    Netgear Nighthawk Pro XR500 review: innovative gaming router Especially at a time when more and more games are 'online only', every gamer knows how important it is to have a reliable and fast connection to the servers of your favorite game.

The Netgear Nighthawk Pro XR500 is a router designed to optimize your gaming experience both hardware- and software-wise. That, at least, is the manufacturer's promise to us to subject him to our usual intensive testing procedure.   Read more

    'Retina' by Iiyama: Iiyama ProLite XB2779QQS 5K monitor review A 5K monitor for 1000 dollars? Iiyama has recently added one to its product range. Internally, the ProLite XB2779QQS features the same panel as the 27 inch Apple iMac with Retina screen. The 5120 x 2880 pixel counting screen offers a very sharp display with 218 ppi. The exterior design is also a bit like an Apple monitor. Is the XB2779QS too good to be true, or a good deal? Read more

    For a long time, memory was one of the most boring components of a PC: you just had to have as much of it as possible; the specific type and speed were of little importance. Now those strips of RAM are suddenly one of the most talked-about parts. It's time for a thorough test. Read more

    Review - Tuesday 04/17/2018 - 11:59 PM

    Dell XPS 13 (9370) review: luxurious workhorse Since Dell renewed its XPS 13 series in 2015 with an inventive design, these laptops have been among the most desirable on the market. The formula: a unique design with extra narrow screen edges, a thin and light casing, fast hardware and a good battery life. With this combination, the XPS 13 still enjoys great popularity, but competition is increasing. That's why Dell showed a 'completely renewed' XPS 13 at the CES last January. If you see this XPS 13 (9370) next to the old model, then at first glance hardly anything seems to have changed. Is the new version convincing? Read more
