IDAPT I3 Universal Desktop Charger Review

If you are anything like me you have quite a few gadgets lying around, most with their own chargers. This means you have a bunch of different cords to plug in, which takes up most of your power strip and just makes a mess of wires and connectors. While there is nothing we can do about all of the chargers that come with these devices there is something you can do about the mess. This is where the IDAPT I3 Universal Desktop charger comes in. It is a simple device that has 1 power connection and allows you to charge up to 3 devices at the same time! Let’s take a look…

Accell UltraAV DisplayPort to DVI Multi-Monitor Adapter Review

I’m a multi-display guy and I have been for a long time. It is very hard for me to work with just one display. I really like to have my work on one screen and other things like instant messenger, iTunes, and Twitter on the other screen. This is pretty easy to do when you have a desktop system, but what about a laptop. Many people are moving away from desktops and going to a laptop as their main system. I would love to do the same, but I cannot work on a small laptop screen. Well Accell has just the thing for me the UltraAV DisplayPort to DVI Multi-Monitor adapter. This little device will allow you to enjoy multiple monitors from a single DisplayPort output, let’s take a look…

Choiix Power Fort Portable Battery Pack Review

Sometimes when you're on the go, electric outlets are either impossible to find or rarely available. Moreover, it's dreadfully inconvenient to have to plug in when you could be moving, all because your power-hungry smartphone has a battery that lasts what seems like minutes. Enter mobile power packs, such as the Choiix Power Fort battery pack. It's a small black box which has two purposes: charge your small electronics and double as a flashlight. ThinkComputers has the review.

G.Skill Phoenix Pro 60GB Solid State Drive Review

We reviewed our first SandForce-based solid state drive about a month ago and since then the SandForce drives we have checked out have either been 120 or 128GB drives.  While these are nice drives many people still cannot afford them.  Today we will be looking at a 60GB drive that is based on the SandForce controller.  The 60GB size is perfect for most systems as you can fit most of your programs and operating system on the drive then just use a regular SATA drive for all your media and other things.  The 60GB size is also great for upgrading your laptop’s hard drive.  Let’s check out the G.Skill Phoenix Pro 60GB Solid State Drive.
