Epic Gear Meduza Mouse and Hybrid Pad Review

The choice of the Meduza name seems a little strange until you flip the box over and then it all becomes clear. The packaging is extremely sturdy with the usual technical highlights on the reverse.
The Meduza itself comes with a heavily braided cable that is rugged yet soft and pliable.
There are two distinct textures. On either side we have the fingerprint magnet that is piano black, and the rest of the mouse is covered in a very soft rubbery coating that allows for easy gripping under even the most demanding gaming environments. Even the low-profile side buttons themselves have this soft rubber coating. As a right-handed mouse the left hand side contains the back/forward buttons as well as the profile selection button which is easy to reach yet not in a position you could hit by accident.
From the front we have the scroll-wheel which has a slightly notchy feel to it, enough to make weapon switching easy but not so clicky that scrolling through documents is an assault upon the ears. Behind that is the DPI adjustment button to swap through the four settings that either are default (if you aren't running the software) or as you've selected if you install the UI.
The back is dominated by the EG and Meduza logos, both of which light up as we'll see on a subsequent page.
It wont have escaped your notice in the above pictures that the base of the Meduza is dayglo orange. Pictures just don't do justice to how eye-strainingly orange this is. As well as the two different sensors we find two large teflon pads for low-friction movement and the selector that switches between the optical sensor, the laser sensor, and the HDST blend of the two.
