Your keyboard, mouse, headset and monitor?
Czech Republic ModusOperandi 
HLTV mens, What is your brand of choice when it comes to gaming peripherals? Could you list your setups and tell me if you're satisfied with it or whether you'd change something? I am building a pc and with that I am also picking up a keyboard, mouse, headset and a monitor. Until now I've been using some basic LCD 60hz dell 24" monitor, default logitech office keyboard and a razer deathadder v2 with steelseries qck (small one), headset hyperx cloud alpha. I'd love to try the zowie ec2b since I've heard the ergonomy is superb, but the overall built quality is meh and there's no paracord + no info about any update whatsoever. Thanks!

zowie ec2a, best mouse i ever had, dropped it countless times on the ground and still works perfectly for the keyboard i use an old logitech from office, gotta change it tbh headset hyper x cloud revolver, surprisingly good sound/bass/definition, the mic is fine too but if i would buy an headset now i would go for audiotechinca/seinheisser and buy a separate mic

my advice is take the best audio/price ratio and look for headset without mic and no gaming stuff

Both pc37x and 38x exist dude, they're a different headset. drop.com/audiophile/drops The pc37x has a driver from the HD598/600, the pc38x has the driver from the GSP500/600 series.

Unless you're trying to play on LAN (or play in an area where headset bleed would be an issue), the best headphones for gaming are all open back. Beyerdynamic DT880/990 or AKG K700 series are great for gaming. They have really crisp high end which is useful for positioning.

+1 IMO all the popular headset brands are crap tbh. Cheap materials that are just marketed into oblivion. Currently using Sennheiser HD569 with a ModMic. I prefer a bassy sound so I closed back is better for me.

I read some reviews and doesn't seem like it. I don't think you can get "great" headphones/headsets for such a cheap price. You need to spend at least 150-200 to get a decent sound quality, which IMO is the most important thing in headphones. If you don't care about the sound, then Cloud II might be fine for you, but objectively speaking they're not "great".

200e is not audiophile quality. You need to go higher if you're serious about sound. And like I commented they might be good for him, but objectively can't be described as "great" like he did. Nothing wrong with being content with lower quality, just don't label your low standard as "great".

They are more than fine for gaming, you can hear everything like footsteps in games like CSGO, the microphone is great, i wouldnt consider it as lower quality lol, why spend more when you can have something efficient for a lower price

rtings.com/headphones/reviews/hyperx/clo.. According to this review the frequency response is not that good. In an ideal world the line should be straight. You can check the graphs that it's not the case with these headphones. Some c+v notes from the review: "These headphones have a sub-par frequency response consistency" "The HyperX Cloud 2 have a disappointing treble response" "The soundstage on this headset is bad"

imo mouse with a proper mousepad is more important or maybe on par with a 240hz monitor. A friend of mine is 2,6k elo with a 70hz.. I've recently upgraded from a 60hz to 240hz but my aim is still average, the only thing I've improved so far is the reaction time slightly... But it's subjective mainly

pretty much all gaming mice (at least from respected brands) have capable sensors these days, so changing between them won't be as big a difference as changing between 60hz and 144hz obviously some mice will be better for you than others but it's all preference as no mouse is objectively better than another but as long as you have a 120hz+ monitor i agree that mouse is the most important

Just yesterday I saw a review about the glorious D from rocket jump ninja. He said it's a copy of zowie's ec2 ergonomics (which was apparently inspired by microsoft's intellimouse) but that the glorious D has everything the zowie doesn't - paracord, smooth middle wheel button, well made side buttons and other stuff, really been thinking about it, but I am not a fan of those holes :D ty for the list, will check the keyboard
2021-01-19 19:06
5 replies
Yeah basically. I'd agree with his review tbh...the shape is VERY similar, if not identical. Before the Glorious D I did use the EC2-A. The holes have never really been an issue for me...I don't really notice them and the sides of the mouse where I rest the tips of my fingers don't have the holes which for me is the most important thing. I'd say the Model D minus is more close to the EC2...the keyboard is a really sturdy build...defo worth checking out. <3
2021-01-19 20:10
why dont you like the holes? you dont even feel them
2021-01-20 08:47
3 replies
I mean, I could like them, but since I haven't tried any mice with holes I can't tell and so far I've played with mice that had none. It just looks weird to me, I see no point of doing holes in a mouse - I don't really care if it weighs 5-10grams less, because that's the idea behind the holes I assume, reducing the weight and maybe appeal to a certain group of people which likes them :D dunno really, I'd rather buy a mouse with no holes, but If I had the opportunity to try one without buying it I'd be able to decide without any bias.
2021-01-20 12:38

For mouse with holes the thing you need to watch out for is the one which had the hole on the sides and the build quality,your nails might hurt(especially your pinky's) ive had the same problems with my Cooler Master MM710 except build quality.

