2017's desire for peripherals: keyboard, mouse, ...

Post by Anderson » Sun Oct 08, 2017 10:11 am

hi boat,

since I got my new rig and need all around my old rig to be put elsewhere, isearch for new keyboard and mouse such as a proper wifi/wlan adapter.

the last years I used a Logitech g15 and was really happy with:

however I suggest there are better alternatives today.

as mouse after Logitech and Razer Lachesis I played the last months with Roccat Kone Pure SE,

https://www.roccat.org/de-AT/Products/G ... e-Pure-SE/

when I replaced my RAzer I was a bit surprised by the low haptics of the Roccat device but after some time I get used to it, however I think the are valuable alternatives.

since my msi mb carbon pro gaming z270 has none I need a proper wifi/wlan adapter, please tell me your best choice.

something else to add to my gaming pc which is mainly used for fps esp. insurgency, and pubg , please tell.

Many thanks pre-up.

Personally, I like the Razer range for my keyboard, mouse and headset. My boss, however, prefers Logitech. Unfortunately there is no way to try before you buy!

Finding a decent WLAN adapter can be difficult as depending on your location they are more susceptible to interference so would recommend wired networks over wireless. Have you thought about a power line adapter?

hi 0v3rz34l0u5,

thanks again for your input on my request as several weeks ago for my components post.

Razer is well chosen and would also be my favourite to buy which devices in detail you use???

I have had wlan in use where I now plan to install my pc, it worked fine however I will test the difference with lan. at the time problem is that the lan cabel is running free through the rooms down in the ground floor. a bit problematic, if someone else than me is using our apartment.

is this power line adapter working well problems seems to by in 2 floor apartments or houses where seperat power lines systems are used.

thank you for your consistent input.

@ ztrainer,

thank you for your tip. I used Logitech for several years and was always happy with it, however I think you pay some money for the name therefore I am searching for alternatives.

ty again.

I use a BlackWidow Ultimate keyboard, Taipan mouse and BlackShark headset (virtual surround). They all branded for BF4.

Do you rent or own your apartment? Powerline should work in a block of flats, take a look at https://www.linksys.com/at/p/P-PLSK400/

You are always paying a premium for a name, however sometimes that premium is warranted.

Keyboards are personal: anything with mechanical switches. Razer make their own types of switches, and I have the Razer BlackWidow X Tournament Edition (it's tenkeyless, very portable). It has the Razer Green switches, which are so clickety-clackety they drove my fiance insane. I therefore switched to a Corsair keyboard with Cherry MX Speed switches, but this made typing impossible because the keys almost actuate if you look at them the wrong way.

Begrudgingly, I sent it back and bought another keyboard, the Corsair K70 RGB with Cherry Brown switches. They are still 'clicky' but not 'clickety clackety' like the Cherry Blue switches (or Razer green). It's built like a tank and has wonderful RGB lighting, without being tacky. There are many other switches and which you like will be personal, however I find that for typing / programming purposes, a switch with a palpable point of actuation like Cherry Blue / Brown is better than 'linear' switches like the Cherry Speed / Red. But everyone is different and some people hate switches that have a palpable point of actuation. Try some at your computer shop and see what you like. I wish I had done this ^_^ Buying a Corsair without RGB lighting is a lot cheaper. The K66 or the Strafe are also good keyboards and cost a lot less than the K70.

Mouse: bought a Corsair M65, hated it. Despite making amazing keyboards, Corsair mice feel unfinished. I then upgraded to the Logitch G502 Proteus Spectrum. I loved the placement of buttons and the tracking, but it's a heavy mouse not suited to FPS games, so I then switched again and bought the Razer DeathAdder Chroma (USB, not wireless). Paired with the large Razer Goliath Control mousemat, I simply cannot fault it. It is very light and the tracking is superb, and my in-game performance went through the roof, partly because it was a better mouse, but partly because of the huge mouse mat meaning I could reduce the sensitivity to 800 dpi and sensitivity setting to 7% in Battlefield 1. Boom headshot!

Razer Orange or Yellow keys are silent though. What suits one gamer, won’t necessarily suit another. I’d prefer silent keys but I haven’t the need for them at the moment as the missus is in a different room! 😂
