Kingston FCR-HS4 USB 3.0 High-Speed Media Reader
Kingston FCR-HS4 USB 3.0 High-Speed Media Reader
It is hard to get too excited about a card reader, but the FCR-HS4 is definitely a nice one. While I typically prefer these kind of things to be compact for portability and so I can hide them away in a drawer, since I have been using this one I leave it right out on my desk. It sits nicely under my monitor and gives me quick access to all of my cards without having to go hunting. It looks good, stays put nicely, and as the testing showed it performs very well.
Noctua NH-L9x65 Low-Profile CPU Cooler
Noctua NH-L9x65 Low-Profile CPU Cooler
While the NH-L9x65 is much more compact than the typical CPU cooler, it isn't as small as many others. The key benefit of coolers like the ITX30 and NH-L9i comes from their height... I would not be able to fit the NH-L9x65 in to the Mini-ITX cases that I use (Minibox M350), but the other two (as well as the Titan cooler) do fit. If I had a system with just enough room for a 65mm cooler and demanded the best cooling, the NH-L9x65 would be the choice among those tested.
SpotCam HD Wi-Fi Wireless Video Monitoring Camera
SpotCam HD Wi-Fi Wireless Video Monitoring Camera
Overall the SpotCam HD Wi-Fi wireless video monitoring camera is a strong performer. It costs less than the comparable DropCam HD, while providing basically all the same features. It even includes 24 hours of free cloud storage, but if you require more than 24 hours of storage their rates are quite a bit less than DropCam's. So you can save money upfront and every month/year after that.
How Bitcoin Processing Units Are Being Used For Mining Digital Currency
How Bitcoin Processing Units Are Being Used For Mining Digital Currency
The new machines can conduct Bitcoin processing at a faster rate as compared to the computers of the past. Moreover, they consume less power and last for a very long period. Field programming gate array processors are connected with the CPUs to enhance their computing power. While selecting hardware for Bitcoin processing, make sure that it has a large hash rate that would deliver spectacular results to the users.
Synology Diskstation DS415+ 4-Bay NAS Server
Synology Diskstation DS415+ 4-Bay NAS Server
In late 2014 Synology released another 4-bay NAS server intended to take their award winning designs and innovations to the next level. The new Diskstation DS415+ takes all of the things people have grown to love in terms of the hardware and the DSM interface, and further refines them with user friendly installation features, dual Gigabit LAN ports, hardware data encryption, and some serious horespower under the hood.
Remington iCoffee Opus Single Serve Coffee Maker
Remington iCoffee Opus Single Serve Coffee Maker
The Dial-a-Brew knob on the Remington iCoffee Opus is awesome. I love being able to quickly and easily change the brew size. I also appreciate the extra 2oz it can brew over my Keurig. Using the 12oz setting with a really robust coffee provided a nice travel mug that wasn't too watery. Having 0.5oz increments allows you to fine tune your beverage to your liking much better than Keurig's 2oz jumps.

SilverStone Tundra TD02-E CPU Cooler
Spring signals the fore-coming of summer, but to Benchmark Reviews, it also means time for some cooler reviews. The first manufacturer in our 2015 list is SilverStone. Last week, we reviewed the SilverStone TD03-E, a 120mm all-in-one CPU cooler which served as an update to the already aging TD03. Today we take a look at it's bigger brother, the SilverStone Tundra TD02-E, an astonishingly stylish 240 mm all-in-one CPU cooler. benchmarkreviews.com
+LIFEGUARD 2.1A Dual USB Car Charger
Today I've got a quick review for you today of a product that I think is very useful, it's a dual USB port charger from a company called +Lifeguard. The charger features two USB ports, one is a fast charger and the second on is a standard USB port. The charger is small and well made and it has a nice blue LED in it so you can find the ports in the dark in your car. technogog.com
Cougar 200K Gaming Keyboard
A few months ago I took a look at one of Cougars new mechanical gaming keyboards as well as one of their mice. The 700K was a surpassingly good keyboard, I was caught off guard by a fairly new company that had clearly put a lot of time into developing the 700K. Well today here I am again about to check out another Cougar keyboard, this time though this is a little more of a budget focused keyboard. This is the 200K. Cougar swapped out the Cherry key switches for scissor key switches and cut back on the features. Today I'm going to check it out and see if it still has the pedigree of the 700K and find out if this is worth a look when looking for a cheap gaming keyboard. lanoc.org
Thermalright TRUE Spirit 140 BW Rev.A CPU Cooler
Up and until a few years ago most CPU cooler manufacturers didn't pay much attention to all the consumers around the world who asked for new heatsink designs that wouldn't interfere with tall memory modules and mainboard components. Now i don't really blame the people who designed those CPU coolers since back then size was what would sell to gamers and overclockers alike and if you happen to recall the huge V10 by CoolerMaster (or even the VCool then you know what i mean. Well the arrival of the AIO liquid CPU coolers changed all that since they offered zero clearance issues without asking nearly as much as custom water cooling kits. This "forced" manufacturers to take a new approach towards CPU coolers so in the past 2 years we've seen many models claim to offer zero clearance issues with your memory modules and mainboard components (and most actually deliver what they promise). The TRUE Spirit 140 BW Rev.A is the latest CPU cooler by Thermalright to feature a "slim" heatsink to allow use of even the tallest memory modules and today we're taking it for a ride. nikktech.com
Kingston HyperX Predator PCIe 480GB Solid State Drive
Do we create faster interfaces because of faster devices, or do we have faster devices because of faster interfaces? For questions like these, it is easy to dwindle down to a circular argument like the technological equivalent of the chicken and the egg, but we can always take a look at history. Back in 2010, we have reviewed the OCZ Vertex 2 60GB, an SSD I claimed to be "one sizzling fast piece of storage device for $100". By 2015 standards, pulling a little over 270MB/s for write and about 283MB/s for read in ATTO would have been absolutely laughable. aphnetworks.com
Kingston HyperX Predator PCIe M.2 SSD
Are you in a hurry? Solid state Drive Technology has been serving up data at the fastest rates available to consumers, quickly earning the distinction of 'instant' storage. SSDs built for the SATA interface already make most computers open applications in a snap, but the latest generation of PCI-Express 2.0 based SSDs bring that title closer to the truth. The new Kingston HyperX Predator PCIe M.2 SSD is one such example, and boasts 1400 MB/s read speeds with 1000 MB/s compressible data writes. benchmarkreviews.com
Xiaomi Mi Band Fitness Tracker
Xiaomi is not a brand that most people in North America know, but that could be changing in the next few years. The Chinese company has really made a name for itself in its home market, becoming one of the top manufacturers of Android smartphones and tablets. The Mi Pad is a great tablet, even if it's a pretty blatant copy of the iPad. And then we've got the remarkably affordable Xiaomi Mi Band, a $20 fitness tracker that's arguably just as good as devices five times its price. Is it really all it's cracked up to be? megatechnews.com
