Razer BlackWidow X Chroma Review: This Psychedelic Mechanical Keyboard Made Me A Believer

I’m by no means a hardcore gamer — whatever that even means in the growing world of esports and Let’s Plays. I’m not travelling to competitive tournaments or staying up nights, bloodshot and caffeinated, playing the latest and greatest RPG or MMO. Yet I do log a considerable amount of Steam hours, and in my amateur pursuits of gaming glory, I’ve mostly stuck with keyboards included on gaming laptops (small New York apartments abhor gaming rigs). I’ve used plenty of mechanical keyboards before, but for my gaming needs, nothing ever felt substantially better than what was already attached to my laptop. But after two weeks of toying with Razer’s new Blackwidow X Chroma, I’m starting to rethink my position.


This 8-Bit Display Is Made From Gaming Keyboards

Video: Take 160 Logitech gaming keyboards with illuminated keys. Assemble them into a wall. Add a sprinkling of extra electronics and code. And voila, you have a giant 8-bit display.


Razer's New Keyboard Combo Lets You Game From The Comfort Of Your Couch

Although the PC chair is the place to be for a tense Counter-Strike match, there’s no substitute for the comfort of a couch when it comes to a marathon gaming session. Anyone with a PC hooked up to their TV knows that while remote controls and Bluetooth controllers can do a pretty good job, there’s still no substitute for a proper keyboard and mouse. Razer’s new Turret combo packs a foldable keyboard and mouse into a dock, unfurling into a complete gaming platform that can rest on your lap.


LG Made Its Rollable Keyboard More Useful By Adding A Fifth Row Of Keys

All the predictive text and auto-correct tricks in the world can’t make a touchscreen keyboard as usable as a physical set of keys. LG has updated one of the most portable Bluetooth keyboards available with an extra row of keys so that it no longer requires an extra key press to type numbers.


The Smaller (9.7-Inch) iPad Pro Review: Yes, You Want One

Tablets haven’t had a great time lately. In the last two years, sales have plummeted and production has slowed to a crawl. While a lot of that is due to the fact they don’t have the manic upgrade calendar of traditional computers or smartphones, it’s also because they’re really all about consuming the internet. You don’t need the latest processor or most whiz bang GPU to do that. You need something that’s good enough. And for most consumers the tablet they already own is “good enough.”


Razer's New BlackWidow X Keyboard Is $330

A minimalist version of the popular BlackWidow keyboard, Razer’s new BlackWidow X Chroma is smaller, sleeker and more straightforward. It’s also cheaper, says Razer, but it’ll still set you back $330 in Australia. Man, mechanical keyboards are expensive.


This Analogue Mechanical Keyboard Is For Gamers Who Want Complete Control

There are two types of keyboards — analogue and digital. Analogue is mostly found in musical instruments, where the weight placed on a key often defines amplitude. Digital ones are the keys most often found packed away in your laptop and are either on or off. There’s no middle ground. But Wooting’s analogue keyboard wants to be the best of both worlds.


Logitech's New G810 Gaming Keyboard Is A Full-Colour Masterpiece

If you thought Logitech’s previous gaming keyboards were a bit… space-age, then you’re in luck. The third keyboard in the company’s revamped G gaming line-up looks a lot more straightforward and, y’know, rectangular, but still keeps the same excellent mechanical keys and RGB backlighting.


You Probably Shouldn't Let Autocorrect Write Your Dating Profile

Predictive text and neural networks have gotten crazy good in the past few years, to the extent that I would actually consider turning them on from time to time. But should you let a computer that knows your writing habits make you a dating profile? Oh hell no.


Apple's Latest Magic Keyboard And Mouse Make Typing Fun Again

I’ve been using Apple’s Bluetooth keyboard and mouse on a daily basis for around seven years. The design is delightful, and the gadgets are pretty dependable. Then I spent a day with Apple’s new Magic Keyboard and Magic Mouse. Typing is suddenly fun again.
