Razer Blackshark V2 Pro Gaming Wireless Headset Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2020-10-23 read/post comments(0)

Right after connecting the headset to our test PC and selecting our favorite options from within Synapse, we went ahead and listened to some video blogs on YouTube, but also some music clips. The clarity of the voices is noticeable better rendered versus other gaming headsets we have reviewed before, so the Triforce Titanium 50mm drivers are not only for show. When working with the EQ and by enabling more bass from the dedicated filter, the large drivers do make low frequencies sound quite impressive, a beneficial aspect with lots of explosions such as DOOM, Call of Duty games, car racing games and more! read more

Silicon Power GP28 10000mAh Power Bank Presentation

Others/Miscelleneous by stefan @ 2020-10-20 read/post comments(0)

The GP28 power bank comes with a width of 67.6mm, while its length is 142.8mm, allowing it to be fitted inside regular-size bike pouches or other carrying devices with ease. This is an ideal companion to bring with you for charging your smartphone during long trips but also for keeping your action camera in recording mode for hours and hours. The display indicator we feel that is a much better solution than a number of LEDs, so you will always know how much is left in the power bank and make plans regarding when to recharge it and how much. read more

DIATEC FILCO Majestouch Stingray Low Profile Red Switch Tenkeyless Front Face Keyboard Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2020-10-16 read/post comments()

Since we were already familiar with the LP switches from the previously reviewed mechanical keyboards, we did not need any extra time to get accustomed with the Majestouch Stingray Ninja layout. The keys are very responsive but since DIATEC is using an all-plastic exterior chassis unlike the CHERRY MX 10.0, the actuation sound is a bit more perceptible. For cleaning purposes, the low-profile keycaps are even easier to remove than the full-size ones, while the TKL design allows the keyboard to take considerably less space on the desk. read more

Patriot Memory Viper VPR100 RGB PCIe 1TB M.2 SSD Review

Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2020-10-14 read/post comments(0)

If you do own a motherboard without integrated M.2 heatsinks and have a computer case with a glass/plexiglass window, the VPR100 SSD from Viper Gaming can deliver quite a show via its integrated RGB lighting system, which can be also synced with other compatible devices via the included Viper software or the tools from motherboard manufacturers. Since we are dealing with the same controller, the Phison PS5012-E12 controller and Toshiba 3D TLC NAND from the VPN100, the performance is around the same figures, which is in-line with mainstream drives. read more

It offers a rating of 600000 hours MTTF and plenty of capacity of workstations, no matter the workload. read more

Razer Naga Pro MMO/MOBA/FPS Gaming Mouse Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2020-10-06 read/post comments(0)

The all-around Naga Pro mouse from Razer is meant to captivate gamers which prefer different gaming genres by including easy swappable plates for MOBA, MMOs and FPS. The 12-button plate is the one which needs the most time to get used to, but previous owners of the Naga line should be right at home with this one. The latest gaming sensor can deliver up to 20000 DPI and the battery life is quite impressive when using the mouse without the RGB lighting effects; from our testing, with the RGB brightness at 50% we have only noted about 2% battery drain per hour while using the mouse for productivity work but also while playing Serious Sam 4 and Darksburg. read more
