REVIEW: SteelSeries Apex M500 Keyboard

SteelSeries Apex M500 Keyboard Review

The SteelSeries Apex M500 is a damn good Gaming keyboard, but it is no more than that! But to decry what it’s not got would be to miss the point of this keyboard entirely. This keyboard is for Pro Gamers and not so much for enthusiasts like perhaps you and me…

Asus GeForce GTX 1070 Strix OC Graphics Card Review

Ok, so the new Nvidia GTX 1070 is undeniably a good Graphics Card, but the Asus GeForce GTX 1070 Strix OC is even better. This is thanks to an impressive factory overclock, a great (yet quiet) cooler and impressive RGB LED illumination.

ROCCAT Ryos MK FX Keyboard Review

The ROCCAT Ryos MK FX is a big Gaming keyboard in every way! Not only is it big in size and not only does it have a big price tag, but it’s big on features too. It seems to have it all (apart from USB that is) from Cherry MX keys to RGB lighting and from the additional programmable keys to the sublime Swarm software. This really is a proper Gaming keyboard…

ROCCAT Kova Mouse Review

The ROCCAT Kova has grown on me more and more over the last week or so, so much so I’d be happy to use it as my personal Gaming weapon of choice. Everything about the Kova is good; good shape (for me), good design, good tracking and excellent software. A damn good Gaming mouse then? YES!

ROCCAT Renga Headset Review

The new ROCCAT Renga headset is a good Gaming headset as there’s plenty to like from its looks to the construction and the quality of the sound produced. I just wish it knew if it was an on-ear or an over-ear headset as for me it was really neither. But at just £35 maybe we shouldn’t complain…

CRYORIG A40 CPU Cooler Review

The CRYORIG A40 is not only the best performing CPU Cooler we’ve tested so far but it’s also a good looking cooler and well made too! But the icing on the cake is surely the fact that it cools parts of your PC no other cooler can. And all this for just £75!

Crucial MX300 750GB SSD Review

The Crucial MX300 750GB (Limited Edition) SSD may well be equipped with 3D NAND and that may well be the latest technology, but in the real world and in Gaming you’d be had pushed to know. The bottom line is that the MX300 is simply a decent SSD at a decent price with an unusual capacity.

 

REVIEW: Ozone Neon 3K Mouse

Ozone Neon 3K Mouse Review

The new Ozone Neon 3K is probably the cheapest optical mouse we’ve tested here at pcG, yet within reason it ticks all of the boxes your average Gamer needs. With a price tag of just £34 there’s really very little to criticize to be fair…

 

REVIEW: Antlion Audio ModMic 4.0

Antlion Audio ModMic 4.0 Review

Simply put the Antlion ModMic should be admired as it is one of those products that has found a niche/requirement that it fulfils perfectly. If you need a microphone on your headphones the ModMic is the answer and in fact it maybe the only answer.

 

REVIEW: Sound BlasterX H7 Headset

Date: June 6, 2016
Sound BlasterX H7 Headset Review

Creative’s Sound BlasterX H7 is indeed a fine Gaming headset, that not only looks good but sounds even better, but it’s not without some minor flaws. Lack of PC connectivity options for soundcard owners is one but the biggest is likely to be the price…
