Vivo 24k 650W...
It's not too often something comes into the lab I'm completely surprised by. Today is an exception. Folks, today's review unit comes from a brand new company on the scene, Vivo. We're looking at a 650 watt 80 Plus Gold unit that comes out of a factory we've only seen one other unit come from since I started reviewing power supplies. I can't wait for this one.

FSP Twins 500W Redundant ATX...

We're going to look at something a little unusual today. The world of the industrial power supply is a little different from what most of us are used to. Power supplies in this market have to be super well built, long lasting units that just work for years on end without complaining. Redundancy is often preferred, so billion dollar companies don't take any costly downtime thanks to failed hardware. For years, we haven't seen redundancy come to the consumer market. These are expensive power supplies, and few people need them.

Or so I thought. FSP is looking to bring the redundancy game home to us, and have clearly thought that there is more need for these units than we may be aware. Are they right? This should be a fun review. Folks, I give you the FSP Twins 500W.

Silverstone ST1200-PT 1200W...
We're visiting the Silverstone camp for the second time in a month as we take a look at their new Strider Platinum series at 1200 watts. Aside from being Platinum, this unit boasts all the promises of a high end unit - stable power, low ripple, good build quality, and lots of included accessories. We're quickly going to discover if this unit is worth the money.

Canary Smart Home Security Device Review

With the Canary All-In-One Smart Home Security Device youíre not only getting a Full HD 1080p security camera with night-vision mode and a motion sensor but also a device that records on the cloud with AES-256bit encryption, arms-disarms itself based on whether or not youíre there, analyzes the quality of the air around it and can even alert emergency services. @ NikKTech

Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 480 4G D5 OC

After all the Nvidia graphics cards that were released in 2016, we must also take the time and test the current top model from the RX series AMD. Even though we are a little bit behind from the time, there has been no fast graphics card in the new Polaris chip generation since the release of the RX480, which is a little surprising. We are just in the first month of 2017, the CES is full running, but nothing happened. Nvidia can keep the top of the sector unhindered and without much effort and demand prices that would not be possible with a real competition. @ Hardware Overclock

Sony PlayStation VR - A First-class Reality Show

Many experts have dubbed 2017 as the year of Virtual Reality and it will certainly be off to a rocking start with the wildly popular Sonyís PlayStation VR. Sony couldnít keep enough in stock to meet the demand for Christmas but restocking should get them off in a grand manner for 2017. The attraction of the PlayStation VR is that... @ Hardware Secrets

XFX RX 480 8GB Hard Swap XXX

With product reviewing, we tend to cover a product and then move on, not really revisiting it unless a competing product comes out or the next generation comes out. Most of the time this is fine, things donít change that much. But in the world of video cards, drivers play a big role and over time performance can improve or get worse. XFX sent over their RX 480 8GB Hard Swap XXX Edition video card mostly to use it with their swappable LED fans that I will be covering soon. But while I had the card I thought it would be a good excuse to revisit the RX 480 and see how itís doing. Typically AMD drivers donít have the performance early on, but age well and give improvements later on and Iíve been hearing that it may have overtaken the GTX 1060 in some games. So today let's check out the card and see how it stands now. @ LanOC

SilverStone SST-ST45SF 450W SFX Power Supply Unit Review

The SST-ST45SF may not impress with its large power output, modular design or its plethora of available power connectors since it features none of that but itís still a very compact unit with surprisingly good rail stability and noise levels. For good or bad the 92mm intake fan spins the moment you press the power button but since itís almost inaudible up to 50-60% of load I wouldnít call that a bad thing. @ NikKTech

Cooler Master MasterMouse S Review

Something we are rather fond of, and are pleased to see is the use of Cooler Masters' advanced textured surface that not only looks great, but also deters the build-up of finger-prints while providing a stable grip for extra control. Inside we find a 32bit ARM MCU, 512KB of onboard memory, and the new 7200DPI PWM3330 optical sensor from Pixart. The MasterMouse S is accompanied by similar software that was supplied with the MasterMouse PRO L, which means we can expect an advanced level of customisation and performance controls, including the Storm Tactix feature that will expand the number of programmable buttons from 6 to 9 + 1 switch. @ Vortez
