CORSAIR M55 RGB PRO Ambidextrous Multi-Grip Gaming Mouse Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2019-06-14 read/post comments(0)

The new M55 RGB PRO mouse from CORSAIR features a compact ambidextrous chassis and a 3327 mainstream sensor from PixArt that is able to reach up to 12400 DPI via interpolation (the native DPI value is 6200). If you are a mainstream gamer and also need to perform office work, the M55 RGB PRO can perform the needed tasks wonderfully; the iCUE software really adds value to the product by providing quite a bit configuration options regarding the programmable buttons, DPI steps and RGB lighting. read more

TEAMGROUP T1 DDR4 GAMING 2x8GB DDR 2666 Memory Kit Review

Memory by stefan @ 2019-06-09 read/post comments(0)

The latest T-FORCE T1 memory kits from TEAMGROUP are designed for mainstream computers but also entry-level machines but even in this case, the manufacturer has used pre-screened IC chips in order to avoid stability issues and also feature pre-programmed XMP 2.0 profiles. At this price you are not getting RGB lighting or a heatspreaders (at the advertised speeds it won’t be mandatory anyways), but the modules still look quite interesting thanks to the white/red ink used on the PCB. read more

Silicon Power P34A80 PCIe 3x4 M.2 2280 SSD Review

Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2019-06-02 read/post comments(0)

The new P34A80 SSD featuring the Phison E12 controller is quite speedy and performs great even if we are dealing with only 25GB of SLC cache out of the total NAND capacity. We would recommend it for installation in both desktops, laptops and if we do have the possibility, we could pair two of these in a RAID 0 configuration for even higher performance. The Toshiba BiCS TLC NAND is joined by 256MB of Nanya DRAM for tasks such as ECC, wear-leveling and the whole drive is backed up with a 5-year warranty, which makes you wonder if it does worth it to consider a HDD nowadays. read more

Patriot Memory Signature Line Premium DDR4 16GB (2 x 8GB) 2666MHz Kit Review

Memory by stefan @ 2019-05-26 read/post comments(0)

RAM has decreased quite a bit in price and mainstream kits are now more affordable than ever! The Patriot Memory Signature Line Premium is one of the solid choices you could take into account if you are not interested in RGB kits and are building or upgrading a system with a good price/performance ratio. The kit does not have XMP pre-programmed profiles but is compatible with most platforms and thanks to the low-profile heatspreader you won’t have any issues when using beefier CPU heatsinks or smaller enclosures.   read more

Razer Hammerhead Duo In-ear Headset Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2019-05-16 read/post comments(0)

After connecting the headset to our DELL Inspiron 7577 laptop combo jack, we tested the headset with different YouTube content, light gaming and some TV shows: thanks to the dual driver implementation, we are clearly seeing a better bass representation and very clear highs, which is a notable improvement over the previously tested models. Thanks to the included silicone tips, the shape of the earpieces and the light aluminum construction, the Hammerhead Duo is very comfortable and we did not encounter situations where it would fell out of one of our ears. While lower-priced headsets of this size do distort at higher volumes, these do not have issues when cranking up the volume; however, given the in-ear type of headset,… read more


Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2019-05-10 read/post comments(0)

The wireless feature addition to the IRONCLAW RGB series is nice to have, especially thanks to the SLIPSTREAM technology that allows very low latencies, so you will not see differences versus wired mode. The included 1000mAh rechargeable Li-Po battery allows usage up to 16 hours from a single charge on WiFi, with all RGB segments turned on; if we go in Power Saving mode, the LED lighting turns off, but we will benefit from much more usage time. The extra battery brings the weight up to 133 grams, which is still manageable and thanks to its large footprint people with larger hands will have no issues using with a comfortable palm grip. read more
