    The GX1000 uses PTFE feet to literally glide across nearly all surfaces, while adjustable click-in weights allow gamers to tune mouse heft to their gaming style. Four levels of dpi switching and LED indicators (red, orange, green, black) give customers the ability to instantaneously switch and verify mouse resolutions from 50dpi to an impressive 8200dpi. Six programmable macros and special gaming features such as response speed settings can be easily accessed and customized from within the intuitive user interface, helping gamers set up profile preferences with just a few clicks. The GX1000 comes bundled with its very own custom high quality ROG mouse pad, presenting a genuine top-tier gaming mouse designed to meet the demands of even the most dedicated PC enthusiasts.

    Imbued with the spirit of ROG

    Following extensive testing and trials, the ROG design team succeeded in crafting an industry-leading gaming mouse. With its sleek yet tough brushed aluminum finish and premium coating, the GX1000 embodies the built-to-last ROG gaming creed. Its ROG logo lights up in four colors, which can be defined by users and assigned to different profiles. Using advanced technology and distinct ROG styling, the GX1000 ushers a new phase in premium gaming control excellence.

    I'm starting to appreciate higher DPI mice since I run a fairly high resolution monitor, so this is a welcome addition to the market. I just hope they didn't use brushed aluminum for the body like the images indicate.

    Their mouse says "REPUBLIC OF GAMER" while everything else is "REPUBLIC OF GAMERS"...

    I like the aesthetics of this mouse.
    But since it's ROG, and has brushed steel components, it will probably be something pricey.

    My hand hurts looking at it.
    The best part about that is its has the correct "Gamers" moniker on the mouse pad.

    Maybe they only anticipate 1 buyer for this mouse, thus 'republic of gamer'.

    I see lots of mice being made with a pointed ridge going along the middle of the mouse...Surely that's uncomfortable?

    That aside, I wish people tried to design mice as mice, instead of trying to emulate sports cars.

    The lines are pretty much the same, so are some of the parts. I didn't say they copy-pasted it but the similarities are vast.

    Clearly they used stolen Cylon technology.

    They are quite similar though, doesn't seem to be just a copy and brand kind of thing.

    No it's not a rebranded mouse, i was just talking about the many similarities...And considering it got released just a few months after the Hellion perhaps that's not a coincidence.

    This looks like a steamy pile of dung with respectable abilities. Wish they had gone with something less angular for a mouse... oh well any way to rope in the 14 year old gamers with fat momma-pappa wallets.

    Waiting to see the price; I suspect it's going to be a bit high carrying the ROG moniker.

    Just bought a Corsair M90 - 15 buttons and a lovely feeling for £50 - difficult to beat IMO.
