epicgear-defiant-mms-gaming-keyboardBy Josh Jackson @ PureOC

Have you ever met someone for the first time and felt like you hit it off with that person right away? I had that feeling with EpicGear at CES 2017. To be fair, they had shiny new tech and that kind of thing usually happens with my extroverted personality anyways. Still, EG had an impressive CES display and now we get the opportunity to take an up close and personal look at their equipment. EG is a subsidiary of Geil, who you probably recognize for the RAM products. EG however, is specializing in gaming peripherals and I like the concepts they are trying to succeed on. Today we’re going to start the reviews with the Defiant Keyboard and the MMS Mechanical Keyswitches. That’s because we’ll also have a mouse, a cable manager and headset reviews coming shortly hereafter. It seems like EG is offering some great options in the gaming peripheral market, but we’ll need to take a closer look to really get a feel for how “Epic” their gear actually is. While I’m not worried about their chances, let’s first take a look at a beautiful logo I cropped out of the website and a quick statement about the company. By the way, did you know GeIL was an acronym? It was news for me as well.

g-skill-ripjaws-km570-mx-keyboardBy Hilbert Hagedoorn @ GURU3D

We review the KM570 MX mechanical keyboard from the G.Skill gaming series. The unit is affordable and has been fitted with Cherry MX (in our case) red switches. It is a keyboard that offers value for money and doesn’t go all berserk with LED activity. Just subtle red back-lit keys and if you want to, you can animate them.

logitech-g213-prodigy-gaming-keyboardBy Kevin Pocock @ Hardware Heaven

The G213 Prodigy is one third of Logitech’s Prodigy series; a collection of products targeting the widest possible scope of gamers seeking functional features. This doesn’t sound the most captivating of offerings, but we were surprised at the punchy gaming performance offered by the G403 Prodigy mouse. Let’s see if the G213 can enhance our opinion of the series.

cooler-master-masterkeys-lite-l-comboBy Immanuel Decano @ Legit Reviews

For those of us gamers or PC users who love the look presented by RGB PC peripherals Cooler Master has something in store for us. In addition to Cooler Master’s cooling units and cases they also produce computer peripherals such as keyboards, mice, headsets, earphones, and mousepads. Cooler Master has just released a mem-chanical (membrane switches with a tactile feel similar to that of a mechanical switch but longer life than conventional membrane switches) keyboard and mouse combo that could potentially make a great RGB addition to a casual home setup/beginner’s gaming rig. Here at Legit Reviews we were given the new affordable (considering the starting price of quality RGB gaming keyboards run for around $100 to start) Masterkeys Lite L Combo by Cooler Master at $59.99 shipped with a two year warranty included for both keyboard and mouse. For younger gamers and/or those of us shopping on a budget this may be the RGB keyboard for you.

corsair-k70-rgb-rapidfire-gaming-keyboardBy E. Fylladitakis @ AnandTech

Today we are having a look at the K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE, the keyboard born from another exclusive deal that Corsair has made with Cherry’s new mechanical key switch, the “RAPIDFIRE”. It is a switch designed specifically for gaming by combining light actuation force and higher actuation speed. On paper it does sound interesting, and today we’ll put its design to the test to see if there’s any actual improvement over Cherry’s “classic” designs.

Nearly every PC component company is now coming out with their own line of gaming peripherals, and Patriot, the known manufacturer of memory-related products, decided to jump into the bandwagon with the release of one keyboard, one mouse and one headset. In this capsule review we are going to have a close look at one of the trio: the Viper V760 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard.

cougar-attack-keyboard-x3-450M-gaming-mouseBy E. Fylladitakis @ AnandTech

Cougar is a German manufacturer of PC components that was founded in 2007. The company originally focused on cases and PSUs, but recently diversified towards gaming peripherals as well. A year ago we had a look at their first and, at the time, the most advanced keyboard and mouse they had to offer. Following the success of their 700-series peripherals, Cougar released nearly a dozen additional keyboards and mice during this past year, designed to cover many tastes and budgets. Today we are having a look at one of their newest keyboards and mice, the Attack X3 mechanical gaming keyboard and the 450M optical gaming mouse respectively.

gskill-ripjaws-km780-rgb-keyboardBy Jon Martindale @ KitGuru

G. Skill may be better known for their memory and storage products, but they are expanding their portfolio. Today we look at their new keyboard – the Ripjaws KM780 RGB. This keyboard incorporates Cherry MX mechanical switches and clear housings to deliver uniform RGB backlighting. It also packs a metal piped frame, detachable wrist rest, media keys, macro switches and a number of other fancy functions, all into a brushed aluminium frame. This is no budget product, as RGB mechanical keyboards tend to be – but can it justify the price tag?

corsair-strafe-mechanical-keyboardBy E. Fylladitakis @ AnandTech

Corsair just released a new mechanical motherboard, the STRAFE, bringing cost-effectiveness to gamers who want the versatility of an advanced programmable keyboard that may be limited to red backlighting but supposedly lacks no practical features over the RGB models. The truly interesting part however is that the STRAFE has an MSRP of just $110, nearly half the MSRP of the K70 RGB ($200).

cougar-200k-gaming-keyboardBy Jake @ PureOC

Today we’re looking at the Cougar 200K gaming keyboard, an affordable board that sports rather smart styling and a couple of interesting features, such as lighting effects and anti-ghosting technology. We often see such features on expensive keyboards, but Cougar looks to be targeting gamers who are on a tight budget yet still want something capable.
