German peripheral manufacturer Roccat has been cranking out gaming mice for what feels like forever, and they’ve definitely had a few hits over the years. Their latest release is particularly exciting though: the Kone Aimo. The Aimo combines the two biggest trends in gaming mice this year: multiple-zone RGB lighting and no acceleration optical sensors.
Let’s look at the lighting first (oh, the pretty colours!). Where most mice use lighting within their scroll wheel and in a coloured logo under your palm, the Kone Aimo is a little more sensible. It instead puts the lighting where you can actually see it while you’re using the mouse, on the sides of the [...]
If you often fly on a budget airline like EasyJet or RyanAir, getting a good carry-on bag is essential. With tremendous fees for checked luggage, it’s tempting to fit everything you need into a single 56 x 45 x 25cm bag — but that becomes a challenge if you’re away for more than a weekend. Scottish entrepreneur James Fyfe encountered just this problem in 2013, and turned to Kickstarter in 2015 to launch his solution: the GoBag. Now it’s 2017, and Fyfe & co are back to solicit crowd-funding for their upgraded model, the GoBag 2.
There are plenty of well-made carry-on bags available, but the GoBag’s unique feature was its [...]
NZXT have updated their popular CAM monitoring software to version 3.50. The new version sports a new user interface that feels more modern and intuitive than its predecessor, while using up fewer system resources.
NZXT promise that the new version won’t take up more than 1% of your CPU and 120 MB of RAM in most scenarios, although in our testing it was more like 2% and 170 MB.
As well as monitoring temperature, clocks, fan speeds and load, the CAM app also includes a system summary section, an in-game overlay, GPU overclocking and easy control of NZXT accessories like liquid cooling, fans and lights.
The new version is live now at the CAM website, [...]
The Anne Pro is one of the best known budget mechanical keyboards — but why is it so popular? Let’s take a closer look at what makes this keyboard such a standout, particularly at its modest price!It’s gorgeous and customisable
The first reason has got to be that the Anne Pro sports an RGB backlit, which is programmable via a Windows, iOS or Android app. That makes changing between different lighting schemes very convenient, as you can see in the video shot by Anne Pro owner Ryvaeus on Reddit — pretty sweet, right?!
Combine this with the fact you can choose between a black and a white/yellow version of the Anne Pro, and you can see [...]
German peripherals company Speedlink have taken to Gamescom 2017 to unveil their latest gaming headset, the Maxter. It comes in stereo and 7.1 surround sound models, and will suit the PC or PS4.
We haven’t gotten on well with all of Speedlink’s headsets in the past — one of our reviews had the subtitle ‘Once a Gorgon, Always a Gorgon’ — but this one seems to sport a new design that should hopefully fix a lot of the comfort and usability issues we had with previous models.
The headband adopts the same triple-component design as the SteelSeries Siberia, with two wire-carrying tubes held aloft over the leather-style headband. [...]
After the release of the GTX 1080 TI, it seemed like the war between the Graphics Card People and the Monitor People was over. Finally, after years of trying, General Nvidia had produced a single graphics card capable of sixty frames a second at that mighty 4K resolution. But the Monitor People didn’t take that defeat lying down… and now, Acer’s Hellforges have produced a new secret weapon: a 4K monitor that runs at 144 Hz. In whispers, folks call it the Predator X27; they say that no single graphics card can best it.
The X27 hasn’t yet arrived at the front lines, but scattered sightings and hearsay paint a fearsome picture. Dispatches insist it [...]