Yeah they did have a lot of problems with their earlier stuff...I have one of the first batches of Model O mice and my cable eventually went after a few months. I ended up getting a custom cable and it was easy enough to replace (not ideal I know) ...but the newer batches all have improved cables now and I haven't had any issues with the Model D version so I don't think it's anything to worry about any more.

ty for the list man, was looking at the hyper x alloy keyboard the other day online - looks fine and is well priced imo... what do you think about those switches?

Well I got mine for like 80 CAD (about 60 USD) and it was so worth it. Hyperx's own aqua switch I feel it is even better than cherry MX brown (a bit more tactile with similar sound) so I definitely recommend it if you really like cherry brown. the RGB lighting is extremely bright and nice looking. The only downside about hyperx keyboard is that if you want to play with it you need to configure throught hyperx's own software and its still in beta version so many bugs. But if you are fine with the keyboard's presets then there is no problem. Overall, a great keyboard for both gaming and typing.

So far I have no real life experience with any mechanical keyboards, can't really say if I'd prefer the aqua over the MX ones.. Will have to hope I've made the right choice.. I am almost convinced that I'll get a hyper X keyboard.. Don't really care about RGB but it might be a nice feature to have in the end :D But the keyboard is plug n play, isn't it? I mean I would bind it in console in csgo, but other than that I don't think I'd want to program any keys.. thanks for your input yo!

yea if you just need a cheap, well built, simple mechanical keyboard then hyperx is a great choice. You will only need to use software if you want heavy customization on your lighting, other than that just plug & play really easy. No problem. cheers man !

Do you often watch movies on that monitor as well? I checked that benq's been using the TN panel for their monitors in a lot of cases and it's one of the oldest technology. Most brands nowadays advertise their monitors with an "IPS" panel that's supposed to be the latest tech out and should be accurate when it comes to colours and such... Are you satisfied with that monitor? thanks for the list

yes i often watch shows on my monitor, but with the base settings of the monitor the color and everything is horrible so you need to do lots of adjustments before it looks goo. and i have two different defaults from when im playing games and watching movies although my second monitor which is less optimized for gaming does have a nicer display for watching movies it still looks good on my main one

thanks for the comment and explanation, appreciate it! Will check the stuff you listed, gl with the monitor pick.. btws. I've seen video reviews that show there's barely any difference between 144hz vs 244hz usually it's just a price boost imo... you might want to stick to the 144hz and buy a QHD (or higher res.) with an IPS panel... just my thoughts from tho:D gl!

No problem, and thanks for your reply as well! After what you said about 144hz vs 240hz I did some more research as well, and gotta say you're probably right. Most people say there's barely any difference upgrading from 144hz to 240hz. The fact is that the prices for 240hz monitors (especially Zowie ones) are pretty big, over 400 euros here as of now for Zowie, while 144hz monitors are max 200 euros. So I might as well save my money, or just buy a 144hz monitor with a better panel :D Thanks for the reply again, helped a lot!

I wanna eventually upgrade to a cloud2 over the Stinger and get an independent microphone but right now the Stinger works just fine for me in terms of sound quality, the microphone is really the only let down. I dont mind louder keyboards either in all honesty because I usually have music in the background or I'm so zoned into the game audio I dont pay attention to the keyboard

I switched to the cloud 2 few months ago from the stinger and I like it much better, especially the sounds I get in game, much clearer and feel more natural. Regarding the keyboard, of course when you gaming you wouldn't notice as much, but your discord teammates or people around you will definitely be bothered.

O.O the headphones alone is probably my entire budget xd jk but they have to be untouchable! Do you play on black bards? Or do you play cs at all? Most people go for a 24" or 27" since most people's peripheral vision is "limited" if not trained but 48" is basically a tv :D

I am pretty happy with the headphones. I am a bit of an audiophile but I see myself as a newcomer in that community so I am not that experienced. They are pretty cheap for being planar magnetics and they need dac and amplifer so the cost increases exponentially if you want a better setup. It IS a tv! But it is better than most gaming monitors out there. 120hz oled with below 10ms input lag? Cant get better picture quality than that. Very accurate colour and infinite contrast. I dont really play cs anymore. I have played that shit for over 15 years so I guess I got tired of it. Now I just sit back and play games with a controller like the lazy potato I am . However, when they release oled monitors like they showed earlier this year I will get one and start playing more competetive games. Dont really want higher than 27 for that

Oh, I see :D Can't even imagine what it's like to listen to a music with the fully loaded equip, gotta be an earphony :D Might check the oled 24/27" monitors then... but am a bit worried they'll be too pricey for me... thanks for the explanation, appreciate it. hf!

