iLuv TimeShaker Micro Radio / Pillow Shaker

We have just posted up our review of the iLuv TimeShaker Micro Radio. This is a Bluetooth alarm clock/radio that features USB charging and a "pillow shaker" to help you get up without waking your partner. If you have a hard time getting out of bed, strap this to your forehead before you go to sleep and you'll wake up with a start and get to work on time. You might think you're having a stroke as well, but that will just make the day better when you find out you're healthy! Take a look at our review for all the details.

The shaker feature of the clock is spectauclar. For the first couple of mornings I put it under my pillow as recommended. After that I would gently slide it up the sleeve of my girlfriend and watch her freak out in the morning as I yelled "spider" when it started to vibrate. It was a very effective wake-up call.

Genius Gila MMO/RTS Professional Gaming Mouse

We have just posted up our review of the Genius Gila MMO/RTS Professional Gaming Mouse. There are a lot of mice that claim to be "Professional" grade, but if they can't stand up to the actual punishment of long hours of gaming, they suck. The Genius Gila doesn't suck and we've been putting this mouse through torture and it still is awesome. Take a look at our review for all the details.

Three months of mercilessly pounding this mouse with ARMA 3 has definitely put the Gila to the test. It relies heavily on multiple mouse functions with keyboard modifiers and the Gila doesn?t even bat an eye... It is a great mouse and I would recommend it to anyone enjoys having a lot of functionality right at their fingertips.

Rosewill Apollo Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

We have just posted up our review of the Rosewill RK-9100xB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. This keyboard comes with Cherry MX Blue switches and delivers a very solid experience. It's not a cheap keyboard - in price or in quality - and it makes a great addition to your gaming toolkit. Take a look at our full review and see why this is the keyboard that make our reviewer switch to mechanical keyboards.


Quote
The feel and sound of this keyboard did take some getting used to. I have always used decent, but non-mechanical keyboards in the past. The Apollo definitely changed that for me. I really like the feel and the feedback. There is no confusion whether you missed hitting that key in battle anymore.

OCZ Vector 150 120GB SSD

We have just posted up our review of the 120GB OCZ Vector 150 SSD. This drive is one of the first drives they've released since being part of the "Toshiba Group" and it is a mainstream unit that shows a lot of promise. It's not the fastest drive we've ever seen, but it looks good, performs well and has a great warranty. Check out our review to find out more.


Quote
This drive - although labeled similar to the OCZ Vector, is actually a totally different beast as it now features Toshiba NAND memory instead of Micron or Intel NAND. That is one of the changes we'll see in OCZ drives going forward - they will all likely have Toshiba NAND and Indilinx controllers.

Audio-Technica ATH-ANC70 QuietPoint Headphones

We have just posted up our review of the Audio-Technica ATH-ANC70 Actice Noise Cancelling Headphones. This is a great set of headphones that is geared toward the traveller, but fits very well into the life of any busy person. Their QuietPoint? technology works very well and silences most the outside world that takes you away from the escape that is your favorite music. Take a look and see how they break down and if they are worth the money in our full review.


Quote
I used these all over the place. No matter what was happening around me, my music didn?t take a backseat. The active noise cancelling did just that, cancelling most outside noise. Some sound would make it through, but it was nowhere near anything that would disrupt my experience.

NZXT Phantom 530 Full-Tower Chassis

We have just posted up our review of the NZXT Phantom 530 Full-Tower Chassis. This case is the little brother in the Phantom line-up, but while it may be a bit small in stature, it makes up for in features, performance and flexibility. If you are looking for a full-tower case, but don't want a freakishly huge super-tower, the Phantom 530 packs all your gear into a case that looks like it should be a mid-tower. Check our review for all the details.


Quote
The Phantom 530 has a great setup for hard drives. It has six standard 3.5-inch slide out trays that can support normal hard drives or 2.5-inch SSD's.  These are broke into three cages that can be configured into a multitude of positions depending on your space requirements. Whether you have large video cards that need extra room, or you want to mount radiators on the bottom, NZXT definitely put some thought into flexibility.

