ASUS ZenFone AR Review: Google Tango And Daydream VR Take Center Stage
Owners of the ASUS ZenFone AR may be tempted to ask their friends and co-workers, "Do you even AR, bro?". Asking that question is a surefire way to solicit puzzled (and perhaps annoyed) looks, but once they see what the ZenFone AR is capable of, those dirty glances and quizzical faces will quickly morph into ones of excited curiosity, and maybe even jealously. That's because this whole augmented reality business is rather new, and the ZenFone AR is one of only two smartphones to support Google's Tango (formerly Project Tango) AR platform.

The ZenFone AR also supports Daydream, Google's mobile virtual reality play. Being Daydream-ready is not quite as exclusive as club Tango, though it is hardly a crowded one, with less than a dozen handsets meeting the requirements for Daydream. That said, the ZenFone AR is the only smartphone out there to support both...

BitFenix Nova TG PC Case Review
BitFenix released the Nova TG, that classic looking Nova now comes with a black design and red accent as well as a white edition with subtle black accents. It will house house ATX motherboards and even has improved looks with a nice tempered glass side-panel. It's a simply straight forward chassis that can be spotted in the value segment.

Corsair TX-850M 850W PSU Review
Getting on towards Platinum quality. One key challenge facing power-supply unit (PSU) manufacturers is how to differentiate between a number of supplies that all vastly exceed the lax minimum standards laid down by the ATX specification.

It is difficult to find a PSU that doesn't score well when pushed and probed by specialist equipment, so manufacturers tend to decide between the competing factors of quality, connectors, modular cabling, semi-passive running and take account of all these with due reference to price. It also helps that the 80 PLUS organisation provides an at-a-peek reference to a supply's internal quality.

With all this in mind, Corsair has consolidated its PSU offerings into seven model ranges. Slap bang in the middle is the ATX-sized TX-M-series, and 2017 sees serious revamp of its performance credentials.

Drevo Calibur 71-Key Mechanical Keyboard Review
Recently a company by the name Drevo contacted us to take a look at a few of their products, starting with the Calibur keyboard. This keyboard has a rather interesting design as it is even smaller than a Tenkeyless keyboard with only 71 keys. This small design will definitely appeal to people who do not want a large keyboard and keyboard purists. On top of that this is a true mechanical keyboard with RGB backlighting. The really cool thing about this keyboard is that it can be used as a wireless keyboard (via Bluetooth) or wired like any other keyboard. This is definitely going to be an interesting keyboard to take a look at so let’s jump in!

Game Max Iceberg 240mm Liquid Cooler Review
While we have seen plenty of cases from Game Max over the last few months, the Iceberg 240 marks the first time we have seen a CPU cooler from the company – be it of the liquid or air variety. What makes the Iceberg 240 so appealing is definitely the price, as at £59.99 this is the cheapest 240mm liquid cooler I have reviewed in the last three years.

TP-Link recently launched its Homecare firmware platform for the C2300, C3150, and C5400. With the launch of this new firmware, the C3150 and C5400 went through a hardware revision, and today we are going to check out the V2 of the Archer C5400. HomeCare offers built-in antivirus control from Trend Micro along with parental controls and integration with Amazon Alexa. The Archer C5400 uses the same hardware as many AC5400 class platforms. At its heart is the Broadcom BCM4709 operating at 1.4GHz across two cores, and is paired up with 256MB of memory and 128MB of NAND flash. Further, we have the BCM4366; one for each 5GHz band and a third on the 2.4GHz band. Hardware switching is done in the BCM4709 while expansion is available with two USB ports.
