Mesh Elite Gamer PCA review: gaming PC that oozes quality

This imposing PC from Mesh comes in a rather expensive-looking, yet minimalist system case. Like the entry to an exclusive private club, its plain black door conceals well the coloured lights and mayhem within. As its name suggests, it’s the PC for Elite gamers with great taste in magazines. See all gaming PCs.

Just inside the door we find a Blu-ray player and a handy multi-format memory-card reader, but we need to delve deeper inside the case to find the real action. Here’s it’s all posh slide-out drive caddies, neat cable management and modular power supply connections. See also: What's the best gaming PC?

Taking pride of place atop the MSI Z870GD65 GAMING motherboard sits a factory overclocked nVidia GeForce GTX 770 graphics card – all of which is bathed in a soft blue glow when the PC is running. Which it does with the minimum of noise, thanks to the use of quiet fans throughout.

This PC is made from considerably higher-quality components than budget models and does therefore cost a little more. However, if you’re into upgrading and modifying your own PC, you will find this system much more to your liking, with plenty of room to work inside. The spec is already high though, featuring 16 GB of installed memory, a 2 TB hard drive and a large 250 GB Samsung 840 SSD.

Also adding to the cost is the only Core i7 processor to feature in this group test. The Intel Core i7-4770K offers a slightly higher clock speed than the Core i5-4760K, and also doubles the number of available processing threads from four to eight, improving its multitasking capability.

Furthermore, the chip has been overclocked to an impressive-sounding 4.6 GHz giving the system a noticeable boost in overall computing power. Although this is measurable in several subtests within the PCMark 7 suite, the overall score remains low due to an unexpectedly low Entertainment score, which we feel is probably anomalous.

However, do note that when it comes to gaming results, all that extra computing power offers no real advantage. Framerates were not significantly boosted in our tests.

The Elite Gamer PCA comes with a 24-inch monitor with plenty of inputs for multiple devices. Its TN panel is suited to fast-paced gaming, but lacks the colour fidelity and wide viewing angles of IPS displays, such as the one supplied by Chillblast.

Also supplied is a Microsoft Wireless Bluetrack Desktop 3000 keyboard and Mouse. Sadly, not a particularly gaming-friendly selection, but more than adequate for general use with a built-in wrist rest and a mouse which works on almost any surface.

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.

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.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.

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.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 Review

Is there more to the Surface Laptop 2 than a lick of black paint? Find out in our full review.
Should I Buy The Microsoft Surface Laptop 2? The Surface Laptop 2 is a slightly odd one as it's not a huge upgrade on the original. That said, it comes in at the same price with a few upgrades and the new black colour.You get an 8th-gen Intel processor giving a nice performance boost as well as double the memory for the entry-level model. Battery life is a little down in our test but it's still a decent effort making this still one of the best laptop around.
