Cougar 200K Scissor Gaming Keyboard

Today we're looking at the Cougar 200K Illuminated gaming keyboard, an affordable board that sports rather smart styling and a couple of interesting features, such as lighting effects and anti-ghosting technology. We often see such features on expensive keyboards, but Cougar looks to be targeting gamers who are on a tight budget yet still want something capable. Let's get to it and take a closer look at the Cougar 200K Scissor keyboard.

NZXT DOKO Review

Introduction During CES 2015 this year, NZXT show-cased the DOKO PC Anywhere device. Now this is a product we are not used to seeing from NZXT. They are primarily known for their PC chassis, cooling and accessories line up. But from what we saw during the CES show, we were quite impressed with what this new product offers. One thing that came up in our conversation was why is this portable PC named DOKO? As NZXT explained to us… the word DOKO comes from the Japanese dictionary and means “Where.” So DOKO or “Where” is a device that let’s you take your PC Anywhere in your home or office. In our minds, the first thought was, it’s like the software PC Anywhere…. The NZXT DOKO pretty much does just that, but in a more simplified and easy form factor. Today, we are going to break down the DOKO device and walk with you step by step on how easy it is to use. We will also cover what its capabilities are, including its its limitations and compatibility. Before we do here’s a word from NZXT. Our People React, adapt and be fearless – we’re a group of young people who aspire to be better tomorrow than we are today. We are driven by the yearning to explore, create, change, and push boundaries. Our culture revolves around having a passion to walk off the well-beaten path, and turn away from the status quo.

Cougar 700K Mechanical Gaming Keyboard – Review

Introduction     A few months ago we were invited to review a new gaming mouse from the folks at Cougar: the 700M. The 700m was adjustable, customizable and a pleasure to use. One of the 700m’s advertised features was the ability to interact with other Cougar devices using something called Fusion. This got our attention pretty quickly because what gamer does not want all of his/her peripherals on the same page? It was also somewhat shocking to see Cougar jump headlong into this already saturated market space; however, they have done well by offering competitive products that cover each market segment. The 600M & 600k are a step down from the 700 series products, but they still offer top of the line features; the 500M & 500k offer mid range pricing, and more recently, the 200K and 200M cover the entry level. At the end of the 700M review we mentioned we would be covering the 700k Mechanical keyboard so we could experiment with Fusion. The 700K is the flagship of Cougar’s recently released gaming oriented peripherals. In this review will be focusing on the 700k mechanical keyboard to find out if it is as good as advertised.

Gigabyte Raptor Gaming Mouse

With the Raptor gaming mouse, Gigabyte is targeting a rather specific crowd in the gaming world: those who want a claw-style rodent. We don't see many of these, and the Raptor looks sleek and comes with a few interesting features. Not only is it a claw mouse, but it's also nearly ambidextrous. Interesting, to be sure. But will it alienate mainstream users, or zero in on those who want something special? Let's take a closer look at the Gigabyte Raptor gaming mouse and make the call.

Phanteks Enthoo Mini XL

Introduction: Phanteks has moved to the top of our list as one of the premium manufacturers. Phanteks has been on the forefront as leader in the manufacturing of thermal solutions like high performance fans and air coolers. Phanteks this past year took the industry by surprise, when the company ventured into computer case manufacturing, by introducing for the very first time their award winning Phanteks Enthoo Primo full tower chassis. A chassis that was specifically designed for the computer enthusiast, and water-cooling aficionado. Today what better way than to start our New Year but to have the pleasure of reviewing the Phanteks Enthoo Mini XL and what looks to be a scaled down and smaller version of the acclaimed Enthoo Primo. The Phanteks Enthoo Mini XL sports many of its distinct features and designs, which includes multiple radiator support, modular HD cages, separate PSU area, and all aluminum look. The Phanteks Enthoo Mini XL is available in a satin black windowed version. Try imagining Primo, as it is anything but Mini, in a scaled down version, at a lower price. Without giving too much away the Phanteks Enthoo Mini XL features support for dual operating systems, and for its small size at 260 mm x 550 mm x 480 mm (W x H x D) 10.2in x 21.7in x 18.9in is anything but mini. In addition, these dimensions looks to be more of a mid-size form factor then a mini. The Phanteks Enthoo Mini XL sports a very spacious clean interior, making it very easy to build both air an...
