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.
Kingston HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset
Kingston HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset
The Kingston HyperX Cloud II gaming headset are well built and should provide for years of enjoyment. The sound quality is very good for music and movies, and the virtual surround does a good job to simulate that you are in the game. I am never overly convinced by surround sound headsets, but these do work rather well. I found the headset to be very comfortable, and they should be adjustable to suit users with all sorts of head sizes and shapes.
Synology Diskstation DS414slim 4-Bay NAS Server
Synology Diskstation DS414slim 4-Bay NAS Server
Overall your interpretation of the performance of the Synology Diskstation DS414slim may vary depending on your particular use. As mentioned, this unit appears to be designed for entry level users that are just looking for a secure place to keep some family photos, videos, and some other random files. For this purpose, this unit is a fantastic device since the read speeds are among the best we have tested.

FSP Twinkle 65 Universal Notebook Adapter

Kingston HyperX Fury HX426C15FBK4/32 4x8GB DDR4 RAM
With decently tight latencies at 15-17-17-35 and operating at 1.20V out of the box, what can we do if we loosened up the timings and bumped the voltage up to 1.35V? In the past, you can expect at least 10% of overclocking headroom, but it looks like times have changed. In fact, there was only one kit out of the four we tested today that had any shot at beyond its rated specifications; even at that, it was a measly 3% -- I will let you know which kit it is in the coming weeks. For the Kingston HyperX Fury HX426C15FBK4/32 4x8GB, I tried DDR3-2800 at 16-18-18-36, which did not work. aphnetworks.com

A lot of our devices are Bluetooth enabled but not everything is and you sometimes you need a way to make something either transmit or receive Bluetooth signals and that's what the little product I have today for review does. The DBPower BA-800 is a tiny battery powered Bluetooth transmitter and receiver in one and it can makes something that's not Bluetooth enable have Bluetooth functionality.

Moto 360 2nd Gen Smartwatch
We spent some time with LG today at the official unveiling of the company's brand new V10 smartphone and new LTE-equipped Urbane smartwatch. Unlike the so many flagship smartphones that have launched recently, the LG V10 retains a number of features that were popular with savvy smartphone users in previous generations, more specifically, a removable battery and expandable storage. hothardware.com
Mionix Castor Mouse
It's weird, for a long time it felt like I was testing a new mouse every week or two week. More recently though that has almost completely flipped and my peripheral testing has been all keyboards. Well just before vacation and then the LAN I did have a bit of a chance of pace. Mionix sent over their latest mouse, the Castor and asked us to take a look at it. So I've been putting the new mouse to the test in the office while I have been getting caught up on work. Well I finally have a little time to be able to sit down and talk about Mionix's latest mouse and how it performed, so hang on I'm going to go over everything. lanoc.org
Gigabyte X99-SLI Motherboard
Today we will have a look at the Gigabyte X99-SLI motherboard and its features, as well as putting it through some benchmarks to see how the board performs. At first glance we were expecting this board perform nicely on air and water, which as you will see for a budget board it performs quite well even overclocked. Gigabyte is well known for its fleets of motherboards in all series to meet the needs of the end users, from your average home user, gamer, overclocker and extreme overclocker. The Gigabyte X99-SLI caters for your average user and gamer, while overclocking rather well for those who want the bit of extra performance. technologyx.com
