SteelSeries Siberia 350 Gaming Headset Review
     Mon, May 02 2016 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Siberia 350 headset is very easy to set up and work with thanks to the Engine 3 utility, while the volume controller is placed on the wire. If we look at both Siberia 650 (Elite Prism) and 350, we can see that the latter is a “lite” edition of the more expensive model, which does feature a less thick padding system, no analog interface and also less options we can configure throughout the software. However, the most important settings like the adjustable headband, DTS headphone, retractable unidirectional microphone, RGB illumination are available so we can enjoy the product with the same quality but at a much lower price."

Creative Sound Blaster Roar Pro Review
     Mon, May 02 2016 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Roar Pro comes with familiar Roar features as it shares the same dimensions, weight and aesthetic to the original Roar. It has a similar driver ensemble (that being 1x 2.5" sub, 2x 1.5" tweeters and 2x passive side radiators) that is powered a bi-amplified design, giving a dedicated amplifier for the stereo and subwoofer channels. Looking at the changes, the circuitry has been improved by the Creative team to maximise the efficiency of that 6000mAh battery, giving a nice bump in its rated life span from 8 to 10hrs (T&Cs apply). You will also find that the Roar Pro also sports the latest aptX Low Latency wireless codec that is recommended for syncing video/audio.

HyperX Cloud Revolver Pro Gaming Headset Review
     Sat, Apr 30 2016 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HyperX is one of the most instantly recognisable brands in the PC market today, and that’s no surprise given that they have produced many fantastic quality memory products that are in countless systems around the world. They took a dive into the world of peripherals a few years ago, releasing their much-praised Cloud headset, and later their Cloud II. Now HyperX is back again with what is set to be their greatest headset to date, the HyperX Cloud Revolver.

Creative SoundBlaster X Pro-Gaming H5 Headset Review
     Thu, Apr 28 2016 | 2:32P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Creative are on of the most iconic and instantly recognisable brands on the market when it comes to audio. Having created some of the most popular and best-performing consumer audio products for the PC market over the last few decades, I’m sure many of you, if not all of you, have owned or used a Creative product at one point or another. So when I heard that Creative felt they had one of the best gaming headsets on the market and that it would cost less than £100, I simply had to try it out.

ARCHOS 70b Helium Tablet Review
     Thu, Apr 28 2016 | 12:08P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink

Recently there has been a definite trend to having bigger mobile devices. Smartphone flagships are well over 5 inches in size now, and tablets are getting bigger too – just take a look at the 13.3 inch iPad Pro. It is refreshing, then, to see ARCHOS buck the trend with its 70b Helium tablet.

Tt eSports Shock 3D 7.1 PC Gaming Headset Review
     Thu, Apr 28 2016 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"As a mainstream-priced gaming headset, the Shock 3D 7.1 impressed us positively regarding the multitude of sound effects which can be obtained thanks to the C-Media Xear console and thanks to the thick cushion, large ear cups the headset does remain comfortable even during longer gaming sessions. Some of the effects and presets can be accessed right from the buttons placed on the left cup, while the volume wheel is quite large so we cannot miss it . Please keep though in mind that since we are dealing with an USB-only headset, its usage environment is quite limited (only PCs), not being able to work on consoles and on OSX we are missing the software to back it up (so the nice custom effects cannot be accessed at all)."

Edifier M1370BT 2.1 Bluetooth Speaker System Review
     Wed, Apr 27 2016 | 12:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Right after taking a look at the overall product dimensions and specifications, we lowered our expectations for the audition stage; after checking out some YouTube music videos though, the system did surprise us with the overall quality at decent volume levels, which would make it a very good replacement for TV sets which do have sub-par integrated speaker systems."

Creative Sound BlasterX G5 7.1 HD Audio Portable Sound
     Thu, Apr 21 2016 | 11:55A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In order to check out the card performances, we have used the Rightmark Audio Analyzer utility (with all effects disabled, in order to get accurate results) which tells an interesting story! The included Cirrus Logic CS4398 DAC along with the Texas Instruments TPA6120A2 headphone amplifier are a very good combination since this new model passes over the Omni 5.1 with flying colors and we can say that it positions itself safely near the internal variants: Titanium HD and Sound Blaster ZxR. This is quite a great deal considering that it is not taking any more extra space inside our computer (some ITX builds do not allow installation of a dedicated sound card) and can be also switched back and forth between consoles, PCs/Laptops but also Macs."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
