Today we have something out of the ordinary. When we were presented with all of ZOWIE's peripherals, we saw something that needs addressing. ZOWIE only has one keyboard in the market - and that's the Celeritas II that we reviewed here, but they have a total of 10 different mice. That's excluding the different colors that each of the mouse has. With the amount of ZOWIE mouse available in the market, I'm sure there are users who are overwhelmed - like us.
In today's standards for high-speed storage devices, SSDs that uses the NVMe interface take the crown. As of now, SSDs available in the market is still far away from hitting the NVMe interface limit.

We've played with quite a fair amount of keyboards here at Nasi Lemak Tech - and we've come across many different switches that are available in the market. However, they're all binary switches - meaning they only turn on or off. ZOWIE, being an eSports-centric brand that they always have been, created the Celeritas II. It has a few interesting design choices - including the usage of Flaretech optical switches.

Just ASUS being ASUS, they've even added lighting behind the monitor and it can be synced through Aura Sync.
