TP-LINK AC3200 Wireless Tri-Band Gigabit Router Review

Others/Networking Gear by stefan @ 2016-06-29 read/post comments()

The AC3200 router from TP-LINK is another high-end offering which does use Tri-Band technology to run no less than three separate Wi-Fi channels at once. The second added 5GHz band makes sure that more devices can connect to the router, without a decrease in performance; also, thanks to the Smart Connect feature, the devices which do need to connect to the router will be assigned to one of the channels which has least load in order to perform balancing. read more

Razer ManO'War Wireless PC Gaming Headset Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2016-06-28 read/post comments(0)

The ManO’War headset is also marketed as a 7.1 virtual surround sound solution and thanks to the Synapse software, it can deliver good precision on the battlefield if we calibrate it to match our preferences; also, thanks to the 50mm drivers we will get powerful bass which immerses us further inside the game. With the ManO’War we no longer need to think about battery life much when having long LAN parties because the headset can provide us with up to 14 hours of continuous usage, while keeping the Razer Chroma lighting active. If we decide we do not need the LED lights in order to impress our rivals, then the usage time can climb up to 20 hours; if the… read more

Silicon Power S55 TLC 120GB and 240GB SSD Review

Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2016-06-23 read/post comments(0)

The S55 TLC series of SSDs from Silicon Power are offering quite a bit of storage space at acceptable performance levels unless the buffer gets filled; if we are used to transferring frequently large batches of files to the drive, the speed will decrease to a minimum of about 95MB/s (regular HDD performance levels), but we will still benefit from very good access times. read more

AVEXIR Raiden 32GB 2666MHz C15 DDR4 Memory Kit Review

Memory by stefan @ 2016-06-21 read/post comments(0)

After quite a lengthy development process, the Raiden series from AVEXIR has been launched, a product which reminds us of the Raiden character of Mortal Kombat which was able to shoot lightning out its hands in order to electrocute its opponents. These modules are a bit more peaceful :) , sporting plasma tubes in a blue color, which bring an unique effect to any gaming/overclocking or regular build. read more

Creative Sound BlasterX H7 Gaming Headset Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2016-06-17 read/post comments(0)

Despite the fact that we are dealing with a steel reinforced headband, brushed aluminum and large cups which do hold 50mm drivers that should add some weight, the Sound BlasterX H7 headset remains quite light, having about 364g. By including a 24-bit/96kHz USB DAC, Creative is basically offering us a 2-in-1 product, but can be only used when the headset is connected via USB. If the product is plugged in via analog connection, the DAC is bypassed and the audio quality will highly depend on the sound card/CODEC we are working with. read more

Crucial Ballistix Elite 16GB 2666 DDR4 Memory Kit Review

Memory by stefan @ 2016-06-16 read/post comments(0)

The Ballistix Elite RAM kit is featuring very sturdy, rugged heatsinks and seem to drive up the module weight quite a bit. Unlike some other manufacturers, Crucial likes to equip some of their RAM series with extra sensors, in this case for tracking temperature per each module, which can be checked out in real time via their Memory Overview Display (or M.O.D.) utility. read more
