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. More specifically, the stereo version of the Razer Chimaera. It has the good looks that every Razer product shares, and a fancy spec sheet. 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.
Le Pan is a name you may not know but you really should. We have received so much feedback on our review of the original Le Pan TC970 tablet and our unboxing video is one of our most viewed videos on our YouTube page. The Le Pan tablets are really powerful and great tablets. There are so many Android tablets out there it is really hard to decide which one to get, especially with all of these larger brands shoving their overpriced and underpowered tablets down your throat. The Le Pan II is much improved over the original Le Pan tablet with a faster processor, more memory and it runs Android 3.2 with a free upgrade to 4.0 when it becomes available. Let’s take a look at see what the TC979 is all about.
If there is one thing that has always bothered me it was that I have about 6 remotes for everything that is in my home theater setup. This means I have to keep track of all 6 and if I lose one it is a pain. Even a universal remote is something that can easily be lost. If there is one thing that you always have with you it is your cell phone. Griffin has come up with a really cool device that allows you to control everything in your home theater with your iPhone or iOS device. It’s called the Griffin Beacon and we are going to take a look at it today.
I only started using earphones or earbuds as many people call them a few years ago. So many people think that all earphones are the same and will use the ones that come with their device. I did that for quite some time before I tried a different set of earphones and since then I’ve been trying all different types of earphones. Today we have a set of earphones on the more expensive end coming in at $130. These zinc-alloy earphones feature 8mm V-MASQUE drivers, BLISS 3.0 (Bass Level Isolating Soft Silicone) hybrid silicone fittings, Kevlar® reinforced cables and a 24K gold plated plug. Let’s check them out and see if they will be the next earphones you own.
Today we’ll be looking at a Blu-ray burner. Not just any normal looking burner, but one that has some style. Blu-ray discs are certainly becoming more and more popular with every month passing, so is it really worth buying a Blu-ray player for your home theatre or is it more economical to put a Blu-ray burner in your HTPC? Read on further to see if this high end burner will do the trick for you.
A couple of weeks ago when Bob was unboxing the Corsair SP2500 High-Power 2.1 PC Speaker System he made mention of how large they were. I really did not think that much of it until I went to pick up the speakers up from Bob’s place I thought he was having me review a 21 inch CRT monitor. The box is that huge. Most of the time people can claim that a 2.1 system is small enough to be semi-portable. This system, by definition is the exact opposite. Heavy and Huge. I was excited to get these boys home to hook up and play with them. Lets see what that play session yielded.
Okay, I’m not going to lie, when Bob asked me to review a set of Genius speakers I was quite skeptical. Let’s just be nice and say Genius doesn’t have the best reputation for producing/selling the best quality speakers. Hell, Genius isn’t that many letters away from ‘generic’ and the fact that Apple employees are also called ‘Genius’s’ (I HATE APPLE) gave these speakers a sour taste before I even saw the box.
I did a bit of research on these speakers after seeing the un-boxing video a week or so ago on the ThinkComputers website and I was surprisingly impressed. The company’s website claims “Genius brings all serious listeners a new set of speakers, SP-HF2020, to experience magnificent sound.” Let’s see how accurate that statement is and if my first impression holds true.
