Lexar Professional 1000x microSDHC UHS-II 32GB Card Review
     Wed, Dec 07 2016 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 32GB version of the Professional 1000x microSDHC card from Lexar is able to deliver performance as advertised and it can be used with both mainstream and high-end devices as camcorders, action cameras, tablets, smartphones, laptops, drones, PCs and many more. The UHS-II standard is using a different pin-layout, but for backwards compatibility we can see the classic gold-plated contacts in order to operate with UHS-I-compatible devices or even non-UHS-I devices, in the case it will operate at Class 10 speeds."

Lenovo Yoga Book Review: A 2-In-1 With A Trick
     Wed, Dec 07 2016 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lenovo recently released one of the most interesting tablet hybrids in recent memory, just in time for the holidays. The Yoga Book has a digital keyboard that doubles as a sketch pad that even accommodates plain old paper, giving users several ways to draw images or jot notes. In fact, the tablet aspect of the machine is one of the most creative (and fun) concepts we’ve seen this year. The Yoga Book differs from traditional tablet first hybrid devices in several ways, but the most noticeable of these is the permanently attached keyboard, which is a departure from traditional 10-inch tablet form factors. Some tablet-first devices, like the 2016 version of the Dell XPS 12 and the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet, ship with a detachable keyboard. The 2-in-1 format is arguably more functional than a lone slate...

ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe Smartphone Review
     Tue, Dec 06 2016 | 4:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS launched an array of products a few weeks back at its Zenvolution event in New York City. Among them was the gorgeous ZenBook 3 Ultrabook, the convertible Transformer 3, and an assortment of Android-based smartphones that carried ZenFone 3 branding. The four ZenFone 3 models that launched included the entry-level ZenFone 3 Laser, a 5.5” ZenFone 3 Deluxe, a 5.7” ZenFone 3 Deluxe, and a flagship 5.7” ZenFone 3 Deluxe Special Edition, which packs Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 SoC. The specifications, build materials, and pricing for the various ZenFone 3 phones that launched are all different. The ZenFone 3 Laser is a $199 phone, which the 5.7” ZenFone 3 Deluxe Special Edition commands a loft $799. The 5.7” ZenFone 3 Deluxe that we’ll be showing you here, however, hits somewhat of a sweet spot in our opinion. As you’ll see in the spec table below, the 5.7” ZenFone 3 Deluxe is packing some serious heat, which competes favorably with some of today’s best smartphones. But its price is far more palatable...

XCELLON AC & USB Power Bank (PB-1200AC) Review
     Tue, Dec 06 2016 | 1:33P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" Today I review the XCELLON 12,000mAh Rechargeable Power Bank with AC & USB Outlet. The model I'm testing today is PB-1200AC and is capable of powering up electronics up to 65W in power, meaning technically you can power a 13-inch MacBook Pro which consumes 60W. Not only does it have an AC outlet, it also comes with a USB port so this power bank should be able to handle just about anything you throw at it making it extremely versatile."
