Dream Machines DM2 Supreme Gaming Mouse Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2020-06-26 read/post comments()

After customizing the DPI steps for a bit and adjusting the report rate to 1000Hz, we have started some sessions in Final Fantasy XIV, Smite but also Mafia II Definitive Edition. The sensor did track flawlessly, and we did really enjoy the comfortable shape of the DM2 Supreme. The mouse uses a rubberized, grippy coating on the whole surface but this one also picks up quite a bit of skin oils and dust, which are quite difficult to clean up. read more

Shuttle XPC nano NC10U3 Barebone Review

Others/All-in-one PC by stefan @ 2020-06-21 read/post comments(0)

The NC10U series follows the design lines of the previous member of the XPC nano line, the NC03U, by incorporating Whiskey Lake support and besides a noticeable boost in speed we do also get better video output options for 4K @ 60Hz, we can install more RAM but also can run memory at higher speeds than before. Unlike the DS10U3, which was designed to run in an industrial environment with passive cooling, the NC10U3 does feature active cooling with a small fan which is quite silent during normal operation or even high stress scenarios. read more

Razer Viper Mini Ultra-Light Gaming Mouse Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2020-06-05 read/post comments(0)

The Viper Mini can be thought of as a mainstream product from Razer, given the sensor choice but also the price point. After firing a few games of different categories, we did not feel disappointed with its tracking while operating on a 1440P display; the sensor performance is great and most casual gamers, content creators will not feel disappointed by it. One thing to keep in mind is that this mouse was not designed for people with large hands, in which case the positioning will be a little cramped. read more
