One of the most cost-efficient ways to improve the looks of a keyboard is to slap on some pretty lights. This is an easy way to boost the “wow” factor without complicated modifications and additional investment from the manufacturer.
That’s exactly what Thermaltake did with its hugely popular Poseidon Z keyboard.

Modular Gaming Headphones? Yup.
Many of today’s peripherals now have a ton of customization options. Parts can be removed, added, or swapped depending on the user’s preference. However, the gaming headset scene hasn’t seen a whole lot of customizability yet. Sure some companies have added the option for users to switch out the appearance of their headsets, but it’s rare to see a gaming headset where most of the parts can be removed and replaced depending on a user’s preference.
That being said, then compared to everything else that currently exists on the market, the Plantronics RIG 500E (E for E-Sports Edition) is definitely in a [...]
While the gaming peripherals market is saturated with all the mice one could possibly want , we always welcome a good blend of price and performance. Introducing the SteelSeries Rival, a basic, bare-bone mice from SteelSeries that has a few nifty surprises under its hood.
There’re several interesting specs worth mentioning. Instead of using AVAGO sensors like many of today’s gaming mice, the Rival touts the Pixart PWM 3310 Optical sensor with max DPI of 6400. Since it uses the tried and true optical technology, in theory, it should have very little to no acceleration. The sensor isn’t the Rival’s only highlight; It [...]
