    Monster IlluminEssence LED Strip Mood Light Kit

    Monster IlluminEssence LED Strip Mood Light Kit

    DescriptionIt's Black Friday, and that means some new products are available. This year, Monster has made available a new SKU in its IlluminEssence product line - a single LED strip. We've reviewed all of the other products, and expected that this new SKU would work the same way. But, after thousands of views in a few hours and dozens of comments, it was clear that we were wrong. So, we braved the crowds and headed to Walmart to purchase the last unit in our local store so we could try it out.
    Unfortunately, this new SKU was definitely produced separately from the standard SKUs. The packaging is slightly different, and the manual is completely different. But, does that mean that the product is different? We find out!

    iPhone 11 Pro Max

    iPhone 11 Pro Max

    DescriptionThe 2019 models of iPhone are a departure from the last few generations in a couple of ways. First is the change in name for the top two tiers. These devices are given the monicker of iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. Apple loyalists will know that Apple does not usually give a product the Pro name without it truly meaning something. The MacBook Pro, iMac Pro, etc., have significantly higher specs featuring better processors, more RAM, and more storage, plus significantly better screens. The iPad Pro was a massive improvement over the other devices, even adding the ability for a stylus, making it a great productivity device.
    The iPhone Pro, however, does not seem to feature those major improvements. The processor is nothing special compared to the iPhone 11. The RAM and storage are not special, either. The only thing that sets the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max apart from its standard counterpart is the camera array. While the cameras are far better than the iPhone 11, many believe that this is not enough to call the devices Pro.
    The second big change is in the power options. While the iPhone itself still has the old Lightning connector, the other end is no longer a USB-A. Instead, the cable features a USB-C connector, making it more easily compatible with more modern computers, including Apple's own MacBooks, which only offer USB-C. In addition, USB-C allows for higher amperage, meaning that the device can charge faster. This is important because the batteries are larger than previous models, meaning that they would normally take longer to charge. By switching to USB-C, they can charge faster than previous models.
    Our review will be coming soon after we've had an opportunity to use the device. To see all of our reviews, check out our Review page.
