5-Way Mechanical Keyboard Roundup: Top Decks For Gamers And Enthusiasts
Today's system builders have more choices than ever before, beyond just internal hardware component selection. To see just how far things have come, you need look no further than the PC chassis market. There are so many options to chose from that, as a consumer, you can be selective about virtually any aspect of the design, from the type of RGB fans it comes with, to the implementation of tempered glass panels. This wasn't always the case in other segments, like the peripherals market for example, but over the last few years many popular brands have been leading the way and now peripherals, such as keyboards and mice, are as varied in design as the clothes you wear or your taste in music.

Here at Hot Hardware we have covered our fair share of mechanical keyboards, but today we might be covering the most diverse group of keyboards yet. That might be a bit of a stretch, but what we can say is we have five vastly different mechanical keyboards that we are going to dig into, type on for days, and if luck has its way, perhaps we'll be able to recommend one or more of them.

ADATA Gammix S10 512 GB Review
ADATA's Gammix S10 SSD is built using a Silicon Motion controller paired with 3D TLC flash. The SSD is cooled by a sexy red heatsink that not only looks pretty but also keeps the drive cooler than other NVMe SSDs we tested before. Priced at $210 it's one of the most affordable PCIe x4 drives on the market.

Aerocool Project 7 P7-L240 Review
Liquid cooling with lots of RGB. Aerocool probably isn't the first name that springs to mind when you think of liquid cooling, but the 17-year-old Taiwanese firm claims to be a leader in the gaming market and has its sights set on the UK market. The appointment of Dean Shaw, formerly of AMD and SteelSeries, as Country Manager for the UK and Ireland is a sign of intent, and Aerocool's presence is now more recognisable than ever before.

We recently had the opportunity to evaluate an Aerocool Project 7 power supply and came away suitably impressed, so today we're turning our attention to another of the firm's key products, the Project 7 P7-L240 liquid cooler.

AMD RYZEN 3 2200G and RYZEN 5 2400G Review
The 2nd Generation of AMD Ryzen kicks off with two Raven Bridge APUs, the 2200G and the 2400G, with the end aim of replacing the Ryzen 3 1200, and the Ryzen 5 1400. As a fusion of Zen+ CPU cores and Vegas GPU cores, the ultimate aim is to undermine the entry level discrete GPU market (up to $75), and offer a new benchmark in balanced, mainstream performance.

Intel Haswell (Core i5 4670K & i7 4790K) versus Ryzen & Coffee Lake: worth upgrading?
Many Hardware.Info readers are probably still using an Intel processor from the Haswell generation, such as a Core i5 4670K or 4690K, or a Core i7 4770K and 4790K. 2017 was a year of unprecedented competitiveness on the processor market. Is an upgrade to AMD Ryzen or Intel Coffee Lake worth it, or should you stick with Haswell?

The video card is usually the most popular PC component to upgrade. With all these high-res monitors and increasingly beautiful games, this part is subject to higher demands at a rapid pace. After two or three years a new video card means a serious upgrade in graphics capabilities, while the rest of your system can often last for a few years.

Ivacy VPN review: A competent VPN that doesn't mind cryptocurrencies
When you look at VPN services for regular users, you don’t often see purpose-based server recommendations, such as “use this server for streaming and this one for downloading.” Ivacy VPN, a 10-year-old service officially based in Singapore, stands out by doing just that. (It’s not the only service to take this tack—CyberGhost has a similar purpose-based approach—but it’s still rare.)

When I first opened Ivacy’s Windows app I was struck by its cleanly designed interface, which is somewhat reminiscent of HotSpot Shield. Both apps use a theme that relies on various shades of blue and very clean icons and text.

Logitech PowerPlay Review
Logitech have engineered a way around the age old issue; wireless charging beneath the mouse surface. The mouse picks up an electromagnetic field generated a few millimetres above the surface, which the G903 or G703 transfers into electrical energy to charge the batteries.

Secret of Mana Review
Secret of Mana is the ideal candidate for a remake. The original Super Nintendo game was groundbreaking and, rightfully, beloved to this day, but it hasn’t aged as well as some of its 16-bit contemporaries like Chrono Trigger, Phantasy Star IV, or Final Fantasy VI. Some quirks players gamely put up with back in 1993 are hard to overlook in 2018. Fans have been begging Square Enix to revisit Secret of Mana for years, and finally, their wishes have come true.

Or have they? This updated Secret of Mana features new 3D graphics, a completely redone soundtrack, additional story bits, and other improvements, but does it keep that magic alive? Is this the new, improved Secret of Mana fans have been waiting for, or should it only be spoken of in hushed tones? Grab your sword and a pocket full of candy, it’s time to put this revamped classic through its paces…

Sengled Element Classic BR30 9W Smart LED Floodlight Bulb Review
We covered the Sengled Element Classic LED A19 9W smart bulb in the fall of 2017, and I have been keeping my eye on their expanding lineup of products since then. Recently there was a deal on one of their other smart bulbs, the Classic BR30 9W smart LED floodlight bulb. This bulb is typically just over $14, but it does wind up being just over $7 with some promotions at Amazon. I picked one up to see how I liked it and decided to write up a little something about it.

Silicon Power Bolt B80 USB 3.1 External SSD Review
The Bolt B80 USB 3.1 External SSD from Silicon Power does sport a premium look thanks to the aluminum construction but is also easy to carry along. It comes with military-grade shockproof protection, but also rubber covers/gaskets in order to prevent water and dust penetration. For signaling data transfer activity, the product is provided with a white LED and its modular design along with the easy disassembly procedure does allow the user to replace the mSATA SSD with any other model/capacity.

SVS SB-4000 13.5″ 1200W Sealed Box Subwoofer Review
SVS unveiled the SB-4000, PB-4000, and PC-4000 4000 series subwoofers back in November. These reference quality subs replace their popular 13-Ultra series, with a level of change which is quite dramatic from the previous generation. Alterations were made to the cabinet and 13.5” driver, but the electronics received the most benefit with the introduction of a 50MHz Analog Devices Audio DSP with 56-bit filtering, discrete MOSFETs, and 1200 watt “Sledge STA-1200D” amplifier. Each of the models offer a different implementation of these fundamental elements with a sealed (SB), ported (PB), and ported cylinder (PC) option available. Which one you choose will depend on preference, and available space – these subwoofers are massive. Sealed subs tend to have a cleaner and more balanced sound than their ported counterparts, which provide a throatier BOOM. Coupled with a smaller footprint, this often makes them a better choice for most mixed use environments. So when offered the chance to review one of the new units, I opted for the SB-4000.
