Toshiba N300 8TB NAS Hard Drive Review

Storage/HDD by stefan @ 2018-11-20 read/post comments()

With the launch of the N300 series, Toshiba has a strong competitor on the enterprise storage/NAS market, that is able to offer good transfer speeds, is able to handle about 180TB of data per year and is approved for 24/7 operation. The drives have a MTTF of 1 million hours and are available with four different capacities: 4TB, 6TB, 8TB (128MB cache) and 10TB (256MB cache). read more

CORSAIR K70 RGB MK.2 Low Profile Gaming Keyboard Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2018-11-16 read/post comments(0)

While with the K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE sporting regular MX Speed switches we needed a bit of adjustment time due to the fast 1.2mm mechanical actuation distance and was sometimes difficult typing documents without making mistakes, with the K70 RGB MK.2 Low Profile we felt that no training time was needed. We are dealing with a 35% lower key height versus the regular Speed switch and people that enjoy typing on laptop keyboards will really enjoy the new LP series. Another aspect that we did really enjoy is that the LP Speed switches are quiet, if not more quiet versus the regular MX Silent variant. read more

Razer Nari Wired/Wireless Gaming Headset Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2018-11-10 read/post comments(0)

After using the Nari headset for quite a bit in different scenarios such as gaming, listening to music but also watching TV shows and movies, we can really say that the large 50mm drivers really pack a punch and should please the majority of gamers, mainstream computer or laptop users. The surround feature of Razer headsets was great and now with the added THX it is even better and easy customizable via Synapse software. This is easy one of the most comfortable headsets we have tried so far and the gel-infused cushions are not a marketing gimmick: the headset can be easily used for long periods of time, doing the activities you enjoy. read more

Ballistix Tactical Tracer RGB DDR4-2666 2x8GB Kit Review

Memory by stefan @ 2018-11-05 read/post comments(0)

The new Ballistix Tactical Tracer RGB do not disappoint by offering good performance and quite a bit of overclocking headroom; these are available with multiple speed ratings and 8GB/16GB densities per module. The LED lighting system is configurable in very much detail and we have the option to leave it run without the light bar for maximum LED brightness. The temperature sensors are a nice feature to have as well, that has been preserved from the previous generations. read more

SteelSeries Rival 710 Gaming Mouse Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2018-10-28 read/post comments(0)

People that did not have a chance to try out the Rival 700, it is now a good time to give it a go, since it features an updated, proven sensor (SteelSeries TrueMove3), better switches and a modular design. As we have experienced with the Rival 310, Sensei 310 or the Rival 600, the sensor performed great in games such as CS: GO, Diablo III, Bless Online or GTA V. During our testing, we did not encounter any erratic movements and the haptic feedback does help at times, if configured correctly. read more

CORSAIR Force Series MP300 480GB M.2 SSD Review

Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2018-10-26 read/post comments(0)

The MP300 SSD from Corsair does offer good mainstream performance, with test results hovering around the rated speeds. By using Toshiba’s BiCS 3D TLC NAND ICs, the MP300 is no speed demon, but it is a very good replacement for the aging SATA3 standard. Thanks to the M.2 standard, the MP300 is very compact, single-sided and does not require extra cables in order to operate; the only thing you need to check before purchase is that your motherboard does support NVMe PCI-Express Gen 3.0 x2, otherwise the drive won’t be usable. read more
