Xenon 800 is a new, flagship gaming mouse from Genesis. Take a quick look at its features and you might think that company's accountants took a long vacation during the development process. An ultralight construction, weight system, high fidelity sensor, and Japanese Omron switches - all of this is available for a shockingly low price.

Genesis Xenon 800 will surely disrupt the gaming equipment landscape. The device's perforated, matte case weighs only 58 g. This makes it one of the lightest gaming mice available. If, however, for whatever reason the device's feel is not to your liking, you can swap it for a traditional panel included in the set. So you always have a choice.

If the Genesis Xenon 800 is too light or you prefer another weight, the designers got you covered. The set includes a system of 12 weights, which allow the users to add around 20 g to the weight as well as properly distribute the mass. Inside the Xenon 800 you will find Japanese Omron switches with durability of 20 million clicks.

The device tracks the player's movement with the use of the PixArt PMW3389 with 16000 DPI. The latter feature can be changed to seven configuration levels with a press of a button. The Lift-off Distance can also be configured as the manufacturer provides the users with three predefined settings. The mouse is equipped with eight programmable buttons which can be configured with non-standard functions or macros with the use of included software.

Preferences can be saved in profiles in the built-in memory, which will surely be used by users who tend to swap their machines often. The designers also remembered about customization options. The Genesis Xenon 800 device includes configurable RGB illumination with PRISMO effect. The whole set is completed with teflon sliders which provide the users with fluidity of movement as well as a textile braided cable. Genesis Xenon 800 will be available for around €50.

I had a mouse from Genesis. Cheap, nice, but buggy. I used it for a couple of months until it pissed me of so much that I just went and bought a g203 prodigy. This looks much better. I hope it is.

5 years from now these waffle mice are going to be looked on as the Crocks of mice.
And useless as they will fill with skin tissue, oils and dust.

No optical or swappable mechanical switches, no buy. Even 50 dollars (is that supposed to be "budget" for gaming mice these days?) are too much for garbage omron switches that will start double clicking within the year.