I heard Anandas (Sundara on steroids as far as I understand) and I was really impressed. These cans sound really wide and clean, however, I prefer a bit smoother sound like Audeze's signature.

Keyboard: Logitech G Pro Wireless Keyboard (GX Blue) - Keyboard doesn't affect your gaming experience much, as long as it's mechanical. Choosing a keyboard is pretty much all personal preference. Mouse - Logitech G Pro Wireless - Logitech G Pro Wireless is the best wireless mouse on the market right now, at least until its successor was released. The mouse is light, ambidextrous, and most of all, wireless. Battery life is good and the mouse lasts around 50 hours with the RGB led logo on. The build quality is excellent, as always with Logitech products. Only con I could think of is the fact that the mouse is small and ambidextrous, which might be a deal breaker for some. Monitor: BenQ XL2456 240Hz Full HD - BenQ XL2546 is basically de facto monitor for professional CS players. It's widely used in premier tournaments and for good reason: It's a no-nonsense 240Hz monitor with DyAC and good customization options. Headphones : Sony MDR1000X - I like good active noise cancelling so that's that.

ty for the list and your input! Agree on that headset recommendation but I am afraid that would add up another expanses if I'd like to keep a certain quality - I'll probably stick to a headset with a mic on, I am satisfied with the cloud alphas... maybe some sennheisers in the future tho. Ty man *I think I'll get a keyboard with a numeric pad, but will think about it, it's not really a priority, and these smaller ones save space on the table...
2021-01-19 19:34
1 reply
Yeah id get the sennheisers as well. You could go for the full sized keyboard as its more functional, id recommend avoiding the bigger "gaming" brands as they are usually overpriced and not really well built. I got a smaller keyboard because I never use the number pad and barely use the F1-12 keys. Saving space was also a factor since my desk isn't big and I had to make enough space for my monitor and tower to fit.

keyboard: XTRFY K4 TKL RGB RETRO mouse: Logitech G Pro Wireless headset: SteelSeries Arctis 7 monitor: Lenovo Y27q-20 G Pro Wireless is the best mouse I've ever used and I won't be switching it anytime soon. I just got this XTRFY keyboard to replace my old razer blackwidow and it feels amazing and has great RGB effects. the SteelSeries Arctis 7 headset seems to be one of the best wireless headsets on the market and I can attest to that. It has great battery life and as far as I can tell amazing sound quality. My friend recommended I get the Lenovo Y27-q-20 when I upgraded to 1440p. Incredible monitor and great 165hz refresh rate, if you're interested in checking it out there are 2 versions, one comes with built in speakers and the model I got does not.

I have the V2 now, so far really good, had it for a year now. was thinking about those Corsair HS60 Pro ...

Thanks for the list!

Unfortunately I've never used cloud alpha before... But I can say that the HS60 pro is great in my opinion... I have a larger head and it fits fine for me, just had to adjust to the largest setting of the headset. (Idk what's it's called lol, the thing that you can adjust how tight or loose the headset is) HS60 pro is very comfortable for me, build quality is great but sound quality I'm not sure how it would compare to the cloud alpha. So far so good with the HS60 pro. Good luck with your findings :)

Keyboard: Ducky One 2 TKL (Good build quality for a £170 keyboard, the stock switches feel great, stabs are mediocre. However there's this issue of the paint chipping off the back of the board which is really annoying. In that regard and there's a slight ping noise due to the mostly plastic build and absence of sound dampening material, I would highly recommend checking out Leopold MX keyboards if you don't mind not having RGB) Mouse: Zowie FK2 w/o mods (Not much to complain here other than the cable itself. Even though I'm using a mouse bungee, the cable is still quite stiiff and if possible, I'd recommend implementing a paracord mod on it or look for other alternatives, if you don't like having to deal with stiff cables. At this point there are so many good mice out there in the market, especially with a similar shape to the FK2, like the HyperX Pulsefire Haste, Niceus Revel, Endgame XM1, Ducky Feather, RVU, Model O, etc. that you can't go wrong) Headset: Sennheiser GSP 500 (The shape and comfort are my biggest complaints about this headset. With regards to audio quality, it's just fine) Display: MSI Optix MAG274QRF-QD (My only complaints about this monitor are (1) stock oversaturation due to wide color gamut (since there's no way you can recalibrate these stock settings) and (2) the panel itself. The new AU Optronics are freaking horrible and suffer heavily from bad BLB and stuck pixels. Trying to balance the standard contrast ratio of a conventional IPS display and the wide color gamut of LG's nano IPS panels, it seems like they seriously messed up. If only I could swap the AU Optronics panel with an LG nano IPS panel, this would be my perfect monitor at the £600 price point. In this regard, I'd recommend checking out the LG 27GL850 or the 27GL83A-B (if you're on a tighter budget), both of which feature LG's nano IPS panels and are cheaper than the MSI panel)

