Feature: Why buy a new mouse when you can just change the switches?

Asus ROG Gladius II Core review

The Asus ROG Gladius II Core is probably one of the oddest gaming mice I've tested in a while.

AOC Agon AG273QZ review

Until recently, anyone looking to buy a 240Hz gaming monitor had to make do with a 1920x1080 resolution. That's fine if you're buying a screen that's 24in or 25in in size, but when many 240Hz monitors stretch that resolution all the way to 27in, many of them become ill-suited to heavy desktop work due to their low pixel densities. Fortunately, the tide's beginning to turn…
