CORSAIR Scimitar RGB Elite Review
     Sun, Feb 16 2020 | 9:03A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Are you an MMO or MOBA player? Are you tired of your wrist aching over long sessions and fed up of reaching for your skills on your keyboard? Corsair has you covered with the brand-new Scimitar RGB Elite. This mouse is huge, which is definitely not a bad thing, as it houses an adjustable 12 key number pad, some of the best ergonomics we’ve seen on a mouse and a top of the range sensor. We put it to the test to see just how good it really is.

Corsair Scimitar RGB Elite Mouse
     Sat, Feb 15 2020 | 9:03A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Scimitar RGB Elite is the newest entry in Corsair's MMO/MOBA gaming mice line. It still features the same patented 12-button key-slider side panel and the same shape and shell, but comes with an upgraded sensor (PMW3391) as well as improved components and materials.

ADATA SE800 External SSD Review
     Sat, Feb 15 2020 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With how popular content creation has become in recent years, fast reliable storage has never been more important. But, even higher-end boards only have so many M.2 slots, and processors only have so many PCIe lanes available for storage devices. But with the speeds offered by USB 3.2 Gen2 and the versatility of the USB Type-C connector, many companies …

iBUYPOWER Snowblind
     Sat, Feb 15 2020 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
iBUYPOWER is getting into the case market, and the Snowblind is in the middle of a trio of enclosures featuring a see-through LCD screen. You are free to display all kinds of nifty information or cool animations and have the benefit of building your own system instead of buying a full system straight from iBUYPOWER.

Gaming Consoles, the Xbox and PlayStation of Tomorrow
     Sat, Feb 15 2020 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Consoles have come a very long way since the arrival of first-gen machines from Atari and Coleco in the seventies. Even the original PlayStation (1994) and Xbox (2001) look dated compared to today's machines, and that divide will grow even larger once the PS5 and Xbox Series X arrive at the end of 2020. But what about the future?

Cougar Blazer Review
     Fri, Feb 14 2020 | 5:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Open frame cases have become quite popular in recent years. Cougar established themselves as a leader in the space with their Conquer mid-tower case, then followed it up by adding the Blazer mid-tower to their lineup. The Blazer shares the Conquer's plate-and-standoff open frame construction and orange accents but has a slightly more traditional profile. How does the Blazer stack …

Global AIO PC shipments to experience double-digit drops in 1Q20
     Fri, Feb 14 2020 | 5:00P | Business / Industry | PermaLink

Philips TAPH805BK Noise Cancelling Headphones
     Fri, Feb 14 2020 | 4:48P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
My first few experiences with active noise canceling weren’t all that great. It did cut out noise, but I was also often left with a headache or pressure in my ears from it. In the end, I accepted that maybe active noise canceling just didn’t jive for me. Well, this year, with my phones all dropping their headphone jack I opened myself back up to Bluetooth audio devices. When I saw that Philips introduced a new wireless noise-canceling headphone I thought I would be open-minded and try active noise canceling hoping that I might be able to cut out some of the noise when working remotely. ’ve had the Philips TAPH805BK’s on hand and today I am camping out at the dealer waiting on car repairs. What a perfect chance to put them to the test!

Gamers are ditching Radeon graphics cards
     Fri, Feb 14 2020 | 4:46P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD acknowledging the issues is a positive. But working to fix them on a 7 month old product is not. Hopefully at this point they’re throwing every possible resource at this problem and shortly we’ll have a proper fix. Until then, it’s going to be hard to recommend Radeon graphics cards when competing with Nvidia at a similar price to performance ratio.

SteelSeries Rival 3 Wired Gaming Mouse Review
     Fri, Feb 14 2020 | 9:01A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" Due to its low weight and comfortable shape, we have used the mouse without any issues while writing several reviews but also while playing titles such as DOOM, Star Wars: The Old Republic and Bioshock 2. Up to 2560x1440 screen resolution we did not see the need of using higher CPI values than Rival 3 can offer, while the left/right click buttons have a nice feel to it, while being quite silent. Even if we are talking about an entry-level product, we do have the RGB LED lighting system split on three different segments, with different configuration options; SteelSeries does also mention that with this mouse they have used the brightest LEDs to date, measuring around 750 lux.
