  1. Genius Traveler 355 Laser review

    Genius Traveler 355 Laser review

    8  

    While Sony's excellent SMU-M10 is a travel mouse that tucks away into the slimmest of spaces, this travel mouse is a bit more cumbersome. It's the same size as a desktop mouse, so you'll need a thick laptop bag

    Targus Stow-N-Go Media Remote review

    8  

    Whether you have Windows Media Center or a range of media you'd like to access without having to touch your laptop, this gadget is perfect. Comprising a tiny USB link connector and a 2.4GHz RF remote, you can access your media from up to 15m away

    Wacom Bamboo review

    Bamboo is Wacom's latest weapon in convincing us to seriously consider its products as mouse replacements. For the first time, it's aimed entirely at an audience that spends its time browsing the Internet, emailing and creating spreadsheets

    Wacom Bamboo review

    Wacom has often bundled a mouse with its priciest graphics tablets, in a tacit acknowledgement that for some users there are tasks that are better accomplished with a mouse than a stylus

    Ergo 525 review

    The problem I've found with laser mice is that being a person of limited reaction times, the mouse pointer, or targeting reticule in games, moves around faster than my feeble mind can cope with.

    MaxFire Pandora Pro review

    Sometimes, you've just got to use a joypad, nothing else will do. The keyboard and mouse combo is all very well for your first person shooters, but what about sports sims, retro arcade shooters, and racing games?

    Logitech Harmony 1000 review

    9  

    Universal remotes are a great way to take control of your entire AV system - especially when that system becomes rather extensive. Logitech's latest model in its Harmony line has the power to command up to 15 separate items

    Ci65m Wireless Notebook Mouse review

    Ci65m Wireless Notebook Mouse review

    9  

    We weren't expecting much from this notebook squeaker. After all, most notebook mice have terrible sensitivity, poor detection on anything but a textured surface, and entirely fail to fit the human hand.

    Thrustmaster Run 'N' Drive review

    With more and more console ports fouling up our beloved PC shores, it's understandable that you might want to invest in a gamepad to at least milk some joy from the latest bunch of soulless ports.

    Thrustmaster RGT Clutch Edition review

    8  

    Thrustmaster's previous RGT model was met with a reasonably warm reception within the pages of this august tome, but we had a couple of criticisms. For one, the gear changes were a bit hit and miss, thanks to the slightly limp shifter menchanism

    Wacom Graphire 4 review

    9  

    For most people a graphics tablet seems like an unnecessary luxury. The good ones are generally pricy and the cheap ones pretty useless. Unless you need to do a lot of design or image-editing work, you probably don't see the need

    You might be considering one of these scroll knobs if you've been dabbling with animation and 3D design on a Mac. Sadly, if you're into any other type of design then it's not for you

    ZBoard Merc review

    7  

    The most exciting thing about the Zboard is not the bizarre lumpy growth to the left of the board, but the ZEngine software which allows you to remap said lumps to all sorts of exciting functions

    Tunes Explorer Wireless review

    8  

    There are so many iPod-styled peripherals out there that you'd be forgiven for overlooking this chunky little fella. Operating as a remote for your audio app, it allows you to play any music without having to sit at your PC

    RotoKiller RTR-720 Mk II review

    There are times when innovation is necessary, and times when it isn't. For example, it would be innovative to design a plane with no wings, but a three month crawl to Tokyo doesn't boast the glamour of actually flying

    Traditionally, there are two types of universal remote control: those that come with an in-built library of remote commands and those, mainly at the top end of the market in price and design, which can be customised through connection to a computer

    Wacom Intuos3 A4 review

    9  

    The Intuos takes the next step up from the Graphire range, and adds sometimes subtle improvements to an already excellent format. The included mouse is wireless but not battery powered, taking full advantage of the technology behind the tablet

    Cyber Snipa SWAT review

    8  

    Yes, it's a daft name, and clearly aimed at the 1337 gamrz, but the Cyber Sniper SWAT is actually a superb mouse, provided you're of the right-handed persuasion. Crisp and smooth cursor response is always a winner, and the SWAT has it in spades

    Razer Tarantula review

    This glossy black luxury deck is the sharp-suited Italian gent of the test. From the mirror-finish black chassis to the softly pulsing blue Razer logo, it's a reet sexy keyboard and, like the Enermax Aurora, and acts as a two-port USB hub

    PC Line PCL-SK1 review

    This is as boggo a board as we could find, and boy does it feel cheap. There are no frills to be found here, save for three rubbery buttons for launching apps, and the keys themselves feel horribly plasticky

    This is the very Cylon Interceptor of keyboards. With the main body constructed of gert lush brushed alu (the keys are plastic) this board could decapitate a man at 20 paces, and he wouldn't even notice

    Microsoft Wireless Comfort Keyboard review

    If you've been part of the WSAD brigade for a long time, then switching to one of Microsoft's comfort range may come as a bit of a surprise. The first few games of Quake we played involved us fumbling with the oddly shaped keys

    Logitech G15 review

    The G15 had stacks of promise. 18 programmable macro keys, bindable in three modes to give a whopping total of... (takes socks off for hard maths) 54 functions! Probably

    Logitech G11 review

    The G11 is basically the same as the company's G15, but without the LCD panel. It's also roughly £30 cheaper if you shop around. It features the same suite of 56 bindable macro keys, Soho-grade electric blue Lighting, and a 'gaming mode'

    Hiper Hipercomm review

    We wanted to give the Hipercomm top marks, as it's tiny, yet packed with features. However it won't be for everyone, as the cursor keys are kind of squidged up tight, and so take some getting used to
