AviiQ ReadyClips USB Cables Review

Just about every USB device once purchases comes with a USB cable. However, any person who has a lot of USB devices can veritably explain that not all USB cables are created equal. We first saw Aviiq's ReadyClips USB cables at <a href="http://thinkcomputers.wpengine.com/ces-2012-aviiq/" title="ThinkComputers coverage of Aviiq at CES 2012">CES this year</a>. This trio includes cables with a standard USB A male connector on one end and a micro USB connector (for phones, primarily), mini USB connector (for cameras and such), or an iPod connector.

Rosewill RK-8100 Gaming Keyboard Review

What is a gaming keyboard? What specific requirements does a keyboard have before it’s considered in the “gaming” category?  There is only one thing. Yeah, a lot of people will tell you different things like, a specific number of anti-ghosting key suppression (roll over), or the fact that it features mechanical key switches, or that the keys themselves light up, but none of these things are correct. Marketing is the only thing that defines a device as a gaming keyboard. Marketing and marketing alone is the only requirement for a regular keyboard to make the jump from standard desktop keyboard to a “gaming” one. In steps the Rosewill RK-8100. Rosewill's claim to the best bang for buck when it comes to gaming keyboards.

Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB Solid State Drive Review

Solid State Drives are becoming more and more common.  I think I big reason for this is because people realize that they will give them the performance boost that they want when added to their system.  The market seems to be flooded with drives and it is really hard to choose which one to get.  One of the main determining factors to many people is the price.  Kingston’s new HyperX 3K solid state drive is designed to be very inexpensive as it uses cost effective NAND rated for 3000 program / erase cycles.  We will explain what all that means later on in the review.  This drive still sports the very popular SandForce SF-2281 controller and of course the quality you expect from Kingston.  Read on as we check it out!
