Gigabyte Aivia Osmium Gaming Keyboard Review
     Thu, Jul 26 2012 | 4:00P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While writers will often elect for a natural or ergonomic keyboard gamers are a little different. This group tends to concern themselves less with the shape and more with what the device can do and how it will help them win games. In this review I'll be looking at the latest mechanical keyboard from Gigabyte called the Osmium.

CM Storm Trigger review: mechanical keyboard
     Tue, Jul 24 2012 | 9:02A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Keyboards come in all shapes and sizes - from simple to advanced, basic or with display, or with a sound card or extra keys. Some people swear by mechanical keyboards and refuse to use anything less. Usually they are built with quality materials, have a solid feel and provide tactile feedback when typing. CM Storm's Trigger mechanical keyboard recently saw a Europe-wide release, which is reason enough for Hardware.Info to take closer look at this robust-looking keyboard.

Satechi 4 Port SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Hub Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Jul 17 2012 | 9:07A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Now that USB 3.0 devices are starting to become more and more prevalent, the need for open ports to plug them in grows. All the while, mobile computers are getting more and more compact, offering fewer ports. Satechi may have a solution with their colorful four port USB 3.0 hub. While it offers additional ports, will it muck up the USB 3.0 speeds in the process? Have a look to see."

Corsair Vengeance K60 & M60 FPS Keyboard & Mouse Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Jul 13 2012 | 9:16A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The time I spent with the Corsair Vengeance M60 and K60 has been very positive. They are both very comfortable and ergonomic. The wrist wrest on the K60 could stand to be longer, perhaps the full length of the keyboard. Its hard to adjust coming from a keyboard that has a wrist wrest and then going to the K60 which only provides a rest for the left arm on the WASD keys. I understand this though, with it being an FPS motivated keyboard. The 20 key rollover is extremely nice, but something that I personally will never fully utilize but Im sure that there are plenty of people out there who are more than capable of taking advantage of that..."

     Tue, Jul 10 2012 | 4:25P | Peripherals | PermaLink

The change being a bench table, and the Phobya WaCoolIT is a new one we`re looking at today. It packs some style and great features, so grab a frosty beverage and let`s take a look at the functionality of this stylish and large test bench."

Cooler Master Storm Trigger Gaming Keyboard Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Mon, Jul 09 2012 | 12:04P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master launched their Storm Trigger into a cluttered peripheral market.  However, with Cherry MX Brown switches, an adjustable backlight, intuitive software and a relatively inexpensive price, they may just have what it takes to capture the hearts of gaming enthusiasts. "

CM Storm Quick Fire Pro Gaming Keyboard Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sat, Jul 07 2012 | 12:04P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Arming the gaming revolution is a phrase Cooler Master coined when debuting the CM Storm brand. The first CM Storm product I had the joy of using was the Spawn gaming mouse. I won the Spawn gaming mouse at the largest LAN party the state of NJ has ever had the privilege of hosting, The GXL. If youve ever seen the Spawn mouse it looks quite the opposite of impressive. It comes in a small box and is cheaply priced. Honestly, I wasnt expecting much. When I first opened the product I thought I was looking at another gimmicky product and if youve ever read any of the reviews in the past you know how I feel about products like that. It reminded me of a bear claw, yes, the pastry. After about 5 minutes of use on my work laptop my opinion couldnt have been more different compared to the moment the box was originally handed to me. The Spawn is one hell of a gaming mouse. By far, the best $40 mouse Ive ever used. So, when Bob asked me to take a look at the CM Storm Quick Fire Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard I was very enthusiastic about the opportunity. I dont have much history with Cooler Masters line of products and only thing that I consistently purchased from Cooler Master was aftermarket CPU coolers, considered to be some of the best in the industry. But, now that all these component companies are diving full force into the gaming peripheral market and Im truly excited to see what the Storm will bring (pun intended)."

CM QuickFire Pro Mechanical Keyboard - BCCHardware
     Fri, Jul 06 2012 | 9:45A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Once it was fully unboxed, I noticed the QuickFire Pro is heaver than any other keyboard I have seen. It is about twice as heavy as the keyboard I was using previously. The CM Storm QuickFire Pro weighs 2.86lbs(1300g). Think of that in terms of bacon... That`s almost three packages of your favorite sliced heaven. . ."

Kensington Absolute Power Dual USB Wall Charger Review
     Tue, Jul 03 2012 | 12:58P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Summer is perhaps the only time of the year when pretty much everyone goes on vacations and if you are like me and have more than just one cell phone, MP3/4 player, Bluetooth headset that means taking along with you a large number of AC power chargers and chances are that you will probably forget at least one of those in the process (i know i have in more than just one occasion). Kensington is a well-known brand name mainly because of the countless number of devices out there (including notebooks, LCD screens, NAS devices, HDD enclosures etc.) that feature their security slot but their product line is actually very long and also includes several gadgets that can help make your life a lot easier. One of those gadgets is their Absolute Power Dual USB Wall Charger which we have here with us today.

Addonics CipherUSB @ Techreaction.net
     Wed, Jun 27 2012 | 9:21A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This is the first paragraph you read when clicking the about tab on Addonics website. Kinda does make you gohmm interesting. Making data storage easier. Who doesnt want that? With storage becoming a more talked about topic these days in the tech world its not surprising more, and more companies would want to provide solutions for users storage needs, and wants. Now honestly when we first read the similar to LEGO blocks line we were likeummm so our storage solutions will come in red, blue, and yellow? But in all seriousness providing a line of products that work with each other to maximize storage efficiency to us doesnt sound like such a block head idea. See what what we did there? Ha!"

Rosewill RK-9000RE Mechanical Gaming Keyboard @ techPowerUp
     Tue, Jun 19 2012 | 8:26A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

AviiQ ReadyClips USB Cables Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Jun 11 2012 | 9:06A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just about every USB device once purchases comes with a USB cable. However, any person who has a lot of USB devices can veritably explain that not all USB cables are created equal. We first saw Aviiqs ReadyClips USB cables at CES this year. This trio includes cables with a standard USB A male connector on one end and a micro USB connector (for phones, primarily), mini USB connector (for cameras and such), or an iPod connector."
