  • Buying Advice: Samsung SSD 840 / 840 Pro review: every model tested

    We were very impressed by the 256 GB Samsung 840 Pro when it came out late September. It was the fastest at the time, but OCZ has caught up already with the Vector SSD. The other capacities of the 840 Pro are equally outstanding in terms of performance, all at the top of their class.

  • Buying Advice: OCZ Vector 256GB SSD review: with Indilinx Barefoot 3

    This week OCZ launched a new SSD series under the name Vector. OCZ is aiming at the high-end segment with these, more or less as a follow-up to the existing Vertex 4 series. The interesting part about the new SSD is the controller, because the Indilinx Barefoot 3 has been developed in-house by OCZ.

  • Buying Advice: HP 3005PR USB 3.0 Port Replicator review

    The HP 3005PR is a smart and practical dock, built around the DisplayLink DL3900 chip. It adds quite a few connectors to your computer, with a total of six USB ports (two USB 3.0), audio, gigabit Ethernet, HDMI and DisplayPort. The latter two can even be used at the same time.

  • Buying Advice: Fractal Design Node 605 review: ultimate HTPC case?

    Overall we are in a bit of a quandary regarding the Fractal Design Node 605. It's a stylish chassis with a solid build. It does offer a lot of interior space, and a flexible lay-out. You can fit a full ATX motherboard, a full ATX power supply, and a fairly large graphics card. It makes it a great solution for an allround HTPC that can also handle a demanding video game. However, the question remains how useful it actually is to use ATX-sized components.

  • Buying Advice: Celluon Magic Cube review: laser keyboard

    It still looks and feels like science fiction, but this actually works. With the Magic Cube from Celluon you can create a fully functional keyboard on any surface, that types much better than the mini-keyboards on your average smartphone. The added value for tablets is more limited, because for those there are many more alternatives in terms of external keyboards.

  • Buying Advice: Logitech UE Mobile Boombox review: temple of boom?

    For its small size the Mobile Boombox sounds very good, even with the volume maxed out the sound doesn't distort. The volume doesn't go very high, however, and the sound is very directional. Like most Bluetooth speakers, the Boombox sounds better when you hook it up with the 3.5 mm jack instead of Bluetooth.

  • Buying Advice: Intel SSD 335 240GB review: 20nm entry-level SSD

    If Intel manages to make the SSD 335 significantly more affordable than the Samsung 830 256GB and the Crucial m4 256GB, then it becomes a potentially interesting entry-level SSD option. With current prices the 335 is a dime-a-dozen SSD, nothing more.

  • Buying Advice: ASUS PB278Q review: ASUS goes WQHD

    The ASUS PB278Q is a very stylish WQHD monitor. The colour fidelity is great even with factory settings, and the monitor has a very high contrast and brightness. When you enable overdrive, the response times are good enough for gaming. The energy consumption is low and the features are fairly complete, even if we would have liked to have a USB 3.0 hub. The features that ASUS did add are useful particularly for graphic designers.

  • Buying Advice: Logitech t620 Touch Mouse & t400 Zone Touch Mouse review: made for Windows 8

    Logitech has done a fine job bringing mice to the market that at least partially compensate for the lack of a touch screen on a Windows 8 system. Unless you have just purchased a brand new all-in-one system or notebook with built-in touchscreen, chances are slim to none that you own a touchscreen display that adheres to Microsoft’s requirements. With the t620, Logitech succeeded best in our opinion: this mouse offers serious added functionality for Windows 8, that in our experience you will actually use and enjoy. The t400's extra functions are far more limited, too limited to really consider this a true Windows 8 mouse.
