Logitech G305 review: A LIGHTSPEED gaming mouse for the mainstream

Logitech G305 review: A LIGHTSPEED gaming mouse for the mainstream

I think it’s safe to say that Logitech has been crafting some really solid gaming mice lately. Back in March, I reviewed the G703 and G903 gaming mice, which both come with all the bells and whistles: RGB lighting, Powerplay support, HERO sensors, and LIGHTSPEED technology. I found them to be excellent mice, and I said at the time that they made the best argument yet for ditching your wired gaming mouse. With both of them, however, there was one big hang up: Price.

Molecule Mattress Review: Tech for Health

Molecule Mattress Review: Tech for Health

We are surrounded by technology throughout our waking hours. In fact, some of them, through devious intention or accidental side effect, seem to be designed to keep us awake. There has been a recent surge of interest in technologies that will help us stay fit but, again, they put more emphasis on being active and awake.

Very few focus on taking advantage of science and technology to give our bodies the boost they need during sleeping hours. One of those few is Molecule, a new startup that is breaking into the mattress market with a Mattress that will help you keep your cool and keep you sleeping soundly.

Tour the LEGO Solo movie Millennium Falcon with Lando (and SlashGear)

Tour the LEGO Solo movie Millennium Falcon with Lando (and SlashGear)

The newest Millennium Falcon LEGO set is here, and we're going down its hallways in detail. This is the Falcon as it existed in one of its earliest forms - the earliest we've yet seen it. This was back when Lando Calrissian owned the ship and the ship - man - it was clean. So clean it almost breaks the "used future" Science Fiction George Lucas originally pierced our collective consciousness with in A New Hope.

At only $99.99, the BackBeat GO 600 are fairly inexpensive, but how do they compare to other budget headphones?

The Edge Desk Review

The Edge Desk Review

Over the past couple of weeks I've worked almost exclusively on The Edge Desk. This desk offers a unique way to work with a new way to sit. Instead of focusing all of my weight on my bottom and my lower back, The Edge Desk aims to spread that pressure to my legs and knees. The way I sit now is different from any position I've ever worked in before.

Lenovo Mirage Camera Review: VR photography for dummies

Lenovo Mirage Camera Review: VR photography for dummies

Virtual reality is gaining steam, but what if you want to create content for the new headsets, not just consume it? That's where Lenovo's Mirage Camera comes in. Launching today alongside the Mirage Solo standalone VR headset, it's a twin-sensor camera designed to capture 3D photos and video without demanding professional videographer credentials first. That's a pretty big promise for a gadget under $300.

Lenovo Mirage Solo Review: Standalone Daydream VR with caveats

Lenovo Mirage Solo Review: Standalone Daydream VR with caveats

The Lenovo Mirage Solo is making a splash landing in the virtual reality headset market, and it's causing waves both in mobile and traditional VR. One of the small handful of truly standalone headsets, it doesn't demand you slot in your smartphone or plug into a gaming PC. Instead, Lenovo and Google are leveraging smartphone tech and some mighty clever inside-out tracking to give the Mirage Solo its edge - and justify its $400 price tag.

Huawei P20 Pro Review: The best sort of excess

Huawei P20 Pro Review: The best sort of excess

What with all the attention the Huawei P20 Pro has captured lately, you'd think the company would be having a good year. Then again, high-profile criticism by the US government hasn't exactly done wonders for the Chinese phone-maker's sales, nor its scuppered carrier deals. If there's one thing the P20 Pro demonstrates, however, it's that while Huawei may lack trust from some quarters, it certainly isn't short on imagination.

iPad Review 2018: This one’s for my kids

iPad Review 2018: This one’s for my kids

This newest iteration of the iPad isn't made for the people who buy a new iPad each time Apple makes one available. Instead, the iPad we're reviewing here today is the Cupertino company's continuation of a design that's already been proven to work. People that've never owned an iPad, people that haven't bought a new iPad for a half-decade, and people looking to buy iPads for schools - this is the iPad for you. I'm a parent, and it turns out this iPad is for my children and me, too.

Logitech G513 Review: A great (but expensive) keyboard for the RGB-obsessed

Logitech G513 Review: A great (but expensive) keyboard for the RGB-obsessed

If you’re looking for an RGB mechanical keyboard, there are plenty out there to choose from. Many gaming keyboards these days have started using mechanical switches instead of membrane ones, and while most of those seem to use some kind of Cherry MX switches, Logitech has taken things one step further by developing its own switch, dubbed Romer-G. These switches feature in the Logitech G513 Keyboard, the more expensive successor to the G413, and in fact they now come in two different varieties: tactile and linear. How does Romer-G hold up, though? Beyond that, is the G513 a gaming keyboard worth its somewhat high asking price?

Audeara A-01 headphones review

Audeara A-01 headphones review

Headphones are a dime a plenty, many of them promising the best audio your ears will have the pleasure to ever hear. All of them, however, make one fatal assumption: that we all hear perfectly and in the same way. From a business standpoint, it is understandable. Fine-tuning audio equipment to unique individual capabilities puts a heavy burden on companies.

Last year, Australian startup Audeara came up with an alternative: let the users tune their headphones themselves. And thus the Audeara A-01 rose from the crowdfunding ocean and we put it on our ears to hear that promise come to life.

Brainwavz B400 Quad Balanced Armature Earphones Review

Brainwavz B400 Quad Balanced Armature Earphones Review

In-ear buds, like those that come with almost every smartphone, are so small it's almost too easy to take them for granted. After all, how much can you cram into such a cramped space to produce good-quality audio? Just enough, if you ask audio accessory maker Brainwavz. Its latest B400 in-ear monitors is the same size as your average IEM but packs four balanced armature drivers in each earbud, promising higher-quality sound than those same average IEMs. At least that's the theory, so we plug a pair in to test it in practice.
