    The Mobi is unlike most other SD cards. Whilst it still saves photos in the normal way, it lets you access them in a completely different way. Included in the card is a WiFi hotspot that you can access with a smartphone or tablet app (IOS / Android / Kindle Fire). The process is extremely simple; all you have to do is pair your smartphone to the card using the 10 digit ...

    You know, it's nice and refreshing to review a different type of product for a change. Today we have the Audio Technica ATH-A900X, which are high grade headphones. They're often thought of as entry-level audiophile headphones. We recently wrote a guide about audio products that you should check out. These headphones, the A900X, are some of the most favored in the sub $200 range. Time to see if they live up to their reputation!

    This isn't a gaming headset, which you may be accustomed to seeing here at GND-Tech, since we're primarily a gaming website. There's no microphone included, nor can you attach one by conventional means. It's designed for high quality audio playback. Despite the reasonable price, no gaming headset will ever approach headphones such as these in terms of sound quality: not for music, not for movies, not even for gaming. I'm honored to be the first to review a high end audio product here at GND-Tech.

    In the MMORPG/MOBA gaming world, access to a vast array of buttons, whether on a mouse or keyboard, is a must. The Thermaltake VOLOS gaming mouse is no exception to this trend supporting a whopping 14 independently configurable buttons. This combined with the host of other gaming-themed features, should give the VOLOS a tactical advantage in the world of online gaming.



    In this review we will be looking at the black VOLOS (MO-VLS-WDLOBK-01). At a glance, Tt did a swell job packing as many features as they could into the single unit. Besides the vast array of configurable buttons, the VOLOS sports an 8200 DPI Avago laser sensor, with on-the-fly sensitivity switching. The LEDs inside the center scroll wheel, left-click button, and palm logo can also be customized to any color you want. On paper, this seems like a pretty solid mouse! Continue on for a more detailed look at this mouse's specs.




    The VOLOS by Tt eSPORTS falls into the high-end gaming mouse category designed for MMORPG or MOBA games. ...

    It's been a while since we looked at a product from QPAD, back when the 5K took the prize for being the most comfortable mouse on test. Two and a half years later QPAD are back on GND, this time with a Mechanical Keyboard by the name of the MK50. According to QPAD's website, the M50 is a "stripped down version of the MK-85, the QPAD MK-50 offers the same rock-solid quality and feel, as its bigger sibling, but without the extras." This is to say, their entry level keyboard and it features MX Cherry Red Switches.

    Before getting into the review, it's a good idea to understand exactly what a mechanical keyboard is and how it's vastly superior to a normal keyboard. This guide ...

    Cooler Master is at it again adding more and more peripherals to its CM Storm lineup. CM Storm is Cooler Master's gaming themed class of peripherals. In the past Cooler Master has been known for their large selection of heat sink fan assemblies, however fairly recently they have jumped head first into the peripheral world. So far they have done quite good for themselves. The CM Storm lineup of keyboards including the Quickfire Rapid and the Trigger have been some of the best keyboards we have had the pleasure of reviewing.

    On paper the CM Storm Pulse-R gaming headset looks impressive. At a glance it features an aluminum construction, 42mm drivers, white accent LED illumination, and slide volume and mic controls. It's design and construction really sets this headset apart from the rest. But enough talk, ...

    Thermaltake is at it again with yet another addition to its mechanical gaming keyboard lineup. The Meka series from Thermaltake is the lineup of gaming themed keyboards. Most have illuminated keys, macros, or other gaming related functions. The G-Unit model comes in three different flavors: black, green, and white. In this review we will be looking closely at the black edition.

    At a glance, the Meka G-Unit appears to come with almost every feature a gamer would want. First, this keyboard makes use of Cherry MX Black switches which are considered to be the best switch type for gaming. It is also fully illuminated, equipped with twelve customizable macro keys, and includes a built in palm rest to keep you hand relaxed while gaming.

    There are many advantages of mechanical keyboards over typical membrane style keyboards. The biggest advantage is the durability of the switches. Mechanical keyboards will long outlast the typical style. There are also several switch styles which ...

    Well folks, it looks like we have another keyboard on our test bed. This time it's from Ducky, a brand we have yet to examine. More specifically, we're looking at the Ducky DK9087 Shine II tenkeyless keyboard.

    The Shine II was a smash hit among enthusiasts all around the world, who praise it for its quality and awesome features. Perhaps the most unique thing about the Ducky Shine II is the amount of models available:

    • Full size or tenkeyless
    • Red LED, blue LED, green LED, white LED, pink LED, or yellow LED backlight (can be disabled for boring people who prefer no light)
    • Cherry MX Red, Black, Brown, or Blue switches


    The model we have here is the DK9087 Shine II which is tenkeyless, and this particular one has a green LED backlight and Cherry MX Red switches. Unlike rubber dome keyboards including those fake "gamer" keyboards, the backlight is actually bright on mechanical keyboards. For ...

    Just in time for the new year! Cooler Master has sent us their latest mechanical keyboard, the QuickFire TK. It is a compact, backlit mechanical keyboard. It's about time these things are seeing the light of day... for the longest time, those of us who wanted backlighting + compact were stuck with either the insanely expensive, odd-layout Deck 82 key, or the not-so-favorable KBT boards. Cooler Master has answered our call with this new QuickFire TK. For more information on mechanical keyboards, please see this guide.

    It's actually hard and probably incorrect to call the QuickFire TK "tenkeyless" since it does in fact have a numberpad. But it's more or less the same size as a tenkeyless board. I suppose "compact" is a better term. It is a 92-key board, using a rare layout. Instead of having a seprate numberpad and separate arrow keys like normal keyboards, the QuickFire TK merges the numberpad with the arrow keys and others, namely Insert, Home, Page scrolling, Delete, and all of those keys located in that area. The result is a ...
