Genesis Xenon 800 Mouse Review, an ultralight gaming mouse with high quality yet at an affordable price that simply blew us away.

With 3 major gamers in the house all running different setups and constant disagreements on who has the best equipment and peripherals from Razer to MSI, we finally found something we agree on and its this mouse. Let me explain.

Design

Genesis Xenon 800

The Xenon 800 is a honeycomb design with interchangeable cover to solid or keep the honeycomb design. it is designed for the right-hand play taking into account the arrangement of the fingers to make sure that you have all the comfort needed for hours of gameplay.

The mouse comes with a weight tray to increase the overall feel so that the mouse setup to how you like it in a 3 bears style, not too heavy, not to light but just right.

Practicality

So we know how it looks and feels but the important thing is how does it play.

The Xenon 800 is probably one of the smoothest glides that I have come across for example I lined it up against my DeathAdder Elite and did a push test, where the DeathAdder got halfway across the desk the Xenon 800 went the distance, this in itself shows that in-game your movement is going to be smooth and quick.

The next test was I gave the mouse to a couple of teenagers to test over the course of the weekend to use on Call of Duty, CSGO and Minecraft and they loved it

CSGO the tester got an ACE in the first 2 games of playing and was blown away by how easy the programmable buttons work and the glide of the mouse, and since then has dumped his Steelseries mouse.

My daughter who is a big Minecraft fan and player loved how easy it was to plug and play and said that she found it ultra-smooth and responsive whilst playing.

I personally found that once I had weighted the mouse I found it enjoyable playing games like Sniper Ghost Warrior and movement had no restrictions, pinpoint moves to be able to lock on for those snipes however I did after a while put the hard case on as I found the honeycomb was slightly uncomfortable after a long period.
