EpicGear Morpha X Modular Gaming Mouse Review (Page 2)

Packaging, Accessories, and Documentation


The EpicGear Morpha X arrives in a metal case, which is highly stylized and right out of the gate delivers a high-end feel to the product. Most of the top of it has a brushed metal paint job applied to it, where we see an image of the Morpha X, as well as indications of the modular sensors, modular switches, and even, shows the types of switches contained inside.


Left of the anti-tamper sticker applied to the metal box, EpicGear explains why the Morpha X is the ultimate modular gaming mouse. Here, EpicGear covers just about everything, but leaves out the fact that this mouse can be gray or white too.


On the back edge of the box, the side with the hinges, this is where EpicGear delivers the system hardware requirements and package contents. EpicGear needs an OS from Windows 7 or newer and 200MB of storage for the Morpha X, and we see six things shipped inside of the box.


At the right end of that same side of the tin, we now find the EpicGear name, and that it is a company under the direction of GeIL. It also shows where Golden Emperor International Limited is located and shows the address of EpicGear to find out more information on this product.


The bottom of the tin has a full list of features found on the left side, where they cover seventeen things found on, in, or around the Morpha X. The right half of this panel is used to show off how the MSC and MSS systems work, with explanations next to each image as to what each offer and are capable of.


Inside of the box, after cutting the sticker and lifting the lid, we find all of the components and goodies resting in a deep, dense foam, interior. The paperwork is located above the foam cover inside of the lid, and along with all of the gear is a metal EpicGear label to dress up the packaging even more.


For those that like color options when it comes to their mice, EpicGear includes these two components. The cover for the right and left click buttons is interchangeable, and there is also a white heel cover included. Both of which are held in place with strong magnets, and are easy to swap out.


The optical sensor cartridge is shipped inside of the Morpha X, but laying next to the mouse inside of the tin is the Avago ADNS 9800 sensor cartridge. The best thing about this design is that the MSC system is hot-swappable, so you do not need to unplug the mouse to switch to this laser sensor.


Much like what we would see with a keyboard, EpicGear includes a switch puller for the Omron switches. The orange version of the switches are shipped inside of the mouse, but there is also this pair of purple Omron switches that can be installed after plucking out the orange ones.


The quick start guide is one sheet folded into thirds. Once opened, on one side it shows rendering on how to remove the panels, access the weights and switches, and how to use the MSC sensors cartridges. On the reverse, renderings are pointing out the switch locations, and notations to various other things found in the Morpha X. the last part of the guide is done in nine languages and is where the default functionality is listed for each switch.
