Kingston UV500 Review

Kingston sells the UV500 SSD as a device for both a home and office use, but the lifespan of the drive and its encryption credentials are likely to be much better suited to the latter.
Should I Buy The Kingston UV500?
The UV500 isn't the fastest or cheapest drive around but will last a long time thanks to tried and tested technology. It's also well suited to anyone needing to comply with data protection laws.
This SSD, available in a range of capacities, will be a reliable workhorse if that's what you need.

Outlaws and Angels Review

Where Are The Angels?



It's an old-style bank robbery in the wild West that begins with the actual robbery, and it's a brutal one. Afterwards, Henry (Chad Michael Murray) leads the gang on their run from the usual hell-bent posse. It's one in a string of robberies by this bunch and it's immediately clear that no one in this gang is going to turn out to be a good guy who is just misunderstood. 


The posse is led by Josiah (Luke Wilson) and on their chase and on their travels they meet people who have fallen victim to the gang as well as some witnesses. Their chase leads them further into the wilderness. Meanwhile, Henry takes his gang of ne'er-do-wells to a remote farm, hoping for some down time to plan their next move.

The farm is occupied by George (Ben Browder), his especially religious wife, Ada (Teri Polo), and their daughters Florence (Francesca Eastwood) and Charlotte (Madisen Beaty). When Henry leads the boys into the farm, the violence of the bank robbery is repeated in the brutality they show to the farmer's family.


Blood flows early and in buckets, with George experiencing the brunt of the abuse. Everything that goes on inside the cabin has an edge of impending danger. Are the three women in danger of rape? That's the direction writer/director J. T. Mollner points the audience, as each woman is assigned to one of the outlaws. But there is another undercurrent at work in the cabin. The farmer's family also has secrets and behavioral issues that eventually get revealed. Florence is particularly of interest, with a very spacey outlook in her eyes. Henry is most intrigued by her and Florence, shockingly seems quite happy with his attention.

George and Charlotte are treated horrifically. The religious Ada is raped and yet it's not entirely clear if Ada herself regards this as a good or bad event. Henry and Florence become lovers and she joins the murderous group. Where it goes from here involves some real plot twisting, with some twists seeming possible, while others ring a bit too far-fetched. The fairly surprising ending may leave you questioning it all, and it will probably cloud your opinion on just who are the outlaws, and who are the angels.

LG Gram 17 Review: Hands-on

LG’s Gram 17 was on display at CES 2019 and we got our hands on the ultra-thin, ultra-light device featuring a beautiful 17-inch display
Should I Buy The LG Gram 17?
The Gram 17 is an impressive bit of kit, but it is serving more of a niche audience than it perhaps appears.
A laptop with a display any bigger than 15 is perhaps approaching a point where it struggles to be called ‘portable’ due to it’s raw size. However, if that isn’t something that bothers you, the 17-inch display is fantastic for both working and watching your favourite films or series on.
Everything else aside the Gram is a beautiful, extremely light choice of laptop that manages to pack a lot of power and utility into an incredibly slim, slick package.

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.

Nokia 9 Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

We've waited two years for the Nokia 9, and at the end of this month the company could finally put us out of our misery. Here's what we know about the Nokia 9 PureView, which could feature a penta-lens rear camera.
Nokia made its comeback to the Android market in January 2017 with the Nokia 6, and we've been waiting two years now for its long-rumoured flagship Nokia 9 to arrive. At MWC 2018 we thought that time was here, and then we got the the Nokia 8 Sirocco. But now the wait could really, really be over, as the Nokia 9 is tipped to land before the end of January 2019.
