Crucial BX300 240GB SATA III SSD Review
Crucial has learned a lot from their previous BX Series SSDs and have applied that knowledge and experience toward making the BX300 one of the best price to performance values on the market today. The BX300 is indeed targeted at first-time SSD upgraders. As such, the BX300 is only offered in three capacities - 120, 240 and 480GB. This makes sense for a value line of SSDs because 240GB is overall the best-selling capacity point and new adopters aren't usually willing to shell out a lot of money for an SSD experience. So, what can you expect when you upgrade your spinning rust bucket to a Crucial BX300? Your computer will boot in seconds, apps load almost instantly and files save faster. Crucial says the BX300 will give you about 300% better performance than a traditional mechanical HDD. The BX300 runs cooler, quieter (silent) and consumes far less power than an HDD. Lower power consumption means longer battery life for laptop users. Crucial claims the BX300 is 90% more power efficient than an HDD. Additionally, SSDs are far more reliable than mechanical storage media. SSDs are superior to HDDs on all fronts. Once you have an SSD experience, you will never want to go back.

Ecolink Firefighter Z-Wave Plus Smoke and CO Audio Detector Review
In this review we will take a look at an alarm audio detector that features Z-Wave Plus communication, allowing it to be integrated with SmartThings and other Z-Wave controllers. The Ecolink Firefighter is the device in question, and I picked one up at The Smartest House for about $40 in hopes that I would end the uncertainty surrounding my previous attempt to integrate my smoke detectors using a contact sensor.

Flexispot Deskcise Pro Review
Our verdict of the Flexispot Deskcise Pro :Stable enough to type or use a trackpad and still get a workout without realising it, the Flexispot's versatility means it can double as a standing desk when you get tired. 910Theres no doubt that our sedentary lifestyles are driving factors of the current obesity epidemic. We spend 8 hours a day sitting at a desk, then get home and binge the latest Netflix originals. Its tough to maintain a healthy balance, especially if you live in the city and just cant find the time or confidence to go to a gym.

Logitech MX Master 2S Wireless Mouse Review
The original MX Master by Logitech ended up being one of their most popular wireless mice to date largely thanks to its Darkfield laser sensor and its long battery life of up to 40 days. The brand new and updated MX Master 2S offers a faster Darkfield laser sensor, longer battery life of up 70 days and many extra goodies which we've been testing for almost a full month now.

Microsoft Surface Book 2 Review
Nearly the ultimate laptop. First unveiled way back in October 2015, Surface Book had many of us grinning when Panos Panay revealed the device's hybrid nature by detaching the so-called Clipboard. But then came news of middling graphics performance, the absence of USB Type-C and a somewhat wobbly display. Fortunately for fans of the original concept, the Surface team has been working to perfect those perceived wrongs and has edged closer to perfection with the refreshed Surface Book 2.

From the outside, you'd be hard-pushed to tell the difference, but that's no bad thing. Microsoft has maintained a consistent design language throughout the Surface range and the fact that you know a Book when you see one is a positive. The gap when folded between the lid and keyboard has always divided audiences, but we quite like the unique appearance and there are other attractions; the gap keeps the keys from touching the screen and the way in which the "dynamic fulcrum hinge" curves like the spine of a book is really quite beautiful.

Mushkin SWAP 32GB USB 3.1 Type-C Flash Drive Review
Today we are taking a quick look at the Mushkin SWAP 32GB OTG drive. This drive supports USB 3.1 speeds as well as a Type-C connection for hooking up to your mobile device or new laptop / ultrabook that has a USB Type-C connection. It's small, and while some may say that size matters, Mushkin states that it's "Rigid in all the right places." So, it's. Right.

The Swap comes in 32GB and 64GB versions and the read speeds are impressive at 180MB/s and 225MB/s respectively. The downside with the 32GB version is the write speeds are a fair bit slower than it's larger sibling. They clock in at 20MB/s and 65MB/s respectively. On the read side of things, the 45MB/s difference isn't all that big of a deal as the read speed of both is fast, but on the write side of the equation, 45MB/s slower than 65MB/s feels like an old USB 2.0 flash drive.

OWC Mercury Helios 3 TB3 Expansion Chassis Review
For a media professional, data transfer is everything. The faster one can move and manipulate media, the more efficient the machine becomes. We take it for granted really but the massive work to perfect everything you watch on TV is incredible… and the ability to move media quickly is central to efficiency. This is where Thunderbolt 3 stands out. TB3 increases data transmission to 40Gbps which is 5GB/s theoretically, but breaks down to a maximum of about 2.8GB/s in reality. Where we use to have simple HD files, they have grown to 4K, 5K and now 8K and media of that resolution simply cannot be run through a USB. The trick…is Thunderbolt 3 and the external devices companies envision to solve this speed and data storage problem. This is where the OWC Mercury helios 3 PCIe Thunderbolt 3 Expansion Chassis comes in.
