Review: The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro is an excellent headset for PS5

Image
I think this will be my new main headset going forward on PS5 and PC. Razer is well accustomed to making headsets at this point. The company develops a slew of gaming peripherals for console and PC, with its audio devices being standout accessories. I've had a few different variations of the Razer Kraken over the years, and even wrote our Razer Kraken X review (spoiler, it's a fantastic budget headset), but I haven't been able to try any of Razer's wireless options until today. The BlackShark V2 Pro definitely lives up to its $180 price tag. Because the PS5 just launched, I decided to primarily test these out on that console. Though it's clearly more geared towards PC users, the BlackShark V2 Pro handles PS5 audio just fine, and I'd even say probably as good as Sony's own Pulse 3D wireless headset . At a glance Razer BlackShark V2 Pro Bottom line: The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro is one of the best headsets I've ever had the pleasure to review. Its

Xiaomi Mi QLED TV 4K 55 review: Setting a new standard for premium TVs

Image
Xiaomi's first QLED TV delivers great picture quality and costs significantly less than Samsung. To say that Xiaomi has turned the TV segment on its head in India would be an understatement. The brand sold over five million TVs in the country following its entry into the category back in February 2018, and it has been the number one smart TV brand for ten consecutive quarters. Much like its phone business, Xiaomi's momentum with the Mi TV comes from value-focused offerings. With its TVs starting off as low as ₹14,499 ($196), Xiaomi has lowered the bar to entry for those looking to pick up a smart TV in India. While it dominates the budget segment, Xiaomi doesn't really have a premium option to go up against the likes of Samsung, LG, Sony, OnePlus, and others. The manufacturer is now fixing that with the launch of its first QLED TV, the Mi QLED TV 4K 55. The 55-inch TV is now available in India for ₹54,999 ($745), and Xiaomi is significantly undercutting Samsung here. X

Corsair Dark Core RGB Pro review: My new favorite gaming mouse

Image
Corsair's latest wireless gaming mouse ticks all the right boxes. Corsair covers the entire gamut of gaming accessories, with its recent K100 RGB keyboard setting a new standard for gaming keyboards. Today, I'm taking a look at another recent entrant that has made a tangible difference to my gaming setup: the Dark Core RGB Pro gaming mouse. There's no shortage of gaming mice, and the Dark Core RGB Pro holds its own against the best that Razer and Logitech have to offer right now. The mouse has Corsair's Slipstream tech for sub-1ms wireless latency over 2.4GHz, a PixArt sensor that goes up to 18,000 DPI, battery life of over 30 hours, and USB-C connectivity. In short, the Dark Core RGB Pro has everything you're looking for in a wireless gaming mouse. I've used the mouse for a few months now, and here's what makes it a great option.

Review: The Google Pixel 4a 5G is great, but prices itself into a corner

Image
How much do you really want 5G? Ever since the Pixel 3a was first announced for $399, Google has held a prominent position in the low-cost market for its affordable phones with outsized camera performance. The A series has consistently made the appropriate sacrifices necessary to bring prices down and even improved upon the shortcomings of the company's higher-end lineup — most notably, in its battery life. After considerable delays, the subsequent Pixel 4a repeated the 3a's success with even better camera performance, a larger screen signifying Google's move over to hole punch camera cutouts , and an even better value at just $350. Those looking for a decidedly higher-end phone can turn to the Pixel 5 for double the price, while the upcoming Pixel 4a 5G splits the difference, both in terms of price and hardware accoutrements. It isn't that there isn't a lot to say about the Pixel 4a 5G; it's more that most of it has already been said in our reviews o