Headset- Phillips SHP9500 + V-MODA BoomPro Microphone Can't complain. My voice sounds pretty good and sounds are clean. These headphones are open-back so I constantly hear my fan right beside me, not a big issue tho. Mouse - Logitech G403 Mouse tracks pretty well and size is ok. Not the most comfortable shape so I think that's a weak point, but my biggest complaint is how thick the cable is. It's pretty noticeable how it drags against the mousepad everytime I move the mouse. Keyboard - GSKILL KM360 Pretty basic mechanical keyboard with only the basic stuff and no numpad. The red switches feel pretty nice, but I'd say the lack of media keys is its biggest problem, but with software like autohotkey it's a non-issue. Apart from that pretty nice deal Monitor - Gigabyte M27Q 170 hz is really smooth and it's ips so colors look really good. No complaints apart from some grey uniformity issues in discord, but it's completely unnoticeable in every other app.

Mouse: Zowie S1 It's a great mouse, just what you would expect from Zowie. Still it's a bit too large for my liking, but sadly I didn't have a chance to try it before buying it, because well, corona :P Still I would highly recommend it and all the other Zowie mice, just make sure you find a shape that fits your grip style and hand size. Keyboard: Logitech G Pro Got this keyboard when I managed to break my old Corsair Strafe keyboard. It's quite cheap which is nice and the build quality is surprisingly good for the price. The clicky switches were a new experience for me and they are alright, although a bit loud (the click sound is satisfying though). I would still recommend this keyboard, but I would probably go with a keyboard that has linear switches instead, unless you want clicky switches. Headphones: Beyerdynamic DT-770 M (80 ohms) Good studio headphones with pretty good noise cancellation and sound quality. They don't have a microphone, so that's something you should keep in mind if you consider these. Overall great headphones, would highly recommend these over any "gaming" headphones. Monitor: Asus VG248 (144 Hz) A pretty cheap 144 hz monitor, but gets the job done. Probably should've gone with the BenQ one instead, but this is alright. Might upgrade to a 240 hz one when I get the chance (BenQ Zowie XL2546). Mousepad: Zowie G-SR Good control pad. This mousepad gets dirty quite fast, but it's still my favorite mousepad that I've ever used. If you want a control pad then this is probably the right choice for you.

Tbh I don't really mind the scroll wheel. I prefer more smooth feeling ones, but this one is good enough. Only thing that I hate about Zowie scroll wheels is the fact that they loosen up quite quickly and then they feel so mushy to use.

I mean the scroll wheel is ok to use in game but for work/productivity its just terrible to have to scroll through excel spreadsheets or website with so much noise and hassle.

Keyboard: Corsair K70 RGB MK.2 Great keyboard, this thing is literally made of metal and it is built super well. Lighting is awesome. Kinda expensive sometimes, but 100% worth the money if you can find it on sale. I found it for $100 USD. Mouse: Glorious D Super light, great sensor, cool lighting. My first mouse with holes in it, but it doesn't bother me at all. There are some quality issues with the mouse and I am going to RMA it, but they have good support and they will send you a new one if you have any problems. Also, the cord is super light, flexible, and feels like a piece of yarn. Mousepad: HyperX Fury S (size Large) It's just a mousepad, nothing good or bad really. Headset: Sennheiser HD 559 Great headphones for $100 but if you are only gaming then get the HyperX cloud 2 for the mic. Microphone: Blue snowball Monitor: Asus VG259QM 24.5" 280Hz This monitor is the closest thing you can get to having a zowie monitor without paying for a zowie monitor. It has ELMB sync which is basically the same thing as DyAc, although DyAc is a bit better. This monitor also is IPS which is nice. The refresh rate can also be turned up to 280hz in the monitor settings which is nice. I got it for $320 USD, but there are some stock issues with this monitor and you may have trouble finding it. The stand is also super adjustable. This monitor offers most of what a zowie monitor does, and for $200 less. Great deal - if you can find one.

Ty for all the info, appreciate it a lot! I was about to pick Asus VG259Q - it's a 144hz version, the rest I assume is the same but someone here suggested the LG Ultra Gear 27GL83A-B, but it's more expensive... I am currently deciding between those 2
2021-01-19 23:59
2 replies
The ASUS one looks like the 144hz version of my monitor. It has ELMB sync and everything else looks the same, so I would totally recommend it. The LG one looks like a nice monitor also, I have heard good things about their Ultra Gear monitors. I have a QHD monitor also, and I can say that QHD looks a whole lot better than 1080p in games other than csgo. If you want your games to look nice, the QHD monitor will make a big difference and I would pick that one unless you mostly just care about csgo.

