Introduction
Hardware Secrets Silver Award

Just like other computer peripheral makers, Genius has a special brand for gaming-grade products with more advanced features. The company releases the DeathTaker mouse geared towards the MMORPG/RTS crowd – that is to say, its main feature is recording macros. The DeathTaker reaches 5,700 dpi of resolution, and it features nine configurable buttons (eight regular buttons plus the scroll wheel itself) and an ingenious weight adjustment system. We’ll analyze its performance after we describe the product.

The DeathTaker is a medium-size mouse for right-handed users that strays from the more sleek style found on similar products on the market. The design has an industrial flair with a pinch of car tuning thrown in. If the user would prefer a more discreet mouse, the DeathTaker is not a good option. It has three different coatings: a rubberized surface on the thumb rest; a black piano coating all over the main body (including the two main buttons); and a glossy surface with the GX Gaming tagline and scorpion logo, over the weight adjustment compartment.

There’s a silver detail (with the GX Gaming name on it) that encompasses the two lateral buttons, and three other silver buttons: the X, Y and macro buttons. A tiny red button marked D changes the resolution setting. The colorful design is complete with the scroll wheel that features an illuminated strip running down the middle.
