NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1 Review or: why it’s still the best

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1 Review or: why it’s still the best

Today we're going to take a quick look at the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1 and discuss why this device is the best tablet that money can buy. When we had a look at the original NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet, it was very apparent that NVIDIA's tablet-making opponents were going to have a tough time competing with the features and overall quality of this top-notch piece of equipment. One year later and not one tablet can hold a flame to the SHIELD for its combination of quality and price. And now it's cheaper than it was before. What's going on here, you might ask?

Fallout 4 Review

Fallout 4 Review

America is an irradiated wasteland. Your environment in Fallout 4 is what Judge Dredd might refer to as the "Cursed Earth" part of North America. In it, your alternate reality is littered with extravagant industrial designs and the white bread attitudes of the 40's and 50's dashed into desolation and dreariness. You play the part of yourself in a third- or first-person perspective, tossed into a terrible, terrible place. You will take part in assuring the survival of the human race with a combination of attribute selections, the collecting of helpful materials, murdering mutants, and keeping your chin up!

Xbox One Elite Controller Review

Xbox One Elite Controller Review

It's been several weeks since I first laid hands on the Xbox One Elite Controller. I've come to the following conclusion: I've never reviewed a device that's so unnecessary and yet so completely worth the cash it costs at the same time. "Oh god," you might say, "I could have bought myself a whole month's worth of pizza with the money I spent on this controller." Not long after, you might find yourself saying "Oh my goodness I can't believe I ever used a controller other than this one... it's so good, and feels so right."

Razer Diamondback Review (2015)

Razer Diamondback Review (2015)

The Razer Diamondback ambidextrous mouse is one of the most well-rounded and beautiful mice I've ever used, in any category. While I'm still all about using a right-handed mouse - since I'm not really a lefty - this piece of equipment is shaped fine enough that I've not noticed a major difference. This is the return of the mouse that worked with the world's first optical gaming sensor - now back for its 4th iteration, the first update to the mouse since 2007.

Razer BlackWidow Ultimate 2016 Review

Razer BlackWidow Ultimate 2016 Review

A keyboard with a set of bright, blinking green lights on it isn't generally the first thing you think of when you think top-quality hardware. With Razer and the BlackWidow Ultimate 2016 edition keyboard, you get the unlikely combination of high-end pro-gamer ready hardware and bright, flashy, blinky green lights - in programmable combinations of blinks, no less. For those of you that own the 2014 edition of this keyboard and wouldn't try any other keyboard ever again - now's the time to trade up.

Razer Mamba Review (2015 edition)

Razer Mamba Review (2015 edition)

Along the the Mamba TE and the DeathAdder (Chroma), the Mamba (2015 Edition) is one of the most advanced gaming mice in the world. This device works with a laser sensor, a max speed of 210 IPS, acceleration of 50G, and an industry-leading 16,000 DPI sensor under the hood. This mouse now also has Chroma lighting - which means you can make it light up in a combination of colors along its left, right, and scroll wheel. This device is very, very similar to the mouse we called 2015's gaming master mouse in a review earlier this year.

Razer Mamba TE Review: 2015’s gaming master mouse

Razer Mamba TE Review: 2015’s gaming master mouse

The Razer Mamba TE is a Tournament Edition mouse made to compete with the highest-grade gaming mice in the world. This device continues the Razer tradition of making high-end super-sensitive mice by bringing a 16,000 DPI 5G laser sensor with 1,000 Hz Ultrapolling and 1 ms response time. That's no joke. This mouse runs a max of 210 inches per second and 50 G acceleration (if your arm can move that fast.) It also has lots of pretty colors.

BB-8 by Sphero Review: the best Star Wars toy ever made

The "BB-8 by Sphero" is a robot toy that combines the high-tech remote-control spherical fun of the original Sphero with the life force of the newest droid hero from Star Wars. This is the "ball droid" you've likely seen in the first, second, and/or third teaser trailer video for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This device incorporates remote control with a smartphone, augmented reality, and the ability to roll around and act entirely autonomously all around your house, recording data and exploring your hallways as he does so.

Final Fantasy VII for iOS Review

Final Fantasy VII for iOS Review

What do you remember about 1997? I remember a time before the iPhone or iPad, a period when the Internet boom was in full swing, and computer shows were a key part of my life. I also remember a video game that changed my opinion of role-playing games forever: Final Fantasy VII. Back then, the game was a monster hit and today, it lives on in my heart (and the hearts of millions around the globe) as one of the best RPGs to ever grace the PlayStation. Final Fantasy VII is without exaggeration, a masterpiece.

NVIDIA reveals the GeForce GTX 950 graphics card, a sweet spot for gamers not aiming to break the bank for competition-level play.

This card isn't meant to battle at 4K, but to keep your pocketbook from starting on fire as it delivers graphics on the higher end of 1080p. Still using a monitor you bought four years ago and feel comfortable with using today? Have a peek at the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Review

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Review

When we saw the NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X, we knew it was only a matter of time before the company brought heat to the slightly more pocket-friendly segment. For gamers that want top-of-the-line performance without dropping a thousand bucks on a GPU, there's the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti. This card takes the $650 spot in NVIDIA's lineup, carving out a place for itself with 6GB of GDDR5 RAM, 2816 CUDA cores, and and the same clock speeds as the king Titan X. With just 8% less CUDA goodness than the $1k X, you're getting this card for a whole lot cheaper.