I've never used the G Pro so i cant really comment on that but so far (1 month) im mostly happy with it. I say mostly happy because the software is kinda buggy and the latest firmware update broke the battery percentage counter so i had to revert back to the previous firmware update but other then that its a very good mouse. From what i heard some mouses in the 1st batch had some problems but mine was perfectly fine. Would recommend imo. EDIT: Battery life with RGB off 1000hz polling is around 2-3 days, not as much as the G Pro Wireless but i dont mind plugging in my mouse every 2-3 days or when im not using it.

Did you have any mechanical keyboards before? How did you choose / decide which one to buy? Do you like the red switches ? Ty!
2021-01-20 15:22
3 replies
I had cougar hybrid mechanical before, but it was too big for me, I like keyboards to be as small as possible (but without losing any crucial functions), so I went for the shorter one without numpad, since I dont use it that much anyway. Because my family live in Ostrava, but my college is in Olomouc, where I live with my friends, I travel a lot. I have a PC on both places, but only 1 keyboard and this one really fits in a regular backpack without a problem. Also you have more space on your table. Also the price was really nice (there was like -30% in Alza, but would buy it anyway) And for the switches, I wanted a keyboard without the click, so I went for the red ones, tried the red ones in the store and my friend had some old mechanical keyboard with black switches, which also do not have the click in them. I went for the red ones in the end, because you can not choose blacks on this keyboard and I like the red ones more anyway. Overall I would recommend it, its small but robust in its way since the body is half plastic half metal. The switches are great for me and overall never had any issue with it. I hope this was helpful :D

While I havent owned a gaming headset for more than a couple months at a time, I have tried many, MANY headsets. Inlcuding most hyper X, razer, logitech and corsair ones and in my opinion getting a good pair of regular open or closed back headphones with a decent audio interface trumps all headsets in terms of sound quality and visualization. HOWEVER that being said, the logitech gpro x and blackshark v2 as well as the hyper x 2 are the best of the best headsets. But still fall short of a good pair of open backs and an amp/dac :p

Monitor - BenQ XL2411P, recommended, although black levels are not that great but aren't very bad either, so good for csgo. Headset - Steelseries Arctis something (don't remember exact model) Best headset I've had so far. Also bought the Logitech G Pro headset, used for like 4 hours and didn't like it very much. Might have to fiddle with the setting a bit, so if anyone got good setting please let me know.

I would recommend you gateron blues if you want something more easily obtainable, but Kailh BOX White/Navy/Jade/Pinks are, based on what ive heard, great too. Although, you would need a hotswappable keyboard for that. If you want something you could essentially get anywhere, cherry mx blues are alright, but if you have the budget for a hotswap keyboard like the Glorious GMMK, any of the kailh box switches listed above should be great. I've never tried any of these myself, but people seem to really like them. I recommend listening to sound tests on youtube, if you care about that sort of thing :) Sorry if this is confusing, I'm an idiot when it comes to explaining these things

do you have the Cherry MX Speed switches? How are they? Did you order it online or had previous experience with some switches? In this corona time, it's nearly impossible for me to go to the shop and try a keyboard switches there :d

G pro x superlight ( good upgrade from the G305, though if you are on the budget the G305 is really nice if you use a AAA battery as apposed to the AA it requires as it makes it feel like the balance i smuch better ) , I have a razer huntsman tourament edition kb and it is nice, responsive and clean. I think clicky switches could be preferable and is not as good as the apex pro but is much cheaper so. Have a steelseries mousepad and the steelseries arctis pro headset and they are both very nice.

as i said, you must be really dumb. thanks for proving my point. shape is all that matters and zowie has the best shapes. light mice are not any good for a game like csgo, maybe if you are a dumb fortnite player that flicks like an idiot every milisecond. zowie also has the best buttons and wheel and the only thing they can improve is to make their mice wireless which they will probably do this year if that's what dumb people are after. paracords and bungees exist since 2000 anyway so i doubt that anyone that got a 3 digit iq cares about wireless enough to downgrade from a zowie

Have you always had blue switches? I can't really get my hands on any switches due to corona lockdowns, but I am trying to decide between linears and tactiles - specificaly MX blues and Kailh Red. I really like the "XTRFY K4 TKL RGB, Kailh Red" but it has only the kailh red ones, they sound nice through the youtube reviews but it's pretty misleading and is not the selling point for me. I am afraid that without testing the switches it myself, I won't be able to find out if I like the clicky tactile ones or just a linear ones :D Do you have any suggestions? Thanks for the list though *btw the mouse looks pretty nice, I wanted to buy the ec2 - would you say this would be a better pick? Just from a review I checked now the overall built seems a bit better, especially the side buttons + paracord.

