Saturday, September 8th, 2018

I spent around two months test Driving The Zotac AMP Box Mini. Read on to find out what devices I tested, how they fared and why you might want to consider this enclosure for a one-cable dock setup with your shiny new Thunderbolt 3/USB Type-C laptop. Thunderbolt 3 and USB Type-C are the future, there‚Äôs […]

Sonnet Radeon RX570 eGFX Breakaway Puck

Friday, April 6th, 2018

Since starting my journey with USB Type-C and Thunderbolt 3 there have been two things I’ve wanted to try out; an external GPU, and a portable external GPU. Sonnet cover both of these bases with their eGFX products, but in this article I’ll be taking a look at their portable GPU since they are, as […]

StarTech USB-C To Dual DisplayPort MST Hub

Thursday, January 18th, 2018

I’ve been using the StarTech USB-C to Dual DisplayPort MST Hub since I received it, and I loathe to admit it’s slipped through my coverage cracks because it’s run flawlessly, hooked up to my OWC Thunderbolt 3 dock, running two 27″ monitors for months now. It’s nice to report back on a piece of tech […]

StarTech USB-C Travel AV Adapter Reviewed

Saturday, December 9th, 2017

As laptops get thinner we see more and more ports left by the wayside in the quest for lighter and smaller. Video out ports have been some of the hardest hit, but they’ve always been replaced with something better. Some of the first to go were DVI and VGA, caving in to mini DisplayPort and […]

LG 38UC99-W UltraWide Curved Display Review

Wednesday, June 28th, 2017

The concept of curved displays is not new. They made their debut in Cinema way back in the 1950s where they were touted as countering problems with distortion at the extreme edges of wide cinema video formats. They’ve since arrived in the consumer television market where, frankly, they’re just another non-feature to shift an endless […]

Intel Skull Canyon NUC6i7KYK Review

Monday, June 26th, 2017

I’ve left this review in limbo for over a month, unsure about whether it truly does the Skull Canyon NUC the justice it deserves. The platform is excellent, but can be so many things it’s difficult to give it the depth and breadth of testing I’d like during a short loan period. That said, it […]

Dell S2418H – 24″ HDMI/VGA “InfinityEdge” Monitor Review

Tuesday, June 20th, 2017

With so many 4k, retina and ultra-high-resolution displays on the market, it’s easy to forget that there’s still a healthy demand for the humble 24″, 1080p monitor, which sits upon what I consider to be the intersection of price and quality and lends itself well to building multi-display setups on a budget. Prices for 24″ […]

Plugable USB Type-C DisplayLink Triple Display Dock

Saturday, June 10th, 2017

My quest for docking nirvana has lead me to Plugable, specifically their USB Type-C Triple Display Dock with DisplayLink. Plugable are an approachable team of engineers who, in their own words, focus on better products, better information and better support. My interactions with them seem to confirm this. I’ve been watching and interacting with them […]

Razer Kraken Pro V2

Sunday, January 22nd, 2017

The chunky Kraken Pro V2 aren’t the sort of headphones I’d normally consider, but in all-black the subtle branding, solid construction and surprisingly comfortable fit have won me over. I haven’t tried a set of Razer headphones since the Barracuda HP-1 back in 2007- a sturdy and complicated set of 5.1 surround headphones that were […]

SteelSeries Siberia 350 Video Review

Tuesday, January 17th, 2017

I took a look at the SteelSeries Siberia 350 headphones some 7 months ago. It seems almost unbelievable that so much time has passed since then, and I’m genuinely a little surprised. I was previously avoiding drawing too much attention to the video because my skin was in a terrible state at the time I […]
