According to the chart above that I found at Genius' website, they start off with a part number. It then states that The X-G510 will work with Windows since XP, and you will need one available USB port on the computer you wish to use it on. Genius then covers the DPI range from 500 to 2000 in 500 DPI jumps. There are a total of six buttons on this mouse, it offers hyper speed scroll, and the chart also shows that there is a UI, or software for the mouse. Under the chart you will find a listing of the system requirements, but to shorten that up, let's just say if your PC was bought after 2005, you are good to go.

 

In reality you are dealing with an all black mouse comprised of two outer shells. The bottom shell contains the PCB, Omron switches and three light duty switches around it for the left side button, the right side button and the DPI on-the-fly button. You also have rubberized sides to the X-G510 that goes along with the rubberized scroll wheel. Where the palm would sit on the mouse, Genius has made a design that appears smoky white when the mouse is not powered, but once power is supplied, the lightning like design illuminates and can pulse with the glow of blue LED light. The last of the technical aspects I should cover is the optical sensor used. Inside of the X-G510 you will find an Avago ADNS 3090 that offers 2000 DPI as stated, 20g acceleration and 6400 FPS tracking.

 

This mouse was just announced at the end of April to the public, and that may explain why I cannot locate this mouse in either the US or EU markets. That being said, with its news release, Genius laid out the price for everyone to see. This ambidextrous optical gaming mouse will only set you back a mere $30.

 

So, all we have to do now is put the X-G510 from Genius through a week or two of use and see just how well it performs. Find out how it went over the next few pages.
