MyDigitalSSD Boost 1TB USB 3.1 Portable SSD Review
     Mon, Dec 05 2016 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The joys of traveling, may it be far or near, can be highly increased when you have all your data with you where you go. Portable storage usually has the downside and that it that it isn’t as fast as internal storage. As such, it can be a pain to wait for the data transfers to finish. Not so for the portable drive that I’m testing today, the MyDigitalSSD Boost. It has both the capacity, up to 1TB, and the speed to blow anything out of the way that other portable drives can offer.

     Mon, Dec 05 2016 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today I’m taking a look at an SSD that has been designed with first-time adopters of the technology in mind, the Plextor S2 in the M.2 2280 form factor. Whether you need a drive for your M.2 enabled desktop system or an ultrabook, the S2G is sure to be a great choice over mechanical storage drives or for those who just want more capacity for a reasonable price.

Philips Brilliance 275P4VYKEB 5K Monitor Review
     Mon, Dec 05 2016 | 9:01A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you haven’t made the upgrade to 4K yet, we’ve got news for you. You’re too late. The cutting edge has moved on already. The Philips Brilliance 275P4VYKEB is one of the first 5K screens to hit the market. Although Apple’s iMac had a 5K version a while back, and Dell got there some time ago too (see the KitGuru review HERE), this is my first look at a 5K screen, and it’s not as expensive as you might think.

Drobo 5C Review @ ocaholic
     Mon, Dec 05 2016 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 5C is a well priced 5 bay DAS from the US American manufacturer Drobo. On the inside there is a quad core SoC making sure there is enough processing power and apart from that there is a USB C interface for quick transfers. Drobo is keen on making their DAS as easy to use as possible. One key feature is the possibility to add disk drives of different sizes to an array.

QNAP TBS-453A-8G-960GB 4-Bay M.2 SSD NASbook Review
     Sun, Dec 04 2016 | 4:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although we all like the concept behind the new TBS-453A NASbook by QNAP quite honestly it feels ahead of its time mainly due to the current pricing of M.2 SSDs and lack of one or more 10GbE ports.

Cooler Master MasterMouse PRO L Review
     Sun, Dec 04 2016 | 4:02P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lefties rejoice, the MasterMouse PRO L is ambidextrous and not the pretend kind that features just two side buttons. It has a total of 8 programmable buttons and features the Storm Tactix Function (Labelled TX) which means you have a second layer of programmable buttons once activated to increase the total to 14 programmable buttons. It has on-board 512kb memory, and a 32bit ARM processor. The MasterMouse PRO L also features 16.7m customisable lighting with some advanced effects that is supported by the flashy new software from Cooler Master.

SteelSeries Rival 500 Optical Mouse Review

Posted by: STAFF
The SteelSeries Rival 500 shows it is possible for hardcore MOBA/MMO players to find a good mouse with a lot of buttons on the side that does not look like it has a phone dial pad stuck to it.

MSI GTX 1050 OC 2G Graphic Card Review
     Sun, Dec 04 2016 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This is the MSI GTX 1050 OC 2G graphic, Nvidia’s low(est?) current generation graphic card you can get your hands on. Most of these graphic cards have limited performance compared to the GTX 1070, RX 480 and even the GTX 1060. Typical with the GeForce xx50 labeled GPUs, its limited performance is good enough for certain titles without the need to upgrade that cheap power supply. Its also acts as a replacement for upgrading graphics provided by the current generation CPUs. As you would expect, Nvidia did compare this with previous two mainstream processors from Intel. The entire explanation of the 14nm GP107 core is covered in the GTX 1050 Ti review.

Cyberpower Infinity X55 VX System Review
     Sun, Dec 04 2016 | 9:03A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Given the psychological effect of being priced under £1000, Cyberpower hopes their Infinity X55 VX will prove an enticing deal as we head towards Christmas. Packing a Core i5 and GTX 1060 6GB, it has the makings of a decent gaming PC. However, before coming to any conclusions we run the Infinity X55 VX through our intensive benchmarking suite, including some of the most demanding games you can play.

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
