  • EpicGear Morpha X Modular Gaming Mouse Review



    With the wide range of gaming peripherals on the market it can be difficult to find the product that is right for you and how you want to work.  For instance gaming keyboards are often defined by their keyswitch and classified by features.  Mice are a little different in that there is no clear defining feature.  Some users buy them based on the sensor used while others find the shape to be the most important.  For me it is a draw between shape and weight, I loathe lightweight mice and prefer a more contoured feel given my tendency to do the finger squeeze over claw and palm grips.

    What if you could tweak and tune your mouse to fit your style instead of the other way around?  In this review I’ll be looking at the Morpha X Modular Gaming Mouse from EpicGear.  In the same spirit of the EpicGear Defiant keyboard the Morpha X features a modular design allowing you to modify the mouse to fit your particular style.

    Much like with the EpicGear Defiant gaming keyboard the Morpha X features two new and exciting features including swappable switches and swappable image sensors between a traditional IR sensor to a high resolution laser sensor.  The other features are not unique to any particular gaming mouse and help compliment what EpicGear has created.
