Samsung Galaxy S9

The Samsung Galaxy S9 is going to be announced in a couple of days at the MWC show in Barcelona, and like any other smartphone release, it's not a very secret to keep as details leak out before it becomes official. As far as Android flagship phones go, the S9 will be one of the top dogs and while it might be a huge leap over the S8 it still looks to be very promising. Engadget has all the details ahead of their official February 29th announcement date.

Samsung is primed to unveil its latest flagship, the Galaxy S9. Fortunately for anyone desperate to hear what's coming on February 25th, there's been no shortage of leaks and renders before the big day. It's not good news for the secret-keepers at Samsung but gives us plenty of threads to pull at ahead of the big reveal in Barcelona. How will the Galaxy series fare against the latest trio of iPhones? Can it best the talking-poop emoji?

ADATA @ CES 2013

We had the chance to sit down with ADATA at CES 2013 and check out the latest and greatest from them. ADATA is most famous for their DDR memory, Flash drives, SSD’s and memory cards and over the years we’ve had the chance to take a look at a few of them and have always been happy with the performance and quality. ADATA has a full lineup of SSD and memory products on display. one of which is their lineup of M.2 (NGFF) SSD drives which are designed for things like Ultrabooks where a full 2.5" drive just won't fit.


This year at CES ADATA is showing off a new product, the DashDrive Air. The DashDrive Air is a great portable device that can wirelessly transfer files to and from a SD card to your smartphone (Android or iOS). The DashDrive also has a battery inside which allows you to charge up any USB device. If thats not enough for you, the DashDrive Air can also act as a wireless hotspot and share a wireless connection with up to 8-10 devices (depends on model of DashDrive). The DashDrive Air comes in two models, the AE800 (which features an internal 500GB hard drive instead of having to use SD cards) and the AE400 (which is a bit smaller and uses an SD card for storage). The combination of a power bank, wireless hotspot, and wireless file storage makes this a very interesting product and could make it a great travel accessory.

Sennheiser at CES 2014 (Gamers and DJs Welcome)

We have a look at a few new products from Sennheiser this year at CES. They just launched a couple of new gaming headphones - including a closed style as well as some great new DJ headphones. Take a look at our interview for more info!

Samsung Super Booth with SuperUHD at CES 2015

We stopped at Samsung's booth again this year at CES and they always have a ton of beautiful products. That's one thing that I have grown to appreciate about Apple and Samsung is the fact that they are serious about product design. Samsung showed off their S-UHD TVs, Super Smart TVs (with PlayStation Now) in addition to Gear VR that's been out for a while and also some amazing speakers that look like Portal Turrets. 


Of course their curved screens are making their way into computer LCDs and both they had a bunch of curved 4K monitors on displays to give you an idea of what is possible.

BenQ @ CES 2016

CES 2016 is in the books but we managed to slip in one more visit before the doors closed. Today we met with BenQ to check out what they've got in store for 2016.

BenQ is of course best known for their LCD monitors and video projectors, which they of course had on display at CES 2016. BenQ is showing off their new monitor which they are calling the ultimate gaming monitor, the BenQ XL2730Z. After checking out a demo of this QHD (2560x1440) LCD monitor that offers 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms GTG response time, we think they might have a point. In addition to high end specifications, BenQ has added software that gamers will appreciate when switching between games or even if they have to get some work done. The BenQ XL2730Z is a very nice monitor and we will hopefully get a chance in the future to take this new model for a test drive on our test bench. 

Another monitor on display this year was BenQ's XR3501 35 inch curved LCD monitor. Curved monitors definitely have a "WOW" factor to them, but they are also very nice for people who want to replace to monitors with one single device. The gaming crowd also likes the extra wide screen space in particular for racing of flight simulator games. 

And then last but not least, BenQ had a display of all of their gaming peripherals on display. Now before you scratch your head wondering why BenQ is making mice and keyboards it is helpful to remember that BenQ recently acquired Zowie, who is very well known for making high quality gaming products for many years. Thanks to this new relationship, BenQ is able to offer proven products that compliment their gaming monitors, the relationship had been strong between the two companies for years but after the acquisition BenQ is able to offer a full range of gaming peripherals. BenQ isn't trying to make the flashiest gaming mice and keyboards on the market, they'd rather focus on quality and performance which gamers will appreciate. Zowie's slogan is "Strive for Perfection" and that shows in their design.

If you'd like to see more of these Zowie/BenQ gaming products (and a whole bunch more of them), check out Zowie's website.
