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.
Canary Wireless All-In-One Home Security System
Canary Wireless All-In-One Home Security System
The item up for consideration in this review takes the basics of an IP camera and adds several interesting features that transform it into a fairly comprehensive security system. The Canary wireless all-in-one home security system combines a high definition surveillance camera (with night vision and motion detection) environmental monitoring (temperature, humidity, and air quality), alerts via your mobile phone, and an integrated alarm rated for 90+ dB.
ecobee3 Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat with Remote Sensor
ecobee3 Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat with Remote Sensor
Controlling your HVAC system is incredibly easy through either the ecobee3 Wi-Fi smart thermostat, apps, or web portal. The touch screen responds quickly to your input and menus are easy to navigate. The thermostat always displays the current temperature and outdoor temperature and weather icon. As you approach the thermostat the display will change, centered will be your current temperature with a humidity reading just above that.
Tesoro Excalibur Spectrum Keyboard
Tesoro Excalibur Spectrum Keyboard
I am very impressed with the Tesoro Excalibur Spectrum keyboard. Before I even turned the lights on I was very pleased with it due to how sturdy the unit as a whole was, as well as how the keys felt while in use. To me, a good gaming keyboard doesn't have to have ridiculous embellishments and a shape that adds nothing to the performance. The Excalibur Spectrum is definitely understated, until you turn the lights on.

Happy Thanksgiving!

SilverStone ML08 Mini-ITX Slim Case
Hot on the heels of Benchmark Review's look at the Fortress FTZ01, SilverStone sent over their latest iteration of the mini-ITX "Z" chassis. Based off of the Raven RVZ02, today we have a chance to look at the Milo version: the ML08B-H. Following the same internal layout the Milo ML08 squeezes the same component clearances into an even slimmer chassis with some new tricks. New tool-less drive trays, a more accessible interior and two completely thermally isolated compartments identify this HTPC-oriented "Z2" case. Follow along as we take a closer look at the SilverStone ML08. benchmarkreviews.com
HyperX Predator 240GB M.2 PCIe SSD
With the advent of X99 and Z170 you will see resurgence in storage importance starting with M.2 leading towards NVMe, SATA Express and other PCI Express based storage connections. While SATA devices will remain inexpensive the real power and speed comes from direct PCI Express connections between storage and the CPU. hardwareasylum.com
SilverStone Tundra TD02-Lite AIO Liquid CPU Cooler
Nowadays it almost feels that wherever i look i see manufacturers doing their best to cover even the last person in the market with their products. Take AIO liquid CPU coolers for example. As i type these lines in the market there are numerous such models from a large number of manufacturers not only with different length (120/140/240/280/360mm) and thickness (25/27/30/32/38/43/45/49mm) radiators but also with different type of tubes (rubber/FEP) and various performance pumps (2400/2500/2600/2800/2900/3600/3800RPM). This of course is not the same as custom tailoring a AIO liquid CPU cooler for your system but with the amount of available models right now things have gotten really close to that. SilverStone recently updated their Tundra TD02 line to include three new models the TD02-E, TD02-Slim and the TD02-Lite which we have here with us today. nikktech.com
Thermaltake Riing LED RGB Fans
For the most part if you are doing a PC build fans come into play. Now typically your case will come with a few fans, but they are typically not enough. If you get into water cooling then you are going to want to get fans that are specifically made for water cooling, or have a high static pressure. Well Thermaltake has you covered with their new Riing LED RGB fans. These fans are made specifically for radiators and feature a LED ring that goes around the frame of the fan. thinkcomputers.org
QNAP TS-563 Network Attached Storage Server
I have the opportunity to work in the Information Technology market and I get to work with some cool technology. Recently, I've been focusing more and more on visualization and network storage. To put it simply, we have the ability to run multiple virtual servers off of a couple of physical servers and some form of network attached storage. modders-inc.com

TT eSports Challenger Prime Keyboard
Here at KitGuru we review many a mechanical keyboard, with some costing in excess of 100. Today's keyboard, however, is aimed squarely at the user on a budget. Priced at just 27.99, the TT eSports Challenger Prime is a membrane and rubber dome, rather than mechanical, keyboard. If you are after a new gaming keyboard, could this be the one for you? kitguru.net
