Nixeus NX-EDG34S Review

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 three 24-27inch monitors to get the same immersion. With the recently released $599 (USD) Nixeus NX-EDG34S series that is about to change.

Nixeus NXEDG34S intro - Nixeus NX-EDG34S Review

Nixeus has a long and proud tradition of flipping the monitor industries status quo on its head. Be it excellent 1billion color plus professional monitors meant for professionals, or gaming orientated monitors which do not cost an arm and a leg Nixeus has built their reputation on offering the one thing we always look for in a review sample – value. The new NX EDG 34S is no exception.

With an asking price more in line with that of a good 16:9 27-inch monitor, the EDG 34S offers 34-inches of curved gaming goodness. We will go over in greater detail on how they were able to do this and still come in $150 or more less than the competition, but the main take away is that by using Samsung’s latest VA panel, dropping integrated speakers from the build, opting for FreeSync 2 not G-Sync, lowering the color gamut reproduction abilities to 8-bit ‘sRGB’ (16.7 million colors) instead of 10-bit ‘RGB’ (1.073 Billion colors), and opting for 3440x1440P resolution Nixeus’ design team was able to offer a lot of bang for your buck.

The end result of all these tweaks is a monitor that does not cost a fortune but is destined to become a cult classic. It however is not perfect, nor perfectly suited to every potential buyer. By the end of this review we hope you have a clear understanding of the strengths and weakness of this excellent value PC gaming monitor, and how those pros/cons line up with your needs. Then you can decide if this is the right choice for you.

    • As such, the IronWolf 125 Pro may be overkill for your needs and the noticeably lower asking price of the standard model may make it a better overall value. Of course, peace of mind is priceless, so if you can afford one (or more) of these bad boys the IronWolf Pro 960GB model should be on your short, short list. We foresee it becoming a cult classic in experienced homebrew circles. Just as we foresee the standard doing the same for the NAS Appliance and PC storage market. Rest assured, no matter which model you choose you can be confident that they will not be the bottleneck in your NAS device and certainly are worth their asking price… and then some.     Read the full review below:   https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/ironwolf-pro-125-review  
    • The all new Crucial X6 may not win any awards for sheer speed (as it is SATA and not NVMe based) nor for having the lowest asking price in the market… and certainly no awards for being the most robust; but those are about the only major negatives we can think of. This is a rather flexible, predictable, and not overly expensive model that we can see making waves in a corner of the market that has become rather saturated of late. That in and of itself is impressive.   Read the full review below  https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/crucial-x6-2tb-external-ssd-review/  
    • Taken as a whole, if you are not impressed by what Seagate was able to do… you have not been paying attention. It may not be flashy, it arguably is not being marketed optimally, and certainly is not a ‘revolutionary break through’ we have come to expect, but this new gen is a great evolution to an existing foundation. A firm foundation that has been further refined, and this refinement does pay tangible dividends. As such, if you can afford the asking price the Seagate IronWolf Pro 18TB easily justifies its professional moniker and its asking price – and then some. For those that cannot? Fear not, the release of this 18TB capacity model also means eventual price adjustment(s) to the smaller capacity models… and they are not chopped bits of mystery meat either – especially when they get 2TB platter tech in the future.       https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/seagate-ironwolf-pro-18tb-review/
