Cooler Master MasterKeys Lite L Keyboard & Mouse Combo Review
     Thu, Sep 29 2016 | 4:02P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master has a history of three keyboard and mouse combos so far (that I know of- Devastator and Octane). This is the MasterKeys Lite combo kit with RGB lighting. This keyboard looks very similar to the more premium Masterkeys Pro L, the new Cherry MX mechanical keyboard. The highlight of the Masterkeys Lite is its ‘mem-chanical’ switch. As you would have guessed by now, it provides the feel of the mechanical keys. Which mechanical key type it emulates? That matters too!!

Posted by: STAFF
For this mini review we will be looking at the GE 13868 Plug-In Outdoor Smart Switch which has a Bluetooth radio built-in.

Zalman ZM-K900M Gaming Keyboard Review
     Wed, Sep 28 2016 | 5:05P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Zalman ZM-K900M is a gaming mechanical keyboard featuring Kailh blue switches with RGB illumination and a slew of lighting effects. What is the main reason to spend money on a “gaming” mechanical keyboard vs a regular keyboard? With membrane based gaming keyboards, your purchase depends mainly on features that you can only utilize during gameplay. But with a gaming mechanical keyboard, your priorities in performance to value are more broad. You’re looking for a long life keyswitch that offers tactile feel and a comfortable typing experience as well. This is what we should all look for in a gaming mechanical keyboard, does the Zalman ZM-K900M live up to their own expectations? We’ll find out in this article for Benchmark Reviews.

Nest Outdoor Security Camera
     Mon, Sep 26 2016 | 9:00A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"While I've tested out various indoor WiFi-based security cameras over the past decade on Phoronix, outdoor WiFi cameras have been a different story. Either through my contacts from Phoronix or through my own personal searching, I've never found an outdoor WiFi security camera that I've liked either due to poor build quality, poor video quality / viewing angles, or other issues but most of the time has revolved around not being well-engineered. That has changed with the Nest Cam Outdoor that was announced earlier this year by the Google/Alphabet-owned company while this week it's finally begun shipping to consumers. I certainly like the Nest Cam Outdoor from a hardware perspective, but the software could still use some improvements."

GE 12718 Z-Wave Plug-In Smart Dimmer
     Thu, Sep 22 2016 | 11:41A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GE 12718 Z-Wave Plug-in Smart Dimmer is a great way for people to get their feet wet when it comes to home automation. The installation is far simpler than the in wall types, but you get basically the same performance. With these currently going for around $40, I think it is a great way for people to see if this whole home automation thing is for them before they dive right into messing with their homes electrical system.

SteelSeries Apex M500 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Thu, Sep 15 2016 | 12:03P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in 2008, SteelSeries brought forth the 7G keyboard with Cherry MX mechanical switches at a time well before gamers would appreciate and demand mechanical keyboards. Many today still scoff at the thought of spending more than $20 for a computer keyboard, yet, the market for expensive mechanical keyboards exploded. We now see a tremendous refinement of price points and features-levels even from the manufacturer featured in this review. Where that puts SteelSeries newest keyboard, the Apex M500 with Cherry MX Red switches, is arguably within the higher-end mechanical keyboard segment for $99.99 from Amazon.

Posted by: STAFF
If the installation of the first in a series of Jasco Z-Wave devices didn't intimidate you then this one might. Many of your lights in your home will be controlled by more than one switch; these are 3-way and 4-way circuits. In order to control these you need to get one or more of the GE Add On Switches. Here we have the Z-Wave GE 12728 In Wall Add On Switch (Toggle style) and the GE 12723 Add On Switch (Paddle style).

Logitech PRO Review
     Wed, Sep 14 2016 | 9:01A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Based on the relatively simple shape of the Logitech G100, the Logitech PRO in its elegance is aimed at the no frills, no compromise competitive gamer. Using their experience and know-how, Logitech have created a lightweight (83g) yet robust mouse by using hard wearing materials, mouse buttons rated for 20million clicks, and mouse feet rated for 250KM surface travel and thus are backing the PRO with a 2 year warranty.

Cooler Master Masterkeys Lite L Combo Review
     Mon, Sep 12 2016 | 10:34A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For those of us gamers or PC users who love the look presented by RGB PC peripherals Cooler Master has something in store for us. In addition to Cooler Master’s cooling units and cases they also produce computer peripherals such as keyboards, mice, headsets, earphones, and mousepads. Cooler Master has just released a mem-chanical (membrane switches with a tactile feel similar to that of a mechanical switch but longer life than conventional membrane switches) keyboard and mouse combo that could potentially make a great RGB addition to a casual home setup/beginner’s gaming rig.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
