Fresh 'n Rebel Rockbox Chunk Fabriq Edition Wireless Speaker Review

Audio/Speakers&Amps by stefan @ 2016-05-30 read/post comments()

Rockbox Chunk speaker was tested while connected to our Sound Blaster ZxR sound card on Aux but also to our MEIZU MX4 smartphone on Bluetooth for listening to music on YouTube and various other clips and we can say that we were impressed regarding the amount of volume this device can deliver without distorting, also with a decent amount of bass. The top media controls are easy accessible and because of the long usage times, it is ideal to be taken outside when on trips, picnics and other activities. The Fabriq Edition is considerably more special than the original because of the retro look and can be picked in five different colors. read more

TP-LINK Neffos C5L Smartphone Review

Mobile/Smart Phones by stefan @ 2016-05-26 read/post comments()

Neffos C5L was mainly designed for people which do not want to spend a lot when purchasing a smartphone and its dimensions are ideal in a market which is flooded with phablets. The back shooter can produce good quality photos to be used online and the interface has been simplified so anyone can take a photo with ease. We are not talking about “another” MTK smartphone this time, but incorporates a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 SoC along with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory; if this storage space is not enough for us, then we can supplement with up to 32GB via microSDHC cards. read more

Shuttle XPC Cube Barebone SZ170R8 Review

Others/All-in-one PC by stefan @ 2016-05-24 read/post comments()

With the SZ170R8, Shuttle has eliminated some of the compatibility with somewhat unused hardware nowadays like optical drives and made some serious space for installing no less than four 3.5’’ drives inside the 14.2 litre chassis. A fan was also added in front in order to cool these but also for facilitating a more fluent airflow from the front to the back of the case; the case does support installation of up to 64GB of RAM (DDR4, 2133MHz), a dual-slot video card (which can be powered by one 6-pin and one 8-pin PSU connector), a M.2 SSD, an optional Wireless LAN card, a COM-port for special applications but also 2.5’’ drives with an extra adapter. read more