Before my main mouse was the g pro wireless and the ec, i switched between them, but this is by far the best shape i have tried. Like i said its a mix, but if you like the raised hump on the ec you wont find it here, its rather flat which i like. In my opinion its and improved ec. As for the blue switches i would say its the best. I had a corshair with red switches which i had to get rid of because i couldnt play without the tactile feedback. Could be cuz i started with blues, but i have tried blues, blacks, browns, reds, razer greens, yellows, orange. And the silent tactile always feel like a cheep version of the tactile, so i have to use the tactile, feel like its the best switch. But you have to try them out. Maybe go to a store or something where you can test out the switches. But i would recommend the blues. And the keyboard looks good, so i would get that aswell if you are looking to buy it. Actualy was gonna buy an xtrfy keyboard, cuz at the time i was using the m4, but i didnt wanna wait for shipping.

Thanks for the the detailed reply! I am still hesitant in the mouse choice:D I really wanted to try the ec2 but now when I know about the vaxee it's even harder. Do you know about the Glorious GMMK TKL? It's a modular keyboard, like yours. I am thinking about getting it, since I realised that the xtrfy k4 was limited to just the red switches. I didn't know about modular keyboards when I started to look for a mechanical keyboard and it's a no brainer. You can completely change your switches. It's hilarious that more brands don't do offer modular ones - like corsair or razer for example.. it's so limiting to just buy a keyboard with fixed switches unless you want to re-solder the whole keyboard :D

I agree, moudlar keyboards are probably the best type of keyboard to buy, you can choose what you want without having to buy a new keyboard. It is without a doubt the best keyboard to buy when you are starting out. As i said for the mouse, i belive that if you are interested in gaming and want to improve you are probably gonna try out more mice. So if you wanted to buy the ec and you are very unsure what you want, i would just buy that shape. But i saw the Glorius keyboard and it looks nice, if i where you i would pair it with the Model D or D-, because its a copy of the ec shape but lighter, and the lighter the mouse, the better your aim statsticaly. If you look at pros, most are using 75g and lower. So many people have switched to the GPW X because its light. The ec is outdated when it comes to mouse feet, cable and wheight. Thats where the Model D- comes in with improved on all places.

During black friday the Beyerdynamic Custom Games were 150 euros as far as I remember (it has a microphone). All dt's were around the price 110-130, but youd have to pay for a microphone. *Edit: The Custom Game is actually on sale for the price right now as well.

I own the Zygen NP-01 as well and I have to say its an amazing mouse. I stopped using it because it was too small for me sadly. If they ever release a bigger version, it might just be the perfect mouse for me. The NP-01 is simply a better version of the Zowie EC2 in every way.

ty for the advice! Heard that pbt is the higher standard but I thought only ducky and razer currently use them the most and I really want a TKL keyboard that's not overpriced because of brand..

Vaxee scroll wheels are not liked by many, but for me, i have used around 10 mice min and this one has very defined steps, which i like, it's fine for bhopping too, but shape is it's main strong point, best on the market if it fits you of course. the hdxx is a hd 650 which is a 500dollar headset but for 200, it needs an amp but apart from that will last years and sound is great, and not only for gaming like these "gaming" headsets, actual scams.

I heard here really good references about Beyerdynamic or Audio-technica headsets - they're a bit pricey but should have superior sound to any "gaming" headset.

The Glorious GMMK TKL has Gaterons Browns when you buy it - if you want to change them you have to buy them extra - you can then choose from either Gateron or Kailhs switches. pcgamingrace.com/products/gateron-switch.. - 35 dollars pcgamingrace.com/products/kailh-mx-switc.. - 40 dollars You get 120 in the pack which should be enough even for future replacement. pcgamingrace.com/products/gmmk-tkl-tenke.. - here you can buy the keyboard either stock with the gaterons or customize it which will cost you around 150 in total but you can choose many options. As for the Keychron k8 TKL - it also comes with some switches and keycaps but you should check youtube reviews - there are bunch of them and in an 8minute video will tell you everything you want to know. For example this one - youtube.com/watch?v=r2qCC0f7J80

