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 ...
The term module can mean little more than changing surface pieces, but EpicGear takes it to a whole new meaning with the Morpha X. You can choose whether you like optical or laser for gaming, which switch type is best for clicks, and you can change weight. It's practically two mice in one!
Earbuds can lack heavily in the bass department, but Rosewill found a way to excel with theirs. The EX-700 really shines, but the EX-500 isn't a slouch either. If you want high quality audio in a small package, these units will surprise you. The EX-500 isn't as comfortable though.
You guys are going to be seeing more EpicGear coverage in the future here. I’ve been rushing through reviews and sometimes, that causes me to miss the full picture at first impression. For instance, I already awarded the Defiant Keyboard an Editor’s Choice Award, but having been able to use it longer has proven that at least in my book, EpicGear has better switches than CherryMX Red, Browns or Blue. I won’t make that mistake with the MorphaX! Check out the press release for a mouse that truly defines what modular should mean and stay posted for the review coming later on. Taipei, Taiwan – March 21, 2017 – EpicGear, the leading brand in professional gaming peripherals, today announced the latest innovation the MORPHA X RGB Fully Modular Gaming Mouse. Designed and based on feedback from the gaming enthusiast and community, MORPHA X RGB Fully Modular Gaming Mouse implements MSCTM (Modular-Sensor-Cartridge) for easy switching laser and optical sensor, as well as MSSTM (Modular-Switch-Structure) which enables the swapping of switches with different click resistance. MORPHA X, the flagship RGB modular gaming mouse redefines modular gaming mouse and further expands EpicGear’s range of gaming peripherals. MSCTM (Modular-Sensor-Cartridge) and MSSTM (Modular-Switch-Structure) Designed with MSCTM (Modular-Sensor-Cartridge), MORPHA X allows easy switching between optical and laser sensors. Using the included Modular Senor Cartridges, the MORPHA X equipped with...
Every gamer needs a good gaming chair, but most chairs are way too expensive. OPSeat is changing the market with the Master Series. The tall back and straight sitting position is much better for ergonomics. It may not be the most comfortable chair, but it's well worth the price.
The Zora isn't much to look at by itself, but the price and performance make it a very compelling option for a gaming mouse. The Skorpios Bungee looks cool, but is more suited to those who have little desk space. EpicGear shows they want to compete with the market if they can keep up their momentum.
Getting a mechanical keyboard is the first step to better gaming. Finding a keyboard that lowers reaction time is better and that's exactly what the EpicGear Defiant does. Their MMS Keyswitches have a low actuation point making them great competitive online matches.
