be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900 Review
     Mon, Dec 11 2017 | 5:43P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”So what did I like about this case? Well, pretty much everything. The fit and finish confirm what I have seen with other be quiet! products, which is that no corners are cut to save money. The chassis is robust and the workmanship of the assembly is top-notch. As far as functionality goes, there is a ton of room in the case and by room, I mean the ability to handle multiple fans, liquid cooling, multiple hard drives, and large motherboards. Just about any configuration of fans and radiators you can think of are covered in the Dark Base Pro 900. You can get not one, but two 420mm radiators in there - one at the top and one in front.”

Gigabyte Aero 14 i7-7700HQ and GTX 1050 Ti Notebook Review
     Mon, Dec 11 2017 | 4:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are a lot of impressive notebooks and laptops on the market these days. Of course, when you think slim, powerful and portable, you’re very likely to encounter the Gigabyte Aero range. There have been a few variants of the Aero range over the years, but it looks like their latest may have gotten the balance just right. Equipped with well-proven Intel Core i7-7700HQ, we know it’ll have the processing grunt needed for both work and gaming tasks. Of course, graphics are important too, and there’s an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics card in there too. Of course, that’s not a crazy powerful GPU, but for a notebook, it’ll be a nice balance between power usage and a big performance boost. With a 94 Wh battery, and some optimised hardware choices, the Aero 14 can deliver up to 10 hours of usage; more than enough for a days work in the office.

Lenovo Explorer and Windows Mixed Reality
     Mon, Dec 11 2017 | 4:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”For a general-use headset, the software is not particularly convincing, but give the environment some time, and this will probably improve. For a gaming headset, I am more than satisfied because even with how much is still marked as 'Beta,' so much works, works well, and is fun. This has been a very enjoyable experience for me and I hope it is one many will come to share in the future. I am not sure if MR/VR is going to invade our lives as much as some have predicted, but the Lenovo Explorer can make a worthy attempt, and at $399 with controllers (at both Amazon and the Microsoft Store) does so at a more interesting price than some competitors. It is an impressive device, especially for its MSRP, so if you want to bring MR/VR into your home, this may be the way you want to do it.”

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus
     Mon, Dec 11 2017 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”The graphics are good with some effects really standing out as impressive to me while performance is second-to-none for games in their launch or near-launch state. The story is weak with a number of missed opportunities, in-game spoiled twists, and a failure to connect me to the game world and motivating me to move forward. The gameplay is fun but has missed opportunities and fails to motivate me to keep playing to achieve game-changing weapons and upgrades.”
