Alienware m17 R4 laptop review: Burning up into the atmosphere

85% Alienware m17 R4 laptop review: Burning up into the atmosphere

Hot contender. The Alienware m17 R4 is the latest addition to Alienware's m17 lineup. Compared to the m17 R3, there's a brand new RTX 3000 graphics card, but the CPU is identical to the predecessor's top configuration. The new 360 Hz display is also currently one of the fastest on the market.

Making the GP65 look outdated. MSI kicked off 2021 with a whole lineup of refreshed laptops sporting GeForce RTX 30 GPUs. Instead of just a simple internal update, however, many of these new models have brand new chassis designs and the GP66 is looking like the best one yet.

realme 8 Pro

82% Realme 8 Pro smartphone review - Lightweight 300-Euro-phone without 5G

In the megapixel frenzy. Realme installs a 108-megapixel camera in its 8 Pro and enables fancy photo effects like tilt-shift and pictures of the starry night sky. However, the latest cellular standard is missing, which limits the future viability somewhat.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro smartphone review

84% Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro smartphone review: Dream display for anti-5G users at a bargain price

Mid-range game changer. A 120 Hz OLED panel in a mid-range phone with a powerful Snapdragon SoC and a 108 MP camera for less than 280 Euros (~$336)? Not too long ago, these were features of a premium smartphone. Our review of the Xiaomi smartphone reveals how the affordable Redmi Note 10 Pro fares apart from the 6.67-inch AMOLED Dot display.

Genesis Thor 400 RGB mechanical keyboard hands-on review (Source: Own)

Genesis Thor 400 RGB mechanical keyboard hands-on: Everything you'd expect for roughly US$100

The Genesis Thor 400 RGB is a full-size programmable mechanical keyboard that comes with a detachable palm rest. It uses Kailh Red switches and its set of features includes both preset and customizable RGB lighting settings, n-key rollover, configurable macro keys, and more. The backlight/volume knob's placement seems like the only drawback.

X1 Tablet, but better. After years of ThinkPad tablet abstinence, Lenovo returns to the 2-in-1 market with the new Lenovo ThinkPad X12 Detachable Gen 1. The Lenovo X12 Tablet manages to impress us in our test - it turns out to be a worthy competitor to the Microsoft Surface Pro 7.

OnePlus Watch in review: There are still some teething problems

OnePlus Watch in review: There are still some teething problems

Power saver. OnePlus opted for RTOS instead of Google's Wear OS and against an always-on display due to battery life concerns. However, that and an equivalent to the Play Store's Health app for the iPhone are reportedly already under discussion. We also found a few software bugs for the developers, but we are otherwise excited about the smartwatch. And not only because of its low price.

The striking Amazfit T-Rex Pro offers many settings and functions at a good price

Light baggage. The Amazfit T-Rex Pro is as robust as it is lightweight. Additional hardware like a barometer and a new biometric sensor make the Zepp wearable a lot better than its predecessor, which was still released under Huami. We also liked numerous settings in the test, including its options for the display, health management, and sports.

Logitech Keys-To-Go in hands-on review: Ultra-thin, small and light keyboard for iPhone & Co

Logitech Keys-To-Go in hands-on review: Ultra-thin, small and light keyboard for iPhone & Co

Why should you always lug around a laptop when you can do your typing from any lighter tablet or even smartphone these days? Of course, writing longer texts on a virtual on-screen keyboard is much less fast and comfortable than on physical keys. But since most external keyboards are big and bulky, Logitech now wants to offer the perfect companion for iPhone and iPad, but also Android devices - the Keys-To-Go.

Genesis Holm 510 RGB gaming desk hands-on: More than just a lot of space and RGB lighting

Gaming desks often come with RGB lighting and a few other gimmicks that don't justify their price. In addition to the rather common lights, cable organizer and cup/headphone holders, Genesis also throws in a wireless charger and a USB 3.0 hub. Today, we will see if these are enough to make the Holm 510 competitive or this is just another overpriced gaming desk.

