ZBoard Gaming Keyboard

The Zboard is billed as The Ultimate Gaming Keyboard. What makes the Zboard interesting is the ability to swap out keysets so that the end user is not using a keyboard that is configured for a shooter while trying to type in Windows. Ideazon manages to build a very good keyboard for the desktop but how well does an alternate button scheme work for gaming?

Belkin Onmiview 4 Port KVM Switch Review

Like many computer owners these days, I now have more than one computer. These secondary systems serve many purposes, including operating system and application software testing, firewalls, and as a file/print servers. I have a limited amount of space in my work area and having an extra monitor/keyboard/mouse and other peripherals for four systems for really clutter up the place.

Microsoft Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer Review

Logitech was first to market with a mouse that was both wireless, and optical. Their wireless MouseMan Optical is to date one of my favourite mice thanks to its ergonomic design, cordless convenience, and precision control. But just because Logitech got the jump on Microsoft didn’t mean they had won the game just yet, so it was no surprise that Microsoft would come tearing down the peripherals straightaway with the Porsche of cordless mice: the all-new Microsoft Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer.

Belkin Nostromo n50 & Nostromo n30 Review

Belkin is a company that manufactures a lot of products that can be found in many a computer stores' accessories section. They make everything from wrist pads, mouse pads, armrests…. almost every accessory out there. Until recently, Belkin had not been active in the gaming industry and its many related products. But now, Belkin steps into the gaming grounds with its new line of Nostromo line of products, not one but five – everything from "game pads" to "Speedpads". Two products I have for review today are just two of the complete gaming line of Nostromo products, the n50 Speedpad and the n30 GameMouse.

AOpen R-25W Wireless Mouse Review

With names like Logitech and Microsoft dominating the market for input devices, it’s easy to overlook that a lot of other companies offer some highly affordable and competitive products. In the case of pointing devices, AOpen’s new R-25W wireless mouse is one product that’s been overlooked by the media, but as we came to find, it should be given consideration as a mouse for gamers and regular users alike.

AOpen KB-Media Keyboard Review

Since my review of the Logitech iTouch multimedia keyboard, I’ve been getting some queries regarding different brands of keyboards which include additional function keys. So it was with some interest when I was presented with AOpen’s KB-Media.

Belkin Firewire USB Combo Card Review

If you’ve read the Aten Firewire card review, you’ll know that I am a fan of Firewire (IEEE 1394); if not solely for the bandwidth, for the ease of use as well. It’s no secret that SCSI outperforms Firewire on several fronts, but IEEE 1394 is much easier to configurw and work with, which is more important for less experienced user (or for those fed-up with their tools impeding their productivity).

Logitech Cordless MouseMan Optical Review

In late March, Logitech announced that they would be shipping the world’s first cordless optical mouse: the Cordless MouseMan Optical. It was a ripe time for the announcement since the public was beginning to wonder just when a company would marry the two coolest advances in mousing technology into a single product. People were also beginning to ask whether they should buy a cordless mouse, for convenience, or an optical mouse, for accuracy and reliability. Which is what makes the cordless optical such a cool option: you don’t have to choose between two of the hottest technologies, you can get both in one package.

IOGEAR MiniView PC 2-port KVM Switch Review

I run a pretty hectic life and I find that sometimes it is the most simple of devices that brings the most enjoyment. Many power users can sympathize: two computer systems running in one small working area with only one keyboard, monitor, and mouse to go around… not a happy scene in any camper’s mind. The constant plugging and unplugging between systems is enough to drive any sane individual to move into a secluded shaft nestled deep in the Rocky Mountains.

Siemens ID Mouse Review

The Siemens ID Mouse is one of the first devices to integrate the FingerTIP sensor technology to provide biometric security for any Windows based system (drivers and extensive PDF documentation are included for Win98, Win NT, and Win2K). Identification is based on the biometric characteristics of your fingerprint, called minutiae, which acts as a unique identifier for each person.

Microsoft Strategic Commander Review

With its Sidewinder line of gaming peripherals, Microsoft offers everything from traditional joysticks and steering wheels for simulation fans, to tilt pads for arcade addicts, and now an accessory for the RTS gamer. The Strategic Commander, as they’ve christened it, certainly fits in with the average desktop. If anything, it looks like a black mouse for the left hand. Southpaws take note: this is most definitely not a mouse replacement. Unless you can use the mouse with your right hand, this product is not for you. That little issue aside, how does it perform? Will this baby help your game? Read on and find out.

Saitek Cyborg 3D USB Gold Review

Saitek’s Cyborg controller line is one of their more aptly named series of products. If you’ve ever seen one of the Cyborg joysticks in a print ad before, you’ll know what I mean when I say they look like exquisitely designed, ultra modern implements of gaming death.

Non-Force Feedback Race Wheel Roundup

Games are all about immersion and fun. We don’t have the technology to go full VR, so we turn to the next best thing: immersion through ever more realistic graphics, better sounding effects and music, and realistic gaming peripherals that take us and put us literally in a position closer to that of the jet pilot or race jock. Race wheels take you just that one step closer to being there in the rollcage and roaring down the race track.

Logitech and Microsoft Internet Keyboard Showdown

Internet Keyboards boast special keys which are said to enhance your internet browsing experience and allow convenient access to commonly used functions. Do these pumped up keyboards really have any practical application, or do they add nothing other than some fancy buttons that add little to the keyboard workspace? Neoseeker takes you through the paces on Internet Keyboards from Logitech and Microsoft.
