Noctua NH-D15 Heatpipe Tower CPU Cooler
Noctua NH-D15 Heatpipe Tower CPU Cooler
The Noctua NH-D15 heatpipe tower CPU cooler is a beast that is ready to tame the heat from any of today's high powered processors. With six heatpipes, two towers of cooling fins, and the ability to support a pair of 140mm fans, undersized is not a word that could describe the NH-D15. In testing, it was able to outperform other high quality heatpipe coolers, including two from Noctua which are also highly respected for their performance.
LUXA2 GroovyR Micro Wireless Bluetooth Speaker
LUXA2 GroovyR Micro Wireless Bluetooth Speaker
I didn't expect to be impressed by the audio performance of such a compact, lightweight speaker. At 120mm in diameter by 32mm tall, and just 230g (much of which has to be battery), I didn't think it would have what it took to fill a room with accurately reproduced sound. I was wrong. While the bass from the GroovyR is definitely tame, it covers the full range of sounds very well and there is absolutely nothing tinny about what you hear.

Synology Diskstation DS415play 4-Bay NAS Server
The hardware video transcoding could be a big selling point to people with large movie collections that might not all be recorded in common formats. Couple the hardware transcoding, DLNA certification, and the media serving plugins / apps, and the DS415play is all set to be the hub of your home entertainment, no matter what your other hardware includes... smart TVs, Media Center PCs, mobile devices, media players, etc.

For someone who is looking for a new router and wants to have the ability to get all of their current and (foreseeable) future wireless devices connected with ease, the D-Link DIR-880L AC1900 Wi-Fi router is a great choice. You get support for wireless b, g, n, a, and ac - as well as four Gigabit wired ports. The user interface is visually appealing and easy to navigate, and getting any of your devices connected to each other and the Internet should be simple.
Motorola Moto G on Republic Wireless
Motorola Moto G on Republic Wireless
I think the Motorola Moto G with Republic Wireless service may hit the sweet spot for many people tired of paying high cell phone bills. The Moto G is a solid phone that performs really well, and the network in my area had less dead zones than T-Mobile and AT&T. As is the case with all discount providers there are some concessions you make to get these lower prices, but the concessions at Republic Wireless seem minor.
Thecus N2310 2-Bay NAS Server
Thecus N2310 2-Bay NAS Server
The Thecus N2310 2-bay NAS server is a solid option if you are looking for a 2-bay device that doesn't waste your time and money with fancy extras and just gets down to serving your files from a RAID 0, 1, or JBOD array. For a small network this could be a good setup for sharing files and streaming media, and testing proved it will allow you to read or write at up to almost 90MB/s.

SanDisk Ultra 64GB microSD Card
For $30 you can vastly expand your Android phone or tablet. Most of what this card is used for is read operations, and the 30MB per second read speed is more than adequate for that. ocmodshop.com
Crucial DDR4-2133 32GB Memory Kit
Intel recently launched their Haswell-E HEDT (high-end desktop) processors and accompanying X99 chipset. With that came the introduction of DDR4 memory to the consumer market. DDR4 memory has been used in server implementations, but the X99 chipset is the first consumer platform to support DDR4 memory. DDR4 brings with it faster data rates (2133 MHz standard), higher capacity levels and improved efficiency over DD3. Today we will be taking a look at our first DDR4 memory kit and it comes from Crucial. We are taking a look at their 32 GB (4x8GB) DDR4-2133 Kit (CT4K8G4DFD8213). This is Crucial's JEDEC kit so it is not fancy at all and does not come with a XMP profile. The kit runs at 2133 MHz with timings of 15-15-15-36 at 1.2V. thinkcomputers.org
Thecus N2310 2-bay NAS Server
Today we are going to look at one of the latest products in Thecus' range of NAS servers - the N2310. This comes in at the bottom of their range, designed for home and small business users on a budget. We are interested to see where they have compromised on features to keep the price down. kitguru.net
SanDisk Ultra II SSD Review (240GB)
SanDisk is a world leading producer in NAND flash and NAND flash products. From consumer SD cards and USB drives to OEM flash storage, SanDisk is everywhere in this market. Just a few months ago, they released their highest end, enthusiast class SSD, the Extreme Pro. It came in the market and offered some of the best SATA 3 performance we have seen and an unprecedented 10 year warranty at the time. Now, SanDisk is focusing on the mainstream consumer market with the release of their Ultra II series SSD. thessdreview.com
Sandberg Credit Card 850mAh Powerbank
Can any of you even recall how many times your smartphones have ran out of battery while you're out having drinks far away from a power socket? Having a power socket is not even a solution since i bet many of you had your smartphones ran out of battery while attending a wedding or a meeting since you obviously don't carry the wall charger with you. Portable battery packs are a valid solution to such circumstances but you really can't carry one around with you at all times since although very small they are more than what you can fit in the pockets of your shirt or jeans. A couple of years back certain manufacturers came up with a very smart idea which basically involved using several flat battery cells inside a credit-card like enclosure which you would be able to carry around you at all times whether that would be inside one of your pockets or inside your wallet. However it wasn't until recently that we began to see such solutions that feature enough battery juice to recharge most smartphones up to a full time and so since we wanted to take a look and see how far this "innovation" has progressed today we will be testing the latest Credit Card 850mAh powerbank by Sandberg. nikktech.com
CM QuickFire Stealth Keyboard
This might be a good minimalist keyboard if you love mechanical keyboards and want to make light use of it with your laptop, but we really can't recommend it for heavy typists or gamers. ocmodshop.com
ASUS GTX750 Ti STRIX OC Edition Video Card
Kitguru rates the GTX750ti very highly - we have reviewed a handful of partner cards since Nvidia launched the model earlier this year. For the modest asking price it delivers solid frame rates at 1080p - but it is the Maxwell architecture that deserves special praise. These cards run exceptionally cool and take all the power they need direct from the PCI e slot. We like the combination of high efficiency, low noise and modest heat output - Nvidia seemed focused this year on reducing power demand which can only be seen as a positive step forward. kitguru.net
Silicon Power Blaze B06 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive
When a friend asked me a couple of days ago about what review i was working on and i told him that we had 6 of the latest USB 3.0 flash drives to hit the market plugged into our primary test rig he pointed out to me that testing such drives is not the most exciting thing but at least it's quite easy to do. For good or bad he's right since it's indeed not very exciting to test storage devices in general and yes it's also easy since such tests take less time to finish compared to the vast majority of PC hardware and electronics. Judging however by how everyone here used to research each and every single USB flash drive in the market prior to purchasing one (when we were teenagers) and also by the amount of Facebook messages we've received by many of you asking for such reviews i think that in the end it's very important for us to check and find out what's the best drive you can buy with your hard earned money. nikktech.com
