Netbook Gaming On The Samsung NC10

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

My Samsung NC10 has been neglected for a few weeks, I bought it to use as a dedicated linux computer for programming and tinkering with open source consoles. However recently I’ve had a bit of an old-school gaming itch and have been grabbing fistfulls of CDs from my loft to see what I can get […]

Razer Sphex “Gaming Surface” Review

Monday, June 29th, 2009

Just in case you’re wondering exactly what a “gaming surface” is, it’s a fancy term for gaming mouse-mat. No mouse mat could be more deserving of such a fancy term than the Sphex, however.

Logitech G19 Keyboard Review

Thursday, June 18th, 2009

Ever since the tragic-looking G11 which I couldn’t even muster the effort to shrug at, Logitech have been soldiering on, taking strictly evolutionary steps in an apparent effort to make a keyboard, the functionality of which could replace your computer entirely.

SteelSeries “Iron Lady” Ikari Laser Mouse

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008

If you frequent Gadgetoid you may remember my look at the SteelSeries Ikari Laser Mouse, it’s a killer mouse (not in the “it has fangs and eats people” sense) and is still my day-to-day mouse both at home and work. Never one to give up the chance of doubling up on SteelSeries mouse goodness to […]

Friday, December 12th, 2008

With OLED displays becoming more and more prevalent and being exceptionally good at integrating seamlessly into devices and, well, looking good.
