The AG251FG may come with the same 24.5-inch 240Hz panel as the Viewsonic XG2530 and BenQ XL2540, but it adds something new in the form of G-Sync. Let’s see which monitor reigns as our favourite by the end of the article.
We’ll start with a brief look at the monitor’s design and features.Design
The AG251FG is immediately recognisable as an AOC monitor, with the company’s trademark straight-edge aluminium stand. The stand rests on a V-shaped base, just wide enough to fit a tenkeyless (compact) keyboard between the two legs.
The AG251FG’s bezels are reasonably thin (2.5mm) on the top and both sides, and a little chunkier [...]
Today we’re looking at a trio of protective cases for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. These cases come courtesy of Tudia, an accessories firm founded in Minnesota in 2013. We have two different models to show you — the Tamm in black (right in the picture above) and the Merge in metallic grey and mint (centre and left, respectively). Let’s get right into it!
We’ll be accompanied on this brief review with our new favourite friend, a mysterious craft used by a Doctor of some renown.
You can see that each case possesses a two-tone design; the Tamm has a carbon fibre effect on the top and bottom while the Merge has a simpler black [...]

The Magic Keyboard is legendary amongst Apple fans — it’s light, stylish and even provides a decent typing experience, courtesy of some MacBook-style scissor switches. Today, I’m looking at a prospective replacement for the Magic Keyboard, a new mechanical keyboard from the experts at Drevo called the Joyeuse.
This keyboard uses Cherry ML-style low profile mechanical switches, allowing it to maintain incredibly thin dimensions while still including plenty of tactile feedback and a bunch of LEDs too. Let’s put it to the test, and find out if it’s time to retire the Magic Keyboard!Design
The Magic Keyboard vibes start immediately [...]
