20 of the Worst PC Setups – November 2018
I’m sure at some point you’ve had a bad PC setup. Maybe moving into a new place, waiting for a new desk to arrive or you just ran out of room.

We will are going to pick 20 each month and feature them as 20 of the Worst PC setups for that month. Here are some of the bad ones from November.

ADATA SX8200 Pro 1 TB Review
The ADATA SX8200 Pro comes with a faster controller, which improves the performance of TLC significantly. Especially heavy writes see big improvements, with results that almost make this drive look like MLC. Pricing is extremely reasonable, too: only 21 cents per GB. The SX8200 Pro is both faster and cheaper than the Samsung 970 EVO.

Asustor AS4004T Low-Cost 10GbE NAS Review
Introduction In June 2008, the world glimpsed gigabit Ethernet for the first time. By 2009, around the same time as the Y2K madness, the ratification process completed and we began to see products. That was nearly twenty years ago, and it's still the standard today.

Battlefield V Ultra DXR Patch and Driver Performance Analysis
Battlefield V Ultra DXR Patch and Driver Performance Analysis This DXR patch and driver performance analysis is the follow-up to BTRs Battlefield V PC Game and Performance Review.  We found that the Ultra DXR reflections looked incredible but unfortunately, they killed performance and made the War Stories largely unplayable in some sections of the game.

Corsair SF600 (2018) 600W SFX Power Supply Review
Corsair is no stranger to the enthusiast computer power supply market, and most of its PSUs are built for ATX form factor cases. Corsair does however dabble a bit in the SFX end of the spectrum which tries to shoehorn as much power as possible into the smallest space possible. Let's see what the new SF600 is all about.

HP Spectre Folio Review
Meet the HP Spectre Folio, the company’s latest ultra-portable 2-in-1 13-inch hybrid notebook that embraces a bit of what also makes things like luxury cars great – high-quality leather and classy design. While Microsoft only adorns its keyboards with Alcantara, HP covers the entire Spectre Folio exterior in supple, textured leather that transforms it into a more organic accessory, rather than just a sterile productivity, entertainment or content creation tool.

This isn’t your grandma’s Honda Civic-grade leather either; think more on the level of an Audi A8 with the aromatic properties of a Bentley...

Just Cause 4 Review@ Wccftech
Open-world games are changing. Ubisoft have been gradually transforming their open-world titles into RPGs, while Rockstar have fallen in love with online multiplayer, and, uh, horse testicle simulation. The Just Cause series is one of the last remaining proponents of an earlier open world philosophy that emphasizes do-it-yourself mayhem over story, realism, or live-service-pushing interconnectedness.

Seagate BarraCuda (500GB) SSD Review
Seagate has been one of the top names in the storage industry for decades, but its almost exclusively for their hard drives. The company has been largely absent from the consumer SSD market, and their enterprise SSDs have never particularly stood out above the competition. By comparison, rival Western Digital managed to acquire SanDisk and with it a 50% stake in one of the largest NAND flash manufacturers. Seagates acquisitions have been less fruitful: they bought controller designer SandForce right around when SandForce drives disappeared from the market for good. Since then, Seagate has had to buy controllers and NAND on the open market and provide product differentiation through firmware or by integrating their drives into storage appliances.

But, after over five years since we last reviewed a Seagate consumer SSD, Seagate is bacl. Earlier this year the company re-entered the consumer SSD market with their BarraCuda SATA SSD, and today were taking a look at it. Seagates new drive adopts Toshibas 3D TLC NAND, but is held back by the outdated Phison S10 controller.

TEAMGROUP T-FORCE DELTA TUF Gaming RGB Review
The DELTA TUF Gaming RGB are available in 2400MHz, 2666MHz, 2933MHz and 3200MHz, all equipped with aluminium heat-spreaders and advertised compatibility with AMD and Intel motherboards. TEAMGROUP have provided us with their top-spec 3200MHz, 16GB kit, across a pair of DIMMs, boasting CAS timings of 16-18-18-38. Our previous encounter with the T-FORCE DELTA RGB was tested on an X370 machine, so our tests will demonstrate the ability of the DDR4 kit using the X470 chipset.

Thermaltake Level 20 GT RGB Review
The Thermaltake Level 20 GT RGB is a great chassis that looks as good as it performs. But the $289 (£ 227.13) price will likely be the deciding factor for most people considering this case.

Turtle Beach Elite Atlas Wired PC Gaming Headset Review
Introduction Elite Atlas Turtle Beach headsets continue to blow me away. Their Elite Pro 2 + Super Amp which we tested a couple of months ago, for example, is one of the best theyve ever made. When it comes to high-performance gaming headsets, its up there with the best.

XPG SX8200 Pro Review
What's new with the SX8200 Pro? Firstly, we get increased speeds, bumping up to 3500MB/s and 3000MB/s, read and write, respectively. The SX8200 was limited to 3200MB/s and 1700MB/s. IOPS are also vastly improved, with 390,000 and 380,000 read and write, representing around a 30% increase on the previous. Speed isn't the only improvement, capacity also gets a little bump, with each tier being stepped up slightly, with the 480GB model now arriving with 512GB, for example.
