Gaming mice have remained more or less the same for quite a while. Well with the mouse we are taking a look at today we have at least two new features that I’ve never seen on a mouse before. They are a analog thumb paddle and a dorsal fin switch. Will these new features change the way we game? I guess we will have to see. The mouse in question is the ROCCAT Tyon and even without these innovations its pretty impressive featuring 12 programmable buttons, an 8200 DPI Pro Aim (R3) laser sensor, ROCCAT’s EasyShift[+] functionality, RGBA illumination and of course ROCCAT’s impressive driver software. Let’s get to gaming and see what this mouse can do!
Tesoro is a new company to us here at ThinkComputers. Founded in 2011 the company primarily focuses on gaming peripherals and devices. I would say they are most known for their gaming keyboards and today we are going to be taking a look at one of their latest, the Excalibur Spectrum. The Excalibur Spectrum has a very simple keyboard design, but it jam-packed with features. First you have mechanical key switches (Kailh), you can choose between browns, reds or blues. The keyboard is also fully backlit with RGB backlighting so you can really mess around with the colors and customize it how you want. Tesoro also has some awesome lighting effects that you can use to show off the keyboard. On top of that the keyboard has full N-key rollover, built-in memory to store up to 200 macros and 2000 keystrokes in 5 gaming profiles, multimedia keys and a very solid design. Let’s jump in and see what this keyboard can do!
The original Tt eSPORTS Black gaming mouse was a no frills gaming mouse designed to give you the best performance possible. Tt eSPORTS is bringing new life into this mouse with their release of the Black V2 Gaming Mouse. The laser sensor has been upgraded, a new surface coating has been added, a textured grip on the left side has been added and an addition thumb button has been added for even more macros. Tt eSPORTS has kept the same shape and adjustable weight system that we saw on the original mouse. Is this the new gaming mouse to get? Read on as we find out!
Back in December we took a look at Cougar’s flagship gaming keyboard the 700K, which took home our Editor’s Choice Award. We are moving down Cougar’s gaming keyboard product stack and next up is the 600K. The 600K is a small step down from the 700K, but it still features the same aluminum chassis design, mechanical key switches, repeat rate buttons, FPS palm rest and more. The only real big difference between the 600K and 700K is that the 700K has the 6 extra programmable G keys and individual key backlighting. The 600K still makes for a really great keyboard and has a complete feature set that many gamers are going to enjoy. Read on as we take a look…
Last year we took a look at Kingston’s original HyperX Cloud Gaming headset and there really was not much to not like about it. Now on its second iteration we are quite excited to see what Kingston has done to make this headset even better. The biggest change is the addition of 7.1 virtual surround sound via a USB controller with DSP sound card. Do not worry though you still have the ability to use the Cloud II with a 3.5 mm plug if you wish. Kingston has pretty much retained the same design with the Cloud II as we saw on the original headset. This means you have that brushed aluminum build with a very comfortable headband, stitched HyperX logo, and two sets of earcups. Is this the gaming headset for you? Read on as we find out…
ROCCAT’s RYOS gaming keyboard series is quite popular with gamers. Now made up of four different keyboards they have quite the offering. Last year we took a look at the RYOS MK Glow and now we are taking a look at the RYOS TKL Pro. The RYOS TKL is in the tenkeyless form factor that we saw on the Tt eSPORTS Poseidon ZX. That form factor is a favorite of many gamers and I actually prefer it as well. Besides this form factor the RYOS TKL Pro comes in four different Cherry MX key switch flavors, per-key illumination, a built-in wrist rest and of course ROCCAT’s legendary gaming software. Is this the gaming keyboard for you? Read on as we find out!
EVGA is a brand that we typically know for graphics card and motherboards, but they actually make quite a lot of other products. One of those products happen to be gaming mice. Today we will be looking at their TORQ X5 gaming mouse which features a 6400 DPI optical sensor, OMRON switches, 8 programmable buttons and an ambidextrous design. Will this be the perfect mouse to add to your gaming arsenal? Will this make EVGA a company we think about when it comes to gaming? Read on as we find out!
Being a gamer, one of the most important things we need is a mouse pad. The mouse pad helps us dictate our movements and our work flow. Most of the mouse pads these days are made out of a cloth and some made out of aluminum. Over the past few years we all have been seeing movements into control mousepads and also speed mouse pads. Different materials and products help aid in or don’t help with tracking of the mouse sensor or even the mouse feet. Some gaming mice only like certain type of mouse pad to work correctly. Well today we are going to be taking a look at the Tt eSports Draconem mouse pad. Which offers 2 sides of control, high speed and high control and is made of thick aluminum.
Cougar wants to be a big player in the gaming and eSports arena. We have seen many companies make the transition or great sub-brands to do so. We were very impressed with Cougar’s flagship gaming keyboard the 700K and now we are going to be taking a look at their 600M gaming mouse. The 600M sits in the middle of their mice offerings with the 700M above and the 200M below. It packs some great features like OMRON switches, an ANDS-9800 laser sensor, on-board memory to keep your profiles wherever you go, 8 programmable buttons, a soft-touch feel, programmable lighting and so much more! Can the 600M impress us as much as Cougar’s 700K keyboard did? Let’s jump in and see!
Something that we have seen over the past year is many eSports companies that have traditionally been using Cherry MX mechanical keys have developed their own mechanical keys.

Beyond that this keyboard is in the Tenkeyless form factor, is LED backlit and carries an industry leading 5-year warranty! How does it stack up to other gaming keyboards out there?
