The Headset: Bloody M660 Chronometer GameFrame: Dishonored 2 HP OMEN X Gaming Set up

2016-12-07 From:GAMECRATE
GameFrames: Because the way you play a game is just as important as the game you're playing. Our previous GameFrame experiment was the Doom Slayer GTX 1080, a powerful beast crafted to handle one of the most intense FPS games of the year. This time around we're back with another title published by Bethesda, the stealthy supernatural sneak-fest Dishonored 2. We've rounded up some appropiate hardware and peripherals to enhance the Dishonored experience, so let's dive (or Blink, or Far Reach, or whatever) right in to the list. …
  • Bloody B720 Keyboard

    2016-11-18 From:ThermalBench.com
    I first heard of “Bloody” from some tech media coverage of Computex 2 years ago, wherein they demonstrated optical switches using an IR light source that when interrupted helped register a keystroke. It sounded amazing in that there was a big reduction in the number of moving parts thus helping increase operation lifetime, and the light could be located any height (depth) allowing for freedom of actuation distance as per choice of the company. Finally, interruption of such a light could register a keystroke almost immediately and faster than most other membrane or mechanical switches depending on the exact mechanism. Needless to say I was intrigued almost immediately, and after getting some messages from readers wanting to see coverage of more “non-mainstream” peripherals, I contacted A4Tech, a Taiwanese company formed in 1987 who also created the Bloody brand, and here we are. Thanks a lot to Bill for the review sample! …
  • Bloody B188 Light Strike Keyboard Review

    2016-06-20 From:Benchmarkreviews.com
    A4Tech is a Taiwanese company whose “Bloody” gaming division was launched in 2012. Bloody produces gaming keyboards and mice using a unique switch technology: rather than metal contact points closing an electrical circuit when a key is pressed, Bloody’s mechanical switches use infrared LEDS and photosensors, which Bloody claims provides faster key response and a more reliable and durable switch. In this article, Benchmark Reviews looks at the A4Tech Bloody B188 Light Strike Keys Gaming Keyboard, the low-cost entrant in Bloody’s keyboard lineup. Bloody keeps the cost down by using rubber-dome switches for most of the keys, saving their pricier infrared mechanical switches for the 8 special gaming keys.

  • Bloody AL90 Laser Gaming Mouse Review

    2016-06-01 From:Benchmarkreviews.com
    Why Light Strike technology? There are several advantages that a light switch has over a mechanical switch including: dust and water proof, no metals exposed to oxidize, zero noise, and no accidental double clicking. The most prominent feature is the 0.2ms actuation key response. This equates to a zero chance possibility of lag (a 30ms faster response time versus a mechanical switch).

  • CPU REVIEW: Bloody ML160 Laser Gaming Mouse

    2016-05-25 From:ComputerPowerUser
    PC gamers are particular when it comes to their peripherals, especially mice. And for good reason. The mouse is the key to movement, combat, exploration, and virtually every activity you partake in when gaming. Comfort, sensitivity, speed, and style are all important factors to consider, and if the ML160 Laser Gaming Mouse is any indication, Bloody understands each one well. I was immediately intrigued by the ML160 because of its shape, which is reminiscent of one of my favorite mice, the Corsair M65 (I currently own two of ‘em). The mouse body is on the larger side and there’s a smooth matte black plastic top panel with a textured black plastic on the sides of the unit. A backlit Bloody logo glows in seven different colors under your palm. The mouse wheel and numeric keypad are both backlit as well. While the M65 has an aluminum panel and Teflon-coated pads underneath, Bloody flips the script and uses a silver plastic for the bottom of the mouse and metal pads, called X’Glide Pro Metal, for the mouse feet. They look like anodized pink aluminum pads (we’ve heard that red anodizing is a very hit or miss process), but when using the mouse on a variety of mousing surfaces, we felt little friction. - See more at: https://www.computerpoweruser.com/article/23024/review-bloody-ml160-laser-gaming-mouse#sthash.dOoqAw7U.dpuf …
  • CPU REVIEW: Bloody B740A Light Strike Mechanical Keyboard

    2016-05-04 From:ComputerPowerUser
    At the highest levels of competition, eSports athletes look for anything that will give them an edge, however slight. Would you expect anything less from professional gamers who live, eat, and play together? The pros are constantly on the lookout for innovations that can make them faster, more accurate, and deadlier. Mechanical keyboards quickly gained popularity in competitive circles because their light actuation force, especially in Red and Brown keyswitches, facilitated the kind of quick-twitch responses that separates winners from losers. Of course, once enough people caught on, mechanical keyboards ceased to be a secret weapon. Peripheral manufacturer Bloody wants to keep you ahead of the curve, and the company has a trick up its sleeve that might do just that. - See more at: https://www.computerpoweruser.com/article/20891/review-bloody-b740a-light-strike-mechanical-keyboard#sthash.QDlGnKcR.dpuf …
  • CPU REVIEW: Bloody TL80 Terminator Laser Gaming Mouse

    2016-05-03 From:ComputerPowerUser
    Point, click, kill—the concept is painfully simple, and yet here we are in 2016, still searching for the perfect gaming mouse. Now, given the diversity of games today, this mythical peripheral will never truly exist, but that doesn’t stop manufacturers from trying. Enter Bloody, which puts its best foot forward with the TL80 Terminator Laser Gaming Mouse. We can see why the TL80 Terminator would have mass appeal. With the exception of a pair of thumb buttons, the mouse has an ambidextrous body, and the silver and black color scheme pairs with nearly any build. It’s plenty comfortable to use, too. The real game changer, according to Bloody, is the TL80’s use of the company’s proprietary LK (Light Strike) technology. Instead of using typical metal switches beneath the mouse’s main left and right buttons, Bloody incorporates switches with infrared light sensors that register a click when a small beam of infrared light is interrupted. It’s the same concept behind Bloody’s LK mechanical keyboards, and it yields the same benefit. The infrared switches eliminate the metal bouncing effect, which introduces a small amount of peripheral-side latency (up to 30ms, Bloody indicates). As a result, the TL80’s infrared light technology cuts the switches’ response time to 0.2ms. Incidentally, Bloody uses the same technology in the mouse’s scroll wheel. - See more at: https://www.computerpoweruser.com/article/20881/review-bloody-tl80-terminator-laser-gaming-mouse#sthash.AKn7JniI.dpuf …
