Hardware Reviews

Welcome to the Gaming Illustrated Hardware Reviews home. On this page we list all of our hardware reviews, which includes products for consoles and PCs. We also review “what’s cool” so occasionally we’ll find a gadget that we know gamers will enjoy and review it as well.

Hardware encompasses both internal and external devices. Hardware includes any physical component released with the singular goal of making an electronic experience better. This includes mice, keyboards, headsets, and other interface devices, as well as video cards, motherboards, and other PC components that seek to improve the performance from the inside. With a wide range of options, jargon and numbers, hardware has a high barrier to entry, and prices fluctuate frequently.

There are, however, a select few companies with philosophies that benefit the consumer. Offering the best technology wrapped in incredible build quality, these diamonds in the rough are given the Gaming Illustrated Editor’s Choice Award. Our review staff puts each product we review through an extensive hands-on testing process which is documented in all of our reviews.
