Gaming mice have been changing over the past few years, no longer is having adjustable DPI enough to satisfy gamers, they want to be able to modify the X and Y axis independently and want huge amounts of programmable buttons.  The Gila from Genius is capable of both, indeed it can have 72 different mappings for the 10 buttons thanks to the 32K of onboard storage.  The MSRP is $65, if that is within your budget head over to Hi Tech Reviews to see their opinion of the mouse.

I use a Logitech M500 (wired) which is comfortable, however I still find it a little too small. The Logitech Performance MX (wireless) feels slightly better, but don't own one to really give any pro and cons.

The title says "monster". Does it mean that it has a lot of features or that it's large in size, but comfortable as well? Shape wise, how does it compete with the Logitech M500/MX?

Thanks :)

Or, you know ...

With all those extra buttons and weights inside I would guess it would be noticeably larger.  Since it is ambidextrous it might not feel as customized, you'd need to get your hands on it.
