Two new Razer laptops offer power and profile at a premium photo
Two new Razer laptops offer power and profile at a premium
by Steven Hansen

Every time I see a razor blade in person I have to pick it up. Those things are dangerous and shouldn't be left lying about. Kids could put them in their mouth or pigeons could weaponize them. Maybe mobsters will smuggle them into prisons to slice their garlic.

The same thing happens when I see a Razer Blade. I try to keep tech fetishization to a minimum, but seeing a sort of pretty, svelte laptop playing Sleeping Dogs at 3200 x 1800, I can't help but be a little bit impressed. I pick up the Blade just to make sure it isn't attached to the desk it's on with secret desk innards powering it. Nope, it's a for-real laptop, lighter and thinner than what I'm writing on now and I can barely run Portal

If you can trick your work into expensing $2,000+ laptops, you should get one of these new two.

Review: Nyrius Aries Pro Wireless HD for Laptops photo
Review: Nyrius Aries Pro Wireless HD for Laptops
by Dale North

Connecting your PC (or game console) to your television isn't necessarily difficult, but the cabling can be a bit of a hassle. The HDMI outputs on better laptops and most GPUs make it easier by sending both video and audio over one cable, but an optimal setup would still require Ethernet cabling as well. And if your PC is far away from your television, the situation gets a bit messier. 

What if you could just leave your PC in its room and send the audio and video signals wirelessly? Nyrius' Aries Pro lets you do exactly that. I spent a week with the set in my home, trying it out on console gaming, PC gaming, and a bit of web surfing. Read on for our full review

You're going to want Nvidia's G-SYNC

We've known about Nvidia’s G-Sync tech for a bit, but seeing how it performs first hand at CES today has moved the purchase of new compatible hardware up my priority list by quite a bit. Nvidia had several of the newly ...

Up close and personal with Razer's Project Christine

At CES today, Razer snuck us in to get a closer look at their newly unveiled modular PC concept, which they've codenamed Project Christine. We got to talk to them about how this odd looking tower of blocks would work, and then we got to get up close to take some pictures.  I got in trouble for touching it!

Review: D-Link DGL-5500 Gaming Router photo
Review: D-Link DGL-5500 Gaming Router
by Joshua Derocher

Having a good router is a necessity these days. Every electronic device you own connects to the internet, and many play games online and stream HD video. Your PC and consoles are beginning to rely more and more on digital copies of games, and patches for those games are growing in size. In my apartment we have several computers, iPods, iPads, phones, and game consoles, and they are all hooked up to the internet. I need a good router to keep up with demand.

I've had D-Link's newest gaming router, the DGL-5500, hooked up for a few weeks now, and I am actually surprised at well it's been working out. It might not be the best router you can buy, but it certainly won't disappoint.

Review: Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro headphones
by Dale North

If you read this site regularly you'll know that I've reviewed a lot of headsets. A lot of gaming headsets, I should say. I'm not out to dump on any of them, but I want to start this review by saying that these Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro headphones sound better than any of the phones I've reviewed for this site.

Flat out. No question.

Review: Feenix 2014 Nascita Gaming Mouse & Dimora Pad
by Chris Carter

Once I find a mouse I like, I tend to stick to it for quite a while. Right now, I'm still using the Logitech G700s Rechargeable Gaming Mouse I picked up in April, and it doesn't look like I'm going to switch anytime soon.

But I did come across a piece of hardware that I'll use for my extra machines, or in special cases given one of its neat tricks -- the Feenix 2014 Nascita Gaming Mouse.
