Amazon's Black Friday Sale Begins: See What's On Offer

Amazon's Black Friday Sale is finally here. Here are some of the best deals on now.
We've had our fingers poised over our keyboards long enough in anticipation of Amazon's Black Friday Sale, which went live at midnight and will last until 25 November.

CyberPower Infinity Fusion GT review - overclocked gaming PC with high-performance AMD graphics


Featuring a 3.4GHz Intel Core i5-3570K processor, overclocked to 4.6GHz, the Infinity Fusion GT PC delivers good application and gaming performance. See all gaming PC reviews.

The processor is cooled by a Corsair H60 CPU sealed-unit liquid cooler which offers slightly higher performance than the H55 found in systems we've tested recently from Chillblast and Yoyotech. It uses a thinner radiator which provides space for its twin fans. See all Power PC reviews.


CyberPower has gone for a high-end AMD graphics card in the form of a Radeon HD 7970, here manufactured by XFX. This card offers slightly faster memory performance than the latter's system, but overall performance was pretty much the same. You'll have no trouble running games at high resolution and with high-quality settings with this card.

The Infinity Fusion GT achieved a fast storage performance, thanks to a pair of 128GB Plextor M5S SSDs configured as a RAID 0 pair. It's worth noting that other PC makers have used a single 256GB version of the same SSD, which measured only fractionally slower and without the added complexity and danger of RAID 0.

These components are clearly visible through the transparent side panel of the Corsair Carbide 300R system case, which also provides plenty of expansion room – and a pair of handy front-facing USB 3.0 ports.

We were disappointed by the selection of mouse and keyboard. The Logitech MK330 wireless combo is a low-cost general-purpose kit offering nothing to the gamer. Serious first-person shooter fans will want to exchange this right away. On the other hand, we were pleased to find a Blu-ray writer included – the only example in this group test.

A smart-looking 23.6in AOC i2367FH monitor is included, with a very thin bezel and great colour reproduction, although it's an IPS model which may disappoint purists who demand the very fastest response times.

CyberPower participates in AMD's “Never Settle Reloaded” promotion which means that the included graphics card entitles you to free copies of Bioshock Infinite, Far Cry 3 and Crysis 3 – games that total about £90 at retail.

LG G5 Review In-Depth

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

Amazon Echo Plus (Second-Gen) Review

The second-gen Amazon Echo Plus is shorter, louder and better-looking than ever. What's not to like? Here's our review.
Should I Buy The Amazon Echo Plus (2nd-gen)?
The new Echo Plus offers a radical redesign compared to the original, ditching the plastic body for a fabric mesh housing that helps the speaker blend into the home environment. It’s not only better-looking either, as a larger speaker and tweeter provide improved audio quality and Dolby Play 360 audio support helps fills the room with music. What’s not to like?

Google Pixel Review

Not everyone wants a phone with a big screen, but most small-screen phones compromise on performance and cameras. Not so with Google’s latest flagship Android phone: Here’s our Google Pixel review.
Joining the ranks of the Pixel C and Chromebook Pixel are Google’s new Pixel phones. We’re reviewing the smaller 5in Pixel here, but you can read our separate Pixel XL review if you’re after a bigger phone.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review: Hands-on

We had time with Oppo’s new RX17 Pro. It may be blue and purple but how different is it to the similar OnePlus 6T and is it worth your time?
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
Oppo has made a solid mid-range phone in the RX17 Pro. Build quality is premium, fast charging is industry-best fast and the display is of high quality.But the price is high at 599€ considering the OnePlus 6T with a better processor starts at £499/€529. And while functioning as it’s supposed to, ColorOS is still unrefined for the western market with far too many changes to Android to recommend over competitors.

Nest Thermostat E Review

The Nest Thermostat E is a no-brainer in the US, but it's a trickier sell in the UK thanks to a price that's much closer to the similar third generation Nest
Should I Buy The Nest Thermostat E?
The Nest E is a great smart thermostat that’s comfortably among the most stylish and easy to use on the market, but as it stands in the UK, there’s not much reason to opt for the E over the existing 3rd gen Nest, which has some extra functionality for a similar price.It's a different story in the US though - a bigger price gap makes the E an easy recommendation if you're in the States.