SteelSeries FLUX In-Ear Pro

We have just posted up our review of the SteelSeries FLUX Pro In-Ear headset. This headset is a wired unit that comes with different ends for your ears as well as for either your phone or your PC. Could this be the ultimate gamer's headset? It works for Android, iPhone and other music players as well as a PC. It does sound too good to be true. Check out our review to see how this $90 headset stacks up.


Quote
The Steelseries Flux In-Ear Pro comes with four distinct ear-bud styles. Three are soft rubber, ranging from small to large. The forth is their Comply style, which consists of a soft foam that when compressed it will expand to fit any ear. I chose the Comply style because it offered the best fit as well as supreme noise cancelling while in use.

Roccat Kone XTD Mouse and Hiro Mousepad

We have just posted our review of the ROCCAT Kone XTD Gaming Mouse and Hiro Mousepad.  This is a high-end gaming combination that will help you take your game to the next level.  The Kone XTD is one of the best mice we've ever tested and when you combine that with the slick and awesome Hiro mousepad, you've got a winning combination.  The downside is that you'll have to shell out almost $140 for this setup.  Take a look at our review for all the details.

Being able to set profiles that activated for different programs or games meant I was able to really fine tune my button and sensitivity setup.  I was definitely impressed that I didn?t have to worry about switching profiles when I opened something. With the profile linked to a specific program, it automatically loaded the profile I needed. It saved me so much time.

NZXT Phantom 630 Modular Ultra Tower

We have just taken a look at the NZXT Phantom 630 Modular "Ultra" Tower.  This case debuted at CES 2013 with a few interesting features that do set it apart from other cases out there.  It's probably one of the most customizable cases we've seen and as you'll be able to see in our review, it looks pretty nice too.  Take a look and see what this Modular Ultra Tower is all about.


Quote
All in all, I think this case is pretty decent. There has been a lot of thought put into the modular design that can be utilized by anyone. Whether you're looking for an air cooled case, or you're planning on running a wild, water cooling setup - this case can fit your needs. Novices and hardcore enthusiasts alike will find that the NZXT Phantom 630 case makes their build process smooth and easy.

Crucial Ballistix Sport VLP DDR3-1600 16GB Kit

We have just taken a look at an incredible kit of memory from Crucial.  We have the Crucial Ballistix Sport VLP DDR3-1600 MHz 16GB kit.  This kit features average timings, but pushes this into a "Very Low Profile" format that will work in almost any system - even if you have a massive CPU cooler hogging your motherboard.  If you have some RAM needs, make sure you check out our review here.


Quote
I feel that the Crucial Ballistix Sport VLP performed well. It didn?t blow any of my test memory out of the water, and actually had some points scored against it from both test modules. This being said, it didn?t score bad, because any differences in the benchmarks was nominal at best.  This memory rates comparably with both my test modules.

Crucial Ballistix Tactical LP DDR3-1600 16GB Kit

We have just taken a look at the Crucial Ballistix Tactical LP DDR3-1600 16GB Kit. This kit has a nice low profile and is designed to fit in systems with some low clearance requirements. It has a lot to offer in the way of performance and seems to be a nice solid kit.  Please check our review for all the details.


Quote
The Ballistix Tactical is definitely a low profile design, but the heat spreaders look like they can definitely help dissipate any excess heat. This coupled with the lower voltage used in default and XMP1 modes makes cooling a breeze. They also feel pretty high quality. The heat spreaders are aluminum with cutouts to create more surface area.

NZXT Phantom 820 Full-Tower Chassis

We have just taken a look at the NZXT Phantom 820 Full-Tower Chassis.  This case has become the big daddy of the Phantom series from NZXT and it packs a lot of features and improvements over the previous generations.  While it may turn some users off with the steel and plastic build, it's solid.  It is certainly worth a look if you're planning on building a new system in the near future.  Please check our review for all the details.


Quote
Once I had everything ready to go I fired this bad boy up. Immediately I wanted to play with the LEDs. This case looked cool out of the box, but the LEDs are the icing on the cake. The top and front are accented with LED lit fiber-optic bars that match the inside LED lighting. The controls for the LED system are simple as well. There is a rotary selector that allows you to cycle thru any color in the RGB spectrum.
