Book of Demons
     Sun, Dec 16 2018 | 4:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Book of Demons is a delightful little papercraft dungeon crawler by developers Thing Trunk. It has plenty of full fat features in typical diabolical dungeon crawler style, but uses cards as items and skills, which are used in live instead of turn-based combat. It's also everything I hoped and dreamed for in such a format.

Read on for a practical outlook on what you can expect from your first standing desk, whether you're building something yourself or having one shipped to your door

Logitech Circle 2 Security Camera
     Sun, Dec 16 2018 | 9:03A | Imaging | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"A security camera can really give you some peace of mind, but there are so many to choose from. Do you want to see who is at your front door, or perhaps just spy on your pet? Most cameras can do those things - but the Circle 2 has some other cool features that set it apart from other cameras. One is the range of base mounts that are available. You really have some nice options for mounting. Then there is the Day Brief - a quick, convenient way to browse through a day's motion events. And you get free 24 hours of cloud storage. Need more time? You can subscribe to either a 14-day or 31-day plan if you like."

Posted by: STAFF
"While we have delivered many Linux benchmarks the past number of weeks from the GeForce RTX 2070 and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, up until recently we didn't have access to the RTX 2080 that is the card positioned between those two current consumer Turing graphics cards. In kicking off our RTX 2080 Linux benchmarking, here is a look at the Linux gaming performance compared to an assortment of AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards tested on Ubuntu Linux while in the days ahead will be the OpenCL/CUDA tests and more."

Crucial P1 NVMe 1TB and 500GB @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Dec 16 2018 | 9:01A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Considering Micron is the parent company for Crucial, it may come as a surprise that they hadn’t actually introduced a consumer-focused NVMe drive up until this past month. There was the Ballistix TX3 that they showed off at Computex back in 2016, but it was canceled, making Crucial one of the last companies to jump into the NVMe market. So the name for their NVMe is fitting, they call it the P1. They are using four bit per cell QLC NAND like the Intel 660p and they aren’t aiming for the top end of the market with this drive. This is more of an entry level NVMe drive and I’m excited to see what kind of performance you can expect at a price point that people are more likely to look to spend. So today I’m going to take a look at what makes the drive tick then look at its performance before then seeing where it fits in the market.

Edifier S2000 Pro 2.0 Speaker Review
     Sat, Dec 15 2018 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the years KitGuru has reviewed plenty of Edifier speakers, and more often than not we come away suitably impressed. Today, we are taking a look at the S2000 Pro, a 2.0 speaker system that aims to please with its flat diaphragm tweeters, aluminium cone woofers and plenty of fancy hardware under the hood. Is there enough here to justify the £430 price tag?

HyperX Savage EXO Portable SSD Review
     Sat, Dec 15 2018 | 9:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this review we looked at the HyperX Savage EXO portable SSD. And as the benchmarks show it is clearly the solution everyone should be using when it comes to large data transfers. The 500MB/s reads and writes can clearly take advantage of the USB 3.1 interface and it can handle random data transfers as well.
