About Me

  1. In the recent past we have looked at a couple BlueTooth enabled earbuds and walked away fairly impressed with the state of the industry. In just a few short years BT earbuds have gone from (at best) mediocrity to actually being viable options. A relatively newcomer to the scene is the Chinese based TriBit whose intention is to not only push the boundaries of this quickly developing market niche, but actually make wireless earbuds that can outperform similarly priced wired earbuds – and thus their moto of “Unleash the True Sound”. Their latest addition to their lineup is the $55 USD Flybuds and
  2. Very recently we took a close look at the Silicon Power Blast Plug BP81 series of Bluetooth enabled earbuds and walked away impressed with the state of the wireless industry. While far from perfect their combination of ease of use, durability, reasonably good clarity, and at a very reasonable price made for a very good argument in their favor. Today we are going to look at the $37 Blast Plug BP82 series to see what has and has not changed. On the surface, these two sets of earbuds do share a few things in common. The most obvious is both are making use of the same BT 5 bus and the same un
  3. If you talk to a hundred video or photography professionals every single one will say the same thing: never trust your precious images/videos on the cards you shot them on. Get them off as soon as you can. Doing otherwise just invites Mr. Murphy to your photo/video shoot… and when Murphy shows up that ‘perfect’ shot will be the one to disappear. This is why some form of On Set Storage is in nearly every single professional’s equipment bag. The downside is to get the precious data off SD/QXD/etc. card as soon as possible requires a couple more pieces of equipment. Namely a card reader and a lap
  4. It is always highly interesting to see how different companies overcome the same problem. We are of course referring to the fact that NVMe M.2 drives run hot, and when used in an external enclosure they run even hotter. ‘Sadly’ the sheer performance NVMe drives offer is unmatched and is the only way to get a single drive capable of easily saturating a USB 3.1 Gen 2 bus. Recently we looked at Crucial’s X8 and saw how they overcame this issue (they went with a ‘single sided everything’ solution). Today we will be looking at LaCie and their Rugged SSD series to see how they have solved this issue
  5. It seems that being a PC gaming enthusiast has become one rather expensive hobby as of late. Ever since the mining craze video card costs have sky rocketed, and so too has other essential components. Take for example the typical ‘gaming’ orientated monitor. No doubt it is an essential piece of equipment… but the moment you add the word ‘gaming’ to your list of requirements the cost quickly balloons. Nowadays there really seem to be two camps of PC gaming enthusiasts: those that can afford mega-sized monitors which promise levels of immersion once only dreamed about… and those that use two or t
  6. Almost since their inception portable Flash based solid state storage devices have fallen into roughly one of two camps: cheap yet ultra-portable drives that are known to be slowpokes, and those that may be larger and cost noticeably more per GB but are USB bus saturating speedsters. Recently we took a long hard look at the Crucial X8 series and walked away very impressed with what it had to offer. That model did indeed blur the lines between the two camps and made it a lot easier to have 1TB worth of portable performance in your pocket. Seagate however begs to differ on what it takes to bridg
  7. As time marches on, more and more mainstream buyers are starting to opt for multiple Solid-State Drive based storage solutions instead of the more ‘classic’ SSD+HDD configuration. This in turn has created a demand for SSD’s that are fast enough, large enough, and above all else inexpensive enough to serve as secondary storage devices. For those with a need for speed these secondary storage orientated devices are NVMe and not SATA based. NVMe options may typically cost noticeably more, but the performance benefits are tangible to say the least. We say ‘typically’ as recently Silicon Power becam
  8. Gigabyte may not be as well known for their Solid-State Drives as their video card or motherboard models, they indeed been offering entry and mainstream SSDs for quite some time now. In the past they were SATA based only storage solutions, but their offerings now run the gamut from entry level SATA based models (the UD series) to mainstream NVME (Aorus RGB NVME) to even cutting edge PCIe 4.0 based models (Aorus NVME 4.0) models. Today we will be paying careful attention to their middle option. To be precise we will be putting the Aorus RGB 256GB capacity model under the microscope. Before
