Genius Ergo Media 500


Genius, a computer peripheral manufacturer, has recently sent us their ErgoMedia 500 Game Pad. From the first glance, this device seems to be well designed and looks as if it would be comfortable. Genius says that the "ErgoMedia 500 is a gaming key...

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.
