Cherry MX Board Silent Reviewed – The OG Keyboard

Any gamer or computer geek will immediately recognize the brand Cherry.  Cherry is to keyboards what Coke is to soda.  The good news is, just like Coke, there’s more than one flavor to choose from.  For the Cherry MX Board Silent, the board itself is available in black or red, with Cherry MX switches in [...]

Zyxel Aurora Cloud Access Camera Reviewed

This is Zyxel’s first foray into cloud-based cameras, and it’s a worthy competitor to a largely populated market.  The hardware alone is enough to make it a top pick, but the immature software and questionable omission of night vision keeps it from being number one. The camera sensor is made by Sony with [...]

Accell USB-C to USB-A Adapter Reviewed

Part number: U213B-001B. For a retail of $37.99, this little adapter is all you need to provide a USB-A 3.0 port to a USB-C device such as a phone, Macbook Pro, or modern computer. This also supports bi-directional power delivery, so you can charge your device at the same time it retrieves data. I was able to get full [...]

MSI B250M Mortar Motherboard Reviewed – Best Kaby Lake Board under $100?

MSI is no stranger to the motherboard scene.  They’ve made motherbaords for decades now, and have a ridiculous track record and experience.  This particular board was sought out for an HTPC.  As some of you may know, the new Intel Kaby Lake CPUs have built in 4k @ 60fps support with a 10-bit HEVC decoder.

Lexus RX 570 Reviewed

The Lexus LX 570 (see: Urban Assault Vehicle) is a beast of a machine.  There’s enough mass to equal two compact sedans, but with enough style and grace to reign it all in to one, boldly-stated machine.  This isn’t a cross-over, or any vehicle with sacrifices made.  No.  It’s the brazen statement by Lexus [...]

Rosewill Prelude RWH-001 Headphones Reviewed

The new Rosewill headphones that just hit the market are the Prelude RWH-001 ($79.99) and RWH-002 ($59.99). The model scheme is quite easy to decode and remember, with RWH standing for RoseWill Headphone, with 001 being the higher end version, 002 being a very slight step down.

Rosewill SP-7260 Speaker Review

  Review: Before we dive into this review, I wanted to specifically point out that I had it convinced in my mind that these were $200.  All of my assumptions on sound and construction quality were based off this imaginary price point, and even then I was blown away.  So let’s cut that price in half, state [...]
