Patriot is pushing into the gaming market a little harder with the Viper V570 Blackout. The ergonomics aren't the best, but the trade off is a mouse that seems to improve precision and reaction. The RGB lighting is amazing and the button layout gives gamers a lot of ability options.
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.
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.
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.

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!
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...
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.
CES 2017 coverage marches right along with another great set of show floors from some great companies. Geil showed off some excellent peripherals, Deepcool blew our minds with awesome looking cases and fans, and MSI continues to deliver great motherboards. However, we finally got to catch up with AMD and get a solid look at what to expect with the Ryzen and Vega releases. We have a little bit longer to wait before full specs arrive, but confidence is certainly rising in what team Red is trying to deliver. As always, check out the video below for the full details and don’t forget to leave some comments in the forums!
Update: I found a tweet to a Youtube link that gives some more info on the Duel headset. Check it out below! What started as one mouse review turned into a bunch shortly after. I’ve had the privilege to try out numerous designs, features and styles during my escapades as a hardware reviewer. While some designs are excellent and deserve special levels of praise, the FNATIC Flick is the simple gaming mouse I keep coming back to. Most of this is due to the fact that I’m too set in my ways to really work out a new button configuration, but the rest is due to it being the best feeling mouse I’ve used to date. In light of that, it’s no surprise to tell you that I’m really excited for the new mouse and headset FNATIC is releasing. The Clutch G1 doesn’t look like it’s going to change much from it’s predecessor, the Flick. Both use a modest Pixart 3310 sensor that doesn’t have the crazy DPI settings the 3360 does, but it was always fast enough for me. It looks like it’s going to be bit larger and have an extra DPI button so that it will cater to FPS players a bit more. That said, each person has a unique taste when it comes to how a mouse feels so larger might be better in general as well. FNATIC is also unleashing the Duel TMA-2 headphones on us. Details are minimal at the time being, but the modular design sounds interesting and I’m hoping for the same level of quality I found with the Flick. Needless to say, the...
Introduction We’ve seen several mice from Swedish company Mionix, and we’ve been impressed. The Naos remains one of the most comfortable mice I’ve ever grasped (admittedly, it’s my go-to daily mouse of choice), and we’ve seen models from Mionix that sport minor differences and improvements along the way. Why mess with a winning formula, it seems. One of the differences is certainly in terms of cost. It should come as no surprise that everyone doesn’t necessarily want to splurge for the flagship Naos, and for those who want the quality and features but a more affordable price tag, the Mionix Castor is what we’re looking at today. The Castor is a right-handed mouse, and while it captures the shapely essence of the vaunted Naos, it also seems to share some lineage from the impressive Avior, creating a subtle new shape that’s suitable for palm, claw, and fingertip-grip preferences. There are a couple other differences, such as a 10,000 DPI optical engine rather than laser, a simplified lighting and feature set, and a lower price tag than the premium Naos or Avior. Sounds good so far. Let’s take a closer look at the Mionix Castor and find out if it’s worthy your consideration.
We're looking at the Azio EXO1 mouse and MGK1 mechanical illuminated keyboard, two devices that seem very capable on their own. However, when used together, the matching gunmetal finish and white illumination speak volumes for sleek aesthetics. Hey, we love innovation and cool features just as much as anyone, but good looks will only get you so far. Let's take a closer look at the Azio EXO1 and MGK1 see if they can manage to impress.
