HERMAN MILLER X LOGITECH G EMBODY
The Herman Miller X Logitech G Embody is a luxury chair clocking in at $1595.00USD. It was part of our writer’s Tuesday series surrounding gaming and office chairs for women. Specifically created to support your entire spine, it comes equipped with cooling foam and plenty of adjustability. Here is CGMs review of the Herman Miller X Logitech G Embody.
Final Thoughts: This backrest is worth the hype. Instead of focusing on lumbar and a headrest, this chair envelops your entire spine in innovation.
DJI MOTION CONTROLLER
The DJI Motion Controller pairs with the DJI FPV Drone easily with the press of a few buttons. While using the controller, our reviewer was “immediately able to control the speed and direction without any issue whatsoever”, which explains why it is one of this month’s top scores! Here is CGMs review of the DJI Motion Controller.
Final Thoughts: The DJI Motion Controller isn’t what I expected but I have to say it’s a great product if you want the quickest and easiest way to experience FPV flying!
MASS EFFECT LEGENDARY EDITION
Mass Effect Legendary Edition is the complete remaster of all three Mass Effect games, released on May 14, 2021. It brought with it plenty of quality of life changes to the franchise and extra bonuses for fans of the series. Here is CGMs review of Mass Effect Legendary Edition on PlayStation 4.
Final Thoughts: Mass Effect Legendary Edition is one of the finest remasters made to-date. For newcomers and veterans alike, it’s the essential version of a must-play trilogy, honouring its strengths while smoothing out most of its faults.
XENCELABS PEN TABLET
The Xencelabs Pen Tablet paired with its Quick Keys Remote comes from a start-up company composed of creatives, boasting that their products are designed by creators for creators. Our reviewer believes that the products are “worthy of any level of expertise”, giving this product a solid 9.5. Here is CGMs review of the Xencelabs Pen Tablet.
Final Thoughts: Both the Xencelabs’ Medium Pen Tablet and Quick Key Remote are excellent drawing and design solutions that feel just as robust and high quality as other leading brands. I feel optimistic in seeing the future of the still burgeoning company.
AUDEZE PENROSE X
The Audeze Penrose X made an audiophile out of our reviewer with its high quality sound and cushy style. The headset has a perfect balance of comfort paired with immaculate audio which justifies its steep cost. Our reviewer recommends the headset for gaming and music, making it a go-to for most headset users. Here is CGMs review of the Audeze Penrose X.
Final Thoughts: The Audeze Penrose X provides high quality gaming audio at a high price with a few minor issues.
DYSON V11 OUTSIZE
The Dyson V11 Outsize had our reviewer excited to do his spring cleaning! It is large and heavier than expected but it’s top of the line and will remain a part of your cleaning routine for years. Dyson improved the V11 and V11 Absolute by widening the cleaning tank and making the bin larger, welcome improvements for any user. Here is CGMs review of the Dyson V11 Outsize.
Final Thoughts: The Dyson V11 Outsize makes me excited to clean the house and I can’t believe I’m even saying that.
RAZER BLACKWIDOW V3 MINI HYPERSPEED KEYBOARD
The Razer Blackwidow V3 Mini Hyperspeed keyboard is the newest member of Razer’s hyperspeed family. The 65% form factor keyboard performs flawlessly and saves much needed desk space. With three ways to connect to your PC, the keyboard can also share a single dongle with select other products in the Razer family. Here is CGMs review of the Razer Blackwidow V3 Mini Hyperspeed keyboard.
Final Thoughts: The Razer Blackwidow V3 Mini Hyperspeed is fast, space-saving and easy to use with all the extra bells and whistles users have come to rely on from Razer. For users who don’t rely on a number pad or have ridiculously tiny hands this is definitely a keyboard I would recommend.
TP-LINK GX90 GAMING ROUTER
The TP-Link GX90 Gaming Router brings users the elusive Wi-Fi 6 at home with a simple set up process to top it off. Bringing with it download speeds of 380MBps and upload speeds of 305MBps our reviewer saw a huge upgrade to his gaming performance. Here is CGMs review of the TP-Link GX90 Gaming Router.
Final Thoughts: If you are a gamer and need a solid router, the TP-Link Archer GX90 is an excellent fit for home and gaming needs that introduces Wi-Fi 6 effortlessly into any network.
RESIDENT EVIL VILLAGE
Resident Evil Village is arguably one of the most anticipated games of 2021, especially with its release to next-gen consoles. Our reviewer states that Resident Evil never loses its core magic, no matter what setting the game takes place in. The game is breathtaking and takes full advantage of the next-gen graphic capabilities. Here is CGMs review of Resident Evil Village.
Final Thoughts: Resident Evil Village is a worthy sequel that takes full advantage of its Gothic setting, with Capcom delivering an absolute masterclass in survival horror thrills.
EPOS GTW 270 HYBRID
The EPOS GTW 270 Hybrid earphones are geared toward gamers boasting lag-free sound while gaming, and according to our reviewer, EPOS succeeded with flying colours. With a premium look and feel, the earphones are comfortable and have a nice balance between style and quality while remaining easy to use. Here is CGMs review of the EPOS GTQ 270 HYRBID.
Final Thoughts: With the GTW 270 Hybrid, EPOS has done the impossible and made wireless earbuds that work better than many gaming headphones and sound amazing while doing so.
And our Monthly Dishonourable Mention: We have a tie!
Biomutant is an open-world action RPG released on May 25, 2021. Our review believed that the game didn’t come close to living up to the hype surrounding it, giving it a low score of four. Here is CGMs review of Biomutant.
Final Thoughts: Biomutant is the least fun I’ve had with a game in a while. Broken, shallow, and above all, BORING. This mutant should’ve stayed in the Ooze.
Miitopia is a Nintendo Switch upgrade from the 2017 original RPG. Our reviewer enjoyed the character creation, but unfortunately ended up landing on “Miidiocre”, scoring it with a four to tie with Biomutant this month for our Dishonourable Mention. Here is CGMs review of Miitopia.
Final Thoughts: Miitopia is whimsical in its opening hours, but becomes repetitive far too quickly.
That sums up our CGM Monthly Top 10 Reviews for May 2021. Come back on June 30, 2021 to see how the world of tech, toys, games and media kick off the summer!
