TP-LINK Touch P5 AC1900 Wi-Fi Gigabit Router Review

Others/Networking Gear by stefan @ 2015-11-28 read/post comments()

The touch-screen Touch P5 employs is not a marketing gimmick but a useful feature since we can perform the initial configuration steps with its help but also access the main configuration areas during operation; in order to avoid unauthorized access, the router will ask us for the administrator password and its desktop area will show as an intro screen the Guest network details. We do also get other useful information displayed on the screen like which Wi-Fi networks are running (2.4GHz or 5GHz or both), the current product operation mode (Router, Access Point or Repeater), time/date and the number of connected stations. read more

Primal Carnage: Extinction Game Review

Others/Miscelleneous by stefan @ 2015-11-26 read/post comments()

The game needs to be checked out by people which are already bored of zombie games and really want to try something different. The graphics feel a bit dated, but if you like this type of game which is quite fast-paced, it won’t really matter this much; also, by using the older DirectX9 platform, even people with slower systems would be able to enjoy the game at maximum settings, without the need to upgrade. Happy Dino Hunting! read more

Corsair VOID Stereo Gaming Headset Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2015-11-14 read/post comments()

While the VOID Stereo is compatible with a wide selection of devices which can output analog audio signal, the quality of the sound is also often influenced by the source. We have connected the headset to our trusty Sound Blaster ZxR sound card and watched some movies, several YouTube clips but also some of the latest TV Shows like Gotham, Grimm, The Walking Dead and so on. The main conclusion is that with the right sound card settings and enhancements, the Stereo is going to sound pretty good but this is also thanks to the 50mm-large Neodymium drivers it incorporates that are also used on the more expensive models. Talking about the microphone, if the sound card from our setup… read more
