About us

TheGamingSetup is a review site dedicated solely to gaming products. Our goal is to help you find the absolute best setup for you. We do that by giving straightforward reviews and buying recommendations.

What makes you different other gaming recommendation sites?

To be frank, the other ones kinda suck, they’re making random recommendations and a large majority of them likely don’t test the mice themselves before making a recommendation.

We buy our own products (usually from Amazon), test them rigorously at our Toronto location and then recommend which product is the best to buy. Afterwards we will either giveaway or re-sell the products we’ve reviewed.

In short, we’re actually investing a lot of time and money to make sure we get these recommendations right.

Why should we trust you?

Raymond Sam

My name is Raymond, I’m the founder of thegamingsetup.com.

I have a few thousand hours of Dota, Starcraft 1 & 2, Street Fighter, Overwatch, PUBG, Apex Legends and Call of Duty under my belt with the intention of adding several more thousand going forward.

I believe I have an intimate knowledge of what makes for a good gaming product and what makes for a not so good product.

Combine the experience with hundreds of  hours of real testing, I’m confident we’ll make picks that you’ll love. And that’s important because we make a bit of cash for every product you buy through our links, but we only keep that money if you love what you got. Read more about the links here.

Our current setup for TGS

This is the gaming setup where the majority of our gaming products are put through the ringer. We’ve spent some time putting together what we think is a pretty ideal and ergonomic gaming setup so that we can really focus on the product being tested.

Our gaming rig is set up to make sure we’re not dropping frames and our reviews aren’t affected by poor performance on the computing side:

 

Why haven’t you reviewed this product yet?

Our review process takes a lot more time than you normally see for gaming products, we can’t get to everything in a short manner. We also don’t consider niche or not widely available products, the products we review must be accessible to a wide demographic.

If you really think we should  review something specific, please suggest a product to us at suggest@thegamingsetup.com. Let us know what how you think how we’re doing as well and what we can be doing better.