Silver laptop for SMEs. Black laptops are out - at least in some segments.

Apart from the design, the ThinkBook 14 Gen 2 doesn't differ that much from the ThinkPad E14 Gen 2.

Our detailed test reveals any advantages the ThinkPad might still have or not have, compared to the ThinkBook.

Not everybody's darling. We got some ideas from our readers for the review of the Xiaomi Mi Watch. This sometimes led to different results depending on whether the wearable is connected to an Android device or an iPhone. The differences aren't only related to Alexa. Especially when it comes to the health parameters, it's not all good news.

82% Lenovo Tab P11 tablet review - Starting at 250 Euros: The cheapest 11-inch tablet is also an all-rounder

All-purpose weapon. Inexpensive and still with good features - many tablets fail at this balancing act, but the Lenovo Tab 11 manages to reconcile these seemingly contradictory terms. Naturally, its entry-level price of 250 Euros (~$298) requires some trade-offs. Nevertheless, the 11-incher performs well in the test and can cover a fairly broad range of applications.

Part GS66, part Prestige 15. The raw performance of the Stealth 15M A11SEK is impressive considering how light it is and that it's running on a Core U-series CPU. Unfortunately, the weak build quality and hinges leave a lot to be desired.

Schenker XMG Neo 17 (Tongfang GM7ZG7S) laptop review: El Dorado tuning

85% Schenker XMG Neo 17 (Tongfang GM7ZG7S) laptop review: El Dorado tuning

High power, high noise level. While other manufacturers don't disclose the graphics card's TDP, not only does Schenker list the corresponding value on its homepage, but it even lets customers adjust the TDP via software (at least in the case of the Neo 17). However, at a maximum of 140 watts, the RTX 3070 laptop that we tested produces a hefty amount of noise.

Inexpensive northern lights. OnePlus's most affordable phone so far is naturally expected to set standards in its class again. However, you have to do without many OnePlus features for just under 200 Euros (~$242), and the competition is strong. Is the Nord N100 still recommendable?

Preferences without flexibility. Oppo launches a low-priced 5G phone with the Reno4 Z 5G. A 120 Hz display and a price of around 300 Euros (~$300) seem attractive, but we take a closer look in our detailed review of the Chinese smartphone.

Eve Spectrum Gaming Monitor (4K, 144 Hz) First Look

Eve Spectrum Gaming Monitor (4K, 144 Hz) First Look

Eve's Spectrum gaming monitor has generated a lot of buzz in the gaming community. The gaming monitor aims to bring high resolutions (up to 4K) and high refresh rates (up to 240 Hz) at a reasonable price. While the company has a spotty track record when it comes to final delivery, pre-production units show a lot of promise. Based on early models, the Spectrum could be one of the best gaming monitors in 2021...provided Eve fulfills existing and future orders.

87% Dell Latitude 5310 2-in-1 convertible in review: 11-hour long-distance runner

Office in 360 degrees. The manageable office convertible holds a few trump cards: It is quiet, sturdily built, has good input devices, a nice display, an excellent microphone, a fast card reader, and component maintenance is not a foreign concept either. Will you hold all the trump cards with the Latitude 5310?

Premium bargain buy? The Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro shows top performance in many areas, but it doesn't exclusively use high-end components, which is why you can get it for around 550 Euros (~$671). Nevertheless, it's as fast as Xiaomi's Mi 10 Pro flagship with the Snapdragon 865; this is combined with 5G, a 144 Hz display, a 108 MP camera, and a 5,000 mAh battery.

Although not perfect, when we also take the price into account, we can conclude that this handset is a masterpiece.

Pricey despite compromises. Dell's new G5 15 5500 variant aims to appeal to the mid-range gamer. With a Core i5-10300H, a GTX 1650 Ti, and a 120 Hz display, the G5 15 5500 gets the basics right. However, for the asking price of ₹87,990 (US$1,195), the G5 15 5500 cuts corners, especially with the display. Can the Dell G5 15 5500 make up for these deficits on the performance front?

