Powered by 4K resolution and the inherent sharpness of DLP, the BenQ HT3550i home theater projector puts up exquisite detail. On a 100-inch screen I saw individual hairs, the specific weaves in fabric and wrinkles galore. It’s also one of the most color-accurate projectors I’ve recently reviewed, with rich and vibrant reds, greens, blues and everything in between. These two aspects of performance make for a pleasingly realistic image.
Vibrant, accurate colors
Clean image with little video noise
Built-in Android TV streaming
Not particularly bright
Mediocre contrast ratio
Compared to competitors in other ways, however, the HT3550i struggles. Its contrast ratio is on the low side of average, and brightness is far lower than many similar projectors, including the Optoma UHD30 and BenQ’s own BenQ HT2050A. Without bright whites and dark blacks the image simply lacks pop. The HT3550i doesn’t look bad in any specific way, it’s just that its strengths — including built-in Android TV streaming — can’t offset its weaknesses.
We’ll guide you through the process of using Homebrew package manager to install post-exploit security tools on macOS to further assess compromised system vulnerabilities found in your Apple equipment.
In this final article in the Homebrew series, we look at the availability of post-exploit tools you can use to further assess vulnerabilities in computing devices. You can use these to continue following the attack chain in an effort to establish permission escalation, persistence, and pivot from one compromised system to another, extending the attack throughout the network.
This part of the engagement is not about compromising the system initially: That is the exploit phase. But the post-exploit process deals with the initial level of access obtained on the compromised system and evolving it into something far more in order to obtain as much data on the underlying system and any hosts that might be communicating with it over the same network segment and beyond.
By using the proper tools, security admins and penetration testers can perform a deep dive on the system and continue the attack on subsequent systems encountered during the additional reconnaissance process
Despite the company’s focus on crossovers and SUVs, Lexus does still make sport sedans. Bypass the brand’s family-haulers and you’ll find the compact IS, a sweetly styled four-door that’s been heavily refreshed for 2021.
Extremely quiet cabin
Infotainment remains lackluster
No interior storage
Aging transmission stymies performance
I say “heavily refreshed” because, while the IS’ underpinnings and engine options are mostly the same as before, the sheetmetal gets a fantastic makeover. In short, the IS looks awesome. The Grecian Water blue of my IS 300 tester is gorgeous, and the redesigned spindle grille neatly tucks between the new headlights. I never thought I’d end up liking Lexus’ huge grille, but it really works on the IS. There’s a nice little kick toward the rear when you view the car in profile, which emphasizes the wider hips. The fact that the LED running lights span the width of the trunk help with that wide stance, too.
The IS’ platform might be the same, but Lexus’ engineers made a number of tweaks to the suspension components and increased body rigidity for better overall handling. It works,
The IRS relies heavily on tax return information to determine who qualifies to receive a stimulus check and for how much. That makes it tricky if you’re one of the millions of nonfilers in the US; people who aren’t required to file an annual income tax return. In fact, the White House estimates that at least 8 million people didn’t get a stimulus check.
