FiiO BTR3 Bluetooth Headphone Amp Review

INTRODUCTION

fiio btr3 a

   The market may be filled with many good wireless earphones and the rather new and compact true wireless models but the truth of the matter is that almost all of the high-end models aimed towards demanding audiophiles are still wired which means that if you'd like to use one such model wirelessly you will need to pair it with a audiophile grade bluetooth transmitter/receiver. Still it's not easy to pair an audiophile level set of earphones with an equally good bluetooth transmitter/receiver mainly because there aren't really that many in the market to begin with. FiiO is well aware of this so last year they released their top of the line BTR3 Bluetooth Headphone Amp (shortly after their mid-end BTR1K) which was aimed towards demanding consumers and audiophiles alike and today we decided to check it out and see just how good it really is.

CRYORIG H7 Plus CPU Cooler Review

INTRODUCTION

 

 

cryorig h7 plus a

   As we've pointed numerous times already in past CPU Air Cooler reviews the best way to improve cooling efficiency on a single fan U-type (tower) or C-Type (top-down) model is to add yet a second fan in push and pull configuration. Of course, adding more and/or larger fins to increase surface area and more and/or larger heatpipes for faster heat transfer are also valid ways (not to mention noiseless) to improve cooling efficiency but those can only be applied to new products (thus increased development costs) and not already released ones. The most recent example of this is the dual-fan H7 Plus CPU Cooler by CRYORIG which is based on none other than the single-fan H7 model released back in 2015 (review here) and today we decided to also check it out to see just how much of a temperature reduction a 2nd fan can offer.

DIYPC Vanguard-RGB Case Review

Introduction

DIYPC Vanguard RGB

In the era of tempered glass and RGB, it seems like every manufacturer has created its own version of a case with these features. This is no different for DIYPC with its Vanguard RGB chassis which sports three 4mm tempered glass panels and includes four of their 120mm RGB fans. In addition to its thick tempered glass panels, Vanguard RGB also features a solid 0.8mm steel frame, 2-piece PSU shroud and an included fan hub with support for up to 7 fans. Even with the addition like the fan hub and pre-installed RGB fans, the DIYPC Vanguard still comes in at an affordable MSRP of $129.99.

ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ 27″ 4K 144hz G-Sync HDR Monitor Review

PC gamers nowadays are currently divided when it comes to choosing their monitors: do they opt for a 4K Ultra HD experience at 60hz or do they go for a high refresh rate at a lower resolution? This has been a dilemma for many high-performance system owners and many have been waiting for monitor makers to finally bridge this gap and deliver the next stage in gaming desktop display. There are many reasons why gamers would want such a combination of display quality and fidelity despite its relatively pricey acquisition cost as well the system required to drive it. Still, its an eventuality that want now and while it sits in the premium, luxury segment of the market, its still a peek into the future. But you can have it right now thanks to ASUS and their new ROG Swift PG27UQ gaming monitor.

Patriot Viper RGB 16GB DDR4-4133 Memory Kit Review

Patriot was one of those household names back in the days where they’d usually hold their own neck-to-neck against other top-tier brands. Fast forward to modern times and they’ve been focusing on other things but they never forgot who they are. Patriot has been a performance brand and their Viper line has been the pinnacle of performance for the RAM department. Its seen various forms over the years but today sees perhaps the most defined change in Patriot Viper history. Today we take a look at the Patriot Viper RGB DDR4 sticks.

SEREE HD Video Camera Review

Finding a good camera is essential if you create any content online. Whether it’s photos or videos for a blog or YouTube channel, finding one that works well is really important. For years, I’ve been filming videos on my iPhone, so being able to try out this SEREE HD video camera and put it to the test for all of my content creation has been a lot of fun. As a camera that won’t break the bank, you’re able to start filming HD videos as soon as you open the camera out of the box (all you need is an sd card). The camera, microphone, and the remote worked well, but if you have a Mac computer, you’ll need to download software to format the footage to use in any editing program.

GOOGLE PIXEL 3A XL IM TEST: EIN GELUNGENER SCHRITT IN DIE MITTELKLASSE?

Im Herbst wurde das Google Pixel 3 (XL) vorgestellt, die dritte Generation der Pixel-Smartphones. Ein halbes Jahr später folgt nun die abgespeckte Variante in Form des Google Pixel 3a XL, das jedoch auch einige Features der Highend-Modelle bieten soll. Ein Beispiel ist da die Kamera, die zwar nur auf einem Sensor basiert, aber sehr mit dem Faktor „Computational Photography“ punkten soll. Welche Hardware im Pixel 3a XL steckt und wie sich das Smartphone gegenüber der Konkurrenz im Mittelklasse-Sektor schlägt, erfahrt ihr in diesem Testbericht!

Übersicht

Google stellt das Pixel 3a sowohl in einer Standard-Variante als auch eine XL-Version vor, ähnlich zum bisherigen Google Pixel 3. Die beiden Modelle unterscheiden sich primär in der Größe und der Akkukapazität, die restliche Ausstattung ist identisch. Preislich startet die Pixel 3a-Serie bei 399 Euro (UVP), zum Test haben wir das Google Pixel 3a XL in der Farbe“Just Black“ erhalten.

Design & Verarbeitung

Das Google Pixel 3a XL zeichnet sich durch ein sehr schlichtes Design aus, das besonders auf der Rückseite kaum vom Google Pixel 3 XL zu unterscheiden ist. Der obere Teil im Bereich der Kamera ist glänzend gehalten, während der Rest der Rückseite mit einem „Frosting“, also einer mattschwarzen Beschichtung versehen ist. Das Duo aus Glanz und Matt ist besonders beim schwarzen Modell sehr auffällig, die weiße Variante gibt den Effekt nicht so deutlich wieder.

TechPowerUp Lian Li Lancool One Digital Review

If you have seen too many RGB-equipped cases out there, you become weary when reading that an enclosure has jumped on that bandwagon. Thus, when I read about the Lian Li Lancool One Digital offering such a component, it worried me initially as the case holds great importance by being the first Lancool case in a very long time. Luckily, Lian Li has done an excellent job at designing and embedding the LEDs in a fashion that adds to the case instead of detracting from it.

That said, the Lancool One Digital also feels sturdy even though Lian Li has chosen to go with a very traditional material mix by modern standards, consisting of a steel body, glass side panel, and plastic top and front. Even without considering the thick brushed aluminium front, the Lancool One Digital makes a sturdy impression.
