Fnatic Gear Rush G1 Mechanical Keyboard Review
     Fri, Dec 02 2016 | 9:03A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The world of eSports has grown tremendously over the last few years so much so that high-profile teams don't need sponsors for peripherals anymore- instead they can design their own. Today, we are looking at Team Fnatic's own keyboard, released under the 'Fnatic Gear' brand. How does it stack up to the competition? With recent price drops from £119.99 to £69.99 we felt we should re-evaluate the Rush keyboard.

Realforce RGB @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Dec 01 2016 | 9:40A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past few years the market for mechanical keyboards with RGB backlighting has gone crazy. The problem though is all of those RGB keyboards have had Cherry switches, knock off cherry switches, or a few custom switches designed by companies like Logitech and SteelSeries. One of my favorite mechanical switch types is Topre, but with the exception of a few knockoffs you haven’t been able to get Topre keyboards with any backlighting, let alone full RGB backlighting. So when Realforce introduced their upcoming keyboard, the Realforce RGB I had to check it out. Of all of the keyboards I have my Realforce 87u is one of my favorites to type on, but the lack of backlighting or even easy to read legends in the light forced me to keep it put up. So it will be exciting to see how Realforce’s new keyboard performs to see how it compares.

RGB mechanical gaming keyboard
     Thu, Dec 01 2016 | 9:38A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"As to construction, I was surprised by how solidly build this $59 keyboard was, as even grasping it from both ends and twisting didn't produce any creaking sounds. It's pretty light overall, but the metal plate beneath the keys really seems to help with rigidity with an otherwise plastic design. The flip-out feet on the bottom are also pretty sturdy, and with these extended the keyboard felt solid on my desktop. Curiously, there are only the two front rubber feet on the bottom of the keyboard without those back feet popped out, so for stability you pretty much have to use the keyboard with a tilt - something I don't usually do. I would have liked to see four rubber pads under the keyboard, leaving the tilt as an optional thing - though it didn't actually slide too much without them."

SteelSeries Apex M500 Mechanical Pro-Gaming Keyboard Review
     Tue, Nov 29 2016 | 4:00P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It may have taken SteelSeries a while but they've finally released the successor of their highly popular 6Gv2 mechanical keyboard, the Apex M500.

Logitech C922 Review
     Sat, Nov 26 2016 | 4:03P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In a bid to dethrone the popular C920, Logitech are back with a successor named the C922. This new webcam may look decidedly similar to its predecessor; but looks can be deceiving. The C922 now carries 60fps via 720p, includes a handy mini tripod and bears the Personify background replacement feature.

The $40 Mechanical Keyboard
     Fri, Nov 25 2016 | 9:03A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What if you want a mechanical keyboard but only have $40 to spend? With the market now flooded with loads of Cherry MX knock-off switches, this has enabled companies to develop very affordable mechanical keyboards. One such case is the GranVela MechanicalEagle Z-77, available on Amazon for as little as $35.

Gamdias Hermes P1 Keyboard Review
     Thu, Nov 24 2016 | 4:02P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Hermes P1 RGB mechanical gaming keyboard is part of a new RGB gaming peripheral line from Gamdias. It features RGB illumination with clicky TTC Blue mechanical switches on the signature Gamdias aluminum frame. Six separate profiles can store different macro functions and lighting effects. A detachable wrist rest is included for extra comfort along with a keycap puller tucked underneath the keyboard. With the Hera software, users have plenty of options to choose from to customize the keyboard. At Benchmark Reviews, we will take a look at what the Hermes P1 RGB has in store and compare it to the competition.

CHERRY MX Board 6.0 Mechanical Keyboard Review
     Thu, Nov 24 2016 | 9:01A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
CHERRY MX Board 6.0 is a premium keyboard with top-notch hardware, incorporating MX Red switches, low-profile ABS keycaps and RealKey technology for minimizing the response times to unrealistic levels. The product lacks software customization as we have seen with many other gaming keyboards sporting same switches, the LED lighting is only red (and blue for several function keys), while the price is matching the high-end offerings from other brands."

Glorious Modular Mechanical Keyboard review
     Thu, Nov 17 2016 | 10:36A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Glorious Modular Mechanical Keyboard, or GMMK, is something special. It was announced on Instagram and a few keyboard forums, which qualifies for quite possibly the most niche and underground announcement I’ve ever seen. After 10 months of development, the GMMK is released, again announced in forums, and available.

     Mon, Nov 14 2016 | 4:01P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we all know Kingston is one of the most well known and well respected computer memory manufacturers in the world. A few years ago Kingston decided to to take the leap that a lot of memory and GPU companies are taking into the gaming peripheral world. Kingston came to market with their HyperX gaming headset that was very well received by the gaming community, I own the original version myself and you couldn’t pry them from my cold dead hands if you tried. Since the popularity of their headset Kingston has now moved on to other gaming peripherals. So today I would like to introduce you all to the HyperX Alloy FPS gaming keyboard....
