Ever since Valve announced SteamOS and Steam Machines there have been two Steam Machines that were shown the most. They were the Alienware Steam Machine and Zotac’s NEN SN970. Not that long ago we took a look at the Alienware unit, and now we have the NEN SN970 to review. This unit is part of Zotac’s extremely popular ZBOX line of mini PCs. Under the hood you have an Intel Core i5-6400T processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960, 8GB of memory, and a 1TB 2.5“ SATA hard drive. Like all Steam Machine’s the NEN SN970 will ship with SteamOS pre-installed and an official Steam Controller. This will bring gaming into the living room and you’ll have the massive Steam library of games to choose from, which has more games than either of the two major consoles. Let’s get to gaming and see what the NEN SN970 is all about!
Gaming is not limited to just PCs and Consoles, there are many mobile gamers out there. I know some people that their main gaming device is a tablet. With that being all touchscreen can be a little difficult for some games, especially shooters. Having a gaming keyboard for mobile devices like this allows gamers to play their best. Not to mention having a keyboard for mobile devices, tablets, and even Android consoles makes you much more productive. It is much easier to chat or write an e-mail using a real keyboard and not an on-screen one. Mad Catz has come up with the S.T.R.I.K.E. M which is a small compact wireless keyboard that has many gaming features as well as multimedia and productivity features anyone would appreciate. Let’s see what this keyboard can do!
Recording and streaming your gameplay has never been more popular. Some people are making a full-time living off of gaming videos on YouTube and with streaming services like Twitch. While recording and broadcasting from a PC can be done without any extra hardware doing it on a console or say Steam Machine can be a little more difficult. Since video sharing became popular one of the most well known names in the game capture market has been Elgato and today we have one of their latest game capture devices, the Game Capture HD60. If you can guess by the name this device will allow your to capture your gameplay in HD resolution (1920 x 1080) and at 60 frames per second. This devices offers so much more too, so let’s jump right in and see what it’s all about!
Mad Catz R.A.T. mice have a long history with PC gamers. If you’ve used a R.A.T. mouse you know it is unlike anything else out there, yet many people overlook these mice and I’m not sure why. Some people have told me they don’t choose these mice because they don’t look like they would be comfortable, yet they have never used them. Every R.A.T. mouse that I’ve used not only has been comfortable, but extremely functional. Mad Catz recently released two new R.A.T. mice, the PRO X and the PRO S. Today we will be taking a look at the PRO S which features a PixArt PMW3310 5000 DPI optical sensor, 8 programmable buttons, and an adjustable palm rest. The PRO S is designed to be a tournament mouse to it is also very lightweight. Let’s get to gaming and see what the PRO S is all about!
The original Tt eSPORTS Cronos gaming headset was released back in 2013, we were really impressed with it and since then Tt eSPORTS has released a few different versions of the headset.

It features a design much like the original Cronos but has a new open air and auto-adjusting headband that is made to fit your head perfectly. You have 40mm neodymium magnetic drivers as well as a retractable and bendable microphone. This headset is also made to work with multiple devices so you can use it with your PC, mobile device, tablet, etc. Let’s see what the Tt eSPORTS Cronos AD Gaming Headset is all about!
Zalman has been around for quite a long time and we know them best for their legendary CPU coolers and cases. Over the past few years Zalman has not really put out that many products. This sort of took them off the radar for many people. Well today we have a product that will definitely put them back on the map for you and it is not a CPU cooler or a case, it is actually a keyboard. The keyboard is the ZM-K700M and it is a full mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX mechanical switches, great build quality and some of the most impressive backlighting we’ve seen on a keyboard before. Let’s take a look at the ZM-K700M and see if Zalman has a winner on their hands.
We mainly know MSI for their motherboards and gaming laptops. Over the past few years they’ve really taken the time to grow their Gaming Series, which is now made up of gaming motherboards, gaming notebooks, gaming all-in-one’s, and gaming accessories. Today we will be taking a look at MSI’s Interceptor DS200 gaming mouse. This mouse features an 8200 DPI laser sensor, 9 programmable buttons, an adjustable weight system, and RGB lighting. This is the first time we’ve taken a look at a mouse from MSI so let’s see what it’s all about!
The term Steam Machine is something we’ve been hearing for a while now, but the actual real Steam Machines are only coming out now. A Steam Machine is meant to bridge the gap between a console gamer and traditional PC gamer. It brings the Steam experience and Steam’s vast library of games to the living room. Even if you are a traditional PC gamer there are times you just want to sit in front of the TV and play some games. Many people have already done this by building their own HTPC system, but these are bulky and more often than not underpowered. Steam Machines are designed to be smaller than most current-generation consoles, which means you can easily add them to your home theater setup. A true Steam Machine is powered by SteamOS and comes with an official Steam Controller. Today we are looking at Alienware’s Steam Machine (model: ASM100-2980BLK) which is powered by an Intel Core i3 processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPU with 2GB of memory, 8GB of DDR3 memory, and a 1 TB hard drive. Come on this adventure with us as we see what Alienware’s Steam Machine and the SteamOS is all about.
Tt eSPORTS has has their Poseidon Z line of gaming keyboards out on the market for a while now. These keyboards are made to give gamers a solid no-frills full-size gaming keyboard, which many gamers will appreciate. You are not going to find extra macro keys, unnecessary buttons, or even a wrist rest. Tt eSPORTS also saves you the gamer money by using their own mechanical switches instead of the more expensive Cherry MX keys. At the time of writing this keyboard is selling for only $119.99. We’ve previously taken a look at the Poseidon Z Illuminated and the Poseidon ZX and really enjoyed them for their functionality and simplicity. With the Poseidon Z RGB Tt eSPORTS has added full RGB backlighting so you can really show off the keyboard! Let’s take a look and see what this keyboard is all about!
