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 [...]

With mechanical gaming keyboards being all the rage, you’d be hard-pressed to find a gaming peripherals company without a mechanical gaming keyboard. One company that hasn’t offered one until recently however, is Kingston’s gaming brand, HyperX, which recently came out with their HyperX Alloy FPS gaming keyboard, officially marking their first entry into the mechanical gaming keyboard market.
Like many of their other gaming products, HyperX developed the Alloy FPS based on testing and feedback from the numerous eSports teams they currently sponsor. As a result, the Alloy FPS is a relatively basic keyboard without many of the [...]

Back in 2014, Razer launched their BlackWidow Ultimate Chroma mechanical keyboard which was an instant hit at the time as little competition in the space along with the fact that the BlackWidow Chroma was actually a great mechanical keyboard helped propel it to being one of the most popular gaming keyboards in Razer’s lineup.
Since then, Razer has launched several other Chroma based products including the BlackWidow TE Chroma and BlackWidow X Chroma, leaving the popular BlackWidow Chroma without any updates for the past few years, until now.
As an update to one of Razer’s most popular mechanical keyboards, the recently launched [...]
At CES 2017, AZIO is spicing up the keyboard market with some eccentric keyboard designs.
AZIO Retro 2 Mechanical Keyboard
Say what you want, but Azio’s MK Retro 2 sports the most interesting keyboard designed we’ve seen at CES 2017. The Retro 2 is inspired by the vintage design of the timeless typewriter and sporting the tactile Kailh Blue switches, the keyboard simulates the tactile feel and the sound as well. The Khail Blue switches on the Retro 2 have custom mounts with the LED embedded directly in the center. Though this design does help with lighting distribution, it also means that it’s incompatible with standard Cherry MX [...]
