Cherry Announces Gentix Silent Mouse Designed for Quiet Environments

Mouse click sounds aren’t an issue when you’re alone, but they may be annoying when you’re seated close to a co-worker or working in a public space such as a library. Cherry’s new Gentix Silent mouse aims to solve that problem.

Unlike your typical mouse, the Cherry Gentix Silent uses a new Cherry silent switch that eliminates the sound of button clicks. It comes equipped with a 1,000DPI optical sensor, which may not be enough for gamers, but more than enough for office or library work. The ergonomic, symmetrical design is suitable for ambidextrous use and its flat, compact profile also makes it easier to lug around, although you’ll [...]

Cooler Master Masterkeys Pro S RGB Review

Simple, Portable, Durable

Over the years, Cooler Master has grown up quite a bit with their mechanical keyboard designs. Unlike many of the designs of the past, Cooler Master’s new keyboards now focus on a more of the back to basics design approach with minimal frills, but all the functionality you’d want in a mechanical keyboard.

The Cooler Master Masterkeys Pro S is the embodiment of that new design philosophy. Aside from the logo, Cooler Master keyboards appear to have few differentiating factors against its competitors, but as the platitude goes, never judge a keyboard by its cover.

Today we’ll be reviewing one of Cooler Master’s [...]

Samsung T5 2TB Review

64-Layer 3D NAND, USB 3.1 Gen 2

Last year I was fortunate enough to be among the first to review the Samsung T3 Portable SSD. The drive was small, durable, fast, available in capacities up to 2TB, and relatively good looking making it not only my favorite portable SSD, but also my most highly recommended as well.

Of course, with Samsung’s annual release cycles, Samsung recently launched the new Samsung T5 Portable SSD which we’ll be reviewing today.

Razer Lancehead Review

Razer’s Flagship Wireless Gaming Mouse

Several weeks ago, we were able to get our hands on Razer’s new wired ambidextrous eSports grade gaming mouse, the Razer Lancehead Tournament Edition, which we were quite impressed with. While a portion of the advertised features weren’t available at the time of the review (Synapse 3 is required for the Hybrid On-Board functionality), the Razer Lancehead TE still proved to be a fantastic gaming mouse with a flawless sensor, an excellent design and a reasonable price point.

Along with the Lancehead TE, Razer also launched the Razer Lancehead, which we’ll be reviewing today. The main difference between [...]

Review: Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-04 Chassis

Introduction

Corsair recently updated their budget case lineup with the new Carbide SPEC-04, the successor to the Carbide SPEC-03. The Carbide SPEC-04 brings an overhauled design and some extra features yet maintain its budget price point.

For our review today, we received the Corsair Carbide SPEC-04 in black however, it will also come in red and yellow as well. Corsair’s Carbide SPEC case series has always had the design language that screamed gaming, but the fourth iteration of the series, the SPEC-04, is quite a bit different. Whereas previous generation SPEC series cases featured an ultra-aggressive design, the new SPEC-04 features a design that’s a bit [...]

Corsair Gaming K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE Review

The Need for Speed!

Mechanical keyboards have become fairly ubiquitous in today’s market. Likewise, RGB peripherals are pretty much a dime a dozen with pretty much every component company RGB-ifiying everything in their product lineup. From the typical RGB keyboards and mice, to the not so common RGB power supplies, RGB is everywhere, and it is likely here to stay. So, with that said, it’s probably not surprising that pretty much every new “gaming keyboard” does little but combine RGB lighting with mechanical key switches and call it a day. Offering little, if not nothing actually unique to gamers. I mean, what else is there to do?

Well, [...]

Kanto YU4 Review

You-Four

Maybe it’s unprofitable or maybe it’s too technically difficult. Either way, there don’t seem to be too many companies out there making decent high end powered speakers at reasonable prices.

After recently speaking with some of our readers, we were introduced to a Canadian company by the name of Kanto Living, which produces high end desktop speakers similar to those found in Audioengine’s speaker lineup. As we have previously reviewed and have been quite impressed with all of Audioengine’s offerings, we were quite intrigued when we heard about Kanto Living.

Looking at Kanto Living’s website, they make everything from [...]
