When Western Digital first announced the WD_Black SN770 SSD, our initial thought was that this might end up being one of the best midrange drives on the market. Promising fast transfer speeds, a solid range of storage options, and an aggressively low cost, the SN770 appeared to be the perfect blend of performance and price. But could the real-world results live up to the promise of its marketing? To find out, we installed the

Earlier this year, Dell released the Latitude 9430 laptop, a follow-up to last year’s well-received 9420. On paper, the new model appears to be more of an incremental upgrade of its predecessor than an overhaul—which isn’t a bad thing considering the 9420’s popularity. To see just how much of an upgrade the latest Latitude is, we took it for a week-long test drive.
If you're a traveling business professional who is looking for a laptop that offers productivity through power and performance, the VAIO 14.1" FE14 Laptop may meet your needs. With its understated look and minimalist design, the FE14 still gives off a professional air without being too flashy—but you may want to keep a microfiber cloth handy because some parts of the chassis attract fingerprints.
It’s been more than two years since the Oculus—er, Meta—Quest 2 debuted. Since then, a lot has happened; a lot of things have changed.

Case in point: the Oculus Quest 2 is now the Meta Quest 2. The base model now comes with 128GB of internal storage—twice as much as the original.
Welcome to the Metaverse.
When it comes to picking out a laptop for creating content on location, users often must decide between power and portability. However, the 14.5" Lenovo Slim 7 ProX Laptop makes that decision easier by packing a 12th generation 2.3 GHz Intel® Core™ i7-12700H 14-core processor and dedicated NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 graphics into a stylishly thin and light form factor that helps ease the rigors of travel. My model is configured with
I was already on the hunt for a laptop case that could hold its own against the rest of my gear when I was asked to review the Pelican 1495. As a photographer, my requirements were simple: I needed a case that is rugged enough to endure the abuses of the road yet customizable enough to streamline tethered shooting on set. Pelican is the name behind most of my go-to hard cases for camera gear, so I was excited to see how its take on a
Although the brand is best known for its gaming laptops, MSI has gained additional prominence lately, thanks to its nascent line of business laptops. Case in point: the aptly named Summit E16 Flip, a 2-in-1 portable that currently sits at the top of MSI's "Business & Productivity" division. We spent some time with the Summit E16 Flip to see how it
A few years ago, I realized my family had a media problem: our movies, home videos, music, and pictures were scattered all over the place. Some media was stuck on physical discs, a bunch of it was stored on unlabeled thumb drives, and some were even trapped on old, obsolete computers. Even worse, it was all dumb; we had no sensible way of accessing and managing our multimedia library. Like many of you, my 2020 was spent mostly indoors, so consolidating and organizing our media became a project. But I underestimated how long it would take to
Earlier this year, Crucial added a 4TB storage option to its popular X8-series of external SSDs. Like the other storage options in the X8 lineup, the 4TB model promises fast transfer times, a slim, sturdy design, and enough storage to hold a small library’s worth of data. To see whether it could live up to those lofty promises, we took the 4TB X8 External SSD home for a weeklong hands-on review.

My grandparents have a lot of papers. Between their personal documents and reams of files from owning a small business, trying to pare down enormous stacks of paper has been no easy task. Over the weekend, I boarded NJ Transit with an ADS-3300W Scanner tucked under my arm to see if this bad boy could make a dent in their filing drawers.
