Cherry G84-4400 Review – Small But Mighty

Cherry G84-4400 Review – Small But Mighty

  The compact keyboard market seems to be opening up nowadays with everything getting smaller for purposes of convenience and the CHERRY G84-4400 seems to pack a punch for something so small. The compact market mainly consists of small Bluetooth keyboards for usage with an iPad or Android tablet, or they are wireless sets not to dissimilar to that of a laptop’s membrane keyboard. The CHERRY G84-4400 contains CHERRY’s ML key-switches as opposed to my usual CHERRY MX key-switches. The main differences are that the ML switch is...

Cherry MX Board 6.0 Review (G80-3930LYBGB-2)

If you’ve used a mechanical board in your life, then you will have certainly heard of CHERRY and their keyboard switches. As I said in my previous review on the MX Board 3.0, CHERRY have been in the peripherals game for quite some time but the CHERRY MX Board 6.0 is the kind of ‘new kid on the block’ compared to the likes of the Razer Blackwidow line and Corsair’s K range of peripherals. The CHERRY MX Board 6.0 is presented in a clean and sleek box, with the new logo (slightly rounded, newer font, and two cherries instead of the old...

Cherry MX Board 3.0 Review (G80-3850LYBGB-2)

Cherry have been in the peripherals game for many a year now. The versatility of their range of particular switches is mindboggling, so it was no surprise to me to find that the Cherry MX Board 3.0 kept this tradition of intricacy and user-friendliness. First up, the box. Being a Cherry product, the board was presented in a neat and tidy fashion, with the keyboard being the prominent graphic upon the navy blue box. The top right hand corner shows off the switch (in this case the Cherry MX Red switch) and the text: ‘MX INSIDE GOLD CROSSPOINT...

Logitech Announces G610 Orion Brown And G610 Orion Red Mechanical Keyboards

Logitech Announces G610 Orion Brown And G610 Orion Red Mechanical Keyboards

Today Logitech unveiled two new mechanical keyboards under their G branding, with the G610 Orion Brown and G610 Orion Red. As I’m sure many of you have already guessed, the different naming doesn’t refer to the color of the keyboards, but the Cherry MX switches inside. Logitech, being one of the world’s largest maker of computer peripherals, already makes mechanical keyboards with their own Romer G switches, as Ian saw at his Logitech Tech Day in Switzerland, but it must be hard to compete against the weight of the Cherry MX name, so the...

Wooting One – World’s First Analog Mechanical Keyboard

Posted by on Mar 1, 2016 in News | 0 comments

There are tonnes of gaming keyboards that use mechanical switches. The mechanical keyboard trend has been going on strong for the past few years. However, playing games specifically with the keyboard that needs precise inputs (think racing games, Minecraft(to a degree)) is very hard. Controllers where thumbsticks provide more than on or off input is definitely easier. Although, this may change. This keyboard has been described as an analog mechanical keyboard as it’s taken the analog sticks found on gaming controllers, which has more...

Reviewing a 3D Printed Skull Keycap from Shapeways

Reviewing a 3D Printed Skull Keycap from Shapeways

Back in February we bought a Red 3D printed skull keycap from Shapeways created by lkong. We thought, well hey, why not. We wanted an artisan keycap without the artisan cost and we also thought it’d be a good idea to test out this 3D printed idea that’s been kicking about and see if it lives up to the hype. It’s been around 6 months, and we thought it’d be a good time to chime back in after a fair bit of use. The 3D Keycap is sold over at Shapeways for just under £5 which is pretty reasonable. Of course, you get a...
