Ecolink Firefighter Z-Wave Plus Smoke and CO Audio Detector
     Thu, Feb 22 2018 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this review we will take a look at an alarm audio detector that features Z-Wave Plus communication, allowing it to be integrated with SmartThings and other Z-Wave controllers. The Ecolink Firefighter is the device in question, and I picked one up at The Smartest House for about $40 in hopes that I would end the uncertainty surrounding my previous attempt to integrate my smoke detectors using a contact sensor.

Corsair K68 RGB Keyboard Review
     Tue, Feb 20 2018 | 6:51P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
How could you possibly improve on a backlit mechanical IP32 rated keyboard? By adding full RGB illumination of course. Corsairs new K68 RGB not only features IP rated dust and water resistance but also makes full use of the CUE lighting software for an almost infinite number of lighting customizations. It is currently available with official Cherry MX Red switches, and for a £119.99 the added RGB lighting benefits have a lot to live up to when considering the original single colour LED K68 can be purchased for £89.99. The K68 RGB will sync with any existing corsair RGB peripherals, but does it sync with you?

Logitech MX Master 2S Wireless Mouse Review
     Tue, Feb 20 2018 | 5:05P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Logitech MX Master 2S isn’t a cheap mouse coming in with an MSRP of $99.99, but it does its best to justify that cost with a number of extra features firmly targeted at the professional and creative audiences. It feels great in the hand, though does come in on the heavier side due to the large enclosed battery. I appreciated the gesture button and the adaptive scroll wheel was nothing short of fantastic."

"I’m sure at some point you’ve had a bad PC setup. Maybe moving into a new place, waiting for a new desk to arrive or you just ran out of room.

We will are going to pick 20 each month and feature them as 20 of the Worst PC setups for that month. Here are some of the bad ones from January."

Thermaltake Core P90 Black Tempered Glass Review
     Tue, Feb 20 2018 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is tricky to describe the Thermaltake Core P90 Tempered Glass as it is unlike any PC case we have ever seen before. That’s a bold statement but a quick glance at our photos and video will confirm we are giving you the genuine low-down as the main part of the chassis is shaped like a giant steel Toblerone. Add four shiny steel poles on each side to support two 5mm thick tempered glass panels and you have a curious structure that can either stand on end using the supplied feet or be laid down ... something like a V-angle car engine. Theoretically you could wall mount this chassis on VESA mounts but that seems like a scary proposition as the weight is significant.
