Cooler Master NovaTouch TKL Keyboard Review
     Sat, Oct 04 2014 | 4:51P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Alright, here we are at the end of the review, and I`ve avoided it long enough: the price. So what is it going to cost to have the NovaTouch TKL on your desk? Well, if you didn`t see it on the first page and die already, well it is up there. It will cost you a pretty $199.99 MSRP to have it. Why so much when you can almost buy two CM Storm Triggers for the same price? Well a lot has to do with the cost of the switch. If you didn`t watch the video of the switch on the first page, go back and take a look. It`s quite a bit different than your Cherry MX switch. You can almost see the cost adding up with the little spring for each key and the work of putting it together."

Cooler Master Novatouch TKL @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Oct 03 2014 | 4:51P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I think by now most of you know I have a bit of an unnatural interest in mechanical keyboards. Almost six years ago I reviewed our first mechanical keyboard and from then on I have been obsessing over every detail on every board as they come out. Nearly two years ago I started to hear rumors that Cooler Master might be looking to produce a Topre keyswitch keyboard. Well today after all of the waiting, we finally have the chance to take a look at the Novatouch TKL with its capacitive (Topre) style keyswitches. Given my good experiences with both my last Cooler Master keyboard and Topre switches I have high expectations, lets hope it can stand up to them."

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive NVIDIA/AMD Benchmarks On Linux
     Fri, Oct 03 2014 | 8:34A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Several hours ago Valve finally released to the public the Linux port of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive! This has been one of the most sought after titles to come to Steam on Linux by gamers and now it`s finally out there. Of course, soon as it was made public, we added support for the game to our benchmarking software. After a very busy night, here`s the first widely available benchmarks of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive running natively on Linux. Up for this first round of testing are an assortment of AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards with the proprietary graphics drivers."

COUGAR 700M Gaming Mouse Review
     Thu, Oct 02 2014 | 6:21P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It doesn`t really matter if you`re a casual, hardcore or professional eSPORTS gamer since the moment you visit your local electronics superstore and head to the computers section chances are that you will be overwhelmed by the sheer number of available gaming mice. Of course as expected (and i consider this to be right) the eye usually falls on models designed and manufactured by the most well-known and established manufacturers out there but there are certainly exceptions to that rule especially when design and price occupy the two top spots in priority for the interested party. COUGAR became quite the popular name after releasing several high quality PC cases and power supply units which also combined performance and features but it wasn`t until just recently that they announced the release of their very first gaming peripherals and today with us we have their flagship gaming mouse model, the 700M."

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!"

Today, Corsair launched Corsair Gaming, a new line of high-end gaming peripherals that replaces the Vengeance naming.

Gaming Surface Reviews
     Fri, Sep 19 2014 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Enter stage left Boogie Bug, created at the turn of the century and dedicated to PC Tuning. We need to admit not always thinking of them when kitting out our rigs, we hope to make amends today. Their website states “When gamers talk to gamers” which if true, can never be a bad thing. We inferred in the Storm RX Gaming Surface review, that even Cooler Master could be a faceless corporation when it comes to what gamers want. We are not entirely sure we can claim the same for Boogie Bug, who seem to be aimed clearly at gamers, something fundamental to their journey.

Coolermaster Devastator Mouse & Keyboard Review
     Thu, Sep 18 2014 | 4:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Coolermaster and their gaming division CM Storm are a popular choice for PC gamers, with a wide range of cooling, chassis and peripheral products that have won virtually countless awards around the world at their disposal. CM Storm do offer a great range of premium products, but we all know that not everyone in the world has a premium sized budget when shopping for their peripherals, which is why CM Storm have created the Devastator. Priced at an average of just £30 the Devestator promises great value for money by bundling together both the MB24 keyboard and the MS2K mouse. There are many reasons for wanting to save a few bucks at your local retailer, you may just be after a cheaper replacement, you may have spent all your money on a huge graphics card, or maybe your building a rig for your kids to play Minecraft and you don’t think splashing out on a £100 mechanical keyboard is the best course of action. What ever your reason, £30 for a mouse and keyboard combo from a well-known brand name is a tempting option, and today we hope to find out if it really is good value for money or not. CM Storm haven’t let us down with their budget friendly products in the past, so it will be interesting to see just how much you can get for your money at this price range.

Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury Gaming Mouse Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Sep 04 2014 | 8:53A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Logitech calls its G402 Hyperion Fury ?The world?s fastest gaming mouse?, an unintuitive and almost ironic statement since computer mice don?t move on their own. There?s only one wheel and it?s not for transporting the mouse. The buttons don?t move any faster. The slick feet on the underside aren?t anything revolutionary. One would think that perhaps this mouse is ultra-lightweight, but It isn?t and it?s actually nearly the same weight as a typical gaming mouse. Read on to find out why the Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury is so fast and see how it performs!"

TteSports Poseidon Z Mechanical Kailh Blue Switch Keyboard Review
     Thu, Aug 28 2014 | 4:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the office today I have something very special, the TteSports Poseidon Z Mechanical Keyboard. While having a mechanical keyboard in for review often feels like a special occasion anyway, since they’re often regarded as premium quality device, there is something uniquely interesting about this keyboard, its switches. The Posidon Z features Kailh switches, and in a market dominated by switches produced by Cherry there has long been room for a strong competitor to enter the market, or at least a cheaper competitor. The question is, can the Kailh Blue switches keep up with the excellent performance of the Cherry MX Blue? Featuring a different switch is one thing, many keyboards implement different methods of registering a keystroke, the important thing about the Kailh switches is that they’re effectively a copy of the Cherry style mechanical switch, but without the wallet hurting price tag often associated with high-end mechanical keyboards. The Poseidon Z will set you back a very affordable £53 / $89, which is around 40% cheaper than most Cherry switch options that are on the market with a similar specification.

Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Blue Switch Mechanical Gaming
     Thu, Aug 28 2014 | 4:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cherry MX is no longer the only recognized manufacturer of mechanical switches in the market (although certainly the most popular) and although some people feel that others can't reach the same level of quality due to lack of experience/expertise i believe that manufacturing a good mechanical switch is not nuclear science and the fact that even gaming peripheral manufacturers like Razer have decided to do so on their own is proof enough. That being said there's a good amount of research that needs to go into the design and manufacture of a mechanical switch but since Cherry MX is the standard currently others need only to "clone" their solutions. Roughly a month ago we had our first encounter with the brand new Kailh Brown mechanical switches which are basically clones of the very well-known Cherry MX Browns and the results were very good. Well to have a better opinion for Kailh mechanical switches today we decided to take a look at the Poseidon Z mechanical gaming keyboard featuring their Blue ones.

CM Storm QuickFire Rapid-i Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Aug 28 2014 | 2:51A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For years now Cooler Master has brought to the masses affordable and clean minimalist looking mechanical keyboards in the form of the QuickFire lineup. While the aesthetic stands in contrast to the rugged looks and military themes of their other signature products, the attention to quality Cooler Master has become so trusted upon is still there. The original tenkeyless Quick Fire Rapid was popular due to its value, space saving functionality, and solid construction, but backlights were on the list as the most requested feature. Earlier this year, the Rapid-i with Cherry MX Brown switches with individually backlit white LEDs was released and now a new Cherry MX Blue switch model has been introduced which we are reviewing."

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.
