When you think of a mouse pad you think about the old floppy foam ones or even the textured plastic ones that were big in the early 2000’s. With those you have to worry about getting it dirty or spilling your drink all over it. Well worry no more my friends! This mousepad is washable, water resistant and scratch resistant because it is made from aluminum. That’s right, ALUMINUM! It is the first that I have ever seen and might just be the first one to hit the market.
If you are a serious gamer you are not using a wireless mouse. The main reasons are that it could lose battery or there would be some sort of interference with the wireless signal. While these might not be major issues when browsing the internet, but when you are about to get a headshot and it happens its a MAJOR problem. While wired mice are great they do have one drawback, the cord. In many cases the cord actually causes drag or may simply get in the way, which can affect your aim when gaming. The answer to this is what we know as a mouse bungee. It is a device that lifts this cord off of your desk which not only eliminates the drag, but gets it out of the way. The ROCCAT Apuri is not only a mouse bungee, but it also has 4 powered USB ports on it as well. Will you be adding this to your gaming arsenal? Read on as we take a look…

The Kraken Pro Analog Gaming Headset was a product that I received after competing in the annual Tiger Direct PC Race. Only after the event was over and all the hoopla from CES calmed down did we decide that the Kraken Pro was one of the products we received that we legitimately wanted to review. Razer has a history of making wild claims regarding PC products, i.e. The Razer Blade: The World’s First Gaming Laptop or the Razer Edge Pro: The World’s First Gaming Tablet but with the Kraken Pro they are making a claim based on one of the most subjective topics in product reviews…comfort. The Kraken Pro has a lot to live up to, especially when you make a claim like that, so let’s see how it holds up.
Granted, I haven’t been using printer paper, but my first foray into a real mousepad wasn’t that long ago. The first true “gaming” mouse pad I ever used was given to me by my best friend, erad1cate.

Since his girlfriend had already purchased him an awesome aluminum gaming surface he decided to give me the Alienware one. Immediately I noticed a difference in my play and comfort. What have I been doing all these years? Living uncomfortably, that’s what. Roccat, whose been known for solid input devices, sent us their new Sense High Precision Gaming Mousepad. This budget-friendly surface option is boasted as the solution to all your gaming needs so let’s see if it lives up to that bill.

Tt eSPORTs (Thermaltake) collaborated with DesignworksUSA, a subsidiary of BMW Group, to create one of these very products. The idea was to take the “standard” Gaming Mouse and put a twist on it like you’ve never seen before. Aesthetically and functionally unique I give the Level 10 M Gaming Mouse. If you aren’t familiar with work done between Thermaltake and DesignworksUSA you should search the original Level 10 case. Most people are familiar with the Level 10 case that was reviewed here at ThinkComputers but let me tell you the inspiration for that case was quite unique, and so was the cost. DesignworksUSA is a company that specializes in thinking outside of the car realm and applying its design application to products that you wouldn’t normally think of. Is the Level 10 M Gaming Mouse of those products that people will revere for more than just its design? Let’s take a look!
Being someone who works on their computer a lot it can get quite annoying and uncomfortable to sit at a desk all day.

If I could pick one brand that made the biggest splash at Think Computers this year it would hands down be the Vengeance line of products from Corsair. I started reviewing Corsair non-component products a couple years ago with their speaker line. The transition to their input devices was smooth for me because I was already reviewing so many other input devices from other manufacturers. Every Corsair product I’ve reviewed personally has left a lasting impression on me; So much so that the Corsair K90 Illuminated Gaming Keyboard is a product that I’ve been trying to get my hands on all year. On paper the K90 looks quite promising. I always make notion to other things that could be added or subtracted to various products and the K90 looks like it could be the porridge that Goldie Locks picks.
