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 Clutch 2 review: The right-handed version of the (still right-handed) Flick 2

After making a strong impression with their pair of Streak mechanical keyboards and lightweight, symmetrical Flick 2 mouse, Fnatic are rounding out their second gen peripheral line-up with the decidedly right-handed gaming mouse, the Clutch 2. Featuring the same Pixart 3360 sensor, Omron switches and more or less all the same specs as its Flick sibling, is this one better best gaming mouse material? Let's find…

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…

Feature: A mouse that (literally) carries its weight

Steelseries Rival 600 review: Worth its weight in gold?

How much would you normally spend on a mouse? £10? $20? Maybe even £30 if I'd been particularly stung (or should that be bitten?) by a dodgy mouse in the past, but it would have to be a really good one - possibly even the bestest best gaming mouse ever - for me to consider spending more. Indeed, if you thought shelling out £70 for the Asus ROG…

Asus ROG Pugio review: Lefties rejoice

Finally, a proper ambidextrous gaming mouse (of the mice I've looked at, anyway). After the sort-of-but-not-really symmetrical designs of the Steelseries Rival 110 and the HyperX Pulsefire FPS, the Asus ROG Pugio is the real deal, offering right and left-handed comfort in equal measure. It's quite expensive as gaming mice go, coming in at £62 in the UK and $90 in the US, but much…

Asus ROG Gladius II review: An expensive gaming mouse you probably won’t mind shelling out for

I'd normally balk at the idea of spending over £30 on a mouse. I've never been one for owning flashy gizmos or the latest and greatest, so the thought of forking over more than double that for something like the Asus ROG Gladius II (which currently costs just over £70 in the UK and $95 in the US) would, ordinarily, be positively horrifying. Thankfully, the…

HyperX Pulsefire FPS review: What it lacks in customisation, it makes up for in comfort

If you've ever been within spitting distance of a Plunkbat chicken dinner, you know the importance of having a light, nimble mouse under your fingers. You won't be tucking into anything even remotely bird-shaped if you've only got something big and bulky like the Roccat Kone Aimo or Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB at your disposal. Instead, you need a mouse you can move with ease…

Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB and MM800c RGB Polaris review: The ultimate rainbow lightshow

When I first saw Corsair's Scimitar mouse a couple of years ago, I thought it was the most bonkers-looking thing I'd ever seen. Just like its equally mad successor, the Scimitar Pro RGB I've got here, it had 12 mechanical buttons on the side. Twelve! This is a calculator, not a mouse, I thought to myself at the time. How could anyone possibly need 12 individual…

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…

Steelseries Rival 110 review: A great gaming mouse for smaller hands

After using the jumbo Roccat Kone Aimo for a couple of weeks at the end of last year, Steelseries' Rival 110 comes as quite a relief. Not only is it a much more petite kind of mouse that's infinitely better suited to the overall size of my hand, but it's also significantly lighter and easier to move around a mouse mat, weighing just 87.5g as…

Roccat Kone Aimo review: A jumbo gaming mouse with oodles of flexibility

When I started my first tech job, the mouse waiting for me on my desk was utterly enormous. Left there by its previous owner, it was the Steelseries World of Warcraft Cataclysm Gaming Mouse - an absolutely beastly bit of plastic that looked like it had just come out of a hot oven. It was wholly unsuited to general office work and made my hand…

Logitech G903 & Powerplay review: A wireless gaming mouse recharged by its own mat

I've already reviewed the Logitech G603, which for me was the perfect, non-ridiculous wireless gaming mouse but for some facepalmy design that made it too uncomfortable to use without brutal modification. Today, I've got its bigger, also wireless brother, the Logitech G903 to look at to see whether that, too, might be worthy of the title 'best gaming mouse'. The G903 has similar but improved…

Logitech G603 wireless gaming mouse review

After too many years and far too many mice which now clog up a desk drawer, I thought I'd found my new best gaming mouse. Wireless, multi-device, speedy and responsive but without looking like a broken piece of someone's Gears of War Halloween costume. A gaming mouse that did not look like a gaming mouse: Valhalla indeed. Logitech's G603 is so, so close to being…

I Have A Mouse Problem

I suppose I am a bit of a mouse enthusiast. Not in the '5000000 dots per inch sensor, engraved LED skull and crossbones design" sort of way, because I am neither a competitive gamer or a 14-year-old boy. It's more of a wider interest in how the same essential concept - a plastic lump we move around on a desk in order to move a…

Week in Tech: MMOuse, Shield, Superwide Is Super Cool

Not being hugely of the MMO persuasion, the extent to which fixed-configuration mice generate significant anguish is, to coin a Tuckerism, beyond my jaunty-bonneted purview. However, the fellows at ROCCAT are apparently feeling someone's pain and the result is the new Nyth, a modular mouse for MMOists that comes complete with 3D-printing intrigue. Rejoice. Meanwhile, I've had a little face time with both the Nvidia…

Wot I Think: Logitech G602 Mouse

I'm always a little confused whenever anyone starts talking about the need to replace the mouse with something touch-y or pad-y or any other kind of funnily-shaped objected intended to act as ferryman between the world of flesh and the world of pixels. I like mice. They do the job well, they've evolved into high-precision, versatile objects and they remain a great metaphor for remotely…

Phew! It’s My Yearly Mouse Update

So, after last year's discussions, I went for the now-out-of-production Razer Diamondback, on which the laser has just failed. In truth it was a bit of a relief, because I never fully adjusted to it, and I felt it was too low-budget for a man of my exotic stature. Time for something new, clearly, and the newness I've just received is the Logitech G500. An…

FutureMouse

Idle hardware browing leads me to Techradar's coverage of Microsoft's concept mouse project. Usually, attempts to redesign one of the most fundamental features of the PC is something I greet with a sneer - how can you be so stupid as to waste so much money on trying to replace the irreplaceable? When it's Microsoft, though, for all their flaws it's worth paying attention to.
