EpicGear Morpha X Modular Gaming Mouse Review

DOOM & Battlefield 1


While doing a lot of gaming, we tried both ESCs and both sets of ESS setups. The laser sensor delivers what we expected from a 9800, and we found that we did a lot of our gaming at 5200 DPI, as it seems to be the sweet spot for our needs. We did not find that the sensor was wandering, or that it was unable to track our movements, but being able to compare sensor types head to head, we did end up with a preference to the 3360 optical sensor. The reason being is that we felt the optical sensor is more sensitive to your movements, and we felt we had better control over the Morpha X with it being used.



We also like the fact that we can hot swap the sensors, so we can move from one to the other without any break in the action to compare the two. The switches seemed to make less of a difference to us while gaming, but we could feel a difference between them. The orange set has a stiff feel throughout their use, where the purple switches have a soft feel to the beginning, almost as if the switches are halfway actuated all the time, waiting for just the slightest bit of pressure to take the head shot. The glide is smooth on the PTFE feet, and with all the options available in this Morpha X, it is up to you to set yourself up with what feels best for your gaming style.



Windows and Productivity


While this mouse is certainly oriented to the gamers out there, we found no reason why we could not use this mouse for day to day activities as well. The Morpha Z has a good feel to it, and the shape allowed us to use it for hours on end with no signs of fatigue.


The sensor and switch type mattered even less when it comes to scrolling pages on the internet or whatever sort of programs you may run, but again we found that when it came to editing images, we preferred the accuracy of the optical sensor the best. There is nothing at all wrong with the laser sensor, and we prefer it on many other mice, but with the Morpha X allowing us to compare it on-the-fly, we were able to pick up on subtle differences which lead us to these conclusions.
