Tesoro Excalibur Spectrum RGB Mechanical
     Tue, Nov 03 2015 | 9:03A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"After using this keyboard for a week, I found it is quite comfortable. This was not the case at first. With as much as Tensoro put under the hood, this keyboard stands tall. Once I was used to it, I learned the benefits of having the Brown mechanical switches equipped. Tensoro has regarded this switch simply as for "the weathered soldier." With easy actuation and rebound, I found extended periods of use did not create excessive fatigue or discomfort. This alone made my experience much better than other mechanical keyboards I have used.”

CM Storm Quick Fire XTi Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Mon, Nov 02 2015 | 9:02A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just several years ago, PC gamers weren’t focusing on mechanical keyboards as a viable upgrade, but now, it’s almost unheard of for a high end gaming system budget to not including a provision for a mechanical keyboard. With gamers now viewing mechanical keyboards as a necessity, it’s no surprise that so many manufacturers are now releasing keyboards aimed specifically towards gamers. This competition is great, as the selection for mechanical keyboards continues to rise and consumers are offered a decent amount of choices when it comes to their keyboard selection. Cooler Master, with most of their keyboard releases, have gone the minimalist route, offering solid build quality on keyboards devoid of dedicated media keys and extraneous features that are of dubious value to gamers. With the Quick Fire XTi ($145.91 shipped), Cooler Master is offering gamers a simplistic, clean keyboard design with red and blue LED lighting effects for the first time on any of the CM Storm gaming keyboards...

Ozone Strike Pro Keyboard Review: Clarity of Purpose
     Thu, Oct 29 2015 | 4:13P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is perhaps no greater feeling in the world than telling somebody to shut-up and proving they are wrong. One persistent narrative in particular that never fails to grind my gears is the so-called impending death of PC Gaming. You can trace back articles from the late 90's claiming the impending doom but one only needs to check the latest …

CooYoo Quantum Ti Titanium LED Flashlight
     Tue, Oct 27 2015 | 9:02A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I’ve got another flashlight for review today from our friends over at GearBest and it’s titanium so it’s made to be rugged and something you’ll take with you everywhere. The light is called the CooYoo Quantum Ti LED Flashlight, the Ti meaning titanium and it’s an LED light but it’s tiny coming in at under two inches long and it’s waterproof and II ‘d have to say it’s virtually indestructible. The light is rechargeable via microUSB and it has a user replaceable battery in it. I love this light, it’s something that will be with me everywhere I go for sure. Read on to learn more… "

CM Storm Quick Fire XTi Review
     Thu, Oct 22 2015 | 4:00P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the XTi, CM Storm adds yet another new gaming keyboard to their Quick Fire series. There is a standard layout and the keyboard comes with plain and simple looks. Since it is a product for gamers, the Quick Fire XTi features a backlight and apart from that you can buy it with different CherryMX mechanical switches.

Mionix Zibal 60 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Wed, Oct 21 2015 | 4:01P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
No matter how many times we've thought about it over the years how rapidly the PC market can change is quite impressive even for us. Take keyboards for example, up until roughly 4-5 years ago every single person i know had been using membrane keys based ones for decades (like myself since the very early 90's) but in such a short time this has changed and so mechanical keyboards are now selling more than twice in number compared to regular membrane ones to professionals, gamers and enthusiasts alike. That's not all however and so although Cherry started it all with their excellent MX switches several years back (around three decades to be exact so it did take a while for the main consumer base to actually see them used in keyboards) the overwhelming demand allowed many manufacturers to make their very own models like Kailh (red/blue/black/brown), SteelSeries (QS1), Razer (green/orange), Matias (Quiet Click) and Logitech (Romer-G). Mionix has only released one mechanical gaming keyboard to date called the Zibal 60 and although it took quite a while for us to get our hands on it we finally did.

OxyLED MD50 Cree 500 Lumen LED Flashlight Review
     Sun, Oct 18 2015 | 9:00A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"It’s like the sun! That’s the first thing I thought when I turned on the flashlight IU have for review today. This light is the MD50 from OxyLED and it’s supposed to be 500 lumens of brightness but it seems a lot more than that. The light can use an 18650 rechargeable battery or three AAA batteries and it’s very rugged and durable and the beam can be adjusted from flood to spot with just your finger while you’re holding it. The light also have five modes and overall it’s just a great light, it’s become my favorite flashlight. Read on to learn more… "

iRocks Rock Series K10 Gaming Keyboard Review
     Mon, Oct 12 2015 | 4:00P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
iRocks are one of the newest names on the scene, and they’re on a mission to create some really great peripherals, without the premium price tag that often accompanies them. I only recently discovered the brand with the release of their iRocks Spirit Cocoon mouse, which was one of the most unassuming products I’d ever seen, only to be left with my jaw hitting the floor when I saw what it could do (full review here). The K10 gaming keyboard is the second iRocks product I’ve ever seen, and if it is even remotely as interesting as the iRock Cocoon mouse, then it should still be pretty special. Targeted at the budget end of the gaming market, this keyboard looks set to innovate on just how much value for money you can really get from your peripherals.

