When you're on the path to becoming a power user, you begin to notice certain things that the average person might not. One of those is the difference between typing on a sweet mechanical keyboard with luxurious key action versus pounding away on a run-of-the-mill squishy plank that relies on mushy membranes to register your keystrokes. The difference may seem subtle to the uninitiated, though even casual typists can recognize that there's something inherently superior about typing on a mechanical keyboard, even if they can't pinpoint what exactly it is. Of course, we know it's the mechanical... Read more...

There was once a time when mechanical keyboards were the exception, not the rule. But as more gamers have started to clamor over them, and more mainstream typists enjoy the feel, it seems as if quite a few more companies are reaching out into the mechanical waters. ROCCAT is debuting its first-ever mechanical keyboard this week, dubbed Ryos. It is the first gaming keyboard ever that features per-key lighting and up to two 32-bit ARM cortex processors. The keyboard can display key functions, macros and even health or mana bars thanks to this technology. The included SDK makes what's possible limited... Read more...
It would seem that there are only so many variations and improvements one can make on a three-button mouse, but ROCCAT is trying to reinvent the scroll wheel, as it were. The company is billing the Lua Tri-Button Gaming Mouse as “The Classic 3-Button Mouse: Re-Mastered”. The Lua is equipped with Omron switches and the Pro Optic R2 sensor, seven DPI settings (250, 500, 1000, 1250, 1500, 1750, and 2000), and the ability to adjust the DPI settings incrementally or toggle between frequently-used settings on the fly. The scroll wheel is designed to provide optimal control and tactile feedback... Read more...

For starters, the mouse has true 400, 800, 1600 and 4000 DPI, as well as an R3 sensor and Omron switches. With Easy-Shift[+] technology, users can assign two functions to each mouse button for expanded capabilities, and it also provides a sniper mode for better headshot accuracy. ROCCAT is taking the mouse experience to... Read more...
