Just think. A large clear windowed panel with an all black sprayed interior, drive mounting that is very well thought out, semi tool-less designs and a special place for that AIO or all in one 240 X 120mm hydro cooler. They even offer the gamer an indirect intake air cooling from the side gills to keep the front nice clean and less noisy and you get that “Monster Corsair Obsidian” look on the front end with the faux brushed aluminum anodized look of a plastic front end. No one will know but you and it beats the other cases that are in this price range by a country mile. Would you believe it? Well truthfully I am slightly skeptical too, but I really am rooting for Corsair’s newest 100R Carbide Series Case to make a true believer out of me, but we will see as the Review continues on. So let’s see if this nice looking “Econ-o-Box” can stand up to a gaming setup and how will it fit the needs? Will it be a viable alternative and a budget saver to use the Corsair Carbide Series 100R or do we need to look further into the higher priced Cases?
Portable Bluetooth speakers have really taken off in the past few years. They make playing and sharing your music with friends extremely easy. They are small enough to throw in a backpack or laptop bag and can be used with any device that has Bluetooth support. It seems more and more Bluetooth speakers are being taken with us, on camping trips, to the beach, etc. With that a more rugged Bluetooth speaker is needed. Divoom thinks they have that Bluetooth Speaker in their Voombox Outdoor. It is a portable Bluetooth speaker with a more rugged design and a water-resistant case that protects its components from splashing water and dust. Read on as we see what this Bluetooth speaker is all about…
Last year we took a look at Kingston’s original HyperX Cloud Gaming headset and there really was not much to not like about it. Now on its second iteration we are quite excited to see what Kingston has done to make this headset even better. The biggest change is the addition of 7.1 virtual surround sound via a USB controller with DSP sound card. Do not worry though you still have the ability to use the Cloud II with a 3.5 mm plug if you wish. Kingston has pretty much retained the same design with the Cloud II as we saw on the original headset. This means you have that brushed aluminum build with a very comfortable headband, stitched HyperX logo, and two sets of earcups. Is this the gaming headset for you? Read on as we find out…
Twenty is an interesting name for an audio product, but once it’s known that Twenty provides 20 watts of power per channel, its name immediately makes sense. Griffin originally released Twenty when Apple’s AirPort Express was popular and tech products with rounded edges were all the rage. Slide into 2015 and Griffin has redesigned Twenty to be a centerpiece for Bluetooth home entertainment. 2015’s Twenty has sturdy metal speaker terminals, a weighted aluminum volume knob, and a modern design that will fit in with any home’s decor. Twenty’s latest incarnation also supports AAC and aptX Bluetooth codecs, while retaining an optical input and subwoofer out from its past form. Twenty is ready to transform your current audio setup into a stylish masterpiece.
Corsair has been selling all in one liquid coolers since these coolers first started hitting the market. In fact without them it’s possible this category would never have gotten off the ground. With such a broad line of AIO coolers keeping them busy, it’s been some time now since Corsair has made an addition to their 280mm category. Today we’re going to be taking a close look at the H110i GT. This dual 140mm unit boasts some fresh aesthetic designs as well as some really cool new technology. Follow along as we find out if this GT reboot is really a luxurious high performance cooler worthy of the GT moniker or just another AIO with a fancy looking name.
It seems everyone I know has a portable battery charger these days. It first started with phone cases that has extra batteries on them and now it has evolved into a vast variety of portable battery chargers. Because of this and the popularity of mobile products many companies who we typically know for other products have started up mobile divisions. One such company is Antec. Antec Mobile Products covers all things mobile including Bluetooth speakers, portable battery chargers, headphones and more. Today we will be taking a look at their Lifecard, which is a smaller portable battery charger that also doubles as a card holder / money clip. Read on as we take a look…
ROCCAT’s RYOS gaming keyboard series is quite popular with gamers. Now made up of four different keyboards they have quite the offering. Last year we took a look at the RYOS MK Glow and now we are taking a look at the RYOS TKL Pro. The RYOS TKL is in the tenkeyless form factor that we saw on the Tt eSPORTS Poseidon ZX. That form factor is a favorite of many gamers and I actually prefer it as well. Besides this form factor the RYOS TKL Pro comes in four different Cherry MX key switch flavors, per-key illumination, a built-in wrist rest and of course ROCCAT’s legendary gaming software. Is this the gaming keyboard for you? Read on as we find out!
If you own any type of mobile device you know keeping it charged is a pain. You lose the charging cable that came with the device, that cable breaks, or you lose the wall adapter. It just happens and it is annoying. Well Patriot who we typically know for their memory and solid state drives has an easy way for you to charge your devices that makes it much more convenient. The product I am talking about is the FUEL iON kit which is comprised of a phone case and charging stand. The thing that makes this kit different from other charging devices is that it features a magnetic power transfer pad that not only will charge your device without a “real” connection, but will also hold your device securely in place.

NZXT is a company that we typically know for their PC cases and cooling devices. They have made a great name for themselves in these markets. Well at CES this year they announced a new product that brings them to a brand new market. The product is called DOKO and it is a PC streaming device. PC streaming and streaming services have become extremely popular over the past few years. It seems everyone is coming out with a streaming box or device. We know NZXT puts great quality into their cases so we hope they can bring that to the DOKO. The DOKO is also strictly a streaming device, you cannot load apps on it or does not come with pre-loaded apps. The DOKO does have some very unique features and we think that is what sets it apart from other streaming devices out there. Will this device become a staple in our home theater setup? Read on as we find out!
This Fractal Design Define R5 is not the first Define R5 to be assembled. There have been others before it and they are the Mid-tower silent partner series of the Fractal Design Label. The Fractal Design Define R5 is made for the addition of plenty of parts, custom and not so custom, all in one units, but also it is made for less noise, deadening vibration, and built to a high of standard of quality and excellence in and out that seem to defy their economical prices. An example is the Power Button looks like it belongs to a luxury car and the outer steel and inner insulation is hefty and you know by just having these parts in your hand that you are not just picking up some cheap lightweight panel cover. The steel panel is heavy and the window is beautifully clear and the isolation is thorough but not interfering even in cable management which is a trade off most take in stride when buying a quiet and insulated case.
