Office for iPad Keyboard Case review round-up

Office for iPad Keyboard Case review round-up

Office for iPad has arrived, but while there's little question now that tablets can be used for productivity, sometimes it takes a real keyboard to get proper work done. Thankfully even before Office's much-anticipated release, Bluetooth keyboard cases for the iPad Air and iPad mini have proliferated. Head on past the cut as we look at the best from Zagg, Logitech, Belkin, and Microsoft.

HTC One M8 Review (2014)

HTC One M8 Review (2014)

The new HTC One (M8) needs to succeed, and HTC is taking no chances. As well as an even sleeker design, innovative Duo camera, and clever software enhancements, HTC is drastically cutting the waiting time, putting the new One up for sale from today across all four major US carriers as well as in select international markets. It's clear HTC has learned from its mistakes with the original One, but does the new One M8 deliver enough to give the company the edge this time around? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

Turtle Beach Titanfall Earforce Atlas Gaming Headset Review

Turtle Beach Titanfall Earforce Atlas Gaming Headset Review

While we’ve left "for Xbox One" out of the title here, we’ve done so for a (relatively good) reason. This is because, while this headset is aimed at the Xbox One, it does not need to be used with the Xbox One - and it’s just as viable an option for the Xbox 360. In the box you’ll be getting every cord you need to connect to basically any device you have, and the headset is Titanfall branded - is that enough?

ControllerMAX gaming controller converter Review

ControllerMAX gaming controller converter Review

The device known as ControllerMAX allows you to plug in and use essentially any gaming controller into any console or PC - it’s as simple as that at the baseline. This device is no larger than a USB dongle and just as light - and that’s what you get in the box - simple at the outset. NOTE: The brand formerly known as ChronusMAX has become ControllerMAX in the time it’s taken for us to review this device, believe it or not, so supposing you’re seeing the lead image in this review and are baffled by it, fear not - it’s the same device.

Titanfall Review

Titanfall Review

Prepare to be wowed. In Titanfall, the developers at Respawn Entertainment have made a massive name for themselves in the industry at the same time as they've ushered in a new generation in multiplayer gaming - a new generation that's long overdue. The team at EA Games have made no secret about Titanfall being a game-changer, and based our tests with the final build of Titanfall in the real world with real, live servers for Xbox One and Windows, we'd have to agree. Titanfall quite simply takes every genre it belongs to out a whole new door.

LG G Pro 2 Review

LG G Pro 2 Review

With the LG G Pro 2 we’ve got what’s essentially a mix and upgrade to the LG G2 and the LG G Flex. This device is just as massive as the curved-display monster and it works with many of the same specifications of LG’s first hero device to work with back-facing buttons. This LTE-A device also works with back-facing buttons, and this time it’s humongous.

The LEGO Movie Videogame Review

The LEGO Movie Videogame Review

Supposing you’ve not dismissed this title as another tried-and-failed movie-to-game translation, you’ll be glad to know what The LEGO Movie Videogame is just about as smooth a delivery as we’ve ever experienced. Having both the previous (rather successful) Lego video games to live up to and the (wildly successful) Lego movie to live up to, this game isn't attempting to be a stand-alone game without movie influence. Instead, The LEGO Movie Videogame attempts to be an extension of the movie universe - and it does so with flying colors.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Review

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Review

If the idea of blood puke turns you off, I suggest you tap back immediately. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is not a game for children or the faint of heart - or stomach. While most reviewers will be coming in to this game a hardened fan of or having despised the first installment, we're coming in with fresh eyes. Here we've got a game where you control an ancient vampire in a modern-day (or even futuristic) world from a third-person perspective with enough cutscenes to choke an elephant.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Review

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Review

Lenovo has rolled out a variety of business-chic ThinkPad laptops over the past few months, as well as the wonderfully flexible Yoga 2 Pro. We've reviewed several of the company's devices in recent times, including the T440s, the X240, and the ThinkPad Yoga. While they're all fine machines, none of them live up to the sheer beauty and svelte thin profile that is the ThinkPad X1 Carbon. With this laptop comes an ultra-thin profile that tapers into an edge so thin, one is tempted to think it can slice bread, a high 2560 x 1440 resolution display that is aptly described as eye-candy, and the iconic ThinkPad design.
