EPICGEAR ZORA IR LED Gaming Mouse Review (Page 4)

Inside the Zora




Inside the top half of the Zora, we find a steel weight is permanently added to give this its 110-gram weight. On the right, in the lower half of the build, we find a multi-layer PCB design with plenty of LEDs and switches to discuss.





Under the left click button, we find it backed with an Omron D2FC-F-7N. Not just the standard five million click versions either, these are rated for double that with the (10M) identifier at the end of the model number.




The pair of left side buttons are mounted on the top PCB layer, and both are found to be white Kailh switches. Rather than to make long pins on the top to make the profile and DPI buttons work, Epicgear chose raised pad-style black switches to use for those.




Flipping the mouse 180 degrees, we found the Sino Wealth SH68F88P, which is tough to find information on. We did, however, find out that this is an 8-bit MCU, and should be more than capable of driving this mouse.




We did have to remove the top layer of PCB to grab this image, but right there plain as day is an Avago ADNS A3050 optical sensor.




The interesting thing we found here is that not only is the right button backed with an Omron of the ten million click flavor, but the switch found under the scroll wheel is also the same Omron switch.




By default, ahead of any software installation, the Zora powers on with a red glow from all of the lighted sections. The DPI indicators on top, the "eG" logo and the Zora name will always remain red. The scroll wheel can be changed as needed, and has default colors set to denote which of the five profiles is currently active, and red is the default for profile one.
