The PC case was fitted with two tempered glass side-panel doors that can be opened up at the front side, it also includes aluminum elements, at 139 USD, it isn't that expensive either.

Corsair Obsidian 500D Chassis Review
     Fri, Feb 23 2018 | 2:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

The first thing we did after unboxing the Corsair Obsidian 500D was to wonder when we last reviewed a Corsair Obsidian case. A quick check of the KitGuru archives told us it was the Obsidian 450D back in February 2014 which is a massive gulf of four years. As we say in our video, the 450D and 500D model codes suggest the new Obsidian may have a certain amount in common with the previous 450D however a lot of water has passed under that particular bridge. Both cases are black in colour and mid-tower ATX in size, and that is pretty much the end of the matter. The new 500D dispenses with optical drive bays, gains a power supply cover and has a clean, open interior that promises superb air flow, while the outside is finished with a pair of tempered glass doors with aluminium panels. You would need to have a heart of stone to deny the Obsidian 500D is a smart and attractive case, and we have no doubt some Luddites will applaud the absence of RGB lighting. As we say in our headline, this case is intended for adults.

Batteroo Boost Battery Life Extender
     Fri, Feb 23 2018 | 1:49P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last year I went to a trade show and spoke with the inventor of Batteroo. The presentation almost sounded too good to be true, citing claims that a recent study showed that most discarded batteries had up to 80% of the original energy still stored inside. Of course their device can solve this problem by maximizing the use of all of your alkaline batteries. Currently the product is for sale through Indiegogo and directly from their website, where a 4-pack of AA Batteroo sleeves is $10 plus shipping.

Ryzen 5 2400G
     Fri, Feb 23 2018 | 1:47P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's clear that AMD has an advantage over Intel Coffee Lake parts when it comes to more than just gaming on the integrated GPU. Any application that supports OpenCL acceleration should see additional performance from the more powerful Vega GPU. Real-world use cases are difficult to benchmark, but OpenCL acceleration is utilized quietly behind the scenes in lots of popular applications like Microsoft Office and Adobe's Creative Cloud programs."

OWC Mercury Helios 3 TB3 Expansion Chassis Review
     Thu, Feb 22 2018 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For a media professional, data transfer is everything. The faster one can move and manipulate media, the more efficient the machine becomes. We take it for granted really but the massive work to perfect everything you watch on TV is incredible… and the ability to move media quickly is central to efficiency. This is where Thunderbolt 3 stands out. TB3 increases data transmission to 40Gbps which is 5GB/s theoretically, but breaks down to a maximum of about 2.8GB/s in reality. Where we use to have simple HD files, they have grown to 4K, 5K and now 8K and media of that resolution simply cannot be run through a USB. The trick…is Thunderbolt 3 and the external devices companies envision to solve this speed and data storage problem. This is where the OWC Mercury helios 3 PCIe Thunderbolt 3 Expansion Chassis comes in.
