With a mighty roar, we wish a very happy holiday season to all this year!
It has been said that vengeance is a dish best served cold, but it also makes me wonder what Corsair is so angry about that requires vengeance, especially around and just after the holidays. Unless youre pwning n00bs with righteous fury, dishing out mayhem with a generous helping of vengeance on top. Then a decent headset is a must, regardless of the season.
Today we have on tap two headsets from Corsair, the Vengeance 1500 and 1100. The Vengeance lineup from Corsair extends into new keyboards and mice, and the headset products getting revamped for the new season.
The Vengeance 1500 is the top of the Corsair headset line, supplanting the HS1 of a few short years ago. Like the HS1, the Vengeance 1500 is a USB powered surround-sound monster headset with hefty 50mm drivers and revised USB drivers that now include Dolby 7.1 surround, and capable of 24-bit/96 KHz playback. The behind-the-ear Vengeance 1100 are a smaller hybrid USB/analog headset, with mere 40mm drivers, offering 16-bit/48 KHz playback in stereo.
There is a third Vengeance headset, the 1300, but it is an analog version of the 1500 and we don't anticipate them sounding much different than the 1500.
Other perks include braided cables, and a 2 year warranty, ensuring that the vengeance will last a good long time.
Let's read on and find out how these new Corsair Vengeance headsets work and play!
We review a new chassis from Corsair, it Obsidian 350D. It is the mini-me version of the new Obsidian 900D chassis. Not mid, not full, mini and this intended for small form factor PCs. Now the product might be tagged as mini, the details and features however are grand. Armed with a price much better then the 900D this might be the product a lot of you are on the lookout for.
Corsair Voyager Air review
We review the Voyager Air, it is a portable storage unit allows you to connect it towards USB 3.0 and Ethernet, but it also includes WIFI support and it actually comes on a 100 GB HDD model as well. This great looking device might just be what the doctor to move or stream your content from.
Corsair Obsidian 900D review
We test and review the all new Corsair Obsidian 900D chassis. Not, mid, not full heck, this is a super tower. Probably one of the biggest products you have seen to date. It is highly configurable has hidden options in every corner and a craftsmanship that will stun you.
Corsair H90 review
A test and review the Corsair H90 liquid cooler. The Hydro Series H90 is Corsairs first 140mm Liquid Cooling solution that is bound to draw some impressive heat from your processor.
