The Razer Blade 15 Advanced is one of the best gaming laptops money can buy

June 13, 2019

I consider this review a bit of a challenge. It’s not because I don’t know about PC’s — in fact, I use them daily. It’s simply because I don’t game on them. I’m a console man, the ease and simplicity they offer working better for me and my situation overall. So: being trusted with one […]

The newly improved Razer Kraken builds on perfection

April 2, 2019

I loved my first Razer Kraken headset. With its chunky earpads and lurid green colour scheme, it was the perfect thing to draw heads on buses — as if I’d only walked in to say ‘look at me, look at me!’ With its newest iteration, Razer improves on perfection, but you’ll have to look hard […]

Tech Review: The Razer Kraken Tournament Edition Wired Gaming Headset is Music to our Ears

November 24, 2018

I have a very delicate head, I really do. Princess and the Pea style, in fact. Every set of headphones I’ve tried has squashed and squeezed my little noggin every which way, giving me headache upon headache as I’ve searched in vain to find the answer. It’s appropriate that we’re coming into the holiday season, […]

Tech Review: Razer Core X is a gaming device for a very specific audience

September 8, 2018

On paper, the idea behind the Razer Core X might sound like the pinnacle of PC Gaming Master Race wank. At first blush, it seems like Razer took the PCMR drive to squeeze every last ounce of power out of one’s gaming rig, no matter the cost, and made it a physical device. I sound […]

The Razer Core X will let you turn your laptop into a desktop gaming rig (with a couple of caveats)

May 22, 2018

It doesn’t take long for a laptop, even one in the gaming tier, to start feeling long in the tooth. On the PC, there’s no upper limit on the hardware required for optimal gaming performance, and this is often to the laptop’s detriment.

Tech Review: Razer Hammerhead BT: Little where it counts *Updated*

May 8, 2018

Tech Review: Razer Electra V2 USB Gaming Headset: Back to basics and a step forward

Tech Review: Razer Wolverine Tournament Edition PC/Xbox One Controller: Pushing your buttons

March 13, 2018

When I was a kid, third party controllers were to be scoffed at. There was always one janky unofficial controller in the set that no-one wanted to use on Multiplayer Night. Times have changed though and the third-party peripheral market has never been quite this robust. Razer’s latest tilt at a high quality controller  is […]
