Bezalel Wireless Charging Products Review

Wireless charging for mobile devices is something that is finally becoming more mainstream, sadly iPhone users had to wait for the iPhone 8 and iPhone X to finally get wireless charging. Well Bezalel has been giving iPhone users the ability to wirelessly charge their phones since the iPhone 6 and has been offering wireless charging solutions for any other phones that supports it. Today we are checking out three products from Bezalel that will get you started with wireless charging. We have the Latitude Wireless charging case, Futura X Wireless charging pad, and the Omnia Wireless car charger.

Drevo Joyeuse 96-Key Wireless Mechanical Keyboard Review

The last keyboard from Drevo that I took a look at was the Calibur, which actually turned out to be one of my favorite keyboards of 2017. So getting a new keyboard from Drevo it definitely has a lot of live up to. Today we have the Joyeuse, which is a 96-key keyboard that features low-profile mechanical switches, an aluminum alloy housing, wireless capability, white LED backlighting, and a super-thin design. Drevo tells us this keyboard is really made for office settings and typists, so we wouldn't call it a gaming keyboard, but we are going to put it through the paces...

Havit HV-TPC68 USB C Hub Review

USB Type-C is something we are seeing a lot more, not just on motherboards, but on laptops as well. The Type-C connection not only is smaller, but is also the same connection use for Thunderbolt 3. With many new laptops opting for USB Type-C and having Thunderbolt 3 there is a lot of bandwidth there that really is not used, especially when it comes to Ultrabooks. The common thing now with Ultrabooks is to have two Type-C ports and possibly one other normal Type-A port. That is really limiting if you want to connect more than one device. Also one thing that seems to be missing from most new Ultrabooks is a card reader. So that is where the new USB Type-C hubs come in and today we are checking out the Havit HV-TCP68, which gives you three USB 3.0 Type-A ports, a card reader, HDMI, and a Type-C port which can be used for charging. Let's see if it is the perfect accessory for your Ultrabook.

Tile Sport Bluetooth Tracker Review

If there is one thing I always do it is misplace my keys. Even though I have a hook where they should go I still forget to put them there. That leads to me running around the house looking for them before I have to leave. I'm sure many of you have experienced this and know how frustrating it can be. Well that is where Tile comes in. Tile is a small little device that you can attach to your keys, put in your wallet, in a laptop bag etc and allows you to easily find that item by ringing it with your smartphone. Conversely if you've lost your smartphone you can press the button on Tile to ring your phone. The app also will show you the last known location of your tile on a map, which can be very helpful. We are checking out the newer Tile Sport, which has a more rugged design, is waterproof and has twice the range of the original Tile.

In Win Aurora RGB Fans Review

It seems there are RGB fans everywhere these days, almost every company we know makes them. We have In Win's Aurora RGB fans up for review today. These fans are In Win's second forte into the RGB fan realm and it seems they have took a lot of time to get things right. The fans can easily be daisy-chained together, offer vibration dampening, can be connected and controller via an RGB header on your motherboard, or with the included controller you can customize them with In Win's application. On top of that the 3-pack, which we are reviewing today, comes with 2 RGB LED strips so you can really light up the inside of your system! Let's take a look at these fans and see what they are all about!

Patriot Viper Gaming LED Mouse Pad Review

We have often said that 2017 was the year of RGB and tempered glass, and 2018 seems to be continuing the RGB trend, as we saw many new products at CES 2018 that sport plenty of colorful lighting. Not to be left out of the RGB LED mouse pad arena, Patriot Gaming has released their Viper Gaming LED Mouse Pad, which we will be taking a look at in this review. While we have taken a look at a few mouse pads in the past, we have only reviewed one other RGB version, the Corsair MM800. Let's jump right in and see how the Patriot Viper Gaming LED Mouse Pad shines!

Tesoro Gram SE Spectrum Gaming Keyboard

Tesoro Gram SE Spectrum Gaming Keyboard Review

About a year and a half about we took a look at Tesoro's Gram Spectrum mechanical gaming keyboard. This keyboard was extremely solid, offered mechanical key switches, and a slim keycap design. The new Gram SE Spectrum from Tesoro features Tesoro's new optical switches, the same ones we saw on the Excalibur SE Spectrum. These switches use infra-red technology, which is twice as fast as traditional mechanical switches and offers advanced dust and spill resistance. Also since these switches do not have metal components, like traditional mechanical switches, there is no regular wear and tear from constant contact, which allows for a longer switch lifespan. Are you looking for a faster response than your mechanical keyboard to enhance your gaming skills? The Tesoro Gram SE Spectrum might be for you! Let's take a look...

Patriot Viper LED DDR4-3000 16GB Memory Kit Review

Patriot has recently released their latest memory series, the brand new Viper LED. As you can guess by the name these modules will feature LED lighting. While not RGB you have the option to choose from Red or White illumination. The modules have a new heatspreader design, which I have to say is one of the best we've seen from Patriot. The kit will will be taking a look at today is the PVLR416G300C5K which is a Viper Red LED Series kit of 2 x 8GB modules (16GB total) running at 3000 MHz with timings of 15-17-17-35 at 1.35V. Let's get this kit in our test system and see what it can do!

HyperX Cloud Alpha Gaming Headset Review

Back in 2014 HyperX released their original Cloud Headset. It was a headset that offered incredible performance at a great price, at the time it was the undisputed best gaming headset under $100. Then in 2015 the HyperX Cloud II came out, again we were blown away. I have been using that headset as my main headset since reviewing it. So when HyperX told us they have a successor to the Cloud II I knew it had big shoes to fill. On top of great sound performance the Cloud headsets were some of the most comfortable out there. So today we are checking out the new Cloud Alpha, which has a similar design to the Cloud II, but brings with it a new dual chamber driver design. The dual chambers separate the bass from the mids and highs, allowing optimal tuning for cleaner, smoother sound. Let's take a look a see if this headset will become our new gaming headset!

Motherboards

EVGA X299 Micro Motherboard Review

EVGA always has three motherboards for each series they release, typically we see an E-ATX board, ATX board, and Micro-ATX board. Their X299 line is no different and today we are going to be checking out the X299 Micro, which is EVGA's Micro-ATX X299 board. Considering how powerful the X299 platform is you could really build as pretty amazing smaller form factor system perfect for LAN parties. This board supports 2-way SLI, has M.2 support, USB 3.1 support, 802.11ac WiFi, and even RGB header support. If you are looking to build a small, but powerful X299 system this could be the perfect board for you! Let's take a look and see what it is all about!
