EpicGear Morpha X Modular Gaming Mouse
Fresh out of the tin, the left side of the Morpha X is a mix of gray plastic used on the top of the mouse, while the entire left side is designed with a rubberized section of tiny round pads for grip. In easy reach, between the two sections, are a pair of buttons, which are textured, but are not rubberized.
The heel of the mouse is covered with the gray plastic cover, but there is black visible on both sides, and the logo seen there is illuminated when powered. Where we see the EpicGear name at the bottom, which is the back edge of the EGC and will also be illuminated when in use.
The right side of the Morpha X is nearly identical to the left side, but there are no buttons here for ambidextrous usage. We do, however, see more of the rubberized surfacing along the side, which makes lifting the Morpha X quite easy to do.
The front of the mouse is blunt, as the switches and the lower section of the frame come together. We can also see that the cable is permanently attached to it, and it emanates from the center of the Morpha X with a bit of strain relief added before the braided cable extends away from it.
On top of the Morpha X, we find a white scroll wheel with a rubber center section which increases grip on the segmented movement of it. Behind the wheel, we see a profile switching button, and behind that is a DPI selector switch along with four LED lights denoting which level is currently in use.
The cable extending from the Morpha X is six feet in length and has cloth braid wrapped around the standard wiring inside of it. The connection is molded in a unique shape and has the EG logo on it, and as to the connection, it is gold plated to fight corrosion.
Under the Morpha X, we see a large single foot at the fr5ont of it, and a pair of much smaller feet at the back. The product sticker is shifted to the front so that the cartridge can easily slide in and out, and in said cartridge, we can see the eye of the sensor is centered in the mouse.
We did have to remove the heel cover, but in doing so, we gain access to the adjustable weight system. Just in front of the LED that makes the logo on the heel cover glow, we can see a set of four weights with the EG logo on each as well as their 5g weight indication.
Once the heel cover is removed, you can also remove the front cover, which grants access to the main switches of the Morpha X. Installed from the factory, we find the pair of orange Omron switches with white plungers in place.
To remove the main switches, grab the switch-puller and install it from front to back on either switch. You can hear the tabs on the puller click once it is slid down far enough, and at this point, you gently pull upwards, and the pins on the switches will slide out of the connection points on the PCB inside.
We also went ahead at this time and removed the optical sensor cartridge to have a look at how that all works. There is a pair of tabs, one to either side of the gap, which aligns the ESC and allows it to plug into the 14-pin connection at the front of the mouse.
