EpicGear really likes modular peripherals. First we saw the DeFiant keyboard, which lets users change the mechanical switches on a per-key basis, and today we are looking at the Morpha X mouse. What makes the Morpha X modular is the fact that you can change pretty much everything about it – its colour, its weight, its button switches and even the sensor type.
By now there’s a good chance that this mouse has piqued your interest, I know the EpicGear Morpha X certainly intrigued me when I first heard about it. In this review, we look at all the special features which make this mouse so interesting, as well as its day-to-day performance.
Before moving on, though, it is worth noting that the Morpha X is not currently available to buy in the UK from the likes of Overclockers UK or any other major e-tailer. It retails for $129.99 in the US, though, so we will be using that price as a guide when reviewing this mouse.
