Posted by: STAFF
"Up for review today I have an excellent product, one that I’ve come to love honestly, it’s the Crimson Pro mechanical gaming keyboard from a company called Sentey and it features Cherry MX Black switches.

Poweradd Pilot X1 5200mAh Battery Charger Review
     Wed, Jan 14 2015 | 12:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I’ve got a quick review for you today of a small portable battery from Poweradd called the Pilot X1. This battery is 5200mAh in capacity and should provide about two charges for most phones out there today. The Pilot X1 is small and portable, really pocket size and it’s well made and best of all it’s inexpensive coming in at under fifteen dollars. The Pilot X1 has a single USB port on it for charging but it also has a built-in LED light so it would be great for emergency situations or taking it with you on a hike or camping.

Griffin Survivor Case for Samsung Galaxy S5 Reviewed
     Wed, Jan 14 2015 | 12:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today on the examining table is the Survivor Samsung Galaxy S5 case by Griffin. It seems these days a lot of companies are make tough and rugged cases. Is it us as a society that is getting more clumsy without technology or is our technology able to take less of a beating than it used it. Food for through, but that is a discussion for another forum. This survivor case is an all-inclusive case that protects all sides of the phone, including a special screen protector for the screen, if you happen to be one of those clumsy people who is looking for extra protection. However if you find that I just insulted you by calling you clumsy and you are not, I would still read on and disregard my comment as this case is even for those of you who are not clumsy, but are looking for extra protection. The survivor case is living up to its name in overall protection for your S5. Take a look below…"

HyperX Predator DDR4 Memory Review
     Wed, Jan 14 2015 | 12:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The HyperX Predator memory we are going to be looking at today not only offers fast speeds of 3000MHz out of the box, but also offers the efficiency of lower voltage; we can see some great potential with additional performance once overclocked. We will be comparing results from Kingston’s (HyperX) previous line up from its DDR3 series to see if these claims line up.”

Corsair HX750i Power Supply Review
     Wed, Jan 14 2015 | 9:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Corsair has become known as a quality supplier of quite a few different products over the past few years, one of those being power supplies. Power Supplies have become a big part of their business and their professional HX series has been out for the past few years, being updated every so often. Just recently Corsair updated the line with the HXi series giving the units an 80PLUS Platinum certification, which means the unit will be 89% efficient at 100% load and 92% efficient at 50% load. The HXi series units also feature a fully modular design so you only use the cables that you need, have a Zero RPM mode which means the cooling fan will only spin up during high load and HXi series is Corsair Link ready so you can monitor and log fan speed, voltages, efficiency and more. Will this be the perfect power supply for your next build? Read on as we find out."

Western Digital My Cloud EX2 Review
     Wed, Jan 14 2015 | 9:01A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have previously looked at and reviewed the Western Digital My Cloud EX4 and were extremely impressed with it, so much so we awarded it out Editor's Choice award. Now Western Digital has sent us their next model down, the My Cloud EX2 4TB (WDBVKW0040JCH). These two units are near identical in hardware, aside from the EX2 having two less drive bays, no display on the front, and a smaller processor(1.2GHz vs the EX4's 2.0GHz), and completely identical in software and graphical UI. With that being the case, rather than re-visit all the areas covered in our WD My Cloud EX4 Review, we will focus on performance testing this go around.

Sentey Lumenata Pro Gaming Mouse Review
     Wed, Jan 14 2015 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This week I had the pleasure of reviewing the Lumenata Pro by Sentey, a professional gaming mouse that goes above and beyond to deliver the satisfaction you paid for. Sentey has delivered a phenomenal product with minor flaws that can be overlooked, perhaps the most enticing feature is that the price point allows it to compete with better established mice while staying at a relatively low price. If you are looking for a comfortable, customizable, good looking mouse that won’t put a dent in your wallet I recommend you keep reading!

Pentium J2900 CPU Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Tue, Jan 13 2015 | 1:17P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently, we analyzed the ASRock Q2900M motherboard, which brings an on-board Bay Trail-D Pentium J2900 CPU. In this article, we will compare the performance of this processor to other three low-cost, low-TDP CPUs that we reviewed recently: the Sempron 2650, the Celeron J1800, and the A4-5000 to see whether the Pentium J2900 is faster than its competitors or not."

Posted by: STAFF
"When most people think about the Tt eSPORTS brand from the folks at Thermaltake, they usually turn their attention to the world of PC gaming with products like the Level 10 M Mouse. They also have headsets on the console side of things, but the mobile gaming market is definitely on the rise.

Kingston Technology E50 Enterprise 240GB SSD Reviewed
     Tue, Jan 13 2015 | 12:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"While Kingston’s E100 (Enterprise) SSDs have the high end consumers covered, their more affordable E50 series helps bring costs down considerably. The E50, which we’ll be checking out today, offers many enterprise level features including integrated AES 256 bit encryption. In a collaborative effort with my good colleagues at Puget Systems, we tested some Kingston E50 240GB SSDs on a capable LSI SAS controller to see how they perform."
