 [LATEST]  Netgear Orbi AC3000 Tri-Band Router Review
     Sat, Dec 10 2016 | 4:03P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Now that decent WiFi is up there with running water, electricity and breathable air where home and business requirements are concerned, even the latest WLAN standards can be a little deficient. Serving an entire house, or multi-room small business, with a single WiFi router can often be problematic.

 [LATEST]  D-Link DIR-885L/R AC3150 Ultra Wi-Fi Router
     Sat, Dec 10 2016 | 4:02P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I like the recent trend to make higher-end Wi-Fi routers look interesting. Stepping away from the old-school canister or plain shell with antenna is especially pleasing. No one has embraced this more fully than D-Link, with the DIR-855L/R being one of the latest crop of performance routers. Sporting a dual-core 1.4GHz Broadcom BCM4709C0 SoC, this 4x4 stream AC3150 (1000Mbps 2.4GHz + 2167Mbps 5GHz) class Wave2 802.11AC with MU-MIMO should provide excellent performance for most homes and users, and at $280 SRP ($200 street), it won’t break the bank either.

We test and review the new Asus X99 DeLuxe II motherboard, you can pair it with Haswell-E and Broadwell-E series processors and get your gaming groove on to 10-cores processors.

 [LATEST]  Razer DeathAdder Elite Gaming Mouse Review
     Sat, Dec 10 2016 | 4:00P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
DeathAdder Elite is one of the latest Razer mice which was built upon an already successful model and adds a few upgrades like two extra programmable buttons, a revised PTFE bottom layer size/placement but also an upgraded 5G sensor which can track up to 16000 DPI. The mouse is accompanied by the unified Synapse software which can load or save previously saved profiles from the cloud and also helps working with the Chroma LED lighting."

Corsair Crystal Series 570X RGB Review
     Sat, Dec 10 2016 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Crystal Series is an entirely new series of cases from Corsair and so far the 570X is the flagship. Next to side panels, front and top which have been made from tempered glass, there is integrated RGB lighting, that's been realized using Corsair's RGB fans and a separate controller. At a first glance there also is a clean interior and apparently we're rather curious to find out whether this case is capable of convincing us or not.

Linksys LRT214 Business Gigabit VPN Router Review
     Sat, Dec 10 2016 | 9:01A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A router is just a small box with a couple of antennas allowing you to surf and game online for home users, but if you’re a business, then it’s a completely different story. For a business, the router is the gateway to and from the world and it has to be treated as such. Today I’m taking a closer look at Linksys’ LRT214 which is a business Gigabit VPN router. There’s also an alternate model of this router called the LRT224 which features dual-WAN connectivity.

Gigabyte AORUS X7 DT v6 GTX 1080 Gaming Laptop Review
     Sat, Dec 10 2016 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte’s AORUS brand is reserved for gaming-orientated products which offer a premium experience without any compromises. This division is going to become a crucial part of the company’s future plans and designed to take on similar initiatives from other brands like ASUS’ ROG series. Honestly, the AORUS name wasn’t integrated into Gigabyte’s line-up particularly well and needed to be deployed in every department including motherboards, laptops, graphics cards and much more. Thankfully, it appears this strategy is beginning to take shape and I’m looking forward to seeing how the AORUS range develops over time.

     Fri, Dec 09 2016 | 4:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
