Gigabyte Gets Honoree for Making PC Simple to Build

Many years ago when I built my first PC, there was no real thought to cable management, clean builds - or even windows in the case for that matter. Life was restricted by floppy drive cables, 80-pin IDE cables and a lot more clutter. Things have slimmed down and gotten a bit easier, but cable management still is an art-form. Some cases are tough to build a clean PC in, while others make it much easier. Gigabyte has put together the AORUS STEALTH 500 - and this is an assembly kit that makes your PC look master class.

Check out the video below, then head on over to Gigabyte's site to see more details. This is a work of art.

 

ZeroWheel at CES 2023

CES is always full of lifestyle and fitness products (as well as tons of cell phone cases at Eureka Park), and many of them appear to be gimmicks. Over the past few years, I've taken a good, hard look at my health in order to perform better as a competitive athlete. I've shed a bunch of weight, improved my cardio and am on a quest to build some muscle. I'm a geek at heart and the challenges and fitness tracking I receive in my Garmin Instinct Solar help me stay on track. When it comes to motorcross, cycling and running, I'm all about goals, progression and improvement.

A product like the ZeroWheel piques my interest as it fills the gaps in my training.

ZeroWheel also acts as a personal training tool, providing data outputs and seamlessly linking to your smartwatch or phone to monitor your workout and provide feedback. The device can track your progress and encourage competition with friends and family.

TP-Link Bets Big on WiFi 7

TP-Link has come a long way in terms of brand recognition and performance over the past few years. We've reviewed a few of their Archer products and they just keep on rolling out high-end products under a budget name that perform better than many others in the segment. A couple of their WiFi 7 products are the Deco BE95 - part of the BE33000 Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi 7 system. This product offers Quad-Band 33Gbps Wi-Fi seeps and has 10G Fiber and Ethernet ports.

 

Built for the gamer - and looking a little bit like something out of Star Wars, is the BE19000 Tri-Band Wi-Fi 7 Gaming Router. This drops a band over the Deco, and some bandwidth - coming in at a mere 19Gbps - but it makes up for with with Dual 10G ports, acceleration (think packet prioritizing for games) and more. It's pretty and a pretty impressive piece of kit.

DeepCool Comes Back to Chill at CES 2023

We met with DeepCool several times over the course of our CES run and they always impressed with quality products, attention to detail and affordable price points. They've been absent from CES for 3 years, but are back and showcasing some pretty nice hardware that can take your PC to the next level. In addition to their new ASSASSIN IV cooler, they also showcase a very nice CH560 Digital case. This is a high-airflow, low-noise case that has a tempered glass side panel, three ARGB fans and an LCD that will highlight CPU and GPU status at the same time. It's a sharp looking unit that would fit well in any den, dorm or even office.

Cooler Master Gets Creative

Cooler Master's CES 2023 pressence this year has been market with some rather eye-catching products.

LG Goes HUGE and Wireless

LG has arguably some of the coolest tech when it comes to TVs. There are other brands that offer more hype, and some that offer a lower price, but LG has pulled off some pretty nifty things in the past and they are at it again in 2023. Their new Signture OLED M3 is a 97" 4K beast that doesn't need to be plugged into your AV equipment. That's right, you can push your video content wirelessly to your massive screen. The catch is that it is "only" capable of 4K at 120Hz. There is a box - the "Zero Connect" box that sends the video signals to the TV, so you don't need special AV equipment to push the signal to your TV. Pretty much any HDMI-enabled gear can be plugged into the box and then pushed wirelessly to your TV. 

M3

 

From the Press Release:

LG's wireless solution leverages state-of-the-art technologies to provide reliable video and audio transmission to the M3's self-lit OLED screen – allowing users to enjoy content at 4K 120Hz, and clear, crisp sound, without interruption or degradation of quality. To ensure the seamless transfer of data from the box to the TV, the company developed an algorithm that instantly identifies the optimal transmission path. The algorithm also helps to minimize transmission errors or disruptions as it can recognize changes in the immediate environment – such as people or pets moving around the room – and switch paths accordingly. Additionally, for maximum signal strength, the box's antenna can be easily rotated and/or tilted to align with the TV's location. And for maximum usability, Zero Connect box is voice recognition-enabled, meaning users can turn on and manage the M3 and connected devices using simple, spoken commands.

Pepcom Recap from CES 2023

We always enjoyed Pepcom at CES. There were a lot of interested products that we got to take a quick look at, and then schedule more meetings if we wanted a more in-depth look later in the week. Also, the food. There was a ton of great food, social activity and lots and lots of Tech. Pepcom has shared a video from their Digital Experience you can view, skip through and perhaps find some good tech nuggests.

 

Samsung Announces Galaxy A14

I know, I know. Flagship phones are sexy. I also know that the A14 from Samsung that has just been announced is NOT their flagship device. I also know that these mainstream devices sell 1000:1 over the flagship products. Here in Canada this "budget" phone is set to launch later this month with an MSRP of $329.99 CAD. This 5G model brings a ton to the table for that price however. In fact, for this money, the A14 is pretty much a 2021 flagship device at a bargain price. 

Samsung A14

 

Key Features:

  • A massively upgraded 13-megapixel front camera and a sleek triple-lens rear camera gives greater depth to details, colours and subjects in every scene.
  • Responsive and adaptive 90Hz display with an expansive 6.6-inch screen size and upgraded FHD+ resolution.
  • Upgraded processor with 5G capabilities enabling apps to render beautifully and run efficiently.
  • Enduring performance with a long-lasting battery on a single charge.
  • 64GB onboard storage, with the option to expand up to 1TB with a microSD card.
  • Newly upgraded Security and Privacy Dashboard – an easy, transparent way to see how apps track data and to quickly disable unwanted tracking.
  • Partnership with Google, including Google Meet integration into messaging and video call capabilities for streamlined collaboration.
  • Built-in Samsung Health app to track body composition, sleep patterns and exercise regimen, seamlessly synced with other devices such as Galaxy Watch5.

Keep checking Samsung's site for details as this product will be available to purchase here in Canada on January 27.

Geneverse Brings Indoor-Safe Generators to Market

We don't often think of using a generator indoors as the first thought is a noisy gasoline or diesel powered unit. Geneverse is quite likely a name you've not heard before - but you should get to know them a bit better. They offer electric "generators" that can be charged via solar or plugged in and used in emergencies, construction, backyard projects, camping and more. They have two main models they are showcasing early this year and they include the HomePower ONE PRO (1210Wh capacity, 1200W continuous, 2400W surge) and the HomePower TWO PRO (4838Wh capacity, 4400W continuous, 8800W surge). 

HomePower TWO PRO

 

Each of these units come with 3 AC outlet for your 120v needs, 2 USB-C outputs with PD 100W, and 2 USB-A QC3.0. 

The battery can charge in a mere 1.5-2 hours when plugged in, and 2-4 hours via solar. Solar panels geared for the HomePower are available in bundle deals as well.
