Hardware Roundup: Wednesday, February 22, 2017, Edition

Today, 06:50 AM

The middle of the week has arrived, with several items in tow. We have a review of the Phanteks Eclipse P400S Tempered Glass Case, offering a stunning style and visual appeal to boost whatever kind of build you have planned. The Aorus Z270X-Gaming 9 motherboard gets put to the test to see how Gigabyte's high-end gaming line stacks up to the competition. If you need a new HTPC, perhaps the Shuttle XPC Slim DX30 Barebone kit will let you get things up and running easier. Or for something more portable, the HP Spectre x360 2-in-1 laptop might do the trick, considering its redesign features a thinner and lighter style you can bring along anywhere.

Hardware Roundup: Tuesday, February 21, 2017, Edition

Yesterday, 07:02 AM

Tuesday is here, with several items giving you plenty to check out today. There's a review of the RIOTORO CR1080 Compact Case, offering plenty of potential in a small build. If you want an even more unique take on a case, then perhaps the Corsair Bulldog, an HTPC case built for 4K living room gaming, is the one to get. For those after storage, the ADATA SU800 256GB SSD offers plenty of speed and an affordable price, to boot. We wrap things up with seven free apps you can install on a new Windows build to help improve functionality.

Hardware Roundup: Monday, February 20, 2017, Edition

20 February 2017 - 06:48 AM

The final week of February is upon us, with several items kicking it off. There's a review of the Logitech G213 Prodigy RGB Gaming Keyboard, which uses mech-dome keys for a unique take on switches. For a mechanical keyboard, the Cherry MX Board 6.0, the company's flagship model, gets reviewd to see how it compares to other gaming-centric keyboards. We have a review on the Creative Sound BlasterX Kratos S3 2.1 Speaker System, an entry-level sound solution that should provide just enough power to fill the room. For a different take on WiFi, the eero Home WiFi System makes use of WiFi mesh to boost coverage and speed over traditional routers. Wrapping things up is a way to remove ads, Office offers, and more in Windows 10.

A new case mod gets highlighted, as the HEXGEAR R80 The Force offers a stunning look and ultra-clean design for a truly spectacular style.
