    The Philips Brilliance 245C5 23.8″ 1920 x 1080 LED IPS Monitor, better known as the Moda 2, takes a different sort of approach to make a name for itself in the crowded monitor market.

    Huawei Mate 8 Review

    Huawei has made a huge push into the premium smartphone market in recent years, with the Mate S going a long way toward helping the company shed their budget image.

    2017 Hyundai Elantra First Impressions

    Nominally Hyundai’s compact sedan, the Elantra is actually large enough to be considered a midsize. Doesn’t look like that has much impact on price, though — among compact competitors, the 2017 Elantra is one of the cheapest options on the market. It keeps saving you money after you start driving, too, with a focus on […]

    The Finest Hours IMAX Review: Ocean Overshadows Big Name Actors

    Disney’s latest, The Finest Hours, tells the real-life story of the 1952 Coast Guard rescue of World War II-era tanker, SS Pendleton.  Drawing up memories of Wolfgang Petersen’s The Perfect Storm, The Finest Hours does little in the way of actually embodying the other seafaring drama.  Although the actors made failed attempts to muster believable performances, […]

    While new processors and graphics cards get most of the attention in the world of computer components, memory — both storage and RAM — can be what makes or breaks a computer’s performance, especially for older machines.
