Introduction

I have seen only one other mouse from Genius thus far, when we looked at the DeathTaker, not too long ago. It was small, compact, was stylish, had plenty of buttons, and even offered a weighting system. While this mouse was designed with RTS and Role Playing games in mind, aside from the fact that it was just a little too small for my hand, it was a mouse that really made me take a second look at Genius and what they were bringing to the table in the peripherals market.

 

The mouse we will be looking at in-depth shortly is a different take on the design and layout all together. When Genius built the DeathTaker, they limited the market some to people who love a bunch of buttons, and of course for those who have small hands. This time around the coin was flipped and the new mouse is more about simplicity, while showing off just a little. In this latest entry, not only is the functionality simplified, this is also ambidextrous, and so it gives those "lefties" out there another option. I do wish I had a broader sampling of Genius mice, but with a laser sensor example out of the way with the DeathTaker, I am glad to see an optical offering for the second time around.

 

So, let's get down to it and explain why we are here today and why you should keep reading. For one, the looks of the mouse you are about to see is very well thought out, and does make for a great fit to both right and left handed users. This mouse also offers rubberized coatings, a unique LED lighting scheme and software that will allow you to do anything you wish with the mouse.

 

All of this is contained inside of the new Genius X-G510 gaming mouse, and I really think it is well worth a look, more specifically once you catch wind of the great pricing.
