Google Home Review

Speedlink QUINOX Pro USB Gamepad Review

Speedlink QUINOX Pro USB Gamepad Review

For years gamepads for PCs were not a thing, now it seems, they have caught up with and even overtake the complex stylings of the console competition.

This is a comfortable gamepad, with reconfiguration to the hilt and a price that doesn’t upset….

Sennheiser PXC 480 Review

Sennheiser PXC 480 Review

Last year, I fell in love with the Sennheiser HD650 with the Apogee groove amplifier. It broke my heart when I had to hand them back, but I have never forgotten them and I pine for them often.

Plus, they have…

Speedlink Ultor Review

Speedlink Ultor Review

Speedlink have sent over their latest Ultor Mechanical Gaming Keyboard and a keyboard that can be considered as a portable offering.

This mechanical keyboard has an impressive metallic red chassis buried under its keys. There are only small portions of the chassis peeking out in various places as Speedlink have cut down on any excess to make a keyboard truly too…

There is obviously going to be comparisons drawn between these and the much-publicised Airpods, and whilst they are certainly similar in concept, the execution is much different. I personally prefer the noise…
