The Anansi from Razer is a membrane-based keyboard, with a nice customizable LED effect, over 100 programmable keys, on-the-fly macro recording and an unique feature: the 7 thumb modifier keys right under the Space Bar which help to perform even more complicated macros or can aid in various productivity applications.

SuperSpeed USB connectivity may be a nice additional perk as part of a future system but is it worth the trouble as a standalone upgrade?"

Thermaltake Meka G1 Gaming Keyboard
     Sun, Mar 13 2011 | 9:00A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"First off you may have noticed that the Logitech G15 has no scores. That is because when the testing was taking place, I kept getting errors that there was not enough power to run the device. This is because there is a single USB plug that runs the whole keyboard. I kept this in the review test because I wanted to show how much of a difference the Meka G1 adds by using a separate USB connection for the hub, separating the power requirements and giving the USB hub enough juice to run the Mushkin thumb drive. Now when it came down between the Meka G1 hub and the direct connection tests, you can plainly see the hub stands its ground. The difference between the hub and directly connected is so minimal that the slight decrease in speed will be transparent to the end user."

SteelSeries Shift MMO Gaming Keyboard Review
     Sat, Mar 05 2011 | 4:01P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"What really makes the SteelSeries Shift keyboard unique is its ability to swap out keysets. On the right side of the keyboard is a lock which, when pulled up, allows the keys to be removed. After removing the keyset, we can see the rubber domes which are made of high quality silicone which SteelSeries claims will extend the life of the keys to about 15 million keystrokes. This also allows the keyboard to be cleaned easily with some canned air or a vacuum which I think is also a plus...."

Challenger Pro Gaming Keyboard review
     Fri, Mar 04 2011 | 9:03A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The world of gaming, especially that of PC gaming, has become more than a simple hobby for a lot of us. In fact, gaming has grown and shaped itself, becoming part of people's lifestyle. Tournaments, from the World Cyber Games (WCG) to the famous GSL tournaments, have made gaming a fascination to viewers, fans, and gamers alike. I myself have devoted countless hours to this world of gaming, and by no means do I consider this time wasted. It becomes more than a hobby, and slowly, it transforms into a passion that can be greatly admired by other gaming enthusiasts. When I was asked to review the official keyboard of the WCG tournament of 2010 -- Tt eSPORTS Challenger Pro -- I could not help but feel my passion burn with excitement. Being the first keyboard to come out with a cooling fan, chills were sent down my back at the pure creativity of Thermaltake's long standing tradition of keeping things cool. Spending my sweet week and a half with one of the newest and most compelling of all gamer keyboards has allowed me to view the world of gaming in an entirely new fashion. That is right, ladies and gentle-readers. This single gaming peripheral has changed my perspective of PC gaming and brought something much more to be either praised or condemned. Itching to find out what became of my thoughts? Read on to find out!

Meka G1 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Fri, Mar 04 2011 | 9:01A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I have reviewed the Gigabyte Aivia K8100 keyboard, and gosh, does time ever fly! As time continues to roll, many events in our lives change how we live, especially in such a technology driven world. However, some concepts and ideas remain the same, and Thermaltake has proof for you today. Thinking back into the days when mechanical keyboards came out, those were the times of innovation, and it has been quite fascinating to see how much keyboards have changed over the years. Keyboards became more ergonomic and sleek, and many new variants of the good old QWERTY keyboard are made and sold every day. Thermaltake's very own brand of computer gaming peripherals, Tt eSPORTS, has a pretty slick offering under its belt today. The Meka G1 is really a traditional mechanical keyboard, yet it can also be found under the gaming section of peripherals. What is so special that places the Meka G1 in two different peripheral categories at the same time? Is it possible that Thermaltake has revolutionized the traditional mechanical keyboard? Keep reading to find out!

Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth Edition Mechanical Keyboard Review @ HardwareHeaven.com

Posted by: STAFF
Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth Edition Mechanical Keyboard Review @ HardwareHeaven.com For consumers who prefer a more understated mechanical keyboard design than the shiny finish or clicky keys of the original BlackWidow Razer now offer the Stealth Edition. With its matte soft touch coating and low noise buttons this version of the Ultimate should open up the product to a wider market."

