Completely out of the blue we received an email to have a look at a new mouse that has hit the market over the pond, but has yet to release in the States. Looking at the press release information in the email, I was intrigued to say the least to have an up close and personal look at what this new company was bringing forth.
Let me start by introducing you to Epic Gear. From what I can gather, it looks like the company just started at the end of last year and is now in the position to offer products in masses to the public. In reality they are a part of a much larger organization, Golden Empire International Limited, or as we know them GeIL, the memory company. If you were to go and check out their page on the web, you would find that I am about to show you the only two products that Epic Gear are currently offering. On that same site you can also see that they have a keyboard on the way soon and for those on the go, a bag to tote your laptop in.
Back to the products on hand, this mouse offers something that has likely been thought of to some extent, but is something I have never seen. This product uses a plethora of technology built into the mouse to deliver every user a mouse that will suit their needs. By using an ARM processor to do all of the thinking and transmitting, the mouse in combination with the 128KB of onboard memory can be programmed for macros, various profiles and the ability to switch out three sensor modes. That's right; with this mouse you can either use the optical sensor, the laser sensor or a combination of them using Hybrid Dual Sensor technology (HDST).
Along with the Meduza HDST gaming mouse I have been describing, Epic Gear also sent along a Hybrid Pad for HDST in the box. This will allow me to get the most out of the mouse by what is said on the Epic Gear website. Now that I have had ample time to play around at desktop level and in various games, it is time to show you what I found. Hold on tight as I try to cover what all is included with the Meduza HDST gaming mouse and accompanying Hybrid Pad because I think Epic Gear is a new company with very cool ideas and will definitely be a threat to the current market!
