No Software Here Addressable RGB is taking the world by storm. As a result, many companies have come up with complete systems for lighting customization. Motherboards have software, but products have to support motherboard sync or the 3/4 pin headers. Other companies use external controllers, but those also tend to be proprietary with said company’s products. Lamptron might be the only one providing hardware based lighting control. The CE420 is one of the latest in RGB and fan control, so let’s find out how well it does.
DM1 FPS On the Surface The first thing you’ll notice about the DM1 FPS is that there is no spectacle. Nothing inherently screams, “Look at me! I’m clearly for hardcore gamers.” Gaming mice scarcely fit in a professional environment. Underneath that shell, however, is a suspiciously well performing mouse.
Anda Seat checks off every mark with the King Series Gaming Chair. It's comfortable, well built, appropriate for large gamers, and even has an excellent price to match. If you're looking for a new gaming chair to weather out the long sessions, Anda Seat should be at the top of your list.
Drevo has the BladeMaster Mechanical Gaming Keyboard on a Kickstarter campaign, and they destroyed their goal in the period of about a day. Sure, it's a nice peripheral, but how does a Genius-Knob make it the Ultimate gaming keyboard? It must be doing something right.
SilverStone gave an easy, affordable option to add addressable RGB lighting to fans without any. Not everyone is into RGB, but those who don't like trading performance for more lights will probably find the best of both worlds with the FG142/122. They even work for radiator fans.
Will there ever be too much RGB? Probably, but I love the new iBuyPower RGB Cable combs. They targeted what could be considered the most boring part of a custom PC build, and turned it into rock concert levels of awesome! At $30, the price is pretty decent too.
The B975 is the keyboard to own if you enjoy competitive online gaming. The Light Strike optical switches give a genuine edge that may not feel like much until the moment relies on it. Bloody also does a great job with competitive quality and features to other mechanical keyboards in it's price range.
Bloody has already proved they can innovate with their optical switches, but the left-sided numpad for gaming and ergonomic keyboards show strokes of genius. The former keeps an identical layout to give better key presses for abilities, while the latter reverses the layout to better suite left numpad typing.
Bloody, a newer name in keyboards, has an optical switch design that is meant to improve competitive gaming performance. Not only do they have a low actuation point, but the optical latency is rated a lot lower than traditional mechanical switches.
E-Win made a surprisingly great gaming chair with the Champion. Not only does it have features like 4D armrests, but it is one of the best chairs to sit in on the comfort level as well. What really makes it stand out is in being one of the most affordable chairs in it's bracket.
The obvious application of a gaming chair is for a gaming station. However, does a gaming chair work in an office environment? The reality is that E-Win's Champion Chair is a great ergonomic option for an office setting as well, and it's much more affordable than many ergonomic office chairs.
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.
Rosewill has a lot of features and great lighting on their Neon K85 RGB keyboard. The mechanical switches are nice, but they opt for Kailh instead of cherry. The price makes it worth considering and if you haven't tried a mechanical keyboard for gaming, then don't wait any longer!
We did a review of the OPSeat Master Series a while back and we were impressed by the value the newer company was offering. It’s been a bit since we’ve checked back in and they upped their game since the last time we reviewed it. It looks like improvements were made to the base and the armrests, yet the price is still holding out at $249, a pretty good deal. If you want an excellent deal, then get your chair this weekend because the new models are $50 off through the end of Monday. Check out the link below, get yourself a good ergonomic chair, and enjoy the rest of your Thanksgiving and Black Friday weekend! OPSeat Website
Corsair releases a new headset with the HS50. Designed with comfort and audio quality in mind, the over ear design is light and Neodymium magnets should work great for long gaming sessions. Compatibility will be good with the standard 3.5mm connection, but only offers stereo level sound.
