Razer's not one to let a huge chunk of time fly by without introducing a new mouse. This week, it's introducing the updated Razer Orochi mobile gaming mouse, which boasts a 6400dpi sensor. Moreover, it relies on Bluetooth 3.0, and gets powered by two AA batteries that are optimized for extended life, doubling the battery life of its predecessor with up to 30 hours of continuous gameplay or three months of conventional usage. The company also claims that the sensor trumps just about everything else out there, and if you're looking to stuff someone's stocking, you can get one now (globally) for $69.99.... Read more...
The gaming peripheral gurus at Razer announced today the revamping of its popular DeathAdder mouse, though don't worry if you've grown accustomed to the original model, this isn't a complete redesign. Instead, Razer focused its efforts on upgrading the sensor and making the side grips more comfortable. "We didn’t want to fix anything that wasn’t broken," said Robert Krakoff, president of Razer USA. "We focused instead on enhancing and optimizing the proven merits of the Razer DeathAdder, utilizing next generation technologies and further ergonomics tweaks to make a perfect gaming mouse even better." So, what's changed? The new and improved DeathAdder now sports a 4G infrared sensor... Read more...
A poster on an overclocking forum is drawing widespread Internet attention over claims that Razer's Naga mouse requires a persistent Internet connection in order for it to work properly. The special drivers supposedly require that Naga owners create an account with Razer before they're allowed to configure the mouse, and if Razer's servers go down -- as they were when "channelx99" tried to activate his account -- well, tough luck. Channelx99 is referring to Razer's Synapse 2.0 software in his forum post. Without it, you can still use the Naga mouse, you just can't customize all those fancy extra buttons, which is the rodent's main draw. Sucks, right? Unfortunately, channelx99's story only gets...

First up is the new Vengeance MM200 which features a glide-optimized textile surface that is designed to provide consistent tracking with any gaming mouse sensor. The MM200 features fray-resistant edges as well as a non-slip rubber base. The MM200 comes in four sizes including extra large and wide formats.

Razer's Synapse 2.0 cloud-based software lets you enhance mouse responsiveness and in-game accuracy by... Read more...
If we told you that most eye-controlled computing devices cost as much as $$5,000 or $7,000, would you be surprised? Would you be even more surprised that London scientists have developed a similarly capable device for about thirty bucks using off the shelf parts and a couple of hacked video game consoles? According to CNN, Dr. Aldo Faisal, the lead researcher on the project, was toying with a deconstructed video game console and made an intriguing discovery: "I hacked it and discovered it was very fast and better than any webcam for movement,” he said. “Actually, it was so fast that I found we could record eye movement with it." The way the two-camera device works is that the wearer... Read more...
Remember that BMW-inspired gaming tower from a while back? Hopefully you've still got yours, because a new accessory has cropped up to complete the pairing. BMW and Thermaltake have joined forces in order to provide the Level 10 M gaming mouse, which might be the most insane looking mousing device this side of a Razer Naga. It's a lightweight, finely tuned piece of machinery, and there are plenty of open spaces to peek around at the particulars. It's divided into lower and top part which seems to float over the base, and the steering element of the mouse can be adjusted in regards to height and angle. It also packs a solid aluminum base, air-through ventilation system, and a software inclusion... Read more...
Newsflash: Microsoft isn't just a software company. As if the Surface wasn't reminder enough that the company also knows a thing or two about hardware, it has just introduced new mice and keyboards designed specifically to play nice with Windows 8. Win8 is slated to hit shelves on Oct. 26th, and if you were worried about having kit around to take advantage of the bells and whistles, don't.

It also features BlueTrack Technology so you can use it on virtually any surface, and it includes Backpack Mode to power down and sleep along with the computer... Read more...
Razer's new Ourboros mouse for gamers might be the funkiest looking rodent this side of the planet Ork, but it's with comfort and ergonomics in mind that the peripheral maker designed it. What's more, left-handed gamers will be thrilled to know Razer didn't play favorites with this particular mouse, which sports an ambidextrous design. "Designed for excellence and total ownage, the Razer Ouroboros was intended to be wielded by all serious gamers looking to win any FPS, RTS or RPG with custom-made dominance," said Robert 'RazerGuy' Krakoff, president of Razer USA.

