The Bloody B840 is a bit of a chimera, having optical switches which incorporate a metal knob in each key to produce a click when a button is fully depressed like a mechanical keyboards keys.  Their LK Sound Creator Tech makes the keys similar to Cherry Blue in terms of travel distance and actuation force, but the actual keystroke is registered with the infrared beam that comprises the optical switch.  TechPowerUp is working on proper testing for keyboard response times, the tests they tried showed that the optical technology on the Bloody keyboard is technically faster to register a keypress, but not so much that they noticed it during use.  You can see their full review here.

While the name and the bloody hand motif of the A4Tech Ultracore3 V7 Gun3 gaming mouse might be a little questionable there is one thing on this mouse which makes it stand above the competition, the so called HoleLESS engine.  Instead of an open area on the bottom of the mouse for the sensor and laser, there is a tinted covering protecting those components which means you will no longer have to pick hair or gunge out of your mouse.  Benchmark Reviews had no problems whatsoever with interference from the lack of an open hole during their testing and they had a bit of fun bumping mice together during the Q-Shoot tool in the driver.  This mouse comes with an impressive bundle, functions well and costs less than $30 ... not a bad deal at all.

"Being an enthusiast doesn't necessarily mean pouring an incredible amount of money into a hobby. While going to a web site that sells computer components, sorting by "Highest Price" and just adding everything at the top of the list to your cart will probably result in a fast computer (probably...) I'm not sure if that is what defines an "enthusiast." Sometimes finding those products that ride that price/performance line, getting the absolute most for the money spent - that's where enthusiasm can be found. A4Tech, a company with 25 years of experience with mice and other peripherals, has just released a new line of gaming mice that Benchmark Reviews is going to take a look at today. First up, the A4Tech Ultracore3 V7 Gun3 wired gaming mouse - let's see what A4Tech has in store for gaming enthusiasts..."
