1MORE ColorBuds 2 In-Ear TWS Earbuds Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2021-10-18 read/post comments(0)

The 1MORE ColorBuds 2 come with quite a bit of customization options thanks to the dedicated mobile application and instead of opting for a manually customizable EQ, the manufacturer has gone with a more automated solution via SoundID. The paring process is very easy and noted that the range is quite good as well! After listening to some videoclips on YouTube and some podcasts, we did note a clear representation of highs and mids, but do not expect booming bass as with much more expensive models (Hammerhead TWS Pro). read more

Patriot Supersonic Rage Prime 1TB USB 3.2 Gen2 Flash Drive Review

Storage/Other by stefan @ 2021-10-11 read/post comments(0)

Patriot was not joking to include the Supersonic Rage Prime as a member of their Extreme Performance drives, since it really delivers! The read/write performance has topped our charts, while the 1TB storage variant should be enough for most users when transferring data from one computer to another. The plastic capless design is durable and does not need any extra drivers to operate at the advertised speeds, the only condition would be that the computer comes with USB 3.2 Gen2 ports. read more

CORSAIR SABRE RGB PRO WIRELESS CHAMPION SERIES Gaming Mouse Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2021-10-04 read/post comments(0)

After configuring the DPI steps, buttons and polling rate to our own liking, we fired up Marvel’s Avengers, AION, Rogue Company and the remastered Quake. The low weight of only 79g, easily accessible programmable buttons and comfortable shape do transform the SABRE RGB PRO WIRELESS in a very pleasant experience. The high-end sensor is quite overkill for most situations and we do get near-cable latency thanks to the SLIPSTREAM WIRELESS connectivity. read more

Toshiba Canvio Gaming 4TB Portable HDD Review

Storage/HDD by stefan @ 2021-10-01 read/post comments(0)

The Canvio Gaming 4TB offers good performance for an external 2.5’’ 5400RPM drive and is silent during operation as well. The amount of storage should be plenty for a big game collection and while not getting the same access times as on an SSD model, the product can sustain high speed transfer rates for longer versus cheap-QLC based solutions. read more
