    PC Buyer's Guide - Wednesday 23-11-2016 - 04:59

    4K Video Editing PC - November 2016 A few years ago, your PC just couldn't be fast enough for digital video processing. By now every average PC is able to process Standard Definition (PAL 720x576) as well as HD Ready, but technology doesn't stand still.

This resolution and the 'accompanying' codec HEVC / H.265 require seriously powerful hardware. That's the reason why a powerful PC can still really make a differenc... Read more

    Corsair Crystal 570X RGB review: full transparency

    This past year it was a bit quiet on the case front for Corsair. The Carbide 400 and 600 were basically the only new models we saw arrive. Nice as these were, they did leave us somewhat with the impression that Corsair was resting on its laurels. With the new Crystal Series  the brand is demonstrating it has been doing anything but sitting still. The 570X being released today is truly something special, not least because of the fact that it is covered by tempered glass on four sides.

    Antec P9 Window review: back to basics

    Antec has seen some rough times. Once one of the most prominent brands in the computer case, power supplies and cooling market, it has had to relinquish that position to relatively new brands.

After a few attempts to make a statement by introducing a new high-end model, Antec goes back to basics with the P9 Window: simply a solid case with a lot of features at an attractive price point.

    Dell UltraSharp UP2516D review: better than the U2515H?

    Monitors might not always – unfairly of course - appeal to the imagination, but when a monitor keeps the minds engaged, it does so very well. The Dell UltraSharp U2515H was – and is – such a monitor, that has been a favorite with customers for a long time due to the excellent price / performance ratio. However, Dell has another very interesting product: the UltraSharp UP2516D. It has not been tested a lot, and we wanted to change that. Fortunately Dell was able to supply us with a test model.
