Wired2Fire Wired2 Business Accelerate review: speedy office PC


Wired2Fire’s Business Accelerate certainly lives up to its name and also comes with some unique features. However, it’s also by far the most expensive. See all business PC reviews.

Based on the 3.4 GHz Intel Core i5-4670, the Business Accelerate employs the same quad-core Haswell processor as used in Arbico’s HS4670 Pro. Take a look at Group test: What's the best office PC?

Wired2Fire’s system managed decent PCMark 7 result with a score of 5667 points. This is all very good for graphic design and video editing workstations but for an office PC it simply pushes up the price without delivering any productivity advantage. 

Key to its high benchmark result is the Samsung 840 solid-state drive, also used by Arbico. Once again, this SSD is the only form of storage included but 120 GB capacity is well chosen as it provides adequate space for Windows and locally installed office applications which will run incredibly fast. See also The 7 best tablets with expandable memory.

A wired Gigabyte K6800 keyboard and M6800 mouse are supplied. The former is festooned with unnecessary multimedia hot-keys and features flamboyant styling but its nonetheless comfortable to use.

Rather than providing a single display, Wired2Fire has elected to provide a pair of 21.5-inch monitors. The smaller size makes text somewhat harder to read and the cheaper TN panels reduced colour fidelity and viewing angles. But the effective 3840 x 1080-pixel screen area can give a considerable boost to productivity. It allows you to keep applications full screen on one while having email always readable on another, for example.

These displays retail for around £90 each, so you could also make a cost saving by going for just one, making the Business Accelerate seem rather less expensive after all. The system is backed by a basic two-year return-to-base warranty.

Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac Review

You probably know Synology for making NAS drives but the firm has also turned its hand to mesh networks. Here we review the MR2200ac.
Should I Buy The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac?
Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

Moto Z4 Play Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

We investigate rumours surrounding the Moto Z4 Play, which could be announced in June 2019 with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Announced in June 2018, the Moto Z3 Play was never joined in the UK by the standard Moto Z3. It's possible that for the Z4 series we will again see only the Play model go on sale here, with the Moto Z4 Play expected to be announced in the UK in mid-2019.

Dell XPS 13 (2019) vs Dell XPS 13 (2018)

Can Dell make its XPS 13 laptop any better? Well it's tried with a new 2019 model so we compare the two and explain what has and hasn't changed.
Should I Buy The Dell XPS 13 9370 (2018) Or Dell XPS 13 (2019)?
There’s a new XPS 13 in town but you’ll struggle to justify the upgrade from 2018’s model with namely a new webcam as a headline upgrade.
Sure, there are other upgrades to the the core specs but for most people, these will be fairly insignificant. The inclusion of a cheaper Core i3 model is particularly interesting.

Huawei P Smart 2019 Review

Huawei has updated its budget Android phone for 2019. It’s faster and better than before, but should you buy it? Read our review to find out.
Should I Buy The Huawei P Smart 2019?
The P Smart 2019 is a great upgrade from the 2018 model with a bigger screen and better performance. However, as with the original P Smart, Honor's version is better value.
