Best gaming headset 2019: Our top PC picks

When you're looking for the best gaming headset money can buy, there are three things to keep in mind. It goes without saying that it needs to have top-notch audio quality, but it also needs to be comfortable and have a good built-in microphone. After all, there's no point getting a great-sounding headset that pinches your skull after 30 minutes, or one you can't use…

Build a Black Friday PC: The best 1080p gaming PC for under $590

Black Friday is a brilliant time for upgrading your PC on the cheap, but arguably it's an even better time for first-time PC builders looking to assemble all the necessary parts for the lowest price possible. Now I've already cribbed together a PC for UK builders that can play Plunkbat and Battlefield V on max settings at 1080p for under £600, but for US builders…

Corsair HS70 Wireless review: My new favourite wireless gaming headset

PCs are a messy business. Most of us have wires up the wazoo, and probably not an insignificant number of knots and snarled cables to go with them. Problem is, not many of us are willing to forgo the speed and reassurance that comes from having a wired set of peripherals - except, that is, when it comes to our headsets. Life is so much…

Corsair K68 RGB review: A spill resistant keyboard that only wants to get its toes wet

We've all done it. I've even ruined a rather expensive gaming laptop doing it. And yet, I still keep a long, tall glass of water on my desk every day (not to mention multiple mugs of tea) because I'm an idiot who can't learn from her own mistakes. Right next to my keyboard. One accidental swipe of my arm, or a mad dash across my…

Corsair launches their second gaming chair, the T2 Road Warrior

When you think of Corsair, you probably think of RAM, keyboards and gaming headsets like the Void Pro RGB, but did you also know they make gaming chairs? Well, you do now, and their second such chair, the T2 Road Warrior, is about to bring all the bells and whistles to the world of derriere gaming support thanks to its many degrees of tilt and reclining comfort. And before you…

Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB and MM800c RGB Polaris review: The ultimate rainbow lightshow

When I first saw Corsair's Scimitar mouse a couple of years ago, I thought it was the most bonkers-looking thing I'd ever seen. Just like its equally mad successor, the Scimitar Pro RGB I've got here, it had 12 mechanical buttons on the side. Twelve! This is a calculator, not a mouse, I thought to myself at the time. How could anyone possibly need 12 individual…

Corsair K70 Lux RGB review: Softly, softly with the MX Silent edition

As much as I loved the Asus ROG Claymore when I tested it at the end of last year, there's still a very large part of me that balks at the idea of spending £150 on a mechanical keyboard. After years of being perfectly happy with admittedly terrible plastic membrane concoctions, it's hard to let go. The Corsair K70 Lux RGB isn't any less expensive…

Corsair Void Pro RGB review: Supreme comfort marred by underwhelming surround

I thought it would be ages before I found another pair of headphones that could rival Steelseries' superb Arctis 7 for [block id="604477" title="Best gaming headset"], but it turns out great headsets are a bit like buses. You wait ages and then two come along at once. This time, it's Corsair's Void Pro RGB.

Week in Tech: New Intel Chips, More Mega-Monitors

It's January and that can only mean one thing. Well, apart from New Year's resolutions serially and unceremoniously defenestrated by the second week and a general sense of futility. No, I speak of the festival of capitalism gone completely mad that is CES in Las Vegas. Which actually happened last week. CES isn't exactly the epicentre of all things PC. But it's so bleedin' huge,…

Week in Tech: CES Show Special

Pull up a chair, pop the kettle on, stoke the fire, strangle a cat - whatever it is that loosens you up for some serious hardware hotness (Legal disclaimer: Do not strangle a cat) - and brace yourself for my CES round-up. We've already covered a few of the major announcements and developments, including Steam machines, high-res Oculus Rift and Razer's Project Christine easy-upgrade shizzle.…
