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 KB 460

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.

Logitech G19s

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.

Mionix Avior 7000

When we go out looking for a new mouse, most of us look for durability, weight, adjustable dpi and comfort.  For most of us, finding a good mouse is not an easy task and for someone that are left-handed, it's even harder due to the limited number of models available. A lot of times left handers end up making sacrifices in quality or performance and adapt the "It will do" approach. Whether you are a gamer or an office worker that uses the computer a lot, having the right mice that suits your preferences is important because it will literally mean winning or losing, a faster job done or a painstaking one. With the Mionix Avoir 7000 that is no longer the problem as it aims to address all the factors you consider. Let us see why the Mionix Avoir 7000 would likely be the perfect mice for you to use.
