LG Booth Tour at CES 2016

We have posted the video that accompanied our CES 2016 coverage from the LG booth. Check out the full article here - but you can simply enjoy the video below.

Star Wars Magic - Video of the Day

This is pretty cool and maybe a little disheartening how much CGI there is in Star Wars. Regardless, the way it comes together is pretty awesome.

 

Lian Li at CES 2017

Lian Li came back to CES 2017 with a few updates for their exciting products including USB 3.1 support via a module designed to be mounted to the rear of many of their tower cases. They also showed off some USB-C cables that work with current motherboards and bring this to your favorite last-generation Lian Li box.

One of their big debuts was the update to the  DK-04 adjustable table that also is able to house a pair of systems. The DK-04 could hold one system, but this standing desk is large enough to hold two systems and two employees could easily work at the same time. It's a monstrous beauty that I think everyone that stopped by asked if they were sending out review samples. The price to entry is a little steep at around $1800, but you have to keep in mind that in addition to being a unique and gorgeous Lian Li case, it's also an electric height-adjustable standing desk.

They've done a bit of work redesigning some of their cases to look a bit more modern and have added metal mesh accents to cases such as the upcoming PC-V3000, but one of the nicest cases overall that they have is the PC-09WX.  It's almost a cube case and has tempered glass, all aluminum build and tons of room, along with incredible looks. It's one of my favorites, but the image below doesn't do it justice.

For the DIY and hardware tester, they are working on a new test-bench that looks incredible. It answers pretty much all the questions, needs and desires of a hardware reviewer including a cover so temperature testing is now relevant. Previous test platforms have been open-air and while that makes it easy to swap hardware, temperature testing and load performance weren't comparable when put in a closed case. This new platform fills that need - and does it with a magnetic Plexiglas cover. It's super simple to use and configure however you need.

Lian Li has some great products already and there are some absolute gems in the works right now. Many of these products will be available here in the next month or two and we are excited to work with them more as they have absolute top-notch products.

With paper book sales climbing, Amazon is apparently quite interested in pushing their Kindle products a little more. In fact, the current deals on Kindle for Prime members is better now than on Black Friday. If you've been thinking on picking up a Paperwhite, you can now get one for $90 - and the entry-level Kindle is a mere $50. More details at the link below.

If you’ve got Prime and enjoy reading, Amazon’s offering some of the best Kindle discounts we’ve ever seen right now, with $30 off the entry level models, and $50 off the rarely discounted Voyage. The $50 price point on the entry-level model brings it into impulse purchase range, but just remember that it doesn’t include a backlight.
