Consoles, Games & Controllers tested & reviewed
Over the last 12 months we have had the pleasure of reviewing two of Buffalo’s devices the MiniStation Air 2 and their DriveStation Quad and this month we have taken a look at their new HDV-SA series DriveStation Media Hard Drive. You can buy the HDV-SA series in three sizes 1TB, 2TB and 3TB so it all depends on how extensive you want to make your media library while allowing you to clear up space on your TV’s, Recorders and PCs.
We had the pleasure of testing the BrydgeAir Keyboard with the iPad Air 2, ideal if you type a lot on your iPad and want to transform it into a mini netbook. The Keyboard is not going to win any awards for being light it is beautiful designed from aluminium and weighs 520g / 1.15lb but this isn’t a cheap piece of tat it is a high quality tactile keyboard, user tip if you are using it as a laptop do not put it on bare legs as it is super cold.
Pardon the pun but this little device has been a complete ‘Gaems’ changer for me and is one of my favourite items I have reviewed for GadgetHead as I use it near on every day. When I get home from work one of my favourite ways to unwind is to get on the Xbox One and have a few games of Fifa or Fallout, previously however I could only play on the main TV in the living room which inevitably led to a few altercations with the other half!
Yes! 16-bit gaming is back. Go back in time by playing Nintendo classics like Super Mario Kart and Donkey Kong. The Super Nintendo Entertainment System features the original design and even feels like the ‘90s home console but in a cute mini form (so your partner can’t even complain about another console cluttering up the place). It comes with fully loaded with 21 games, two wired retro Super NES controllers and a new Rewind feature that lets you rewind up to five minutes of gameplay from your last save, and each game can save up to four suspend points.
The Rotating Folio for Case Logic is a moulded polycarbonate hard shell case that is compatible for the 9.7" iPad Pro and iPad Air 2.
The cool thing about the Rotating Folio is, as the name suggests, that it rotates 360°, making it easy to use in the both portrait and landscape orientation. The case is tactile, with grip on its outer layer to keep your iPad safe, and a soft, suede-like interior to protect it from daily wear and tear.
My first impression of this mouse was how impressive the packaging was, it showcases that this mouse is different from the start. It comes with everything you need including its own little carry case for the commute. We love it when something has the term “Swedish design” in its description as it normally means it is creative in its design and takes a deviated step away from the traditional.
The Maxwell Sleeve aims to provide a compact but highly protective case for your MacBook, available in four bold and colourful designs, as well as Waxed Canvas and Black Ballistics Nylon.
The Maxwell comes in three MacBook sizes - 15”, 13” and 12”, in either a vertical or horizontal orientation. A strap can be added during purchase for an extra $27/£22.
The HyperX Cloud Stinger is a lightweight headset for gamers, at 275 grams, it’s super comfortable on your head and neck for long periods of time. Each ear cups rotates in a 90-degree angle for a precise fit and use HyperX signature memory foam padding that helps reduce external noise and increases comfort.
