Corsair Gaming K70 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Oct 02 2014 | 10:23A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It?s finally here. After three quarters since being revealed to the world, a certain lineup of keyboards with obnoxiously bright individually backlit keys that spill copious amounts of light from beneath the keycaps are now more gaudy than ever much to our delight. Multicolor RGB lighting for the Corsair Vengeance K70 and Corsair Vengeance K95 keyboards was first shown off at CES 2014 in January to much attention. For years, multicolor backlighting was a highly requested feature for mechanical keyboards. The vast majority of backlit mechanical keyboards only use a single LED color, but individually LED-lit keys have the benefit of luminous and highly visible keyboard lighting even in well-lit environments. Read on to see how the Corsair Gaming K70 RGB performs!"

Grain Audio PWS.01 Packable Wireless Speaker Review
     Wed, Oct 01 2014 | 5:27P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are more portable wireless speaker manufacturers out in the market currently than i can even begin to count but the thing that really matters is that most of them have one thing in common, they don`t seem to focus enough in producing high quality and high performance products mainly because the majority of their target audience places low-cost and design above everything else. There are certainly some exceptions to that rule so aside low-cost portable wireless speakers these companies do occasionally release good quality products but still not on par to what some other more audiophile oriented companies do. Grain Audio may not have been around for long but they`ve got a large following around the world simply because they cater to the needs of people who place quality and performance above cost and so it`s no surprise that we just had to check out their latest products and the PWS.01 packable wireless speaker is the first to reach our doorstep."
