EpicGear DeFiant Mechanical Keyboard Set @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Feb 20 2017 | 4:03P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just about everyone has jumped into the mechanical keyboard market at this point but rarely do you see companies take their time in tweaking and tuning their products like I have seen with EpicGear. All the way back in 2015 I took a look at their Dezimator X, a pre-release keyboard that they were considering sending to the USB market. Well, my review wasn’t the most promising. They took that information along with a lot of feedback from the mechanical communities and Massdrop and designed a new keyboard. Well the EpicGear DeFiant was released and it has a whole list of customization options, well they have been working on a new set based around the DeFiant with a carrying case and some of the customization options, today I’m going to check it out and see how things have changed.

Face it, you need a pair of earbuds. Whether you are traveling, are on the go, or at the gym earbuds are the way to go. There are literally thousands of earbuds to choose from, but Tesoro has a new pair that really have great features that make them very convenient to use and they sound pretty good as well.

ErgoDox EZ Shine Keyboard
     Sun, Feb 19 2017 | 9:03A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ergonomics, customization, open source, split keyboard. Those are probably the four terms I would use to introduce the ErgoDox EZ Shine: a pre-assembled split keyboard built on a proven concept but with added tweaks to make this your keyboard, not what someone else designed for you.

QNAP TurboNAS TS-1635-8G 16-bay 10GbE NAS Server Review
     Sat, Feb 18 2017 | 4:03P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It lacks an HDMI output and its Annapurna AL-514 Quad-Core CPU may not be the top of its class but thanks to its 16 SATA 6Gb/s bays, two built-in SFP+ 10GbE ports and 8GB of DDR3L RAM the TurboNAS TS-1635-8G has everything it needs to be at the center of your office network.
