Cooler Master Masterpulse Pro USB Gaming Headset Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2016-10-25 read/post comments()

Since the product can also operate without extra software, we could use the MasterPulse Pro headset right away, while the remote functions are easy to work with. Cooler Master advertises Bass FX with this model and this function can be simply enabled by removing the plastic side panels; the change in bass strength is quite subtle and in order to feel a clear difference we would recommend to remove the panels while listening to the specific audio content (while wearing the headset). Right after the removal of the panels, the bass will feel a little deeper than before, but not over-the-top as we have seen with other gaming headsets, as the Razer Tiamat 2.2. read more

Corsair M65 Pro RGB Mouse and MM800 RGB Polaris Mouse Pad Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2016-10-19 read/post comments()

We have tested M65 Pro on both the MM800 and our trusty ModMyMachine aluminum pad along with the Ghost in Shell, Mafia III, Shadow Warrior, Duke 3D 20th Anniversary World Tour and CS: GO titles: thanks to the rubberized coating and ergonomic side panels, the mouse felt very comfortable, even after two hours of continuous usage. The updated sensor works well on many surfaces, while the MM800 pad and its low friction micro-textured surface allowed us to have more precise movements during office work, but also photo and video editing. The re-positioned buttons on the left panel of the M65 Pro are more accessible now to the thumb, while the DPI values up to 12K should satisfy even gamers which… read more

Others/Miscelleneous by stefan @ 2016-10-12 read/post comments()

This second case from Noreve we took a look at is being offered with the same high quality we have been expecting from them and was meant especially for people who want to get faster access to the touch screen interface, where with the Tradition – 21172T model there was a delay in access because of the top cover. The product is offered in eight finishing types, each with its own colors and may require some extra days of manual labor, depending on the complexity. read more

Mafia III Game Review

Others/Miscelleneous by stefan @ 2016-10-10 read/post comments()

Mafia III is a very ambitious project from Hangar 13 and has required quite a bit of work to make it happen and the open-world environment is great! There are of course bugs which you will encounter if you mainly wander off and navigate through the rich environment, meaning that the game was mainly thought for you to follow the story line and not concentrate on other activities. In most of the situations, the game details are great, the story is being told in a unique way like a documentary and we also did like the fact that you can have other allies in order to take down the Italian mob which has betrayed the main character. The driving experience… read more
