Evesham Axis Inferno GT X2 review
The Microsoft wireless keyboard is everything we’ve come to expect: excellent feedback and quiet operation. The mouse is also well designed and equally at home with gaming or browsing the Web.
Some important extras accompany the Inferno. The first two years of the warranty are on-site, followed by a third year of return-to-base service. Microsoft Works 8 is also bundled, along with Roxy Easy Media Creator 7 for getting the most out of the DVD writer.
The closest competitor to the Inferno is Mesh’s all-conquering Matrix Xtreme Pro, and it holds a significant edge over the Evesham. The Evesham has a very slight advantage in terms of 3D performance, thanks to a pair of top-end cards versus the Mesh’s one. However, a single 7800 GTX is hardly what we’d call a compromise, and the Mesh also offers a significantly quicker processor, 50GB more hard disk space and has 2GB of RAM to Evesham’s 1GB. The Mesh’s screen is the same size, and the fact that the Evesham’s TFT is 4ms quicker shouldn’t make a significant difference to your buying decision. So while there’s nothing especially wrong with the Inferno, it’s outpaced in applications by the Mesh, which also offers a far better set of components and a more attractive case for just £53 more.
