Review: Eurocom Electra 3 gaming laptop

by Blogger on ‎03-21-2015 11:51 AM - last edited on ‎03-23-2015 10:51 AM by Blog Editor in Chief



Lately I’ve been on a bit of a kick with gaming laptops. They’ve really been coming in to their own as of late. There are so many great options and people’s interest in having enough PC muscle to game, in a laptop form factor is definitely increasing. For most people something like an Ultrabook or Chromebook is basic enough to get work done day to day, but when you want to do multimedia creation, or enjoy the latest PC games without having to sacrifice on graphics or performance, a gaming PC is tough to beat. If you can get the power of a gaming PC with the mobility of a laptop you’ll have something that has been the dream of many gamers for years. These days it’s not that farfetched and you have a few options. The latest model I’ve looked at is the Electra 3 from Eurocom. I’ve been a big fan of Eurocom’s laptops in the past so I was curious if this latest model would continue their winning streak.

Whether you're on vacation or just enjoying the heck out of that extra day off during a long weekend, having extra time to enjoy the company of your family is always a great thing. Here are some ideas that'll keep you and the kids entertained, both indoors and outside.




Getting the right new accessory for your desktop PC can transform your computing experience in surprising ways. The best part is how much variety there is in terms of sizes, prices, and functionality that you can be sure to find one to suit anybody, and they can fit under the tree, in a stocking, or wherever, making them great gifts this holiday. When picking out a gift you often want to get something the person will love but might not have got for themselves. That’s what makes PC accessories so perfect. People don’t often think of upgrading or getting something extra fancy. More often than not they pick up accessories out of necessity. This lets you step in and pick something beyond what they merely need, and get something that goes that extra mile to become something they’ll love in ways they never even considered.

To give you a hand, I’ve been busy playing the hottest gaming products this year, and have some suggestions to help you out. Whether your loved one enjoys playing on Xbox, PlayStation, or Nintendo platforms, or is getting into gaming for the first time, here are my top picks for holiday gaming gifts!


Review Skylanders Trap Team Tablet Edition

by Blogger on ‎12-10-2014 11:01 AM - last edited on ‎12-12-2014 01:31 PM by Blog Editor in Chief



Tablet versions of PC or console games usually feel like forced and diluted versions of the original. The popular franchise Skylanders attempts to break the mold with their full-featured tablet edition designed for iPads and some Android tablets. The Skylanders Trap Team tablet edition doesn’t just aim to provide a pale copy of the version available on PC and popular consoles, it really makes the best use of the tablet’s power and portability to create an engaging and well-executed experience that may actually be preferred by some users. 



Review: Logitech ORION Spark Gaming Keyboard

by Blogger on ‎12-03-2014 02:09 PM - last edited on ‎01-16-2015 04:02 PM by Blog Editor in Chief



Gaming keyboards are a very interesting category. On one hand they’re keyboards, so you don’t want some things to be somewhat standardized in order to give you versatility, and have it conform to your expectations. On the other hand you want it to have high performance and deliver unique and powerful features to help you take your gaming to the next level. This is a balancing act that Logitech has a long history in managing with many PC gaming accessories throughout the years. I had the opportunity to spend some time with their latest offering – the G910 Orion Spark mechanical gaming keyboard to see if it could live up to Logitech’s strong pedigree in this department.

Yesterday among all the big announcements coming out of Gamescom, we learned about two new Xbox One bundles that would be available in Canada: The Sunset Overdrive Special Edition Bundle, and the Limited Edition Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Bundle. With both of these hitting shelves in time for the holiday season, gamers now have more choice than ever when shopping for an Xbox One.

Skullcandy Gaming Headsets Review - They have style but do they have quality?

by Guest Blogger on ‎05-30-2014 07:51 PM - last edited on ‎09-04-2014 12:00 PM by Blog Editor in Chief



Skullcandy headphones have been a staple of my gaming life for quite some time now. I’ve been using the Skull Crushers for easily 5 years now. They have always offered good sound and cool design for a decent price. Since they acquired Astro Gaming, it was only a matter of time before Skullcandy made the step to gaming headsets and with the SLYR, the PLYR 2 and the PLYR 1 they are offering good headsets at competitive prices.

When I last wrote about a TV, I reviewed the 70-inch Sharp LED Smart TV, and couldn’t have been happier with the experience. It, like other smart TVs in its class, bridged the gap between standard picture monitor and all-out hanging a computer on your wall. With sharp colors, a Smart HUB for social media and streaming and a browser for all your surfing needs, what more could anyone really ask for?  Well, for starters, an easier way to navigate through all the aforementioned features.  It seems that little problem is now solved in the form of the Microsoft All-in-One Media Keyboard.


The Razer BlackWidow Ultimate gaming keyboard earns its name.

When it comes to gear for gamers, it can be tricky to pick out the best stuff. There are a lot of claims of exciting features, and flashy designs but you don’t always know how useful those features are going to be and flashy designs aren’t indicative of quality. One of my favorite brands in this area is Razer, who tends to make their PC gaming accessories with relatively subtle and understated looks but with a focus on precise and high performance functionality. Razer’s original BlackWidow has for a long time been one of those super-popular products that others in the field are compared against. They basically pioneered mechanical gaming keyboards in fact. Not to rest on their laurels, Razer presents an updated BlackWidow Ultimate keyboard which, on the outside retains Razer’s classic looks, but has some significant changes beneath the surface making it one of the best keyboards out there for the PC gaming enthusiast.


Logitech G-Series PC gaming accessory roundup

by Blogger on ‎02-02-2014 01:16 PM - last edited on ‎03-13-2014 10:48 AM by Blog Editor in Chief



Since I was a kid, some of the best PC gaming accessories have come from Logitech. It seems like they’ve always taken PC gaming seriously. I’ve been spending some time trying out the different accessories in Logitech’s G-Series lineup of PC hardware build specifically with gamers in mind. It is certainly a broad product range, with options for those on a budget, those looking for a premium experience, and everyone in between. Across the board no matter which G-Series accessory I look at it was interesting to see a very consistent focus on an edgy ‘gamer’ style, and core features gearing this stuff ideally for gaming in mind.

Let me say up front, you don’t have to be a daily devotee of downward dog, or a lean mean boot camp machine to be concerned about being healthy. We’d all like to make sure we’re in decent shape, eating well, and being active. There's some great new products that will help you do that. Whether for you, or to give as gifts, here are some top picks.
