ROCCAT Horde AIMO Membranical RGB Gaming Keyboard
     Sun, Jul 15 2018 | 9:03A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In order to try out the new Membranical switches of the Horde AIMO keyboard, we first wrote some articles in Word and afterwards we continued gaming in titles such as AION and Quake Champions: the main keys feel less rubbery when actuated versus a standard membrane switch and ROCCAT has managed to keep the sound levels to a minimum as well. The plastic casing of the keyboard does assist further with noise dampening, while the actuation point does allow the user to type without the need of bottoming out."

HP Portable SSD P800 Review
     Sat, Jul 14 2018 | 9:03A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
USB-powered external hard drives remain the mechanism of choice for most laptop users who need to back up their systems or transfer large files. While their price is low, so is their performance, and the increasing availability of Thunderbolt 3 ports on newer laptops presents an opportunity for vendors to target high-end users who are willing to pay for the best possible data transfer rates. The Hewlett-Packard Portable SSD P800 leverages its Thunderbolt interface to provide performance that’s exceptional for any storage device, not just an external one, and today Benchmark Reviews will put this high-end new drive through its paces.

Corsair Crystal 280X RGB Review
     Sat, Jul 14 2018 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Crystal 280X, Corsair offers two new cases. Today we are going to review the 280X RGB which features a compact form factor as well as space for high-end components. Despite its small dimensions, there is actually enough space for a pair of 280mm radiators. There is also a separate compartment for the power supply allowing for very clean looking builds as well as a left side panel that's been made from tempered glass. If you aren't a huge fan of RGB LEDs, Corsair is offering the same model without RGB accents at a reduced price.

Wooting One @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Jul 13 2018 | 12:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So the big trend recently in mechanical keyboards has been optical switches. You have even seen companies like Razer jumping on just this past week. I’ve had a few in the office testing like the Bloody B975 that I reviewed a few weeks ago. But there is one keyboard that is taking a different approach. Its called the Wooting One. It’s an optical keyboard as ell and its been out for a while. They actually have their Kickstarter live right now for the full sized Wooting Two. Anyhow, I have been testing the TKL sized Wooting One for a while now. It uses Flaretech optical switches and with those, they are able to offer a full analog input experience. What that means is where other keyboard switches are just on or off, these are like a gas pedal and can detect input through the entire range. For most things, you will use them in a normal way, but in some games, you can use them to get a better control. So today I’m going to check out what the whole Wooting experience is all about and see how their keyboard stands out.

GIGABYTE AORUS K7 Review
     Thu, Jul 12 2018 | 12:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The AORUS K7 will have to do a great job to set itself apart from the pack, and it does make a good first move. Swaying away from plastic for the top fascia, the K7 offers a metal one which looks and feels quite premium. Things like the highly adjustable feet stands, and on-the-fly controls do also help its push to differentiate itself.
