Kingston HyperX Predator SHPM2280P2H/480G 480GB PCIe M.2 SSD
Kingston HyperX Predator SHPM2280P2H/480G 480GB PCIe M.2 SSD
There is a new breed of SSD on the market that can provide insanely fast transfer rates, and the Kingston HyperX Predator SHPM2280P2H/480G 480GB PCIe M.2 SSD is the first of these to land at Bigbruin.com. With read speeds exceeding 1400MB/s, and write speeds in excess of 1000MB/s, this drive is definitely fast. While some of the other drives used in this review are older and not nearly as high end - the point of reference is very good for those considering an upgrade.
D-Link DHP-701AV 2000Mbps AV2 2000 Powerline Adapter Kit
D-Link DHP-701AV 2000Mbps AV2 2000 Powerline Adapter Kit
The DHP-701AV is a powerline adapter kit which uses the electrical lines in your home to transmit data, meaning you don't have to run traditional Ethernet cables or worry about the limited range of a wireless connection. The DHP-701AV is rated for 2000Mbps, which is extremely fast for such a device. In this review I will see just how fast it will go on my home's electrical system, and compare it to a few other similar devices.
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.
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.

AKRACING AK-6014 Black/Blue Gaming Chair
For years most of us have been purchasing office chairs which as stated are built for an office and not focused around comfort. Even the expensive "Executive" chairs aren't built for long term seating comfort. hitechlegion.com
Deepcool Assassin II CPU Cooler
Deepcool's original Assassin CPU cooler came out in 2013 and one of the largest and best performing coolers available. 2014 brought in the Lucifer, which we tested and it proved to be one of the best coolers available at the time. It is now 2015 and Deepcool has released the successor to the original Assassin, the Assassin II. This massive air cooler features a dual tower design, two cooling fans (140mm and 120mm), 8 nickel-plated copper heatpipes and its own 4-port fan hub. thinkcomputers.org

HIS Radeon R9 390X IceQ X2 OC 8GB Video Card
We are indeed dealing with a refresh of the previous Hawaii XT GPU now baptized Grenada XT, featuring GCN 1.1, 6200 million transistors, 2816 shading units, 176 TMUs, 64ROPs and 44 Compute Units. The available VRAM is now 8GB instead of 4GB GDDR5 and now runs at higher frequencies than on 290X cards by default (1500MHz, 6000MHz effective); this surely helps when running multiple cards for a CrossFireX setup and using multiple monitors. Speaking of the frequencies, the defaults of the GPU on OEM cards have been raised to 1050MHz and with its pre-overclocked card HIS has added extra 20MHz. madshrimps.be
Asrock Z97 Extreme 4 Motherboard
Offering a lot more features for the same price or as their competitors seems to be ASRock's style, and it certainly has served them well and in turn, the consumers get more value. modders-inc.com
Sapphire Radeon R9 Fury Tri-X OC Video Card
AMD tried something daring with the Fury X, HBM, heavily compacted PCB design and an AIO cooler. The card is pretty cutting edge and the first of a new generation of designs and technologies centered on shacking off old news such as GDDR5. The launch of the Radeon Fury X caused a lot of stir across the internet, not only because of AMDs balls to push innovation, but because the cards are also in short supply, with some review samples, including our own, having some issues. hardwareslave.com
OCZ Vector 180 240GB SSD
The Vector 180 from OCZ takes part from their high-end offerings and besides the useful Power Failure Management Plus (PFM+) addition, we do also benefit from the ShieldPlus warranty which implies no shipping costs and no extra hassles. Thanks to the OCZ Barefoot 3 M00 controller, the performances of the drive are top-notch and succeeds to stay in top for both read and write operations which is great for gamers or the usual workstation activities. madshrimps.be
DXRacer OH/IS166/NB Iron Series Gaming Chair
If you're like me you probably don't think of a computer chair as something that should provide comfort, you consider it a necessary piece of furniture that allows you to interface with your system. hitechlegion.com
Seagate 4TB ST 400VN000 NAS Hard Drive
It is no secret that I am a storage junkie. Everyone that visits this site should have figured that out by now. With as much data as I store on my network(s), I am always on the hunt for a better hard drive to (over)populate my NAS and servers. Desktop drives are affordable but not ideal for NAS/Server storage while Enterprise drives are way to costly for the average person. Seagate thinks they have created the perfect drive for your NAS (and mine) and it goes by the name NAS HDD, It stores an impressive 4TB, and it is very inexpensive. Can it do enough to displace my current drive of choice? computingondemand.com
