Review: Turtle Beach Recon Wired Controller

Ever since gaming got popular there have been a large number of companies trying to cash in. A lot of them by making off brand controllers. I had one for my SNES back in the day. It wasn’t licensed by Nintendo, but the bonuses it came with made it worth it. Brands like MadCatz became known as the “little brothers’ controller” companies. The companies who made off-band products that never truly matched the quality of the real thing. That being said, I was extremely surprised by the quality of...

Review: Plugable USB Docking Station – More Than Just a Hub

I recall my introductory computing class in middle school. One of our vocabulary words was peripheral. To this day, I have trouble pronouncing it correctly, and don’t ask me to spell it without the aid of a spellchecker. It is defined as a term meaning, Peripheral: connected to a computer but not an essential part of it. Back then, most of the computers were a single unit. But we knew that a Peripheral could be a light pen or a mouse. The teacher told us a mouse was easier...

Review: Kabuto Carry on Suitcase – Keeps your things (and sanity) safe

When it comes to backpacks and luggage I have sort of a weak spot. I’m not really sure when it started or why. To me the lure of an item that has just the right amount of pockets for your belongings is extreme – just ask my wife. This is why when I first read about Kabuto’s Carry On Suitcase, I knew I would be hooked. Kabuto started off on Kickstarter promising a carry on suitcase that was secured with your fingerprint and a removable case for electronics. It...

Review: OWC Envoy Express Thunderbolt Enclosure – DIY Addition

Three things come in limited supply—Time, Space, and Money. The challenge comes in balancing all of them. That can be especially true when it comes to our laptops.

You may find the easiest way to expand your device’s memory capacity is an external storage medium. OWC has come up with a way to help you stay within those three, your Time, Space, and Money.

Review: SanDisk 1TB Thumb Drive and “Extreme” Micro SD Cards

SanDisk has proven to be one of the all time leaders in personal storage devices. From Internal and External Hard Drives to SD Cards and Thumb drives, SanDisk has you covered. As the years move forward, file sizes for photos, videos and even some documents have gone up drastically. As a random comparison, today a single five minute uncompressed raw video from a mid to high level camera can be around the same file size as an entire video game that runs on a PC or console. This means...

Review: Twelve South HoverBar Duo – Adjustable iPad Stand

iPad stands are a dime a dozen. A single search on Amazon will offer you hundreds of choices, from the minimalist to the whimsical. However, most of the stands on the market are unimpressive.

Review: Belkin Ultra HD High Speed 8K HDMI cable

A lot of us have a random box of HDMI cables sitting in the closet or under our bed. How many times have we gone through 2 or 3 cords before finally finding one that actually works? Setting up a new streaming device or video game console to our TV or monitor at times feels like a chore. One of the biggest annoyances are HDMI cables that are too flimsy and we wonder why they were ever made in the first place. Some people will throw them out because...
