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.
Thermaltake is jumping feet first into the peripherals arena with its Tt eSPORTS line of equipment. It sure seems like Thermaltake is going out of its way to brand and advertise this line of peripherals completely separate from their components business, so much so that the eSPORTS line has its own website. They were kind enough to send us a nice sampling of the eSports line which we will be taking a look at over the next week or two. The first one which will be having a look at today is the MEKA PRO mechanical gaming keyboard. Thanks for sending it over Thermaltake!
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.

The Drevo Calibur is a Bluetooth 4.0/wired mechanical RGB backlit keyboard which surprisingly isn't directly aimed at the gaming crowd, but rather your everyday office computer user. The Calibur is based upon a 71 key standard size key layout armed with mechanical switches in a compact design intended to save the user much needed desk space in the work environment. The Calibur has all the features needed to be a great device; it will come down to the design execution and materials Drevo has chosen.
