Kingston HyperX Pulsefire Dart Gaming Mouse
     Mon, Jan 27 2020 | 2:30P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today we're going to be taking a look at a new gaming mouse from Kingston. The HyperX line of gaming peripherals really seems to be heating up over the last year or so. Every time I walk into the store, I see the HyperX line on display alongside the prebuilt rigs in the store. That said, let's really take a look at this new offering by Kingston and see if it's worth the hundred dollar price tag."

AMD Ryzen 5 1600 AF Review: Incredible Budget CPU
     Mon, Jan 27 2020 | 2:27P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A mysterious Ryzen 5 1600 refresh made it to market late last year. Bizarrely, AMD has released a really cheap version of the Ryzen 5 2600, but just called it the Ryzen 5 1600. Known as the "1600 AF" because of the box identification this is a Zen+ 6-core, 12-thread part that's selling for just $85 brand new.

Cooler Master MM711 Gaming Mouse Review
     Mon, Jan 27 2020 | 2:27P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Not that long ago we took a look at Cooler Master's MM710 gaming mouse, which was their first lightweight gaming mouse weighing in at only 53g. It was also my first time really spending a lot of time with a lightweight gaming mouse and since then I've been hooked. While the MM710 was a great mouse it was missing one thing...RGB lighting. Yes I know RGB lighting does not make a difference when it comes to performance, but looking down at my RGB keyboard you sort of want your mouse to have RGB lighting as well. Cooler Master must have felt the same way as they recently introduced the MM711, which adds RGB lighting. This of course adds weight so the MM711 weighs in at 60g. Let's take a look!"

LG 38GL950G 38" UltraGear Review
     Mon, Jan 27 2020 | 2:26P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The LG 38GL950G is the best ultrawide monitor on the market right now. Essentially it takes every feature we got with previous flagship ultrawide displays, and takes it up a notch. The resolution and panel are physically bigger, up to 3840 x 1600, offering a more immersive experience and better for productivity work.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1650 Super WindForce OC

Posted by: STAFF
The Gigabyte GTX 1650 Super WindForce OC is only marginally more expensive than the NVIDIA MSRP, yet includes premium features like fan-stop, a dual-fan thermal solution, overclock out of the box and a backplate. We take a closer look, also to decide how it competes against AMD RX 5500 XT.

AORUS CV27Q 165Hz Gaming Monitor Review
     Mon, Jan 27 2020 | 9:03A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Just about a year ago AORUS presented their first gaming monitor and since then they have released several models. AORUS being Gigabyte’s gaming brand means that these displays are geared specifically towards gamers. In my opinion 1440p high frame rate gaming is really the sweet spot when it comes to performance and image quality. For those looking for a display that can offer that AORUS has the perfect thing in their CV27Q which is a 27-inch 1440p display with a 165 Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, HDR, 90% DCI-P3 color, and a slew of other features. Is this the perfect 1440p display for the gamer out there? Read on as we find out!"

XPG Precog Gaming Headset Review

I'm quite particular about my headsets. They have to fit right, they have to be comfortable, they have to sound great, and most of all they have to be durable. I own headsets that fit those criteria. But that's not why you're here. You're here to find out how XPG's eye-catching new Precog gaming headset stacks up against those incumbents. …

Homematic Shutter Actuator Review
     Sun, Jan 26 2020 | 9:02A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After the Homematic radiator thermostat we are testing another important wireless actuator on Funkyhome.de today and that is the Homematic HM-LC-BI1PBU-FM Wireless Shutter Actuator as a kit as well as a ready-to-use device. If you want to operate your marquee, blind or roller shutter, you can buy a simple roller shutter timer. However, if you want to program it comfortably on your PC or via smartphone app, you should take a look at this wireless shutter actuator from Homematic. Just adjusting the times for holidays or depending on the season is absolutely no problem. You don't need a wireless shutter motor, but simply control this shutter actuator via wireless and thus enable or expand the smart home. We hope you enjoy reading the new review including a new tutorial for Shutter Actuator setup and a new tutorial for shutter programming.

Blade Stealth 13 Mercury White Laptop Review (i7-1065G7)
     Sun, Jan 26 2020 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I almost exclusively take a look at hardcore gaming laptops here at KitGuru, which often come with a large form factor, a dedicated GPU and mediocre battery life. In this review I review a laptop from a well established gaming brand that has taken a different direction. The Razer Blade Stealth 13 is an ultrabook at heart with a 15mm,1.35Kg thin and lightweight chassis. It might lack a dedicated GPU but the Intel Iris graphics should still pack a reasonable punch. Is this the perfect blend of gaming laptop and portable ultrabook or is the £1499.99 asking price too steep?

Samsung's ATIV Book 9-Lite slots in somewhere between mainstream laptop and tablet on steroids, though at first glance it looks unassailably like an Ultrabook.
