HotHardware Holiday Gift Guide 2010

6 thumbs up

Okay, so you've got your GPU squared away, but what good are great graphics without great audio to accompany it? No good at all.
Razer Orca headphones - $52


Razer's new Orca headphones have more going for them than just an attention-getting green exterior. They're purportedly comfortable to wear, and you can switch between gaming at home and listening to music on the go without worrying about getting all tangled up in cabling. That's because Razer includes two sets of braided cables for the Orca headphones, including a shorter, standard cable for plugging into your MP3 player while you groove down the block, and a longer, 2 meter extension (a little over 2.5 feet) when you want to get your game on.

Turtle Beach Ear Force DX11
- $129


The Ear Force DX11 Gaming Headset has just hit the market wire, with Dolby 7.1 channel surround sound tucked into two major earcups that are sure to provide brain-rocking sound to keep you engrossed in Halo: Reach. These also have a pull-down microphone for chatting over Xbox LIVE, and there's even a bass booster, 40mm sound drivers, S/PDIF-to-analog converter, front panel USB pass-thru that allows other USB devices to be connected for power or data, and independent volume controls for game and voice signals to balance XBOX LIVE® chat and game sound. 

Logitech Wireless Headset F540 - $149


This headset uses 40mm laser-tuned drivers, a noise-canceling microphone and a 2.4GHz transceiver. And if you're tired of going through batteries, this one has a rechargeable cell that can recharge overnight when you dock it. It'll last around 10 hours on a single charge.

Asus WiCast Wirless WHDI Wireless HDMI Transmitter Kit - $193
The Asus WiCast is one of those devices that "just works."  This little gem takes an HDMI signal from virtually any device (like a notebook, game console or PC) and transmits it wirelessly to a receiving unit that plugs into an HDMI input on your TV.  It doesn't even come with a driver disc.  Just plug it in and watch it work.  Spanning or cloned mode, whatever your existing graphics chip can display, these little boxes will transmit it and set it up.  It's a thing of beauty.




Rocketfish 4-Port WirelessHD HDMI Kit - $299


This wireless HD kit sends full HDMI quality signals from up to 4 source components to an HDTV or projector and operates on a 60GHz frequency range for crystal-clear reception.

>> Have you been naughty or nice?

 

Oh sure... throw that in my face.

 

I have the Samsung SyncMaster P2770 (not FH), and highly recommend it.  Even with 2ms time (same contrast ratio), I never notice ghosting or blurring.  The FH model sounds like an awesome gift.

I'm actually happy that I already have several things on the list.

Something to add in, for those people like I was with six (yes SIX) remotes on my coffee table is the Logitech Harmony series of remotes.  The Harmony One for those who don't need RF, the Harmony 900 (which I picked up) for those who do.

I fell in love with the remote less than an hour after opening it.  Replaced all my remotes, actually handles all the I/O and on/off for any activities you use it for, full color touch screen.  Review it guys!

Nice gift list really like the list. Specifically the GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD5is an awesome 1366 socket board which I have used on one rig for close to a year now with no issues at all. The NZXT Phantom and Corsair Cases are awesome, as are the headphones (of which I need a new pair of, just because I want some )). I could personally really use a flat screen monitor as well 22.5" or bigger (as it is always better) will do, just hit me up for my address when you wanna send me one.
