    SteelSeries Sensei Mouse Is Familiar But Enhanced

    I reviewed the SteelSeries Xai early last year, pronouncing it elegant and effective. I’d still recommend it today, except for the fact that a new and improved version has just been announced: the Sensei. The simple and comfortable design of the Xai is intact, but there’s a new metal surface (which has yet to prove itself; the old surface was great), customizable lighting, and… Read More

  • Microsoft's Wireless Desktop 2000 Encrypts Your Keystrokes

    If you’re concerned about keyjacking attacks, in which a wireless keyboard’s signal is intercepted and information extracted from the stream, this might be of interest to you. Microsoft’s new Wireless Desktop 2000 has 128-bit AES encryption built right in. Not much help if someone’s looking over your shoulder, but at least they can’t snatch your credentials right… Read More

  • Logitech Releases Keyboards, Mice, And Speakers For iPads and Android Tablets

    Way back in the old days I bought a keyboard for my Palm V, thinking that I would be able to type into it and become a proto-ultraportable ninja. That never worked, and I worry that Logitech is bringing us more of the same with this dump of tablet accessories including a $70 keyboard, Bluetooth mouse (for Android tablets only), and wireless speakers. The keyboard and speakers work with both… Read More

  • Microsoft Announces Some New Mice: Express Mouse And Comfort Mouse

    Microsoft released some new mice today with some pretty direct names: Express Mouse and Comfort Mouse. I’d have gone with Magic Mouse, but Apple probably already took that. Read More

  • Razer Releases Special "Black Edition" Of My Favorite Mouse, The Death Adder

    When I look back over all the mice I’ve reviewed in my time, one particular thing always comes to mind: “What the hell are you doing with your life?” But then I get over it, dry my tears, and continue thinking about how many mice come and go, but there are a few that still stand out as the best. The Death Adder is one of them; I reviewed it a couple years back, after it… Read More

  • The Chameleon X-1 Is Both Mouse And Gamepad? Witch! Burn The Witch!

    Let me just say that when this thing was first brought to my attention, I made just about the sourest “skeptical face” I’ve ever made, and that’s saying something. But I’m going to be honest, when I saw what they’d done, I relaxed a bit, though my skepticism is still mostly intact. I mean, there are so many ways this thing could have totally sucked, but it… Read More

  • Review: Mad Catz Cyborg R.A.T. 9 Gaming Mouse


    Short version: A striking and powerful, but heavy and inconvenient, gaming mouse. Definitely unique, though. Read More

  • Elecom Outs Bluetooth 3.0 Mouse

    Elecom’s new Bluetooth 3.0 laser mouse will come with an 800/1600 DPI resolution and a quite compact size of 74.3×52.3×33.4mm. The little thing will weigh 43g without the 2 AAA batteries. As you probably aware BT 3.0 is fast and way better than 2.0. Although I’m not entirely sure a mouse is in need of being potentially able to stream HD video directly to a TV.

  • Review: Gyration Air Mouse Elite (Now For Mac)


    Short version: A perfectly usable air mouse with the usual drawbacks, but simple and user-friendly configuration. A handy accessory for HTPCs and for those who just like to lean back. Read More

  • Review: Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse


    Short version: An interesting little gadget, but practicality seems to have given way to design a bit more than is necessary. Read More

  • Hands-On With The New Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse

    Microsoft was kind enough to ship me the just-announced Arc Touch Mouse and I’ve had a few hours to play with it. I liked the original Arc Mouse; does the new version improve on the design, or is this Microsoft innovation destined for the “curiosities” bin? Read More

  • Microsoft Makes The Arc Touch Mouse Official


    After being leaked a number of times in various ways, officially and unofficially, Microsoft’s Arc Touch Mouse (not Arc Mouse Touch, as previously suggested) is finally being given an official launch. It’s got a Bluetrack sensor, a touchable strip instead of a scroll wheel (with haptic feedback), and you turn it on and off by cracking its back. They sent me one to check out, but… Read More

  • Microsoft's Arc Mouse Touch Shows Up In A Few More Shots

    The mystery product rumored and outed as the Arc Mouse Touch has been pictured in a few more marketing shots — this time in more real-world locations. How are these getting out? Is someone hacking deep into Microsoft’s databases? Monitoring email? Van Eck phreaking?! Oh… it turns out Microsoft has the pictures up on their retail partners site. Read More

  • Razer Lachesis Upgraded With New Sensor


    Razer’s Lachesis, an ambidextrous mouse which, I’m not going to lie, I didn’t like very much when I reviewed it, is getting a refresh. There’s a brand new 5600DPI sensor in there, plus you can now change the color of the LED lighting. But I wonder if they fixed the shape and button layout that gave me so much trouble way back in ’08? The Lachesis is selling for… Read More

  • Highly Sculpted Mouse Fits Your Hand Exactly, Or That's The Plan Anyway

    There are, as I have had many opportunities to observe, several approaches to “fitting” a mouse. You’ve got the “universal,” which has a sort of generally pleasing shape, like the SteelSeries Xai. You’ve got the highly-sculpted ones, which have individual grooves for your thumb and a sort of lopsided profile. A good recent example would be the Cyber… Read More

  • Razer's TRON mouse and keyboard get priced and semi-dated

    The TRON gaming hardware we got exposed to at E3 are headed your way later this year, though you may be disappointed at the price. True TRON fanboys won’t buck at paying $150 for a keyboard and $100 for a mouse, but the average gamer might. Read More

  • Listing for "Arc Touch Mouse" suggests a Microsoft response to Apple's Magic Mouse

    You may remember the Arc Mouse, an attractive and portable little thing (marred in my opinion by the sensor placement) I reviewed back in ’08. It’s a nice design, perhaps one of Microsoft Hardware’s best, and now there are signs pointing to a touch-based update — perhaps using one of the technologies I saw on my visit to Microsoft Labs.

  • Hands-on: Razer's StarCraft II-themed mouse, keyboard, and headset


    For the last six months or so, whenever I was on Razer’s site for whatever reason, I always would check the StarCraft II section for updates. There were silhouettes there for ages, teasing Blizzard-branded peripherals, yet aside from the messenger bag we gave away, we saw no more of said peripherals than we saw of the dark side of the moon. But E3 this year was the launch date, and I… Read More

  • Review: Mionix Naos 5000 gaming mouse


    Short version: There’s lots to like, but not much unique, about this mouse from relative newcomer Mionix. And if it can’t beat the others on price… Read More

  • New Microsoft Bluetrack mice are portable, affordable, and colorful

    If you’re looking for a nice, functional, portable mouse, Microsoft has your number. While their high-end mice tend to lose their luster in the face of cooler gear from Logitech and Razer, Microsoft’s mobile line has always been comfortable and functional. They’ve just expanded it a bit with a few new compact models so you’ve got more than ever to choose from. Read More
