Xbox Series X Review – The Power of Dreams

We didn’t review the Xbox One seven years ago. We didn’t get a preview unit and nobody on staff at the time was interested enough to pick it up day one. Man, what a difference seven years makes, because the Xbox Series X is a triumph. Check out our One Dislike, Three Likes article about the Xbox Series X! This console has been built by gamers for gamers, and it comes through in every interaction you have with it. From…

The PlayStation 5 is a must by, and probably the only next-generation system you need this year. Let's dive in!

Alcatel 1B feat

Alcatel 1B Review

The Alcatel 1B aims to provide the essential smartphone experience at a fraction of the cost. It runs Android 10 Go edition, which is intended to use less RAM than the full operating system - a key requirement when budgeting a smartphone device at $100. While nobody should expect top-tier performance from a budget device, there must conversely exist enough function on these more affordable devices for them to provide any value whatsoever. That being said, where does the Alcatel 1B stack up? Let's dive right in and find out!

Not too long ago, Creative revealed its Super X-Fi technology and began implementing it in many of their new headphones. The Aurvana Trio Wireless is a neckband set of earbuds that promises extremely high audio quality without the hassle of bulky headphones or tangled wires. Neckbands might be the most uncommon type of headphone when compared to typical fully wired or wireless earbuds or traditional over-the-ear headphones, but they certainly have their place. How will the newly-envisioned Aurvana Trio Wireless headphones stack up to the competition? Let's ...

Over the years, TCL displays have become better and better, and TCL TVs are becoming more popular and a go-to choice for many consumers.

Creative BT-W3 Bluetooth Transmitter Review

For all of the technological advancements that are flying towards us at an increasing rate, there are still many gaps in compatibility that are glaring when you end up on the wrong side of them. Bluetooth connectivity is one such gap. Even though more and more headsets and audio devices are Bluetooth enabled, it is wild to think that current-gen consoles do not have native Bluetooth functionality. Enter the Creative BT-W3 Bluetooth transmitter, designed to help turn (almost) any device into a Bluetooth capable one, with your choice of codecs. How does it ...

A relatively young company, ROCCAT has been producing quality hardware since 2007 and boasts premium German engineering. While there is no doubt that German engineering is known around the globe for its high quality, attention to detail and uncompromising efficiency, how much can this truly transfer to something as relatively simple as premium PC gaming accessories?

Creaetive Soundblaster G3 feat

Creative Soundblaster G3 Review

As a rule, I am often skeptical of third-party accessories that claim to offer a boost in audio quality, especially when these accessories are reasonably priced. More often than not, accessories of this type will indeed created an amplified audio experience, but at the cost of heavy distortion. Other times you receive what is, in essence, no more than an advanced audio EQ - not something worth dropping any significant money on in my opinion. With these things in mind, I set my expectations fairly low for the Creative Soundblaster G3. How did it compare? Let's ...
