Wasabi review

A relative newcomer to the cloud storage market, Wasabi was founded by David Friend and Jeff Flowers, the creative team behind Carbonite. Wasabi is the fifth business the pair has formed together, and the growth of this company from its launch in May 2017 has been spectacular. Wasabi Wasabi at Amazon for £0.01 Read more: [...]

Tresorit review

Each supplier of cloud storage makes a series of choices about the service they provide and how it differs from what others are doing. Tresorit is a Swiss-based business were the focus was placed on two aspects that it considered important to its customers, security and simplicity. But, can it deliver those things in a [...]

Nextcloud 15 review

Picking a cloud service can be something of a lottery. The big players tend to offer a solution that locks you into their services but offer an attractive price to be shackled. And, the smaller operations tend to lack the functionality that business invariably needs. Nextcloud isn’t like either of these stereotypical cloud storage offerings, [...]

SecureData SecureDrive BT 1TB external SSD review

When we first came across SecureData’s range of secure storage devices, they stood out from the competition thanks to the use of Bluetooth connectivity and a smartphone to lock (or unlock) the data. This technique carries its own pros and cons, which we explored back in October 2018 in our review of the hard drive [...]

Egnyte Connect review

Egnyte is a privately held company based out of Mountain View in California that was started in 2007 by a small team of individuals backed by venture capitalists. The platform it developed is squarely aimed at Business customers looking for something more sophisticated than just a cloud backup and sharing facility. Egnyte Connect is the [...]

G-Technology G-Drive mobile USB-C 2TB portable hard disk drive review

G-Technology is a subsidiary of WDC (Western Digital Corporation), one of the largest hard disk drive manufacturers, alongside WD, Sandisk, Upthere. We’ve reviewed G-Tech products in the past including its 500GB external portable SSD, with its 4TB external desktop hard drive being the most recent subject of our scrutiny. Silicon Power Bolt B10 512GB at [...]

WD My Passport Ultra 4TB portable hard disk drive (2019) review

It doesn’t help that WD keeps the same names for its hard disk drive ranges even if new models are released almost every year. Take the My Passport Ultra, for example: TechRadar first reviewed it in 2013, and back then, it had a different design and a much smaller capacity. The 2019 version is a [...]

Samsung 970 Evo Plus review

We never expected to see a new NVMe solid-state drive (SSD) from Samsung this soon – especially with the 970 Evo and 970 Pro launching just last April – but here we are looking at the new Samsung 970 Evo Plus. While it might seem like a minor upgrade unworthy of a fully numbered sequel, [...]

WD Black SN750 NVMe SSD review

The previous WD Black NVMe SSD was basically the drive to break Samsung’s unbreakable lead in the solid-state storage world. Fast forward to the start of this year, and the market has become much more diverse with excellent options from Corsair, Adata and even Seagate – it’s almost become a little hard to stand out. [...]

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super review

Nvidia Turing has been around for a little over a year now, and the lineup is now significantly larger than it was at launch. The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super is the follow-up to the massively successful GTX 1660 that found its way into many budget gaming PCs, thanks to its amazing price-to-performance ratio. That [...]

Adata SE800 waterproof external SSD review

Adata has been a prolific external storage vendor in a market dominated by Samsung and WDC with its three brands SandDisk, G-Technology and WD. These two account for about 90 per cent of the global external SSD market accounting to one source leaving only scraps to the smaller vendors. Despite not being vertically integrated, the [...]

AMD Ryzen 5 3600 review

AMD’s Ryzen 5 3600 replaces 2018’s Ryzen 5 2600, bringing even more performance and options to the mid-range CPU market. It sits just below the Ryzen 5 3600X, which is essentially a slightly faster version of the same processor. Where the Ryzen 5 3600 shines is the the frugal gamers desktop. In general, it has [...]

AMD Ryzen 7 3700X review

AMD Ryzen 3rd Generation is finally here, and the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X might just be the poster child for what this generation of processors has in store for consumers. Sure, it might have stuck with the 8-core, 16-thread setup, which it inherited from its predecessor, the Ryzen 7 2700X. However, with the new 7nm [...]

PNY Pro Elite 1TB External SSD review

If there’s one niche market where solid state drives absolutely trounce their spinning counterparts, it is that of portable external storage where a combination of nimbleness, ruggedness, low power consumption and falling prices have made them unavoidable and in many cases, a no-brainer. Enter PNY, a company with a diverse portfolio that goes from car [...]

OWC Envoy Pro EX Thunderbolt 3 1TB portable SSD (2019) review

Update (September 2019): OWC has slashed the price of the 1TB version of this drive to only $280 making it even better value. Thunderbolt 3 is quietly establishing itself as the preferred interface for top-of-the-range devices (although we hope it doesn’t suffer the same fate as Firewire). Its physical compatibility with USB Type-C means that [...]

ioSafe Solo Hawk waterproof rugged SSD review

External hard disk drives fall into two categories; those that are rugged and those that aren’t. For those that look for even more, there’s the ultra rugged category where ioSafe is one of the major players. It has just launched its Solo Hawk Rugged SSD, a storage device that comes with a hefty price tag [...]

AMD Ryzen 5 3600X review

The AMD Ryzen 5 3600X takes the spot of the Ryzen 5 2600X, already one of the best processors on the market for gaming. However, it takes that budget-minded stage of performance to another level, with increased IPC (instructions per clock) performance, along with a higher clock speed – while keeping at the same price [...]

