Genius X-G510 Optical Gaming Mouse Review

Genius went with a red and black packaging with the image of a dragon and its potential slayer to place the image of the X-G510 upon. Along with a reflective sticker at the top of the box, near the bottom is shows the X-G510 name and the tag line of "Gaming with an Attitude."




Two Velcro pads hold the front cover on the box and behind it you will find this. On the left is the software, shown in the three screens with explanations of each one and what can be done. The right side of the packaging has a stylized rectangular opening to view the X-G510 behind the clear plastic.




On this thin side of the packaging you again have the red and black packaging with light blue accents to match the front. The information found here is much of what I explained in their specs chart, but they also show some of the features of the sensor here.




The back offers an image of the mouse at the top with eight features pointed out in that image. Genius cover things like the cable, rubberized surfaces, 21 potential Macro keys, the precision engine or optical sensor onboard, as well as many others. The middle has three features shown in 26 languages, and they cover its universal game design, adjustable DPI and its ambidextrous nature.




The last side of the packaging shows that there are Omron switches on board, but these are the eight million click kind. The mouse has 30 grams of weighting built into it, the cable is 1.8 meters long and is braided on the outside, and you have a 1ms or 1000Hz polling rate option.




Inside of the cardboard, you get a dual piece plastic tray system that is very structurally sound and will reinforce the cardboard very well. Between both trays you will gain access to the X-G510 with the cord tucked under the red cardboard insert. The paperwork and driver disc are shipped under the trays.
