Silicon Power UD70 PCIe Gen3x4 M.2 2280 1TB SSD Review

Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2021-03-02 read/post comments(0)

The UD70 mainstream SSD from Silicon Power is QLC-based but also uses DRAM caching and a Phison PS5012-E12S-32 controller, succeeding to keep writing speeds over 100MB/s after the SLC pseudo-cache has been fully occupied. With the SLC cache emptied, it can reach the rated speeds without any issues at all, making it an ideal upgrade for mainstream desktops/laptops which need a performance jump from regular 2.5’’ SSDs. read more

CORSAIR KATAR PRO XT Ultra-Light Gaming Mouse Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2021-02-25 read/post comments(0)

The KATAR PRO XT incorporates a sensor we have seen before with other CORSAIR mice such as the M65 RGB Elite, the Ironclaw RGB, Harpoon RGB Wireless and so on. The sensor performs flawlessly and is helped by the lightweight aspect of the mouse but also the paracord drag-reducing cable with very good flexibility. read more

Patriot P210 2TB 2.5'' SSD Review

Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2021-02-24 read/post comments(0)

The cost-effective Patriot P210 SSD is ideal for people which are not interested in highly-sustained write speeds but more on capacity and this without breaking the bank. Its overall behavior is similar to the one we have seen with other QLC DRAM-less drives, meaning that until the SLC pseudo-cache fills up, the write speed will remain high but afterwards it will drop to as low as 13MB/s. This is a non-issue for most mainstream users and the drive is positioned correctly on the market price-wise. read more

Others/Miscelleneous by stefan @ 2021-02-19 read/post comments(0)

The MM700 RGB Extended Cloth Gaming Mouse Pad from CORSAIR does have ideal dimensions for fitting both your mouse and keyboard (and even more!), while sporting enhanced functionality thanks to the included USB hub but also eye candy via the RGB lighting. RGB effects will integrate with the other CORSAIR devices via iCUE and if needed you can disable as well RGB segments from the three available ones. read more

Shuttle XPC slim DA320 Robust 1.3-litre Mini PC for AMD Review

Others/All-in-one PC by stefan @ 2021-02-14 read/post comments(0)

The 1.3-litre XPC slim DA320 mini PC from Shuttle is the company’s first AMD compact barebone and features most of the connectivity options we have seen with the Intel variants. The chassis is not the latest design as the DH470, meaning that we do not get USB Type-C ports, the new frontal panel or air filters on the top cover but all other aspects do match the previous barebone SKU. In terms of performance with a similarly priced Intel CPU (such as the i3-10100), the AMD Ryzen 5 2400G does fall a bit behind regarding CPU performance, but simply destroys the Intel platform when looking at the GPU scores. read more

Razer Ornata V2 Hybrid Mecha-Membrane Gaming Keyboard Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2021-02-08 read/post comments(0)

The Razer hybrid mecha-membrane switches do offer an interesting combination between the feeling of clicky mechanical switches and the cushioned feel of regular office keyboard keys. If the users in your vicinity do not mind the noise, the keyboard can be well used for typing in the office and can be also thought as an entry-level keyboard for gaming purposes. The activation point is lower when compared to standard mechanical switches, while the low-profile keycaps do provide a nice overall experience. read more
