G.Skill Ripjaws SR910

G.Skill Ripjaws SR910 review: Fancy features don't always make for a worthwhile headset

G.Skill's debut headset promises "real" 7.1 surround sound, but it's let down by weak drivers and tinny sound.

PCWorld Show Episode 24: Windows 10 Anniversary Update, AMD's crazy GPU, and Tim Sweeney

Mark, Jon, and Gordon talk Windows 10's big update, AMD's Solid State Graphics Tech, and whether Microsoft is out to kill Steam on Windows.

HyperX Cloud Revolver

HyperX Cloud Revolver review: New look, new sound, higher price

Despite Kingston's efforts to put out an even better Cloud headset, there’s just not much reason to buy the Revolver over the original HyperX Cloud or Cloud II.

Microsoft: Windows 10's free upgrade absolutely, positively ends today

Don't believe any rumors that says Microsoft is going to extend the free upgrade period for Windows 10. This is straight from the horse's mouth.

PDP AG9

PDP Afterglow AG 9 review: This sub-$100 wireless headset has a lot going for it

The PDP Afterglow AG 9 is the latest headset to promise wireless freedom for under $100—but you won't get everything you could possibly want.

HP Chromebook 13 review: Google's Pixel has a rival for best Chromebook ever

HP's Chromebook 13 satisfies the corporate user's demand for beauty and power, and it does so for less money than Google's flagship. Battery life is the only question mark.

Tech shines at new Vikings stadium

Wireless coverage, mobile apps, RFID and virtual reality will play a big part at the new US Bank Stadium, where the Minnesota Vikings will play football starting this season.

Logitech G933

Logitech G933 review: This wireless headset is so good, you can skip its high-end competition

The Logitech G933 would be a good buy at its list price of $200. At its pretty-much-permanent sale price of $150 to $180, it's probably the best mix of performance and value in a wireless headset right now.

Razer Man O' War

Razer Man O' War review: This pillowy headset is almost as mighty as its name

Razer's massive wireless headset boasts an amazing soundstage, incredible battery life, and a fantastic microphone, but you will need to fiddle with its EQ settings to get the most from it.

Windows 7 PCs with free OS upgrade are still available, for now

PC makers HP, Lenovo and Dell have stopped selling PCs with home editions of Windows 7. However, they are still selling PCs with Windows 7 Professional that can be upgraded to Windows 10 Pro for free.

Corsair Void Wireless

Corsair Void Wireless review: This headset is your best bet if you must go wireless

Corsair's back with another inexpensive wireless headset, and it's a lot better than the H2100.

Polk Striker Pro P1

Polk Striker Pro P1 review: Strong headphones, subpar headset

The Polk Striker Pro P1 makes for an excellent pair of headphones, but fails to compete on the headset front with its similarly priced peers.

space whale

This week in games: Batman bows to Twitch, Hideo Kojima shows off space whales

Plus: A developer's game is delayed because the publisher forgot to hit the "Release" button on Steam. It's kind of adorable, really. This is gaming news for July 25 - 29.
