Review: Kingston React Plus SDXC Kit (128GB)

Published

on

Kingston’s new React Plus SDXC Kit comes with an SDXC card that offers a storage capacity of 128GB and a Mobilelite Plus UHS-II SD card reader bundled with it. The SDXC card is designed to offer transfer speeds of up to 300MB/s and recording speeds of up to 260MB/s.

It also comes with the UHS-II standard for high-resolution photography and video recording. This means you can capture 4K and 8K Ultra-HD high-speed shots and videos without dropping frames.

Since the kit comes with the Mobilelite Plus UHS-II SD card reader, you can optimise your file transfers. In fact, it comes handy when you are on the road and you need to backup data from a DSLR, drone, or actions cameras.

The Kingston React Plus SDXC card we received, came with 128GB of storage space. Kingston’s MobileLite Plus SD Reader features USB 3.2 Gen 1 speeds along with maximum performance for UHS-II supported SD cards and backward-compatible for UHS-I supported SD cards.

In order to test the Kingston React Plus SDXC Kit, we used two different benchmarks – SpeedOut v0.5 and CrystalDiskMark 8.0.2. On SpeedOut v0.5, we were able to clock a read speed of around 237MB/s, while the write speeds stood at 112 MB/s.

On CrystalDiskMark 8.0.2, we were able to get 269 MB/s and a read speed of about 276 MB/s. These are some very good numbers, especially for an SDXC card made for capturing 4K and 8K photos and videos.

The Kingston Canvas React Plus SDXC kit performed really well. Coming in at a price point of AED 366, this 128GB kit sounds like an excellent value-for-money SDXC kit.

If you are looking for a dependable SDXC kit for use in your DSLR, action cam, or even your drone, the Kingston Canvas React Plus SDXC Kit is highly recommended.

Price: AED 366

Sennheiser Introduces new CX True Wireless Earbuds

Published

on

Sennheiser has launched a new pair of affordable true wireless earbuds as part of its CX range, which the company calls CX True Wireless. In terms of design, the earbuds are a bit similar-looking to the CX 400BT. Rather than use off-the-shelf components Sennheiser has equipped each bud with its own home-made TrueResponse transducer, which is designed and manufactured in its HQ in Germany.

Sennheiser can control frequency response and tone in this way, and the manufacturer boasts of deep bass, natural mids, and plenty of clarity in the higher frequencies. The CX True Wireless app includes a Smart Control feature, which allows you to adjust the EQ to your liking. Bluetooth 5.2 support is included, along with aptX for lag-free connectivity with Android smartphones.

Outside of the case, the buds can last for up to 9 hours before they need to be docked in their cradles again, with two additional full charges in the case, making a total of 27 hours. After a firmware update, each bud comes with a touch-sensitive interface that allows users to customize commands. That means you can use it to control audio, answer calls or launch your phone’s assistant.

With dual microphones on each earbud, the CX True Wireless optimizes voice pick-up for calls and voice assistant access even when using just one earbud. For added versatility, each earbud can be used individually via a simple ‘role switching’ feature.

Using the Smart Control app, users can allow the Sidetone feature to enable their own voice to be heard during calls. The CX True Wireless will be available in matte black or matte white for AED 549 including VAT.

LG OLED TV and XBOX SERIES X Partner to Bring an Enhanced Gaming Experience in KSA

Published

on

LG Electronics (LG) and Xbox have entered into an exclusive marketing partnership to highlight the phenomenal gaming experience of the widely-anticipated Xbox Series X console and LG OLED TV in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. LG OLED TV has become the official TV partner of Microsoft’s new console to provide consumers the opportunity to experience for themselves the sheer exhilaration of gaming on LG’s 2021 OLED TV models and Xbox’s latest console.

The combination of LG’s most advanced TV and Xbox’s most powerful console ever allows both casual and serious gamers alike to enjoy next-generation gaming today. With features such as an ultra-fast 1ms response time with low input lag and support for the latest HDMI specifications including Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM), and enhanced return audio channel (eARC), games not only look and sound better, they’re more responsive. With four ports ready to support these features, LG’s OLED TVs offer all the advantages of simultaneous connections for multiple gear set-up from consoles to PCs.

The advanced combined processing power of the duo enables players to enjoy 4K gaming at up to 120 frames per second to take advantage of the latest advancement in real-time ray tracing graphics technology. LG’s 2021 OLED TVs are the first to support the new HGiG profile and as founding members of the HDR Gaming Interest Group, LG and Microsoft are confident that the latest HDR titles will look exactly as their developers intended.

With its self-lit pixel technology, LG OLED TV boasts superior picture quality with vibrant, natural colors and infinite contrast. And as the first TV and the first game console to support Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, LG OLED TV and Xbox Series X will draw gamers even deeper into the action with dynamic images and sounds. And because eye fatigue from gaming is a real thing, all of LG’s 2021 TV models feature OLED panels that are Eye Comfort Display certified by TÜV Rhineland, meeting every one of the high criteria set by the international testing firm.

The certification indicates that the TVs are flicker-free, emit minimal blue light and deliver a wide color gamut, excellent HDR performance, and consistent picture quality when viewed from a wide angle. For even more eye comfort assurance, LG OLED TVs are also verified by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) as flicker-free and low blue light-emitting, posing no photobiological hazard. The LG OLED and XBOX is currently available for a bundle package this month and consumers can purchase at LG showrooms and retail stores in KSA.
