ICY DOCK MB492SKL-B, MB491SKL-B, and MB973SP-2B Drive Bays
ICY DOCK MB492SKL-B, MB491SKL-B, and MB973SP-2B Drive Bays
This review is going to cover 3 newer offerings from ICY DOCK that provide convenient, hot swap access to drives installed in your PC's case. We will look at the ToughArmor EX MB492SKL-B which lets you install two 2.5" drives in a single 3.5" external bay, the ToughArmor EX MB491SKL-B which lets you install one 2.5" drive in a single 3.5" external bay, and the FlexCage MB973SP-2B which lets you install three 3.5" drives in a double 5.25" bay.
Thecus W4000+ 4-Bay Windows Storage Server
Thecus W4000+ 4-Bay Windows Storage Server
The Thecus W4000+ 4-Bay Windows Storage Server is a solidly built product that is well suited to handle the shared storage needs of a small office / home office environment. It does not have all the bells and whistles of plugins and apps available on other NAS servers, but it does run on Windows Storage Server 2012 R2. This interface may be preferred by users in corporate environments, although it may make it less appealing for personal use.
D-Link DCS-2630L Full HD 180-Degree Wi-Fi Camera
D-Link DCS-2630L Full HD 180-Degree Wi-Fi Camera
Today we are taking a quick look at the recently released D-Link Full HD 180-Degree Wi-Fi camera, model DCS-2630L. This camera is part of a new family of cameras which claim to have the widest angle lens available on a consumer fixed camera; a full 180 degree field of view. The DCS-2630L to be reviewed offers 1080P resolution, while the DCS-960L offers 720P. Both have sound and motion detection, microSD card slots, and automatic day/night viewing.
Synology DiskStation DS1515 5-Bay NAS Server
Synology DiskStation DS1515 5-Bay NAS Server
Synology has sent over another one of their Network Attached Storage (NAS) servers for us to look at. Along with all of the typical things we look forward to, this one offers some new features that we are also excited to check out. From the model number we know that it is a 5-bay device, and for this review Synology has pre-populated the bays with 4TB Seagate brand drives, giving us a total of 20TB of storage to play with.
D-Link DCS-2210L HD PoE IP Camera
D-Link DCS-2210L HD PoE IP Camera
The D-Link DCS-2210L HD PoE IP camera has just about every feature one might be looking for with one exception; it is wired only. If you want/need wireless you need to step up to the DCS-2230 but you will give up the PoE. But, for many like myself, a PoE camera offers a lot a flexibility since you only need to run a single cable and you don't have to worry about wireless signal strength where you want to mount the camera.
OSRAM LIGHTIFY LED Tunable White Light Bulb
OSRAM LIGHTIFY LED Tunable White Light Bulb
The Lightify LED tunable white light bulb may not be something you need to have, but you may just find yourself wanting one (or some). It will be nice to be able to turn on a light remotely on the days we go out and don't come home quite as early as we planned. Not only so we can see when coming home in the dark, but also as a security measure to let anyone else think that maybe someone is home.

From Around The Web
TP-LINK AC2600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router
TP-LINK did not go on the Sitecom route of using one of the latest OpenWrt builds (including customization in order to fit the new hardware features), but built on a proven stable software they have built for quite some time now and could have been also seen with their Touch P5 high-end router. Besides that, we are getting the latest MU-MIMO capabilities, a brand new chassis design and the Qualcomm dual-core IPQ8064 Internet processor at its heart, clocked at 1.4GHz. madshrimps.be
Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z RGB Keyboard
Tt eSports has hit the market with an RGB keyboard aiming to attract customers with its low price. The Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z RGB is not only cheap since it is packed full of functions, including mechanical switches, full macro support, multiple lighting effects, and more. techpowerup.com
OWC Aura 1TB PCIe SSD
Considering my rather vocal opposition to Apple's products over the years, it's somewhat amusing that I make daily use of a 27″ iMac, MBA and new iPhone. It is not so much the product as it is internal decisions on build that bothers me, my present MBA being the longest I have ever kept a laptop, eliminating any question whatsoever of product build. Because of its limited storage capacity and Apples horrendous cost for upgrades, it was very close to being replaced, at least until OWC contacted me a week ago asking if we might like to review their latest 1TB Aura PCIe SSD replacement for mid-2013 and later MacBooks. thessdreview.com
Scythe Shuriken Rev.B Low-Profile CPU Cooler
It may not be a new member in the low-profile CPU cooler family but thanks to its very good price/performance ratio the Shuriken Rev.B by Scythe is still a solid choice. nikktech.com
Tt eSports Shock 3D 7.1 PC Gaming Headset
As a mainstream-priced gaming headset, the Shock 3D 7.1 impressed us positively regarding the multitude of sound effects which can be obtained thanks to the C-Media Xear console and thanks to the thick cushion, large ear cups the headset does remain comfortable even during longer gaming sessions. Some of the effects and presets can be accessed right from the buttons placed on the left cup, while the volume wheel is quite large so we cannot miss it . Please keep though in mind that since we are dealing with an USB-only headset, its usage environment is quite limited (only PCs), not being able to work on consoles and on OSX we are missing the software to back it up (so the nice custom effects cannot be accessed at all). madshrimps.be
Tesoro Olivant Gaming Headset
Today we are going to be taking a look at a new headset from Tesoro, the Olivant. Tesoro Project Manager, John Lin, said it right "Gaming headsets require 3 things to be truly epic: sound quality, comfort for long duration use and durability". Tag along and see if the Olivant can live up to the expectations! technologyx.com
Aerocool Aero-800 Black Edition Chassis
We've previously reviewed the Aerocool Aero-1000 White Chassis and liked it. The Aero-1000 chassis got a solid 4.3/5.0 and was also recommended as a great all-rounder. The Aero-1000 is the high end PGS A Series chassis form Aerocool, with the Aero-800 in the middle and the Aero-500 starting the range off. hardwareslave.com
Raidmax Monster II Midi Tower Case
Not too long ago Raidmax released their latest midi tower called the Monster II and today we're checking it out to see what exactly it brings to the table. nikktech.com
