Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2021-09-19 read/post comments(0)

The Phison PS5012-E12S-based drive paired with Toshiba 96-layer TLC packages is able to deliver great performance for a PCIe 3.0 drive; the installed heatsink allows the drive to keep temperatures at bay and avoid throttling, while the five year warranty is very nice to have! read more

CORSAIR HS80 RGB WIRELESS Premium Gaming Headset with Spatial Audio Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2021-09-13 read/post comments(0)

Right after adjusting the headband of the HS80 RGB Wireless, the headset felt immediately more comfortable versus the previous HS iterations. The overall construction feels light, even if it also needs to house batteries for up to 20 hours of autonomy. The 50mm drivers deliver great low frequencies, as well as well represented mids and highs, making the HS80 gread not only for gaming but for the rest of multimedia contents as well! Can we add to the mix the broadcast-quality microphone, which is light, easily accessible with the flip design to take calls for work and be easily understood? read more

Patriot EP V30 A1 512GB microSD Flash Memory Card Review

Storage/Other by stefan @ 2021-09-07 read/post comments(0)

The Patriot Memory EP V30 A1 card offers solid read/write performance and we were surprised that the write speeds obtained in our tests were higher that the ones declared by the manufacturer. Given the results, 4K video recording on action cameras such as GoPro Hero 9 Black will not encounter any issues and considering the fact that this type of activity takes a lot of storage space, we will always recommend going with the higher capacity SKUs. read more

PowerColor Hellhound AMD Radeon RX 6600XT 8GB GDDR6 Video Card Review

Videocards/VGA Reviews by stefan @ 2021-09-02 read/post comments(0)

The PowerColor Hellhound RX 6600 XT positions itself between the custom RX 5700 and 5700 XT cards in terms of performance, being a considerably smaller card and at the same time consuming like half of the power from the wall. This also traduces in the need of less elaborated cooling systems to keep the temperatures in check, so the card does not weight a ton. The dual-fan solution looks cool when in operation and remains silent even at high loads. In a well-ventilated case, the temperature of the GPU should not reach 60 degrees Celsius (even when watching 4K videos), which means that in “office use” mode, the fans will mostly stay off thanks to Zero-RPM technology. read more

Neo Forza eSports NFP075 M.2 2280 2TB PCIe SSD Review

Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2021-08-29 read/post comments(0)

The NFP075 2TB M.2 SSD comes with 3D TLC NAND, not QLC and this really reflects in high transfer speeds, even after the pseudo-SLC space has been filled but also when looking at the rated TBW. While Neo Forza guarantees an endurance of 1550 TB for the 2TB model, we have noted an SSD from another brand which uses similar components with a TBW of no less than 3115, so we think that the declared value is a bit low, which is great! The drive positions itself in terms of performance with other high-specced PCIe 3.0 drives on the market such as the Crucial P5 and won't throttle during intense use if installed in a well ventilated case. read more

Razer Barracuda X Multi-Platform Wireless Headset Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2021-08-23 read/post comments(0)

The Barracuda X headset does not have compatibility with Razer Synapse, so there were no software options we could choose from. Right after connecting the headset to our test machine, we listened to a few YouTube music videos, podcasts, watched a couple of movies on HBO Go but also ran some games. The EQ setting of the headset is balanced, with a good bass delivery for most applications; additionally, the headset is fully compatible with technologies such as Dolby Atmos, Pulse 3D (PlayStation), THX Spatial Audio and more. read more
