Three months of mercilessly pounding this mouse with ARMA 3 has definitely put the Gila to the test. It relies heavily on multiple mouse functions with keyboard modifiers and the Gila doesn’t even bat an eye... It is a great mouse and I would recommend it to anyone enjoys having a lot of functionality right at their fingertips.
While typing the review of a portable hard drive (PHD) roughly a year ago i mentioned that it was the first time that 2.5" drives closed in to 3.5" ones in terms of capacity since back then we had up to 1TB of the first and 4TB of the second (1/4). Unfortunately today things are not just as good and although the same 1/4 ratio still applies the end result is very different since aside the very popular 2TB 2.5" models in the market also available are 8TB 3.5" ones. So yes although the 1/4 ratio remains the same in the end 3.5" drives can still offer up to 6TB more compared to 2.5" ones. Regardless 2TB is still lots of space for data on the go and although some of you may argue that we now even have 1TB USB flash drives the price/capacity ratio gap between those and 2TB PHDs is huge. Today on our test bench we have the latest 2.5" USB 3.0 portable hard drive from Silicon Power the Armor A60 model.
Sometimes i feel that things are moving so fast in the electronics and PC hardware industry that i simply can't afford to look the other way not even for a minute. Take for example NAS devices/servers. It hasn't been more than a month since i last checked all the available models by the 4 leading manufacturers (QNAP, Thecus, ASUSTOR and Synology) and right now there are at least 10 more available ones in their product lines (some already available in retail and some just announced). So that alone means that things must be going even better for all those manufacturers than the last time i checked several sales charts almost half a year ago and with so many people using NAS servers at home for various things such as for file sharing, downloads, video recording and media playback that doesn't really come as a surprise. Today with us we have one of the latest high-end NAS servers to hit the market by QNAP the TurboNAS TS-470 Pro.
August is without doubt the hottest month of the year where i live but this year things got even hotter since during the past 10 days we witnessed the introduction of the redux versions of Metro 2033 and Metro last light, the closed beta of The Crew by Ubisoft and the latest alpha version of Star Citizen by Cloud Imperium (Chris Roberts). So as I’m sure you can all understand we took this great opportunity to test several game peripherals we have here ranging from gaming mice and mousepads to gaming keyboards, headsets and even 4k resolution gaming LCD screens (upcoming reviews). A while back Tt eSPORTS launched the CRONOS a rather unique looking stereo gaming headset aimed towards casual users and gamers on a tight budget and as you can see from the title today we are going to take a closer look at it.
Three to four years ago i used to review standalone hardware media players by a long list of manufacturers all the time but since most modern TVs now come with such media players built-in (well the majority may not be as good as standalone ones but for most consumers they are just fine) that specific segment of the market isn't as "exciting" as it once was (several manufacturers have also ceased operations). Luckily there are still manufacturers out there that spend large amounts of money for the research and development of standalone media players aimed primarily at more demanding consumers who are just not satisfied with current built-in solutions. Dune HD is without doubt one of the most popular media player manufacturers around (if not the most popular) and today we will be taking a look at their latest addition in their product line the Dune HD Connect Universal Media Player.
Although we see new products get launched all the time that doesn't mean that we have to discard old ones and the best possible example i can come up with are cars since i bet there's at least 1 really old car that each and every single one of us likes. So cars like the Pontiac Trans-Am (1982 model) which made its debut appearance in the Knight Rider as K.I.T.T, the Lamborghini Diablo (1991 model), the Ferrari Testarossa (1985 model) or even the Dodge Viper RT/10 (1994 model) which started in another series (called Viper, surprised?) may not have the assortment of electronics and comforts most cars now come with in their standard versions but these are cars that many people would give everything they have to own. Well the same partially applies to electronics and PC hardware as well and so although we've tested many of the latest SSD models to hit the market we decided to take one step backwards and test the Slim S70 240GB SSD model launched by Silicon Power roughly two years ago.