There's a lot of great stuff from many different manufacturers. I like Steelseries a lot, i've got a Steelseries Mouse (don't remember which one), before i had Logitech G502, i liked it but it was too heavy and bulky for CS so i switched to a lighter and simpler mouse. Keyboard i have Corsair Mk2, i just wanted clicky keys back when i bought it, but if i were to choose now i'd have picked a Steelseries keyboard. I like the clicky noises, but it's a large keyboard, Steelseries makes a lot of smaller ones that i've heard is good. And i'm using the Steelseries Artic Pro as headset, i've never tried anything else, but i like it a lot. For monitor you can get a lot of cheap 144hz ones, i've got a Msi Optix 24", it costed me about $300 and i have no complaints. It's curved but it doesn't really do anything. Benq and Asus makes a lot of great monitors aswell, the Rog series is expensive, but probably great. The only thing i can say for sure is that the bump from 60hz to 144hz is huge, i started off with 60 and playing on 60 now feels slow. You can also get 240hz, but the difference from 144 to 240 is barely noticable compared to 60-144.

I see no point in lying about what peripherals you have. Thankfully to the replies here I could decide properly and was able to find products I didn't know about before - like for example the "Vaxee np-01" mouse or the "Xtrfy K4 RGB TKL" which is a superb keyboard. Without hltv mens leaving their comments here I would probably buy some overpriced razer keyboard and never found out about the vaxee np-01, which has to be one of the best competitive mouse out there. Thanks for the list tho! I am suggesting to go through here and read some opinions people left because, some were really heplful to me. Have a gooday!

The is a mute switch which i think is really cool and there is a volume wheel on the back, the headset is kinda light and i can wear it for around 10hrs without any problem) Monitor: Pixio px247 ( the px 248 is so much better but it recently came out so i wasnt able to get it, it has gsync and 144hz and the colors are good and it gets bright) Keyboard: E-Element z-88 ( its cheap and it gets the job done, you can find different company that sells one with outemu reds and they feel almost as good as cherry ones but are a bit louder)

Mouse - Zowie S2 I love the shape so much. My favourite by far. Headset - Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro Very comfortable. It doesn't have a microphone but makes up for it by sound amazing. Keyboard - Idk but it has cherry reds which are good. Monitor - Some Asus 144hz 1080p really great for the price and there is a 280hz that is the same.

What is your mic setup then? I'd like to buy either audio-technica, beyerdynamic or sennheiser headphones but every single one that has a mic on the headset costs like 300 euros:D

Keyboard: Ducky One 2 TKL Skyline Mouse: Razer Viper Ultimate Monitor: Legion Y27q-20 (27", IPS, 165hz) Headphones: HyperX Cloud Flight Would change mouse, I prefer the G Pro wireless shape, so maybe change to the new superlight version. As for monitor, I think TN panels are better for gaming colors wise. But I prefer IPS for any other task, so whatever. If I was super serious about gaming, I would have stuck with a 24" 1920x1080 240hz monitor instead. Love my headset and keyboard.

Thanks for the info, I can't decide whether to go for a 240hz or settle down with a QHD 144hz - usually the price gets even out that way... I want an IPS since I do a lot of video work on PC as well... Are you happy with the one you got? I am currently thinking of: ASUS VG259Q - 144hz, ips, fhd - just because it's on sale for 270e Dell Alienware AW2521HFA - 240hz, ips/led, fhd + good rgb acurracy and contrast ratio - it's way more pricey tho and I hesitate a lot since I am not a pro gamer and don't want to throw money for a "premium look" - it's 400e Do you have any suggestions ? Ty!

If you want to balance gaming and other stuff like watching movies and doing work, I would recommend getting an IPS, 144hz, 2560x1440 monitor, 27" monitor like the one I have. 240 Hz is overkill for games other than CS, Valorant and LoL, Dota

Ducky One 2 SF (65%, so without numpad), i like the small size, tho my keys are starting to get stuck (only 1y old) Zowie EC2-A, have had this for years already and i love it, would never change it. HyperX Cloud II, I just prefer a headset over headphones + mic, so thats why i've gone with this, probably gonna try the Logitech G-pro tho soon. Asus VG248 144Hz, Just a cheap 144hz and its my first 144hz too so been happy with it, tho probably wouldnt buy the same again.

I currently have DeathAdder v2 but it feels a bit to heavy and hard causes me fatigue after several hours of using it, I want to pick the model D- as it's slightly smaller - or would you say the model D, is fine? ty! I also wanted the g pro wireless but they're like 180e here so it's a pass from me I can live with a cable :D

I feel like the Model D would be a better option over the D-. The Model D is a size between Ec2 and Ec1. So its like a medium mouse. I never tryed the Deathadder but I heard the deathadder is larger than the Model D. I Kinda recommend the Model D. It's great quality and the shape is amazing. But if you don't like mouse wobble, I would maybe not recommend since the design of the mouse makes mouse wobble easy. It's not alot mouse wobble, but there is some. But if you get a copy without mouse wobble, the mouse is amazing and for the price It's worth it.

