CM Storm Rapid-i mechanical gaming keyboard is something that I wish their CM Storm Quickfire TK was- a small keyboard with directional keys. The main cons I highlighted was that CM should have ditched the Numpad and provide dedicated buttons for navigation and special keys. The end result is what you see here!

A lot of people do not use Numpad, and if you buy a full-sized mechanical keyboard, you end up paying a premium for a keyboard where you’ll use it far lesser than you would do for multimedia and even macro keys. Keyboard designs like this help to keep the cost down while providing the goodness that mechanical switches provide, along with the familiar built quality that is reflected so far!

Brand new board- Rapid-i! Cherry Brown MX keys. Let’s see how it rolls!

Cooler Master MM710 Gaming Mouse Review

Cooler Master has a good share of mechanical keyboards since its CM Storm days. But its venture towards gaming mouse has an erratic hit or a miss. I did like the CM Storm Alcor and the shell of the CM Storm Mizar but that was about it. Cooler Master really needed something that can have the best of both worlds. But CM Storm Alcor was light, a pro in itself wasn't really pushed ahead.

Cooler Master CM310 Optical Sensor Gaming Mouse Review

Cooler Master has been in peripheral business for a long time, especially with regularly releasing newer keyboards and headsets. The Cooler Master CK550 and the MH751 are two good examples. The gaming peripheral market is over-crowded and yet it manages to sell. The last mouse I've reviewed from Cooler Master is the Alcor and the Mizar. I loved the Alcor optical mouse. It was an agile mouse with all the switches places in reachable areas and I wanted more was the grips the Laser mouse Mizar. This wasn't the only brand that had this point of view at the time since everyone was in the race to push laser sensors and the next best thing. I never really understood why optical sensors were considered less premium to justify lesser premium features when it was hassle-free, compared to laser sensors of certain makes that had quirks that took some firmware and sensor updates implemented by the manufacturer. Logitech was one of the gaming peripheral makers that was the first to jump aboard with its MX series. For some reason, it ditched the MX branding under G series- and now brought it back.
