Dome Mouser DMMZ1 Z-Wave Plus Smart Rodent Trap :: Posted On April 25, 2017
Dome Mouser DMMZ1 Z-Wave Plus Smart Rodent Trap
The product up for consideration takes our interest in home automation in a whole new direction! The Dome Mouser DMMZ1 Z-Wave Plus smart rodent trap may be one of the most interesting applications of Z-Wave technology that I have seen. The Mouser has a cat inspired design, as well as a cat inspired purpose. The housing conceals a battery powered electrocution system, as well as a Z-Wave radio to let you know when it has "taken care of" a rodent!
Zooz ZEN06 Z-Wave Plus Smart Plug :: Posted On April 05, 2017
Zooz ZEN06 Z-Wave Plus Smart Plug
The Zooz ZEN06 Z-Wave Plus Smart Plug is easy to setup, works well, looks cool, and offers a few features you might not find in other smart plugs. With the right Z-Wave controller, you will not only get the ability to toggle the plugged in device on/off, but you will also get feedback on the power being consumed from within the app. On top of that, the colors in the LED ring around the outlet provide a novel way to get a general idea of how much power your device is drawing.
Amped Wireless ALLY Plus Whole Home Smart Wi-Fi System :: Posted On March 27, 2017
Amped Wireless ALLY Plus Whole Home Smart Wi-Fi System
The Amped Wireless ALLY Plus Whole Home Smart Wi-Fi System is an impressive approach to setting up a Wi-Fi network that makes it easy to cover your entire house in reliable, high speed access. Setup is easy, and even though my home is much smaller, I am prone to agree that it could cover up to 15,000 square feet. The coverage in the yard was strong and far reaching, which might not be a plus for those in densely packed neighborhoods, but for me it is ideal.
Tenda AC6 AC1200 Smart Dual-Band Wireless Router :: Posted On March 09, 2017
Tenda AC6 AC1200 Smart Dual-Band Wireless Router
The Tenda AC6 offers good range and throughput, and would make for a decent choice for people that didn't rely on wired connections for transferring files. Features like the high powered amplifiers, four large external antennas, and beam forming technology will help carry the signal throughout a typical house with plenty of bandwidth for a typical family. The 100Mbps wired ports are a downer since they would limit traffic on the LAN and WAN.
Show Home 2-Channel Z-Wave Smart Home Plug :: Posted On March 01, 2017
Show Home 2-Channel Z-Wave Smart Home Plug
The Show Home 2-Channel Z-Wave smart home plug is a great option for those looking to include some Z-wave controllable outlets in their home. This one stands out compared to many options on the market since it does not require the replacement of an existing in-wall outlet and it provides you with two independently controllable outlets in one device. You could therefore install it in a permanent location in your home, but you could also move it around as required.
Aeotec DSB45 Z-Wave Water Sensor :: Posted On February 27, 2017
Aeotec DSB45 Z-Wave Water Sensor
The setup of the Aeotec DSB45 was extremely easy, and within just minutes I was able to use the Wink app to confirm just how fast the sensor would alert me to wet and dry conditions. I have placed the one DSB45 by my water heater and I am already feeling a bit of peace of mind from just the ability to receive alerts about the presence of water. I will soon add a Z-Wave controlled valve to have the water cut off if the DSB45 sensor ever detects water in that area.

Cutting-edge RHEED Surface Analysis
RHEED is a reliable method for monitoring thin-film growth, especially with molecular beam epitaxy (MBE), which produces thin films under ultrahigh vacuum growth conditions.

The kSA 400, which is made by k-Space, a worldwide supplier of thin-film metrology tools since 1992, combines a high-resolution, high-speed, and high-sensitivity CCD camera with advanced RHEED-acquisition and RHEED-surface analysis software. This system enables the analysis of virtually any image feature and offers many additional options, for example control of the electron gun for such tasks as acquiring RHEED rocking curves.

Already in its fifth generation, the kSA 400 delivers quantitative results right out of the box. Extensive customer input has helped k-Space make the kSA 400 the industry's most powerful analytical RHEED system and an integral part of MBE, PLD, PVD, and surface science chambers around the world.
Sapphire NITRO+ Radeon RX 580 Limited Edition Video Card
The AMD Radeon RX 500 series was released this week and the new Polaris based graphics card series consists of the Radeon RX 580, RX 570, RX 560 and RX 550. These cards are mostly all based on the Polaris architecture found on the RX 400 series as they use the same cores. AMD tinkered under the hood of the Polaris GPU a bit and took advantage of improvements in the manufacturing process to get higher clock speeds than they could get last year when the RX 400 series was launched. AMD didn't send over any reference models this time around, so we were given the Sapphire NITRO+ Radeon RX 580 Limited Edition graphics card. This is a factory overclocked model and just happens to be the fastest Radeon RX 580 that you can buy today from Sapphire. legitreviews.com

Cherry MX Board 6.0 Keyboard
Unlike most other hardware that gets swapped out frequently, the interaction between a user and their keyboard is a lot more intimate. It is a device that is literally touched every day and is almost an extension of the user's personality. If it is to be used every day and it is to be expected to perform in the same … modders-inc.com

ADATA XPG SX8000 PCIe M.2 Solid State Drive
While we got our first taste of PCI-Express solid state drives in 2016, I feel that 2017 is going to be the year of PCI-Express M.2 solid state drives. Almost every new motherboard that comes out has at least one PCI-Express M.2 slot if not more than that. PCI-Express M.2 drives are extremely fast and take up literally no space inside your case. Today we have ADATA's first PCI-Express M.2 2280 drive, the XPG SX8000. This drive offers read and write speeds of 2400 MB/s and 1000 MB/s respectively. thinkcomputers.org
Kingston Ultimate GT 2TB Flash Drive
A flash drive was dropped at my door a few days back that, not so long ago, I would never have foreseen. It is the Kingston Ultimate GT USB 3.1 Gen 1 flash drive and its storage capacity is an amazing 2TB. Considering that it is probable twice as thick as a normal flash drive, it's pretty amazing that I can throw a device in my pocket, capable of containing 34,000 hours of music, 1000 hours of video or 620,000 pictures. thessdreview.com
Corsair Hydro Series H110i 280mm Liquid Cooler
Even when dealing with an overclocked octa-core Ryzen 7 1700 CPU at 3.9GHz, the Corsair Hydro Series H110i could handle its task with ease, so we have got a maximum of 50 degrees Celsius while running an instance of Prime95 in the Quiet Profile. The noise levels are also very acceptable in this state, since we have measured a maximum of 39.7 dBA, 30 cm away from the test system. madshrimps.be

The latest edition to Corsair's extensive keyboard lineup comes in the form of the K63 compact mechanical keyboard. Aimed at the gaming crowd, the K63 is an entry level keyboard hitting the market at a price point of $80. Now, you may be asking yourself: Doesn't Corsair have multiple budget-based options like the K65 or the K40? What about the K55 with RGB capability? Why should I be interested in the K63? The K63 shines in comparison to the other budget options with it's bed of 100% Cherry MX Red mechanical switches, compact tenkeyless design, red per-key LED backlighting and support for Corsair's CUE software. bjorn3d.com
