Cougar is a name that a lot of people recognize for their PC cases, Fans, and Power Supply's, however not many people know that Cougar has made the move to their own line gaming hardware like Keyboards, Mice and Pads, which brings us to today's review of the Cougar 700M Gaming Mouse and Speed Pad. Cougar recently debuted their 700M gaming mouse and their Speed series mouse pads. They were kind enough to send me out 700M in black and a Speed Pad in large check out for you guys so let's get to it!
Professional gaming is a pretty interesting thing. A select few have been able to make a decent living at it and occasionally even have gaming products named after them. Such is the case with Tt eSports and their newest gaming team - Team DK. Team DK is Thermaltake's latest gaming group and Thermaltake has gone and made a collaborative set of gaming peripherals with Team DK. These include a special Team DK version of the Knucker Keyboard, Saphira mouse, Cronos headset and Pyrrhus mouse pad. Thermaltake was kind enough to send us the entire Team DK gaming bundle to check out, so sit down, strap in and let's get to it!
It seems that mechanical keyboards are all over the place these days. They’re becoming more mainstream and less expensive at the same time. Mechanical keyboards have also evolved right along with other gaming keyboards. They’ve got backlighting, a choice of multiple styles of Cherry MX switches and tons of added features. One such board is the G710+ from Logitech. They were kind enough to send one over for me to test out so let’s get to it!
The computer mouse is something that’s been around since the computer itself basically. The simple computer mouse evolved from a trackball with a single button to laser mice with multitudes of buttons, adjustable DPI, scroll wheels, LCD screens and more. The mouse we’ve got today from our good friends over at Logitech falls into the latter category. Enter the Logitech G502 Proteus Core. The Logitech G502 has 5 buttons, an unlockable scroll wheel (more on that later), adjustable DPI, adjustable weights and more.
ROCCAT is a name that hasn’t been around very long but is gaining popularity very quickly due to their extensive selection of feature-packed peripherals. I reviewed their excellent Ryos MK Glow mechanical keyboard not too long ago and I loved it. Today I’ve got their latest variant of the Ryos – the Ryos MK Pro mechanical keyboard – on the bench to check out, so let’s get to it!
Func got their start in California in 1999, making mouse pads. Relatively recently, they branched out to also make peripherals. Their line now includes mice, a headset, and a keyboard. Today, it is their keyboard that we will be looking at, the KB-460. The KB-460 is a well featured keyboard with Cherry MX Blue, Brown or Red switches.
The KB-460 we have features Cherry MX Red switches. The keys have a individual red backlighting. The keyboard is highly customizable, via 5 software controllable profiles with 10 individual key functions per profile. Profiles can be exported and imported as needed. There is also a high quality and stylish braided covering on the cable and a matte black soft touch covering on the casing. An internal USB 2.0 hub round out the feature set. It certainly looks like the Cobalt Pro is designed to game, so let us get on with the testing.
Everyone needs a keyboard. From a cheap $10 Walmart special to get the job done to units costing hundreds of dollars, they’re everywhere and very essential. What should you spend on a keyboard? Well that’s entirely up to you. What do you want in a keyboard? Do you need something unique? Do you game? Do you like or need backlit keys? Do you like having different profiles for different games or apps and enjoy creating macros that your keyboard can save? If you said yes to all these questions then I’ve got just the keyboard you’re looking for here on my test bench today. It’s from our good friends over at Logitech and it’s their new G19s Gaming Keyboard.
