Accessories Reviews
Accessories reviews balance between a spectrum of products from computer cases to video surveillance cameras and even to accessories that enable users to squeeze more storage into smaller footprints. Accessories reviews form a large catch-all to compile all of the tech extras that users require, but that don't quite fit into our other categories of SSDs, HDDs, SOHO NAS and the like.

NVIDIA Quadro P6000 Review

Unlike several vendors in the industry, NVIDIA likes to keep it a bit simpler in terms of naming their products. A higher number is equal to a higher performer. In our previous reviews we’ve looked at GPUs on the lower end of performance and how they perform in workstations. Today we will be looking at the NVIDIA Quadro P6000 the second most powerful (and possibly the highest performing) GPU NVIDIA has to offer for desktop workstations.

NVIDIA Quadro P5000 Review

We previously reviewed several of the lower to mid-range cards from NVIDIA’s new Quadro line, and now we’re moving into higher end models, specifically the P5000. This powerful card is equipped with more CUDA cores and larger framebuffers compared to the lower models, enabling significantly better performance during larger datasets in complex enterprise workflows. Additionally, NVIDIA indicates that its advanced GPU-accelerated ray tracing technologies, such as NVIDIA Iray, allow professionals to complete their projects much faster.

NVIDIA Quadro P2000 Review

We previously reviewed the NVIDIA Quadro P1000 and P4000 GPUs, and though they certainly aren’t nearly as powerful as the company’s highest-end workstation GPUs, both of these cards performed well enough to suit most general professional use cases--and at a very affordable to boot. The P2000 offers much of the same, lying somewhere in between those two cards in the performance spectrum. Touted as the perfect balance of performance and features, this compact form factor GPU offers the power needed for creative professionals who work with intensive 3D applications.

NVIDIA Quadro P1000 Review

The NVIDIA P1000 is small form-factor professional graphics card from newly released Quadro cards featuring the company’s Pascal GPU architecture. We previously reviewed the mid-range P4000 model from NVIDIA’s new Quadro line and found it to be an impressive performer for its price point. The P1000 is a entry-level card from this family and is designed for those looking for an even more affordable GPU solution that minimizes the workstation footprint without having to sacrifice performance. Though it certainly can't handle demanding professional applications on the same level as the higher-class Quadro cards, the P1000 will be able to tackle most use cases.

NVIDIA Quadro P4000 Review

Early this year, NVIDIA announced their newest professional line of Quadro graphics cards that leverage the Pascal GPU architecture. We will be looking at the NVIDIA Quadro P4000, the middle-ground card of a product line that consists of models from all over the performance and form-factor spectrum. The P4000 is specifically designed for relatively demanding professional applications and comes equipped with a 1792 CUDA core Pascal GPU, 8GB GDDR5 of memory and advanced display technologies. Power-wise, NVIDIA quotes P4000’s max consumption at 105W, which is noticeably less than larger cards like the 150W M5000.

AMD Radeon Pro WX 3100 Review

At the beginning of the month, AMD launched a pair of new GPUs that address the entry-class performance needs of professionals in popular fields like design and manufacturing, media and entertainment and finance. And while AMD has plenty of specs that show where the new WX 2100 and WX 3100 stand out, they're really leading with a value-based message. Not just in terms of the $199 MSRP for the WX 3100, but also the fact that they offer a three year warranty (7 optional) with 24/7 local language support and a commitment to quarterly feature, performance and stability improvements. Of course the WX 3100 also has the popular application certifications including SOLIDWORKS, PTC Creo, Siemens NX, and CATIA.

Dell 27 Ultrathin Monitor S2718D Review

Touted as world’s overall thinnest profile in its class measuring just .25" at the edge, the Dell 27 Ultrathin monitor (S2718D) is designed for media professionals looking for a high-end monitor with a modern build. The slim profile extends to the sturdy metal base and pivot arm, which both use very little real-estate on a desk surface. The Ultrathin monitor helps users de-clutter their desks with USB-C charging capabilities, so those who have a notebook that supports USB-C charging (i.e. the Dell XPS 13) only need one cable to drive their monitor and charge at the same time.

NETGEAR Arlo Pro Security Cameras For Home Security Review

Arlo security cameras are a simple way to add cameras around the home without need of extensive, or even very much, technical knowledge. In our initial review, we found the cameras to be easy to install and manage with the enough features to keep the average consumer happy. As with anything, there is always room for improvement and improve the latest version, the Arlo Pro, are. Arlo took a look at some feedback around things like when the camera begins recording, swapping out batteries and its inherent cost, and what happens is the Internet goes out, and has made improvements across the board.