HTC Vive Cosmos Elite Detailed Hands-On Review: Elite of VR headsets, but still not problem free

VR is still at its beginnings. The HTC Vive Cosmos Elite is practically the VR flagship of the manufacturer. At this point, you can purchase it for slightly less than 950 Euros (~$1147; $899 in the US). Just like the first Vive, it uses external Lighthouse tracking, which works significantly more accurately than the inside-out headsets, which are wireless and easier to move around in. As a VR newcomer, I am stepping into fantastical as well as virtually recreated worlds to evaluate what the future has in store in terms of immersion and what still needs some improvements.

The new UGREEN X-Kit.

UGREEN X-Kit Hub-Stand hands-on review

UGREEN is a brand known for its multi-port docking solutions. Its latest product does one better, however, in that it is a hybrid of one of these devices and a laptop stand. Its maker asserts that its built-in connectivity is housed in a chassis made of high-end, recyclable materials. But how does this idea work out in practice?

realme Watch S in review: A lot of smartwatch for little money

realme Watch S in review: A lot of smartwatch for little money

Stroke upon stroke. The realme Watch S scores points with smart functions, health monitoring, and long battery life. The round smartwatch in an attractive aluminum case is already the second watch from realme. The manufacturer, which operates under the umbrella of the Chinese electronics group BKK, apparently strives for a high rating for all its products, not only for its smartphones.

82% 2020 HP Pavilion 13 11th gen Core i7 Review: It's Actually Pretty Good

Raising the bar for budget laptops. One of HP's least expensive subnotebooks has inherited so many features from the pricier Envy and Spectre series that it ups the ante for what a "budget" laptop should be.

87% HP Envy 13 Laptop Review: Elegant metal case and solid performance

A fancy mirror. The Envy 13 subnotebook from HP is a compact device with a lot of features. Its quad-core processor from Intel and dedicated graphics card as well as the 400 nits display should make for a a mobile work and entertainment device - if it weren't for the very reflective display.

ZenBook without a Zen CPU. With a 4K touchscreen, narrow display bezels, a good color space coverage, strong all-round performance, and a second display (ScreenPad) integrated into the touchpad, the ZenBook 15 UX535 exudes plenty of premium quality and is designed to appeal to creative and professional users in particular. Our review will clarify if it's able to accomplish this.

Not the best in its class. The OnePlus Nord N10 5G, which is powered by the new Snapdragon 690, proves to be quite compelling in our review. However, the N10 has several weaknesses, which other mid-range smartphones in this price range do not. To find out about the strengths of the OnePlus smartphone, read our review.

Samsung Galaxy Fit2 fitness tracker in the review: Better than its predecessor and significantly cheaper.

Adapted. Unlike Galaxy Watch, which has a few special features, Samsung's Fitness Tracker is just one of many. The nearly 100 Euros (~$121) of the predecessor was kind of unreasonable; the Samsung Galaxy Fit2 costs scarcely half. Our test clarifies how the price-performance ratio is.

Top-model genes. The Xiaomi Mi 10T is just as fast as its high-end counterparts, the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro, but it's much cheaper. In addition, the 6.67-incher is ahead of them with a 144 Hz display and a 5,000 mAh battery, the largest in the Mi 10 series, which gives it excellent runtimes. The Xiaomi Mi 10T's low price is only noticeable in a few configuration details.

Tiger Lake and Evo directly from the manufacturer. The Vision 15 from Schenker Technologies is one of the first notebooks based on Intel's brand-new NUC M15. There has been a lot of development effort for the 15.6-inch laptop and it offers a good basis whitebook for a premium multimedia laptop. We have already reviewed the Schenker Vision 15 and see if it really is an alternative for the Dell XPS 15 or Apple MacBook Pro.

The exact opposite of this is the price, since it's quite low at about 200 Euros (~$239). Our review will show the performance that can be expected in the end.
