Looking for a competitive advantage in your favorite game, or a way to communicate with your friends online without spending a fortune? The gaming headset market is extremely competitive right now, and there are countless options to pick from. TekRepublic looks to stand out their lightweight, virtual surround 7.1 gaming headsets.

Using a touchscreen is something we are used to with our mobile phones and tablets but it really has not translated to the desktop all that well. Yes there have been all-in-one touchscreen systems, but for the most part they have been clunky and Windows 7 really is not made for a touchscreen. This all changes with Windows 8. The Metro interface in Windows 8 is more or less designed to be used with a touchscreen device. Today we are checking out Lenovo’s flagship all-in-one and their largest as well with a 27-inch touchscreen display. The IdeaCentre A720 features a very sleek and thin design, NVIDIA GeForce Graphics, a TV tuner, HDMI in and out, WiFi, Bluetooth and much more. Read on as we have some fun and check out this system.

Chances are if you’re a gamer, you own a Razer product or have at least thought about buying one. Mainly known for their mice, Razer products have an attractive look, and often outperform the competition. In this review we’ll be checking out a headset.

But how does it perform, and can it stand toe to toe with the similar Logitech Wireless Headset F540? Dive into the complete review to find out.
Logitech is a brand that virtually every computer user and PC gamer knows and associates with quality products. While Logitech has a stronghold in the PC gaming market, their share in the console world is a bit smaller. The Wireless Headset F540 is ready to change that. The F540 is equipped to deliver game and voice audio wirelessly for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Featuring independent volume controls, 40mm laser-tuned drivers, audio inputs for up to three sources, a rechargeable battery, and great sound, the F540 aims to give console gamers a taste of what Logitech has provided PC gamers with for years.
