While its not my favorite handheld, its very close and I find myself using it more and more the longer I have it. I'd definitely suggest buying one or two at the current price because they will not be in production forever. There are some flaws with the system but it really gives us

Arctis 3 Console Edition Wired Gaming Headset [Review] (steelseries)

Arctis 3 (steelseries) Wired Console Edition Gaming Headset MSRP: $69.99 Price Paid: $39.99* @Amazon.com Devices Tested On: Xbox Series S, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, MacBook Pro, PC https://steelseries.com/gaming-headsets/arctis-3-console-edition?color=white *Reviewed for value at $39.99 pricepoint! I would not recommend these at anything above $40-$50 range at this point though. I recently reviewed the Arctis 1 headset (5/10 score) which cost $49.99 and was not pleased with the results. This headset is better in most categories.  I like to Score reviews 0-100 or 0-10 with 70/100 and 7/10 being barely average.  I Disagree With Every Statement Here & These Were Made at MSRP Link To Arctis 1 Review Overall Score 7/10 ( Barely Average) The Good 🔥Overall Sound quality is good! 🔥Mid-Range Sounds Are Good  🔥Sound Clarity Is Good The Bad 👎Microphone is Below Average! 👎Uncomfortable while wearing eyeglasses! 👎Overall Design & Comfort Is Not Good! 👎MS

Review: Retro-Bit Tribute N64 USB Controller

Retro-Bit Tribute N64 USB Controller Review  Overall Score: 8.5/10 I was never a huge fan of the Nintendo 64 Controller although I liked certain aspects of it and I was a big fan of the N64.  The Retro-Bit Tribute N64 USB controller had been sitting in my eBay watchlist for a while and decided to go ahead and buy it for $18.95 (Free Shipping) on a whim to test out on Mac, PC, and Nintendo Switch.  The MSRP for the controller is $24.99. Photos of mine in this review are unedited and straight off the camera as is.  The Good  A more modern design that's easier to use than the original N64 controller depending on your preferences.  Large thumb-stick.  Rumble Pak compatible.  Layout is close enough to the original that gameplay with it feels authentic.  Two Z buttons (one can easily be programmed for a new function.  Lightweight But Sturdy.  Controller immediately recognized by OSX, Windows 10 or Nintendo Switch. The Bad:  The controller is very small and almost cramped for

Retroid Pocket 2 vs Anbernic RG351P: Definitive Analysis

The Retroid Pocket 2 and Anbernic RG351P have been out long enough for me to give both extensive time and a definitive opinion of both. When I score devices,  I keep price and $ for $ value always in mind so I no longer use price as a category. The RP2 is slightly cheaper than the RG351P. The 351P has more out of the box appeal but the RP2 catches up to it in many areas if you are willing to put in some work. If you are a complete beginner to these kind of devices,  the 351P may suit you a little better.  I originally scored the RP2 a 8.5/10 and the 351P an 8/10. Community support and new developments during the first 6 months to a year of any new open source style system definitely has some big effects... Going Head 2 Head:  Retroid Pocket 2 = 8.5/10  RG351P = 7.4/10 What really drags the 351P down is the screen size, lack of built in WiFi and battery performance. If it weren't for those three issues it might have been a LOT better.  SCREEN   Retroid Pocket
