Best gaming keyboard 2019: Top mechanical and membrane picks

With so many great keyboards to pick from these days, finding the best gaming keyboard for you and your budget can be tricky. First, you've got to figure out whether you'd rather save some money and get a cheap membrane-based one, or maybe splash out a bit and get a mechanical one instead. However, even if you do decide to go down the mechanical keyboard…

Roccat Kain 120 review: My new favourite gaming mouse

There are few gaming mice in this world that make me go, "Ooooooh," as soon as lay my hands on them, but the new Roccat Kain is one of them. Or at least the Roccat Kain 120 does, because technically there are going to be three versions of the Kain launching this September: the entry-level Kain 100, which costs £45 / $50 and has a…

Roccat Renga Boost review: A great open-backed headset

If you asked me to guess the weight of Roccat's new Renga Boost gaming headset, I would swear blind that it's never going to beat the 210g Roccat Noz gaming headset, because, well, just look at the thing. Its 50mm audio drivers are way bigger and chunkier than the Noz's skinny little ear muffs, and even the fold-down microphone has a thicker, more substantial boom…

Roccat Noz review: An ultralight gaming headset that doesn’t carry enough weight

At just 210g, the Roccat Noz is one of the lightest gaming headsets I've worn for quite some time. It's also one of Roccat's least flashy gaming headsets as well, as you won't find a single LED on this £60 / $70 headset, or even their usual giant lion logo draped around the side of the ear cup. Instead, you just get a plain, black…

Roccat Sova review: The ultimate lapboard

There are many things I like about working from home, but having to play games in my office at the weekend because that's where my gaming PC lives isn't one of them. Instead, I want to be downstairs playing games in our living room, where I've got easy access to the kettle / biscuit tin and can actually spend some time with my husband and…

Roccat Kone Pure Owl-Eye review: Small yet mighty

Roccat may be about to be subsumed into the peripherals giant that is Turtle Beach, but for the time being their own gaming accessories are still very much alive and well, including their Kone Pure Owl-Eye gaming mouse, seen here in its recently refreshed white edition. I must say, this little tiddler is quite the sea change after the altogether heftier waistline of the Corsair…

Roccat Vulcan review: A stunning mechanical keyboard that’s fast and tactile for gaming

After testing dozens upon dozens of mechanical gaming keyboards based around Cherry's admittedly excellent MX switches, the new and very non-Cherry MX-based Roccat Vulcan is a breath of fresh air. Employing the company's brand-new Titan switches (or Titan Switch Tactile to give them their full and proper name), the Vulcan offers fast and precise, tactile feedback for typing and gaming alike, and looks pretty damn…

Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2018: Best gaming headset deals

Is that the sound of the Cyber Monday deals gong ringing? Why, yes is it, and with it the beep of a reversing truck full of even more gaming headset deals to replace the ones we had over Black Friday. There are some notable movers and shakers on today's best Cyber Monday gaming headset deals sheet, such as newly refreshed prices for lots of Steelseries…

Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2018: Best gaming mouse and keyboard deals

There's not long to go now before this year's Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals jamboree draws to a close, so if you've been holding out for a top notch gaming mouse and keyboard deal, now is the time to get one. In truth, there aren't that many new Cyber Monday mouse and keyboard deals going on today, as many are still the same price…

Roccat Suora review: An excellent budget mechanical keyboard

Why are the [block id="604483" title="Best gaming keyboard"]s always so expensive? If you want a decent mechanical keyboard, you're often looking at spending at least £100 / $100, if not significantly more if you want all those fancy RGB lighting effects to play with. It's with a great sigh of relief, then, that I've got Roccat's Suora on my desk today, which can be had…

Roccat’s Vulcan mechanical keyboard is one to watch

One of the surprise highlights of this year’s Computex has been, of all things, a keyboard – and a Roccat one at that. It’s not that the German firm makes a load of bad kit – the Khan Pro headset and Leadr mouse are both recent successes – but they’ve also never really broken through to becoming first-rate purveyors of must-have peripherals. The Vulcan, however,…

Roccat’s Titan switches suggest new mechanical keyboards are on the way

After years of championing the membrane keyboard, Roccat look as though they're finally preparing to jump headfirst into the world of proper, honest-to-goodness mechanical keyboards thanks to their newly-announced partnership with leading switch manufacturer TTC. Officially know as the Titan Switch (or the Titan Switch Tactile to give its full mouthful of a name), these will be the first mechanical switches Roccat have designed in-house, and we'll see…

Roccat Khan Aimo review: Better for bass lovers

The Khan Aimo is the final piece of Roccat's smart RGB peripheral puzzle - or at least it is so far, anyway. Like their Horde Aimo keyboard and Kone Aimo mouse before it, the Khan Aimo uses Roccat's intelligent RGB system to create a synchronised light show that adapts to the way you work and play, rippling and fading with every click, tap and pause…

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…

Roccat Khan Pro review: A small wonder?

As gaming headsets go, the Roccat Khan Pro is delightfully diddly. Normally when I put on a headset, it feels like I'm encasing my head in something akin to a bike helmet, so large and cumbersome are their various ear cups that they'd probably provide adequate protection in the event of a roadside collision. That might be because of my apparently pea-sized head, judging by…

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…

Turn Your Phone Into A PC Peripheral With Power-Grid

Hardware makers Roccat were so excited about this that they ran a countdown with the sarcastic slogan: "Isn't PC Gaming Dead?" Now in my view, only nuclear war or Waitrose's Butter Chicken deserve a numerically decreasing build-up. Roccat's reveal can't match the horror of an atom being split, or the happy ping of a microwave delivering mock Indian tastiness, but it is neat: Power-Grid turns…
