Tesoro Gandiva H1L Laser Gaming Mouse
Tesoro Gandiva H1L Laser Gaming Mouse
The aesthetics of the Tesoro Gandiva H1L laser gaming mouse are the first thing that grabbed my attention, and despite the solid performance of the device, they are the first thing I would like to comment on in the conclusion. The body is plastic, but the finish on the upper surfaces looks like brushed metal. Couple this finish with the way the pieces are cut and assembled and it looks like you have something that has been crafted out of aluminum or steel.
ICY DOCK ICYRaid 2-Bay USB 3.0 Drive Enclosure
ICY DOCK ICYRaid 2-Bay USB 3.0 Drive Enclosure
The performance of the ICY DOCK ICYRaid 2-bay USB 3.0 drive enclosure is quite impressive. While the transfer rates while in a RAID 0 configuration were very fast, the rates achieved in RAID 1, Big, or JBOD were not far behind. Connected to your PC for backup purposes, a RAID 1 configuration would be great to allow for redundant backups of your data that could still be read/written at 180MB/s or more.
Cougar 600M Laser Gaming Mouse
Cougar 600M Laser Gaming Mouse
After a few weeks in use, I have to say the Cougar 600M laser gaming mouse is very comfortable. It is more comfortable than the 700M, and perhaps more so than any other mouse that I can recall using. It fits my hand well, the texture allows me to get a good grip, the buttons are well laid out, and I find the feedback of the buttons to be just right. I can use it for hours on end without any discomfort, and overall it has a very natural feel to it.

Western Digital Sentinel DX4200 16TB Windows Storage Server
Western Digital has been expanding its presence in the network attached storage market, with a handful of products intended to appeal to the home user, as well as few more intended to appeal to small to medium businesses. A few years back they launched the Sentinel DX4xxx series of 4-bay Windows storage servers, and in this review we will be taking a look at the latest offering in this series - the 16TB Sentinel DX4200.
NewerTech Power2U AC/USB Wall Outlet
NewerTech Power2U AC/USB Wall Outlet
Today we are going to take a look at something a bit different from the usual items found at Bigbruin.com, but it could make using all of those other items much more convenient. What we have is the Newertech Power2U AC/USB wall outlet, which will basically replace an existing wall outlet with not just a pair of 3-prong 120V receptacles, but also a pair of USB ports for charging your devices.
D-Link DCH-S150 Wi-Fi Motion Sensor and DSP-W215 Wireless Smart Plug
D-Link DCH-S150 Wi-Fi Motion Sensor and DSP-W215 Wireless Smart Plug
D-Link is perhaps best known for their networking products, but they do have a line of connected home products to complement the routers and access points people may think of first. Today we will be looking at the DCH-S150 motion sensor and the DSP-W215 smart plug. In addition to these two items, they also offer a wireless camera to round out their connected home product line.

