06/27/2014 - 07:48

This review comes before the end of the pre-order period. The reason why I targeted that deadline is because the pre-order perks are quite significant. First, either version of the mouse is listed for about $50 off of its MSRP (which is half price for...

Benchmark, Drivers, EVGA's Perspective, Pricing, and Conclusion

06/23/2014 - 17:30

Because this was my first, real mouse review, I did not have any prior methods of benchmarking mice. Also, because the pre-order period is almost over, I gave myself a hard cutoff. In that time, I only came up with one benchmark: "How quick can I...

CFast is a standard, based on the merging of CompactFlash with SATA, for memory cards to have SSD-like performance. It has been around for a while, CFast 2.0 having been released in Q4 2012, but with very limited adoption. You could count the number of...

Update: Uh, apparently GOG's DRM-Free Summer Sale (note: everything on GOG is DRM-Free) has not yet ended. Those deals are definitely worth your time to check out. While I missed writing about GOG's Summer Sale (okay, at the time of this...
