LG C2 OLED TV

Nice spot on premium TV

Positives

  • Cool new design

  • Enhanced peak brightness

  • Excellent black levels

  • Solid color accuracy and color gamut

  • Great for gamers

Negatives

  • Some artifacts peak brightness

  • Complex Smart TV System

No one thought LG would roll over and allow Samsung to step in QD-OLED boards without fighting a fight. Even with the screen off, the C2 looks great. It features a nearly bezel-less frame, a new space-saving and versatile mount, and the same incredibly thin profile the series is known for.

But it’s the image quality that counts, right? Here, the LG C2 makes a slight improvement over the previous model, while maintaining the impressive contrast depth offered by OLED. The Sony A95K It may excel in color accuracy, but it comes in limited sizes available and a crazy price, and the LG C2 OLED still offers the best picture quality you can get for the money. Simply.

SteelSeries Aerox 9 Wireless

Click to your heart’s content

Positives

  • Lightweight for its class

  • strong keys

  • High customization

  • Useful CPI toggle

  • Competitive price and features

Negatives

  • Button grid can be tricky

  • USB-C dongle restricted

looking for new gaming mouse? Well good luck. There is a ridiculous amount of premium options that are similar, and it can be mind boggling trying to narrow them down. Well, if you play MOBA or MMO games, you will appreciate the additional 12 customizable grid on this button, the SteelSeries Aerox 9 Wireless.

For a mouse with so many buttons, the 89g weight seems staggering. The switches are also present, which makes it a better performer. Just make sure your computer has a USB-C port before choosing that port.
