Creative SXFI AIR

Creative SXFI AIR Review

A few weeks ago, we took a look at the Creative SXFI AIR and what made it stand out against other headsets. What we found out was that the Holographic Audio technology utilized by the headset is intended to provide an outstandingly realistic audio experience that aims to fool the user into believing the audio they are hearing is natural and genuine. While hearing the phrase 'holographic audio' for the first time might conjure images of Star Trek-ian technology, Holographic Audio, when broken down to its simplest form, is the next level of directional and ...

Google Pixel 3a Review

In October of 2018, we took the Google Pixel 3 XL for a test run, and loved our experiences with the phone, especially when it came to the camera. Even today, almost a year later, I still consider the Google Pixel 3 camera to be one of the best – if not the best – phone camera on the market. In step with out cell phone manufactures, Google has decided to launch a paired down version of the Google Pixel…

SteelSeries Stratus Duo feat

SteelSeries Stratus Duo Review

The SteelSeries Stratus Duo is effectively your one-stop shop for all of your on-the-go controller needs. In a world where gaming is available at our fingertips 24/7, at least for those of us who have our smartphones attached to our hips, accessories that enable or enhance mobile gaming are becoming much more popular. One major issue in particular is how difficult it can be to achieve precision movement while manipulating virtual joysticks on your smartphone screen, and up until recently there has not been an organic solution to this problem. Enter the ...

Google Nest Hub Review

When my family began introducing Google products into the home, we never imagined we would be where we are today. It began with a humble Google Home Mini a few years ago, but has since expanded to include a few more minis, a Google Home, numerous smart outlets, a Google Pixelbook, and just recently, the Google Nest Hub! Each and every device has made the Google experience at home just a bit more enjoyable, but no new product introduction has…

Turtle Beach Recon 70 Headset Review

Turtle Beach is one of the biggest companies for console accessories and is known for providing a wide range of products that fit every user's needs. With this in mind, we took a look at one of their budget headsets, the Turtle Beach Recon 70. Recently, more and more brands are offering budget and mid-tier products as they begin to realize that the casual gamer does not necessarily need top-level accessories, or the price tags that come with them. So, how does the Recon 70 fare as a budget level console headset? Let's find out!

Ewin Racing Champion Series Chair Review

Recently our friend Will in Canada had a chance to review the largest Ewin Racing chair available, the Flash-XL Gaming Chair, so we were bit surprised when we were contacted by Ewin again this time from their EU department. After a short conversation we agreed that our guys in Europe should have a chance to test the product as well considering there might be some differences with the product on the other side of the globe. It only made sense…

SteelSeries Rival 710 Gaming Mouse Review

The Rival 710 gaming mouse from SteelSeries is a sleek, new mouse that boasts a variety of unique and high-end features such as Tactile Alerts for quick notifications, swappable parts for performance customization, split-trigger mechanical switches, TrueMove3 optical sensor for pinpoint tracking accuracy and an OLED screen for in-game stats. While this may seem a lot to pack into one mouse, at a price point of $129.99 CAD (~$100USD) one should expect to see quite a few bells and whistles attached.

SteelSeries Arctis 5 Review

Thanks to our good friends at SteelSeries, I recently was given an Arctis 5 headset to review, and I must say that my first impressions were very mixed. It didn’t look flashy, it had a middle-of-the-road feel for both weight and sturdiness and it wasn’t wireless. From someone whose baseline headset is the Logitech G933, it was the exact opposite of what I had become used to. After using the headset for 30+ hours, however, my opinion on it has done a complete reversal.
