Built for the battlefield, the HyperX Alloy Elite is loaded with fast, accurate, and comfortable Cherry MX Brown switches and a durable steel frame. RGB backlit keys and a brilliant 18-LED light bar keep you fragging away long into the night. It’s also equipped to meet your multimedia needs with dedicated media buttons, USB 2.0, Game Mode, anti-ghosting, and N-Key rollover.
Xbox and PC gamers can get the full feel of car racing with this force-feedback wheel, gearshift and pedal set from Logitech. (PlayStation 4 racers can check out the very similar Logitech G29 wheel.) The game navigation buttons are better integrated into the steering wheel, compared to Logitech’s older versions, while the black anodized metal centerpiece and the real leather steering wheel cover give it a sleek and refined racing look.
If you want a more tactile keyboard than your standard rubber membrane but don’t want to shell out $100 or more for a full mechanical, the Razer Ornata is a great alternative. This keyboard features Razer’s signature Chroma RBG backlighting, a leatherette wrist pad, and a unique mecha-membrane design which combines the tactile feel of mechanical key switches with a soft rubber membrane.
Advances in battery tech and Bluetooth mean wireless headphones don't always carry a hefty price tag anymore. Among the best of the bunch are these lightweight stereo headphones from Jabra, which give up to eight hours of audio on their rechargeable batteries. They also come with a cord so they can be used when the batteries run out, or on airplane flights.
With gaming laptops, you’re also able to customize what features and specifications are important to you and line it up with a preferred price-point. You can choose a specific screen size (we like 15″ and up), processors (grab a 3.0 Ghz or higher), video card (again, the NVIDIA GTX series is top-of-the-line right now), and a hard drive capacity to your liking (stick with at least 500GB and with some portion of it to be a solid-state drive, please). The HP Omen is a top laptop pick recommended by not only use but those online gaming mags as well — for a reason.
This is a chair that is specifically designed for those who work day-to-day with technology as the Gesture comes with ergonomic 8-hour support (we know, game sessions go longer than that!). The chair is quick to make adjustments and molds to the user, no matter the body type. People have various preferences in the way that they sit, but what makes the Gestures so great is the type of person you are isn’t really relative as it comes with great versatility. If you sit for long hours a day whether playing online games or for work, the Steelcase Gesture comes in as premium and high-end. In our opinion however, it is worth the price if you want to be free of that well-being, long-term posture and physical health guilt.
Similar to the G900 Chaos Spectrum, the G402 Hyperion Fury is another high-speed mouse and one of our favorite picks as the best gaming gear out there. This mouse contains optical sensor technology and combines it with Logitech’s custom built Fusion Engine hybrid sensor that will track speeds up to 500 IPS. Though this high-tech mouse is great for gaming, it is often highly regarded as a multi-use product. The Hyperion Fury is getting high praise for its built-in accelerometer and gyro which augments the capabilities of the optical sensor. If the optical sensor fails to produce due to the mouse’s high speed, this feature allows the mouse to make up time just in case.

It's been a while since I reviewed an LG smartphone and the new LG V40 ThinQ is a good one to break that dry streak. This phone features 5 built-in cameras if you can believe that! Why does anyone need 5 cameras on their phone? Stay tuned for my review coming soon. Please follow The Gadgeteer or subscribe to our newsletter so you won't miss my review. (11/21)
The Razer Kraken is an icon in the world of gaming headsets and remains one of the best pairs for the money thanks to its comfortable oversized ear cups, aluminum frame, beefy 50mm drivers, retractable microphone, and compatibility across all gaming systems. The upgrade pick, the Kraken Chroma 7.1 V2, even boasts virtual surround sound, and it’s now on sale at the same price as the standard Kraken Pro V2.
When it comes to actually choosing which exact version of the Corsair One is best, we recommend sticking with a few necessities (feel free to browse around what they offer to see which price-tag is justified for your budget). Keep in mind the following: 16GB of RAM, at least an i7 processor with 3.0 Ghz+, as much hard drive memory as you need (1 TB should suffice, and we do recommend a portion being solid-state drive at that), and a video card to hold it all together (something like an NVIDIA GTX). The Corsair One is going to keep you going for not only the present but for many years to come, even as the demand games ask for better internal builds of PC’s continues as well since it’s currently ahead of the curve.
