BenQ Zowie XL2546 e-Sports Monitor Review

It seems like many monitors are being marketed to consumers as "gaming monitors" with their flashy RGB lights, curved screens, and impressive specifications, but are these the type of monitors you want if you are a serious e-Sports player? From what we've gathered, probably not. Most professional e-Sports players do not use super large displays, curved screens, or even high resolutions. They are more concerned about performance and functionality. That is where the BenQ Zowie XL2546 e-Sports monitor comes in. This 24.5-inch TN panel had an HD (1920 x 1080) resolution, 240 Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, and 320 cd/㎡ brightness. On top of that there are gaming-focused features like Zowie's Dynamic Accuracy technology, Black eQualizer technology, an LCD frame that was designed to reduce light reflection from the screen, and even shields on the side of the monitor to eliminate distractions. Is this the ultimate monitor for the serious e-Sports player? Read on as we find out...

HyperX Predator RGB DDR4-2933 16GB Memory Kit Review

It seems like every memory company is now offering RGB modules and HyperX is now one of them releasing their first ever RGB kit in their Predator DDR4 RGB. This kit comes with an updated heatspreader design, of course RGB lighting, and one very special feature that you won't find on other RGB kits. That special feature comes in the form of IR channels built into each module. These ensure that the RGB lighting effects don't get out of sync, by allowing the modules to "talk to each other". We were actually shown how this works at CES earlier this year. Today we are checking out the HX429C15PB3AK2/16 kit, which is a 16GB (2x 8GB) kit running at 2933 MHz with timings of 15-17-17-39 at 1.35V. Let's see how this kit stacks up against other RGB kits we've reviewed recently.
