Epic Gear are a relatively unheard of gaming peripherals company, partly because they are actually a branch of Golden Emperor International Limited (GEIL) who’s RAM most people have heard of.  GEIL have also ventured into the PSU market with Thortech. Gaming peripherals are the latest venture that GEIL are experimenting with. So far they only have a few products on the market, but this could all change depending the successfulness of the current products. Having the right mouse is essential for every gamer. It can make all the difference, especially when playing competitively. Although what good is a decent gaming mouse  if the surface that it is being used on is rubbish? That would be like having a ferrari but only having dirt tracks to drive it on.  Having the best mouse pad is yet another variable that must be considered and can often be just as difficult as selecting the right mouse. Well it looks like GEIL have saved everyone that problem by releasing their first gaming mouse and matched mouse pad.

The Meduza gaming mouse is the first mouse that we have seen that features both an optical and laser sensor. By using Epic Gear’s Hybrid Dual Sensor Technology (HDST), it is possible to use both sensors, combining the sensitivity of the laser, and the stability of optical. The Meduza also has the ability to use just one sensor, which can be controlled by a flick of a switch on the bottom of the mouse. Epic Gear have created a special mouse pad to fully benefit from the dual sensor technology, something we be reviewing alongside the mouse.


The follow specs are for the Meduza:
