  • ZOWIE Celeritas II Optical Keyboard Review

    Mechanical keyboards have ruled PC gaming since the original BlackWidow came out back in 2010. Since then, companies have started creating brand exclusive, slightly improved clones of the Cherry MX industry standard switch. But how do you improve over technology that has stood the test of time since the...
  • HyperX Revolver S Headset Review

    It’s always scary being an audiophile. You never know when a manufacturer will make your pair of beloved cans second tier to what they were when you bought them. Not only that, it seems like at the top end, minor improvements and iterations of flagship headphones cost hundreds and...
  • Viewsonic XG2703-GS Gaming Monitor Review

    Whenever I think gaming monitors, I never think Viewsonic is my go to brand. In the esports race to get the fastest refresh rate and the clearest motion, the usual go to monitors all come from Asus, Acer and Zowie. So how does ViewSonic break into the game with...
  • Razer ManO’War 7.1 Gaming Headset Review: Ready for War?

    Surround sound headphones have been around for quite a while now. Hardware options with several drivers in each ear directed multiple sources of sound to the each ear but failed to sound like 5.1 or 7.1 speakers. Taking a new direction, Digital Sound Processing in software matured and with...
  • HyperX Cloud Stinger Headset Review: The Best Gaming Headset Under $100?

    The HyperX Cloud line is almost uncontested as “the” go to headset line for PC gaming and Esports. There’s this stigma amongst audio enthusiasts about gaming branded headsets being inferior. In fact, anything that isn’t directly marketed at the audiophile community is usually frowned upon. That’s not necessarily a...
  • Corsair Polaris Review: The Mouse Pad Of Rainbow Unicorns!

    When I asked to do hardware reviews for Respawn.Ninja, I was fully expecting to review mouse pads at some point. They’re often the most neglected part of a gamer’s peripheral setup. There’s so much emphasis on keyboards, headsets and mice that the humble mousing surface had become an afterthought....
  • BenQ Zowie XL2540 Gaming Monitor Review: The Gaming Monitor For FPS Esports

    When I got the Zowie XL2540 the first thing I did was open up Blurbusters UFO and motion tests and got straight into it. It’s the most feature rich and easily accessible testing suite for motion that I’ve come across and is the easiest way to spot a motion...
  • First Impressions: BenQ ZOWIE XL2540 240Hz e-Sports Monitor

    Zowie monitors arrived shortly after the company was bought by BenQ. Originally we saw rebranding of existing BenQ gaming monitors to Zowie updates with nothing more than a logo change. Come late 2016, we are finally seeing original models under the new e-sports branding. The BenQ Zowie XL2540 is...
  • BenQ ZOWIE Vital External Sound Card Review: Plug and Play Pro Audio

    Zowie as a company has always been focused on one  primary goal. Driverless, plug and play performance peripherals for your PC. Their mice are held at the highest standard no matter what gaming forum you jump on. Purists hate bloatware driver suites for their resource hogging nature – the...
