ROCCAT Skeltr Keyboard Review

I’m a little unsure what to think of the new ROCCAT Skeltr; on the one hand it’s a good looking membrane Gaming keyboard with RGB illumination with clever mobile device integration. But on the other hand it’s a £150 keyboard and there’s simply not enough here to justify that price tag in my opinion.

Lian-Li PC-K5WX Case Review

I have to say that I’m somewhat disappointed by the Lian-Li PC-K5WX but maybe I was expecting too much. I at least thought I’d get a Lian-Li Case, but the PC-K5WX is simply a Case, a Case like many other Cases available today.

SteelSeries Rival 700 Mouse Review

The idea of having a tactile Feedback for cooldowns on a mouse is simply genius. This along with a plethora of additional features and an impressive optical senor makes the SteelSeries Rival 700 simply one of the best mice I’ve ever tested.

 

REVIEW: Speedlink Ultor Keyboard

Speedlink Ultor Keyboard Review

The Speedlink Ultor is a great little Ten-Keyless Gaming Keyboard and from a pure hardware point of view there’s nothing to fault. That’s as long as you can look past the poor software and ridiculous (IMO) colour scheme. A red keyboard with blue lighting, what were they thinking!?

Asus Sabertooth 990FX R3.0 Motherboard Review

All in all there’s a lot to like about the new Asus Sabertooth 990FX R3.0 motherboard. In its latest guise it not only looks good but it’s super stable and it now features ASUS’ Aura RGB lighting too. The only thing that may hold it back is the price…

 

REVIEW: Asus GeForce GTX 1060 Strix OC Graphics Card

Asus GeForce GTX 1060 Strix OC Graphics Card Review

Once again I find myself blown away by Asus’ latest Nividia GTX Strix Series Graphics Card. The Asus GeForce GTX 1060 Strix OC is (like it’s bigger brother the 1070 Strix OC) one of the best GPU’s on the market today thanks to that awesome DirectCU III cooler with Aura RGB lighting. It’s fast, cool and quite but the AMD RX 480 still runs it close at times…

Toshiba Q300 Pro 512GB SSD Review

Once again Toshiba brings us an impressive SSD in the Toshiba Q300 Pro 512GB, it may not have the looks, but it’s certainly got it where it counts. But its high price tag (at the time of review) makes it look very expensive for the capacity and performance it offers.

 

REVIEW: AMD Radeon RX 480 Graphics Card

AMD Radeon RX 480 Graphics Card Review

The sort of performance offered up by the AMD Radeon RX 480 for the price that is asked is in my mind impressive, but (thanks to a price drop) already the new Nvidia GTX 1060 is snapping at its heels, but (of course) it still costs more.

Nitro Concepts C80 Pure Series Gaming Chair Review

Ok so the Nitro Concepts C80 Pure Gaming Chair may not feature the best build quality and it’s a pig to assemble especially on your own. But once you sit in it all those woes will be forgotten as the C80 Pure is one comfy Gaming Chair.
