Dream Machines DM4 EVO S Gaming Mouse Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2023-03-30 read/post comments(0)

The DM4 EVO S can track at higher DPI values versus its predecessor thanks to the updated sensor and we found the overall experience smooth while trying Diablo 3, Wolcen, Days Gone and Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves on our 2K display. The tracking experience is like the Mountain Makalu 67 which we really enjoyed, and this is complemented by the shoelace cable which is very flexible. read more

Silicon Power Mobile C07 USB 3.2 Gen1 USB Type-C 256GB Flash Drive Review

Storage/Other by stefan @ 2023-03-26 read/post comments(0)

The Marvel C07 USB-C 3.2 Gen1 offers entry-level performance for the supported bus, but it should be fine for most mainstream applications, since it does not heat up at all. We can use it to transfer data from mobile devices supporting OTG as well and can be dedicated as a secondary backup device (besides cloud) when moving large quantities of data; in this case we would recommend going for either the 128 or 256GB variant. read more

CHERRY GENTIX 4K Office Mouse Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2023-03-19 read/post comments(0)

The 70mm width of the GENTIX 4K needs some time for adjustment, but afterwards the mouse is quite comfortable; the buttons are a bit harder to press versus mice with Kailh mechanical switches such as the T.G.A series from AQIRYS, and the USB cable is not as flexible as we have seen with more recent gaming mice. read more

Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus-G NVMe Gen4 2280 2TB SSD Review

Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2023-03-12 read/post comments(0)

The new Rocket 4 Plus-G 2TB performed admirably in our tests, trading punches with the non-G variant while kept blank but outperforming it when filled more than 50%. We did also note a sustained write rate much higher than the drives we have tested before, being able to finish writing over 1.1TB with about 2.7GB/s, which is quite impressive! The offered heatsink really does its job and prevents throttling during intense workloads, for the Rocket 4 Plus-G to always perform at its top. read more

Crucial 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR5-5200 Memory Kit Review

Memory by stefan @ 2023-03-05 read/post comments(0)

The new 5200MHz memory modules from Crucial are a great improvement in terms of overclocking versus their 4800MHz counterparts we have tested before, being able to reach 5800MHz without too much of a hassle, just by increasing the stock voltage to 1.25 and keeping the timings as the manufacturer intended. For compatibility sakes, we are also getting a 4800MHz XMP profile, while AMD users would be happy to know that these feature an EXPO profile as well! read more
