Corsair Vengeance K95 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review @ Legit Reviews
Last year, Corsair released the Vengeance K90 as one of two new keyboards. It was a big gamble for Corsair entering the crowded gaming peripheral market for the first time, electing to jump in with mechanical keyboards with the K90 being a very expensive keyboard. Mechanical keyboards were catching on back then and people of all sorts gamers, typists, and computer enthusiasts had their opinions regarding the Vengeance K90 keyboard. First there were those who scoffed at the idea of an expensive keyboard, the kind of person who would be blissful with a no frills membrane keyboard. Second, some felt cheated that the K90's 18 macro keys were the only full-sized keys that weren't mechanical, but in-fact membrane. Lastly, there were those who liked the K90 for what it was. For those unsatisfied with the older K90's non-mechanical macro keys, the K95 is Corsair's response to those criticisms.

Phanteks Enthoo Primo Case Review @ Hardware Canucks
Is there such thing as a perfect case? Regardless of who you ask, the answer will likely be a firm “no”. While some enclosures come close, very few, if any can be considered optimal for gamers, let alone water cooling enthusiasts. The issue lies with supplying something for everyone and very few case manufacturers can balance that approach. Phanteks on the other hand is trying to do just that with the Enthoo Primo, a case that may have an odd name but may very well be one of the best enclosures ever created.

Phanteks has been making a name for themselves in the air cooling market with several strong products but certainly isn’t known for their cases. Indeed, the Enthoo Primo is actually their first true outing into this cluttered and highly competitive market. But what they lack in experience has been more than made up for in execution this time around.

Cooler Master N600 (NSE-600-KKN1) Mid-Tower Case Review @ HiTech Legion
My first car was a 1975 Plymouth Valiant; it had enough room for eight teenage boys to sit in and not have to touch each other. Under the hood it had enough room to sit on the wheel well, prop my feet on the tie rod and do almost anything I might need to do to the engine. I could strip that engine to pieces and put it back together with new seals in a weekend. In drastic contrast, my car today barely seems to have enough room to reach an arm in under the hood. I would be lucky if I could even change the oil on my car.

D8 iBag 8000mAh External Battery Review @ TestFreaks
Up for review today I’ve got a very useful product from a rather new company called D8, the product is called the iBag and it’s an 8000mAh portable external battery that you can take with you to make sure you’ve got power when you need it.

Tesoro Kuven 7.1 Virtual Surround Gaming Headset @ NikKTech
Audio related reviews may not be the easiest ones to perform and release especially since they do tend to take quite a bit of time (although the good thing about most is that you can do so while performing other tasks at the same time even other reviews) but all of us here happen to cherish high quality audio so we too are interested in seeing (or better yet listening) just how good all the latest headsets, headphones and earphones to hit the market really are. Now lately we've been doing quite a few related reviews so i was seriously thinking of moving away and to other product areas for a while but since i also happen to believe that we need to know first-hand exactly what it is that we are giving away to our readers today we decided to finalize and upload the review of the quite amazingly looking Kuven 7.1 Virtual Surround Gaming Headset by Tesoro.

HTC One Mini Review: Downsizing the best Android phone @ Techspot
On paper, the naming of the HTC One mini makes perfect sense. The mini is a mid-to-high-end aluminum-clad smartphone with a 4.3-inch display, designed for those who want a premium device without the massive size that’s often associated with its bigger and faster brother, as well as other Android 'superphones'.

Of course, there are some tradeoffs that also help bring the price down. Although the One mini includes an Ultrapixel camera, it doesn’t have optical image stabilization; and despite the body mostly being formed from aluminum, some plastic has crept into the design. For the more technically minded, HTC has also dropped down the SoC from a Snapdragon 600 to a Snapdragon 400, which naturally will affect its performance.
