Genius GX Maurus X Gaming Mouse Review

Genius GX Maurus X Gaming Mouse Review

Genius, a PC peripheral manufacturer that released several successful products in 2013, has created what they are touting to be a stylish FPS/RTS gaming mouse in North America. The Maurus X features a large, ergonomic form factor, customizable lighting and a quick-change DPI button. The mouse is larger and heavier than the previous incarnation of the Maurus series, designed for maximum comfort. With an MSRP of just $49.90 the Genius GX Maurus X Gaming Mouse is a rather inexpensive device that offers features and performance normally reserved for mice at a higher price point.


Whether it was the time of day or an unlucky Internet connection, simply plugging the Maurus X into a laptop running Windows 7 was not enough to get it installed. The automatic installation process where Windows fetches the drivers simply hung for over seven minutes without resolving itself. Instead, the mouse was unplugged and the included software was installed first, with the mouse being plugged into a USB port after with success. At worst, it’s a minor nuisance and gamers should just remember to install the disc first. Total installation time was approximately 11 minutes.

The key features for gaming mice are the response time, DPI settings, number of buttons and cost. The Genius GX Maurus X Gaming Mouse features a 1ms response time, meaning players will not see any lag time when playing. There are five DPI settings, ranging from 800, 1600, 2400, 3200 and 4000. There are six buttons on the mouse, one of which is used for adjusting the DPI on the fly. The cord is a 5.9-foot braided cable with a gold-plated USB connector. The unit, as mentioned before, runs at an affordable $49.90.


Adult gamers with medium to large sized hands will appreciate the large form-factor design and ergonomic shape. Sessions with the mouse went by without hand aches or incident, proving that it can be used regularly for games. In terms of comfort, it falls behind some of the premium mice on the market as the right side of the mouse for a right-handed player doesn’t slope downwards, a concession for making the mouse more inclined towards an ambidextrous design.


The included software allows players to customize their mouse and create various profiles which can be started up before particular games are played. The DPI switch works as expected and the sensitivity of the mouse lived up to expectations.

The sensor of the mouse works fine on a perfect mouse mat. However, there were some problems working on more worn mousepads and surfaces. Given the price point, the accuracy of the laser sensor seems about right but will not be confused with some premium gaming mice found from the competition.

The Genius software allows gamers to customize their mouse settings and create profiles/macros.

In terms of overall performance, this is a solid gaming mouse that performs very well for both FPS and RTS games. While playing both Battlefield 4 and StarCraft II, the mouse performed well and some of the custom profile macros behaved as expected. In terms of pure performance – discarding the price point momentarily – the Maurus X is a good mouse that an average gamer would consider to be decent. In terms of comparing it to other mice at its price point, it might still be behind the likes of the SteelSeries Sensei, but it might be appealing over that device because of the bigger form-factor and greater weight. It’s really up to gamers and what feels most comfortable to them.

Overall Impressions

The Genius GX Maurus X Gaming Mouse is a very solid mouse and recommended to gamers who prefer to have a larger-sized, heavier mouse. For those gamers that want a combination of lightweight design and super premium accuracy, this might not be the mouse for you. So at the end of the day, gamers should get what fits them best. For the demographic of gamers this mouse aims to please, it does an incredible job offering solid performance and comfort at a really reasonable price.

Gaming Illustrated RATING



This will be very simple for gamers. If you want a larger sized, heavier mouse, you will like the Maurus X. If you want a smaller sized, lightweight mouse, you will find it burdensome.


The sensitivity of the mouse was very solid, and the accuracy of the laser sensor was just fine on great surfaces, but occasionally struggled when the surface was sub-optimal. Just be sure to use a nice mousemat or mousepad and you'll be fine.


The unit retails for just under $50 which looks like a solid deal compared to other mice at this price point.
