Usage & Final Thoughts
I have been using the Morpha X for a few weeks now and I do have to say it is a very comfortable mouse. It is designed as more of an ambidextrous mouse so you can actually use it in either hand. For me I prefer the 12000 dpi IR LED sensor, EG purple switches, and the gunmetal panels. While I actually like the way the white panels look, they have a glossy finish, which actually makes my grip not as secure. I have primarily been playing mostly FPS games with this mouse like Gears of War 4 and Battlefield 1. The mouse performs quite well and have the proper amount of buttons for games like that.
EpicGear definitely took their time designing this mouse. All of the modular parts work as they should and it is quite easy to swap out the switches or a sensor. You don’t even need to unplug the mouse to do so. This is one of the first times we’ve seen a mouse be this customizable, you can pretty much change our every part of the mouse. This allows you to choose the components that best suit your needs or gaming style.
EpicGear does provide customization software so you can program the different buttons and change the lighting on the mouse. While the software is easy to use, it does feel a little dated. I also was a little bummed out that while there are RGB LEDs on this mouse there are no special lighting effects or even zones you can setup.
At the end of the day I think that if you are actually going to make use of the modular aspect of this mouse it is a great choice and gives you the ability to have a single mouse for different games / game styles. Now this mouse is currently selling at our favorite online retailer for $89.99, which puts it at the higher end of gaming mice. But keep in mind you are getting two sensors, two sets of switches, and two different sets of panels. Overall ThinkComputers gives the EpicGear Morpha X Modular Gaming Mouse a 9 out of 10 score.
