Coolermaster Quickfire XT Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Fri, Apr 25 2014 | 5:03P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mechanical keyboards are more popular than ever with the gaming community, their high precision and high quality make them well suited to many things, but their prowess in gaming is where they really shine. Cooler Master have crafted many of the best mechanical gaming keyboards on the market and their latest effort, the Quick Fire XT looks set to expand on their already exciting range. Packed full of features that make it an ideal choice for gaming, as well as general day-to-day use, the Quite Fire XT looks like a great product, but the most exciting thing of all has to be the price tag. Available for just under £72 including shipping, which is obviously expensive, but still representative of cheap for a mechanical gaming keyboard, many of which cost in excess for £100. The cost is often a reflection of the switches used, Cherry MX are not cheap, but in terms of quality and performance, you get what you pay for. The Quick Fire XT comes in a choice of popular Cherry MX switches, Red, Green, Brown, or Blue. The model we have in the office today is the MX Blue variant, but keep in mind that availability of certain switches will vary depending on region. MX Blue are a pretty specialist choice for keyboards, they’re often quite loud as they offer a strong tactile “click” when pressed, this gives a satisfying tactile sensation while typing, but is often regarded as noisy switch as the click is certainly audible as well as physical. The Quick Fire XT comes nicely packaged in the usual CM Storm colours and features a stylish picture of the keyboard on the front of the box as well as a small picture that details the switch type (MX Blue).

Blackfire CLAMPLIGHT LED Flashlight Review @ TestFreaks
     Fri, Apr 18 2014 | 2:07P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up for review today I have something a bit different, a flashlight from a company called Blackfire. Normally we cover tech products, but we do cover everything really, but flashlights these days can be considered high tech when you really look at them with high intensity LEDs and futuristic designs. The flashlight I have today is called the Clamplight and it`s what I would call a utility light as as its name suggests, it has a clamp built-in so you can attach the light most anywhere to make sure you have light where you need it most. So read on to learn about a very versatile product..."

ROCCAT is making its debut into the thriving mechanical keyboard market with three variants of its Ryos MK Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. In this review, Benchmark Reviews will be testing the top of the line ROCCAT Ryos MK Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (model# ROC-12-851-BN – US Layout) with Cherry MX Brown switches and individual backlit keys.

Cherry MX Flavored Typing
     Thu, Apr 10 2014 | 1:44P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As a species, we've come a long way from the days of carving notes into stone. While our ancestors used chisel and rock, we now use keyboards to hammer out our thoughts and anything that needs to be documented. Some of us spend hours a day sitting in front of a PC, a large portion of which is dedicated to punching keystrokes at a frenzied pace. There's a good chance that your keyboard is actively used more than any other peripheral or accessory, save for your monitor, yet some people give little thought to their plank, as if to suggest that all keyboards are essentially the same. Professional typists know better. So does Metadot, which started to build a better keyboard nearly a decade ago. You know it as the Das Keyboard and through several generations of refinements, it's evolved into what's now called the Das Keyboard 4 in both Professional (labeled key caps) and Ultimate (blank key caps) variants...

Gumstick Smartphone Stand Review @ Bjorn3d.com
     Wed, Apr 09 2014 | 2:39A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Phones today do a lot more than just make phone calls. You can play games, listen to music, read books and watch videos on them. Some of these activities are best done without having to hold the phone all the time. If you are watching a movie or listening to music you might not want to have to hold it and instead want to prop it up somehow. There are a lot of stands available for the bigger tablets but not as much for phones. At least not many that are small and as portable as the phone itself. This is where the Gumstick Smartphone Stand comes in. It is a product that was started on Kickstarter and funded there and now is being shipped to backers and also sold on at least their website."

Corsair Raptor K40 review
     Wed, Apr 02 2014 | 9:03A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the rather colorful Corsair Raptor K40 with dome based keys and a rather wide variety of colors for backlighting of this gaming keyboard. The K40 is the first in the Raptor series. It has a very recognizable look and concept, but it adds some more features, it has LED back-lit keys that you can customize colors wise. Let's have a peek shall we? Read the full review right here.

Reeven Justice RC-1204
     Sun, Mar 23 2014 | 9:01A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"My experience with Reeven certainly leaves me with a positive feeling. I was not familiar with Reeven products, but the Justice RC-1204 gets the job done and looks great while doing it. So what do I like about it? To start, I like the size. It is not so massive that it smothers you motherboard. Nevertheless, it is large enough to handle the heat of a mild overclock, which is nice. Next is the way the fan attaches to the fin stack - I like the four plastic clips. Sometimes the usual metal clips can be a pain, but this new refreshing style of plastic clip gets my attention.”
