eTeknix Insider Edition #24

/ 4 years ago

It’s been a quiet week for reviews here at eTeknix, but what we have lacked in quantity we’ve made up in quality, with another great selection of product reviews. We have the OCZ RevoDrive Hybrid 1TB PCI-Express SSD put to the test in our benchmarks to see just how much performance you can pull for a 1TB drive, then for all you HTPC lovers, we have the stunning looking GD-07 HTPC Chassis from Silverstone, where I find out if it really is worth of a spot under you TV, then for all you hardcore racing fans out there we have the ultra premium spec T500RS racing wheel and it’s exclusive F1 wheel attachment put to the test in some of the most popular racing titles around, but can it really be worth £500? and finally for those of you who find those a little (or a lot) on the expensive side of things, we have a more budget friendly review of the upcoming Guns of Icarus multiplayer PC title.

Check out the links below to see how each product got on in our tests, all links open in a new tab.
