Dream Machines DM1 FPS Gaming Mouse Review

DM1 FPS On the Surface The first thing you’ll notice about the DM1 FPS is that there is no spectacle. Nothing inherently screams, “Look at me! I’m clearly for hardcore gamers.” Gaming mice scarcely fit in a professional environment. Underneath that shell, however, is a suspiciously well performing mouse.

NZXT E850 Digital Monitoring PSU Review

It’s Been a Long Time NZXT used to be a familiar name in the PSU world. Even though the company was, and still is known for cases, the Hale series stirred up some attention. That was quite a few years ago however, so seeing the new E850 come to market was a decent surprise. The unit has some strong bragging rights, with Seasonic as the OEM, and a new feature that feels quite unique to the industry. First, a quick word from NZXT, then we’ll move right over to the unit.

Ballistix Sport AT RAM Review

But Why is the RGB Gone? It seems like the only new RAM is RGB RAM. In the midst of this, Ballistix makes the bold move to release “normal” memory. The new Sport AT modules arrive with a simplistic design, while partnering with Asus TUF branding. In theory, we should be able to expect some impressive performance. We’ll find that out soon, right after a quick word from Ballistix.

Arctic Alpine 12 Passive – A Silent CPU Cooler Review

Do you need a silent CPU cooler and happen to have a <45w TDP CPU? The ARCTIC Alpine 12 Passive could be just what you're after at its low price point of just $13! Check out our review to find out more.

Samsung MicroSD Pro Endurance 128GB Card Review

Solid State Reliability Samsung has always had a good reputation for reliability. Since the Pro Endurance is leaning heavily on longevity, it’s a good thing that it has a strong name behind it. However, this microSD card isn’t going to take the crown in the speed competition. The real question we want to answer is how well this card holds up to its specs, and how well it costs in comparison to the market. We want to give a huge thank you to Samsung for providing the sample in this review.

ViewSonic XG2701 Gaming Monitor Review

Introduction Is Virtual Reality supposed to be the gold standard of immersion? VR is nice, but the reality for most of us is that we depend on a monitor for our computing experience above anything else. The good news is that panel technology is improving immensely, on top of being more affordable. The ViewSonic XG2701 gives gaming a huge improvement with a 144 Hz refresh rate and FreeSync technology. On the other hand, we still have to put up with a TN panel. The real question is how well ViewSonic does with the other feature to help offset the aging panel technology on this model. We’ll address that soon, right after a statement from the company.
