The middle of the week is here, with a few items along the way. We have three different Cooler Master mice up for review, as the MasterMouse MM520, MM530, and Pro L all get tested to see the differences, similarities, and which one you should pick up. For some audio needs, the Cooler Master MasterPulse MH320 Gaming Headset is tested to hear what it brings to your games, music, and movies.

Tuesday is upon us, with a few items for your viewing consideration. There's a review of the Samsung Portable SSD T5 USB 3.1, featuring 500GB and 2TB capacities to go with a new controller to enable speeds just as fast externally as you'd get internally.

Wrapping things up is a look at the Gigabyte Aorus X5 v7, a gaming laptop featuring an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 and an overclockable Intel Kaby Lake CPU.

There is a review of the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64, 64 Liquid, and 56 video cards to see what these new models bring to the table and if one of them should be powering your games.
