We all know looking for a perfect keyboard and mouse for everyday tasks can sometimes be a pain. Not many companies focus on some of the basic needs of most users out there. Most of the time if the product is not gaming related than it is going to be cheaply made and has some weird flower designs. Rapoo has been the number one wireless keyboard and mouse company in China for the past few years and has won numerous I.F. awards. They focus on only wireless devices, and today we are going to be taking a look at their 8900P Advanced Wireless Mouse and Keyboard combo.
Many gamers have heard of the company Roccat before as it is a gaming accessory company based out of Europe. They have been bringing their high end products to the USA for a few years now. One of their big sellers was their ISKU gaming keyboard which had many different macro combinations you were able to utilize thanks to the Easy Shift[+] Zones they incorporated to the keyboard along with the Thumbster keys. Now that Rocact has moved into mechanical keyboards and they have used the ISKU platform and changed a few things around and tossing in some Cherry MX Black switches which lead to the birth of the Roccat Ryos MK Glow keyboard.
A headset of any kind is a very important accessory for your PC. Whether you are gaming or simply listening to music a headset allows you to immerse yourself in what you are doing on your PC. ROCCAT’s original Kave 5.1 headset was a huge hit and their mission with the new Kave XTD 5.1 Digital was to rebuild the successful headset from the ground up. One thing that really sets this headset apart from others is the desktop remote, which acts as an audio command center for your PC. Will this be the best headset we have seen all year? Read on as we find out.

Over the past few months I have been hooking up my phone to my Stereo or PC speakers via a 3.5mm audio jack. Which also means I have to leave it plugged in next to my TV or my PC and when I receive a phone call I then have to remove the phone and answer and redo the whole process when I get off the phone. I have a very nice home theatre system and really don’t feel the need to upgrade to get the special perks of some of the new technology. Portable Bluetooth speakers are great when you’re out on the go but not when you want to be in your house and want to listen to music on your home theatre system. Well over the past few years there have been some options, but they all cost a good chunk of change. A few weeks ago I received the Diamond Wireless Music Receiver which broadcasts over Bluetooth. Lets take a look and see if this wireless music receiver will fit your needs in your house.
2014 seems to be a good year for both PC gaming and console gaming. With so many different games being launched, one of the universal things every gamer needs is a great gaming headset. We need something we can wear for hours comfortably without any issues. Some of us also run into issues of having multiple systems and would love to use the same headset for both. Well it looks like Cooler Master made that headset and called the CM Storm Ceres 500. The CM Storm Ceres 500 is supposed to work on PC/PS3/PS4 and Xbox. You are also supposed to be able to have it hooked up to 2 different systems at the same time and with a flip of the switch go from one system to the other. Now lets see if you will make the switch to the CM Storm Ceres 500.

Who says you can never have enough storage. Well you really can not have too much. I myself have a few different computers around my house for different tasks, and I like to back them up and also share files over the network. External hard drives and enclosures are a great tool for keeping around your house or even on the go. There are so many different enclosures and NAS boxes on the market. Some do RAID, other’s do JBOD, some can hold only 1 drive and some can go up to 4 drives. Some of the cool things with the technology of the past few years is that we now have eSATA and USB 3.0. USB 3.0 offers up to 5 Gbps while eSATA offers less speed at around 3 Gbps. So today we will be reviewing the Vantec NexStar HX2R dual SATA Hard Drive Enclosure, so stick around and see if it would make a nice addition to your desk or office.
