During the ASUS monitor showcase not too long ago, we saw one monitor in particular that is ASUS's current best with top-of-the-line hardware built into a single monitor. That monitor is the ROG Swift PG27UQ - a 4K resolution monitor with 144Hz refresh rate with G-Sync, supports HDR and priced at RM10,999.
We saw this mouse appearing first at Computex 2018 - and it's a mouse that we actually have in our test lab since then. The mouse is a testament to Cooler Master's change in direction - they're heading towards a direction where affordability is king while still having RGB flair with the Cooler Master CM310.
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.
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.
ASUS ROG has been making high-performance monitors for years now. Not too long ago, ROG announced the new ROG Strix XG32V gaming monitor here - and now we got the chance to do a full review on it. It's a 31.5-inch curved gaming monitor with 144Hz refresh rate and comes with FreeSync to eliminate screen tearing. Just ASUS being ASUS, they've even added lighting behind the monitor and it can be synced through Aura Sync.
GAMDIAS has been a company that went under the radar for many people. They've always been a peripherals company, but recently they did announce their fancy gaming chair and also a bunch of PC components. Looking at the entire catalog of GAMDIAS products, we can see one common trait in all of them - RGB lighting first, everything else comes after that. The GAMDIAS Hermes P1 RGB mechanical keyboard isn't any different either. It's sprinkled with LEDs all over it!
GAMDIAS. They've been around in the industry for quite a long time, but GAMDIAS isn't particularly pushy when it comes to promotions. We just reviewed their GAMDIAS Hermes P1 RGB mechanical keyboard here, and now we're taking a look at the GAMDIAS Zeus P1 RGB gaming mouse. It's a fancy one, to be honest.
During the early days when mechanical keyboards were starting to get mainstream, we all got ABS keycaps with pad printed legends. Not long after that, the keycaps were etched for backlights to shine through. Fast forward some time and now we arrive at the era of PBT keycaps. There are more and more keyboard brands that are selling boards with PBT keycaps pre-installed, and the latest variant of the Ducky One is one of them. This is the Ducky One TKL with side print PBT keycaps - codenamed DKON1687 too.
In the recent weeks and months, I have personally seen more and more mechanical keyboards with PBT keycaps in the market. Cooler Master is one of them who hopped onto the bandwagon quick enough with their brand new MasterKeys S PBT. Let's see what's different with the MasterKeys S PBT compared with other mechanical keyboards from Cooler Master and the rest of the competitors.
