When it boils down to it, one of the most important components of your new gaming PC is the keyboard. Aside from the mouse, the keyboard, and maybe a gaming controller there’s literally nothing else that translates what you want to do to the PC. Unless you invest mind control… or something.
Over the past few years, one of the most popular categories of gaming keyboards have been the mechanical gaming keyboards. Unlike the cheap, soft and mushy rubber dome keyboards, mechanical gaming keyboards offer a better feel, more consistent actuation, better overall performance, and better reliability.
That said, with the increased popularity of [...]

Awhile back we had posted about our E3 hands on experience with the Stratus XL, SteelSeries’ answer to the [...]

The Stratus XL promises to provide a premium solution in a wireless controller market over-saturated with cheaply made hardware and glitch ridden software.

While we were browsing their suite, SteelSeries showed us the new SteelSeries Sensei Wireless Gaming Mouse along with the SteelSeries Stratus Wireless Gaming Controller.

For over the past decade, Razer has become on of the most well known gaming peripheral manufacturers in the world, which is why when Razer decided in late 2011 to jump in headfirst as a systems integrator with the custom designed Razer Blade, I was quite skeptical. After all, it’s not everyday you see a company go out and spend the R&D to custom design a new laptop from the ground up. However to my surprise, despite the Blade’s exorbitant pricing, under-powered specifications, and so-so reviews by many media outlets, the first generation Razer Blade was actually very well received by the market thanks to its sleek, unique, portable, and very exclusive [...]
