Patriot Supersonic Rage Prime 1TB USB 3.2 Gen2 Flash Drive Review

Storage/Other by stefan @ 2021-10-11 read/post comments(0)

Patriot was not joking to include the Supersonic Rage Prime as a member of their Extreme Performance drives, since it really delivers! The read/write performance has topped our charts, while the 1TB storage variant should be enough for most users when transferring data from one computer to another. The plastic capless design is durable and does not need any extra drivers to operate at the advertised speeds, the only condition would be that the computer comes with USB 3.2 Gen2 ports. read more

After configuring the DPI steps, buttons and polling rate to our own liking, we fired up Marvel’s Avengers, AION, Rogue Company and the remastered Quake. The low weight of only 79g, easily accessible programmable buttons and comfortable shape do transform the SABRE RGB PRO WIRELESS in a very pleasant experience. The high-end sensor is quite overkill for most situations and we do get near-cable latency thanks to the SLIPSTREAM WIRELESS connectivity. read more

Toshiba Canvio Gaming 4TB Portable HDD Review

Storage/HDD by stefan @ 2021-10-01 read/post comments(0)

The Canvio Gaming 4TB offers good performance for an external 2.5’’ 5400RPM drive and is silent during operation as well. The amount of storage should be plenty for a big game collection and while not getting the same access times as on an SSD model, the product can sustain high speed transfer rates for longer versus cheap-QLC based solutions. 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 great 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
