A brief review of my latest but not unexpected disappointment. Consider it a warning I felt the need to pass along and increase the signal for. (The original/full review is also in my own column at pcgameexaminer.com.)
Don’t let the glow of the PDP Afterglow AG9+ distract you. Shiny though it may be, the AG9+ is a mediocre multi-platform headset best avoided by strict PC gamers and left to the console playing tweens at which it’s likely aimed.
I confess that I’ve long suspected PDP was a company built on cheap flash, i.e. the costume jewelry of gaming peripherals. I’ve visited their show booths at E3 and PAX in the past, and found their wares to be largely cheap, shiny stuff aimed at less discerning (and probably younger) console-focused gamers. But I finally decided to finally give them a fair shake and review some of their accessories first hand, starting with the Rock Candy wireless keyboard, and then moving to the Afterglow AG9+ wireless headset.