From Around The Web
Noctua NH-D15 CPU Tower Air Cooler
Austrian company NOCTUA, known for their silent yet efficient processor coolers, released last year their behemoth NH-D15 cooler. The successor of their successful NH-D14 had to have even more performance while keeping the noise level still comfortable for day to day living room operations. This cooler is designed to handle the heat output of the latest hexa and octa-core crunching processors without breaking a sweat, thus for people who don't overclock or for those that don't run high wattage setups this cooler is pure overkill. Time to pop the package and see what Noctua has in store for us with their flagship NH-D15 tower CPU cooler. madshrimps.be
Antec Mobile Products Sugarcube Bluetooth Speaker
Antec's Mobile Products division or AMP has been slowly expanding and adding new productsto their portfolio. One of the latest products is the Sugarcube, which is a mini portable Bluetooth speaker. The size of the Sugarcube makes it easy enough to throw in your backpack, purse, laptop bag or even have sitting in your desk. The speaker itself features a 40 mm driver and even has a built in microphone for taking calls. Will this speaker make it onto your list of mobile products to get? thinkcomputers.org
Raijintek Themis CPU Cooler
As a start, have some well-designed and performing products. Know your market and have an interesting product range. Raijintek certainly have an interesting range of CPU coolers including the Themis CPU Cooler, one of nine CPU coolers in their range. We are going to review the Themis CPU cooler today, a standard sized ATX range cooler. So if you have a need for a standard size CPU and one from an emerging manufacturer, read on. hardwareslave.com
Tests Of Intel Sandy Bridge & Ivy Bridge vs. Broadwell
Chances are if you have a Haswell ultrabook/laptop, you're probably not looking at upgrading to a new Broadwell design unless your Haswell laptop had hardware issues, you really need a longer battery life via more power efficient hardware, or you just fall in love with one of the new Broadwell devices. If you're running an Ivy Bridge or Sandy Bridge laptop on the other hand, it might be time for an upgrade to get faster Intel graphics and greater power efficiency. Here's some preliminary figures I have for showing off the new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Core i7 5600U compared to some older SNB and IVB laptops. phoronix.com
ZOTAC GeForce GTX 960 AMP! Edition Video Card
Many of NVIDIA's partners are producing super quiet video cards that run with lower power, running on the new Maxwell GPU. One of those cards is the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 960 AMP! Edition which offers all the base features but also has a factory overclocked GPU. Naturally, we're wondering how well it can do 1080p gaming while staying cool and quiet, so we put the card through some hard work in the lab to find out. futurelooks.com
Shuttle Barebone XH97V
By sporting one of the latest Intel chipsets, Shuttle has built another barebone from their Slim-PC series, which can accommodate processors from the latest Haswell or Haswell Refresh series, up to 16GB of SODIMM RAM, extra storage via the full-size Mini-PCIe slot, additional expansion thanks to the half-size Mini-PCIe slot (for example a WLAN card), no less than two 2.5'' drives and also one slim optical drive; the tray which accommodates the slim optical drive can also accommodate one extra 2.5'' drive if there is no need to use disks. madshrimps.be
Thermaltake Core V21 Micro-ATX Case
The Core series by Thermaltake launched with the E-ATX full tower Core V71 last year. Since then, Thermaltake has expanded into the mid-tower (V31, V41, V51) and mini-ITX (V1) form factors. The Core V21 that Benchmark Reviews will take a look at today rounds out Thermaltake's lineup with their first micro-ATX Core offering. At first glance, the Core V21 shares many design similarities with the other Core chassis. As is true with many things in life, looks can be deceiving as the V21 is the first Core chassis to officially offer a multitude of motherboard orientations. While it arrives in stock format with a horizontal motherboard layout, it can be transformed in a matter of seconds to a traditional or inverted layout. benchmarkreviews.com
BeQuiet Pure Rock Heatsink
On the test bench today we have BeQuiet's Pure Rock heatsink - a 155mm tall tower cooler built around four 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and paired with one of BeQuiet's 'Pure Wings 2' low noise 120mm fans. frostytech.com
Crucial Ballistix Elite DDR4-2666 16GB Memory Kit
So far we have taken a look at two different DDR4 kits from Crucial. Up first we had their JEDEC kit, which ran at the DDR4 default speed of 2133 MHz. The next kit we got our hands on was the Ballistix Sport kit that had some nice heatspreaders and ran at 2400 MHz. Now we are ready for Crucial's top of the line DDR4 kit, which is the Ballistix Elite. The new Ballistix Elite DDR4 memory features a completely redesigned heatspreader from the DDR3 version and speeds that start at 2666 MHz. Today we are going to be taking a look at the BLE4K4G4D26AFEA kit. thinkcomputers.org
Luxa2 GroovyW Bluetooth Speaker
One of the popular devices found within the iDevice section of CES 2015 this year was bluetooth speakers. Unfortunately, bluetooth speakers have gotten a bad-rap for being exactly what you pay for. Turns out, the only way for a company to truly flourish in this busy and competitive market is to revolutionize it: a high quality product with a low price tag. Well, that is exactly what Luxa2 has done with the Luxa2 GroovyW Bluetooth Speaker. technologyx.com
