Genius ErgoMedia 500 Review

 

Genius have recently sent us their ErgoMedia 500 gaming keypad, which is aimed at gamers who don't want to spend a lot of money to improve their gaming prowess.

The ErgoMedia 500 is a great product for such a small price tag. It's not without its faults, as the units design needs work and it takes a bit of getting used to, but a useful device for Laptop or Desktop based gamers.
