AVADirect wasn’t really a systems builder on our radar until late last year when we reviewed their Avant Mini Cube Gaming PC. After extensive testing, we found that the system was well configured, well built, and well priced, quickly propelling AVADirect to the top as one of our favorite custom PC builders.
Recently, AVADirect sent us another one of the systems in their lineup, the AVADirect X370 Quiet Gaming PC, which as its name implies is AVADirect’s quiet gaming PC offering based on AMD’s X370 Ryzen platform.AVADirect Quiet Gaming PC Specs Desktop AVADirect X370 Quiet Gaming PC Case Phanteks Eclipse P400S CPU AMD [...]

Several weeks ago, we were able to get our hands on Razer’s new wired ambidextrous eSports grade gaming mouse, the Razer Lancehead Tournament Edition, which we were quite impressed with.

Along with the Lancehead TE, Razer also launched the Razer Lancehead, which we’ll be reviewing today. The main difference between the [...]
When it boils down to it, one of the most important components of your new gaming PC is the keyboard. Aside from the mouse, the keyboard, and maybe a gaming controller there’s literally nothing else that translates what you want to do to the PC. Unless you invest mind control… or something.
Over the past few years, one of the most popular categories of gaming keyboards have been the mechanical gaming keyboards. Unlike the cheap, soft and mushy rubber dome keyboards, mechanical gaming keyboards offer a better feel, more consistent actuation, better overall performance, and better reliability.
That said, with the increased popularity of mechanical [...]

If you look at Razer’s gaming mouse lineup today, they have a little bit of something for everyone, but one area that’s been lacking is a premium ambidextrous gaming mouse offering. While Razer does offer the back to basics Abyssus gaming mouse which features an ambidextrous design, it’s a relatively lower end gaming mouse that lacks some of the cool bells and whistles you’d find on Razer’s more premium products such as the DeathAdder Elite.
To address this market, Razer recently launched the Lancehead Tournament Edition, which we’ll be reviewing today. The Razer Lancehead TE is a premium gaming mouse [...]

Shortly after revealing Windows 10 S and the Surface Laptop, Microsoft is planning to “show the world what’s next”, this time in Shanghai.
The theme of this event is unclear. The barren teaser site starkly features an image of Shanghai city and #MicrosoftEvent banner.
Microsoft fans have their fingers crossed for an updated Surface Pro. Despite an excellent quarter, Microsoft saw a 26% dip in Surface revenue. A refresh on the Surface Pro 4 is desperately needed, and a new Surface Book can’t hurt either. Many are also holding out on the possibility of a Surface Phone.
The event is just three weeks away, so more information should [...]
