Comparing this mouse to one of the offerings from Roccat, if you had to choose... which vendor would it be?

All is fair in love and war... just don't cry about it when either of them frags you.

Good point and I don't know how long these non-brand name mice will last. Although, brand names mice have been also know to fail as well.

True. My Razer Death Adder died without reason one day under normal to light use despite them having a pretty good reputation for quality in general. Thankfully, it was still under warranty and was replaced at no cost to me by Razer. I was a bit upset given the circumstances and ended up getting some emails back from the actual president of their company. I NEVER expected that. It's what won me over and has kept me buying their stuff: Death Adder 3500, Black Widow Ultimate keyboard, and a Nostromo gamepad.

There's no telling how long something is going to last. I've seen supposedly high quality stuff last but a fraction of time when compared to a far cheaper and supposedly lower quality product.

Genius have been around for a while now and is actually a brand. I only know them to produce cheap products.
But this mouse look good.

Rodney do the weights really work or are they a gimmick?

Thank for the review.

Weights work great and not a gimmick. The use of weights in mice have been around for quite a while. I personally like a fairly heavy mouse, so six 4.5g weights for me.

It looks pretty cool, but I dont think it needs to have so many buttons

Well, it is a pro gaming mouse, so 12 buttons, 72 macros & 6 profiles will come in handy. The buttons are well organized and don't get in the way.

How does this mouse compete vs the Thermaltake eSPORTS Level 10 M in your opinion?

Certainly on par when it comes to performance, just different designs. I really like the feel of this mouse over the Tt though and it's more comfortable in my hand. That could be just my hand size though. The Tt Level 10 is still a sweet mouse :) If it were my money, I'd probably go with the Gila because overall. Although, for innovation the Tt 10 wins hands down.
