eTeknix: Philips Evnia 8000 34" Curved QD OLED Gaming Monitor Review

I've reviewed a lot of monitors over the years here at eTeknix, Im not sure how many, but its most certainly into the triple digits. Ive seen a pretty wide range of monitors in that time, from affordable models that cost under £100, to monster-class products that cost £2000+.

TweakTown: Intel Arc A750 Graphics Review

Intel's Arc A750 is a decent 1080p and 1440p performer where the price feels right, but there are inconsistencies and room for improvement.

The Guru of 3D: Asus ROG Azoth keyboard review

The Asus ROG Azoth keyboard is the one we’re reviewing today. The last one from Asus ROG I had my hands on was the Claymore II (in 2021, a wireless 100% keyboard that earned a “Recommended” award). This time it’s the 75% form factor wireless keyboard initially shown at the CES 2023. What we’ll find interesting about this product? It’s not using the Cherry MX switches. Still, the custom-made ASUS ROG ROG NX (hot-swappable, pre-lubricated) switches are offered here, aimed at gamers and professionals.

Hardware Busters: Vetroo 1000W ATX v3.0 PSU Review

The Vetroo GV1000 (1000G5) is an ATX v3.0 and PCIe 5.0 PSU, sold at $156, a good price for a PSU with these features. It uses an efficiency platform, which scores Platinum in the Cybenetics scheme, and it has a silent operation. Actually it is among the quietest units in the 1000W category.
