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.

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.
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.
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.
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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. [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
