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.
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 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.

From Around The Web
Antec Mobile Products Lifecard Portable Battery Charger
It seems everyone I know has a portable battery charger these days. It first started with phonecases that has extra batteries on them and now it has evolved into a vast variety of portable battery chargers. Because of this and the popularity of mobile products many companies who we typically know for other products have started up mobile divisions. One such company is Antec. Antec Mobile Products covers all things mobile including Bluetooth speakers, portable battery chargers, headphones and more. Today we will be taking a look at their Lifecard, which is a smaller portable battery charger that also doubles as a card holder / money clip. thinkcomputers.org
HyperX Predator DDR4 3000Mhz CL15 Quad Channel Memory
Performance aside the Predator modules are quite stylish and while they lack fancy lights, multicolor heatspreaders and diagnostic ports they do come with some excellent looking heatspreaders that are extremely sturdy and carry a good weight. hardwareasylum.com
Crucial MX200 SSD (500GB/1TB)
The Crucial MX200 is yet another in the many steps that Crucial has taken on over the past few generations, their SSD lines building slowly upon the last since their first release so long ago. Replacing their M4, the M500 introduced a plethora of new features such as hardware encryption, data path protection, and power loss protection. The higher performing M550 built upon the M500 by introducing a newer controller and had faster performance. And when released just last summer, the MX100 built upon the M500 series design and introduced 128Gbit 16nm NAND to take our Top Value award with ease. thessdreview.com
Sapphire Vapor-X R9 290x 8GB Tri-X Video Card
Sapphire has long been AMD's leading partner in the GPU arena. With the growing popularity of 1440, 2K and 4K gaming, manufacturers have been taking "liberties" with the GPUs such as factory overclocks, higher power delivery, and more memory (VRAM). The Sapphire Vapor-X 290x is slightly different from other 290x's as it houses 8 gigabytes of RAM vs. 4 Gigabytes. modders-inc.com
NZXT DOKO PC Streaming Device
DOKO is a new PC streaming device from NZXT which allows connecting peripherals remotely thanks to the USB Over IP technology and connects to our TV via HDMI (1080P@30Hz). For optimal experience, we are recommended to connect the DOKO directly to our router on a wired connection and the same thing must be said about the station we are streaming from; if the bandwidth is not sufficient because of an improper connection, we may experience desyncs, black screens or even artifacts. madshrimps.be
AfterShokz Bluez 2 Bone Conduction Bluetooth Headphones
The thing that makes the AfterShokz stand out is the "Bone Conduction" technology. They Bluez 2 don't fit in your ears - or over your ears. They sit in front of your ears - on your cheekbones and then conduct the sound (vibrations) generated by the transducers inside your head - while leaving your ears open. The beauty is that you can not only listen to music, movies, audiobooks, podcasts and phone calls, you can also still hear the world around you. bcchardware.com
Fractal Design Define R5 Case
This Fractal Design Define R5 is not the first Define R5 to be assembled. There have been others before it and they are the Mid-tower silent partner series of the Fractal Design Label. The Fractal Design Define R5 is made for the addition of plenty of parts, custom and not so custom, all in one units, but also it is made for less noise, deadening vibration, and built to a high of standard of quality and excellence in and out that seem to defy their economical prices. An example is the Power Button looks like it belongs to a luxury car and the outer steel and inner insulation is hefty and you know by just having these parts in your hand that you are not just picking up some cheap lightweight panel cover. thinkcomputers.org
PNY CS2111 XLR8 SSD (480GB)
If you have been into computers any time over the past few decades, you probably know of PNY. They are an American company that manufactures graphics cards as well as all things flash. Over the past few years they have joined in on the SSD industry, offering some very competitive products. Today, we have one of their latest creations on our test bench, the CS2111 XLR8. thessdreview.com
Getting Data Out of the Cloud Before Disaster
As the size of information stored in the cloud grows increasingly larger, IT managers must plan on getting data out of the cloud when it's critically needed during disaster recovery. For some businesses, the cloud is a place to deposit a second copy of data already retained locally. For others the cloud is primary storage, where unique data is created and modified. Problems arise in both cases: when local data is lost due to fire, flood, or theft, when the data is too large for a timely transfer across limited Internet bandwidth, or when a cloud provider shuts down. This all begs the question: is redundant data in place? benchmarkreviews.com
Kingston HyperX Skyn Mousing Surface
Taking the HyperX Skyn out of the brown corrugated box revealed it was packaged in a very nice folder. This was a very appropriate form of packaging in my standards, as it shows the company is considerate about shelf space and efficiency. Taking a closer look at the front of the folder reveals the design, being overall black with a splash of red, stays true to the family of products Kingston offers with their HyperX line. Aside from that, another intelligent design I would like to mention is the slightly raised glossy lettering for the company name, product name, and the clear image of both the mousepads. aphnetworks.com
