A last minute holiday gift guide for the lazy gamer

December 20, 2019

Time to admit it: you need a gift guide. It’s a few days to Chrimbo and you’ve only just realised because you’ve been playing Death Stranding. You’ll be at the shopping centre this weekend to see Star Wars which presents an opportunity to do some last minute Christmas shopping. But what do you get the […]

Tech Review: The HyperX Alloy Core RGB is a great gaming keyboard under $100

February 6, 2019

I really like HyperX’s keyboards. I’m on record as a fan of their gear. The thing is, I’ve really only had experience with their top-of-the-line mechanical boards. The HyperX Alloy Core RGB gaming keyboard is not one of these top-of-the-line boards. But just because it isn’t a mechanical board doesn’t mean it isn’t worth your […]

Tech Review: The HyperX Fury RGB SSD is beautiful but outclassed by the competition

February 4, 2019

On paper, the HyperX Fury RGB SSD sounds like a really impressive little hard drive. Up to 550/440MB/s of sequential read/write, and lots of lovely, fully customisable onboard LEDs for those who like their desktop lit up like Dutch new year. In practice, however, it leaves quite a bit to be desired. The Fury RGB […]

Tech Review: HyperX Alloy FPS RBG Mechanical Keyboard gives you speed and accuracy in the colours of the rainbow

January 7, 2019

I like the HyperX Alloy FPS range of mechanical keyboards, that much is fairly Well Documented by now. It’s also getting harder to review them because, to be perfectly honest, there isn’t exactly a ton of variation model-to-model. Part of this is that HyperX already make a bloody solid board. It isn’t broke, so there […]

Tech Review: HyperX Cloud Stinger Core: Great sound on a budget

July 11, 2018

The HyperX Cloud Stinger Core shouldn’t sound as good as it does. This is a $70 AUD pair of headphones. You expect certain things from $70 headphones. You expect them to be cheap. You expect them to be made from hard, unyeilding plastic that keeps them from being worn comfortably for long periods. You certainly […]

Tech Review: HyperX Cloud Flight Wireless Gaming Headphones: Long, loud life

May 16, 2018

Gaming headphones have come such a long way in the last couple of years, particularly those of the wireless variety. Gone are the days of terrible sound and blink-and-you’ll-miss-it battery lives. Now, if you aren’t providing premium quality sound, no-one wants a bar of you. HyperX has always seemed to be a gaming peripheral maker […]

Tech Review: Hyper X Alloy FPS Pro Mechanical Keyboard is somehow even more stripped back than its larger cousin

January 8, 2018

It was only a few months ago that we reviewed the Hyper X Alloy FPS on this very website. A low-fi piece of tech that values performance over bells and whistles, we found it to be a quality board for those who like to keep things simple. Imagine our surprise when its cousin, the Alloy FPS […]

Tech Review: HyperX Cloud Alpha Pro Gaming Headset: Bang for buck

October 24, 2017

It’s risky to send me headphones for review, especially gaming headphones. I am a hard-to-please audiophile at the best of times and gaming headsets never pass muster for me. Almost without exception the mix is bad, the weight oppressive and the degree to which they clamp down on your ears borderline painful. So intense is […]

Tech Review: HyperX Alloy FPS Mechanical Keyboard is the no-nonsense gaming keyboard you’ve been looking for

May 9, 2017

The HyperX Alloy FPS is a mechanical keyboard that (if you believe the marketing) has been built from the ground up to suit those gaming hobbyists who spend most of their time playing first-person shooters. Known mostly for their eSports sponsorships, headsets and high-end RAM for gaming PC’s, HyperX’s first mechanical keyboard is one for […]
