    Alienware adding new gaming peripherals to their product line

    I’ve always been a fan of Alienware, and their very powerful (and shiny) computers. I’ve loved the fact that you can customize their computers nicely to get what you want inside of them and to add a bit of your own personality via the case design and lighting. So when I got an email regarding a new line of gaming peripherals that they are releasing I was intrigued. In June, Alienware had released one of the first of these with their OptX AW2210 Monitor ($299). A 21.5″ full HD monitor that has some great specs to it including two HDMI ports, adjustable stand, four USB 2.0 ports for connecting various peripherals, and low input lag. Sounds like a pretty good monitor if you do a lot of gaming, and I know I would love those extra USB ports in the monitor for connecting some external hard drives and my headset.
