EpicGear launches MORPHA X RGB Fully Modular Gaming Mouse

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.

Using the included Modular Senor Cartridges, the MORPHA X equipped with...

OPSeat Master Series Gaming Chair Review

Introduction I can officially say that every heavy computer user needs a good, quality computer chair to go with their desk setup. The right kind of chair is critical to helping with posture, comfort and the long term health of your various joints. I may be in my early 30s, but I already regret not budgeting for the proper ergonomic seating at my various workstations. The problem is, how do you budget for a $300-$400 chair when you want to upgrade to a really decent graphics card for that cost? It’s in light of this concept that we come to a fairly new company trying to get their foot into the gaming chair market. OPSeat is a Florida based company and their focus is on quality products that have excellent ergonomics. Right now, they only have one series of chairs, the Master Series, but they have a broad range of color choices to fit any gamer’s taste. We’ll have to get to the testing phase of this chair soon enough, but first let’s take a brief look at a statement from the company. As always, we’d like to thank OPSeat for providing a sample for us to review today! Providing High Quality Chairs for Every Gamer OPSEAT was founded to manufacture high performance gaming chairs. We offer an unrivaled level of comfort, quality and affordability. High quality double stitched PU leather has been wrapped around an Ergonomically designed metal frame to create a world class experience. Our flagship product, the “Master Series” has received many pos...



EG Zora

EpicGear Zora Gaming Mouse and Skorpios Bungee Review

Introduction Here we are at round two of our EpicGear review lineup. The Defiant Keyboard with EG’s special brand of switches ended up impressing us quite a bit, so now let’s look at a mouse and a bungee design. The gaming mouse market is extremely hard to stand out in and even if you make a great product, you can simply be one in a sea of many others. However, mouse bungees aren’t quite as common, in spite of the surplus of mice that could use them. We’ll take a closer look at both the Zora Mouse and Skorpios Mouse Bungee, but let’s look again at a statement from EG.



EpicGear Defiant Thumb

EpicGear Defiant MMS Mechanical Keyswitches Gaming Keyboard Review

Introduction Have you ever met someone for the first time and felt like you hit it off with that person right away? I had that feeling with EpicGear at CES 2017. To be fair, they had shiny new tech and that kind of thing usually happens with my extroverted personality anyways. Still, EG had an impressive CES display and now we get the opportunity to take an up close and personal look at their equipment. EG is a subsidiary of Geil, who you probably recognize for the RAM products. EG however, is specializing in gaming peripherals and I like the concepts they are trying to succeed on. Today we’re going to start the reviews with the Defiant Keyboard and the MMS Mechanical Keyswitches. That’s because we’ll also have a mouse, a cable manager and headset reviews coming shortly hereafter. It seems like EG is offering some great options in the gaming peripheral market, but we’ll need to take a closer look to really get a feel for how “Epic” their gear actually is. While I’m not worried about their chances, let’s first take a look at a beautiful logo I cropped out of the website and a quick statement about the company. By the way, did you know GeIL was an acronym? It was news for me as well.

Filling the Loop: SENNHEISER Headsets, TAI-HAO Keycaps, AQUA COMPUTER cuplex kryos NEXT

As a hardware news and review writer, I find that it can be pretty difficult to keep up with everything happening in the industry. It could be that, or it could be the full time job with a family that crunches the schedule a bit. But that’s the life of a freelancer and I wouldn’t have it any other way! Still, there’s some good news worthy releases I’ve received that I’ve been dying to get out to you, but haven’t had the time until now. Let’s fill the loop on some interesting products from SENNHEISER, TAI-HAO and AQUA COMPUTER. I hate to admit it but I was deleting PRs from SENNHEISER because I didn’t realize they were different from the other spam emails I get. Let’s just say spam filters aren’t perfect and I check all of my promotional emails a bit closer now. Still, consistency is not an issue for them and I began noticing what I thought were some pretty impressive products. SENNHEISER deals in gaming headsets, but also has a host of other audio products to check out. For this update, I particularly want to point out the GSP 350 gaming headset with Dolby 7.1 Surround. While I can’t verify the audio quality, the design looks excellent and some user reviews I looked at indicate that the company generally has pretty good sound. Even then, there were a couple of features that looked interesting. One design detail I really like is the fact that the mic will automatically mute when you raise the boom, negating t...

