Apotop Wi-Copy Personal Cloud Storage and Wireless Router
Apotop Wi-Copy Personal Cloud Storage and Wireless Router
In this review we will be looking at the Apotop Wi-Copy (DW21) which is touted as being a personal cloud storage device and wireless router, perhaps a bit like the Kingston Mobilelite Wireless series we have covered. For those who are not familiar with them, Apotop is a brand of Carry Technology Company Limited that was founded with the mission to develop innovative storage and portable wireless products to enhance productivity of mobile devices.
Cougar 700M Gaming Mouse and Speed Large Mouse Pad
Cougar 700M Gaming Mouse and Speed Large Mouse Pad
For this review, Cougar has sent over a new mouse, the rather futuristic looking 700M gaming mouse. The 700M does not have the look of a traditional mouse, and it looks as if it is poised to transform at any moment to join Optimus Prime in battle. We will find that while this design may look like it is from another galaxy, it offers features that make it very appealing for every day use (here on Earth).
Evercool Venti Heatpipe CPU Cooler
Evercool Venti Heatpipe CPU Cooler
Matched up against bigger, beefier, and more expensive heatpipe coolers I felt that the Evercool Venti didn't have a chance to compete. I was wrong, as the test results show that it is able to cool off the CPU about as well as some other coolers on hand from NZXT and Noctua. Apparently bigger isn't always better, and a more modestly sized heatpipe cooler such as this can offer users high performance cooling in smaller spaces.
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
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.

Mach Xtreme MX-ES 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive
Lately most storage media manufacturers focus in the production of USB 3.0 compatible flash drives that offer good performance levels and capacities at reasonable prices (targeting the main consumer base is the obviously thing to do). However i do miss the time when manufacturers would focus most of their resources in the design and manufacture of the fastest flash drives possible (remember the kind of performance the first dual and quad channel flash drives delivered?) aimed towards people who could really use the extra boost in performance. This is not to say that there aren't extremely fast USB 3.0 flash drives in the market as we speak but there's always room for improvement, in most cases anyways. The latest USB 3.0 compatible flash drive line released by Mach Xtreme Technology is called the MX-ES (MXUB3SES) and promises read/write speeds of up to 170-185MB/s so as always we just had to take a closer look. nikktech.com

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 G1 Gaming Graphics Card
NVIDIA's GeForce 900 Series has been a long time coming and gamers have anxiously awaited it. NVIDIA has been using the Kepler architecture for quite sometime and when Maxwell was introduced last year we only saw the entry-level and budget friendly cards. When we finally got word that we would be seeing performance segment Maxwell cards let's just say we got excited. Today we will be looking at our first review of a GeForce 900 series card and it comes in the form of the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 G1 Gaming. For starters the GeForce GTX 970 has 1664 CUDA cores, 104 texture units, 64 ROPs and packs 4GB of GDDR5 memory. Normally this card would have speeds of 1050 MHz core and 1178 MHz boost, but Gigabyte has overclocked their version to speeds of 1178 MHz core and 1329 MHz boost. thinkcomputers.org
