    Lets start off with the KB:

    Flexiglow LightSpeed Illuminated keyboard

    [​IMG]

    As the name suggests, the keyboard is a KB with fancy backlit keys.
    The keys are slim and are exactly like a laptop keyboard.

    The layout isn't bad and I've managed to get this far without swearing to much, but certainly something I won't get used to after hammering the keys on my G15 for a few months. The different layout certainly feels odd but I don't think you will notice it if you upgrade from a $5 "yum-cha" keyboard

    Comes with a range of programmable shortcut keys too via the supplied software

    [​IMG]

    And the backside:

    Keyboard lit up:

    Conclusions:


    Not a bad keyboard at all its slim and has backlit keys for playing in the dark
    Pros-
    -Slim and lightweight
    -backlit keys
    -Shortcut keys
    -Keys are soft and are quiet when typing
    -USB Interface

    Cons-
    -Layout might take a little time to get used to.

    Its an awesome keyboard and I'd recommend it for your LAN'ing PC. Its just small and very easy to transport. And I've made it this far with typing too, its getting better now :D


    PS: Took me half an hour trying to figure out how the backlight on and off, its in the top right hand corner on the side of the keyboard :thumbup:

    CyberSnipa Intelliscope Mouse


    [​IMG]

    This little mouse was intended for gaming and boy does she do a good job. She's a laser mouse, meaning that its high in sensitivity and accuracy. The mouse has two modes, a 1000dpi "Stealth Mode" and a 2400dpi "Atack Mode"

    Its also interesting as the colour changes when you change the DPI, red for the stealth mode and Blue for the attack mode.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The mouse has three buttons; mouse 1 and mouse 2 on the left hand side of the mouse, these are well placed and are easy to access

    [​IMG]

    The third button is placed in a bad spot, with only the pinky finger that can press it

    [​IMG]

    Its not to big either and is the same size as a G7

    [​IMG]
    Its just not as heavy

    Undersides has got teflon pads that make it glide over a mousepad.

    Conclusion

    Great mouse, but its a shame its on a leash, but then again, that might be good.

    Pros:
    -Adjustable DPI modes
    -Fancy lights
    -Buttons for backwards and forwards

    Cons
    -Lightweight


    CyberSnipa Dog tags

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The package; a USB stick, multi-tool and a chain, its a nice little bundle, I've found the tool very useful for the past day.

    The USB stick is small enough to fit on your keys. I tested it out transferring a 100mb file to the stick and it took 42 seconds. Not bad.

    Now the multitool, its got a LED torch, pliers, a file, flathead and phillips head screwdriver

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Conclusion:
    Its very handy and a nice little addition to your PC accessories. The torch is fairly bright and is powered by a little battery inside the housing itself. The tools are very handy but it was a shame there wasn't a knife on there :lol:

    Pros:
    -Small
    -Easy to chain it to a keyring
    -Fast transfer speed?

    Cons:
    None :D


    Big thanks to Anyware for providing me with these samples

    The Keyboard looks cheap and theirs no mention if it's ps2 or usb, other than that nice review, thanks:thumbup:

    PS, those Dogtags seem pretty cool for something different.

    second that request, I have found with backlit keyboards like this that the light 'outshines' the letters, and all you can see is blue when you are trying to see what the keys say.

    Nah, you can see the text on the keys perfectly, the keys are actually a semi transparent design and the light from underneath shines it up.

    As I said, I'll take a pic when I get home this arvo, that will be in about 6hrs

    Did you actually try the tools on the Cyber Sniper Dog Tags?

    The Phillips head is absolutely useless,:thumbdn: , but the light is rather handy.