Element Gaming Beryllium Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Mon, Oct 12 2015 | 12:03P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You don’t have to look very far these days to find a great gaming keyboard, or even just a keyboard for day-to-day work, but that doesn’t mean there’s no room for even more! Element Gaming is a relatively new playing in the gaming market, but they’re quickly making a name for themselves thanks to their cool designs, competitive prices and robust build quality. We’ve only seen two Element Gaming products here at eTeknix, the Hyperion Micro-ATXchassis and the Atomic Mini-ITX chassis, although both scored very well in their respective reviews. After two chassis reviews, I’m certainly eager to see what they have to offer to the world of gaming peripherals.

Azio MGK1-K and RGB Backlit Mechanical Keyboards Review
     Sat, Oct 10 2015 | 4:00P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Azio is a company that is likely not too well known by many PC users, except for perhaps some of the diehards in the crowd. In truth, Azio has been around for 15 years but has been recently expanding their peripheral lineup, with an emphasis on mechanical keyboards. Specifically we’re looking at two of their latest mechanical keyboards today, the MGK1-K and MGK1-RGB. Both are sleek and functional, both come with different illumination effects, and both come with very attractive price tags. Can these two boards stand out?”

G.SKILL Ripjaws KM780 RGB Mechanical Keyboard
     Sat, Oct 10 2015 | 12:02P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Upon first look at the KM780, I was taken aback by the design. The bars looked odd to me, but in use they didn't bother me, in fact I had many ideas as to possible uses for them including using them as tie downs for traveling, such as to LAN parties, and for locking the keyboard down to a surface using clamps on the bars – great for systems where the keyboard will move a lot such as gaming PC chair rigs. I was a big fan of the metal accents. The top of the keyboard is brushed aluminum, and the volume knob is knurled metal, too. On the top of the MK780, only the key caps are plastic (not counting the wrist pad). The braided wire sleeve was a nice touch, too, although the cable itself was fairly stiff.”

UltraFire 2000 Lumen Cree XML-T6 LED Flashlight Review
     Sat, Oct 10 2015 | 9:02A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I’ve got another LED flashlight for review today from our friends over at EveryBuying and this light is an Ultrafire XML-T6 that features an adjustable focus along with a nice carrying case included. The light can be powered by three AAA batteries or you can use the 18650 rechargeable battery that they do include for you. Read on to learn more… "

Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E.M GameSmart Mobile Keyboard Review
     Fri, Oct 09 2015 | 5:19P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Smartphones and Tablets are part of our everyday lives and that's not something to go unnoticed by all the manufacturers out there so as expected really the mobile accessories market has grown exponentially over the last 5 years. Right now there's pretty much everything people may need to "enrich" their mobile experience including cases, screen protectors, chargers, stylus pens, charging cables, stands, Bluetooth HandsFree, speakers and car kits, car and bike holders, one touch buttons, selfie sticks and even wireless keyboards. Personally I’m not much into mobile accessories since my job has me spend most of my time in a lab but from time to time i do use one of the two tablets we have here (usually to post on Instagram) and i have to admit that a small Bluetooth keyboard would come in handy. Mad Catz released one such keyboard a few months back called the S.T.R.I.K.E.M and today we're taking a closer look at it.

HandAcc 500 Lumens Adjustable Focus Flashlight @ Technogog
     Wed, Oct 07 2015 | 12:34P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Up for review today I’ve got a flashlight, an LED flashlight that’s made to be waterproof and shockproof and I have to say it’s very durable. The light features an LED that can output up to 500 lumens but there is a high mode, low mode and a strobe mode. The light is powered by three AAA batteries or a standard 18650 rechargeable battery and they’re also included a mount so you can attach the light to your bicycle to have a headlight essentially to light the way. it’s not a bad light overall, it’s well made and it’s bright.

Razer Tartarus Chroma Review
     Wed, Oct 07 2015 | 12:33P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Tartarus is an ergonomically designed keypad with 25 keys at your fingertips with a further alt key and space bar straddling an 8 way thumb pad. You can instantly switch between 8 key maps, save unlimited profiles and unlimited macro lengths to the 25 fully programmable, full anti-ghosting keys. With all this taken into account, it is easy to see how in the Tartarus can become a highly versatile tool in the right hands.

Tesoro Lobera Spectrum Review
     Wed, Oct 07 2015 | 12:00P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Lobera Spectrum, may not be good for slaying real wolves, but it comes as a full 16.8M colour per-key backlit mechanical gaming keyboard with fully customisable key remapping and per-key customisable lighting.
