Astro A10 Gen 2 Headset Review

This day and age it seems we all have more than one set of headphones. From an everyday carry set of earbuds to an all singing, all dancing set of headphones for home use.

Many of you may even have dedicated sets for each purpose. Movies, music, working from home, fitness, and gaming.

Each purpose has different requirements and demands from a headset and the Astro range have been at the forefront of gaming headsets for a long time now.

JBL Quantum 610 Wireless, review

I’ve been lucky enough to spend the last few weeks playing with the JBL Quantum 610 Wireless headset. As laid out in my review of the 600’s the brand is solid, so here we are with an upgrade.

I think it’s only fair to get this out of the way. This is a seriously good headset.

Logitech G923 “TRUEFORCE” Racing Wheel, Review

The Logitech G923 steering wheel is not cheap, with its RRP around the $600+ NZD mark.

That is a lot of money, but in this particular case, its a strong argument for the adage…”you get what you pay for”.

I loved every moment with the wheel and was gutted I had to send it back to Logitech NZ.

Aerox 9 Wireless Mouse

A long time ago a mouse for me was a wired device with a dust gathering ball at its heart.

The Aerox 9 proves we are a long way past the days of white spirit soaked cotton-buds. Before getting the chance to review a ‘real’ gaming mouse, I wouldn’t walk past the budget mice.

I mean, they all point and click, right?

I’m never too proud to say I was wrong.

A500 Mini, review

If the Commodore64 signified my formative years in gaming, then the Amiga 500 dragged me through my angsty teens.

The leap from 8-bit to 16-bit was enormous, the leap in quality and engagement groundbreaking.

Not forgetting the transition from twiddling Azimuth Heads on a tape drive to the joy of slotting in a floppy disc or six.

H3PRO Hybrid, review

Back in November last year I reviewed the EPOS H6PRO, now its fancier relative the H3PRO Hybrid steps up.

Where the previous set was a wired option that did exactly what it said on the tin. The H3PRO Hybrid offers up a fistful of possibilities, even down to mixing mobile calls with gaming audio.

The H3PRO Hybrid is a headset for today’s world and will suit multi-platform gamers that also need to hit Microsoft Teams during the day.

Logitech G413 SE mechanical keyboard review

Over the years, I’ve had a few Logitech PC peripherals, mainly keyboards and mice, and I have to say I’ve always been a big fan of the company’s hardware.

All of the keyboards I’ve used over the years, however, have been standard ones. By that I mean they didn’t have mechanical keys.

Well, that changed recently when Logitech got in touch asking if I’d be keen to check out its G413 SE.

A wired mechanical gaming keyboard with tactile mechanical switches that feels excellent to game and type on.

MX Keys Mini, Review (Hardware)

Keyboards. The unsung heroes of both work and play.

Most of us are just happy with whatever we get with the computer. We don’t even give it a second thought until the space bar stops working.

But in this day and age we all tend to have multiple devices, many that don’t have a physical keyboard. TV’s, tablets, phones, even gaming consoles. And we all know the pain of using the TV remote to enter Arnold Schwarzenegger into the Netflix app.

A Bluetooth keyboard is what you need. A nice sleek, mini one that looks at home on the coffee table.

Alienware M15 R6, gaming laptop review

Alienware’s M15 R6 gaming laptop is a beast of a machine. Clad in Alienware’s dark side of the moon colour scheme, the laptop looks nice as soon as it comes out of the box and ticks all the required boxes for a gaming laptop.

As a long time Intel CPU user, the i7 11800H CPU performed excellently in everything I threw at it, as well. It’s a winning combination.

A big thanks to Intel ANZ for providing the laptop for us to review.
