Synology DiskStation DS418play NAS Review

Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices have definitely evolved over the past few years. Yes they are there to give you a reliable data backup for your files, with easy access to these files over the network, or even over the internet. But many consumers are looking for a device to store, and more importantly be able to stream media to all of the different devices in their home. Synology's DiskStation DS418play allows you to not only stream HD video content to these devices, but 4K content as well. It does all of the heavy lifting, transcoding this content so even the smallest, under-powered devices can be streamed to. Being a Synology NAS the DiskStation DS418play is also loaded with Synology's DSM which gives you access to all types of tools for home and small business use. Let's get some drives in the DS418play and see what it can do!

Viotek GN27D 27-inch Curved 1440p 144Hz Monitor Review

Not that long ago we took a look at Viotek's 32-inch GN32Q, which was their 1440p curved 144Hz display with a really cool rose gold design. While 32-inches is a good size, it seems most serious gamers feel a 27-inch or 24-inch display is really the sweet spot as you really don't have to move your head around at all the view the entire screen. Viotek's GN27D features a 27-inch curved VA panel with a 1440p (2560 x 1440) resolution, a 144 Hz refresh rate, and FreeSync. Compared to the GB32Q the GN27D definitely looks more like a gaming display with its all black design and slim stand. Even better is that this display is only $369.99 on Amazon, making it one of the most affordable 27-inch 1440p 144Hz curved display out there. Is this display worth picking up?

SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD Review

High performance portable storage is becoming more affordable and rightfully so. Being someone who works with 4K video having fast portable storage is important.

Could this be the best portable solid state drive we've seen? Read on as we find out!

Raijintek Orcus 240 Liquid CPU Cooler Review

We’ve mentioned it before and it’s still true today, the AiO market is jammed full with competition making innovation a struggle for even the most experienced Engineers and R&D teams. Enter the Raijintek Orcus 240 all in one liquid cooler. Immediately you notice the cylindrical device attached to the tubing and know that something is different here. While most companies are sticking with the tried and true pump on block combo the German designed and Thai built Orcus 240 (thank you Raijintek for the simple name) took the pump and placed it externally on the tubing. This left space for a reservoir/flow meter on top of the block and of course you also find RGB leds everywhere. No doubt innovation was at the top of the bill for this cooler, but let’s find out what that nets Raijintek in terms of performance, ease of use, and quality.

KitSound Voice One Smart Speaker Review

Smart Speakers are and have been one of the most popular products in the tech scene over the past couple of years.
