MasterKeys Lite L Combo with RGB

Subjective Testing

There’s only one way we know of to test a Keyboard Mouse combo and that’s turn to the gaming rig in the lab and spend some hours with it. In this case about 30 hours total gaming across a range of games. We are running on an Intel 6700K CPU on the Asus Maximus VIII motherboard with Kingston 3000MHz memory and our EVGA GTX 1070 FTW ACX 3.0 so we don’t anticipate system or video card lag being a factor in testing.

We ran through a large portion of gaming in SKYRIM, GTA 5, Far Cry Primal and Ashes of the Singularity and found the simulated mechanical feel of the keyboard to be passable but the key travel is a bit long compared to the uber expensive mechanical models. The 50 g actuation pressure didn’t cause fatigue during hours long gaming sessions but we needed a cheat sheet for on the fly adjustments to keyboard and mouse. With continued use the learning curve might be carved away slightly but we suggest setting the Keyboard to static (your fav color) and concentrating on the gaming and not adjusting the keyboard.

The mouse was feather light in our hands and traced across our rigid mouse mat easily as well as high quality mouse pad. Just for fun we threw out a flea market $1.00 mouse pad and the mouse traveled easily across it but a cheap mouse pad we couldn’t recommend. The mouse performed admirably but the mouse pads in the cheap range tend to eat away at the Teflon feet. The button clicks on the top two buttons are feather light and required some re-calibration on muscle memory and at times were to easy to click but that falls under learning curve not manufacturing flaw.

In all given the $59 price tag the MasterKeys Lite L Combo with RGB performed admirably but with room for improvement.

The Steam Deck – Valve delivers an excellent PC handheld

Valve is an interesting company that seems to try to be a lot of things at the same time. Games company, software hub/store and hardware company. Valve is all of these. When it comes to hardware the company has had mixed success. I think many of us remember the Steam Machines. These compact computers running SteamOS, a Linux based OS, were supposed to make Windows PC’s obsolete for gaming. They didn’t succeed. Valve also released a specific controller, the Steam Controller, which also did not exactly set the world on fire. In hindsight though both these products have paved the way for the product I am testing today, the Steam Deck, Valves attempt to compete with the Nintendo Switch in the handheld market.

Crucial P5 Plus 2TB

The Crucial P5 Plus is the successor the P5 that Crucial launched last year and is the first PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD from the company. The latest model dropped the 256GB model, so the starting available capacity for the P5 Pro is 500GB. Additionally, the drive is also available in 1TB and a new storage capacity of 2TB model. The P54 Plus is priced similar to the P5 though there is a slight bump in the price where drive is retailed at $107.99(500GB), $179.99(1TB), and $367.99(2TB). The 2TB model is definitely a welcome addition and if we judge by the price per gigabyte, the 1TB model would be the most economical option. Despite the slight bump in the price, the P5 Plus are still priced competitively against its competitors. The question is, just how well would the performance backing it up? We shall find it out today.
