In a world where software controls all of our lighting effects, Lamptron stood out and gave us a hardware level RGB and fan control in the CM420. With a plethora of connections, it will likely work with whatever RGB fan or strip you have. Don't forget to enter the Giveaway before it ends!
The RBT is set to revolutionize the gaming mouse. This design doesn't look like it makes sense, but I can really believe how great it feels after testing it. If you play competitive online games, the RBT will almost make you feel like you turned on some hacks.
Patriot is releasing a new Gaming Mouse under it's Viper branding. The design looks cool, with RGB lighting, customized weighting system, and tons of buttons for competitive titles that use lots of abilities. The design lends itself to a claw grip to help increase gaming reactions.
You may remember our review of the Quadraclicks RBT Rebel gaming mouse. We have high praises for a bold design that feels like a genuine improvement to gamers everywhere. Their top mouse is pricey, but the budget option is much more friendly to the wallet.
Rosewill offers an excellent keyboard and mouse option with the Neon K51 and M57. They have a ton of features for the price, making them a compelling choice. The RGB lighting looks excellent and they also had great software. Overall, these peripherals would work well for gaming or work.
Have you ever wanted hardware level control of your RGB lighting and fans? Lamptron has that. Have you ever wanted one controller to work with every proprietary connection for RGB and fans? Turns out they have that too with the CL420.
Light strips are a great way to shine up a build, but most of them require software control to run in the background. Lamptron is offering a new option with hardware control of RGB LED strips. The options work pretty well and the best part is that they only need a power connection.
E-Win offers a decent amount of features for the Hero Series HRD gaming chair. The overall comfort is pretty good, but there are some minor details that hold the chair back. The biggest issue is that the price is prohibitive, making other chairs a bit more attractive.
Corsair Takes their Lighting Control to the Next Level, Reveals Awesome Concept Cases, and Launches Water Resistant Keyboard
As if there wasn't enough cool things happening at Computex, Corsair took their fans and cases to a new level. With intricate RGB control, the lighting on their fans looked fantastic. Their concept computer cases looked great, but may not ever release. Water resistant keyboard? Yes please!
Gaming chairs with the racing style are pretty common, but competition is heating up with brands bringing more affordable options. Ewin just expanded their lineup, and which can work out well if they have quality, comfortable chairs.
Trying to understand clicking with the base of your fingers, instead of the tips is different. Once you get used to it, the RBT seems to give a genuine advantage over traditional mice. It seems to speed up reaction in competitive online gaming, and relieves tension in the wrist and forearm.
In full disclosure, I did sit in the Corsair T1 Race Gaming after spending a lot of time trekking over Las Vegas for CES. On the other hand, that chair was incredibly comfortable! Not it's released at a price similar to other designs on the market.

Cougar has a solid gaming chair with their Armor. It has a good level of comfort and a decent amount of features like 4D armrests. Some aesthetic materials may not hold up as well to time, but it's nothing that would effect the use of sitting for long periods.
There is nothing inherently wrong with the mouse. We’ve been using it for decades now and with the exception of a few outlandish ergonomic mice, the overall design hasn’t changed. For average, light, infrequent use, there will be no noticeable repercussion. However, competitive gaming has greatly increased the frequency in which we move, click, and overall abuse the mouse. This has led to carpal tunnel and repetitive stress injuries, giving the active pro-gamer a severely limited career. Unfortunately, there are no ergonomic mice that can perform on a pro gaming level. Gamer and inventor Qeric Koten believes he’s found a solution. Qeric’s R.B.T. (Right ‘Bove Touch, pronounced “rabbit”) was not just developed for ergonomics, but for speed and function. The R.B.T. ‘s most important feature is the point of contact for clicking. A traditional mouse uses the distal phalanges, pads of the fingertips, to press in the left and right click. What the R.B.T. does differently is move the point of contact of clicking to the proximal phalanges, the first section of finger closest to the palm. The result is less strain on wrist ligaments (fewer muscles needed to click) and faster reaction speeds. Qeric says that this change in clicking point reduces the distance that the nervous system has to reach in order to react. In essence, shorter distance equals faster clicks. While speed is key, ergonomics remains an important part of it’s allure. The unique design hopes to ...
