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.
How Bitcoin Processing Units Are Being Used For Mining Digital Currency
How Bitcoin Processing Units Are Being Used For Mining Digital Currency
The new machines can conduct Bitcoin processing at a faster rate as compared to the computers of the past. Moreover, they consume less power and last for a very long period. Field programming gate array processors are connected with the CPUs to enhance their computing power. While selecting hardware for Bitcoin processing, make sure that it has a large hash rate that would deliver spectacular results to the users.
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.
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 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.

ASUS X99-A Motherboard
ASUS has a pretty complete line of X99 motherboards. There are a total of 8 motherboards currently in their X99 lineup and they range from sub-$300 boards to the super high-end of almost $500! With so many different boards it might be confusing, but today we will be taking a look at ASUS's most entry-level X99 motherboard. This motherboard will get you on to the X99 platformfor under $300. The motherboard we are talking about is the X99-A and while it is ASUS's entry-level X99 motherboard it has many great features you just won't find on other motherboards out there. thinkcomputers.org
Gigabyte Brix S BXi7-5500 Broadwell Mini PC
The last time we examined the Gigabyte Brix in April of last year, it performed quite well, but was somewhat noisy and ran hot. Gigabyte has learned from this experience, and has outfitted this latest model--the Brix S BXi7H-5500--with a shiny new Broadwell CPU from Intel. Yes, Broadwell, which are the all-new 14nm CPUs we've been salivating over since before Haswell hit the scene. hothardware.com
Microlab T2 Bluetooth Headset
Priced a little lower than the T1, the T2 is a lightweight and compact Bluetooth headset packed with 40mm drivers and is available in Citrus, Orange and Sky Blue colours against a rubberised black finish. Unlike the T1, it does away with various flashy features, such as being able to fold and various included accessories, making the T2 a 'no fuss' Bluetooth headset solution. However, it does away with the versatility too, meaning it can only be used via Bluetooth. vortez.net
SilverStone Strider Gold 1500W Power Supply Unit
A few days ago NVIDIA released the fastest single GPU graphics card in the market called the TITAN X a real beast featuring a massive 12GB's of onboard VRAM memory, 3072 CUDA cores, 192 TMUs, 96 ROPs, 384-bit wide memory interface and a TDP of 250W. Luckily although a few years back such performance would be far more power hungry today even 4 of these beasts would require a total output of roughly 1000W. Of course although these power requirements are indeed very low for such cards we need not forget the rest of the system components so adding those as well means that you'd certainly need around 1500W to be on the safe side. Unfortunately the market is not really filled with 1500W (1.5KW) power supply units but if you can afford to get 4 ultra-high end graphics cards then you shouldn't have a problem finding a suitable one and the Strider Gold model by SilverStone which we have here with us today could be the right one for the job. nikktech.com
Mushkin Chronos 480GB SSD
Last week I took a look at Mushkins new flagship SSD. Well it just so happens I also had another Mushkin SSD floating around the office to review. This one isn't anything like the Striker. The Chronos is a little older but with that it is also a little better value when you are shopping. Our sample is the big guy with a 480GB capacity but it is priced to compete. So today I'm going to see what is inside of the Chronos and most importantly I am going to figure out if the aging Sandforce controller is still fast enough to justify a purchase for someone who is on a budget. lanoc.org
Sharkoon Shark Zone M20 Gaming Mouse
We look at quite a lot of gaming mice here at KitGuru, many of them sitting over the 50 mark. But what if you only have 25 to spend? Today we are taking a look at the Shark Zone M20 Gaming Mouse from Sharkoon, it boasts many of the same features found on high-end mice, could this be a hidden gem in the saturated peripherals market? Lets find out... kitguru.net
Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-2666 32GB Memory Kit
Although there are higher-clocked kits on the market, Corsair's Corsair Vengeance LPX is one of the few 32GB DDR4-2666 kits that combines speed with relatively tight timings and awesome overclocking headroom. hardwarecanucks.com
Deepcool Steam Castle Case
The Deepcool Steam Castle Case arrived Technic3D. The Castle supports Mini-ITX and Micro-ATX motherboards and have place for 2x 120mm, 3x 140mm and 1x 200mm Cooling-Fans. We will check this and many more in the following review. technic3d.com
Crucial MX200 250GB SSD
Even up to 3-4 years ago none of us here expected to see a time (at least not as fast) when manufacturers would be able to release solid state drives (SSDs) with really good performance levels that would cost as low as USD0.35 per Gigabyte. Of course back then we also didn't expect to see SSD models (at least not for many years to come) that would be able to max-out the SATA III (6Gb/s) standard so i have to say that things turned out much better than we'd hoped (still i think they could had been even better). Further price reductions however as we speak seem to be the primary goal most manufacturers have so more and more models land around the price/capacity mark mentioned earlier in an effort to attract even casual users to the world of SSDs. Crucial just recently released their BX100 and MX200 lines and since we last tested the entry-level BX100 250GB model today we'll be testing their high-end MX200 250GB model. nikktech.com
MSI 970 GAMING Motherboard
Trying to play catch up with the latest and greatest will cost you a pretty penny. The average enthusiast tries to acquire the best technologies for cheap; the same goes for gamers since most everyone wants to save money. If your budget is a little over $200 USD for a motherboard and CPU, finding the right combination could be a challenge. modders-inc.com
