Corsair K68 RGB

In most keyboard reviews, the intro gives you the spiel on how important it is to have a “gaming” keyboard in order to play PC games. Such keyboards emphasize the X number of milliseconds their fancy switches will save you on reaction times. If you’re one of the many people who have switched from rubber dome to mechanical switches, you’ll ... Read More »

Contour Unimouse

Neither mice nor keyboards are good for you. Orthopedic surgeons will tell you that ever since typewriters, and subsequently computer keyboards, became ubiquitous, repetitive strain injuries of the hands and arms have become common later in life. Many computer users choose to ignore this problem, because in part they assume nothing can be done about it, and because they believe ... Read More »

Cougar Surpassion FPS Mouse

We understand why some gaming peripheral makers prefer to forgo configuration software. It’s costly in terms of personnel and development time. Then, there’s the need for regular maintenance, upgrades, and tweaks for new products. But when it’s done well, it’s not just a helpful tool. It can also, in the long term, be a major marketing point, as Corsair, Logitech, Razer, and ... Read More »

Kinesis Freestyle Edge

The split keyboard isn’t a new concept any more than ergonomics is a new area of research. As far back as 1926, in a paper entitled “A Rationalization of the Typewriter and Its Operation,” a certain E. A. Klockenberg discussed experiments he’d conducted on subjectively perceived strain in typists’ forearms. His conclusion, after presenting much data: the strain was real, ... Read More »

Roccat Isku+ Force FX

The proliferation of mechanical keyboards targeted at gamers has dramatically increased the number of competitive features you’ll find on keyboards. It has created fierce competition, which has driven prices down a bit (although good mechanical switches are still relatively costly), but, in the end, it appears to have given keyboard manufacturers just two choices: Either to compete in the heavily saturated mechanical keyboard ...

Alienware Elite Gaming Mouse (AW958)

For gamers, fancy keyboards and fancy mice go together like Doritos and Mountain Dew. Of course, there’s a lot less surface area available to snazz up a mouse, so the challenge of creating something truly impressive can be daunting for manufacturers. Alienware’s Elite Gaming Mouse AW958 ($89.99, discounted to $79.99 online at this writing in late January 2018) makes a serious attempt ... Read More »

Alienware Pro Gaming Keyboard (AW768)

Alienware needs no introduction: its keyboards, mice, and monitors do a commendable job of living up to the gaming PC line’s image and quality. Even those gentle but insistent angles in its product design, often accented with the triangular pattern so reminiscent of a flux capacitor, visually suggest blazing speed and unlimited potential. Of course, whether Alienware systems outfitted with an Alienware ... Read More »

Razer Basilisk

Last month, in a review of the Cougar Revenger S, we considered how companies shouting hype in a crowded field end up desensitizing buyers to claims, including accurate ones—how people assume an apartment complex named Oak Grove has no oaks, even if it does. In a category as crowded as gaming mice, judging which features are real and which are ... Read More »

Azio Retro Classic Mechanical Keyboard

When it comes to product design in the tech world, most devices have a decidedly sleek, modern quality that, even now, conveys a sense of the future. Look at a gaming laptop sometime if you don’t believe us. But some tech companies have occasionally introduced gadgets with contrary, nostalgic designs that look backward to the past instead of forward. Wireless ... Read More »
