The AGON AOC AG322QCX is one of the biggest gaming monitors you can get for less than £500, but is it the best? Today, we put this 31.5-inch 1440p 144Hz giant to the test!Design
The design of the AG322QCX follows other AOC AGON monitors, with a thin-bezelled panel sitting atop a stylish metal base. Adjustability is good, with options for tilting, swivelling and height adjustment. The whole assembly feels sturdy, and the monitor never feels at risk of wobbling or falling over.
A carry handle at the back makes relocating the monitor easier, which is particularly welcome on such a large screen. The monitor has three colour LEDs built into the bottom of the [...]

Through the game’s early missions, you can get a sense of Ancient Frontier’s flow. Missions will task you with defending friendly freighters and take on rival factions, or merely exploring space and gathering resources. After you make it back in once [...]
This £32 64GB SSD promises to deliver big performance even at small capacities. We’re a fan of their keyboards, but can Drevo deliver the same budget appeal when it comes to flash storage? Let’s find out in our full review.Design
The Drevo X1 Pro has a fun and eye-catching design, with a yellow lightning bolt on the front alongside its promised sequential read and write speeds: 400 MB/s for reads and 300 MB/s for writes. We’ll see about that!
In order to test the speed of the drive, we ran four synthetic benchmarks with varying payloads: CrystalDiskMark, AS SSD, ATTO and HD Tune Pro. Combined, these should give us a good [...]
