1MORE Stylish True Wireless In-Ear Headphones Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2019-07-10 read/post comments(0)

After connecting the headphones to our trusty Huawei P30 smartphone, we tested it while listening to multiple podcasts on SoundCloud but also on YouTube; considering the driver size, we were impressed with the overall sound quality this kit can deliver, including bass. This fact makes the Stylish True Wireless In-Ear an ideal companion while traveling to work or on vacation. If not both channels are needed, we can easily use a single channel and it will act like a regular hands-free kit; we could use the kit for about 6 hours at regular volume and the charging case will surely assist with its fast charge capabilities. read more

CORSAIR Force Series MP510 480GB M.2 SSD Review

Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2019-07-05 read/post comments(0)

As expected, the MP510 drive from CORSAIR trades punches with the P34A80 SSD from Silicon Power, since they do feature the exact same Phison E12 controller, two Toshiba BiCS TLC NAND ICs and 512MB of Nanya DRAM caching, meant for different tasks such as ECC, wear-leveling information and more. read more

SteelSeries Arctis 1 All-Platform Wired Gaming Headset Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2019-06-30 read/post comments(0)

After trying the Arctis 1 headset with different audio content, we have noticed a signature nearly identical to the Arctis 3 Bluetooth by using the same input which is the Creative Sound BlasterX AE-5 internal sound card. This aspect is quite neat, considering that Arctis 1 is only 59.99 Euros and features the same custom-tuned drivers as the higher-priced model. In order to reduce the price, SteelSeries has employed a more standard chassis design this time, with a plastic headband but reinforced with steel underneath for durability. read more

Razer DeathAdder Mouse Series Notable Achievement

Others/Editorials by stefan @ 2019-06-27 read/post comments(0)

On the 27th of June 2019, Razer is celebrating something very special and to be more exact it has reached the milestone of selling over 10 million DeathAdder mice. Since the first model in 2006 (I do remember winning one in a contest along with the Barracuda HP-1 headphones and the Tarantula keyboard), Razer has perfected the model and launched over 25 editions so far. read more

Razer BlackWidow Lite Silent Mechanical Keyboard Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2019-06-25 read/post comments(0)

When working at the home office and you have quite a bit of typing to do on the laptop or desktop computer, Razer helps with the their new, compact TKL BlackWidow Lite keyboard that features non-intrusive, all-white keyboard lighting. The Orange Razer-made switches have a similar feel to the CHERRY MX Browns, which are ideal for typing purposes, but do not expect the same level of silence as with the MX Silent variants. For eliminating the bottoming down sound, Razer has included a set of O-rings that can be easily installed by the user on the desired keys. Be careful though when removing larger keys that feature stabilizer clips, in order not to damage it. read more

Crucial MX500 1TB SATA 2.5" 7mm Internal SSD Review

Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2019-06-20 read/post comments(0)

The 1TB version of the MX500 Crucial SSD does trade punches with the 500GB and 250GB versions we have previously tested and overall we are seeing good mainstream performance for both reads and writes. We are getting plenty of storage space for different activities and the endurance is great as well: the 1TB model is rated at 360TB of written data, which translates in about 197GB per day for the warranty period of 5 years. read more
