Big orange bumpers. Protective covers for the connections. Armored corners. Rugged hard drives sure do look the part and, with manufacturers claiming they can be dropped, knocked around, and survive a light rain, sure do seem reassuring for the adventurous types. Would they truly hold up to this type of abuse in the real world? We took a sampling of the latest tough drives and held them to their...

While working from home or on the road, have you ever looked at your computer or bag o’ gear and thought to yourself, “I wish I had more wired peripherals and cords to create even more of a tangled mess?” Neither have I. In fact, aside from endeavoring to keep a neat and tidy workspace and a well-organized travel bag, I’m always looking for ways to reduce clutter further and travel more...

I have been a Surface fan since Microsoft started this line of tablet/PC hybrids, and I have defended it vigorously against naysayers and malcontents who bashed its high price, clunky interface, and all-around Windows-related issues. But the fact is, as we've stated before, the Surface line is great bang for the buck. This, of course, depends on which Surface you're considering. The...

3D printers are not just for hobbyists. They can also be used in schools, whether it’s for creative purposes in art classes or educational purposes in science classes. With the versatility of a 3D printer, teachers can offer students a different perspective into learning about their subjects. Most people will think of arts and crafts when it comes to putting 3D printers in the classroom. Drawing...

Recently, OWC updated plenty of its devices to support Thunderbolt™ 3, meaning greater speeds and simplified connectivity. Today we are examining a trio of the company’s devices: the...

To be frank, most monitors that traverse my desk aren’t exactly the most exciting in the world. If the panel is sharp and accurate, I am 95% satisfied, since all the other bells and whistles are almost unnecessary if you just need something to sit in front of you for editing photos and video. This thinking all changed when the...

One of the nice things about working for a technology company is that not only do we get to review lots of cool gear, but sometimes that gear is so useful it becomes part of our everyday workflow. Take, for example, the Sony DPT-RP1 Digital Paper System, which, after some initial in-house testing...

We came. We saw. And on the rare occasion we managed to conquer, at E3 2018. There were so many announcements and in-depth looks at the biggest games coming out this year, we figured we would give something of a recap of our favorite games from the show. Read on to find out what we thought brought the heat to LA this year. Best Nintendo...

Another toys-to-life experience isn't quite what many of us hand in mind when we came to E3, but when Ubisoft dropped the news that Star Fox was joining the cast of Starlink: Battle for Atlas on the Nintendo Switch version, I'm sure many heads turned to see exactly what this adventure was about. I was one of those people, curious about this upcoming space adventure where one of the most famous...

While we were walking through the Sony booth, we were pulled into the FIFA 19 demo. Playing on PS4 and DualShock wireless controllers, we decided to team up against the AI since we were novice players. Jumping into a 10-minute match, we immediately noticed how tight the controls felt. Going for slide tackles quickly became one of our favorite things to do in the demo, but we became overzealous a...

After getting to the South Hall of the LA Convention Center early in the morning, I played the new Pokémon game after a relatively short wait (it was way worse in the afternoon). When I reached the front of the line, I was instructed to approach a docked Nintendo Switch and a TV where a Nintendo staff member was waiting. She explained that I was going to be playing Let's Go, Pikachu! (the version...

It was very clear how popular battle royale games have become, especially Fortnite. That game was everywhere on the show floor. You could play Fortnite at several different booths and on different devices. While Fortnite isn't a new game, it did become available for download on the Nintendo Switch during E3 2018. Epic Games had its own booth in the South Hall and the company went all-out. There...

If you have been wanting to shoot webs and swing through New York City, the latest Spider-Man, from Insomniac Games, is the best opportunity to take control of the superhero. At E3, Sony offered quite a sizable demo of the game, which makes sense considering it is one of Sony's major exclusives. It is another beautiful game that shows off the power of the PS4 Pro and does a great job of...

Nintendo has been busy this E3 2018. While Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is its heavy hitter for the show, Mario Tennis Aces is another game that will be coming to your Nintendo Switch very soon. We had a chance to play the game, at E3 2018....

When we say we go hands-on with a game here at E3, we really mean we went hands-on with a controller to take on a game, which makes that interface device the most important part of any gaming experience. SCUF Gaming knows this, having catered to professional eSports competitors for years already with custom, high-end controllers that will help them completely master their chosen game. Just...