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti review

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is an exceptionally powerful graphics card that will exceed 60 fps in 4K in all the best PC games without blinking. Not only is it dramatically more powerful than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti that preceded it, but it’s also the best graphics card for pushing the boundaries [...]

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 review

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 is the next-generation Turing flagship from Team Green, following in the footsteps of previous xx80 cards, like the GTX 1080 and 980. The Nvidia RTX 2080 hits the sweet spot of high performance, and fully justifies the steep price tag. This high-end graphics card does have a higher price of [...]

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 review

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti might be the flagships of the latest Turing set of graphics cards, but their prices keep them out of the reach of most PC gamers. Naturally, we expect the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 will be even more popular as the only graphics card with real-time ray-tracing [...]

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 review

Curious about the Nvidia RTX 2060? With every new generation of Nvidia graphics cards, there’s always one that gets a massive power bump over its predecessors. Last time, it was the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070. This time, it’s the Nvidia RTX 2060, and it does a lot with its time in the sun. Nvidia news [...]

AMD Radeon VII review

The entire computing world has been waiting with bated breath for something like the AMD Radeon VII, Team Red’s return to high-end desktop graphics. Thankfully, the days of the 7nm GPU are finally upon us, with more to come soon as the AMD Navi cards are slated for release on July 7. AMD news AMD [...]

Amazon Drive cloud storage review

Along with selling, delivering and its TV offerings (Echo, Alexa), Amazon also has a thriving enterprise-level storage solution known as AWS. However, they also have a more personal cloud storage solution, previously called Amazon Cloud Drive, and now renamed Amazon Drive. Under its previous persona, it received a fair amount of abuse for missing features [...]

Micron c200 1TB microSD UHS-I card review

The Micron C200 was announced at MWC 2019 in Barcelona; it is, with the SanDisk 1TB Extreme microSDXC UHS-I, the only other 1TB microSD card currently on the market and like its rival, the C200, sports the three important ratings that attests of its top end status: A2, U3 and V30. At the time of [...]

Intel Core i9-9900K review

The new Intel Core i9-9900K is the step forward in mainstream processors (CPUs) we’ve been waiting for. It’s the CPU we hoped Intel would make ever since AMD Ryzen processors one-upped the company with high-core counts and massive multi-threading performance. As Intel’s first-ever mainstream Core i9 chip, the Intel Core i9-9900K comes equipped with eight-cores, [...]

OWC Express 4M2 + Aura P12 Thunderbolt 3 external DAS Combo review

Falling prices of solid state drives have made it more alluring for content creators to build their own direct attached storage (NAS) for demanding video editing workflows. Gone are the days of Raptors hard disk drive spinning at 15,000RPM; they’re now replaced by M2. NVMe SSD devices that are faster, more reliable, smaller and far [...]

G-Technology ArmorATD 2TB ruggedised hard drive review

Rugged storage, as a market, has had something of a boom over the past two years, fuelled partly by remote workers looking to move away from desk but also by the colossal amount of data generated by content creators who prefer to work in the field rather than, well, tethered to a table. G-Technology is [...]

Degoo review

Cloud storage has entered a much more competitive phase in the past few years, with the domination of the larger providers being challenged by smaller and more agile competitors. One of these is Degoo, a Swedish business that only began in 2012 but has already attracted 15 million users. What makes another 20,000 people a [...]

Adata SD600Q ruggedized external SSD review

Adata is probably one of the most prolific storage vendors on the market, which is very surprising given that it doesn’t produce any components by itself and has to rely on third-parties for parts. Yet over the past few years, we have seen a steady stream of Adata devices that have offered compelling price/performance ratios. [...]

Arq Backup review

Any disaster recovery plan must consider the possibility of total loss, as happens when a building containing a computer is destroyed by fire, flood or all the equipment is stolen. In that scenario, the best line of defence is to have all the critical documents and data be replicated somewhere else that isn’t impacted, from [...]

Razer Blade Advanced 15 Optical hands-on review: Not mechanical, but close

Gaming laptops have become thinner, lighter, and more powerful, but one core area has not changed much over the years. The keyboard. The most recent update to the Razer Blade Advanced 15 comes with an optical keyboard, featuring the same technology from Razer’s best-selling Hunstman Elite mechanical keyboard. Could we finally get the accuracy and [...]

Microsoft Stores can’t upgrade Surface Laptop 3 SSDs — for now

The SSD inside Microsoft’s new Surface Laptop 3 is replaceable but not upgradable. That’s the current story given by Microsoft Store service agents, though they indicate in-store upgrades may be possible in the future. The Surface Laptop 3 is now available in multiple markets. Panos Panay, chief product officer of Microsoft devices, initially revealed the [...]

The best wireless keyboards for 2019

William Harrel/Digital Trends Tablets and laptops are getting more advanced all the time, but our input options often have a hard time keeping up. If you want to get down to business, a wireless keyboard can be a great way to maintain portability without sacrificing typing comfort and accuracy. Our top pick is the Logitech [...]

The best computer desks for 2019

Yes, your computer is important — but so is its home. When was the last time you considered getting a new computer desk? Whether you are a serious gamer looking for an upgrade or just moved into a new space, it’s probably time you opt for a desk that doesn’t look like an Ikea reject. [...]
