As the title says I am interested to see what equipment follower gamers use, i.e. do you have a favourite mouse, keyboard, headset, mic, monitor or some other equipment?

 

 

 

Mine would be my G933 wireless headset and I have just ordered a G13 programable keyboard which I am looking forward to using.

Mine would have to be the monitor. I got a Dell 2713HM 1440p. Absolutely love the higher rest, the panel is amazing. It could be faster, but besides that, I feel there is no point in getting a high end GPU if your monitor cant show you the results.

 

Besides that, probably the keyboard - Logitech G710+ and Das Keyboard 4. Love me them mechanical keys!

Logitech G5 Copper mouse - was expensive for a mouse back in the day :)

 

 

Loved this thing, weight cartridge made it perfect for me (like a heavy mouse), only stopped using it because the scroll wheel stopped working. Gave it to my daughter to use...and guess what.... 2 years later, damn scroll wheel starts working again :D Im use to its replacement now so wont swap back.

Wireless headset is something I couldn't do without these days (at present I use Logitech G930).

 

That particular model just has one annoying feature where turning it off requires you to hold the power button down for x number of seconds.

 

Where x equals one second more than the time you hold down the button for.

I've been using a my Logitech G710+ since Jan 2013 and it is by far my favourite piece of gaming hardware.

 

Another thing would be my Korean 1440p 120Hz monitor, cost me about $360 and I haven't had an issue with it over the 3 years  I've had it.

 

Also +1 for wireless headsets, once you get one it's hard to got back.

I loved my G5 as well but wore out the pads on it and couldnt find replacements so I gave it to my mother and got a Logitech G700S wireless gaming mouse, piece of crap with a 10 hour battery life if lucky, eventually replaced that with a Gamdias Zeus mouse. Took a while to get used to it (quite a large sized mouse) but once I had it adjusted to my liking amazing mouse.  Combined with my Plantronics Gamecom 788 headset and Im happy - so much better than any of my logitech headsets!

My Xim-4 paired with a Sony Nav controller and logitech g900 wireless mouse.

 

I switched to console gaming (PS4) fairly recently so that I could play with my kids. The controller just wasn't working for me on first person shooters so this seemed a good compromise for an ex pc master-race gamer :)

 

Now, if there was only a way to increase the field of view....

Nice looking piece of kit! How does the joystick placement work for you?

HTC Vive. It's hard to go back to flat games after this. And I was a huge skeptic until I tried it, like everyone else.

 

It's hard to describe the feeling roomscale virtual reality gives, especially when most people have only tried the vastly inferior mobile VR and likely come away disappointed.
