    Taiwan-based Genius may not be a well known brand when compared with other established companies such as Steelseries and Razer, but they have been around for a long time. They were credited for shipping the first mouse with a scroll-wheel, and currently manufacture products for other brand-name companies. The GX Gaming series is their first stab at entering the gaming peripherals market under their own brand. Benchmark Reviews has on its hands the Genius DeathTaker MMO/RTS gaming mouse. We will be testing this premium 9-button, weight-adjustable gaming mouse to see whether this late-comer can take the spotlight.

    The GX gaming series in general sports flashy designs and bright lighting. Scorpion is their series logo. The products includes mice, mouse surfaces, keyboards, and audio peripherals. It's interesting that Genius specifically adds MMO/RTS into the DeathTaker description. What they really mean is a fully configurable 9-button mouse suitable for storing macros.


    This mouse will be hitting North American shelves soon with an MSRP of $79.90. Substantially late to the party, most macro-capable gaming mice all have similar functionality by now. At this point most companies are competing on design, usability, and quality. Can Genius pull their own gaming brand off and get a good start in North American markets? Benchmark Reviews will be diving into the details of the Genius DeathTaker.
