Bond Home Smart Ceiling Fan Controller
The Bond Home Smart Ceiling Fan Controller is a device that promises to make your non-smart home devices smart, providing they are controlled by RF (Radio Frequency) or IR (Infrared). Using the Bond Home you can not only control ceiling fans; but air conditioners, garage doors, etc. Not only does it claim to give you full control of these devices remotely, you also can control these devices with Amazon Alexa and Google Home products.
ZOOZ ZSE18 Z-Wave Plus Motion Sensor with Magnetic Base :: Posted On August 04, 2018
ZOOZ ZSE18 Z-Wave Plus Motion Sensor with Magnetic Base
The ZOOZ ZSE18 Z-Wave Plus motion sensor with magnetic base is an excellent choice for anyone looking to add a motion sensor to their Z-Wave powered home automation system. It is compatible with a handful of hubs, and I found that it works very well with SmartThings. Whether you want to use it as a security device, or merely to make your life more convenient by turning on lights as you pass by in the dark, it will work very well.
EZVIZ 4-Camera 4K Security System with 2TB HDD NVR :: Posted On August 02, 2018
EZVIZ 4-Camera 4K Security System with 2TB HDD NVR
EZVIZ continues to expand their line of cameras and NVR systems. The EZVIZ 4K UltraHD wired kit includes four cameras and a 2TB NVR, and it is one of their newest systems. A while back I reviewed the EZVIZ Husky and was impressed with the build and image quality, as well as the excellent night vision. When EZVIZ sent over the 4K UltraHD Wired Kit I was eager to see how this system would stack up considering my high opinion of the Husky.
D-Link DCS-8300LH 1080p WiFi Indoor Security Camera :: Posted On July 31, 2018
D-Link DCS-8300LH 1080p WiFi Indoor Security Camera
In this review we are taking a look at the recently released D-Link Full HD Wi-Fi indoor security camera model DCS-8300LH. This camera appears to be positioned between their 1080p 180-degree camera (model 2530L) and their 720p camera (model 935L). It features a 1080p resolution, with a more standard field of view (FOV), and also has their newer design shape that features a large round housing at the top which contains all the guts to the device.
Kingston UV500 960GB 2.5 Inch SSD :: Posted On July 30, 2018
Kingston UV500 960GB 2.5 Inch SSD
In the spring of 2018 Kingston introduced their UV500 line of mSATA, M.2, and 2.5" solid state drives available with capacities ranging from 120GB all the way up to 1920GB. All drives in this series are based on Marvell brand controllers, and are Kingston's first 3D NAND-enabled solid state drives to feature full-disk encryption. In this review we are going to take a look at a 2.5" UV500 SSD with a capacity of 960GB that was sold as part of a "SSD Upgrade Kit".
BACtrack C8 Police-Grade Breathalyzer :: Posted On July 13, 2018
BACtrack C8 Police-Grade Breathalyzer
A few weeks back we were at a press event and saw the BACtrack display for their new C8 police-grade breathalyzer device that features something they call ZeroLine. BACtrack is the #1 seller of breathalyzers in North America and was founded in 2001. Their new C8 builds on their past expertise by adding ZeroLine, which gives you an estimate of when you'll be sober. Turns out it might be longer than you think.

From Around The Web
Falcon Project X VR Ready Gaming PC
The Falcon Project X VR Ready Gaming PC is a mid-range PC that attempts to provide ample gaming power inside a chassis that's impressively compact - and for a price that undercuts most of its competition. We give you the full low-down on this system to let you know if it is worth buying.
Corsair STRAFE MK.2 RGB Mechanical Keyboard
What is the main reason to spend money on a "gaming" mechanical keyboard vs a regular keyboard? With membrane based gaming keyboards, your purchase depends mainly on features that you can only utilize during gameplay. But with a gaming mechanical keyboard, your priorities in performance to value are more broad. You're looking for a long life keyswitch that offers tactile feel and a comfortable typing experience as well. This is what we should all look for in a gaming mechanical keyboard, does the K70 MK.2 live up to these expectations?
iMovR Lander Desk
In the world of sit-stand desks there are quite a lot of options and the prices are all over the place as well. There has been many studies that show sitting at your desk all day is bad for your body. Sit-stand desks give you the ability to choose to sit or stand. These have become so popular that even Ikea makes a sit-stand desk. iMovR has sent us their Lander motorized sit-stand desk and we've been using it for the past few weeks. All of the iMovR desks are made entirely in the USA, can be assembled in minutes without tools, and they even have an app that lets you control the desk and much more. Now this desk has a starting price of $999 so it is quite the investment for the ordinary person. Is it worth it?
Equipped with a 60% faster Marvell Armada 385 SoC resulting in overall performance gains of 20% the brand new AS1004T V2 NAS by ASUSTOR offers a much higher bang for your buck compared to its predecessor the original AS1004T.
Arozzi Mezzo V2 Gaming Chair
The latest affordable model in the Arozzi line of gaming chairs is called the Mezzo V2 and after spending roughly 3 weeks with it we can say with certainty that it's worth checking out if you're in the market for one and you're also on a tight budget.
Toshiba EXCERIA M303 MicroSDXC Card
The new EXCERIA M303 microSDXC cards from Toshiba are aimed towards 4K or Full-HD content recording and can fit the smallest available devices; these are rated as having V30 Video Speed Class and from our tests, we got near 70MB/s writes, which should be enough for most multimedia content.
AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Processor
This past year has been a real exciting one for processors. Before AMD launched their original Ryzen processors they were basically written off and dominated in the CPU world by Intel. AMD changed all of that with Ryzen, which proved to be one of the most exciting product launches in AMD history. It gave real competition to Intel in mainstream desktop space, so much so that Intel rushed out their "Coffee Lake" chips which came with increased core counts. At that time Intel remained on top with their 6-core, 12-thread Core i7-8700K, but today we are still going to see if that remains true. We have the new flagship AMD Ryzen 7 2700X which is a 8-core, 16-thread part which retails for only $329. Will this be the new king in the mainstream desktop platform?
Acer ED273 27in Monitor
Curved screens used to cost a considerable amount of money, so it's surprising to see Acer's ED273 deliver its curvature in 27in form for around 170. Lots of 27in screens are more expensive than this even without the curve - so this is already a potential bargain.
CHERRY KC 6000 Slim Keyboard
The new KC 6000 Slim keyboard does come with a premium look and is ideal for people that enjoy laptop-style keys, even when working with desktops. The SX CHERRY switches are silent and offer a low-key travel of just about 2.5mm; these are rated for 10 million keypresses so we would recommend the keyboard for productivity work as well.
Viotek GN24C 24-inch Curved 1080p 144 Hz Monitor
Over the past few months we've been checking out Viotek's gaming display offerings. We first took a look at their GN32Q 32-inch Curved 1440p 144Hz display, then their GN27D 27-inch Curved 1440p 144Hz display, and today we have the GN24C. This display is a 24-inch curved Full HD (1920 x 1080) VA panel with a 144 hz refresh rate, and FreeSync support. Full HD displays with a 144 Hz refresh rate are really popular right now for gamers as that is what mid-range graphics cards can push (144 FPS) with the settings on games turned all the way up.
