IOGEAR Gear Arms-On
Just lately, we right here at COGconnected have been supplied with a hand-on expertise with a set of merchandise from IOGEAR, together with the MMOMENTUM Professional, the HVER PRO X, and the KeyMander 2. In case you are unfamiliar with these product names, let’s introduce them briefly earlier than we speak about them some extra. The MMOMENTUM Professional is a mouse designed for MMORPG and MOBA video games, the HAVR PRO X is an optical-mechanical swap keyboard, and the KeyMander 2 is a mouse/keyboard/controller adapter.
Beginning off with the MMOMENTUM Pro mouse, the primary thought I had concerning the mouse was that it was noticeably heavier than different mice, however that didn’t have an effect on the efficiency. To shortly go over some key specs for the mouse, it has an adjustable dpi of as much as 16,000 with 5 completely different settings, 12 programmable buttons, that candy RGB lighting, and customizable profiles.
Going again fast to my remark concerning the weight of the mouse, it seems that the MMOMENTUM Professional mouse is roughly 50g heavier than my present mouse. Whereas it did really feel heavier, it additionally felt sturdier. The commerce off is ok, as the burden didn’t actually have an effect on efficiency with the power to regulate the dpi setting. General, the expertise with the mouse was optimistic. It was simple to arrange, keys have been programmable as marketed, and the customization components labored as supposed.
Maybe essentially the most fascinating product of the batch is the KeyMander 2. The KeyMander 2 is a controller adapter that permits for using a keyboard and mouse on the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, and Nintendo Swap. Moreover, this product will even will let you use the varied controllers of every system on different techniques. For instance, you should utilize an Xbox One controller on the PS4 with this machine. Sadly, the product does require you to obtain a selected app as a way to pair the machine along with your smartphone, customise settings, and alter configurations.
I examined each a keyboard and mouse setup in addition to a DualShock four on an Xbox One X, with none points. Inputs have been responsive for each setups, with none noticeable variations. This machine works as marketed, permitting gamers to customise their gaming expertise as they see match. Whereas most are unlikely to have a mouse and keyboard setup for his or her couches and residing rooms, this machine feels focused in direction of those that recreation on consoles at a desk or a second-monitor setup. Whereas I personally don’t have any robust preferences of controllers or utilizing keyboard/mouse on a console, the KeyMander 2 permits those that swear by a sure controller or by the keyboard and mouse to make use of what they need, the place they need.
