My multiplayer gaming skills are certainly not what they used to be., so any kit that can give me any kind of advantage to my waning reactions is much appreciated.
Rather than scrambling to remember what number keys my special abilities are bound to and ending up a red smear on a dungeon floor, the Trust 970 MORFIX puts these at my fingertips, making me faster and better equipped than before.
Trust is known for producing cheap, reliable PC peripherals (I'm pretty sure one of my first PC mice was a Trust mouse, and they have come a long way since that old grey brick).
While definitely suited more to MMORGs and MOBA games it's also great for many others too
In the past few years, they have turned their attention to creating affordable gaming accessories, balancing high-end features with an affordable price.
The Morefix is an accurate gaming mouse featuring RGB lighting and interchangeable side plates that add 9 extra programable buttons to the left side of the mouse, designed for those who play MMORPGs or MOBA games that require you to juggle lots of different skills and items at once.

The device at first glance looks like a standard gaming mouse, mostly matte black with RGB lighting on the logo and mouse wheel, adding a splash of colour without looking over the top.
With a height of 42mm, a width of 72mm and a depth with Morfix is a standard size mouse that will accommodate most hands – unless you have big hands.
Due it its high DPI the Morfix is fast and accurate
With a lightweight of 167g it's not the lightest I’ve used, but it still feels comfortable enough without feeling like it can be accidentally thrown across the room.
The smooth matte design didn’t always feel super easy to grip especially if you have wet hands or sweat a lot.
The mouse feels moderately well built and solid, as well as slightly heavier at the bottom. The RGB looks nice and not too distracting.

The left and right mouse buttons felt light and responsive, but they did feel a little delicate. The scroll wheel features RGB lighting and is textured, making it easy to use.
The Morfix is connected via a very long, 180cm, USB A 2.0, braided cable; this offers lag less gameplay unlike some wireless mice, and will not require batteries.

By default, the mouse can be switched from between 800, 1600, 2400, 3200, 4000 and 5000. But you can customise these within the downloadable software, which is available from the Trust website.
The software is simple and easy to use as all your options are laid out on one screen. From here, you can change the sensitivity, button configuration and even the RGB lighting making it look exactly how you want it to look.
The downloadable software allows you to create your perfect set up
One of the most interesting features included in the mouse software is the option to create some limited macros and assign them to the mouse buttons. These Macros are recorded tasks that can be replayed to help perform repetitive tasks.
The optical sensor has a maximum sensitivity of 10,000 DPI, this is crucial for accuracy in games.
A higher DPI means your targeting crosshairs will basically travel across the screen faster, which is useful for games like first-person shooters or if you are working across multiple high-resolution screens.
With the 9 button plate attached you can program a total of 14 buttons
It also features an adjustable polling rate from 125 up to 1000Hz. The polling rate refers to how many times your mouse reports its position to your computer, which also helps greatly with speed and accuracy.
The key feature of the Morfix is its interchangeable side plates for both the left and right-hand side of the mouse.
The Morfix is an incredibly customizable mouse; you can attach one of two plates to the left side of the mouse, where your thumb sits.

The first option is a 9 button plate that lays out the buttons on a 3×3 grid shape, or there's the option of a 3 button plate that is a little less cramped.
You can also slightly modify the shape of the mouse with the 2 right-hand plates, one with a slight finger rest for your ring finger and little finger.
Changing the plates is quick and easy as both magnetically attach to the side and while easy to remove, they only fell off once while I was playing.
The customisable buttons can really be a life saver in online competitive games
While it takes a little practice to get the hang of the layout due to the small buttons being tightly grouped together, once you’ve used it for a while it begins to become second nature to cast buffs on yourself, or health while prepping your next stunning attack.
I also found the extra buttons handy for other things like photoshop and video editing, and some of my everyday work actions.

To add to the extensive customisation of this mouse, I wish there were different weights available and some additional side plate options making this impressive layout swapping even more versatile.
The Trust GTX 970 Morfix is a great mouse for those getting started in MMORPGs and MOBAs, but is handy for any game type.
The swappable plates are great for changing your set-up on the fly, I only wish Trust had leaned into this heavy customisation even more with added weight and more plate configurations.
Whether you play RPGs, FPS, RTS or any competitive gaming, the GTX 970 Morfix helps give you the edge by putting shortcuts closer to your fingertips, giving you the speed to crush the competition and all for a brilliant price.
