Creative Stage Air Compact under-monitor Soundbar
     Mon, Jan 14 2019 | 5:06P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"After charging the unit, we have used it for listening to several top 40 recent playlists, while having it connected to our Sound Blaster AE-5 sound card via Aux-in; the resulting sound was surprisingly loud for the sound bar size, with good highs representation and decent bass thanks to the included passive radiator. We have then loaded our files to a FAT32-formatted drive and after a bit of learning curve, it is quite easy to jump through tracks or stop/pause, via the provided hardware buttons."

Razer Naga Trinity 2018 Gaming Mouse Review
     Mon, Jan 14 2019 | 9:03A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new 2018 Razer Naga Trinity had three side plates to appeal towards FPS, MMO and MOBA players at the same time, especially those who don’t play a single genre. Definitely something unique. Having such mice as a daily driver might be a hate or love relationship because the main audience is still MOBA/MMO. It is not every day you get to see something like this. Because nobody did this…yet. Razer is probably the first to go crazy with 12-switch side-grip mouse. It was made for MMO gamers. This widens the genre to make Naga family (or one of its variants) to be adopted by a wider circle.?
