Gaming combo review: Arctic Cooling P531 surround-sound gaming headset and Arctic Cooling M571 gaming mouse

For the price both the Arctic Cooling P531 headset and the Arctic Cooling M571 gaming mouse are good-value products. The lack of Macintosh instructions is a niggle but not a flaw: neither product is sold as a Mac peripheral as such, they just happen to work great when plugged into a Mac.

About Neale Monks

Neale Monks has used Macs since 1990, when he was won over by the simplicity of printing from a networked Mac compared to doing the same thing with networked PCs. Since that time he's written for several Macintosh magazines including Macworld and Macformat as well as MyMac.com, InformIT, Peachpit, TidBITs, and the now-defunct AppleLust web site. Besides using Macs to make his living every day of the week, he likes to tinker about with vintage Macs, and a few years back wrote an e-book called 'Buying Used Macs' published through MyMac.com. Neale has a degree in zoology and a PhD in palaeontology. He lives in the market town of Berkhamsted on the edge of the Chiltern Hills.

About Owen Rubin

He later worked for Pacific Bell to lead the design of services for the first commercial broadband system in the US, and then went on to be the lead researcher of broadband for Paul Allen's Interval Research. Since then, he has been an executive at a number of startups in security and semiconductors, and CTO of Edison Labs, a startup focusing on helping commercial clients write and develop mobile apps.
