Gamepads, controllers, joysticks, whatever you call them since their invention in the late seventies they have had a huge impact on gaming for players using consoles, PCs and mobile devices. Though the problem with most gamepads is they don’t easily allow the player to use a single controller across all platforms. Pro Clockers would like to thank GameSir for sending us their G4 Advanced Edition gamepad a device that is going in the right direction of multiplatform performance. At first glance, there is an excitement at seeing what you would be purchasing at a store location or online because there is no packaging hindering your ability to see the entire front of the controller. The no secrets packaging is great, but the best way to get the full effect of using an amazing controller is break it out of its well packaged home.
The nearly endless selection of gaming oriented peripherals is a wonderful thing for enthusiasts, no matter your taste or even your current mood, you can find something that suits you. From dozens of extra buttons to lighting effects that rival a popular club, the choices of extras are endless. Professional E-sports gamers on the other hand aren’t that interested in the flashy gimmicks, but need a rock solid, high performance input device they can rely on in the heat of the moment to bring home a victory. Anyone out there can slap together some silly hunk of plastic with a tracking sensor, a USB cord, and a few LED’s and call it a ‘gaming mouse’ but it takes a little bit more effort to make a truly great peripheral meant for serious business. Enter Fnatic. When the first thing you see opening the box is “Goodbye Mediocracy” on a product made BY some of the most well-known professional gamers FOR professional gamers, you know things just got serious…
Competitive gaming has been around since about 30 seconds after the first multi-player computer game was compiled, and has finally gained main-stream attention in the last several years with the recognition of E-sports. Millions of gamers go toe to toe around the world every day across many genera’s, but none require the split second precision and timing of First Person Shooters. A single millisecond delay anywhere can mean the difference between a win and a loss, and where the proverbial ‘rubber meets the road’ for most is the humble keyboard. There are a great many gaming oriented keyboards on the market with a myriad of ‘features’ targeted at gamers in general. Lights, Macro keys, and many other gimmicks just don’t apply to the FPS gamer who values speed and accuracy above all else. Kingston might have the answer in their new HyperX Alloy FPS mechanical keyboard. A slim profile for maximum portability and mouse area on your desk, as well as lightning fast Cherry MX Blue switches lurking beneath no-slip textured keycaps in the most critical areas might make this the ultimate weapon in the FPS gamer’s arsenal.
Gaming Keyboards are all the rage these days and near the top of almost everyone’s wish list, but what exactly is a ‘gaming keyboard’? Well, like anything else gaming oriented these days, it’s all the little extras above and beyond, such as better switches and fancy lighting. In this case, Tesoro has created highly tuned mechanical switches with very short actuation distance for lightning fast input. It also includes full RGB Lighting and an onboard 32bit Arm Cortex Processor giving you the power to program every single button and light on the keyboard to adapt to any scenario.

You’d be hard pressed to find an enthusiast these days without a mechanical keyboard. With so many companies producing peripherals these days, they seem to be everywhere. That being said, any company can hire a Chinese manufacturer to slap their name on a cheapo plastic keyboard with generic switches. At first, it’s great. However, will it stand the test of time? Probably not. To get a well built, sturdy keyboard that’ll last, you need a good name, a name you trust. One of the most trustworthy names in the industry has to be G.Skill. Known for making of some of, if not the best ram on the market, G.Skill has been a fan favorite for years. Now they have stepped into the peripheral market with their KM780R RGB mechanical keyboard. But can a company best known for ram and storage devices produce a keyboard that can live up to their name? I’d like to that the good people at G.Skill for providing Pro Clockers with the KM780R and allowing this review to happen. Now, let’s see how the KM780R stands up to the competition.
