The Tyrfing V2 is an elegant tenkeyless keyboard, with plate-mounted Cherry MX-style mechanical switches produced by Outemu floating above a black metal base. You have the option for Brown, Blue, Red or Black switches, which are tactile, clicky, soft linear and linear, respectively.
Each switch is topped by an ABS keycap, with lasered legends that allow the RGB backlighting beneath to shine through. Unlike most other mechanical keyboards, Drevo have selected a stylish capitalised typeface to label their keycaps, and have opted to spell out most keys (e.g. the Windows key is WIN, not a Windows symbol). This produces a consistent and stylish [...]
Today we’re looking at Roccat’s latest and greatest mouse, the Kone AIMO RGBA. This mouse distinguishes itself with a colourful design, precise Owl-Eye optical sensor and deep game integration.

Let’s begin by taking a closer look at the design of the S277HK, which is actually quite remarkable. The first thing you notice is the display, which spans twenty-seven inches with ~1cm bezels on the top and sides. The bezel terminates in an faux-aluminium silver frame, which makes for a classy look. On the bottom, we have some more faux-metal embossed with the acer wordmark in the centre.
The feeling of elegance also extends to the monitor’s stand, which sports an interesting asymmetric design. While the metal base is centred below the monitor, the stand sits off to the right side. Thankfully, the monitor’s stability remains [...]
The AG251FG may come with the same 24.5-inch 240Hz panel as the Viewsonic XG2530 and BenQ XL2540, but it adds something new in the form of G-Sync. Let’s see which monitor reigns as our favourite by the end of the article.
We’ll start with a brief look at the monitor’s design and features.Design
The AG251FG is immediately recognisable as an AOC monitor, with the company’s trademark straight-edge aluminium stand. The stand rests on a V-shaped base, just wide enough to fit a tenkeyless (compact) keyboard between the two legs.
The AG251FG’s bezels are reasonably thin (2.5mm) on the top and both sides, and a little chunkier [...]
Today we’re looking at a trio of protective cases for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. These cases come courtesy of Tudia, an accessories firm founded in Minnesota in 2013. We have two different models to show you — the Tamm in black (right in the picture above) and the Merge in metallic grey and mint (centre and left, respectively). Let’s get right into it!
We’ll be accompanied on this brief review with our new favourite friend, a mysterious craft used by a Doctor of some renown.
You can see that each case possesses a two-tone design; the Tamm has a carbon fibre effect on the top and bottom while the Merge has a simpler black [...]