Don't ever accuse Razer of being insensitive to the plights of left-handed gamers who don't have nearly as many options for gaming mice as right-handers do. Sympathetic to this fact, Razer just announced its Taipan mouse, an ambidextrous rodent that doesn't care which hand you use to move your line of sight. Hooray for equality. "Razer’s ergonomic scientists collaborated with top e-Sports athletes from professional gaming teams such as Empire, Frenetic Array, Mousesports, Quantic, Rox.Kis and Type II Gaming, to pinpoint the optimal shape, weight, and balance required in an ambidextrous mouse at the highest levels of gameplay," Razer explains. "Its symmetrical shape with narrow footprint... 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 at each step for better accuracy. One welcome feature is a v-shaped design that allows both righties... Read more...
Corsair is relatively new to the gaming peripherals market, and the company undoubtedly took its time refining these products before stepping up to compete. The mechanical keyboards are designed to enhance gamers’ performance, with the K60 tailored for First-Person Shooters and the K90 for RTS and MMO gaming, and they’re both built to withstand years of abuse, resist crud buildup under the keys, and look good too. The M60 and M90 mice are designed to complement the K60 and K90 keyboards, respectively. Although the mice have quite a bit in common, they have a few features that set them apart from one another and make them a bit more suited to one type of gaming over another... Corsair...

Dedication. Diligence. Sacrifice. These are the words that describe us here at Hot Hardware, because when we set out to review these Corsair Vengeance gaming keyboards and mice, we sent the family off to bed night after and night and worked deep into the early morning hours. We spent many--many--hours testing, testing, and testing some more, all for you, dear readers. Granted, the primary testing method was gaming, but that counts as work in this industry. Corsair Vengeance K60 We’re also typing this review with the keyboards (in turn), and after spending some quality time with the Corsair Vengeance K60 keyboard/M60 mouse and K90 keyboard/K90 mouse combos, we’re fans of all four devices....

ROCCAT announced the Savu, a hybrid mid-sized gaming mouse, which ROCCAT CEO René Korte calls “The planet’s premiere mid-size gaming mouse – period”. The rest of the press release is just as effusive, but the Savu does boast some serious features. 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.

Hot on the heels of the release of the Naga Hex Red Wraith Edition gaming mouse, Razer announced an update to the Razer Naga MMO gaming mouse. The overhaul of the mouse is meant to improve its overall ergonomics, making it easier and more comfortable to use as well as facilitating better performance. The Naga MMO gaming mouse features an anti-slip and anti-fingerprint matte finish, a trio of interchangeable side panels to allow gamers to choose their preferred contour and grip, and repositioned top buttons that have been moved a bit for better actuation. What hasn’t changed is the 12-button thumb grid, so if you’ve become accustomed to that particular feature for your many macros,... Read more...
What’s more fun than a gaming mouse? A gaming mouse designed specifically for hacking and slashing games, which is precisely the raison d’etre of the Razer Naga Hex Wraith Red edition.

As the saying goes, you learn something new every day. Today, that tasty morsel of knowledge is the fact that according to the Trade Agreements Act of 1979 (aka the “TAA”), federal agencies in the U.S. are required to purchase certain products that are made only in the good old U.S. of A. (or in other designated countries). Thus, products the government buys must be TAA-compliant, which sounds like kind of a headache for federal IT buyers. Apparently, those “designated countries” include Taiwan, where Logitech is manufacturing peripherals that pass TAA muster. (We know, Logitech isn’t based in Taiwan, but that’s where these particular goods are being made.)... Read more...
Left-handed gamers have traditionally been the red-headed stepchildren of peripheral makers, so to speak. They've been neglected, overlooked, and just plain treated as if they don't exist. There are exceptions, of course, though in the grand scheme of things, left-handed gamers don't have many peripherals to choose from that are specifically tuned for southpaws. The good news is Razer recognizes this and is committed to launching a left-handed version of its Naga MMO gaming mouse. It all started with a Facebook post in which Razer co-founder, CEO, and Creative Director Min-Liang Tan challenged left-handed gamers to prove it would be worth Razer's time and effort to design a Naga MMO mouse for...

In order to charge $250 for a keyboard, it has to be something pretty special. Razer thinks its new Star Wars: The Old Republic themed gaming keyboard qualifies, which is just one of several themed items now up for preorder. The other items include a mouse, headset, and mouse mat, all molded and decked out in an Old Republic theme. So how else do you justify a $250 plank? This particular one comes with a multi-touch LCD track panel built into the right-hand side with interchangeable digital faction symbols. It's a full color display, and above it sit ten dynamic adaptive tactile keys. There are over 100 fully programmable "Hyperesponse" keys, gold-backlit illumination throughout, multi-color...
