Compared to the sleek, light and minimal look of peripherals for office use, gaming mouse and keyboards seem like techy contraptions from sci-fi films and casual computer users might not understand why these should replace regular peripherals. However, gamers, who are usually power users, always keep an eye out for the latest products created especially for them. Having a gaming mouse and keyboard is essential for anyone who wants to make the most out of computer games. Because if there’s anything worse than lag, that’s being undermined by your own equipment. Playing Angry Birds and casual indie games in your browser does not require any effort, nor does it put a strain on your wrist, but living and breathing games such as Call of Duty, Mass Effect, Starcraft or Counter Strike can be a challenge, especially if you play them for hours in a row. In these cases, it becomes obvious that the average peripherals do not give you enough control over the game and even slow you down.
