Cherry MX-Board 3.0 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Apr 18 2015 | 10:16A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the best things about keyboards is there is a keyboard for nearly any situation and any personality. You have the choice to go mechanical or rubber domes and then after that you can pick from wireless and wired and even the keyboards focus. Being LanOC we do cover a lot of keyboards that have a big gaming focus but arent limited to just gaming keyboards. Today Im going to take a look at a keyboard from Cherry, yes the Cherry that makes the Cherry MX keyswitches that everyone loves. Today Im taking a look at the Cherry MX-Board 3.0, a non-backlit keyboard with a standard office focus. Im excited to see what Cherry has to offer and to find out if the MX-Board 3.0 is the way to go when looking for a quality non-backlit mechanical keyboard."

Grand Theft Auto IV 7-Years Later
     Sat, Apr 18 2015 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The story is, separate from the narrative, nothing too special, but when you consider the actual storytelling, GTA IV does it exceptionally well. You get a real feel for the world and characters, even if they do end up betraying you, or you end up killing them. Plus the voice work actually seems natural, without pauses when switching speakers. The gameplay, too, is a lot of fun, but there are definitely some issues to it. Sure, these issues in a way come from the game trying to be a simulator, but sometimes you should embrace a game for being a game and bend the rules of reality some. (I am mostly thinking of the vehicle management here.) The graphics are dated and clearly ported from the consoles, which is not something in the game's favor, but you can get through it. It may be old, but something worth returning to, if you are interested in it.”

Ozone Argon Ocelote World gaming mouse and mat
     Wed, Apr 15 2015 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Even though a lot of pro-gamers are endorsing gaming peripherals these days, it is rare that you see one named after a particular player. Still, that is exactly what has happened with Ozone’s latest hardware, which is named after one of the highest earning eSports gamers in the world: Carlos “Ocelote” Rodriguez.

Cougar 200M gaming mouse review
     Sun, Apr 12 2015 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the quest to develop a gaming mouse that is that much better than the last, peripheral makers the world over often add features that many would consider unnecessary. Sure, customisable lighting is nice and an advanced, gaming grade laser sensor with adjustable weights and palm rests are great, but what if you don’t want to pay for all that? What if all you want is a reasonably sensitive, durable gaming rodent to improve your laptop’s input? What if you want a gaming peripheral, without the gamer price tag? That is the sort of customer that Cougar is looking for with its 200M gaming mouse. It has an optical sensor, features high-end OMRON switches and a modest sensitivity of 2,000 DPI. Is it worth its equally humble price tag? Let us see if we can find out.

Tesoro Excalibur RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
     Thu, Apr 09 2015 | 11:51A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just like everything else in the PC industry the technology behind gaming gear never sits still especially now with the increased number of eSports competitions. However although gaming mice and headsets have evolved quite a bit over the past decade the same didn't seem to apply for keyboards (not for consumer oriented models anyways) since it wasn't until just a few years back that we saw the introduction of models featuring Cherry MX mechanical switches. Now mechanical switches may not offer much more compared to regular membrane ones but they do offer many times higher life expectancy and if you happen to be a gamer and about to spend quite a bit on a new keyboard durability is indeed very important. Of course gaming peripheral manufacturers are well aware that durability alone is no longer sufficient in order to attract consumers so they've been adding more features like N-Key rollover, macro keys, on-board memory and of course LED illumination. The Excalibur RGB (G7NFL) is one of the latest Mechanical Gaming Keyboards by Tesoro and today we'll be taking a very thorough look at it.

AKRacing Rush Gaming Chair Review
     Thu, Apr 09 2015 | 11:49A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I have a long personal history with chairs, going all the way back to my early days as an infant sitting tall in a high-chair. I recall the steel folding chairs heated by the sun during my graduation commencement. There was even a memorable chair that followed me around after college, and played several roles at the dining table and behind the office desk. More recently, there was the expensive Embody Chair that stirred controversy. In this article for Benchmark Reviews, I spend hours on my seat to test the new AKRacing Rush gaming chair.

Crysis 2 4-Years Later
     Mon, Apr 06 2015 | 2:20P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Should we fight the Ceph and put the Nanosuit on once again? In general, I am going to say no, but on sale, I say 'why not.' I prefer not to bring price into reviews, but I think it helps qualify my recommendation for Crysis 2. It is a fun game that, as far as the gameplay is concerned, is just too short for my liking, and its very linear design does not help much. If you have it and want to play an enjoyable FPS, go ahead and get into the game, but if you are thinking about purchasing it, I recommend you watch for a sale. While the gameplay is fun, the story is not as solid as I would prefer, contains plot-holes, and definitely teases future games. On its own that is not bad, but generally I would like to see a sequel answer more questions than present more. The graphics do look good, but these are not the generation-defying looks you may expect given the title. It looks like a more modern game built for the previous generation of consoles, which just means it looks like so much more could have been done.”

Element Gaming Neon 300 Review
     Mon, Apr 06 2015 | 2:15P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The range of headsets from Element Gaming are named after Nobel gases and the first we take a look at the Neon 300. Being an entry level product, there is glossy plastic, in this case it is black complimented by a mid-blue colour, similar to the blue LED lighting seen on many keyboards. What the price level doesn't tell you is that the Neon 300 has 50mm drivers driven via USB as well as offering a colourful LED lighting effect. Though the actual products are made by a Chinese OEM that are used by various other brands, it would appear that this OEM are able to cater for third party specifications and design allowing for variation.

Crysis and Crysis Warhead 7+ Years Later
     Thu, Apr 02 2015 | 2:06P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Should we put the Nanosuits back on and uncover the alien threat again? If you are looking for a good and beautiful FPS, then I can definitely recommend these classics. Yes I do feel that Warhead is the better of the two, as far as gameplay is concerned, but I do not think it should be played without also playing the original Crysis. It provides context, and despite its faults, is still a good game. The graphics are still top-notch, the stories are good, and while the gameplay can have its issues, both games offer a pretty solid experience. Performance could be a problem for some, depending on their hardware. Even though my GTX 980 was only able to keep the games in the 30s, that does not mean lesser cards cannot do the same, even at max settings, as I am suspicious of the games' optimization. Besides, turning down the graphics is not a bad thing if it lets you get in the game.”

CM Storm Alcor Optical Gaming Mouse Review
     Mon, Mar 23 2015 | 12:25P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Alcor has proven to be a very popular mouse in recent months, when it launched alongside the Mizar we opted to put the Mizar to the test, so it only seemed right that we should follow-up with its brother, the Alcor, for our latest review. Both the mice are named after stars, hence the space-themed promotional video below; pretty cool. The Alcor offers all the usual features you would expect from a mid-budget gaming mouse. It’s got on the fly DPI adjustments, an ergonomic design for right-handed use, a 4000 DPI Avago 3090 optical sensor and customizable LED lighting; not bad for a mouse that only costs around £30 from most major retailers.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
