Feature: Devil in the details

It’s the little details that make HP’s new Omen Sequencer keyboard and Reactor mouse so great

I won't lie. When HP announced a string of new Omen peripherals at this year's Computex show in Taiwan, the thing that really caught my eye was its supposed ear-cooling gaming headset. It even had a cool-sounding name and everything. The HP Omen MINDFRAME. Sadly, that was the one thing missing from the HP Omen demo day I went to last week. I did, however,…

Amazon Prime Day 2018: Best deals on PC games and hardware

This year's Amazon Prime Day is almost at an end. At midnight tonight, Amazon's big day o' deals will be over for another year (or, you know, until Black Friday in November), so if you had a look at the deals yesterday and thought, 'Hmm... I could do with a new SSD or graphics card', then you've still got time to pick one up. I know Amazon is…

Move over ROG, Asus’ new TUF mouse, keyboard and headset are in town

PC gaming's E3 is finally here. No, not that other PC gaming show that's taking place next week at E3 proper. I'm talking about Computex 2018, Taiwan's yearly tech bonanza where the weird and wonderful of PC gaming hardware is shown off to the world for the first time. Sometimes these bits of hardware actually see the light of day. Sometimes they don't. I suspect Asus' new entry-level TUF peripherals,…

HP Omen 15 gets Intel Optane Memory refresh, plus new ear-cooling headset, mice and keyboard peripherals

HP unveiled a mother lode of new Omen bits and pieces this morning, including a 2018 refresh of their Omen 15 gaming laptop with Intel Core i5+ and i7+ processor options (the + bit meaning they come with Intel's super fast Optane Memory gubbins). HP also announced a swathe of new mice and keyboard peripherals for PC, plus the world's first gaming headset with something HP's calling 'active…

Hands on with Acer’s new Predator Cestus 510 mouse and Aethon 500 keyboard

When you think of Acer's Predator range, laptops and monitors are probably the first things that come to mind. This year, however, Acer are going all in on PC gaming peripherals, as they've just unveiled a brand-new mouse and keyboard at their New York press conference - the highly-flexible Predator Cestus 510 and the blue mechanical switch-themed Aethon 500. And I've been plastering my grubby…

Fnatic Flick 2 review: DPI on the X and Y

If two new mechanical keyboards weren't enough for you, esports giants Fnatic have also released a new pair of mice to go with them, the first of which I've got here: the Flick 2. As its name implies, this is the second generation of Fnatic's Flick mouse, now with a newer, grippier grip, a more refined symmetrical shape and a better, more accurate sensor. Let's…

Roccat Horde Aimo review: Where membrane meets mechanical

'Membranical' is a horrible word and a crime against the English language, but those in keyboard circles will probably agree (albeit reluctantly) that it's a fitting description for Roccat's new keyboard, the Horde Aimo. If that last word sounds familiar, it's probably because you're remembering Roccat's Kone Aimo mouse, which belongs to the same family of RGB peripherals. The Horde Aimo is, thankfully, a bit…

Best of CES 2018: The top PC gizmos you’ll want to own this year

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is over for another year. It was a slightly weird show this year, marred by an embarrassing power outage, one too many pointless robots (Cloi, I'm looking at you) and the creeping feeling that the world's biggest tech show might just be becoming a bit irrelevant. Fortunately, PC gamers still have plenty to look forward to in 2018, from giganto gaming screens…

A Quick Celebration Of The Mouse And Keyboard

One of my favourite things about PC gaming is its bastardisation of mundane tools to create fun. If you're sat at a desktop PC as you read this, look down. Look at what's in front of you. A typewriter and an elaborate pointing device. Even if you're at a laptop or netbook, you've got pretty much the same. If you're on your phone or tablet,…
