This Black Friday discount on the Samsung Odyssey G9 is almost as massive as the monitor

Black Friday is a time of excess, kicking off a season of even more excess. In that spirit, I’ve been thinking about buying four more of my current monitor and lashing them together into a makeshift array using rope fashioned from my corgi’s shed hair. There’s no way that I could achieve such an impressive display in any other way, certainly not with a single monitor. At least that’s what I thought, until hardware ed James reminded me that the humongous Samsung Odyssey G9 exists. Read more

A couple of our favourite 2TB SSDs are real cheap in the UK today

Today happens to be a very good day to buy an SSD, as two critically acclaimed 2.5-inch SATA models in the popular 2TB size have been steeply discounted on Amazon UK. You can get the Samsung 870 Qvo for £146 or the slightly more performant Crucial MX500 for £159. That’s as little as 7p per gigabyte, an almost unheard-of price for a SATA SSD of this size. Whichever you choose, you get a ton of fast SSD storage for games, media or appplications at a very reasonable price. Read more

What To Expect From Nintendo At E3 2021

Got your crystal ball handy? Hope so, because Nintendo won’t be holding its traditional press event, Nintendo Direct, until Tuesday, June 15.

If you’d like to watch live on Tuesday, you can find the details on Nintendo’s E3 2021 landing page. The Nintendo Direct livestream starts at noon ET and will last around 40 minutes, after which the company’s…

Samsung 870 Evo review

For the past two years, Samsung’s 860 Evo SSD has been the best SATA drive you can buy for your PC. Its random read and write times have been pretty much unmatched since it first came out in 2018 (indeed, only Samsung’s 870 Qvo has managed to best it on write time), but despite still being best in class, Samsung are retiring it anyway and replacing it with the all-new 870 Evo.
