Steelseries Apex M800 Keyboard Review

Steelseries Apex M800 Keyboard Review

When it comes to desktop keyboards, there are generally two types to choose from. There are those with the typical rubber-dome keys, and those that use mechanical switches. Gamers tend to gravitate toward the latter for many reasons, and the latest keyboard from Steelseries takes a different approach to the mechanical keyboard.

Wacom Cintiq 27 QHD Touch Review

Wacom Cintiq 27 QHD Touch Review

The Wacom Cintiq 27 QHD Touch is what I expected the high end of the digital illustration device world to be. It doesn't feel as "magical" as the iPad Pro, but it's a whole lot more powerful - and professional. It feels like a real professional piece of equipment, something that's been perfected over several iterations - a tool that a top artist would buy again and again. While (as always) there are some changes I might make if I wanted the ideal touch- and pen-friendly display/tablet, at the moment, this is as good as it gets.

Canon imagePROGRAF Pro-1000 Printer Review

Canon imagePROGRAF Pro-1000 Printer Review

Initial setup for the Canon imagePROGRAF Pro-1000 printer is exceedingly user-friendly and simple. The entire process is laid out for the user piece-by-piece, cartridge-by-cartridge. There's a connectivity element as well, one in which you can connect to your PC or smartphone (if you happen to be in need of massive smartphone prints). We were provided several sets of Canon paper with which to test, while this device also works with 3rd-party papers from brands like Canson and Inkpress (with Canon-defined software profiles, that is to say).

SteelSeries Rival 700 Mouse Review

When the average user goes to buy a mouse, they usually don't care much about it, aside from the fact that it works, and is comfortable. However, when a PC gamer is in the market for a new mouse, there are a plethora of options that need to be considered. Buttons, sensors, weight, and more can all affect how your device performs during a game. Today, we're going to take a look at the Steelseries Rival 700.

Beyond Ink Pen Review: Stylus, storage, and battery in one

Beyond Ink Pen Review: Stylus, storage, and battery in one

Is there a reviled-to-riches story quite like that of the stylus? Once a mainstay of smartphones, only to be made a laughing-stock by Steve Jobs and then, ironically, rebooted as the Apple Pencil, the humble pen has been on a peripheral rollercoaster. Enter, then, Beyond Ink's take on the stylus, part smartphone peripheral, part James Bond-esque gadget.

Dyson V8 Absolute Review: A cordless masterclass in suction

Dyson V8 Absolute Review: A cordless masterclass in suction

No home appliance manufacturer inspires outspoken brand loyalty quite like Dyson, but it's taken the British company several tries to get cordless vacuum cleaners right. Latest to the showroom is the Dyson V8 Absolute, a decidedly premium way to cut the cord as you vanquish dust, dirt, and animal hair, with the promise of the sort of efficacy you'd hitherto require a traditional upright vacuum to achieve. Question is, has Dyson delivered enough to warrant its $600 sticker?

Withings Thermo Review : suddenly, a smart thermometer

Withings Thermo Review : suddenly, a smart thermometer

The Withings Thermo is a smart temporal thermometer that uses 16 infrared sensors to take your temperature by sensing heat on your noggin. I've got one right here. A noggin as well as a Withings Thermo, that is to say. The device is surprisingly simple yet complex in its abilities. You can use it with or without its connected app, made available for both Android devices and iPhone.

Razer Turret Review and my living room keyboard dreams

Razer Turret Review and my living room keyboard dreams

I'd been waiting a long time for this keyboard to be released. This, the Razer Turret, a keyboard, mouse, and mousepad made for the living room. I first saw it back at CES 2015. Back then, it went hand-in-hand with the Razer Forge TV, a device that was revealed just before its biggest competitor, the NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV. I was more excited about having a handy keyboard and mouse for my couch than I was for the Android TV platform, no matter the manufacturer. Razer had made the ideal set of controllers for lounging and gaming. It'd be months before I got the opportunity to use this device duo at home.

Nexus 6P Toast Review : Custom-cut Cover

Nexus 6P Toast Review : Custom-cut Cover

Today we're having a peek at the Nexus 6P with a custom-cut wood cover from the folks at Toast. What we've got here is an Ebony Wood cut with ash inlay with front and back cover for the Nexus 6P, both cut by the brand Toast. The custom design comes from yours truly and features a sort of "Ace of Spades" setup with a detailed skull. What we're reviewing here is both the detail the company was able to get and the fit of the cover on the device.

Turtle Beach Elite Pro Headset Review

Turtle Beach Elite Pro Headset Review

The esports-aimed Turtle Beach crew have aimed for a major win with their full Elite Pro headset package. They aspire to be the go-to brand for headsets of the upper-class professional gamer with this headset and its accessories. What's fantastic about this headset isn't the audio, believe it or not (though that's top tier too), it's the comfort. It's the glasses notches. It's the gel-infused memory foam around my ears.
