When it comes to tech reviews, it’s rare to cover products that are more than a few months old — maybe a year at the absolute most. Yet today, we’re looking at an almost uniquely enduring piece of technology, which first debuted in 2009: the Blue Microphones Yeti.
This USB microphone is billed as ‘the ultimate professional USB microphone’, and that’s not an empty boast. I’ve heard this microphone recommended for podcasters and game streamers for most of the past decade, with thousands swearing by its audio quality and ease of use. Finally though, I get to put it to the test — let’s begin!Features & [...]
The Speedlink Obsidia is a cuter, rounder version of the common gaming rodent. The Pikachu of gaming mice, if you will. The different shape is designed to offer an ergonomic advantage, but inside you’ll still find as many high-grade components as a more traditional gaming mouse. It sounds like a promising combination; let’s put it to the test.Features & Specifications5-button USB mouse Ergonomic design for right-handed use Thumb recess for increased comfort Precise optical sensor from 800 to 3200 DPI DPI switch for toggling between four settings 2D scroll wheel with precise notches Rubberised finish for comfort and a secure hold Quick and easy [...]

The CRIPT has a not-quite-square shape, listed on the product page as an ‘ergonomic [...]
The Fnatic Duel is something special: a modular gaming headset. That means you can set it up as a lightweight set of headphones for your smartphone, or as a more immersive headset for gaming at your PC.
The headphones have an impressive sonic pedigree as well, as they’re actually a rebranded version of AIAIAI’s well-regarded TMA-2 headphones. It seems like a match made in heaven, but do they work as well for PC gaming as they do in the DJ booth? Let’s find out.
It isn’t often that you find Bluetooth headphones for gamers, but that’s exactly what you get with the Creative Sound Blaster Evo Wireless. They cost a fair chunk of change at £50, so we’re hoping for great sound and solid build quality in addition to the flexibility offered by a triple-mode 3.5mm, USB and Bluetooth headset. We put ’em to the test, and here’s what we found!
Today we’re looking at the QPAD 8K, a laser gaming mouse. The 8K includes a high-DPI laser sensor, fancy RGB lighting and a ergonomic five-finger grip. It’s been a long time since we’ve reviewed a QPAD mouse, so I’m curious to see what I’ve been missing!
