 [LATEST]  Corsair K68 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Thu, Jul 20 2017 | 4:03P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What is the main reason to spend money on a “gaming” mechanical keyboard vs a regular keyboard? With membrane based gaming keyboards, your purchase depends mainly on features that you can only utilize during gameplay. But with a gaming mechanical keyboard, your priorities in performance to value are more broad. You’re looking for a long life keyswitch that offers tactile feel and a comfortable typing experience as well. This is what we should all look for in a gaming mechanical keyboard, does the K68 live up to these expectations? We’ll find out in this article for Benchmark Reviews.

 [LATEST]  Cooler Master MasterMouse S Gaming Mouse Review
     Thu, Jul 20 2017 | 4:02P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We have spent some time with the MasterMouse S while testing it in productivity work but also games, which did include Black Desert Online, Mafia III, Kritika Online and Secret World Legends. The mouse did feel very comfortable during use but regarding the grip modes Cooler Master is mentioning (Palm & Claw), we have only seen the Claw grip usable given the size of the mouse. The Palm grip should only work if you have small hands, but in most cases, it is out of the question. The cable solution coming with this particular model is very sturdy but this fact also implies that it is a little bit rigid so we needed some time to get accustomed with it."

Posted by: STAFF
HP recently released the new S700 Pro SSD series, among them nicely sized 512GB models which we will review. The S700 Pro series should offer a bit more storage space yet remain more price-competitive at mainstream to high-end class SATA3 performance.

 [LATEST]  Corsair Spec-04 Mid-Tower Gaming Chassis Review
     Thu, Jul 20 2017 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair is well-known for their high-end chassis designs. Of course, those big and fancy chassis also come with the price tag to match, putting them out of reach and out of budget for many consumers. Thankfully, Corsair also makes a solid range of affordable products too. We kick things off today with a look at their modestly priced Spec-04. This affordable chassis comes packed full of features at a low price, making it appealing to those building or upgrading a gaming system on a tighter budget.

MSI GTX 1080 Ti Lightning Z 11GB Review
     Thu, Jul 20 2017 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Water cooling is more popular than ever on high-performance graphics cards like the GTX 1080 Ti, solutions include MSI’s Sea Hawk, ASUS Poseidon and Gigabyte Aorus Waterforce. Yet in this high performance market is there still room for the bulky and over-engineered air-cooled option? MSI certainly thinks so with its latest flagship the GTX 1080 Ti Lightning Z.

HyperX Alloy Elite Keyboard Review
     Wed, Jul 19 2017 | 4:03P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At the end of 2016, HyperX launched its first mechanical keyboard, the Alloy FPS, and we loved it – giving it 9/10 and our ‘Must Have’ award. Now, the company is back with a new keyboard, this time named the Alloy Elite. Most notably, it includes a wrist rest, Cherry MX switches and dedicated media keys – but how does it fare in an already saturated peripheral market?

Its Alloy Elite mechanical gaming keyboard takes a different tack by adding flourishes and dedicated controls to the formula. We got the Alloy Elite under our fingers to see whether HyperX struck the right balance.

GSKill Trident Z 4133Mhz RGB CL19 DDR4 Dual Channel Memory Review
     Wed, Jul 19 2017 | 4:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GSKill Trident Z 4133Mhz memory kit is a little unique in that the module speed is well beyond the norm but, still efficient enough to run the RGB LEDs using the same voltage set aside to power the RAM module.

ROCCAT Isku+ Force FX Keyboard Review
     Wed, Jul 19 2017 | 12:01P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ROCCAT Isku+ Force FX is a good keyboard, but it is difficult to justify the tradeoff of having a pressure sensitive zone instead of mechanical keyswitches.

Autonomous DIY SmartDesk Kit Business Edition @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Jul 19 2017 | 9:03A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
My office space has been evolving for a few years now, going back to when I first upgraded my desk to a solid wood desktop and cleaned everything up with new audio hardware, monitors, and a monitor stand. Recently I also upgraded my photo area and added a proper workbench as well. Both of those are set to a standing height to get me on my feet more during the day. With testing and writing though I still spend far too much time sitting each day and over the past few years of me doing all of this full time it has played a big role in my health. To start working on that, a while back, I reached out to Autonomous about upgrading my desk to a SmartDesk 2 Business Edition. I’ve been living with it for a while now and I want to sit down, or in this case, stand and talk a little about how the whole process has worked so far.

Tt eSPORT MEKA Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Wed, Jul 19 2017 | 9:02A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When looking for a gaming keyboard, one of the first questions we ask is: is it mechanical? It isn’t necessary to have when gaming and for the casual gamer, we’re content with using the Microsoft keyboard that comes stock with our pre-built computers that we bought just to play League of Legends and Club Penguin. Then again, we do have the option of going all-out. Gaming keyboards have become pretty pricey. With reputable keyboards ranging from around $100 USD to $200 USD. The Thermaltake MEKA Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard retails for $89.99 shipped, so read on to find out how it preforms!
