• Xbox One Review

    Posted on 30/01/2014 by | 1 comment

    The Xbox is among the most popular gaming consoles available out there currently, and only the PlayStation series from Sony gives a competition to this Microsoft made gaming console.

    2013 was a really blessed year for games out there as the Xbox One, one of the best and most powerful gaming consoles out there, got released. Upon arrival, the Xbox One received wide appreciation and popularity for its performance, looks and features. And today, we’re here with our own detailed review of the Xbox One by Microsoft.

    Before we review the Xbox One, below are some of its important hardware specifications, in case you didn’t know:

    • 8 core 1.75 GHz CPU.
    • 8 GB DDR3 RAM.
    • 853 MHz GPU.
    • 8 GB in built flash memory.
    • 500 GB non user replaceable hard drive.
    • Cloud Storage support.
    • USB 3.0

    The Xbox One is Microsoft’s third installment under the “Xbox” branding and a very futuristic and powerful machine as well. By the introduction of the Xbox One, Microsoft has tried really hard to lift up the utility of this console. The Xbox One is not only a gaming console by any means but can also help you stream videos and music, do Skype calls, browse the web etc., thus bringing in a variety of features.

    XboxOne1

    The looks and feel of the Xbox One is of real high standard and quality, as it should be. The size and overall physical looks of the Xbox One resembles the previous generation Xbox console, the Xbox 360 by some means. Even though the Xbox One looks bulkier than its competitor, the Sony PlayStation 4, it is not an ugly looking console by any means.

    The console comes with all proprietary ports such as 3 USB 3.0 ports, HDMI-in and HDMI out ports, IR out port, Ethernet port, Audio Port, and a special one to connect your Kinect device to the Xbox One.

    You already might be familiar with the Kinect device, but with the Xbox One, the Kinect is much more integrated with the core performance of the console.

    Microsoft has also introduced the “SmartGlass” application that supports all major mobile operating systems like iOS, Android and Windows Phone and acts as a client to sync with your Xbox account and the system. Using this application, you’ll be able to view and respond to message quite easily and the application also syncs with the gameplay with some supported games and can also be used to view live progress or even to call for help with your Xbox gaming contacts.

    Final Words:

    When the comparison is between the Xbox One and the Sony PlayStation 4, the Xbox seems to be the over-priced console with certain limitations and a very bulky design. However, in the past if you’ve been a satisfied customer of the Xbox or if you wish to the among the early adopters for the Xbox One, then you must get one now.

    Most of the issues regarding the Xbox One are software related and a much-appreciated software update is said to be under cards and should be enough to resolve any known issues with the Xbox One.

  • Avira Ultimate Protection Suite

    Posted on 24/08/2015 by | Comments Off on Avira Ultimate Protection Suite

    Security in computer and over internet connections are a major concern in present days. With more available resources to get connected to the vast network, there have been more exposed threats to a computer or person than any time ever before. Hence, a security software is required on computers and even on the handheld devices. Many latest security software comes in three basic editions where the basic edition offers a standalone antivirus, one version for handheld devices and another one sort of all-in-one suite where every core modules are attached. Avira Ultimate Protection Suite is that all-in-one pack, but no firewall or spam filter comes built in.

    Pricing Comparison

    Avira Ultimate Protection Suite combines all the basic modules a security suite may need except the firewall, and priced only $139.99 for the bundle. Depending on the licensing, the price may begin from $89.99. Comparing with other programs, Avira Ultimate Protection Suite costs slightly higher. For example, the BitDefender Total Security Suite is priced $69.95 for standard one PC license while the same on Avira costs $89.99. There isn’t a firewall or spam filter, either. However, judging the accuracy we would still say the higher price with Avira is justified.

    Avira-Ultimate-Protection-Suite-2014

    Internet Security

    Even though there’s no firewall built in, still the Ultimate Protection Suite works pretty well at scanning files that are coming to the user’s computer through internet and an in-depth scan for malwares is active in the background as well. The files would be scanned if any malicious activity is detected and the files would later be flagged, with a warning to the user. The internet security on the Avira Ultimate Protection Suite is still very basic, there are lacking some features like social network protection, password vault, and untraceable virtual keyboard, backup and restore features and a firewall. However, to ensure the deleted files have been deleted permanently a file shredder is included within the bundle.

    Why is it still a topper?

    A question is naturally supposed to arise – even though a whole lot of features are absent, how could the Avira be very popular. The performance in detecting and deleting virus off a computer is outstanding; proven through various different independent AV-tests. Avira Ultimate Protection Suite had to go through nearly two dozens of individual tests and the scores were highest in class.

    On the other hand, the accuracy has been proven to be very high. Unlike many other antivirus software, this one hadn’t gone through any hit-and-miss case. If Avira detected a file as infected, the file was truly infected. The modules are mostly online in background, yet no significant slowing down was notified. For example, while most other AV programs in the industry slows down the computer by three seconds on average, it’s only around one second on average for Avira Ultimate Protection Suite. A finalized accuracy rate of 98% has been achieved through various test results; placing this suite one among the top 10 list of 2015.

    Verdict

    For the pricing, Avira Ultimate Protection Suite couldn’t be a wrong pick. However, for people who need features like firewall, parental controls and spam filter – should choose a different program.
