Peripherals are something every gamer drools over but rarely changes. Once you are used to something you use daily, it's hard to break away from that familiarity and muscle memory you’ve earned. Keyboards have been around longer than computers, and not much has really changed, so what does it take to motivate someone to take a leap of faith on new input devices? A few years ago, you might have been able to say ‘mechanical switches’ or ‘backlighting’ but it seems even the budget devices have that too. Unless yours has died and you just plain need a new one, it’s most likely going to be a combination of things you are looking for. Does ASUS have the right combination to win you over?
Whether you are an avid gamer or just the casual computer user a good keyboard makes a huge difference in performance. Either way, the Sandberg Hailstorm Mechanical Keyboard is one to put on your list. With its 104 key UK layout, custom lighting functions, and its personalized key settings you may just ignore the rest of your list.
Vigor. What is vigor? Vigor is being mentally and physically strong. Vigor is having the intensity and energy to win. And to win again. And again. That is the intention of MSI’s Vigor GK80 keyboard featuring Cherry MX RGB switches, dedicated hotkeys, and USB pass-through. MSI is no stranger to the world of PCs and accessories. Their product lines are wide and varied. Your whole set up could be entirely based off of MSI’s product lines. That is an awesome thing. No set up, whether completely kitted by MSI or a mixture of brands, would be complete without an outstanding top-tier keyboard that has the vigor to win….just like you.
MSI in the gaming and eSports world is a highly regarded supplier of notebook PCs, desktop PCs, graphics cards, motherboards, and peripherals. They are recognized by their dragon logo by PC enthusiast around the world. We at Proclockers are excited to be reviewing their Vigor GK40 Gaming Keyboard. A mid-priced keyboard for the cost-conscious or beginner PC gamer.
Today we will be checking out another excellent gaming peripheral from Thermaltake’s Tt eSPORTS line. You might remember a couple weeks ago we took a look at their MEKA PRO mechanical gaming keyboard, today we are checking out one of its companion devices, the VENTUS X Optical gaming mouse. In addition to sporting a 12,000 DPI optical sensor and a comfortable ergonomic design, the VENTUS X mouse also excels in an area we found the MEKA PRO to be lacking. The VENTUS X comes equipped with industry standard 16.8 Million color customizable RGB backlighting, and if it is half as spectacular as it looks from the packaging we will be in for a real treat. Big shoutout to Tt eSPORTS for sending the VENTUS X mouse our way! Let’s dig in!
As you know Aorus is the gaming side of Gigabytes hardware manufacturing. And despite being a relatively new name in the gaming hardware arena they sure are producing some nice products. A perfect example of that is the Aorus K7 gaming keyboard and the Aorus M3 gaming mouse that we will be taking a look at today, huge thanks to Gigabyte for sending these our way!
Mionix's gaming mice were developed in collaboration with Kickstarter and the Twitch streaming community. The Mionix QG mouse measures the user’s biometric information and movement data via integrated sensors and visualizes the captured data through an in-game overlay. Proclockers was able to evaluate the function of this unique mouse. Our hope is to inform others that are looking into this peripheral a better understanding of its abilities.
