Creative Sound BlasterX AE-5 Pure Edition Hi-Resolution
     Sat, Jun 23 2018 | 4:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" After finalizing the hardware installation of the the AE-5 Pure Edition card to our test system, we did proceed further with the Sound Blaster Connect 2 installer, which did also contain the necessary drivers; in order to have the Aurora RGB setup functional, we also have to supply extra power via Molex., After adjusting the EQ with our preferences, together with the BlasterX Acoustic Engine settings, we did start the listening experience by connecting the SteelSeries Arctis Pro headset and watched various movies and TV shows. The audio output was clear, with plenty of bass and clear highs and loud enough as well after modifying the amplification, thanks to the Xamp build. We also ran multiple rounds of Quake Champions and the sound of the weapons was a joy to listen to and at the same time we were able to easily pinpoint where the enemy was coming from. "

Cooler Master MasterBox Q300L & Q300P PC Cases Review
     Fri, Jun 22 2018 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in January at CES when we visited with Cooler Master they showed us their Q300L and Q300P mini-tower cases. These cases not only looked great, but had an equally great price at $39.99 for the Q300L and $69.99 for the Q300P. On the inside both of these cases are the same supporting Micro-ATX motherboards, full-size graphics cards, 3 hard drives, and even some water-cooling. They offer all of that in a very small package. On the outside is where these cases are different. The Q300L is more subtle while the Q300P has extra paneling, handles on the top and bottom, and two RGB LED fans. Let’s take a look at these two affordable cases and see if they are perfect for your next build!"

Posted by: STAFF
A while back we were introduced to Pittasoft when we reviewed the BlackVue DR650S-2CH dashcam. Overall we were quite happy with the performance, but there were a few improvements we would have liked to see. When I recently heard the DR900S-2CH was coming out, I jumped on the chance to look at the new and improved device. The biggest improvement on paper is now the primary camera is capable of 4K resolution and the rear is 1080P.
