chocoTaco fist started making a name for himself in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) after consistently achieving rank 1 on the North American servers. This gave him the confidence to attempt streaming in June 2017 and is also what caused his channel’s following to grow so rapidly that he felt comfortable about quitting his job to pursue fulltime streaming only a few months later. Since then, he has gone on to sign with TSM and to rake up over one million subscribers to his Twitch channel.
Although he is no longer rank 1, he is still considered top be among the top PUBG players, so it may be worthwhile to check out the equipment in chocoTaco’s gaming setup.
What Monitor Does chocoTaco Use?
chocoTaco uses an Acer Predator XB252Q monitor. The Acer Predator XB252Q is a 24.5-inch monitor with embedded NVIDIA G-Sync anti-tear technology, 1ms response time and a 240Hz refresh rate. The screen offers a 1920 x 1080 full HD display and rests on an Acer ErgoStand that can be tilted and swiveled up to 45°, tilted between -5° – 21° and adjusted up to 115mm from the desk.
The monitor can also be removed from the stand and has VESA mounting capability for 100mm x 100mm wall and arm mounting. Although the screen’s refresh rate is very high, this is clearly reflected in $450 USD price-tag. It’s also worth noting that DrLupo, Myth and summit1g all use monitors with a 144Hz refresh rate, so best isn’t always necessary, even for those who take fps gaming seriously.
What Mouse Does chocoTaco Use?
chocoTaco uses a Logitech G703 mouse. The Logitech G703 is a wireless right-handed mouse with Lightsync RGB capabilities. It also features a Hero 16K sensor with the capacity for the sensitivity to be set between 100-16, 000 DPI and has a tracking speed of up to 400+ IPS, allowing for quick response times during intense fps battles. There are rubber side-grips to help with both comfort and control.
It has a battery life of up to 35 hours and has a 1.8m USB charging cable that allows the user to continue gaming while it is charging. It is also compatible with their Logitech G Powerplay charging mousepad. Furthermore, although the mouse has a base weight of 95g, it also comes with a 10g magnetic weight that can be inserted into the base for those who prefer heavier mice. It also has six programable buttons. All of the various settings can be adjusted through Logitech’s G hub gaming software.
What Keyboard Does chocoTaco Use?
chocoTaco uses a Logitech G Pro keyboard. The Logitech G Pro is a tenkeyless RGB-backlit keyboard favored by many streamers and pro-gamers including Slappie, HighDistortion and ProdigyAcess, so it is unsurprising that it would also be included in chocoTaco’s gaming setup. It is built with Romer G switches that Logitech claims with “deliver 25 percent faster actuation than standard mechanical switches,” which is useful for high-speed gaming.
The keys have a keystroke signal processing time of 2.5ms as well as a response time of 1ms.The keys are also guaranteed for 70 million keystrokes. The keyboard can be adjusted up to three angles and have rubber feet that help to keep it remain stationary. It does not come with a wrist rest.
What Headset Does chocoTaco Use?
chocoTaco uses a Logitech G Pro X headset. The Logitech G Pro X headset integrates Blue VO!CE Technology. It is supposed to enhance the audio quality of the microphone’s output above the audio output that is usually produced by Logitech’s G Pro headset microphones. However, chocoTaco uses a Shure SM7B microphone, which is also used by Tfue, meaning that you won’t get an accurate idea of what the Logitech G Pro X’s microphone is capable of unless you watch YouTube review videos to get a realistic idea of what the Logitech G Pro X microphone vocal outputs sound like.
This headset also features a built-in voice monitoring system as well as DTS 7.1 surround sound capabilities. This differs from the old Logitech G Pro headset, as they lack the voice monitoring system and utilize stereo surround sound.
What Webcam Does chocoTaco Use?
chocoTaco uses a SONY A7 III camera. The Sony A7 III is a 4k mirrorless camera with a 24.2MP BSI full frame image sensor. The sensor also as 1.8x data processing speed and has backside illumination. This camera also has built-in image stabilization with a 15 stop dynamic range and 5 stops of shake reduction.
The lens has 4D focus with an ISO range of 100 – 51,200 that can be expanded to ISO 50 – 2,048,007. It is also compatible with the Sony E mount lenses, some of which can be purchased as part of a bundle with the base camera. It’s battery can last up to 200 mins with continuous shooting, and there are separate battery storage grip accessories that can be bought for storing an extra battery and assisting the grip.
Therefore, this camera is more useful for vlogging and filming other IRLL content, rather than for basic streaming. So, if you are starting out, you may want to consider buying a basic web camera, rather than a professional camera.
