eSports are starting to take over the gaming industry with the new push of games that are more team based and focused, with that being said the market for gaming gear for the past few years has been at an all-time high. One of the companies who has been in the scene and going strong for a while is Thermaltake and with their Tt eSPORTS line they have much to offer every level of gamer on the market. Well today we are going to take a look at their new gaming mouse called the Volos. This is their MOBA/MMORPG mouse.

They have many different features that appeal to different markets of gamers just like mice and keyboards.

Mad Catz really changed the game when they released their R.A.T. series of gaming mice. I always thought that the mice looked cool, but because of their design I doubted that they would be comfortable at all. Well after reviewing Mad Catz M.M.O. 7 mouse, which is based off the R.A.T. design my mind was really blown. Not only was the mouse one of the most comfortable I have ever used it was made of quality materials and worked very well. This year at CES Mad Catz let us know they were making a gaming mouse for mobile users and it is finally here, the R.A.T. M. This mouse is much smaller than your normal mouse, features 10 programmable buttons, a 6400 DPI laser sensor, and Bluetooth Smart technology. If you game on a laptop this may be the perfect mouse for you.
Behold, the day of days has arrived: Kickstarted darling Ouya, the Android-powered video game console, is available to the public. It sold out on Amazon in just a few hours and I’ll bet that other retailers are finding their stocks a little low, too. I backed Ouya on Kickstarter shortly before the close of the nearly $8.6M funding round last summer, and I received my backer unit a couple of weeks ago. I’ve had some time to play several of the games and poke around the device a bit.
Last year we took a look at ROCCAT’s ISKU Illuminated gaming keyboard and we really did like it, especially for the fact that was not a mechanical keyboard, but was still very comfortable and had many features that gamers would enjoy. While the original ISKU did have blue backlit keys many gamers wanted customization over the color of the backlighting. This is where the ISKU FX comes in, it adds customizable backlighting to the ISKU keyboard enabling you to change the color to any color you would like and it also adds in some cool lighting effects. Read on as we take a look.

Many people do not have the right gaming gear when they first build or purchase their computer. A lot of the time they discover a game then get really into it. So then they will need to go out and buy that gaming mouse, keyboard and headset. GX Gaming makes a wide variety of gaming peripherals and has put three of their best products together into a single gaming kit called the Gaming KMH 100. It includes GX Gaming’s Imperator gaming keyboard, Maurus gaming mouse and Lychas gaming headset. Kits like this are great because they give you everything that you need in one simple package. I’m actually surprised more companies do not have kits like this. Read on as we take a look at all three products included in this kit.
When I got my hands on this mouse, I was thrilled to be doing the review. The German company ROCCAT is one of the top of the line gaming peripherals companies around today, very well known in Europe. Their USA launch started in 2012 and has been making a big impact with gamers. They started out with the Kone, then came the Kone[+], and now the Kone XTD, their flagship mouse. This mouse is powered by an 8200 DPI Pro Aim R3 laser sensor, a commanding 32-bit Turbo Core V2 72MHz ARM MCU processor, and the most advanced Tracking & Distance Control Unit around – all working in clockwork unison to deliver world-beating battle ability.
Back at the end of 2010 TT eSPORTS introduced the MEKA G1 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. It was an instant hit with its Cherry MX Black mechanical key switches and extremely sturdy and solid design.

So today we have the TT eSPORTS MEKA G1 Illuminated Gaming Keyboard. This keyboard has the same features you saw in the original MEKA G1 like the 1000 Hz polling rate, built in USB hub and audio connections and 1.5m military grade cable. This new version also offers a dynamic pulse-break backlight system with 7 different illumination levels. Read on as we take a look!
