Genius DeathTaker Gaming Mouse Review

Genius DeathTaker Gaming Mouse Review

Genius is a new player in the hardware market, and the underdog usually has something to prove. Genius has released a new MMO/RTS gaming mouse that costs between $40-80 and yet has features that rival much more expensive digital rodents.

Cooler Master Storm Recon Gaming Mouse Review

Cooler Master Storm Recon Gaming Mouse Review

The problem with many good gaming peripherals is that they are rather expensive. Cooler Master wants to change that by delivering a good gaming mouse with lots of features without spending a lot of money.

Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard 3000 Review

Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard 3000 Review

We are looking at the Microsoft Comfort Curve 3000 keyboard, which is apparently the bigger (yet somehow smaller) brother of the Comfort Curve 2000 keyboard.

NZXT Avatar S Gaming Mouse Review

NZXT Avatar S Gaming Mouse Review

Gaming mice can be expensive, though, and it really sucks to purchase an expensive mouse just to find out it wasn’t as good as you thought. The Avatar S mouse has been out for a while, but still holds strong because it is one of the cheapest gaming-grade mice you can find.

Razer Imperator 5600dpi Gaming Mouse Review

Razer Imperator 5600dpi Gaming Mouse Review

One problem with gaming mice is that they’re usually big, heavy, and have lots of buttons. If a mouse is full-featured then is usually comes with a similarly full-featured size. Usually small and ultra-light mice are given away with laptops or are intended for office use, and thus not very powerful or useful. Gaming laptops […]

Logitech G700 Wireless Laser Mouse Review

Logitech G700 Wireless Laser Mouse Review

  I’ve been using computer mice pretty much ever since Microsoft’s first ball mouse.  Since they became popular in home computing, there have been many different types to appeal to consumers.  We have seen the rise (and fall) of mouse balls, optical technology, lasers, increased resolution, LCD displays, ergonomic designs, wireless technology, onboard memory, programmable buttons, and […]

Mionix Naos 3200dpi Gaming Mouse Review

Mionix Naos 3200dpi Gaming Mouse Review

Nearly everyone who uses a computer also lays their hands on a mouse most of the day.  If you have your choice of hand-rodent, then why not get one that is suitable for both gaming and productivity, and has a great ergonomic feel?  Many “gaming-grade” mice usually don’t have the great ergonomics of a comfortable […]

Rosewill RK-800G Keyboard Review

Rosewill RK-800G Keyboard Review

We’ve reviewed several great products from Rosewill (see our list of Rosewill reviews here).  This brand is Newegg’s own, so you’ll find them exclusively at newegg.com.  Most technically-savvy people are comfortable ordering  from them, not only because of their great deals, but their selection and service.  The Rosewill brand products we’ve reviewed have always been good, so we were […]

OCZ Sabre OLED Gaming Keyboard Review

OCZ Sabre OLED Gaming Keyboard Review

When you see something new and innovative like an OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) keyboard, one can’t help but compare it to the expensive Optimus Maximus keyboard. The one feature that such a keyboard desprately needs is a drool-guard, as every technophile would hover over its beauty.  Unfortunately most of us don’t have over $1000 […]

Razer Sphex Mousepad Review

Razer Sphex Mousepad Review

Remember a few generations ago when civilization thought it had arrived once there were flying cars and lasers all over the place?  Well I’m still waiting on my H.P. Hovercraft, but laser technology is so common that it’s in just about everything, including computer mice.  The use of a laser sensor (or two) is used […]

Silverstone Raven Gaming Mouse Review

Silverstone Raven Gaming Mouse Review

PC gaming is one of the biggest slices of the multi-billion dollar gaming industry.  As such, there are a surprising number of gaming mice available for the PC… some would say there are too many.  These peripherals are multi-use devices, having a lot of buttons and high sensitivity for games, and also used for desktop […]

ATEN VS481A 4-port HDMI Switch Review

ATEN VS481A 4-port HDMI Switch Review

We have reviewed ATEN products before, as they make great KVM switches. The last one we reviewed was geared towards the PC gamer and included DMI and audio switching. Anyone who has been around home theater for the past twenty years has seen the industry change the video cables from RF cables, RCA, S-Video, component […]

Adesso CyberTablet 6400 Tablet

Adesso CyberTablet 6400 Tablet

As a graphic artist, I am familiar with digital graphics tablets.  Most digital artists are familiar with Wacom products, but they tend to be very pricey.  The price point of a tablet has a bit of “snob” factor to it, as professional tablets start around $350 and “lesser” entry-level tablets can be had for under $100.  When I […]

Ulti-Mat Breathe F-X3 Oversized Cloth Mousepad Review

Ulti-Mat Breathe F-X3 Oversized Cloth Mousepad Review

Nearly a decade ago, Tony Montana and computer mice had one thing in common: they were judged by the quality of their balls.  Thicker, heavier balls were better at tracking on your desk, but most people had to use cloth mousepads to get the most grip out of their mice. Since the dawn of optical […]

SteelSeries Xai Gaming Mouse

SteelSeries Xai Gaming Mouse

Readers who keep track of me (yeah, both of you) know that my favorite gaming mouse of all time is the SteelSeries Ikari laser mouse.  Not only are there great professional touches, but the mouse is simple to use and provides effective features not found in any other gaming mouse… but still it could be […]

NZXT Avatar 2600dpi Gaming Mouse Review

NZXT Avatar 2600dpi Gaming Mouse Review

NZXT has burst onto the PC modding scene with several innovative products, like their Tempest Gamer Case, Sentry LX Fan controller and other cases and peripherals.  NZXT is not only known for providing great design and quality, but also for their great value.  Other peripheral manufacturers have dipped their toes into the pool of gaming […]

Razer Salmosa 3G Gaming Mouse Review

Razer Salmosa 3G Gaming Mouse Review

I’ve been trying for the last year to get my girlfriend into gaming.  No dice.  She’s just not that kind of person, I guess.  She likes playing Daxter on her PSP, but that’s about all I can get her to do.  No WoW, no L4D, but I did hook up a gamepad to her computer […]

Enermax Aurora Micro Aluminum Keyboard Review

Enermax Aurora Micro Aluminum Keyboard Review

Some users just like really tiny keyboards.  Personally I am an ergonomic fan, so the wider my hands can be apart, the better.  For those who like tiny keyboards (programmers love them for some odd reason), then you’ll be glad to know that there’s finally one that’s built like a tank: the Enermax Aurora Micro.  […]

SteelSeries World of Warcraft Mouse Review

SteelSeries World of Warcraft Mouse Review

I think it’s pretty cool when a game designer hooks up with a hardware designer to create a device whose sole purpose is a single game.  Blizzard and SteelSeries have gotten together to create a mouse dedicated for MMORPGs, namely World of Warcraft.  But what could a simple mouse offer the hardcore WoW gamer?  Not […]

WolfKing Trooper MVP Gaming Mouse Review

WolfKing Trooper MVP Gaming Mouse Review

Every day, the makers of gaming gear churn out the new and improved.  The latest 100,000Mhz Ultrapolling keyboard.  The highest resolution 14 Million dpi mouse that vibrates as you rub it counter-clockwise.  Headsets that allow you to experience 7.1 digital surround sound whilst chatting with the built-in telepathic sensor.  Chairs with mini subwoofers built in […]
