Gaming peripherals maker, Bloody Gaming, had a fairly sizable presence at E3 2017, so we stopped by to take a quick look at a few of their upcoming products.
Bloody B975 Gaming Keyboard
Arriving at the booth, I was quickly directed to the Bloody B975 gaming keyboard, the newest Bloody gaming keyboard using LK (Light Strike) Libra optical infrared switches. For those unfamiliar, Light Strike switches are new infrared laser based switches which are superior in performance and durability over traditional mechanical switches. This is due to its lack of metal contact leaves and instead when the key is depressed, a plate blocks [...]
We had the pleasure of hanging out with gaming peripherals maker Cougar recently at E3 2017 to check out some of their latest and greatest gaming keyboards.
Cougar Puri TKL
The latest and what I think is the greatest is the Cougar Puri TKL. The Cougar Puri TKL is a compact, Tenkeyless keyboard for eSports gamers who want a smaller, more portable gaming keyboard to take on the go. The Cougar Puri TKL looked and felt high quality and Cougar displayed the keyboard with even more durable metal keycaps installed on the arrow keys and the gaming zone (WASD keys).
Cougar was also happy to report that they’re only using the highest [...]
PC gaming peripherals maker Mionix is spicing up its product catalog with brand new peripherals, super colorful accessories, and one of the strangest marketing campaigns we’ve seen in a very, very long time. Let me explain.
If you’re wondering what a lobster, donuts, stacks of cash, and a drink with an umbrella on it have to do with peripherals, don’t worry. I have no idea either.
The Minoix Wei, launched under the new “Get a Fresh Desk” marketing campaign, is Mionix’s newest mechanical keyboard. Despite what looks like a gaming keyboard, the Mionix Wei seems to be marketed towards a hip web developer or an insane [...]
Although Logitech’s wirelessly charging mousepad was the big reveal for Logitech at E3, Logitech also made a new announcement in their headset lineup with the new mid-range G433 gaming headset.
The new Logitech G433 gaming headset is designed for those looking for a multi-purpose gaming headset that can not only perform well while gaming, but will also look good if you decide to take it on your bus ride to work. Available in Triple Black, Fire Red, and Royal Blue, the Logitech G433 features a hybrid-mesh material that Logitech claims will offer better durability and style compared to typical plastic materials and coatings.
Ask anyone who’s played a game in VR and they’ll immediately tell you that one of the biggest issues with VR today is that the headset needs to be wired in. Not only does this create a potential safety hazard, but it also significantly detracts from the experience, especially if you end up pulling your brand new $3,000 gaming laptop off the table in the heat of battle.
In order to solve this issue, DisplayLink recently demo’ed their DisplayLink XR wireless VR system which will allow gamers to use their existing HTC Vive headset, Oculus Rift and other VR headsets wirelessly.
DisplayLink’s XR system is based on Intel’s WiGig (Wireless [...]
As always, our friends at Razer had some big introductions at E3 this year with their new Razer Blade Stealth and the Razer Thresher Ultimate Gaming Headset.
Mid-2017 Razer Blade Stealth
On their systems side, Razer’s big announcement is the new Razer Blade Stealth. The biggest change for the Razer Blade Stealth is its appearance. While the traditional Razer Blade Stealth is far from being the most “gamer” looking laptop out there, it still has a hard time blending into a meeting room with its black and green color scheme. As such, Razer introduced their new Gunmetal grey color that’s a lot more boardroom friendly with its [...]
At E3 2017, LucidSound invited us to their suite to show off several new gaming headsets.
The LucidSound LS25 eSports Gaming Headset is the wired cousin of the wireless LucidSound LS30.

Volume can be adjusted by simply twisting on the earcup. The LucidSound LS25 features a 3.5mm jack which is compatible with PCs, smartphones and major gaming consoles including the PS4, XBox One S, and Nintendo Switch.
There’s currently no release [...]
Year after year, wireless gaming peripherals companies launch new wireless gaming mice, and year after year, the mice always have the same problems: they always run out of juice at the worst possible time and there’s always a slight latency that’s simply too much to ignore for serious gamers.
In a recent announcement at E3 2017, Logitech attempts to solve these issues with their new Logitech Litespeed and PowerPlay technologies. Litespeed is Logitech’s proprietary wireless technology where Logitech claims their highly optimized 2.4GHz wireless connection combined with a 1ms report rate minimizes latency for “competition-level twitch [...]

Not too long ago, we reviewed the HyperX Alloy FPS, an excellent mechanical gaming keyboard for those looking for simple, portable, heavy duty gaming keyboard for both at home and on the go. Unlike many of today’s gaming keyboards, HyperX bucked the trend by going with a more back to basics design, which ultimately proved to be a winner.
Today, we’ll be reviewing a similar mechanical keyboard, this time from Nixeus, a company most well known for its inexpensive yet well equipped monitors. Nixeus’s offering, the Nixeus Moda Pro, is designed for a more general user those looking for a simple, durable mechanical keyboard that not only offers [...]
