Iiyama G-Master GB3467WQSU Review

Over the past couple of weeks, I have been getting to grips with the G-master GB3467WQSU from iiyama. As with Pauls previous iiyama monitor review, offering up a lightning-fast, 165Hz VA panel. Does this Red Eagle Soar or is it merely left wanting? Bringing curves to the masses What's In The Box? When you unpack the G-master GB3467WQSU you get a few bits and pieces. Including both HDMI and Display Port cables, a USB A to USB B cable, and the power supply. There should be a way for you to connect this monitor to your computer. Unless you have a VGA or DVI port then you will probably be searching Amazon for an adapter. All the cables supplied are long enough that you shouldn't be worrying about the distance from tower to monitor. Whilst the monitor I am reviewing here is the 34" 1440p v...

SoundPeats RunFree Sports Headphones Review

Wireless headphones have become a daily necessity for most of us. Whether for work calls, motivation at the gym, or just to make a daily commute a little less miserable, the right headphones can vastly improve our day to day lives. Advertised as wireless open-ear headphones, the SoundPeats RunFree Headphones are available for around £25.00 - £30.00. Let's take a look at what your money buys you. Design and Control To start with, let me just say that the SoundPeats RunFree Headphones are simplistic, yet surprisingly comfortable. Made from food-grade silicone, the open-ear design connects wirelessly to your favourite devices via Bluetooth. While the nickel-titanium memory alloy neckband holds the headphones in place through the most rigorous of workout routines. Having the neckband ...

ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 4070 AMP AIRO Review

Today we'll be looking at the ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 4070 AMP AIRO. Much like with the previous 4070 Ti review here, my system contains a Ryzen 5 5600, which will bottleneck the ZOTAC RTX 4070. As a result for some of the benchmarks, you may see diminishing returns or even lower frames at lower resolutions. So again, I will be seeing how the Graphics Card fares as a mid-range GPU. Overview of The RTX 4070 The ZOTAC RTX 4070 can be purchased at around the £650 mark, at the time of writing. That is about bang in the middle for a 4070. So while it's still considerably more than XX70 Graphics Cards of the past, it isn't the most expensive for the current gen. Especially considering this is ZOTAC's top-end 4070, offering their highest factory clock boost. Visually, it looks identi...

EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max Review

When it comes to summer and gaming, I find that there needs to be a compromise somewhere along the line. After all, the Great British summer is hit and miss at the best of times, therefore any pleasant nights that we have, we tend to want to be outdoors. While making the most of the warm evenings, enjoying a beverage, eating and socialising with family and friends is pretty much my summer dream, how about a bit of outdoor gaming to throw into the mix? What if I told you that there was a way that you could enjoy gaming anywhere you wanted? Regardless of being close to a plug socket? Behold the EcoFlow DELTA 2 Max Portable Power Station! Off-grid gaming....to the max! When I was asked if I would like to test out a Portable Power Station that could output 230v, I was in awe. With my m...

G-MASTER G2470HSU 24″ Gaming Monitor Review

I've spent the past week or so using the G-Master G2470HSU monitor to see how it stacks up. This is a monitor aimed at the gaming crowd, offering up a lightning-fast, 165Hz IPS panel. Join me below as I take a look at what Iiyama has delivered with this display from their Red Eagle line. Baby, Don't (165) Hertz Me What's In The Box? First of all, let's talk about what you're getting when you unpack the G-Master G2470HSU. You get the monitor - handy - and stand along with both HDMI and Display Port cables, a USB A to USB B cable, documentation, and the power supply. It's been over a year since I bought a monitor, but I don't remember getting both kinds of cable included when I did, so this is a nice touch from Iiyama. All the cables supplied are 1.8m long. Whilst the monitor I am revie...

XPG Gammix S70 Blade 1TB M.2 SSD Review

You may have seen us talk about XPG and Adata multiple times on the site. From both performance and price aspects, they give you what some people class as the higher end of gaming brands, for up to half of the price on some occasions. Thanks to the team over at XPG, today we are checking out the XPG Gammix S70 Blade M.2. Performance and an amazing price tag By bringing more and more products with the above in mind to the gaming component market, they are making gaming more accessible. Don't get me wrong it still isn't cheap by any means. But with more and more brands competing, we have a future where PC gaming is pretty much accessible to most. So join me as I check out the XPG Gammix S70 Blade 1TB M.2. Out Of The Box Out of most of the components available for a build, one of the leas...

ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 4070 Ti AMP AIRO SPIDER-MAN™: Across the Spider-Verse Review

The kind folks over at ZOTAC sent us over the ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 4070 Ti AMP AIRO SPIDER-MAN™: Across the Spider-Verse... which I from here on out will refer to as the ZOTAC RTX 4070 Ti. Now, I should preface this by saying that my system contains a Ryzen 5 5600, which while a great processor, will bottleneck the ZOTAC RTX 4070 Ti. As a result for some of the benchmarks, you may see diminishing returns or even lower frames at lower resolutions. For that reason, I will be seeing how the Graphics Card fares as a mid-range GPU. The RTX 4070 Ti At A Glance This variant of the ZOTAC RTX 4070 Ti is currently available on Amazon for a whopping £876 at the time of writing. Though to be fair, it isn't the most expensive 4070 Ti. It's roughly in the middle of the price bracket that you'll...
