Corsair Vengeance K70 RGB Fully Mechanical Gaming
     Wed, Jan 28 2015 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair have really outdone themselves with the release of the K70 RGB keyboard, by providing near unlimited possibilities regarding the LED lighting configuration thanks to the CUE software but also a large number of customizations are available per-key.

Cherry MX Blue switch edition of Cougar's 600K
     Tue, Jan 27 2015 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have on the review bench the Cherry MX Blue switch edition of Cougar's 600K, a mechanical gaming keyboard that follows in the footsteps of the Cougar 700K without programmable keys and macros (or even configuration software) but still sports backlit LED keys anyway. See if retains more than just the 700K's bells and whistles in our evaluation!

Hands-On: Alienware Alpha Intel-Powered Gaming PC Console
     Tue, Jan 27 2015 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We first caught wind on the Alienware Alpha in the lead-up to Valve’s Steam Box announcements, prior to the Consumer Electronics Show. If you’re unfamiliar with the Alienware Alpha, it is a sleek, small form factor gaming PC, designed specifically for gamers. Valve is not quite ready with Steam OS or the Steam Controller, so the whole Steam Box angle is on hold for now, but that didn’t stop Alienware from re-tooling a bit and shipping the Alpha with Windows 8.1 instead...

Razer BlackWidow Chroma Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
     Mon, Jan 26 2015 | 2:46P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
2014 proved to be extremely kind towards gamers since we witnessed the introduction of several innovative gaming peripherals from VR headsets, eye/motion sensors and 4k gaming screens up to high-end portable sound cards, gaming headsets, gaming chairs and of course gaming mice. However gaming keyboards seem to have received the most love by companies since not only did we watch the introduction of the very first mechanical switches capable of full RGB lighting (Razer, Corsair, Logitech, Tesoro and SteelSeries have such models currently) and the official announcement by Cherry MX regarding their plans for the immediate future but several of the leading manufacturers like Razer (Green) and SteelSeries (QS1) also unveiled their plans to start production of their very own mechanical switches (obviously to cut down costs and to have control over availability). Today with us we have the RGB version of the very highly regarded BlackWidow Ultimate Mechanical Gaming Keyboard called the BlackWidow Chroma which wears the brand new Green switches by Razer.

Tt eSport Ventus Review @ ocaholic
     Fri, Jan 23 2015 | 1:17P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Ventus, TteSports has yet another gaming mouse in its portfolio. This one is very compact and therefore most suitable for small hands. Apart from that it features an ambidextrous design, a PixArt ADNS-9500 sensor and a weight system."

Tt eSport Talon Blu Review @ ocaholic
     Thu, Jan 22 2015 | 1:17P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s always hard to chose a gaming mouse since there are many to choose from and despite that it can be very hard to find an aggressively priced but still good product. Luckily there are vendors trying to fill in that gap. The Tt eSports Talon Blu is a mouse with optical sensor and Omron buttons and it`s being sold for a very low price."

Cougar 600M Laser Gaming Mouse
     Wed, Jan 21 2015 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After a few weeks in use, I have to say the Cougar 600M laser gaming mouse is very comfortable. It is more comfortable than the 700M, and perhaps more so than any other mouse that I can recall using. It fits my hand well, the texture allows me to get a good grip, the buttons are well laid out, and I find the feedback of the buttons to be just right. I can use it for hours on end without any discomfort, and overall it has a very natural feel to it.

GX Gaming SW-G2.1 2000 Gaming Speakers
     Mon, Jan 19 2015 | 6:51P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Discrete sound cards, integrated audio chips, gaming headsets and complete speaker systems are some of the more common items discussed for delivery of gaming audio. Often you will find multiple solutions in a serious gamers tool box: a gaming headset for late night gaming sessions and a speaker solution for when free to play as loud as possible. In today’s review we are looking at a speaker system from GX Gaming that looks to bring full range sound to your gaming experience. The SW-2.1 2000 gaming speaker system has intriguing style but will it deliver the goods?”

Cougar 700K @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Jan 16 2015 | 2:36P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently I had the chance to check out the 700M from Cougar. I went in with a little hesitation but I was pleasantly surprised. The mouse was good but on top of that I was really blown away that a relatively new manufacture had this good of software. This told me that Cougar was investing a lot into their move into the peripheral market, good software is hard to find and very expensive to develop. So today I’m sitting here with the 700M’s partner in crime, the 700K mechanical keyboard. Is the 700K going to be as impressive as the 700M was? Well there is only one way to find out.

     Thu, Jan 15 2015 | 4:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ROCCAT is a German company that was founded in 2007, and is best known for the original Kone gaming mouse. They have since branched out their offerings into other gaming peripherals, including keyboards, mousepads, gaming headsets, and even gaming notebooks. Today we’re going to take a look at the latest gaming keyboard that was added to their arsenal, called the Ryos TKL Pro. The Ryos TKL Pro is ROCCAT’s first Tenkeyless keyboard, aimed at gamers who are looking for a little more room to move their mouse...
