Mesh 7EVEN (7600K & GTX 1060) Gaming PC Review
     Fri, Feb 17 2017 | 12:29P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since Intel launched its new Kaby Lake CPUs last month, we have seen a lot of system builders ship out gaming PCs sporting those processors. Mesh are no different, as their 7EVEN Gaming PC comes with an i5-7600K as well as a GTX 1060 to provide the necessary grunt for gaming. With a focus on the system’s aesthetics as well, could this be a winner in the sub-£1500 sector?

Review: MSI GeForce GTX 1060 Aero Mini ITX
     Fri, Feb 17 2017 | 12:25P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We're going from small to smaller with graphics cards, meet the 17cm MSI GeForce GTX 1060 Aero Mini ITX that MSI releases today. The dual-slot graphics card is tiny, really tiny yet manages to be a very silent graphics card that offers pretty respectable gaming performance up-to a resolution of 2560x1440. MSI fitted this model with 6GB of graphics memory, and yes it is even tweaked a bit for you.

Damson Cisor Mini Portable Bluetooth Speaker
     Fri, Feb 17 2017 | 12:25P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The concept is simple. You have a powerful driver that, while not loud on its own, passes vibration on to whatever surface you stick it against, turning the larger surface into a large speaker. Obviously different surfaces vibrate at different rates, and thus will sound different. But when you find that proper surface (think solid wood or thicker metal), man oh man! You’ve got yourself a party...

Logitech G533 Wireless Headset @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Feb 17 2017 | 12:16P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As someone who prefers good audio quality but also can’t stand being attached to my desk with a wire, I have been on the hunt for the perfect wireless headset for a long time now. I’ve run into a few that I liked and even used for a while but they all seem to have their flaws that become obvious over time. The Logitech G930 for example. I tested it back in 2013 and it performed really well, but I ran into issues trying to use it at LAN events and later it even gave me issues in my office when running other wireless devices. Well, I’m back at it again, this time with Logitech’s G533. In a lot of ways, it is similar to the old G930 and Logitech was happy to tell me about the improvements in wireless performance and even improvements in gaming audio performance, but let’s take a closer look and see what it has going on.

MSI GE72 7RE Apache Pro Laptop Review

Posted by: STAFF
You may find the model name of the MSI GE72 7RE Apache Pro looks familiar however the devil lies in the detail. It’s the 7RE suffix you need to focus on as the previous MSI GE72VR 6RF has been updated from Intel Skylake CPU and GTX 1060 graphics to Kaby Lake and GTX 1050Ti graphics.

NVIDIA SHIELD TV (2017) Review: Smart Home, 4K HDR, And Game Streaming
     Fri, Feb 17 2017 | 9:02A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA announced an updated SHIELD TV bundle back at the Consumer Electronics Show, which offers a host of new features thanks to some fresh hardware and an Android Nougat based OS upgrade. The updated SHIELD TV, however, isn’t totally new. Internally, the device was still packing NVIDIA’s Tegra X1 SoC like the original, which, even after a couple of years on the market, is still an exceptionally strong performer. The new SHIELD TV also has the same memory and base storage configurations, and the SHIELD Remote is similar too. However, NVIDIA significantly shrunk down the chassis by eliminating accommodations for an internal hard drive, and lopped the micro-SD expansion slot off the machine as well, though you still get USB 3 connectivity for storage expansion. NVIDIA did, however, also developed a new wireless controller for the SHIELD that offers exceptional battery life and – among other things – a built in near-field microphone to help leverage its Google Assistant integration that is also now a part of the NVIDIA SHIELD TV experience. New applications, including Amazon Video complete with 4K UHD HDR support, tons of games, and additional streaming capabilities have been brought to the platform as well...
