PlayStation 5 Review – Delightful Dual Sense

Logitech G102 Lightsync Review – Great bang for buck

The Logitech G102 Lightsync is a sturdy entry-level mouse perfect for gamers looking for a long-term purchase on a budget.

Logitech G733 Lightspeed Review – Wirelessly Limited

The Logitech G733 Lightspeed is genuinely a trendy-looking headset. The colour options are nice-to-have and its headband plus head strap design, coupled with soft memory foam pads, make it exceptionally comfortable when resting. The most fundamental issue with the G733 Lightspeed lies with how shallow the cups are. My ears permanently connected with the inside of the cups, which resulted in immense discomfort after a few hours with it. The mic is admirable, but nothing to write home about, while the surround sound virtualisation is on-par with the best Logitech has to offer. Ultimately the Logitech G733 Lightspeed has enough to keep it from falling to the wayside, but no magic. It is wireless only, which limits the headset to PC, MacOS and PS4. It is the third headset featuring the Blue VO!CE technology, which is a nice plus. The challenge, however, is figuring out exactly who the headset is for? With a suggested retail price of $129, it is baffling to imagine it competing with the similarly priced and far superior Logitech G Pro X.

Rapoo VH510 Review – Decent, but gaudy, budget headset

The Rapoo VH510 is a 7.1 surround sound USB-only gaming headset meant for instant plug-and-play. It is flashy, big, and may not be everyone's cup of tea.
