Hands-On Modularity:

EpicGear claims this is a simple to use, modular mouse and in the video below we show how simple and quick it is to change pretty much everything on this mouse.

 

Testing:

I installed this mouse about a week prior to a major LAN event that BCCHardware sponsors. If I was a super serious gamer, that could be virutal suicide as moving to a different mouse can really through your game off. Once I removed the weights, setup the laser sensor (and optical as a backup), created and applied a few macros, customized the buttons, I found it quite easy to adapt to the minor changes in game. When it comes to computer games, I set the mouse sensitivity in-game to "1" and then make all the changes in hardware. This way once I match the sensitivity on the new mouse with the old one, it's relatively easy to change mice without major issues.

I changed quite a bit of the software to suite my needs, but all-in-all, you can import button assignments to different profiles very easily so it doesn't take that long. Once setup was accomplished I jumped into and played a bunch of FPS games including Unreal Tournament (Pre-Alpha), Call of Duty 4, Battlefield 4, Star Wars: Battlefront and more. 

I played some old-school RTS - Supreme Commander as well as Company of Heroes. I also played Heroes of the Storm, League of Legends and Diablo III, I put it through as many different situations ranging from twitch gaming to fast clicking action in League. The macro setup allowed me to repeat some complicated maneuvers with ease - time and time again.

I hammered away on this mouse for a week before the LAN getting used to it so I didn't disgrace myself during tournaments. At the LAN it ran from 10:00am until 2:00am daily and performed like an absolute champ.

Conclusion:

Gaming mice in North America are usually limited to Razer, SteelSeries, Logitech and a few others, but companies like EpicGear have been making in-roads and they certainly offer a great product. This mouse performed exactly as it should and it did it day in and day out. It is very functional, not too large, has adjustable weights and a great braided cord.

In terms of physical hardware changes, you can pick from a great laser sensor or an even-better IR LED sensor. Once you've got those figured out, you can swap left and right mouse button switches and you are good for at least 70 million clicks. It's a great feature to have and it eliminates SKUs for EpicGear to try and market. You get everything you need and more and while it's not a budget priced mouse, you are getting a lot for the price.

I have no issues recommending this mouse to anyone that wants the best of everything when it comes to sensors, switches, colors and customization. The MorphaX has what it takes to impress and perform.

 

Pros:

  • 5 Profiles per sensor & 4 Sensitivity settings per profile = 20 per sensor
  • Excellent looks
  • Easily customizable
  • High quality sensors and switches
  • Simple and powerful software
  • RGB lighting

 

Cons:

  • None

 

I'd like to thank EpicGear for sending us this mouse to review. Although they don't have the brand recognition in North America that other companies do, the truth is that this is a great mouse that is capable of long hours and months of gaming. Take a look and see why we give it a solid "Gold" award.
