QSAN XCubeNAS XN5004T NAS Review

QSAN's XCubeNAS XN5000T series of NAS units are designed for the workloads of both workgroups and SMB environments. Given that direction, you won't find a plethora of consumer-oriented applications like multimedia transcoding, media servers, or the like. Instead, the XN5004T we are reviewing today offers a solid base of tools and features for getting work done in an efficient and reliable manner.

Synology DiskStation DS1618+ Review

Synology, a tried and true provider of NAS, networking, and surveillance products, recently released the DiskStation DS1618+, a NAS aimed at providing both home and small-to-medium sized businesses with a scalable storage solution. Offering room for up to six drives, and the ability to upgrade to a 10Gbps NIC or M.2 SSD caching, the DiskStation DS1618+ looks to be a powerhouse system.

Tesoro Zone Evolution Gaming Chair Review

With designs inspired by automotive racing seats, gaming chairs have become one of the next big items to add to your setup. With designs and models from many of the names and brands we have all come to know, gaming chairs seem to be here to stay. We have taken a look at a few chairs in the past few months, and today we are back with a model from Tesoro. The Tesoro Zone Evolution is an ergonomically designed gaming chair with a larger seating area and a good number of features.

Bloody B930 Light Strike Optical Gaming Keyboard Review

Back at CES 2018, the ThinkComputers crew met up with the team from Bloody to check out their latest offerings aimed at the gaming community. While getting the rundown on all of their latest products, we were shown a few new keyboards that feature Bloody's Light Strike (LK) Libra technology, which uses optical detection as opposed to mechanical connections to register key presses. One of those keyboards is the B930, a ten-keyless model that includes RGB lighting, liquid spill resistance, and a sturdy metal body. We have seen many other keyboards that use non-Cherry mechanical switches, but we have yet to take a look at an optical switch keyboard that still retains the mechanical switch feel. That all changes today with our review of the Bloody B930.

HAVIT HV-KB395L Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

Back in October of 2017, we looked at a mechanical gaming keyboard from a company that we hadn't really heard of before, HAVIT. Now we are in the spring of 2018 and have in our possession another mechanical keyboard from HAVIT, this time with a bit of a twist. The HV-KB395L is a low-profile mechanical keyboard that utilizes Kalih PG1350 low-profile Blue switches, resulting in a height of just 22.5mm. Add in some RGB lighting and we think the HV-KB395L might just be a winner. Let's see if our initial observations turn out to be accurate.

Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-OMEGA Case Review

Back in October of 2017 we looked at a budget-oriented case from Corsair, the SPEC-04. Jump forward a few months to CES 2018, and we were presented with a new case from Corsiar's Carbide series, the SPEC-OMEGA. Packing a similar angular design as other recent SPEC cases, the SPEC-OMEGA is a mid-tower ATX case with bold looks. Add in support for plenty of cooling, as well as some integrated lighting and tempered glass side panel, and you have the makings of a pretty good case. Let's see if the SPEC-OMEGA lives up to our exSPECtations.

AZIO ATOM Ambidextrous Gaming Mouse Review

AZIO has really impressed us in the past, especially with their lineup of retro classic mechanical keyboards, and today we have a product that keeps with the trend of doing things a little differently. The ATOM is AZIO's ambidextrous gaming mouse designed to be a solid fit for both left and right-handed gamers.
