AZiO Levetron GH808 USB Gaming Headset

It is widely believed that gaming headsets provide a much more immersive, captivating gaming experience than a speaker set up. They are also great in environments where the people around you don't fancy hearing deafening gunfire and explosions. Gaming headsets generally come in 3 different forms: wired 3.5mm headsets ,wired USB headsets and wireless headsets. One tends to usually decide which of these types to buy before considering things like 7.1 surround, Dolby audio, noise cancellation, etc. 3.5 mm and wireless headsets immediately present compelling features: the former can be used in tandem with a quality soundcard to produce sublime audio output, the latter frees the user from the burden of cables. We are left to investigate the advantages of buying a USB headset, and observe how they compare to the rest.

Fractal Design Adjust 108 Fan Controller

Fractal Design brings simplicity and style together with the Adjust 108 fan controller. This accessory has a beautiful brushed aluminum face and 6 individual slider controls. Each fan channel can power up to 36 watts of enthusiast level performance. The only component of a pc that creates any substantial noise at full capacity is the fans, and eventually it becomes the next thing on the list to find a solution for. Benchmark Reviews will examine the Adjust 108 model FD-FC-ADJ-108-BL for quality, performance, and how capable it is of toning down the white noise from fans during the times when its least desired or needed.

ADATA DashDrive Air AE400 Wireless Storage
Just the other day my wife was telling me that she needed something to put in her purse that she could use to recharge her iPhone when the battery died on her. She has a lot of kid's apps on there and the games and videos drain the battery life very quickly. If she is out and about, without an extended amount of time to plug the phone into a static charger, this can quickly turn into a big issue. Also plaguing her is the amount of space that all those Dora and Blue's Clues episodes take up on phone, leaving precious little space available for taking a thousand pictures that we'll probably never look at again. While there are plenty of options available as solutions to both of those issues, ADATA has recently released a device that takes care of both of those and more. Benchmark Reviews has the new ADATA DashDrive Air AE400, a wireless hotspot, battery charger, and media streaming device that fits perfectly into a purse or even a cargo pocket. It looks pretty stellar too. Follow along and we'll talk about everything this little device can do.

EonNAS 850X NAS Network Storage Server

All digital storage technologies are susceptible to data rot. Just ask the multimedia giant Pixar, who saw dozens of critical files disappear before their eyes, during production of the movie "Toy Story". Modern hard drives are remarkably reliable devices, but most have an average uncorrectable read error rate of 10^14. That means one read failure for every 12TB of data. The drive doesn't "crash"; it just gives you corrupted data every now and then. The only way around this is to continuously test the data, and scrub the errors as they occur. The storage industry deployed this technology in large data centers, and now Infortrend is making it available to consumers, with their new EonNAS series. The Sun-based OS in the EonNAS Pro 850x also has some other tricks up its sleeve, like data deduplication. Read on to find out more.

NETGEAR ProSafe GS110T Gigabit SmartSwitch

Until recently, there were only two types of network switches, un-managed and managed. Today, there is a new class, called Smart Switches. A blend of the two previous extremes, they're targeted to both corporate users and what the industry politely calls "ProSumers". Switches aren't reviewed by the press that often, but they are a necessary part of many home and SMB networks, so we need to look at what's available now and then. NETGEAR is a major player in the networking market, and today Benchmark Reviews looks at the GS110T, one of the less expensive offerings in their ProSafe SmartSwitch line. It's got enough GbE ports to future-proof most home installations, plus two fiber optic interfaces.
