G.SKILL at Computex 2015
     Sat, Jun 06 2015 | 6:19A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world’s leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and solid state storage, is excited to showcase a completely new series of high end gaming peripherals at Computex 2015! The new Ripjaws series gaming peripherals include two mechanical gaming keyboards, a RGB gaming mouse, and two 7.1 surround sound headsets.

Fully Customizable Ripjaws KM780 RGB / MX Mechanical Gaming Keyboards
 Available in two lighting flavors, full range RGB and crimson red, the KM780 RGB and KM780 MX are fully loaded mechanical keyboards designed and built with durability and practicality in mind for the ultimate gaming and typing experience. Featuring Cherry MX Red and Brown key switches with 50 million key-press lifecycle and a braided 2.0m USB cable, allows the Ripjaws KM780 series keyboard to last for years of daily usage.
 
The KM780 RGB and KM780 MX keyboard is capable of storing your settings within onboard memory, so you’ll have a personalized keyboard experience no matter which computer you’re connected to. You can store up to three independent modes of settings on the keyboard, easily switchable via Mode hotkeys (M1-M3), each containing its own lighting patterns, macro setup, timer setting, key delay and repeat rate, polling rate, and various other settings, so you can have a personalized keyboard layout for each different gaming character, in-game skillsets, or special macro shortcuts for different applications. Combined with per-key programmability and per-key lighting options, as well as 6 extra dedicated macro keys, the possibilities are endless with the G.SKILL Ripjaws KM780 series mechanical keyboard.

MX780 RGB Gaming Mouse
Designed with the latest technology and customizable to fit your own personal gaming style, the Ripjaws MX780 RGB gaming mouse is ambidextrous and features a height-adjustable palm rest and interchangeable side grips to maximize comfort and support for your hand size and grip style.
 
Constructed with a 32-bit ARM processor, gaming-grade Avago laser sensor, and Omron micro-switches, the MX780 RGB gaming mouse is capable of 1000Hz polling rate, 8200 dpi, tracking up to 150ips, and 30g of acceleration with a durability of 20 million clicks. Up to 5 individual profiles can be stored within the device, each profile with its own sets of customizable RGB lighting across 4 lighting zones and unique settings for 8 fully programmable buttons.
 
Also included are gaming grade PTFE glide pads, notched scroll wheel design, and 5 programmable dpi steps with color indicator, making the Ripjaws MX780 RGB the ultimate gaming mouse that adapts to you and your gaming style, not the other way around.
 
G.SKILL Unified Driver System (G.U.D.S.) Software Suite
 
The unifying backbone to enable full customizability for the Ripjaws series mechanical gaming keyboard and gaming mouse, is the G.SKILL Unified Driver System. An intuitively designed user interface allows you to navigate easily through all the settings, manage stored profiles, and customize each mode for each of your own personal gaming style or application use. From choosing color and lighting patterns, to personalized key functionality, experience the freedom to explore and express your own gaming style. 

Ripjaws SR910 / SV710 7.1 Surround Digital Gaming Headset
Listen to your in-game world expand and come alive on the Ripjaws SR910 in real 7.1 surround sound through 10 discrete audio drivers, or on the Ripjaws SV710 in virtual 7.1 surround sound powered by Dolby Pro Logic IIx through dual 50mm drivers.

Dive into a distraction-free audio experience with a circumaural earcup design, immerse yourself in high-precision positional audio with Xear 3D technology, and enjoy extended gaming sessions in comfortable leatherette lined ear pads. When working with teammates, the built-in ENC (environmental noise cancellation) microphone analyzes and reduces background noise for crystal clear voice communication. Complete with an instant-access in-line control and a full audio control software suite that includes a 10-band equalizer and customizable surround sound speaker positioning, the ultimate audio gaming experience is within reach.

The G.SKILL Ripjaws series gaming gear will be available in 2015 Q3 and detail pricing will be announced soon.

Cougar 500K Gaming Keyboard Review
     Thu, Jun 04 2015 | 4:01P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We have been checking out Cougar’s gaming keyboards over the past couple of months. We first took a look at the high-end 700K, then moved down to the more minimalistic 600K, and today we will be taking a look at the more entry-level 500K. This keyboard is actually quite a lot like the higher-end 700K, it has the same 6 programmable G-keys, N-key rollover, a 32-bit ARM processor and on-board memory, the FPS palm rest and more. What it does lack is the aluminum design and mechanical key switches. So if you are not a fan of mechanical key switches this could be the keyboard for you. This has to be one of the more fully-featured non-mechanical keyboards that we have seen lately. Let’s jump in and see what this keyboard can do!"

