iRULU Walknbook 2 - Keyboard Stand with Tablet

First of all I would like to thank iRULU for reaching out and sending me the Walknbook 2 10.1in Tablet PC for review. It can be found for £140 on AmazonUK and $155 on AmazonUSA. Furthermore, iRULU were kind enough to send me a protective case for the tablet PC, which can be bought separately for £7 on AmazonUK (I’ll briefly mention the case within my packaging and accessories section).

Here’s my video review of the Tablet PC:

Review of the Logitech G502 Proteus Core Gaming Mouse – Improved ergonomics over the Logitech G303

Logitech G502 Mouse - Side view

After having reviewed the Logitech G303 mouse, which shares the same Pixart PMW 3366DM sensor as the G502, I thought to buy myself the more ergonomic G502 – I bought it for £35 (as it was on a deal on AmazonUK) – as prices fluctuate from £70 to £35, I thought to review it at the £55 price tag, which is a mid-point between the two.
The mouse can be found on AmazonUK for around £55 & AmazonUSA for around $55 (note the prices do heavily fluctuate) – as I am a UK based reviewer I will be reviewing it at the £55 price tag.

As a note: I didn’t receive this for review nor receive any promotional discount – I am reviewing it as a purchase as I thought it would be useful to readers to know the differences between the two mice. On top of that I bought the mouse as the ergonomics of the G502 looked better for my needs and hand size (17-19cm from middle finger to palm).

Here’s my video review of the mouse:

Logitech G303 Mouse - Box

First of all I would like to thank Logitech for sending me the mouse for review. The mouse can be found on AmazonUK for around £50 & AmazonUSA for around $50 – as I am a UK based reviewer I will be reviewing it at the £50 price tag.

After previously reviewing the SteelSeries Sensei [RAW], the Razer DeathAdder Chroma and even the Steelseries Sensei Wireless, I was interested to see how the Logitech G303 would compare and furthermore if it could dethrone my Anker mouse, which is my daily mouse, whereby the other mice weren’t able to dethrone it.

Here’s my video review of the mouse:

HAVIT HV-KB366L RGB Mechanical Keyboard Review – The best built keyboard in its price range!

Pros: Design and build quality, RGB colours, clicky-sound is satisfying (subjective), price
Cons: No wrist rest, not a well known Chinese switch manufacturer,  no additional accessories, RGB colour is per section and not individual, heavy switch to type on (subjective), little bit of key cap flex, available in US layout only

Build Quality & Accessories: 8.5/10
Design & Look: 9/10
Value: 8/10
Performance: 8/10
My final Rating: 8.5/10

HAVIT HV-KB366L - RGB colours

First of all I would like to thank Gary from HAVIT for sending me the keyboard for review.
After having previously reviewed various mechanical keyboards that had various different mechanical switches on them, I was intrigued to see what HAVIT had in store. I’ve previously been really impressed with the price to performance ratio from HAVIT products – where they’ve been able to produce good quality products at an affordable price.

The HAVIT HV-KB366L can be found for around £70 on AmazonUK and around $90 on AmazonUSA. As you’ll be able to see from the conversion rate, the price in the US is much more favourable, however as I am based in the UK, I will be reviewing it at the UK pricing and availability.
On another note, this keyboard can unfortunately only be bought in a US layout. At the time of writing there’s currently no UK layout available, which can be a deal breaker for some.

SteelSeries Apex M800 - Looks

After having previously reviewed the original Apex gaming keyboard, I was very much intrigued to see how the new RGB mechanical keyboard, that utilises SteelSeries’ very own QS1 switch would compare and furthermore stack up against other mechanical keyboards out there on the market, namely those using Cherry MX switches.
I would like to thank SteelSeries for yet again sending me the keyboard for review.
The Apex M800 can be found for around £140 on AmazonUK and around $190 on AmazonUSA. I should note the version I got sent has the UK Layout keyboard.

MSI 24GE 2QE - Design

First of all I would like to thank MSI for sending me out the MSI 24GE 2QE for a trial review. I got to keep the all-in-one (AIO) PC for a set time, where I put it through its paces and tested it on a daily basis to see how it compared to my actual desktop PC.
The MSI 24GE 2QE can be bought for near £1300 or around $1300 for the basic version and $1600 for the version with a few more features.
The AIO comes in different shapes and forms, where the GPU, screen and even the additional extras can differ.

Sumvision Nemesis Ultra - Illumination

First of all I would like to thank Sumvision for sending me the keyboard for review. The keyboard can be found on AmazonUK for £55. This keyboard is one of the cheapest mechanical keyboards I’ve ever come across, which also uses a switch that I’ve never heard about – the “Content Mechanical Switch” – which is, according to Sumvision, identical to the “Kailh Mechanical Switch“, which can be found in recent Razer keyboards (Razer and others re-brand these switch as their own – ie. the “Razer Switch” is in fact made by Kailh)

Review of KeyPop’s GID key caps, Keychain for Cherry MX Mechanical Keyboards and the Filco wrist rest

Before getting into this review, I want to say thanks, yet again to James from KeyPop.net for sending me out the keycaps and wrist rest for review!
After having previously reviewed some of Keypops gear, I was interested to see how these items would compare!

Keypop - Wrist rest and key caps

I made a video review about the keycaps and wrist rest I received, so do check out the video out too:
