the generic side and doesn't really flow all that well, but here goes my attempt at covering it. It starts off with the factory part number that won't allow users to find anything via Google, and then jumps right to the six 4.5 gram additional weights that are shipped with this mouse. It then covers that this works on XP, Vista, and Windows 7, and jumps into the gaming target of MMO and RTS gamers. It goes into the 16 million color choices, speaks of the gold plated USB 2.0 connection, covers the 72 Macro capabilities, and shows the DPI scale set from 200 to 8200. It then jumps back to the lighting showing that the scroll wheel and logo illuminate, but no mention of the head or tail lights, and lastly covers the 12 buttons found on the outside.
What this list doesn't cover are things like the use of the Avago ADNS9800 laser sensor, the fact that there is an SG Core II engine that controls the 12,000 FPS frame rate, 30G's of acceleration, 150 IPS velocity, the 1-5mm LOD, or the fact that this mouse has a sleep mode. It also doesn't cover the fact that there is 32KB of onboard memory to allow users to load six profiles and up to 72 Macros per profile, and take them with you even if you aren't connecting the Gila to your own PC. It also doesn't cover the fact that the Gila comes with Angle Snapping to try to smooth out jittery user movements into smooth tracking of enemies on the battlefield. The last thing not covered with a mention is the size. It has increased over the Death Taker to a larger 114mm long, a narrower 72mm wide and a bit higher 44mm tall with the Gila.
Looking around for the GX Gaming Gila MMO/RTS proved to be a bit of a challenge, and I thought I was relegated to just copying the MSRP from all the news posts from the release. With a bit deeper of a dig, I was able to locate this mouse at Amazon for $99.99. For starters, that is a lot to ask for a mouse, but on paper, the Gila does offer the "best" laser sensor on the market if you can control that sort of DPI. It also has some really nice software to aid in your personalization and customization, but does that make it worth almost $100?
Stick with me as we take a close look at the aesthetics, tear it open to see the components, and give the Gila a good test to see if I can answer that very question.
