  1. Kensington Si750m review

    Kensington Si750m review

    10  

    The Si750m is a compact mouse that slips into a small pocket or pouch but performs like a pointer twice its size. It's tiny, but still practical. The back of the mouse has a compartment that opens up to reveal a battery slot

    With the PC's resolutely stealth-free lope towards the living room continuing, joypads have become more relevant than ever for PC gaming. Even your humble reviewer currently has his rig installed next to the LCD TV

    The Hercules Tunes Explorer Wireless creates its own wireless connection to your Mac using a USB receiver and acts as a remote control for iTunes. It differs from other remotes by having a small (but useful) screen...

    Apple Wireless Mighty Mouse review

    You'll remember the tale of the three blind mice. The farmer's wife cut off their tails with a carving knife. Well, it seems that the cold-hearted vixen is at it again, as here before us is yet another tail-less mouse.

    Logitech mice are becoming the epitome of the 'if it ain't broke'philosophy towards hardware design. This must be the 422nd mouse we'veseen with the same smooth, curved chassis.

    Wacom is pretty much your only choice when it comes to graphics tablets for your Mac, but luckily its products are always top notch. Here it's introduced a new entry-level tablet, the Graphire4.

    Matias 0S X Keyboard review

    Take this keyboard out of its box and you'll instantly dismiss it as a bit of a lightweight. It's true that this Canadian-designed keyboard won't win any prizes in a beauty contest or even an award for good value

    Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 review

    Microsoft's latest squeaker looks like a mis-shapen potato and, despite claims that it feels as comfortable as a handshake, we'd be inclined to say that shaking hands with Mike Tyson would be better.

    Macally iLaser USB Mouse review

    Macally is great at producing cheap, no-frills Mac peripherals that are pedestrian to look at but work well and can be relied on. This latest mouse is no exception. It's lightweight, has five programmable buttons including the scroll wheel...

    Saitek AV8R Joystick review

    It was only a few issues ago that we were lamenting the lack of good PC joysticks (PCF192) and look what should arrive but an affordable, chunky flight stick from long-time waggle-tech supremo Saitek.

    Apple Bluetooth Mighty Mouse review

    It's easy to spot Apple zealots in a crowd. They're the ones smashing the right edges of their mice in a vain attempt to get them to register a single right-click. The Mighty Mouse's buttonless design was lauded by all who saw it...

    Fang gamepad review

    5  

    The Fang, powered by the same FPS-bothering technology, is the Zboard's one-handed little brother, but we're struggling to tell if it's more than just a gimmick.

    Wacom Intuos 3 A6 Wide review

    Nobody seems to be trying too hard to displace Wacom from the top of the tablet market. We can't blame other tech producers - it's not a fight we would choose, either. After all, Wacom does such a good job

    Who buys these gaming keyboards? The new ZBoard Merc hopes to winapproval with a combination of interesing ergonomic design, rather thanpure WSAD mimicry, and there's also the coveted ZEngine software, whichallows you to design preset key-templates.

    Sony Vaio VN-CX1 review

     

    Novelty. It's a wonderful thing. Take this USB optical mouse-cum-Skypephone; what a great idea! But given the fact that novelty wears off, there's a limit to how much we're prepared to pay for such items.

    Whatever happened to the old luxury keyboard? There's the odd Microsoftor Logitech option, but these tend to be pretty pricey and often noless plasticky than cheaper offerings we could mention.

    Well, this is certainly a new one for us; a mini mouse that flips openlike a mobile phone, transforming into a fully functional VoIP handset. Swathed in stylish black and silver, the Vaio VN-CX1 looks every bit the executive desk decoration

    Logitech hasn't just added the word Mac to its reasonably pricedkeyboard and mouse set; it has also delivered a true Apple-focusedproduct. It has even put an Apple logo on the C key.

    Razer Pro v1.6 review

    We're not exactly sure where the fashion for neon blue lights on Macperipherals has come from, although we have a sneaking suspicion that it could be overspill from custom car design. The blue strip on the Razer Pro v1.6 is purely decorative

    One thing even the most ardent PC fan has to give to Apple is itsunfailing eye for a cool shape. Its computers wouldn't have been nearlyas successful if they didn't look stylish enough to sit comfortably ina museum of design

    This isn't the first programmable-macro keyboard to come through ourhardware-shaped letterbox, but it's certainly one of the mostinteresting. Out of the box, the G15 features 18 extra keys that can beprogrammed with custom functions