I'll check the dimensions to be sure, thanks. I saw some youtube reviews and just now googled glorious D mouse wobble and it seems there are quite few of these. I don't want to buy the zowie because it is really outdated and you still pay for it as if it were released this year which is hilarious. Thanks!
2021-01-31 18:22
Here's a comparison of model d- vs DA v2: rtings.com/mouse/tools/3d-model-shape-co.. and here's model d vs da v2: rtings.com/mouse/tools/3d-model-shape-co.. It looks like the model D- is overall more compact, while the Model D is shorter in the front but a bit longer towards the wrist area. I think I'll go for the D- in the end since I really want something slightly smaller, but it just might be the weight of the deathadder thats causing the fatigue :D I just have to try it... ty for the advice anyway!

Yes! I thought the Model D would be alot smaller then the deathadder. But it looks like the Model D isn't too much smaller. But try them out. Also if you buy the model D or D-, Buy them from the glorious website since you can contact them if there is any problem with the mouse and you will recive a nrw one :D

My opinion on things: Mouse: So ive had multiple mice over the past 2 years and it really comes down to what shape you link and what grip you use. For instance, if you like to finger tip you dont need a hump in the back. Check out rocketjumpninja on youtube and his website where you can fill in your hand dimensions and what grip you use and he gives you a list of good mice for your handsize and gripstyle. I've bought a mouse from this list and it was perfect for me. However, you can still use a mouse which isn't on there. Forinstance, the mouse on the list was a rival 310, i really liked it, but i got a good deal on a Aerox 3 so i tried it. And i love it. So it really comes down to whatever you prefer instead of asking what others like. Headset: I've been using HyperX for 2-3 years now, From the Cloud 2 to the Cloud flight and now the Cloud alpha. Amazing sound and comfort and probably wont ever switch back to steelseries or razer. I've had a kraken and arctis 7 before. And in my opinion the comfort is on a whole other level with HyperX, and the sound is amazing aswell, a litlle more bass heavy compared to razer and steelseries in my opinion but i like it. Monitor: I've had a regular 1080p 60hz, 1080p 144hz, Zowie 240hz and now a 1440p 144hz. If you are only going to play CS and grind as much as you can, and go for FPL-C for instance, you could go for a 240hz. But in any other instance i wouldn't. If you have the PC capable to play 1440p on good enough FPS, 1440p 144hz is the way to go. If you PC isnt good enough, you should opt for the 1080p 144hz. Besides Zowie's 240hz monitors, there isn't really such a big difference in the performance of the monitors in the same catergory and price catergory. Ofcourse you have more expensive 144hz monitors with extra features, but those features are a bonus and not necesarry. So if you like how it looks, the stand fits on your desk, you are satisfied with the reviews and specs, you should buy it. When it comes to TN, VA and IPS panels i dont really have the knowledge to tell you about that, what i do know is that TN is the best when it comes to the high refreshrate output and IPS has the best colour accuracy. I myself have a 1440p 144hz, i did have to reset for a week or 2 after ''downgrading'' the refreshrate from 240hz to 144hz, but in the end its good enough for me and now i can play other games in 1440p resolutions which looks amazing. So what monitor you choose will come down to what games you want to play and are playing, how good your pc is, and what your budget is. Keyboard: I'm using a Ducky One 2 TKL with MX silver switches. With keyboards I 100% recommend a mechanical keyboard. You can find real cheap ones for 50 eu on amazon for instance. The build quality, the keycaps and the lifetime of the switches won't be as good as a higher end 100-150 eu keyboard. But you can still easily play with a cheap one for 2 years. Like a mouse, choosing a keyboard mainly comes down to what switch you want, linear, tactile or clicky. And every category has different switches aswell. So if i were you i would do some research on youtube, look up some video's explaining all the specs of the switches and the difference between them. After that you can make a decision. You can always go to a techshop and try the different switches out for yourself so you get a hands on feel with the boards. The customisation which you can do with mechanical keyboards are awesome, anything from a cool USB-C coil cable to a cool set of keycaps. The main tip coming from me will be, do some research, watch reviews on youtube. Check websites for prices etc, select a few options, sum up the pros and cons of each and make a decision. Overall i dont really have a preferred company besides HyperX in headsets, so it just comes down to experience down the line and trying stuff at your friend's house or you local tech shop. My gear: Mouse, Steelseries Aerox 3 wireless Keyboard, Ducky One 2 TKL with MX silver switches and custom keycaps Headset: HyperX Cloud Alpha Monitor, Iiyama G-Master GB2760QSU-B1 I hope this helped someone, have a nice day!
