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.

I myself travel a good bit for LAN parties, with them ether being at a friend’s house or a larger LAN event like Pittco events right here in Pittsburgh. Traveling and carrying around a big case can sometimes be a pain. Then again there are not very many mATX cases that will suit the needs of gamers and fit their larger graphics cards and heatsinks. But Thermaltake was nice enough to send us over their Armor A30 case for us to take a look at. Let’s see if this case will suit my needs and the need of other gamers out there.
