Tritton AX180 Universal Headset (Xbox 360/PS3/PC)

After using the standard Xbox 360 headset for about 6 years now, I decided it was well and truly time to upgrade my gaming headset. Having recently got a PS3 as well, I decided that I could not play online on the PS3 using my O2 bluetooth jabra headset as it was, in a nut-shell, complete garbage.

Anyway, after reading several reviews of different headsets and coming to the conclusion that a) I wasn’t going to spend £100+ on pair and b) they had to be universal – I decided to pick up a pair of the Tritton AX180’s.

Retail they sell for around £45 (Amazon, Game and Tesco), depending on where you purchase them, but I got these for a cool £30 in the end using some reward points.

New Gaming/AV Set-Up

Firstly, before I get started with the main post. I just want to say I hope you all had a very merry Christmas yesterday and I wish you all the best for 2012 when it arrives. It’s been a very busy month for me, with an increase in hours at work and trying to sort things out for Christmas, free-time has been very hard to find lately.  As a result of this, I have been a tad AWOL and I will try posting a lot of new stuff when I get the chance. Right, back on topic and please excuse my crappy Blackberry phone camera (it sucks !)…

After using a 22″ BenQ monitor for most of my gaming needs over the last 2-3 years, I have finally upgraded to something a little bigger and better. Due to working quite a lot this month and the fact I’ve been wanting to buy myself a nice flatscreen TV for a good while now, I took the plunge and upgraded my 22″ monitor to this…

LG 42LW650T: 42", Full HD 1080p, Cinema 3D, LEDplus TV

The LG 42LW650T: A 42″, full HD 1080p, cinema 3D, LEDplus TV (so glad there isn’t anymore D’s, B’s, P’s or HD’s involved in the description: ”Yeah I got a..wait for it… a 42 inch full 1080p, HD, 3D, LED, Freeview HD, MP3, USB, DVD, TV” – you get the idea).

But wait theres plenty more…
