Mushkin Reactor SSD Review (1TB) High Value High Capacity SSDs Become the Norm
     Sun, Dec 28 2014 | 4:05P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It has been quite a while since Mushkin has released a new SSD product. Our last Mushkin product review was in 2013 where we ripped apart their Scorpion Deluxe PCIe SSD which utilizes multiple SandForce controller based SSDs on a single PCIe card. Mushkin has been utilizing SandForce controllers in the majority of their SSD product line for the past few years. Mushkin has decided it is time for a bit of a change. Today we are reporting on Mushkin`s latest 2.5 SATA 6Gb/s SSD, the Reactor. This time around, Mushkin has decided to follow suit, as many others have already, and turn to Silicon Motion for a new controller. It is a great change as it has finally enabled them to expand the capacity range of their 2.5 SSD product line to 1TB!"

When I dropped these on my head, the first thing I noticed was the self-adjusting headband. I didn't have to adjust or tweak anything and I love it! It works and feels great. It's very comfortable and is easy on your head as it doesn't clamp down on your ears.

XFX R9 280 Black OC Edition Review
     Sun, Dec 28 2014 | 2:18P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For many enthusiast gamers, the ‘sweet spot’ price point for a graphics card is around the £200 mark. For this kind of cash you can get a solution capable of powering the latest Direct X 11 games at 1080p, and some even at 1600p. We recently had a look at the excellent MSI R9 280 Gaming Edition and the PNY GTX760 XLR8 cards, both priced around £185 inc vat. We had a lot of readers ask about the XFX R9 280 Black Edition, clocked at 1GHZ and available at a very attractive £179.99 from Scan. Is this a good card to shortlist?

ASUS STRIX Pro gaming headset review
     Sun, Dec 28 2014 | 1:18P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS are the largest motherboard manufacturer on the planet. Within their portfolio they also produce graphics cards, chassis, laptops and a wide range of peripherals. Many of these peripherals are grouped together under their Republic of Gamers (ROG) brand – but not the one we are looking at today. Breaking new ground and starting its own collective of gaming peripherals is the STRIX Pro headset. This is the first time we have looked at a STRIX product – a sub brand of the parent company … designed to sell alongside and compliment the existing ROG range of products.

Intel Core i7 4790K Devil’s Canyon Review
     Sun, Dec 28 2014 | 12:18P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our review of the new Intel Core i7 4790K. It has been some time coming even though we have had an Intel sample for some time now. We wanted to take our time and not only review the processor but create a little overclocking guide for our readers buying one. We found a lot of interesting things - including some processor degradation when we pushed it too hard, for too long. All things considered Is this the processor you want to consider for your next system? What about Intel's new NGPTIM? How does it overclock? How is power consumption? How does it rate beside the 4770K?

MSI GS60 2PE Ghost Pro 15.6 inch Laptop Review
     Sun, Dec 28 2014 | 11:18A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we have a very special review for our readers, a look at the world’s slimmest and lightest 15.6 inch Gaming Notebook. The MSI GS60 2PE Ghost Pro is currently available in 3 different flavours – one will ship with a 3K screen, another with Nvidia GTX860M discrete graphics. The model we are looking at today however is the most interesting. It ships with a Core i7 4700HQ CPU, a powerful Nvidia GTX870M GPU, 256GB Solid State Storage in ‘Super Raid’ and a more usable 1080p Anti-Glare eDP Wide View angle panel. MSI pack in 8GB of fast DDR3 memory and another 1TB of mechanical storage to sweeten the deal. At only £1,399 is this one of the most portable, but powerful gaming laptops money can buy?

We all love to play games! It is likely your dream graphics card will be either a GTX 780 Ti or R9 290X. Not fast enough for you? – then how about AMD’s R9 295X2 or Nvidia’s Titan Z?

Back in the real world – and if recent correspondence with our readers is anything to go by then many of you wanted to see which hardware offers a better gaming experience under the £200 ‘sweetspot’ – an R9 280 or a GTX760. So with this in mind we went shopping online.

Corsair Raptor K40 gaming keyboard
     Sun, Dec 28 2014 | 9:18A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mechanical keyboards have been popular with the gaming audience now for some time, but they can often be rather expensive. Corsair recently released their K40 gamer keyboard which uses more mainstream rubber domes but takes a leaf out of the ‘mechanical playbook’ by keeping the switches separate from one another. It also has macro keys and a fully fledged backlighting system. If your budget is limited to £50 is this the keyboard that you need to shortlist?

Posted by: STAFF
"If you're looking for the best Android tablet money can buy, look no further than the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet. With a Tegra K1 processor and NVIDIA's constantly evolving SHIELD platform, which includes such great features like GameStream and Gamepad Mapper, there's a lot to love. In fact, the only tablets that truly surpass the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet are a few high-end tablets running Windows 8.1, but you're also talking about ones that are more than double the price.”
