Fractal Design Meshify S2 Black Tempered Glass Edition
     Fri, Feb 15 2019 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fractal is launching the new version of the Meshify case line which is all about airflow, the Fractal Design Meshify S2. Fractal tends to build a more subdued case. Lacking from Fractal's line up are RGB LED-laden chassis. Don't get me wrong, there's a time and a place for RGB LEDs. Fractal has taken lessons learned from their other lines …

Fractal Design Meshify S2 Case
     Fri, Feb 15 2019 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
” The Meshify S2 comes in at a retail of $149, and it is available in a few different flavors including black and white, and with light or dark tinted glass. There is even a version with metal panels on both sides. From a bang-for-the-buck perspective, I think the Meshify S2 is fairly priced. There are many cases in the sub $100 range, but you would have to buy two or three cases to get the features found in the Meshify S2 - which of course is not practical. It is hard to build a system in more than one case! So Fractal Design takes the Meshify to the next level and hits the ball out of the park by combining the best of two existing cases into one new design.”

Razer DeathAdder Essential Mouse Review
     Thu, Feb 14 2019 | 9:03A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Razer has long been known for its premium, feature packed mice, with very few alternatives for the budget consumer. This began to change with the introduction of its Essential Gaming line, seeing the release of the Razer Abyssus Essential earlier this year. Now, the company has given its famous DeathAdder range the same treatment – but can the DeathAdder Essential compete in a market already oversaturated with budget offerings?

Creative Outlier ONE Plus In-ear Headphones with Built-in MP3
     Thu, Feb 14 2019 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Creative made sure to make this product customizable so accessories were offered in order to offer plenty of comfort during your activities; in terms of Bluetooth supported codecs, this one comes with SBC only that is a bit lossy, so it is possible you will notice a bit of audio stream degradation during some tracks. This small issue will not be however present when you load up your tracks on the 4GB internal storage and the Outlier ONE Plus does support MP3 and WMA files up to 320kbps, including FLAC up to 1.3Mbps bitrate.

MSI GeForce RTX 2060 Ventus 6G OC Graphics Card Review
     Wed, Feb 13 2019 | 6:39P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With the GeForce RTX 2060 MSI is initially launching with two models, the RTX 2060 Ventus 6G OC and RTX 2060 Gaming Z 6G. Surprisingly both of these cards come with factory overclocks. Today we are going to be taking a look at the RTX 2060 Ventus 6G OC, which is only $10 more than NVIDIA’s MSRP on the RTX 2060 of $349. With that you are getting a factory overclock up to 1710 MHz (compared to 1680 MHz), a nice dual-fan cooling solution, and a full-cover backplate. That seems like quite a lot for only a $10 premium, let’s see if this is the RTX 2060 card to get."
