The Armor A30 2.5’’ USB 3.0 portable drives from Silicon Power are built to last in harsh conditions and the manufacturer has included materials like shock-resistant silica gel which combines with the plastic external shell. Silicon Power also reminds us that the drive has passed the test in compliance with the US military MIL-STD-810G (transit drop test) which means a 300cm experimental fall test. read more

Func MS-2 Gaming Mouse Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2014-11-24 read/post comments()

The Func MS-2 mouse has given us a good impression as the MS-3 version before it and is able to deliver a good gaming experience for mainstream gamers and seems to be better suited for fingertip grip users with smaller hands. The soft-touch coating offers a good grip which is important during long gaming sessions while the extra buttons are carefully placed for easy accessibility. read more

Corsair DDR4 16GB Vengeance LPX 2800C16 Memory Kit Review

Memory by leeghoofd @ 2014-11-18 read/post comments(0)

DDR4 has finally hit the big masses with the release of Intel's high end X99 platform aka Haswell-E. Besides the massive available bandwidth these DDR4 modules can also pack a far higher density per stick. All this goodness is available at your disposal while requiring a mere 1.2Volts. Only drawback, as per each technology at launch is the high retail price. Today we have a look at CORSAIR's mainstream kit: the Vengeance LPX series, however mainstream doesn't necessarily imply low speeds. The kit we are reviewing today runs out of the box at 2800MHz; not uber high end speeds though more than suitable to satisfy both the tweakers and the die-hard enthusiasts. read more

Patriot Memory Stellar Boost XT 64GB USB 3.0 OTG Drive Review

Storage/Other by stefan @ 2014-11-11 read/post comments()

The new Stellar Boost XT drive from Patriot Memory has quite a small footprint and also features a durable rubberized chassis. The read performance of the drive is very good, nearing 150MB/s in our tests, while the writes are in the 35MB/s area, quite close to the best performing USB 2.0 drives. These speeds are more than enough for maxing out the transfers when connected to our favorite smartphone/tablet which supports OTG for doing backups, watching Full HD content and many other activities. read more