COUGAR 600K Review
     Mon, May 11 2015 | 9:01A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Holding the middle-ground within its product line-up the 600K comes equipped with Cherry MX switches, a detachable wrist rest, LED backlighting, and an aluminium strengthened backplate. Glancing upon the 600K at first sight, the similarities between the 700k are quite understandable, it's essentially a cut-down version in both size and features.

Cougar 200K Scissor Gaming Keyboard Review
     Mon, Apr 13 2015 | 12:03P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Today we’re looking at the Cougar 200K gaming keyboard, an affordable board that sports rather smart styling and a couple of interesting features, such as lighting effects and anti-ghosting technology. We often see such features on expensive keyboards, but Cougar looks to be targeting gamers who are on a tight budget yet still want something capable. Retailing for only $30, let’s see how this keyboard stacks up.”

Taming the Cougar 600K Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
     Wed, Mar 25 2015 | 12:00P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Don't beat yourself up if you're not familiar with the Cougar brand. It's a German company that's been in the game since 2007, though its presence in the United States is largely overshadowed by companies like Razer and Logitech, two of the bigger dogs in the gaming peripherals scene. But like Roccat, another device maker headquartered in Germany, Cougar is making an effort to establish a higher level of brand recognition on our home turf by releasing competitive gaming gear that blend form and function. The product we're looking at here is Cougar's 600K Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. It's a subdued version of Cougar's flagship 700K intended for people who want the look and feel of the higher end plank, but not necessarily all the features (or price) that it comes with...

Logitech G910 Orion Spark RGB Mechanical Gaming
     Sun, Mar 22 2015 | 12:03P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The G910 Orion Spark is Logitech’s first RGB mechanical keyboard and it looks nothing like their past keyboards. Its exaggerated futuristic looking vibe stands in contrast to the more conserved, if still somewhat overdone G19 predecessor. There’s also the new naming scheme for Logitech Gaming products released since last year which involves tacking on some combination of two words with the first being the name of a character from Greek mythology. For the G910’s namesake, Orion was a giant huntsman who after his death and defeat to a giant scorpion was honorably placed in the night sky as a constellation. Read on to see how this gaming keyboard performs!

Roccat RYOS TKL Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Thu, Mar 12 2015 | 7:23P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Roccat has one of the best reputations in the PC gaming market. Time and time again they’ve delivered incredibly high-quality peripherals that offer class leading performance. Their Kone and more recently their Ryos gaming mice are still some of the best mice I’ve ever used. Their ISKU is one of the best membrane keyboards on the market and again, their Ryos MK Pro mechanical keyboard which I reviewed a year ago, you guessed it, one of the best keyboards I’ve ever used. It’s for these reasons that I have very high expectations of the Ryos TKL Pro mechanical keyboard I’ll be reviewing today.

Cougar 600K Gaming Keyboard Review

Posted by: STAFF
Everyone wants performance from their peripherals. I beat on my tools daily as I want to squeeze every bit of performance out of them. What concerns me the most is the longevity of a tool, as I do not have time to deal with replacements or try to fix them. This applies to pretty much everything I use for work …

the Cherry MX line of switches
     Wed, Mar 11 2015 | 9:00A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quote: "Until recently, the Cherry MX line of switches were the basis of just about every major gaming mechanical keyboard, although we will discuss recent competitors later on. Its manufacturer, Cherry Corp / ZF Electronics, maintained a strict color code to denote the physical properties of each switch. These attributes range from the stiffness of the spring to the bumps and clicks felt (or heard) as the key travels toward its bottom and returns back up again."

COUGAR 600K Mechanical Keyboard Review
     Mon, Mar 09 2015 | 12:01P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"COUGAR first intrigued me with the announcement of their 600k, a simplified version of the popular 700k gaming keyboard. The 600k was to sport the same quality of construction, but eschew most of the additional function keys of the 700k. Seeing as I'm an FPS player, and can't remember the last time I used a macro, I definitely wanted to take a look at the COUGAR 600k."
