SteelSeries are one of the most successful companies in the world when talking about gaming accessories and they have a huge line of products ranging from headsets to gaming mice. Weve had the opportunity in recent months to look at a few of their accessories such as the WoW Gaming Mouse, Ikari Laser Mouse and the fantastic 7G Keyboard, all of which earned our highest recommendation.
by Nathan Marks | 3rd April 2009
As some of you may remember we recently took a look at the Handshoemouse, a unique product that was unlike anything we had seen before. Years of research have contributed to the final design of this mouse and it really shows when you get the chance to experience it for yourself.
by Nathan Marks | 24th March 2009

by Nathan Marks | 11th February 2009

Razer are one of the oldest companies who focus entirely on producing gaming peripherals and products, such as keyboards and mice. We reviewed several of their products in the past, and they have always fared well in our labs. Today we will have a look at one of their cheapest gaming mice, the Salmosa. Even though the Salmosa is an entry-level gaming mouse, Razer boasts that it has the fastest optical sensor in the world. How this translates to real world situations we will find out today.

These are the very products we are checking out today.

While a casual PC user doesnt really need a mouse pad anymore, hardcore PC users and gamers generally prefer them. While mice do work without a pad, gamers long for higher precision and the added comfort a high quality mouse pad brings. Today we will take a look at two quality mouse pads from Boogie Bug, a French company who design and manufacture gaming and modding accessories. They are both made of high quality textile material.
by WhO_KnOwS | 14th November 2007
The desktop mouse sector has been relatively stagnant, with little to no new features except for slight cosmetic redesigns and the inclusion of a few more buttons. Then out of the blue came Logitech’s Hyper-scroll technology, which singlehandedly (r)evolutionized how people used mice. Being able to scroll through hundreds of pages with just a flick of the wheel was impressive, but the technology behind the dynamic switching between hyper and regular scroll was even more jaw-dropping.
Apparently still not satisfied with what they created, Logitech have kept developing new technologies, the result of which is the MX Air we have on review today. Aimed at people who want to control a computer desktop without the need to be sitting at a desk, this little device is apparently the next big thing in HTPC development.
by Grace | 29th May 2007
There are many companies who manufacture input devices and computer headsets but few who specialize in gaming products. It is easy to comprehend that a casual gamer could be satisfied with using a typical keyboard or set of headphones, but hardcore gamers demand the best performance and are willing to pay for it. A newly founded company, SteelSeries, has the needs of gamers set as their top priority and they offer a wide range of input devices, headsets and accessories specifically designed for hardcore gamers. We received a few of their products for evaluation and we will give them a test drive today.
by Dyre Straits | 23rd May 2007
Today, we have a brand new product from Saitek called, OBSIDIAN.†This is a wireless rechargeable mouse and comes attractively packaged and well protected within a hard plastic cover within the box.
by WhO_KnOwS | 9th March 2007
If you remember we reviewed the VisionTek X1950Pro a while ago. We were quite surprised by the quality of the whole package, so expectations were high for the XG6 gaming mouse, the MediaXchange keyboard and the LanPad. To be fair we did anticipate that the XG6 would be pushing the novelty factor just a bit too far, but as it turns out it is quite a good product overall.
by Stuart Davidson | 15th February 2007
Razer are based in San Diego California and have a long history of producing fantastic gaming mice such as the Razer Boomslang, which was a revolutionary product when it was released.
In the years since then Razer have been producing mice which are more than a match for their competitors and the latest in the range is the DeathAdder, their first to feature a 3rd Generation optical lens. Razer don't just make mice however and in recent times they have branched out into audio products, one of which we have been able to get our hands on. The Barracuda headset features true 5.1 capability and (more than a few) impressive specifications. Let us see how the DeathAdder and Barracuda impact our PC experience...
by Zardon | 20th December 2006
A few months ago we reviewed the Raptor K2 keyboard , the cheap and less than cheerful followup to the excellent (and rather expensive) original K1. Unlike many companies, our less than positive review didn't deter Raptor Gaming from supplying us with their newest gaming mouse the "M3". The M3 is the highest specification mouse in their newest series.
by Grace | 7th December 2005
The adjustable weight is one of the prime features of the mouse, and very likely a world’s first. By opening the metallic box, you will find eight 4.5gr weights and eight 1.7gr weights. Given that the weight cartridge can take up to eight weights as well, the weight is adjustable from 1.7gr up to 36gr, in 1.7gr steps. Talk about precision! This way, you can adjust the weight of the mouse to your liking and muscular strength. A lighter mouse will be easier to use, especially for long periods of time. A heavier mouse will be more precise and give a better feeling, but it will tire you much quicker. You can adjust the weight to achieve the perfect balance between those two for your own hand.

Itís one thing to build a mouse and keyboard meant for browsing the Internet or sending e-mail back and forth; itís quite another to build peripherals that can withstand the rigors of competitive PC gaming. At the QuakeCon 2005 show, Logitech unveiled the first of its much-anticipated G-series family of extreme-performance peripherals for PC gamers: the Logitechģ G7 Laser Cordless Mouse...
by Aaron | 14th May 2005
The biggest selling points of this mouse are the 1600dpi and its ďin game dpi sensitivity switching.Ē In absolute simplest laymenís terms it means there are buttons on the mouse that make the cursor move faster and slower. The higher the DPI, the faster it moves. Having a higher DPI means more information has to be processed so the image processing is increased. In terms of the DPI (Dots Per Inch) itís double that of any other MX mouse. But in terms of button location and size, itís the exact same as all the other MX Mice (except the MX310)
by Zardon | 3rd February 2005
Today we are going to be looking at two rather unusual mice from A4 tech , a company name many of you might not be familar with. So what's the deal with the mice? "Battery Free" and "Easy Go" arent exactly eye catching names so ill explain the theory behind each.
The Battery Free mouse (NB30) is the more interesting of the two designs. This mouse is powered by induction, or what they refer to as Cross Inductive Power. The mouse pad sends an electrical charge to the mouse without requiring actual physical contact. The power is transmitted by moving a coil of wire contained within the mouse through a magnetic field produced by the mouse pad.
by Zardon | 16th September 2004
Today im taking a look at a revoluntary product, the new MX1000 Laser Mouse, equipped with a laser tracked guiding system this mouse is claimed to offer twenty times the accuracy of your average optical mouse. With this incredible level of accuracy it can detect minute movements over surfaces that would be impossible for its LED based counterpart to deal with.
by Zardon | 10th July 2004
If you take your computer and its usage seriously most of know that a good mouse and keyboard are a necessity. Having a good mouse makes all the difference if you are a heavy gamer or into design/CAD. The budding designers will know how much harder their work can be if mouse resolution or sensitivity is below par.
by Chaos | 25th June 2004
When I set out to buy a mouse I quickly realized that the local wholesalers don't seem to carry anything other than the very basic line of optical mice. This meant I had to purchase the new mouse good old retail style. As in the past, whenever purchasing a mouse, the first and most important thing was the feel when resting your hand on the mouse. Other things such as the scroll wheel and at least 2 buttons are pretty mucha given, but todays mice have many more buttons along with plenty of other features to offer the consumer.
by Zardon | 11th May 2004
Following on from Julians review of the tasty Razer Viper Gaming mouse we have the opportunity to test two more gaming mice from Terratec: The Mystify Mamba and the Mystify Boomslang 2100.