Thermaltake Challenger Pro Gaming Keyboard
     Wed, Feb 09 2011 | 9:02A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"A keyboard is a keyboard right? Thermaltake is betting against that school of thought with their Challenger Pro keyboard. Being of the eSports series, this keyboard was designed with gamers in mind with specific functions tailored to their needs. It is the big brother of the standard Challenger keyboard with additional features. While you can play games on most any keyboard, Thermaltake has stepped this keyboard up and has included some expanded functions that most other keyboards cannot offer."

Kingwin DM-2356 Dockmaster II Review
     Thu, Feb 03 2011 | 9:03A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Consumers who like to upgrade their computer(s) often, or even upgrade once for that matter, have a need for a product like the one I'm about to show you here. Have you ever had a computer crash on you and you lost all your data? Sucks huh? There is nothing more gut-wrenching then losing a decade's worth of your irreplaceable children's pictures because you didn't take the few minutes once in a while to back them up. Backing up one's data is of the utmost importance for today's consumers. So much of our lives have gone digital, with pictures probably ranking first on the list for non-replaceable data. Sure you could burn a bunch of CD's or DVD's (or even blu-rays now), but that is not nearly as configurable as a hard drive of some sort."

Gigabyte Aivia K8100 keyboard review
     Wed, Feb 02 2011 | 9:00A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to gaming, most of the time, the first thing that comes to my mind are consoles like Nintendo 64, Wii, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360... and the list goes on and on. Back in the days, I did not have the opportunity to ever think about computer gaming, as I was always left in the dust with a piece o' crap Pentium II machine (Just for clarification, I currently own two Core i7 based desktops, and a handful of other high performance laptops). And when it does come down to computer gaming, while I own a vast collection of high performance peripherals from well known manufacturers such as Logitech, Razer, and Microsoft, I always thought it was purely my skills that counted -- everything else like computer hardware and peripherals were second in line. While the companies as aforementioned are probably the first and only ones to come to mind for many consumers and enthusiasts alike, our Editor-in-Chief Jonathan recently asked me if I would like to review the Gigabyte Aivia K8100 gaming keyboard. Yes, that's from the same company that makes motherboards and video cards. All of a sudden, my world of gaming peripherals just stood in awe. The first and only thing that came to mind when I looked at the photos on the product page was, "It looks like a Lamborghini!" Pulling it out of the box when it arrived a week later, I had to take a moment to admire such a keyboard, the likes of which I had never owned before. Has Gigabyte pulled a bunny out of the hat to surprise us all? Or is this keyboard like any other so-called 'gaming keyboard' on the market that the big boys in the market have nothing to worry about? Read on to find out!

Posted by: STAFF
"The SatisLED SL-FL10 10 Watt LED Floodlight is an incredibly unique product on the market for 2011. No one I know has ever seen one of these devices and the goal of this review is to introduce you to both the efficiency and numerous mounting possibilities that it offers. I have had a lot of fun adding these lights to my home over the past few months because the low power demand means the cabling cost is minimal."

Gigabyte Aivia K8100 Keyboard Review
     Wed, Jan 19 2011 | 12:02P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"You know that expression "this is the Ferrari of keyboards"? Well, it seems that Gigabyte got inspired by it and created a great gaming keyboard that, aside from really behaving like a Ferrari of gaming keyboards, it also features a design clearly derivative of the Italian car maker. The Aivia K8100 comes in black, red and yellow versions and features an emblem on the wrist rest that just looks too much like the ones found on sportst cars. Let's take it for a ride then."

Thermaltake Challenger Pro Keyboard Review
     Tue, Jan 18 2011 | 4:48P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Known for their coolers and cases, Thermaltake began investing in the gaming market with the Tt eSports brand. The line spawned the Challenger Pro, a keyboard with ten programmable keys, two USB ports, detachable cloth-wrapped cable and a feature that drew our attention: a 30 mm fan to cool the user's hand. But is it too much for show or not? We'll see throughout the test."

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.
