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."

MyDigitalSSD OTG mSSD 512GB USB 3.0 Review
     Thu, Mar 05 2015 | 2:04P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Pocket storage becomes faster and more affordable almost every day and once in a while something special comes along. One of those is the MyDigitalSSD OTG mSSD that I’m taking a closer look at today. The OTG mSSD connects through the SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and comes with UASP support for proper SSD speeds. The MyDigitalSSD OTG mSSD is a device that truly lives up to the USB 3.0 SSD hype with its transfer speeds of up to 465MB/s while reading and 450MB/s while writing. This tiny OTG drive is a powerhouse in compact form factor. But the pocket-sized wonder doesn’t stop there as the use of just the best of components reduce the waiting times and maximizes the bandwidth utilization, thus enabling faster and more efficient transfers while helping lower CPU utilization for extended battery life for on-the-go user

Inateck HB3001G OTG 3-Port USB Hub and Card Reader Review
     Sun, Feb 15 2015 | 3:03A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Modern smart devices can perform all sort of things and we’ve reached a time where the term smart might actually apply, that is at least until we get to the issue of connectivity. And this is where the On-The-Go (OTG) feature comes into play, it allows us to expand the connectivity to our Android and other OTG devices by turning the micro USB connector into a USB host adapter. We’ve recently tested some flash drives that support this feature, but OTG is so much more. Inateck have taken a serious look at what smart device users could lack on features and created the HB3001G All in one Card reader and 3-port USB hub for smart devices. While the packaging highlights Samsung S4, S5, Note 3, Note 4, Tab 4 and Tab S devices, this hub will work fine with any OTG enabled device. One of the great features that USB has, the plug and play nature, makes this a possibility.

Cougar has been active on the market for gaming peripherals for several years now, but they've never managed to score very big.

Creative Sound Blaster Tactic3D Rage USB V2.0 Review

Posted by: STAFF
We are looking at the Tactic3D Rage USB V2.0 which is a versatile headset that is compatible with the PC, MAC, PS4 and XBOX ONE* (*with adaptor) through its use of fully modular cables and microphone.

Inateck Wireless Bluetooth 3.0 Portable Keyboard Review
     Fri, Feb 06 2015 | 7:06P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Keyboards are common place for our desktop systems, but these day’s we’re not limited to a single computer, we have many other devices that can benefit from a keyboard input. Our smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, games consoles and more can all benefit from keyboard input, but they often don’t come bundled with one and smartphones and tablets only have a touch screen input, which is hardly ideal for typing documents, writing emails or very long Facebook statuses. Then we have things like HTPC systems, which are great for multimedia playback, or playing games on the big screen, but no one wants a keyboard cable trailing to their home entertainment system; that’s why you need a wireless keyboard.

ErgoDox Ergonomic Mechanical Keyboard Kit @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Feb 05 2015 | 9:01A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So over the past few years I have been lucky enough to cover nearly every new and interesting mechanical keyboard I could find. This includes various models with RGB backlighting, unique switches, and even an ergonomic model. That said there have still been a few mechanical keyboards that I haven’t been able to get my hands on, mostly because they are a little less mainstream. Well last last year I had the chance to talk with a fairly new group buy website called Massdrop, some of you may have heard of it. Massdrop really caught my eye because they do group buys on enthusiasts focused products. It just so happened there mechanical keyboard buyer has seen our coverage in the past and was excited to work with us. I don’t think there is a more fitting product to cover than the ErgoDox Ergonomic Mechanical Keyboard Kit. This is what helped establish Massdrop and it is also one of the most unique keyboards you can get.
