Native Union JUMP Cable Review
     Tue, Mar 29 2016 | 9:01A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Portable power banks and cables for our mobile devices are extremely popular. Almost everyone I know has a portable power bank. We want to be connected all of the time and in doing so we diminish our devices batteries before we have time to charge them up. If you are an iPhone user I’m sure you’ve gone through your fair share of cables. Plain and simple Apple makes horrible cables. Well Native Union has a device that solves both of these problems. It is their JUMP Cable which they say is the “world’s first 2-in-1 charging cable and portable battery booster.” So you have a portable power bank that also has a charging cable built in. But unlike many power banks that have a cable built in this one allows for to connect your device and also connect to an external power source to charge up the power bank and your device at the same time! The JUMP cable seems like the perfect accessory to have with you at all times, let’s take a look and see if that is true!"

     Mon, Mar 28 2016 | 1:18P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The mechanical keyboard market is fiercely competitive, even more so when it comes to the high-end ranges, where prices can often be around £150 for a fully equipped RGB unit, especially if you’re looking for something with a lot of gaming-focused features. QPAD have a solid reputation for creating great gaming peripherals are competitive prices, at least in terms of spec vs spec on their rivals products.

     Thu, Mar 24 2016 | 4:41P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fnatic, one of the biggest and longest operating competitive gaming organizations in Europe and famous amongst gamers around the world, has entered the hardware business with Fnatic Gear. The acquisition of gaming peripheral company Func has given Fnatic access to a team and process to develop products for professional gamers who demand responsiveness, control, and reliability.

Das Division Zero X40 Pro Gaming Mechanical Keyboard Review
     Wed, Mar 23 2016 | 9:03A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Metadot, now more commonly referred to as Das Keyboard, has released numerous mechanical keyboard models, both with and without labeled keycaps. They remain popular options because of Das Keyboard's reputation for quality, though by neglecting the gaming category, Das Keyboard left the door wide open for the competition, and they've rushed through it like a crowd lined up at Walmart on Black Friday. While once a niche category, every peripheral maker on the planet seems to be releasing mechanical keyboard models to gamers at this point. You can now count Das Keyboard among them. The pioneering company created a new gaming division called Division Zero, and its first mechanical keyboard to come from that division is the Division Zero X40 Pro...

     Tue, Mar 22 2016 | 9:00A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Upon receipt of notification that our Singlecue was on the way we were quite excited. This was definitely one of the stand outs from Pepcom/CES 2016 to us and one product we were very interested in reviewing. Singlecue is a smart home product that claims the ability to control all your smart home devices with a single finger (cue).

Tesoro Excalibur V2 Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Mon, Mar 21 2016 | 5:12P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Tesoro may not be the first name you think of when it comes to buying a new gaming keyboard, but given the successes they’ve delivered in the past, they’re certainly a name you should be looking at more often. Just check out some of the kick-ass keyboards we’ve reviewed from Tesoro over the years and you’ll get an idea why I’m excited about their new Excalibur V2, such as the Lobera Supreme, Lobera Spectrum RGB, the seriously cool Tizona Elite and of course, the predecessor of today’s review sample, the Excalibur.

Aennon LED Motion Sensor Night Light Review @ Technogog
     Sat, Mar 19 2016 | 11:13P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Up for review today I’ve got another motion sensor style light but this one is very different from the others I’ve looked at as it’s round like ball and it can be rotated all around to position the light anywhere you need it. The light is from Aennon and it doesn’t really have a special name, just motion sensor light and it works well. The light uses three AA batteries and they last a very long time. Read on to learn more… "

Cooler Master's MasterKeys Pro L and Pro S
     Tue, Mar 15 2016 | 6:22P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master's MasterKeys Pro L and Pro S keyboards put Cherry MX RGB switches in no-nonsense chassis. They also expose most of their customization mojo through on-board shortcuts. We put our fingers to the keycaps to see how these boards perform.

Cooler Master MasterKeys Pro L Keyboard Review: Spectrum Ad Infinitum
     Tue, Mar 15 2016 | 6:22P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Cooler Master MasterKeys Pro L is a full-size keyboard that defies convention with its bright Cherry MX RGB LED backlight on a traditional conservative frame. This dichotomy is inherent in the MasterKeys Pro L's design for it is comfortable for both work or play; as a productivity workhorse or as a PC gaming controller. It has NKRO over USB …

Cooler Master 'Master Keys Pro S' Cherry MX RGB Keyboard Review
     Tue, Mar 15 2016 | 6:21P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While there has been no shortage of RGB keyboards over the last year, there has been a distinct lack of RGB keyboards with Cherry MX switches. Fortunately, it looks like that is starting to change as Cooler Master is launching two new keyboards today- the Master Keys Pro S and Master Keys Pro L, both of which make use of Cherry’s RGB switches. Today, we are taking a look at the S model, which makes use of a ten keyless compact design.

Cooler Master MasterKeys Pro L @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Mar 15 2016 | 6:21P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As most of you guys have most likely noticed, I get a wide variety of keyboards coming into the office. Especially now that everyone and their mom has gotten into the mechanical keyboard market. With that the list of keyboards that make it into heavy use as a keyboard my wife and I take to events, test rigs, or my main PC is actually much smaller. Cooler Master has been one of the main brands you would find on that list and that is because from the day they introduced the original QuickFire Rapid I have loved their keyboards. They keep their keyboards simple with nothing flashy but the quality for the most part has been there. When they moved on to the Rapid-I I really started to get excited about the features they were introducing but with the XTI I was a little disappointed. Not because it was a bad keyboard, in fact it’s a great keyboard, I just really wanted it to be full RGB or have white backlighting like the Rapid-I. Well all of the waiting is finally over. For the past few weeks I’ve been using their new MasterKeys Pro L full RGB keyboard and today I’m finally allowed to unzip my lips and talk about it. So I’m going to run down through its features, talk about how it performed, then break down where it fits in the market. All of that will hopefully help you find out if this is the keyboard for you, check it out!

Zalman ZM-K700M
     Tue, Mar 15 2016 | 6:20P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Zalman has been making value-oriented keyboards for some time now. The ZM-K700M is their first attempt at a high-end keyboard. It is completely driverless and manages to offer extensive lighting effects and macro support, but is that enough to justify a $140 price tag?
