Genius today announces the Gila professional gaming mouse, a 2013 CES Innovations Award Honoree, to the North American market. Offering unparalleled precision and comfort, the Genius GX Gaming Series Gila is the ultimate configurable gaming mouse. With the 12-button Gila almost every aspect can be tweaked according to gamers' preferences: on-the-fly dpi changes, weight, LED brightness, pulsation and color as well as macros for a personalized playing style.

Precision Control with Sniper Mode and On-The-Fly Adjustable Dpi: 200 to 8200
The Gila packs features for gamers that need to excel. For situations that require pixel perfect precision "Sniper Mode" slows down mouse movements to a dpi of your choice by simply holding down the assigned button.



Genius' GX Gaming Series Gila lets gamers switch among 5 different previously assigned dpi levels directly from the mouse for precision targeting (200 dpi) to lightning fast movements (8200 dpi). Adding Gila's 1 ms response time to aid in situations that require quick twitch reactions, this GX Series mouse is capable of keeping up with any gaming scenario.

Personalized Weight Tuning
Customize the weight of the Gila however you prefer. A maximum of six 4.5 gram weights can be added to a compartment in the underside for sturdiness or no weights can be used at all for unburdened lightweight movement.

Unique LED Customization Options
Offering unique aesthetic customization options, the Gila has three LED backlights that can be independently tuned to the colors, degrees of brightness and pulsation style of your choice. With 16 million color options to choose from your Gila will be uniquely yours.

Macros & Button Assignments
Simplify the complicated controls of modern games by assigning them to any of the twelve buttons on the Gila. The Scorpion UI lets you set up to 72 macros, giving you a competitive edge in the heat of battle. The macros saved on the on-board memory and CPU of the Gila means that macro-blocks in games won't be able to stop you from using your macros. At LAN parties or competitions no time is lost tweaking exactly how you like to play.

Comfortable Grip & Connectivity
The Genius Gila not only gives you personalized control when hunting down your foes, but also provides a smooth, stable connection with a comfortable design. The non-slick rubber coating ensures a firm and comfortable grip when moving the mouse violently back and forth. Additionally, the 1.8 meter durable braided cable with an anti-corrosive gold-plated USB jack ensures long-lasting, high quality connections.

Availability
The GX Gaming Series Gila is now available in the US and Canada for the suggested retail price of US$99.99.

Product Highlights
  • Professional 12-button MMO/RTS gaming mouse
  • Adjustable dpi with 5 step dpi gauge
  • Independently adjustable LED backlighting in 3 areas (16 million color options)
  • Adjustable metal weights 4.5g x 6 with storage case included
  • Capacity for 72 macros
  • On-board memory and CPU to beat macro-blocks
  • Lightning fast 1 ms response time
  • Comfy rubber finish grip for complete control and handling

Being Spanish the world's second language, I don't understand why they don't check names before launching a product name. Remember the Kulo? (ass)

Well, Gila is (was) maybe the most famous Spanish TV comedian for decades... so maybe this mouse is orientated towards "funny games"! :)

I was able to play about 10 minutes of BF3 with one of these at their booth at CES, and I have to say it had a nice feel to it and I liked the customizable weight.

All that 8200 dpi nobody is gonna use. Sweet. I've seen better weight management systems in other mice as well, not sure i like the rear plastic panel triangle weight thing going on. Looks abominable and yet probably quite good at what it's designed to do.
What sensor is in these? I'm hoping not the dubious ones with acceleration problems.

Gotta be shitting me... over the last 4-5 years i have had 4 RAZER mice break on all with the same issue the classic double click and what i still using my second razer keyboard which all broke just before or just after their 1 year warranty.

Although don't get me wrong Steelseries might be heading same way as one of theirs failed too and then replaced it with a different mouse which up to now has been good.

Screw Razer they suck with their crappy clips on their keyboards and soft'n'cheap plastic they use on mice...

Aesthetically Razer are the most appealing to me.
Durability and performance Logitech.

I have used my Copperhead since it came out. However one of the microswitches broke eventually. I just replaced both of them with a pair of Omron micro switches, and that was like over 2 years ago. Strange thing is, my Boomslang has never failed me once.

But the mouse on this picture, from the front it looks like a Lambo.

Yes they are nice looking but i buy for comfort, durability and performance not for looks.. Although being left handed cuts out having a Logitech mouse as a option for my gaming needs..

Good for a poster in a kids room but owning one is a pain. but what makes you think it's a bad mouse due to looks ?, as a lot of us use mice differently.

Disgusting appearance.
they are weights, just like weights are included for most if not every Logitech gaming mouse to aid customisation/personalisation

Ive only got 3.5g(s) of weights in my mouse. couldnt stand it being any heavier.

On a more serious note - this Genius mouse looks closely like a knock off of some Roccat gaming mouses.

Disgusting appearance.
your taste, not generality

I find this appearance disgusting.
corrected:D

well the look might not suits all tastes, but we still have a "multi-button-customizable-weight-with-a-agressive-look" mouse that make the R.A.T. serie or the "copycat" Ouroboros from razer look like puppies (i own a R.A.T. 7 actually, aside of a G600)

this mouse seems comfortable and not so crappy for a Genius product (well Genius isnt what we can call a crappy brand but ... ah whatever)

On a more serious note - this Genius mouse looks closely like a knock off of some Roccat gaming mouses.
well i dont see any roccat mouse having a look at that point agressive (comment about R.A.T. and Ouroboros being Puppies look apply to Roccat mices if they have any looking "mean" xD)
maybe the light pattern... ahah :D

All that 8200 dpi nobody is gonna use. What sensor is in these? I'm hoping not the dubious ones with acceleration problems.
Avago ADNS 9800 i presume like the G600 ... since the price of that Gila is near launching price of the G600, wich means pretty good sensor

well other spec says it use the SG Core II Engine to overclock the DPI the Sensor has a name .... :Scorpion Laser (hum well after seeing this ...) accel 30g it seems, so it might be a cheap-but not so bad sensor
actually i've seen it use a Arm Cortex-m0 32bit microcontroller from NXP wich isnt so bad, but Except for the "Scorpion laser" name, nothing more on the sensor... i have a bad feeling about that one :twitch:

and for the "who use 8200dpi" question well im on 2950dpi on my G600 but i have a profile at 8200 for some reason i dont remember ... but its pretty funny when i hit accidentaly the G8 button
