So we come to the last of our CES 2013 coverage articles, it’s been one long and exciting trip with literally thousands of new products being shown, announced, launched, previewed and more across nearly every sector of the consumer electronics industry imaginable. We’ve seen new chassis, keyboards, monitors, systems, graphics cards, games, phones, cars and all kinds of crazy stuff launched through out the event and I’m still struggling to take all the information in.
Of course while we did drop by the show floor a couple of times, the bulk of the work for eTeknix was focused on one to one meetings with hardware manufacturers and designers to find out what the latest PC related products would be hitting the market in 2013 and beyond, so lets get started Andy has a chat with Aaron from BeQuiet! and see what they had to offer.
Rosewill had a vast range of products on offer at CES, with everything from professional security systems to HDD docking stations. First up we have their latest Powerline AV Wall Plug Adapters, Dual Band Wireless Adapters, Gigabit Switch and a pair of routers.
Their new chassis ranges start from M-ITX all the way up to the Throne Full Tower chassis.
The Throne has all the features you would expect in a premium gaming chassis, top cooling vents, radiator support, built in fan controllers and plenty of style.
For those that love a good storage accessory we have the SSD/HDD External Enclosure, METAS USB 3.0 & eSATA Enclosure and the Dual Bay Docking Station.
For those that like their storage a little more serious we have a 5 bad and 8 bay NAS solution, that in terms of design look rather fantastic.
Tired of using manual probes to check your system tempratures? click of a button and you can test with high presision without ever having to reach inside your computer thanks to these Infrared Thermometers.
Chasing up the peripheral sector we have this fantastic white mechanical keyboard, something we hope to have in for review shortly.
One of my favourite featured items though were these slim HDMI cables, its nothing earth shattering but they’re a great way of keeping things neat and tidy behind your computer or home entertainment setup, plus they also meet the highest requirements of the current HDMI specification.
A full compliment of PSU’s, remote controls and security equipment complete the rest of the Rosewill lineup.
Roccat are a premium gaming peripheral brand and that’s a title they aim to keep with the launch of their latest keyboard the Ryos MK Pro. It only took the first 2mins of a 30min demonstration to realise this is one of the most customisable keyboards ever created and while a lot of attention has gone into its software, lighting and overall design it still retains the functionality and performance we have come to expect from a Roccat product.
This is no ordinary performing keyboard though as its powered by twin 32-Bit ARM Cortex CPU’s that handle its lighting and key presses to make sure it never, ever, misses a beat.
The rest of the range on display are products we are more than familiar with, including the recently reviewed Kone XTD. Roccat are putting a lot of focus on their new keyboard and when we get one in for review you will understand why this is rightly their main focus at this time.
This it from eTeknix and CES 2013 and we look forware to bringing you some fantastic reviews from all the manufacturers we saw at the show. CES is a huge show and even still this was the biggest CES to date! It’s impossible to cover the whole event no matter how you tackle it and I’m sure there are plenty of things we missed, yet we still saw many great products that should make for an exciting 2013 and beyond.