FNATIC Reveals the Clutch G1 Gaming Mouse and Duel Gaming Headset

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...

STEELSERIES Rival 500 Gaming Mouse Review

Introduction Please don’t hate me, but I’m going to mention the fact of how many gaming mice there are right now. With that out of the way, there are so many gaming mice around right now, it’s getting real hard to do something that is truly innovative in the market right now. That’s where the Rival 500 comes into play. They’ve redesigned the thumb area on this mouse to do something that is quite unique for the industry and while some of their designs are already unique, STEELSERIES could really be on to something for MMO/RPG gamers.

Dream Machines DM1 Pro S (1)

DREAM MACHINES DM1 Pro S Gaming Mouse Review

Introduction I want to point this intro in another direction. I really do! But there’s just SO many gaming mice!!! I’m beginning to think it’s easier to start a mouse company than it is to become a debt buyer. A quick look through Amazon will tell you I’m not over-exaggerating. However, this many options isn’t a bad thing. While there can be a lot of bad products to sort through, this can also help a buyer find exactly what they want. In reviewing several mice recently, I’ve noticed that each one has the tiniest little differences that can be a huge deal for the way it feels. DREAM MACHINES is at it again with the DM1 Pro S Gaming Mouse. They included a Pixart 3360 optical sensor this time and having used it in other mice, I can already say it’s a welcome addition. DREAM MACHINES is likely a name you haven’t heard of, so here’s a little bit of info about their company. Dream Machines specializes in providing the best solutions for gamers. We wanted to create something that would fulfill the needs of even the most demanding players.

STEELSERIES Rival 700 Mouse and Apex M500 Keyboard Review

Introduction I have no way to describe just how many mouse and keyboard options there are in the world today. I’m not talking about all of them either. I’m just talking about “gaming” mice and keyboards. The options have gone through the roof and all you have to do is try a quick Amazon search and you’ll have enough mice to send the black death sweeping through Europe again! Needless to say, the eSports phenomenon has had a huge part in bringing many a design from many a company. Today, we’re going to look at a new company for PureOC by reviewing a mouse and keyboard from SteelSeries. Do they have what it takes to stand out? We’ll dive into that further, but I can say that their social media presence and website appearance are already off to a good start. Let’s look at a quick word from their site so we can get a feel for what motivates their product designs. WE ARE GAMING SteelSeries has fueled the gaming industry by creating innovative new products, designed specifically for eSports and passionate gamers everywhere. RELENTLESS INNOVATION Here at SteelSeries, we are obsessed with “firsts”. Dating back to 2001, our company was formed to meet the surface needs of hardcore gamers by introducing the first glass mousepad, the Icemat.

CREATIVE Sound BlasterX H5 Gaming Headset Review

Introduction Headsets are devices I’ve avoided most of me life. Being a PC gamer, it seems odd to say this. On the other hand, when I would try a headset, I would find them, hot, uncomfortable, and lacking the type of sound quality I’ve come to expect from a good pair of book shelf speakers with a quality amplifier. CREATIVE set out to change my opinion (unawares) by sending me the Sound BlasterX H5 gaming headset to review. The timing couldn’t be better since I was about to pull the trigger on something to help hide the noise of my various games and speech clients from my family. I thought I would be sacrificing my comfort, but I found an experience that I wasn’t sure even existed until now. Before we jump into the details, let’s look at a bit of info on CREATIVE, the company behind the Sound BlasterX H5. Also, check out the video review featured above!
